Super Bowl XLVII

BALTIMORE (WJZ/CNN) - There was much rejoicing in Baltimore Sunday night.

The Baltimore Ravens won the NFL championship for the second time, defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl in New Orleans 34 to 31.

The game included an unusual turn of events.

Just a few minutes after Baltimore's Jacoby Jones returned the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown, the power in half the Superdome went off.

After about a half-hour delay, the game restarted

The restoration of the lights seemed to energize the 49ers, and they rallied, but still fell short.

Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad winner from Atlanta

(RNN) - Ben Holst and his wife were sitting on the couch at their home in Atlanta watching the Super Bowl when the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl ad he helped produce popped onscreen.

It was only then he knew the goat was victorious.

"We had no clue," he said. "You had to watch the Super Bowl to know you'd won."

Holst, who owns an Atlanta production company called Tunewelders, did the post production sound for the commercial about a Doritos-crunching goat. He was part of a team headed by ad creator Ben Callner, whom Holst calls a "good buddy" and frequent collaborator.

Mr. and Mrs. Holst didn't break into a touchdown dance when the ad aired.

"We were speechless," he said. "She grabbed my arm. I lost my breath and we watched it play out."

They found King Richard III

LEICESTER, ENGLAND (CNN) - An incredible historic discovery in England is confirmed - remains found under a parking lot belong to a notorious English king.

British scientists announced Monday a skull found in central England is that of Richard III.

Archaeologists found the body of a man buried beneath a parking lot in Leicester last year.

The scientists say DNA tests confirm "beyond reasonable doubt" the bones belong to the long-lost king who died in battle in 1485.

They made the link using the DNA of a relative of the former king.

Richard the Third was made famous to later generations in Shakespeare's play of the same name.

Woman flips off judge, gets thrown in jail

MIAMI (WSVN/CNN) - An 18-year-old woman charged with possession of Xanax, instead of being released on bail, is locked up for 30 days in contempt of court after flipping off a judge.

Penelope Soto angered Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Jorge Rodriguez Chomat at a bail hearing.

Initially, because Soto had no prior arrests, the judge set bail at $5,000.

When Soto told Chomat "Adios" as she left, he increased her bond to $10,000. Soto responded with profanity and the middle finger.

CNN's senior legal analyst Jeffery Toobin says the punishment is on the harsh side but still normal.

"She was way outside those rules, and she had to live with the consequences," he said.

Soto's public defender had no comment.

CBS Atlanta News reporter gets punched

GAINESVILLE, GA (CBS ATLANTA) - Investigative reporter Jeff Chirico took a blow to the chin while investigating a businessman charged with stealing customers' tax refunds.

A CBS Atlanta News undercover investigation found Richard Wilder, 43, of Braselton, operating a new business in Gainesville weeks after he was arrested by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office in September.

Wilder, who used to operate Braselton Used Auto Sales, was charged with seven counts of theft by deception and one count of racketeering for allegedly depositing customers' tax refund checks into an account and keeping the money.

A CBS Atlanta News undercover producer found Wilder selling cars and offering to complete his tax return at EZ Auto Sales at 1608 Atlanta Rd. in Gainesville.

Wilder would not answer Chirico's questions about his business.

Shortly after questioning Wilder, Chirico was approached by a man who called himself Donald Wilder, Richard Wilder's father.

As Chirico asked him questions about the business, Donald Wilder turned and punched Chirico in the chin, knocking him to the ground.

Woman meets man then tattoos his name on her face

MOSCOW, RUSSIA (WWBT) - A woman decided to tattoo a man's name on her face, after meeting him for the first time in person just 24 hours earlier, reports the Daily Mail Online.

Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia, allowed Rouslan Toumaniantz to sign 'Ruslan' over her face on the day they met. The giant Gothic script covers the woman's cheeks on both sides of her face.

The couple met in a chat room on the Internet and is planning on getting married. Lesya has already taken the last name of Rouslan, even though the couple has been engaged since January 20. She is looking to learn tattooing under his lead and also plans to get a full body tattoo.

This is not the first time that Rouslan has been in the news. Back in 2009, he tattooed 56 black stars to a 19-year-old's face, who later lied and said he had done the ink work while she slept. The teenager came clean later on saying she mislead everyone because she was afraid of how her father would react.

Kids have a food fight, get suspended, then plan another one

HENRY COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) - Parents told CBS Atlanta News some Ola High School students in McDonough planned a food fight and also a walk-out Friday in retaliation for punishment for a previous food fight.

School leaders warned punishment, including possible criminal charges, could be carried out if students proceeded.

The first food fight happened in the cafeteria on February 1. It lead to several students getting arrested and eventually expelled for the remainder of the school year.

"I was willing to take whatever punishment they gave me and make the most of it, but I feel this just went way too far," said Mitchell Daniel, an expelled student.

Many parents agreed.

"He (Mitchell) got the same offense as if he brought a gun to school, or if he brought drugs or alcohol to school," said David Daniel, Mitchell's father.

However, others said enough is enough.

"I think the parents need to grow up; set an example for their children, and the parents are not respecting the authorities at the school. When a parent doesn't show respect, than a child's not going to show respect," said Jane Askew Rutledge, a former paraprofessional at the school.
