Delmon Young was arrested and charged with battery after he choked and threatened to kill a valet attendant on Sunday night in Miami.

According to a police report, Young grabbed the attendant’s neck and began to choke him after the attendant did not allow him into an elevator to a club at the Brickell hotel. The report also stated that Young yelled racial slurs at the attendant.


At least he didn't yell anything anti-Semitic.

I didn't know where else to put this but here.

Some of you may recall the Morris / Schembechler incident. I had forgotten about it until I read the obituary and then recalled being impressed at the time by the intern taking on two local heroes and being impressed by the Freep standing up for her. Unfortunately, for the last several years she has been fighting her own inner demons.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national ... story.html

In a random bit of life, for the last few years, Jennifer's daughter Ryan has been living with her bachelor uncle, one of the brothers mentioned in the piece. Said uncle is a work colleague / occasional drinking partner. The uncle has done a phenomenal job of raising a teenage girl. For example, he taught her acoustic guitar and then browbeat a group of us in coming out to cheer her on at her first open mic night at age 15 to help her build confidence in her skills. We did it happily. He has done the kind of things that make you ask yourself whether you would have the fortitude, skills and compassion to step up as ably. Solid, solid guy.

I had no idea who her mother was until the uncle shared the obituary. Dude is gutted as one would expect.

Can't say no one didn't see this coming......

Ex-NFL QB arrested, found naked with meth, weed

Former Raiders and USC quarterback Todd Marinovich was arrested and cited for multiple offenses after being found naked and in possession of drugs on Friday night.

Marinovich was arrested in Irvine, Calif. after cops received reports about a naked man on a walking trail. Police found Marinovich naked in a stranger’s backyard. TMZ Sports says Marinovich was found with a brown bag nearby that had meth and marijuana, as well as the ex-QB’s ID.

Marinovich was arrested and cited for possession of a controlled substance, trespassing, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Marinovich lives in Irvine and has notoriously struggled with drugs since his high school days. A former star QB at Mater Dei in Orange County, Marinovich went on to start as a freshman at USC. He was selected in the first round by the Los Angeles Raiders but flamed out quickly due to multiple drug problems.

The lefty QB was arrested for cocaine possession in 1990 during his football days; pleaded guilty to growing marijuana at his home in 1997; was arrested on suspicion of heroin possession in 2000; was arrested in 2005 on drug possession charges; and he was arrested in possession of meth in 2007.

This story shares a glimpse of the difficult training standards his father forced upon him at a young age.

Because he'd hate for his weed and meth to be confused with another haggard, nude derelict's brown bag of weed and meth.
