•New complexities emerged in the strange case of Gene Hackman’s fight with a homeless guy. The AP reports that the Oscar winner had given the man money and clothes over the years before their confrontation in Santa Fe, N.M., Tuesday. Hackman, 82, told police that Bruce Becker, 63, moved aggressively towards him after he refused to give him money. Says he slapped Becker once; Becker told cops it was a dozen times. No charges filed, though.
