He's admitted to two charges of importing a prohibited substance. He faces a maximum penalty of $22,000. A Melbourne man shot in the stomach overnight didn't seek medical help until being pulled over for speeding. The man was waiting at an intersection when a number of men approached his car. Several shots were fired, one hitting the victim. He was stopped by police nearby and taken to hospital. The 23-year-old man's condition improved overnight, he's now listed as stable. Meanwhile, Ten News cameras have captured an apparent road rage attack in Melbourne. It's not known how the fight started, or if charges have been laid. A memorial service in Perth today for a local sailor lost at sea when his yacht was crippled by a storm a fortnight ago. Three survivors have now arrived in Cape Town aboard their rescue ship. It wasn't meant to end this way. One man missing, presumed drowned, another injured and two others lucky to be alive after their yacht was smashed in a wild Indian Ocean storm a fortnight ago. We had a skipper who was incapacitated, I had a bad cut on my head, Carol was injured. We were then realising we weren't in a position to be able to sail the boat any longer.

At the height of the storm Perth man John Blackman was swept away. The boat broached again and when it came up, John was gone. The 4-member crew had left Cape Town on the final leg of a round-the-world trip when the yacht was crippled. The skipper, Dale Petersen, the worst of the injured with a broken hip.

There is still a family tragedy in this because we've lost John but at the moment, I'm delighted, you know, my husband's here. A memorial service will be held today in Perth for John whose body has never been found. Tim Collits, Ten News. Fishermen stage a dramatic rescue in the icy waters off Alaska - those pictures next. And what caused this reporter to lose his cool? You were not there at the beginning of the interview. SQUELCHING (Righteous Brothers sing) # Oh, my love # My darling # Your touch... # Mmm.

There's still no sign of three American soldiers believed to be kidnapped by a group linked to al-Qa'ida in Iraq. 4,000 US troops have joined in the search for the three soldiers who went missing on the weekend after their patrol was attacked south of Baghdad. A group calling themselves the 'Islamic State of Iraq' claims to have the trio, it says the soldiers won't be safe if the US-led search continues. Fisherman have staged a dramatic Fishermen have staged a dramatic rescue in icy waters off Alaska. They helped pull passengers to safety after a cruise ship ran aground and started taking on water. In the pre-dawn hours passengers on a Alaskan cruise were ordered to abandon ship after the 'Empress of the North' hit a rock and started taking on water. By the time the coastguard arrived on scene the paddle-wheel ship was tilting 6 degrees to one side and passengers had to be helped to safety of other boats. The 'Empress of the North' put out a Mayday and fishing vessels, ferries and other cruise ships in the area came to a quick rescue. 281 passengers and crew were onboard. All the passengers were evacuated without injury. It was the second day of a week-long cruise. This is the fourth time the 'Empress of the North' has hit something. Most recently, the vessel was grounded last year on the Columbia River, leaving 250 passengers stranded. She's heading back and they will be taking a look at her when she is in the marine facility. The company spokeswoman says the ship didn't lose power and the crew was able to pilot her back to port with a coastguard escort. A BBC investigation into the Church of Scientology has been overshadowed by an outburst by its reporter. During an interview, John Sweeney lost his temper. The rant was then posted on the Internet by Scientologists. Locking horns. The man from the Church of Scientology and the panorama reporter. This is the moment John Sweeney admits he resembled an exploding tomato. No! Brainwashing! No! You listen to me! You were not there at the beginning of that interview! You were not there! The Scientologist had filmed the altercation themselves and posted it on the Internet with their own commentary. VOICE OVER: Sweeney's reaction was unexpected, to say the least. You did not hear or record all of the interview! Do you understand? Do you understand? In fact, the Church of Scientology filmed John Sweeney throughout the making of the documentary. The reporter claims he was also shouted at and spied on. I'm angry. Real angry! I'm very disappointed with John, he's disappointed. But when you see the program and what goes before and what comes after, you see a portrait of an extraordinary organisation which says it does so much good work in the field of drugs and human rights and will not accept any criticism about it whatsoever. So-called video ambushing where the interviewees turn the camera on the reporter isn't completely new. What is new, is their ability to attract an instant audience. Tens of thousands of people have already seen this clip on YouTube. John Sweeney has apologised but the fact this confrontation came to light at all is an illustration of how quickly the media landscape is changing.

Fresh from rubbing shoulders with royalty, American President George W. Bush has stunned crowds in Virginia and conducted an orchestra.

Melbourne defender Ben Holland will tonight face the AFL tribunal on the serious charge of eye-gouging. But three other investigations from a spiteful weekend of football have this morning been cleared by the match review panel. Saturday's all-in brawl hogged the limelight at yesterday's match review panel. COMMENTATOR: Didak's down, Fevola's in it. $32,000 in melee fines were dished out to Collingwood and Carlton. But this morning a number of separate incidents have been more closely scrutinised.

And it's not good news for the Demons. Ben Holland must face the tribunal to answer the serious charge of face contact.

Johnson was cleared of a head butt on the Demon.

Other cases against Bulldogs Scott West and Melbourne's Simon Godrey and an investigation into a heat butt not captured by television cameras Cat hothead Cameron Mooney have all been cleared. In other football news, the AFL has met with Ben Cousins who remains some way off a return to the game. He's obviously determined and wants to play football again but he needs to get his health in order. In injury news, Crows skipper Mark Ricciuto's back trouble has flared again.

His comeback has been placed on hold. But it's slightly better news for the Saints Matt Maguire. His road back from stress fractures may be quicker than expected. It's going really well. Tim Hodges, Ten News. Wallabies star Stephen Larkham has announced plans to head to Scotland after the World Cup. The 32-year-old Brumbies fly half has sorted through a number of offers eventually deciding to settle with Edinburgh. Larkham has 95 Test caps for Australia crossing the line 24 times in his international career.

He follows in the footsteps of team-mate and Wallaby skipper George Gregan, who's off to France after the World Cup. Lleyton Hewitt's answering his critics at the Hamburg Masters, opening with a convincing win over Argentine Agustin Calleri.

Hewitt cruised past unseeded Calleri in a straight sets win, 6-3, 6-4. COMMENTATOR: Lleyton Hewitt - solid performance from the Aussie. He'll face Juan Ignacio Chela in the second round after the Argentine downed compatriot Guillermo Canas 6-1, 4-6, 6-1. Organisers of the Billabong Pro surfing contest in Tahiti have made a rare decision to extend the event which was due to wrap up today.

A 3m swell's expected to hit Teahupoo on Thursday with surfing officials opting to hang out until the big waves hit. All going to plan the quarterfinals will get under way then with four Aussies remaining in contention - Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Luke Stedman and Kai Otton. Embattled England batsman Andrew Flintoff's been overlooked as captain for Thursday's first Test against the West Indies, selectors instead opting for Andrew Strauss. British tabloids are claiming last summer's 5-nil Ashes surrender and drunken escapades in the Caribbean have ended Flintoff's dream of leading his country again. Freddie says he's more worried about improving his batting. I've been working with Mike Watkins down at Old Trafford and Neil as well and I'm feeling good and confident about walking up to the crease. But it may be a while away. He's in doubt for Thursday's clash due to his recurring ankle injury. The NRL has avoided a Supreme Court battle with its major sponsor Telstra and half-owner News Limited. The feud, regarding fair use of game footage, prompted Telstra to withhold its installments of the 6-year $90 million sponsorship deal with the NRL.

Overnight, News Limited heeded Telstra concerns, agreeing to limit the sale of game footage to rival telecommunication companies. The cease-fire resulting in a hefty $8 million payment to the NRL overnight.
