LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have filed federal charges against a Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe on stage while Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a convention speech.

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada rancher says he's trying to determine whether federal agents damaged any of his cattle before they released hundreds of rounded-up bovines in a showdown with angry protesters over the weekend. Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze says the agency released the cattle to avoid a potentially violent situation in a decades-long dispute over states' rights and grazing on public lands. He says Cliven (KLEYE'-vihn) Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees for trespassing on federal lands since the 1990s.

FALLON, Nev. (AP) — A camper has discovered a body buried in a shallow grave off the highway in northern Nevada.

The victim, who appeared to be an adult man, has not yet been identified.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A court appearance was postponed today in Nevada for a University of California, Berkeley, law school graduate completing prison boot camp for beheading an exotic bird during a drunken chase at a Las Vegas Strip resort. Prosecutor Frank Coumou says Justin Alexander Teixeira's court date was rescheduled to May 5. Teixeira is facing three to five years' probation before he can ask to have his felony conviction reduced to a misdemeanor. Whether Teixeira is admitted to practice law in California could on depend on whether a felony remains on his record.
