Saints Face Potential Fines for Vitt Vicodin Theft, Report Says
Another offseason potentially brings another round of penalties for the Black and Gold. According to the Washington Post, the feds are considering a "hefty fine" against the Saints for a 2009 incident during which assistant coach Joe Vitt took Vicodin from the team's storage area.

Guidry: Potential Mardi Gras Police Brutality Case Probed by FBI, State Police
A video that shows white cops beating up two black men in the French Quarter over Mardi Gras has drawn the attention of state police, and perhaps even the FBI, according to City Councilwoman Susan Guidry. In the video first seen on Fox 8-TV, the two men are sitting up against a building. The video then shows nine plainclothes State Police officers beating up the two men.
Fight Grounds Flight in New Orleans
Two Southwest Airlines passengers tested the limits of freedom to move about the country this morning, and lost. A flight en route to Las Vegas from Fort Lauderdale was diverted to MSY after what amounted to a fistfight broke out on the plane, FBI Special Agent Kyle Harnahan said.
Latest in Loot: Cross-Dressing Crime Comes to New Orleans East Bank
The last word in a month of cross-dressing crime may have come from the man who started it all. For the second time in a month, a man got all dressed up as a woman to go out and rob a bank. At about 10:40 a.m., the man entered the Capitol One Bank at 5695 Bullard Ave. in New Orleans East wearing a curly wig, blue blouse, black pants, sunglasses, makeup, sculpted finger nails and a ladies handbag on his left arm, according to the FBI.
FBI: There's a New Special Agent in Town
Mr. Anderson will be overseeing the questioning now. A new FBI agent took charge of the New Orleans office today, the Bureau announced. Michael J. Anderson, recently oversaw investigations of Jefferson Parish Judges, the Jefferson political family and Federal Flood fraud, as well as superlobbyist Jack Abramoff and contract fraud in Iraq. If that's not enough experience, we'll also offer that he made a major coke bust in Miami in the late 1990s, foiling the arrival of 70 tons of blow. Not bad for a guy who came out of undergrad as an accountant.
Haute Heist: Cross-Dressing Crook Robs Gentilly Bank
A simple bandana just wouldn't do for the man who robbed a bank in Gentilly today. Just before noon, a desperado in drag wearing a curly wig and dark-colored tights handed a teller a note implying he was armed, and proceeded to rob Liberty Bank and Trust at 3002 Gentilly Blvd., according to the FBI. Authorities are not releasing the amount of money taken at this time, but they are releasing a full description of the robber's getup in hopes of tracking him down.
Freeh Reign: Saints Hire Former Head of FBI to Investigate Bounties, Wiretapping
Even with all the Saints scandals surrounding Bounties and wiretapping, we're still talking about a football team here, right? It's not like we need to get the FBI involved. Well, says Tom Benson, former FBI should do the trick. Pro Football Talk first reported last night that the Black and Gold owner hired the Bureau's former director, Louis Freeh, to look into the whole range of allegations that have been made about our boys.
