PEOPLE IN BRIEF: Bieber concert canceled after crowd crush

SYDNEY -- Thousands of frenzied teenagers, who spent the night camped out by Sydney Harbour awaiting a concert by pop star Justin Bieber, surged toward the venue Monday morning, sending at least eight girls to the hospital and injuring several more.

Police canceled the performance after the swarm, which may have begun when rumors spread that the 16-year-old Canadian heartthrob had arrived early. In the crush, at least 10 girls fainted, and paramedics had to pull them out of the crowd, according to Australia's Network Seven. Of the eight sent to the hospital, one fractured her knee cap, though most had hyperventilated.

Quaids arrested after failing to appear in court

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Randy and Evi Quaid showed up in a criminal courtroom two weeks late Monday and were arrested on outstanding warrants, authorities said.

The actor and his wife were ordered held on $100,000 bail and told to return for a court hearing Wednesday, Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter said in an e-mail.

The couple have repeatedly failed to show up in a Santa Barbara court for hearings in a felony case alleging that they defrauded an inn out of more than $10,000. They have pleaded not guilty, and their attorney has said the money has been repaid and the Quaids hope to resolve the case.

But the couple's repeated missed appearances cost them $40,000 in bail that they forfeited after missing an April 12 hearing.
