Tom Selleck wins battle over horse

DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) - Actor Tom Selleck has been awarded more than $187,000 after a California jury found the actor was duped into buying a lame horse.

Selleck accused Del Mar equestrian Dolores Cuenca of trying to pass off a show horse with a medical condition as fit to ride in competitions.

The defense had argued that Selleck didn't check the veterinarian records of the 10-year-old Zorro.

The bulk of the San Diego County jury's award is for the price of the horse. The rest is to cover boarding costs. A second trial next week will determine how much Selleck should be paid in punitive damages.

Selleck is best known for his role on TV's "Magnum, P.I." in the 1980s.

No prosecution for guard in model scuffle

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A criminal charge against a security guard who was accused of shoving former supermodel Stephanie Seymour into a door at her Connecticut home is being dismissed if he can stay out of trouble.

Seymour got into a dispute with guard Joseph Babnik in June when he was watching the Greenwich estate of her estranged husband, billionaire newsprint magnate Peter Brant.

Babnik told police Seymour had taken documents from him and he was trying to get them back. The former New York City police officer was arrested and given a misdemeanor summons on a disorderly conduct charge.
