Man Arrested in Death of Ex-‘Idol’ Contestant

Authorities have arrested a man on charges stemming from a weekend accident that claimed the life of an "American Idol" contestant at the Jersey shore.

Daniel Bark, 23, of Toms River, N.J., is charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Authorities say Alexis Cohen sustained abdomen, chest and head injuries after she was hit by a vehicle in Seaside Heights early Saturday.

The 24-year-old Allentown, Pa., resident is best known for her angry yet empowered rejection rant during the show's seventh season.

She also auditioned unsuccessfully for "American Idol" last year.
