Around The Weird - Bizarre News Briefs for November 8th, 2002

Portland, OR -- Bigfoot could be getting a lot of political support from Oregon's new governor Ted Kulongoski. The democrat is a longtime Sasquatch supporter, who once sponsored a bill to protect the hairy creature from harassment by penalizing assaulters with two days of picking up trash on state highways.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iranian police are hunting for a con-artist who convinced a man that he made him invisible so the man could rob banks. The thief says he paid the alleged sorcerer $625 for the spell. He was overpowered in a bank while trying to grab money from customers hands.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick won't have to pay a $5,000 fine to the NFL for having sloppy socks. The NFL had slapped Vick with a fine last month for having his white oversocks rolled down, exposing red undersocks, but decided to reduce his punishment to just a warning.

SEATTLE -- A police standoff at a house in Seattle ended after five hours when cops discovered there was no one in the home except a dog. According to the "Seattle Times," the SWAT team had believed there was a man in the house because they saw the blinds move and the door open slightly after being called to the house by a neighbor who said they had heard shots fired inside.
