Another example why you can never put someone on a pedastal, no matter what they accomplish.  You never know what's going on in their heads.

http://gma.yahoo.com/blade-runner-charged-murder-girlfriend-110854125--abc-news-topstories.html

Oscar Pistorius, the Olympic and Paralympic athlete known as the "blade runner," was taken into custody in South Africa today and charged with the murder of his girlfriend, who was fatally shot at his home.

Police in the South African capital of Pretoria received a call around 3 a.m. today that there had been a shooting at the home of 26-year-old Pistorius, Lt. Col. Katlego Mogale told the Associated Press. When police arrived at the scene they found paramedics trying to revive 29-year-old Reeva Steenkamp, the AP reported.

At a news conference early today, police said a 26-year-old man, whom they have not named, was arrested and has requested to be taken to court immediately. Police in South Africa do not name suspects in crimes until they have appeared in court.

Mogale said the woman died at the house, and a 9-mm pistol was recovered at the scene and a murder case opened against Pistorius, the AP reported.

Police said this morning that there were no other suspects in the shooting, and that Pistorius is at the police station.

The precise circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear. Local reports say he might have mistaken her for a burglar, according to the AP.

Police said they have heard reports of an argument or shouting at the apartment complex, and that the only two people on the premises were Steenkamp and Pistorius.

Police confirmed there have previously been incidents of a domestic nature at the home of Pistorius.

Pistorius, a sprinter, had double below-the-knee amputations and a part of his legs has been replaced with carbon fiber blades. In 2012, he became the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics, competing in the men's 400-meter race.

He also competed in the Paralympics, where he won gold medals in the men's 400-meter race, in what became a Paralympics record. He also took the silver in the 200-meter race.

Steenkamp, according to her Twitter bio, is a law graduate and model. She tweeted Wednesday, "What do you have up your sleeve for your love tomorrow??? #getexcited #ValentinesDay."

Steenkamp recently appeared on the cover of FHM magazine, in commercials and was due to appear on a reality-TV show, "Tropika Island of Treasure."

Will he have a leg to stand on in court?

If he does time, he'll get a third off.

And will also be released early.

There you go mocking someone's hero while people are trying to peg him with a murder rap.

It was a valid question regarding his case...

Anybody know if there was a foot chase?

My wife said she doubts he'll walk free.

I think Bruno did it. Therefore, Trent Golden can troll him now. The amputee is being set up.

The first time I read about it, she was shot once. Then a few hours later, she was shot 4 times.

No way was this a case of accidental shooting because he thought she was an intruder, especially when it came out that police have been to that house several times for domestic issues(him hitting her)

LOL I knew that would be a high point of your life, winning a tournament on a wrestling board

You're very proud, aren't you?  What a feat- definitely something to brag about while you frown upon trolling old wrestlers

That's hilarious

No, not really a high point for me, but certainly a low point for you.
