Jury buys 'N'Sync defense' | (UPI) -- A 23-year-old San Antonio man has been cleared of charges in the shooting death of another man simply because he looks like pop star Lance Bass of the boy group N'Sync.

The San Antoinio Express-News reports Richard Brown claimed he shot and killed Eric Acosta in self-defense, saying Acosta and another man had attacked him at a house party and had threatened to cut up his face because some teenage girls had once mistook him for the 'N Sync singer.

The paper says Brown told the jury he feared for his life, believed Acosta had a knife and so he shot and killed the man.

Prosecutors contended Brown shot Acosta in cold blood but the jury bought the N'Sync defense.
