NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby has been arraigned on a sexual assault charge in a courtroom outside Philadelphia. He's being allowed to remain free on bail until his trial. On his way in and out of the building, he shook his head as reporters shouted questions at him. The charge stems from a 2004 encounter at Cosby's home outside Philadelphia with a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand. Cosby has said the contact was consensual, but prosecutors say the woman was incapacitated by drugs and wine given to her by Cosby.

GUADALAJARA, Mexico (AP) — It could be a while before 18-year-old Ethan Couch is sent back to Texas by authorities in Mexico.

He'd been on probation for a deadly drunken-driving accident when he and his mother disappeared from Texas last month. They were found this week in Mexico.

A Secret Service spokeswoman says the agents sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Two passengers in the other car were also taken to hospitals.
