No prize, just jail time, after fishing tournament scandal

A Texas bass tournament competitor admits he put a one-pound lead weight down the gullet of a fish he caught in an event last October. At stake that day was the tournament's top prize, a $55,000 boat.

Instead, he's facing 15 days in jail, five years probation, a $3,000 fine and suspension of his fishing license while on probation.
