    The man falsely accused by the FBI of sending letters laced with deadly anthrax spores has received a big settlement from the government, but never an apology for destroying his life. What’s more, Dr. Steven J. Hatfill told TODAY’s Matt Lauer during his first interview since the September 2001 attacks, neither the Justice Department nor the FBI has been held accountable for breaking the law and lying in their pursuit of him. “I love my country,” Hatfill, 56, told Lauer. But, he added, “I learned a couple things. The government can do to you whatever they want. They can break...

    A woman involved in a three-car motor vehicle accident March 3 was suspected of driving under the influence after she told the officer that she wasn't sure how her car got damaged. "I think I might have hit something," said the 55-year-old woman. At one point, she gazed off into the street for about 10 minutes before finding the documents the officer had requested, according to the Crestview Police Department incident report. When asked if she had any physical or mental disablities that might have contributed to the crash, she said she did not. Then she listed four medications she...

    A Brooklyn, N.Y., company is marketing a breath mint that may be so curiously strong it is raising eyebrows of concerned consumers. It’s called "AntiPoleez," and is advertised as a way to eliminate bad breath caused by alcohol, tobacco and food, My FOX New York reports. Critics say the name and marketing angle could promote alcohol abuse, leading people to believe they can pass a police breath test, or encourage underage kids to drink alcohol and attempt to cover it up. The company’s president denies that is the intention of his product. The Swiss president of the company, RNY Group,...

    Roger Clemens, future Hall of Famer, welcome to family court. No, Roger isn't getting divorced--in fact, former teammate Jose Canseco wrote that Clemens was very devoted and faithful to his wife Debbie during his baseball career. What I mean is this--Clemens has been accused in the Mitchell Report of using steroids. Clemens hotly denies this but throws up his hands in exasperation, repeatedly asking, "How do you prove a negative?" Well, how do you? This is exactly the position that so many fathers are in when faced with false accusations of domestic violence or child sexual abuse in family court....
