Charles Attacked

LONDON () -- Britain's Prince Charles was involved in a security scare Thursday when a barefoot man rushed at him and was wrestled to the ground by police.


Police said the man, dressed only in shorts and a T-shirt, lunged at the prince as he was climbing into his official car on a visit to the southern English seaside resort of Brighton.


He tried to hand the prince a note but was pounced on by police when he attempted to burst through their lines. The man was handcuffed and taken away by police. No further details were immediately available.
