A Baltimore man backed out of a federal plea deal Friday but proceeded with his guilty plea in a surprising move that could net him extra prison time. Anthony Wiggins, 31, readily accepted responsibility for being a felon in possession of a handgun - two, in fact, both loaded - when the cab he was riding in was pulled over in Baltimore for broken tail lights Sept.16. He also admits to resisting arrest and trying to escape by jumping in the Patapsco River. But he refused to concede to government claims that he attacked three officers.

Lineups have changed, musical tastes have changed. But Tony! Toni! Tone! has turned 21, and founding member D'wayne Wiggins thinks that's pretty cool -- and maybe a little amazing. "Toby! Toni! Tone! is legal, 21 years old," Wiggins says with a laugh over the phone from Oakland, Calif., where he, a brother and a cousin founded the R&B trio in 1988. "We are like the soul version of the Rolling Stones." This weekend, the Tonys, as Wiggins refers to the group in shorthand, will be playing at Baltimore's eighth annual African-American Heritage Festival, part of a steady stream of musical talent that will also include Anita Baker, Teena Marie, En Vogue, Raheem DeVaughn, Terence Blanchard, Eric Roberson, Fertile Ground and Laura Izabor.

A Baltimore man petitioned Tuesday to have Mayor Sheila Dixon removed from office, arguing in court papers that Dixon "holds power unlawfully" because she was sworn into office by Gov. Martin O'Malley instead of by the city's clerk of the court. The petitioner, David A. Wiggins, also wants a Baltimore judge to install him as the interim mayor. "I had other names, but they backed out," said Wiggins, a paralegal and drug rehabilitation counselor. Wiggins fears that his case, which he filed without the assistance of a lawyer, will not be taken seriously.
