The Manhattan DA's office has filed documents containing details about what accused sexual attacker Dominique Strauss-Kahn said in the hours after his arrest last month. Apparently Strauss-Kahn initially thought that the Port Authority police who escorted him off his plane were "employees from his hotel who had come to bring him his missing cellphone." It was also revealed that Strauss-Kahn at first told a detective, "I have diplomatic immunity," but later said, "No, no, no, I’m not trying to use that.” Which is good, because he couldn't.
