We figured Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment to be just about the sweetest and happiest place in Holly wood. But things weren't all gooey when a camera crew from Group W's syndicated "Entertainment Report" tried to shoot the exterior of his fortress on Universal's lot.

Police sent to an empty house in Pacoima early Friday to pick up trespassers arrested two without a problem, but shied away from a third. How could they handcuff an eight-foot-long python in any case? After officers gracefully backed out of the house, a city animal regulation officer was called and the trespassing snake came out peacefully. It even posed for photos.

Nathan Louis Campbell came to Los Angeles less than a month ago, driving a 2008 Dodge Avenger just purchased from a dealership in Littleton, Colo. The 38-year-old lived in Hollywood nearly two decades ago, spending a few months living on and off at Covenant House, which provides services and housing for homeless youths. It's unclear how he spent the years in between - aside from a record of petty crimes in Colorado and Florida, little is known about Campbell. As a spotty picture emerged Monday of the suspect in Saturday's deadly hit-and-run on the Venice boardwalk, investigators attempted to fill in the gaps and better understand what might have motivated Campbell's alleged crime.

A man was arrested on suspicion of trespassing after he was forced to call police when he found himself trapped in a chimney at the Sylmar Recreation Center. Police said the man had been wandering around Monday night and somehow ended up on the roof of the center, then in the chimney, where he got stuck.
