Bond upped for Erin Andrews video suspect

LOS ANGELES -- An Illinois insurance executive accused of secretly making nude videos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews posted $100,000 bond on Friday -- a much larger amount than previously imposed.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Carolyn Turchin increased bond for Michael Barrett during a hearing in Los Angeles after Andrews' attorney said the executive posed a threat to the public. Barrett already was free on $4,500 bond.

Barrett, 48, faces one count of interstate stalking and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Michael Jackson's iconic glove up for auction

NEW YORK -- A collection of Michael Jackson memorabilia, including the now iconic rhinestone-studded glove he wore when he performed his first moonwalk dance in 1983, is being sold at auction.

The glove and other Jackson items are part of a music memorabilia auction being held by Julien's Auctions at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York's Times Square on Saturday.

Jackson wore the left-handed glove, which accompanied his fedora, when he unveiled what was to become his trademark dance on Motown's 25th-anniversary TV special. It's a modified, store-bought glove covered with a mesh of rhinestones.

The glove's pre-auction estimate is between $40,000 and $60,000.

The pop icon, who died June 25 at age 50, gave the glove to Walter ''Clyde'' Orange, of the singing group the Commodores, after the 1983 performance.
