Well, at least they weren’t BURNING couches, like they did at Michigan State a few years ago. This time, we have a Cleveland Browns fan, Mike Meredith, whose sofa is motorized. Meredith apparently drives the Go-Kouch (a converted lawn tractor) around a parking lot where Browns fans (both of them) tailgate before games. Mike apparently asked permission to drive the sofa down a city street and was given permission by one cop . . . but not every cop in Cleveland is a Browns fan. So Meredith got a ticket and he must appear in Cleveland Municipal Court on this on charges of driving an unregistered vehicle and having expired plates. (WKYC) To watch Mike Meredith’s Go-Kouch in action, watch the video below.
No big surpises here, just more of the same we’ve been seeing all year. You’d think these guys would get the message by now. Here’s more from CBS3:
A coach at Princeton High School in New Jersey has been arrested after being accused of having a sexual relationship with a female student. James Kearney Jr., of Columbus, has been charged with two counts of second degree sexual assault. Police allege the 37-year-old had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student.
Investigators said someone at the school told the administration about the alleged relationship and that prompted the investigation. Kearney Jr. was also a gym teacher at the Joyce Kilmer Elementary School in Trenton. He has been suspended with pay from the school. Kearney Jr. was drafted by the Green Bay Packers back in 1994. He was also a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers at one point, but he never played in a game.
Our good buddy Josh Bernstein at KNXV-TV in Phoenix continues his investigation in to what has become the biggest steroid scandal NOT involving professional athletes. This whole thing started last spring when Josh started looking into allegations that doctors at a place called Revolution Medical Centers were giving out performance enhancing drugs to almost anyone who walked in the door and wanted to “get bigger.” Since then, these clinics have shut down and the Feds are now involved. The lasted development? The former clinical director at RMC agreed to surrender his medical license. Here’s more from KNXV-TV:
Dr. Jesse Haggard, former clinical director of Revolution Medical Centers in the Valley, agreed to surrender his medical license on Thursday. Under the consent agreement with the Arizona Naturopathic Physicians Board of Medical Examiners, Haggard admitted to altering medical records and failing to maintain adequate patient files. The ABC15 Investigators first reported on Revolution Medical Centers in April.
The Drug Enforcement Administration has launched a criminal investigation into the clinics and its doctors related to allegations of illegally prescribing anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs, and the Arizona Board of Chiropractic Examiners is looking into the clinics’ owner, Dr. Jeremy Bula.
Haggard’s attorney, Timothy Holt, would not comment to ABC15 on the criminal investigation. While the agreement asserts Haggard was “prescribing and dispensing steroids and human growth hormone other than for therapeutic purposes,” Haggard will not face Board penalties on this claim.
According to Dr. Craig Runbeck, executive director of the Naturopathic Board, there was enough evidence to revoke Haggard’s license, but the consent agreement “accomplished the same goal,” he said, “which is getting the man’s license so he cannot practice medicine.”
