Authorities say a man armed with some type of automatic weapon has taken at least three people hostage at a bank in northeastern Louisiana, just southeast of Monroe.
Louisiana State Police investigators have found no evidence that the Saints or general manager Mickey Loomis rigged Superdome wiring so opposing coaches' radio communications could be intercepted.
While state police and the FBI started a wiretapping probe into the Saints and general manager Mickey Loomis, assistant head coach Joe Vitt called allegations that Loomis' had his Superdome booth wired so he could listen to opposing coaches "ludicrous."
He had a duffel bag in the bank with him filled with items that he was going to use to torture his hostages, Louisiana State Police superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson said, to The Associated Press.
"His intent was to inflict pain and kill these individuals," he said.
