Man Mauled by Tiger at Bronx Zoo Charged with Trespassing
NEW YORK (AP) -- A man mauled by a 400-pound tiger at the Bronx Zoo has been charged with criminal trespass.
Police said Saturday that authorities delivered a desk appearance ticket to David Villalobos in the hospital where he's recuperating.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says the 25-year-old told investigators he deliberately leaped into a zoo exhibit because he wanted to "be one with the tiger."
Villalobos remained hospitalized in stable condition Saturday with bites and punctures and a broken arm and a leg caused by the jump Friday from an elevated train that circles the exhibit.
Browne says that when a police officer asked Villalobos why he did it, he responded, "Everybody in life makes choices."
It's unclear if Villalobos has an attorney; attempts to reach relatives on Saturday were unsuccessful.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the nation must do more than just remember its fallen heroes on Memorial Day.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the country must care for the loved ones the fallen leave behind. He says the country must also make sure that all veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned.
Obama says that, above all, the armed forces must have the support needed to carry out their missions at home and abroad.
In the Republican address, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thanks the nation for its prayers and support following Monday's deadly tornado in his home state. He recalls past natural and man-made disasters in Oklahoma and says that while the state was hard hit, "we're not knocked out."
