Rats! Not true...<br />
An ABC News affiliate in North Carolina reported this week that serious injuries sustained by convicted Ponzi schemer Bernie Maddoff were consistent with those suffered during an assault.<br />
Since then, however, the story has changed. Madoff was not attacked in prison, ABC's source said, but rather fell out of bed.<br />
Now, the Federal Bureau of Prisons says dizziness and hypertension were responsible for the hospitalization. Lawyer Ira Sorkin says Madoff has "had some dizzy spells and some high blood pressure."
