MEREDITH, N.H. (CBS) – Patriots safety Patrick Chung has been indicted in New Hampshire on a cocaine possession charge.



Documents released Thursday show Chung was indicted on Aug. 8 for the incident, which police say took place on June 25 at Chung’s million-dollar lakeside house in Meredith.

Meredith Police said they were called to Chung’s home on a “call for service.” According to neighbors, officers came to check on a possible break-in because an alarm went off.

“During the course of the call, the police obtained evidence which has led to the current charges being filed,” Meredith Police said in a statement.

Chung was not arrested at the time. He is due in court on Aug. 28. The charge is a Class B felony, which means, if convicted, Chung could face up to seven years in prison.

His neighbors in Meredith were shocked by the indictment.

“I expected more of him,” said Jack Carey. “I thought he was above that.”

However, Karin Itrato said she always found him to be the “nicest guy in the world.”

“He has had many people here renovating the house over the past year. And I am sort of surprised that nobody thought of that to begin with,” Itrato said.

The Patriots issued a brief statement after news of Chung’s indictment broke.

“We are aware of the reports regarding Patrick Chung. We will not be commenting while his judicial proceedings take place,” the team said.

hung has played nine seasons with the Patriots. He had 83 tackles last season.

He has won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. That includes Super Bowl LIII against the Rams, when he left with an arm injury.

Chung did not play and was not seen at Thursday night’s pre-season game against Carolina in Foxboro.

Ex-MLB star Josh Hamilton allegedly beat his own young daughter with a closed fist while telling her he never wants to see her again ... this according to the arrest warrant obtained by TMZ Sports.
Hamilton was arrested for third-degree felony child abuse on Wednesday, stemming from an alleged Sept. 30 incident involving 1 of his 3 daughters.
According to the docs, his oldest daughter told officials Hamilton began arguing with her after she made a comment that pissed off the former baseball player.
The girl alleges Hamilton then hurled a full water bottle in an overhand motion that hit her in the chest.
She claims Hamilton began swearing and yelling at her ... and says he then grabbed a chair that she had propped her feet on, pulled it out from under her and threw it at her, hitting her in the leg and breaking the chair.
She says Hamilton grabbed her by the shoulders and yanked her to the ground ... where she claims she hurt her hip.
She then claims Hamilton picked her up, threw her over his shoulder and carried her to her room ... all while she says she screamed out, "I'm sorry."
According to the docs, she says Hamilton stopped at her bedroom doorway and threw her onto the bed ... and once there, she says he put his hand to the side of her face and pushed down.
She says while Hamilton had her pinned with one hand ... he used the other to hit her with "an open hand and a closed fist" on her legs.
Per the docs, she then says he picked up her by her sweatshirt, causing it to rip ... pushed her back on the bed, and slapped her with his open hand on her back and her legs -- leaving multiple scratches on her back that she says were from his fingernails.
She claims after Hamilton finished hitting her, he told her, "I hope you go in front of the f*cking judge and tell him what a terrible dad I am so I don't have to see you anymore and you don't ever have to come to my house again."

VISTA, Calif. – Kellen Winslow II did not want to do this.

After fighting charges of rape and other sex crimes since last year, the former NFL star did not want to admit he did anything so heinous and cruel. But he felt he had no better choice this week in a courtroom in north San Diego County.

It was all because his risk calculation had drastically changed in the span of a week. He was left with two options: He could take an offer to plead guilty in a plea deal that would send him to prison for 12 to 18 years. Or he could go to trial again and fight the charges but risk being found guilty and sent to prison for life.

“You do not have to plead guilty if you don’t want to today, because you do have constitutional rights including a right to have a speedy and public trial by jury,” San Diego Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman told him. “Do you give up that right so that you can enter a plea of guilty?”

“I guess I have to, Your Honor,” Winslow replied, after a long pause.

This was about 1:30 p.m. on Monday. A new jury of six men and six women was waiting in the hallway on the third floor. Winslow’s second trial on rape charges was set to begin, with a key witness on standby to testify against him that same afternoon – the homeless woman he previously was convicted of raping in May 2018.

The former University of Miami tight end already was facing nine years behind bars because of that conviction and two others at his first trial in June. Now he had to decide if he was going to take the deal by admitting to raping an unconscious woman in 2003 and sexually battering a 54-year-old hitchhiker in March 2018.

“No, you don’t have to,” the judge told him. “It’s your decision. As I’ve said, we have the jurors out there waiting. Both sides are prepared to give their opening statements, and if you want to insist on your right to a jury trial, we are ready to give you a jury trial right now.”

Winslow, 36, paused again for several minutes and asked for more time. He eventually replied “yes,” when asked if he was waiving his right to a trial to plead guilty instead.

But then came another extended silence from Winslow. To complete his guilty plea, he was required to admit to the details of the alleged crimes. He didn’t want to do that, by all indications. He showed no apparent remorse for the alleged victims.

This decision instead was a personal assessment about his future chances for freedom, according to statements by his attorneys, as often happens in criminal plea agreements. In this case, it was just on naked display in open court as he was about to face a retrial on six felony counts that had hopelessly deadlocked a different jury at his first trial.

Was he really going to admit to committing these acts against these women after denying it all along and using his attorneys to paint them as mistaken, confused or out to get some of the millions he earned in the NFL from 2004 to 2013?

The moment of truth came when the judge asked him about the unconscious woman from 2003, known as Jane Doe No. 4. Bowman read a written admission statement aloud in court and asked Winslow to confirm it:

“I unlawfully had sexual intercourse with Jane Doe No. 4 when we were both teens. She was 17. I was 19, and she was not my spouse. She was at the time unconscious, and I do not dispute her memory for purposes of this plea.”

The judge asked, “Did you in fact do that? Those facts that make you guilty of this crime?”

Winslow paused for several seconds.

“Sorry, I’m just not thinking very clearly,” Winslow said. The judge reminded him that he had just initialed a change-of-plea form that said he did that, but if Winslow also didn’t want to admit to it orally in court, he could call in the jury and start the trial.

After another pause of about 30 seconds, Winslow finally admitted to it out loud. “Uh, yes,” he said.

Winslow also pleaded guilty to felony sexual battery against the hitchhiker he picked up in his vehicle in March 2018, a woman known as Jane Doe No. 1. He admitted to touching an intimate part of her “while she was restrained, in fear against her will, for the purpose of sexual arousal.”

In exchange for those two guilty pleas, the retrial was canceled, and his other pending felony rape and sodomy charges were dismissed. Those pending charges could have put him away for life, if the jury had found him guilty.

The plea deal instead was structured to lessen risk for both sides. For Winslow, he would get a maximum of 18 years in prison at his sentencing in February instead of potentially never going home again to his son, now age 8, and daughter, now age 6. For the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, the deal would imprison a man it considered a danger to the community for up to 18 years instead of the nine years he faced for his convictions at his previous trial, prosecutor Dan Owens said.

In that trial, the jury convicted him of indecently exposing himself to a neighbor in May 2018 and engaging in a lewd act against another woman at a local gym in February, in addition to the rape of the homeless woman, all ages 57 or older. According to his plea deal, he cannot appeal those convictions.

“We did a mathematical computation,” said Gretchen von Helms, one of Winslow’s attorneys. Considering Winslow already was facing nine years in custody, only adding three to nine more years “is a small fraction to step up in exchange for dismissing counts in which he could receive life,” she said.

One week earlier, Winslow’s team had other paths to take. They had asked Bowman to reverse Winslow’s convictions from the previous trial and give Winslow a new trial on the grounds that the first trial violated precedent and denied him due process. When Bowman rejected that request Oct. 29, Winslow’s attorneys filed a 281-page document with a state appeals court the next day asking it to delay the retrial in Bowman’s court. A three-judge panel shot down that request a day later.

Winslow’s attorneys also had made a last-minute request to get his retrial moved to downtown San Diego on the grounds that the jury pool in Vista was almost all white. They argued Winslow, an African-American, would get a fairer trial there, likely in 2020. Bowman rejected this too, partly because the request came too late according to state rules.

The judge’s rejections narrowed Winslow’s choices, though the same judge also made rulings to keep other potentially damaging information against Winslow out of the trials, including former charges of him illegally entering the homes of two women ages 86 and 71.

Bowman now will decide in February whether Winslow goes to prison for 12 years or more.

“I pray to God that you give me 12, and I can go home to my family as soon as possible, Your Honor,” Winslow told him.

“You could get 18 years,” Bowman replied. “You could get 12 years, and you could get anything in between.”

Bill Cosby is proud of you, Kellen. I honesty knew something was wrong with this guy when he was playing college ball at Miami. No bullshit, he's always come across as a sociopath.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones has been arrested on suspicion of DWI and other offences after officers heard gunshots and found him in a parked car with a handgun and a half-empty bottle of liquor early Thursday, Albuquerque police said.

The 32-year-old Jones was arrested on suspicion of aggravated DWI, negligent use of firearms, possession of an open container of alcohol and no proof of insurance for a vehicle, police said.

Police said Jones was found in the driver’s seat of a parked vehicle with the engine running about 1 a.m. Authorities said Jones showed signs of intoxication and a handgun and a half-empty bottle of liquor were in the vehicle.

Bernalillo County jail records indicate Jones was released after being booked.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Jones who could comment on his behalf.

Jones (26-1) retained his title in February by beating Dominick Reyes by unanimous decision.

Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Ed Oliver was arrested Saturday night in his hometown of Houston on charges of driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon.

Oliver is being held at Montgomery County Jail after being pulled over on State Highway 242. Both charges are misdemeanors, according to the jail's website.

The 22-year-old Oliver had an open beer between his legs and was determined to be impaired after a field sobriety test, according to MontgomeryCountyPoliceReporter.com.

The officer who administered the test noted that Oliver may have been impaired by something other than alcohol, and police discovered a pistol in Oliver's vehicle, according to the report. No drugs were found.

Police were alerted to Oliver's driving by a 911 call from another motorist, who reported a Ford Super Duty pickup hauling a trailer with a dune buggy on it through a 45 mph construction zone on State Highway 242, according to MontgomeryCountyPoliceReporter.com. The 911 caller noted that Oliver was "failing to maintain a lane and driving dangerously," according to the report.

Oliver underwent a mandatory blood draw before being transported to the jail.

"We are aware of the situation and we are gathering more information," said the Bills via statement. "We will have no further comment at this point."

The 6-foot-1, 287-pound Oliver was the ninth overall selection in last year's draft and had an immediate impact for the Bills, recording 43 tackles and five sacks last season as a rookie.

The attorneys for Seahawks defensive back Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker have denied allegations their clients took part in an armed robbery Wednesday night in South Florida — and claim to have witness statements to back them up.

Dunbar's attorney, Michael Grieco, told The Miami Herald that five witnesses have signed sworn affidavits claiming his client was not involved. Grieco said the witnesses are the same ones police in Miramar, Fla., interviewed before issuing arrest warrants for the two players on Thursday.

"All of the affidavits indicate my client is innocent," Grieco said.


Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues told the Herald the department would "welcome" the witnesses to come to police headquarters if they have changed their stories. Rues said the five people, whom she described as four victims and a witness, identified Dunbar under oath.

Baker's attorney, Bradford Cohen, posted on Instagram that his firm has "had affidavits from several witnesses that also dispute the allegations and exculpate our client."

Dunbar and Baker remained at large more than 24 hours after the warrants were issued. They're each wanted on four counts of armed robbery with a firearm. Baker has also been charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Miramar police claimed in their request for warrants that Baker, Dunbar and a third man stole cash and jewelry from people at a cookout the three men were attending. The robbery occurred after a dispute involving Baker broke out, police said. The total value of items stolen is estimated at $73,500, per the warrant application.

Baker allegedly directed Dunbar to assist in the robbery and ordered the third man, who was wearing a red mask, to shoot a person who was entering the gathering. No shots were fired, police said.

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Ryan Leaf was arrested on Friday afternoon for misdemeanor domestic battery, according to TMZ Sports.
Leaf, per the report, was arrested in Palm Desert, California, and booked on a single domestic battery charge. It’s unclear what incident took place that resulted in his arrest.
The 44-year-old is one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history. The former Washington State standout went No. 2 overall to the San Diego Chargers in the 1998 draft behind Peyton Manning. However he lasted just three seasons in the league — two with San Diego and one with Dallas. In total, he threw just 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while compiling a career 4-17 record.

KEY WEST, Fla. -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was in jail Saturday, charged with trespassing property.

Toles, 28, was detained this week at the airport in Key West, Florida, by a Monroe County sheriff deputy.

The Miami Herald reported Toles was found sleeping behind a Federal Express building at the airport and refused to move.

Jail records show Toles appeared to be homeless when arrested Monday on the misdemeanor charge. His bond was set at $500 but he remained jailed and is scheduled for arraignment Thursday.

"We are unable to comment," team spokesman Joe Jareck said Saturday.

Toles never reported to spring training in 2019 because of a personal matter. He did not play that year.

Toles rose from the low minors to the majors in just months and became a postseason star for the Dodgers in 2016.

He was the starting left fielder in the second half of 2016 and early in 2017. In May of that year, he tore a knee ligament and spent most of 2018 at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Toles had struggled with anxiety issues even before the Dodgers signed him to a minor league contract. He was the Tampa Bay Rays' minor league player of the year in 2013 but was released in 2015. He was working the early-morning shift in the frozen food section of a grocery store before the Dodgers recruited him.

Pretty obvious he's dealing with mental health problems.

The New York Giants are releasing Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas just days before the start of training camp after his arrest earlier this summer, according to multiple sources.

Rosas, 25, was charged with three misdemeanors stemming from a June 15 hit-and-run crash in Butte County, California. He faces charges of reckless driving on a highway, hit-and-run property damage and driving while suspended/revoked for DUI of alcohol/drugs.

Rosas still could face discipline from the NFL. The league has indicated in recent weeks that the matter remains under review.

While Rosas is set to be released, the expectation for second-year cornerback DeAndre Baker is that he lands on an exempt list. Baker faces four counts of armed robbery and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. The alleged robbery occurred during an illegal dice gambling game at a Miramar, Florida, house with 15 to 20 occupants in attendance, a source told ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. A commotion ensued after parties were accused of cheating with "loaded dice," the source said.

Rosas' trouble with the law also comes on the heels of a rough 2019 season. Rosas made just 12 of 17 field goal attempts (70.6%). He was re-signed as a restricted free agent for $3.3 million this offseason after the Giants used a second-round tender on him.

It has been a precipitous fall for Rosas, who made the Pro Bowl following the 2018 season. He made 32 of 33 field goals (96.9%) that year in a breakout season. The former undrafted big-legged kicker out of Southern Oregon had worked his way onto the Giants' active roster in 2017.

Without Rosas, the Giants are signing former Jets kicker Chandler Catanzaro to a one-year deal, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Catanzaro retired last August and was released from the Jets' reserve/left squad list just last week.

Giants veterans are scheduled to report to training camp Tuesday.

Rosas was driving a black Chevrolet SUV on the morning of June 15 when a T-bone collision occurred. Witnesses saw Rosas driving erratically over the double yellow lines and at a speed estimated to be 100 mph when he ran a red light and hit a Ford pickup truck, according to the police report.

Rosas allegedly attempted to drive from the scene of the crash before his vehicle became disabled. He exited and fled the scene on foot without shoes.

Officers went to Rosas' home after the scene was cleared. The 2018 Pro Bowl kicker was not there, but was later stopped walking on the side of a road with his hands, legs and bare feet covered in blood. Rosas eventually was treated for minor injuries at Enloe Medical Center and later booked into Butte County Jail.

The police report originally stated that alcohol impairment was believed to be a factor. But there was no mention of any Breathalyzer or blood test.

None of the charges that were filed earlier this month reflected alcohol being involved.
