Kill Bill actress Vivica A. Fox is brushing off the claim that she's the latest star of a celebrity sex tape. An unscrupulous boyfriend allegedly filmed the unsuspecting Fox, according to Internet reports. Atlanta blogger Sandra Rose contends that the cad captured the intimacy with his cell phone and that he later e-mailed friends the footage of Fox.

ATLANTA -- Authorities accused Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis yesterday of obstructing their investigation into the stabbing deaths of two men and prepared to seek murder indictments today against the player and two of his acquaintances. Police and FBI agents launched a nationwide manhunt for Lewis' two associates, one from Baltimore and the other from Miami. Both are convicted felons. City officials, in their first public comments on the high-profile case that grew out of Super Bowl revelry, accused Lewis -- who has been in custody since Jan. 31, the night of the killings -- of covering for his buddies by lying to detectives and even framing another acquaintance.

ATLANTA -- Police Chief Richard Pennington pleaded for calm in print and in person yesterday as residents protested the death of an 88-year-old woman who was gunned down in a shootout with narcotics officers. "This tragic incident has shaken this community to its core, and the residents deserve honest answers," Pennington wrote in an editorial in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "But I must ask for patience and calm as we get to the bottom of the events of Nov. 21." That evening, according to police accounts, plainclothes officers stormed the house of Kathryn Johnston, whose age was previously reported as 92. They had obtained a warrant that didn't require them to knock, and they were looking for drugs.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis was charged with first-degree murder last night in the stabbing deaths of two men outside an Atlanta nightclub in the early morning after a night of Super Bowl parties. In arresting Lewis, Atlanta police said he was suspected of being one of several men who fled the scene of the killings in a limousine.

ATLANTA -- Lawyers representing linebacker Ray Lewis on murder charges said yesterday that they have interviewed all of the occupants of the limousine that sped from the scene and that each clears the Ravens player of wrongdoing. Donald F. Samuel, one of the attorneys, would not reveal their names. But he said they confirm Lewis' story that he acted as a peacemaker and did not know that anyone had been stabbed until hours after the Jan. 31 incident. Those statements contradict the account that the driver of Lewis' rented limo gave to Atlanta homicide detectives.

ATLANTA -- A Baltimore man who has been charged with Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in the stabbing deaths of two men was reportedly in Atlanta last night preparing to surrender to police.

Atlanta police questioned Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis about a double murder in the city yesterday morning at which his leased limousine was seen. After a night of Super Bowl parties, two men were stabbed to death in Atlanta's Buckhead entertainment district after an altercation, Atlanta police said, and several of the participants left the scene in a black Lincoln 220 Navigator limousine leased by Lewis as several shots were fired from inside the vehicle. Officers and detectives involved in the investigation said Lewis was in the limousine as it fled the site, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said in today's editions.

ATLANTA -- The driver of a limousine that carried Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis to posh Super Bowl parties has identified two of the player's friends as being involved in a fight that ended with two men fatally stabbed, a source familiar with the case said yesterday. After the scuffle outside an upscale nightclub, Lewis said, "Let's get out of here," and his driver, Duane Fassett, drove away with the football star and others, according to the source. Fassett saw the fight and helped Atlanta police identify two of the combatants, but did not see the stabbings, the source said.

OVERZEALOUS prosecutors created an embarrassing fiasco in what Baltimoreans call the Ray Lewis murder case, and Atlantans call the Buckhead stabbings. Remember the comments of the football star's lawyer the day Mr. Lewis was indicted? Attorney Ed Garland called it "a completely inadequate, careless and sloppy indictment" in which prosecutors had "indicted before investigating." Time proved him right. Mr. Lewis copped a misdemeanor plea for lying to police and a jury cleared two other defendants in the killings in the Buckhead entertainment district.

ATLANTA -- The women wised up, the police cracked down and the result was a relatively lame Freaknik. Word that Atlanta police were cracking down on the slightest infractions apparently rippled to surrounding campuses, causing attendance to drop and limiting trouble that was widespread in recent years. "There was no action here," Police Chief Beverly Harvard said yesterday as she toured a remarkably calm downtown. "There were hardly any women this year. "Yesterday we drove around and we saw a lot of young men between the ages of 16 and maybe in their middle 20s and they were actually looking for the women.
