  Man dies cutting wires to city light pole 

	(Newport Beach, California-AP) -- A southern California man's
attempts to stargaze have turned deadly. 

	Police in Newport Beach say the man was electrocuted when he tried
to cut the power to a city light pole so he could view a meteor shower. 

	Police say 20-year-old Scott Millett was trying to see the shower
through a telescope at his home, but light from a nearby light pole was
hindering his view. 

	Police say Millett broke into the base of the pole and tried to
cut the main power cord when he was electrocuted.
