Maybe it was the heat. Maybe it was the loud music one of the parents was playing as part of a post-game ritual (?) or maybe there was some booze involved. Who knows for sure? All we do know is a couple of dads went at it Friday night following a game between the Northern Little League and Harris County All-Stars Columbus, Ga. Police eventually arrested Iram King, 36, asked Charles Davidson, 38, who were each eventually charged with one count of disorderly conduct and are likely banned from any future Little League games.
By now, most of you have heard that the Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson was taken into custody by Houston police over the weekend for resisting arrest. This incident happened at a nightclub where the star running back allegedly asked for a drink of water (what?) after police showed up at the bar to close it down for the night. Cops say Peterson exchanged words with an off-duty officer (who probably thinks water isn’t a manly enough drink and was probably dehydrated himself at the time) working security and next thing you know AD is “resisting arrest.”
Something smells fishing about this all the way around, so we’ll wait until more information comes out to comment, but below is the only known video of Peterson’s arrest. Thanks to TMZ for the video!
Minor League Baseball Team: “Hey, looks like rain. We should put the tarp out.”
Thunderstorm: “Oh no you don’t!”
What? A French athlete acting poorly? How often does that happen? Oh yeah . . .
Details from ABC News:
A French Olympic runner has developed a reputation for the way he marks the end of his races. Instead of throwing up his hands in a victory sign or congratulating his fellow competitors on a race well run, Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad has taken to attacking mascots.
After winning the 3,000-meter steeplechase race at the European Athletic Championships in Helsinki Friday, the Algerian-born runner, 27, went straight from the finish line to a teenage girl, 14, dressed as the championship’s mascot, “Appy,” knocked a gift bag out of her hands and shoved her.
No word on what the final score of this match was, but apparently the combat became so heated in the back seat of Ortiz’s car that both combatants lost clothing. Sounds brutal!
Here’s more from ABC 15:
According to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were called Saturday to respond to a suspicious van parked in the 6600 block of South Gila Avenue. Police said when they looked inside the vehicle, they found 53-year-old Richard Ortiz and a 15-year-old girl, both only partially dressed. During their investigation, police said they confirmed that Ortiz was involved in sexual activity with the girl. Both the victim and Ortiz were taken in for further questioning.
Detectives learned that Ortiz had been a wrestling coach for Tucson High School until January of this year and later took on a role of liaison, in which he was still involved in working with students. The victim was a member of the wrestling team and continued to receive private wrestling lessons by Ortiz.
Police said Saturday night, the victim went with Ortiz to help set up a special event. Ortiz was supposed to take her back home, but instead took the victim to the south end of Gila Avenue, where he reportedly engaged in sexual activity with her.
