U.S. women's soccer team star Hope Solo was arrested early Saturday morning on two counts of domestic assault at her home in the Seattle area.

According to a police report obtained by the Seattle Times, police were called to the home Solo shares with her husband, ex-NFL player Jerramy Stevens.

Kirkland, Washington police Lieutenant Mike Murray told the newspaper that officers were called because of an assault and a noise disturbance at the residence.

"There was a big party going on at her house. It was an out-of-control situation," Murray said.

At some point during the party, Solo allegedly assaulted her sister and her 17-year-old nephew, he said. "There were visible injuries on them," Murray said.

Solo will appear in court on Monday and is being held without bail.

Solo, 32, was not with the U.S. national team this weekend as they played an international friendly against France in Hartford, Connecticut. The team's Twitter account said that Solo was not available for the match.

She plays for the Seattle Reign of the National Women's Soccer League.

from espn.go.com:


Two New York Mets minor leaguers have been arrested for allegedly drag racing at speeds of more than 100 mph early Friday morning, according to a press release issued by the city of Kingsport, Tenn. 

Citing an incident report from the Kingsport Police Department, outfielders Wuilmer Becerra and Vicente Lupo were arrested, director of community and government relations Tim Whaley indicated. 

Becerra, 19, allegedly was traveling at 107 mph in a 2013 Dodge Challenger. Lupo, 20, allegedly was clocked at 104 mph while driving a Ford Mustang “in close proximity.” 

Whaley indicated that one vehicle stopped immediately in response to an officer’s siren and lights, while the second vehicle stopped shortly thereafter.

 Becerra and Lupo were charged with drag racing, a Class B misdemeanor offense. 

Both outfielders are from Venezuela and neither was carrying a U.S. driver’s license, according to the report. No alcohol was involved, Whaley said. 

Becerra was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays with Travis d'Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard in the deal for R.A. Dickey. 

Lupo played the night of the arrest as well as Saturday. Becerra did not play Friday, but since has appeared in both Kingsport games. 

A Mets spokesman said the club was aware of the arrests but declined further comment.

from espn.go.com:

Two University of Miami football players arrested on sexual battery charges against a "physically helpless" 17-year-old girl were dismissed from the team and suspended Tuesday.

Court and jail records show JaWand Blue and Alexander Figueroa were booked on the charges Tuesday. Both are 20-year-old linebackers.

According to the police report, both players admitted to buying drinks for the accuser, bringing her back to Figueroa's dorm room in the early-morning hours of Saturday and repeatedly performing sexual acts, including intercourse, without her consent while she was "physically helpless to resist."

Both players face charges of sexual battery on a physically helpless victim and are being held on $10,000 bond, according to the Miami-Dade County records obtained by the Palm Beach Post.

Figueroa is additionally charged with possession of a stolen or forged driver's license.

No attorney was listed for either man. The Coral Gables police report said the accuser, a UM student, first reported the assault to university police, which turned to the Coral Gables department to investigate.

In a statement released Tuesday, Miami athletic director Blake James said the players had been dismissed from the team and suspended and barred from campus.

"Earlier today, I permanently dismissed JaWand Blue and Alexander Figueroa from the UM football team," James said in the statement. "The University has also suspended the students from school and barred them from all campus facilities while the University conducts an internal investigation and continues to cooperate with local law enforcement.

Any allegation of a sexual assault is extremely serious, and the University will not tolerate conduct that threatens the sanctity and safety of our students and our campus. We hold all of our students -- especially student athletes -- to the highest standards of moral conduct."

Miami president Donna E. Shalala said in a statement that the university has "zero tolerance for sexual assault and gender-based violence" and has spoken to the accuser.

"There is no confusion about our responsibility as a university: We will fully and compassionately support the victim of sexual assault. I have spoken to her myself and reassured her of our full support," she said in her statement, adding that Miami has launched its own investigation into the incident and is cooperating with the police.

One of the biggest accomplishments Miami made on defense this past spring was building its depth. That, however, takes a hit with Figueroa and Blue gone.

Both played as true freshmen last year and were going to be counted on to improve a unit that has only one standout. Figueroa, who started two games in 2013 and finished with 17 tackles, was the favorite to win the starting strongside linebacker job. Senior Thurston Armbrister is expected to take that role now.

Blue was penciled in to back up middle linebacker Denzel Perryman, the best player on the defense.

Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto arrested Wednesday on marijuana possession charge

By Tasha Tsiaperas

Updated at 2:59 p.m.: Rangers catcher Geovany Soto has released a statement on his arrest on a marijuana possession charge.

“I was stopped by Grapevine Police on Wednesday night. I am embarrassed and would like to apologize to my family, the Rangers organization, and our fans that I was taken in on this charge,” Soto said in a written statement.
“Because this is an ongoing case, I cannot discuss this matter any further at this time.”

The Texas Rangers have also released a statement on the arrest.

“The Rangers organization is aware of Wednesday night’s incident involving Geovany Soto. We have spoken to Geovany, and he has apologized and expressed deep embarrassment for the situation. We have notified Major League Baseball of the incident. As this is an on-going case, this is the only comment we will have at this time.”

Original post at 1:19 p.m.:

Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was arrested Wednesday night in Grapevine on a marijuana possession charge.

Soto, 31, was pulled over for speeding around 10 p.m. in the 3500 block of Ira E. Woods Avenue, said Grapevine police spokesman Sgt. Robert Eberling.

He has been charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana under 2 ounces. Eberling said Soto was cooperative during the arrest.

The Colleyville resident is free on a $500 bail. The Tarrant County district attorney’s office filed his charges Friday. Soto has not selected a defense attorney.

Baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement lists marijuana as a drug of abuse. Soto will be referred to a treatment board for an initial evaluation. It will determine whether Soto should be placed in a treatment program. Former Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton underwent the process after admitting to using alcohol before the 2012 season.

A treatment program involves in- and out-patient treatment and follow-up testing. Soto would be subject to discipline from the office of commissioner Bud Selig if he refuses to cooperate with the treatment board or has not complied with a treatment program.

Soto also tested positive for marijuana during the 2009 World Baseball Classic, which has a different drug program than MLB.

Texas Rangers officials declined to comment on the arrest.

“We are aware of the situation,” team spokesman John Blake said.

Soto has been recovering from knee surgery and remains on the team’s disabled list.

Staff writers Gerry Fraley and Kyle Whitfield contributed to this report.

Former NHL player admits to robbing banks.

from cbssports.com:


Patrick Cote played six seasons in the NHL, but is now in jail. 



Patrick Cote, who played 105 games in the NHL, has been sent to prison for 30 months after he confessed to two bank robberies according to CJAD 800 AM in Montreal. The 39-year-old former enforcer spent time with the Dallas Stars, Nashville Predators and Edmonton Oilers over parts of six NHL seasons.

More from CJAD:

Cote caught the eye of police in May when the car he was driving broke down in Candiac. When the patrol officers realized the car had been reported stolen in Ontario, they took Cote to the station for questioning.

That's when he admitted to investigators that he'd robbed a CIBC branch in Brossard in May and a Laurentian Bank in Saint Constant a few days later.



Cote does have a criminal history.

In 2002, he was arrested in Malone, N.Y., after police found 30 pounds of marijuana in his car. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge, but had twice violated his parole. He turned himself into U.S. authorities in 2011 for one such violation.

CJAD also reported Cote has armed assault on his record.

Cote was drafted 37th overall by the Dallas Stars in 1995. He scored just one goal in his career and also had two assists. All three points came in 1998-99 when he appeared in 70 games with the Predators, his only full season in the league. That year he racked up 242 of his 377 career penalty minutes.

The La Salle, Quebec, native's post-NHL career included seven seasons in what is now known as the LNAH, a circuit known primarily for its fighting.

It's always unfortunate to see a pro athlete fall from grace, but it seems like this has been a path Cote has been on for a while. Still, copping to robbing banks is a way long way away from the NHL.

Former Minnesota Twins star Chuck Knoblauch was arrested Wednesday night on charges that he allegedly assaulted his ex-wife.

The Twins issued a statement Thursday saying that Knoblauch's scheduled induction into the team's Hall of Fame had been canceled. Knoblauch was slated to be honored by the team August 23 at Target Field.

The Twins did not directly address the details of the arrest in their statement but did reference the fact that their decision was made "in light of recent news reports" and after "direct communication" with Knoblauch.

Knoblauch was arrested after allegedly hitting his ex-wife and released after posting $10,000 bond.

Knoblauch divorced Cheri Knoblauch in 2012. He was convicted of hitting a previous wife in 2010 and sentenced to a year of probation.

Knoblauch was the 1991 Rookie of the Year and a four-time All-Star with the Twins.

DETROIT -- Tigers pitcher Evan Reed, who is now in the minor leagues, has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman at a Detroit hotel.

Evan Reed plays for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens but was with the Tigers when the alleged assault occurred.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced Wednesday that Reed is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Reed is accused of an act of penetration through force or coercion at the MotorCity Casino Hotel on March 30. Worthy says the 45-year-old woman felt odd after consuming alcohol earlier at a bar in suburban Detroit.

Defense lawyer Ben Gonek says his client will be exonerated. Reed is not scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

He was 0-1 with a 4.88 ERA for the Tigers before being sent to Toledo in June.

Celtics Center Vitor Faverani arrested for drunk driving.


from espn.go.com:

Boston Celtics center Vitor Faverani was arrested for drunk driving on Sunday in Spain, according to multiple overseas reports. 

Faverani reportedly collided with a bus after running a red light in Valencia, according to La Opinion de Malaga. The paper reported there were no injuries, but noted that Faverani registered a blood-alcohol rate that was three times the legal limit when twice tested by police. 

The Celtics did not immediately issue a comment on the arrest. 

Faverani, a Brazil native whose rookie season with the Celtics was cut short due to a meniscus tear, was rehabbing in Valencia and previously said he hoped to be near full strength upon returning to Boston in early September. 

Faverani signed a three-year contract last summer and is scheduled to earn $2.1 million this season. His salary for the 2015-16 season is nonguaranteed.

from tsn.ca:




Police arrested former No. 1 NBA draft pick Greg Oden on battery charges early Thursday, alleging that he punched his ex-girlfriend in the face during a fight at his mother's suburban Indianapolis home.

The free agent centre, who played last season for the Miami Heat, was taken into custody at the home in Lawrence on two preliminary counts of misdemeanour battery. Oden, 26, was still in Marion County Jail as of early Thursday afternoon, jail spokesman Julio Fernandez said.

According to a Lawrence police report, officers were called to the home at around 3:30 a.m. and found a woman on a sofa with blood on her face. A friend of the woman told officers that Oden had "punched her in the face."

Oden told officers he and the woman recently broke up after dating for two years. He said during an argument in which "things got out of control," he swung his arms trying to break free of two people holding him back and punched his ex-girlfriend, according to the report.

Oden's agent, Michael Conley Sr., directed all questions to Oden's attorney, James Bell, who declined to comment.

The 7-foot Oden was a star at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis and then played a season at Ohio State before the Portland Trail Blazers made him the top pick in the 2007 NBA draft.

Knee injuries have derailed Oden's professional career, and he didn't play from December 2009 until last season, when he averaged 2.9 points in 23 games for the Heat. He is currently without a team.

Washington Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth is facing a misdemeanor reckless driving charge after being pulled over July 6 for going 105 mph in a 55 mph zone.

The incident took place in Fairfax County, Virginia, according to online court documents.

Werth originally had a hearing scheduled for this past Friday, but it has been continued to Nov. 12.

"The Washington Nationals have been in communication with right fielder Jayson Werth regarding this situation for multiple weeks," a team spokesperson said in a statement. "Jayson is cooperating with the authorities. As it is an ongoing legal matter, the team has no further comment."

Werth, 35, is hitting .279 with 12 home runs and 63 RBIs this season. He's been limited of late due to an inflamed right shoulder.

Jonathan Koppenhaver has been arrested in connection with the beating of his adult film star ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack. Fugitive and mixed martial arts fighter Jonathan Koppenhaver, aka "War Machine," was arrested in Southern California for the beating of his adult film star ex-girlfriend, Christy Mack.

Koppenhaver, 32, was taken into custody about 1:45 p.m. after Simi Valley Police Department officers discovered he was staying in a local motel after a week on the lam. They notified the U.S. Marshals Department, which issued an arrest warrant.

The suspect, a former resident of Simi Valley, was arrested without incident, according to Simi Valley police.

Inside the room was a small quantity of cash and some pizza.

He has been transported to the Ventura County Jail, but will eventually go to Las Vegas, the city he fled after the alleged Aug. 8 pummeling of Mack that left her with broken bones, a ruptured liver and diminished eyesight.

Mack previously told The Huffington Post what happened and detailed her injuries:

At about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face.

"I have no recollection of how many times I was hit, I just know my injuries that resulted from my beating," Mack said. "My injuries include 18 broken bones around my eyes, my nose is broken in 2 places, I am missing teeth and several more are broken."

Mack said she can't chew or see out of her left eye. "My speech is slurred from my swelling and lack of teeth. I have a fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from a kick to my side," Mack said.

Her ex "sawed much of my hair off with this dull knife," she said.

Mack continued, "He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly. He took my phone and canceled all of my plans for the following week to make sure no one would worry about my whereabouts. He told me he was going to rape me, but was disappointed in himself when he could not get hard."

When Koppenhaver went into the kitchen and left her in a heap on the floor, she escaped by running to a neighbor's house.

On his Twitter account last week, Koppenhaver appeared to defend himself while still on the run from police.

I can't believe this...I must be cursed.

— War Machine (@WarMachine170) August 8, 2014

The cops will never give me fair play, never believe me. Still deciding what to do but at the end of the day it's all just heart breaking.

— War Machine (@WarMachine170) August 11, 2014

I only wish that man hadn't been there and that Christy & I would behappily engaged.I don't know y I'm so cursed.One day truth will come out

— War Machine (@WarMachine170) August 11, 2014

A fundraising page set up for Mack’s medical expenses had raised more than $65,000 by Friday, KTLA reports.





Here's a link to pics of Mack. The bastard really did a number on her.

49ers’ defensive end Ray McDonald arrested for domestic violence against pregnant fiancée
McDonald's arrest comes just days after the NFL implemented a six-game suspension for a first offense of domestic violence, followed by a lifetime ban against repeat offenders.
 

That didn’t take long — unfortunately.

Just three days after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell created stronger sanctions for players involved in domestic violence, 49ers starting defensive end Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of felony domestic violence charges involving his fiancée.

He is now in position to incur the commissioner’s wrath in addition to whatever comes his way through the legal process.

If the NFL’s investigation of the events verifies the police report, expect Goodell to quickly hit McDonald with a substantial suspension − he is in line for more than the new standard of six games for a first offense because the alleged victim is pregnant, according to media reports from police. And it’s likely to really send out an undeniably strong message to the other 2,015 players under contract, Goodell will do it before the case is adjudicated.

As McDonald sat in Santa Clara County Jail after he was arrested early Sunday morning − he later posted $25,000 bail — he had plenty of time to study the memo Goodell instructed clubs to distribute to players last Thursday outlining the new disciplinary standards he set for any NFL personnel involved in domestic violence.

Goodell beat himself up for giving Ravens running back Ray Rice just a two-game suspension for a domestic-violence incident in February at an Atlantic City hotel. Rice was caught on video dragging his fiancée, now wife, Janay Palmer unconscious out of an elevator. Goodell wanted to suspend Rice six games, but felt constrained by the precedent set by previous cases. He reluctantly settled on two games.

The criticism was immediate and widespread and Goodell knew he had made a mistake.

So, he rewrote the domestic violence portion of the personal conduct policy: Six games for a first offense, banishment for life for a second with the right to appeal for reinstatement after one year.

“Mitigating circumstances will be considered, and more severe discipline will be imposed if there are aggravating circumstances such as the presence or use of a weapon, choking, repeated striking, or when the act is committed against a pregnant woman or in the presence of a child,” Goodell wrote in the memo to the players.

According to the police, McDonald’s fiancée is 10 weeks pregnant and reportedly had bruises on her neck and arms.

The report said police arrived at McDonald’s home in San Jose at 2:48 a.m. PDT Sunday. There was a party for his 30th birthday. McDonald was booked at 5:30 a.m. for “inflicting injury on a spouse or cohabitant.”

The personal conduct policy does not force Goodell to wait until McDonald’s case is resolved through the courts before he punishes him. McDonald is due in court Sept. 15.

This is what Goodell wrote in his long-standing policy regarding his power to hand out discipline: “Unless the available facts clearly indicate egregious circumstances, significant bodily harm or risk to third parties, or an immediate and substantial risk to the integrity and reputation of the NFL, a first offense generally will not result in discipline until there has been a disposition of the proceeding (or until the investigation is complete in the case of noncriminal misconduct).”

In other words, he has a lot of leeway. Don’t expect him to show much leniency with McDonald if the allegations are backed up. McDonald has given Goodell an opportunity to show that he will not make the same mistake he made with Rice.

Until the facts of the incident are revealed, however, all we know is that McDonald has been arrested. But for any player to risk his career, in addition to the unspeakable act of harming a woman, so soon after Goodell announced stronger discipline to what had already been a zero tolerance policy for domestic violence, is just beyond comprehension.

Safety Donte Whitner, who left the 49ers this year to sign with the Browns, told the Sacramento Bee last year that coach Jim Harbaugh “said that we can do anything in the world and we can come and talk to him and he’ll forgive us except put our hands on women. If you put your hand on a woman, then you’re done in his book.”

McDonald, unfortunately, has provided a test case for Harbaugh and more importantly, Goodell.
