A Colorado man has acknowledged that he called media outlets to report that a 7-foot alligator had been captured at a Los Angeles lake -- a report that turned out to be a hoax. Alamosa County Sheriff Dave Stong said Friday that James Solvig is under investigation on suspicion of criminal impersonation. No charges have been filed. The alligator, known as "Reggie," was dumped in a Harbor City lake several months ago.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco district attorney late Friday said there was not sufficient evidence to charge the 21-year-old Lodi man who was jailed in connection with the fatal stabbing of Dodgers fan Jonathan Denver after a confrontation triggered by team rivalry. Michael Montgomery was booked into jail here just before 5 p.m. Thursday, after San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr announced he had “implicated himself” during questioning. However, Montgomery's father, Marty Montgomery, told media outlets his son had phoned him sobbing from police custody to say he had committed the act in self-defense.
