The tall ships dueling off the coast of Dana Point were only supposed to look like they were at war. But after the cannon aboard the tall ship Amazing Grace rumbled, the stinging pain that Donna Reed felt in her legs was quite real. "It was like a scene from 'The Exorcist,' " said Reed, her wounds still sore days later. "I started to bleed in several different areas. " She had been shot. So it went during what was supposed to be a climactic moment in the Ocean Institute's annual tall ships festival: the Saturday evening mock cannon fight that would simulate the spectacle of a historic battle on the high seas.

CARACAS, Venezuela - Government forces used water cannons and tear gas Wednesday to turn back opposition marches in the capital, where borough mayors defied a Supreme Court order that they clear street barricades. Clouds of gas hovered near the entrance to the Central University of Venezuela in Caracas and at the adjoining Botanical Garden, where protesters had converged to join a march headed to the public defender's office. "It was horrible. I had to run a long way," said Maria Alfonzo, a 22-year-old science student who was leaving the campus when she was overcome by the gas. "The National Guard is supposed to protect us, not threaten and mistreat us. We should have the right to protest.

LAS VEGAS -- Just when you thought it was safe to go back on those mountain trails. In a case that has stunned authorities with its ruthlessness, two Utah men have been arrested in connection with a pair of deadly makeshift booby traps set up along a popular hiking trail. One of the traps involved a trip wire triggered to send a 20-pound, spiked boulder swinging into an unsuspecting victim. The other was designed to trip a passer-by into a bed of sharpened wooden stakes. The two suspects, ages 19 and 21, told investigators after being arrested last weekend on suspicion of misdemeanor reckless endangerment that the traps were intended for wildlife.

But did Field allow her union membership to expire? She's currently starring opposite Michael Caine in Cannon Films' "Surrender," a contemporary comedy that's using a non-union crew. A rep for Field doesn't think that's such a big deal. ("Does Cannon even make union pictures?" she quipped.

Perhaps not realizing they would receive so much media attention, singer-songwriter superstar Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon , pulled their Bel-Air home from the Multiple Listing Service only four days after listing it for sale at $12.995 million. The home was listed on the MLS as a "celebrity estate. " Would-be buyers and their agents can consider themselves on notice that the couple have designs on selling. Their gated three-acre property centers on a Hamptons-inspired mansion with canyon, city and reservoir views.

CAIRO -- Egypt's tough new anti-protest law got its first major test Tuesday when dozens of demonstrators gathered in the capital to protest harsh police tactics -- and were met with drenching water-cannon blasts. The anti-protest measure, which took effect Sunday, forbids spontaneous street demonstrations, which have been a prominent feature of public life here since the enormous 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak, the autocratic longtime president. The private television channel CBC quoted an Egyptian police spokesman as saying that Tuesday's rally, commemorating the earlier death of a protester at police hands, was broken up because the organizers had not sought permission beforehand for the gathering, as the new law requires.

Nick Cannon, who appeared on "All That" with Amanda Bynes back in the day, has written an open letter on his website to his "sister," pledging his support in her time of need and declaring her situation to be "no laughing matter. " Bynes is on an extended psychiatric hold for evaluation after being involuntarily committed on a 5150 call in Thousand Oaks early last week. She was detained after starting a small fire in a stranger's driveway and igniting her own pants in the process, then fleeing to a nearby liquor store to rinse off her small dog, which may have had gasoline on it. The "America's Got Talent" host was moved to write the letter , he said, after being " hit with an onslaught of questions about someone I consider family, someone I watched grow up, and someone I genuinely feel is one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting, Amanda Bynes.

ISTANBUL, Turkey - Hundreds of riot police firing tear gas stormed a central Istanbul park Saturday, tearing down tents and clearing out demonstrators in a bold, if politically risky, move by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to stem more than two weeks of antigovernment protests. The police assault at twilight sent hundreds of protesters scurrying for cover as street clashes echoed through the city. The swift and overwhelming action by security forces highlighted the country's deepening political divide and the potential danger Erdogan faces in further provoking a large segment of Turks critical of what they see as his authoritarian tendencies.

Police forces surrounded Gezi Park shortly before nightfall. They moved beneath sycamore trees toward tents and crowds of hundreds of protesters. Some demonstrators reportedly threw rocks but the dissidents appeared to be overwhelmed by security forces, whose lines spread into adjoining Taksim Square.

Could Cannon really be shooting a movie in the land of apartheid? When we were first tipped about it, Cannon denied that parts of "My African Adventure" (now retitled "Ben, Bonzo and Big Bad Joe") were filming (with some black actors) in South Africa. Asked a Canon P.R. rep, "Why would you even think we'd film over there?" She insisted that it was Zimbabwe where they were filming--"the same sets we used for the two Allan Quartermain films."

Apparently, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer feels she just hasn't yet done enough to tarnish her state's reputation. After defiantly defending SB 1070, the noxious Arizona law that sought to bully immigrants into leaving the state - only to have the U.S. Supreme Court strike down the bulk of it - she is now waging a new fight against immigrants. Brewer is back in federal court, this time defending her 2012 executive order denying driver's licenses to young immigrants who have been granted temporary protection from deportation by the Obama administration.

Mariah Carey, whose clash with fellow "American Idol" judge Nicki Minaj has made headlines overshadowing the talent competition, warned Fox before the season began that having herself and the rapper-singer on the same panel could cause trouble, said her husband, Nick Cannon. In an appearance on the "KTLA Morning News," Cannon said of the feud, "My wife [had] foreseen all this. She tried to tell the network, 'I don't think this is going to work. I'm afraid ... I don't need this.'" Cannon said Carey warned that pairing her and Minaj on the same panel was "taking it in the wrong direction, because this is going to turn into one of those reality shows.
