Ten years ago: For the second time in history, an impeached American president went on trial before the Senate. President Bill Clinton faced charges of perjury and obstruction of justice; he was acquitted.

Watercooler Talk
ST. PAUL, Minn. - A scorned 21-year-old told her ex-boyfriend that he couldn't prove she was the one who vandalized his apartment on three occasions - but then, police said, she posted a picture of the damage on MySpace. The woman was charged with two felonies for the vandalism.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Ramsey County last week, she doused the inside of his house with paint - splashing it on the walls, toilet, washing machine, computer and other furniture. She also allegedly filled the house with trash and impaled a teddy bear on a pole with a knife through its head.

Authorities were still looking for the woman as of Tuesday.
