LAKE ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) -- A St. Louis sports agent is the buyer of a mansion tied to the US Fidelis scandal, and he's getting it at a relative bargain.
   Agent Harold C. Lewis was the lone bidder for the Lake St. Louis mansion that US Fidelis founder Darain Atkinson spent $27 million to build. A bankruptcy judge on Wednesday approved the sale to Lewis for $4.75 million.
   Last month, the auction of a 144-acre farm once owned by Atkinson and his brother, Cory, was auctioned for $1.1 million. Money raised in the auctions will eventually help pay creditors.
   US Fidelis, based in Wentzville, Mo., was once among the nation's largest auto warranty service dealers. In March, the company filed for bankruptcy amid accusations it used illegal telemarketing ploys and sold worthless warranties.
