BERLIN (AP) — German police say one man has died and eight other people have been hospitalized in serious condition after unknowingly drinking Champagne spiked with Ecstasy at a bar in Bavaria. The man who died was 52 and the others are between 33 and 52. The German news agency dpa reported Monday that the group of people fell ill shortly after having shared a bottle of Champagne on Saturday night in the Bavarian town of Weiden. Police arrived at the bar and they found people lying on the ground with cramps. Eight of them were hospitalized.
