Lottery hoax causes riot at Ohio coat store...

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A woman who claimed she won the lottery is facing criminal charges after creating a frenzy inside a clothing store in Columbus, Ohio.

On Tuesday, the woman told shoppers at a Burlington Coat Factory that she won the lottery and would pay for everyone's items.

She did pay for some shoppers' items, then left after maxing out her credit card at $5,000. She said she'd be back, but didn't return. Police arrested her for fraud and inducing panic, because of the commotion in the store.

She did not win the lottery. It's not clear what she was up to.
