Madoff Reportedly Assaulted in Prison

Bernard Madoff was reportedly hospitalized for injuries consistent with an assault.

A North Carolina television station reported on its Web site Thursday that Madoff was hospitalized at Duke University Hospital last week with facial fractures, broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

A U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman later said that Madoff is being treated in a prison hospital for hypertension and dizziness.

The Jewish financier was jailed after his multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme that defrauded thousands and caused the collapse of several Jewish charities was exposed.
