Second bear killed in a week on Interstate 4


The cuffs may have been familiar but not the circumstances for porn actor Stormy Daniels, who was arrested Saturday on domestic battery charges. Police say Daniels came home after 7 p.m., confronted her husband about an unpaid bill and began throwing things in their home at 2804 W Wyoming Ave. She told officers she was just trying to get the car keys that her husband was holding over his head and accidentally hit him in the face several times, according to the arrest report. He was not injured. Daniels was booked under the off-screen name Stephanie Gregory Clifford, and posted $1,000 bail Sunday afternoon. Daniels grabbed national headlines last year when she announced she may run for Congress in Louisiana in 2010. She would be vying against Sen. David Vitter, who was linked to the high-profile D.C. Madam in 2008.
