attacked the cage and chewed through
one of the floats so that it began to
sink.


The cage was open at the top so
Currie had to swim for it.

*CG file File Tape That's because the hit involved
someone else's car.

Abdul pled guilty yesterday to a hit
and run accident in December. Her
attorney says Abdul was unaware she had
side swipped the other car while
changing lanes on a L-A freeway. But
the person she hit used a cellphone to
take a picture of Adbul's car.

She was fined 900 dollars and placed
on 24 months of informal probation.
