Tough guy football player punches woman

Joe Mixon mixing it up with the girls. He'd probably run from a confrontation with a dude. Innocent until proven guilty. He's claiming self defense.

Oklahoma freshman running back Joe Mixon has been suspended from all activities with the football team for the entire season, the university announced Monday.

Mixon was charged Friday with misdemeanor assault stemming from an alleged incident in which he was accused of punching a woman in the face.

Amelia Rae Molitor, a 20-year-old Oklahoma student from Euless, Texas, told police that Mixon punched her, breaking four bones in her face.

USC's Josh Shaw admits to lying

USC senior cornerback Josh Shaw has admitted to lying about how he suffered his ankle injuries last weekend and has been suspended indefinitely.

witnesses told police an individual matching Shaw's description was seen jumping off of a three-story balcony at the Orsini Apartments near USC's campus where Shaw's girlfriend lives.

Donald Etra, Shaw's lawyer, said on Wednesday night Shaw's injury was suffered while falling off the balcony at the Orsini Apartments on Saturday night.

"My understanding is that there is nothing criminal about this whatsoever," Etra told ESPNLA. "There is no criminal activity whatsoever."

Etra said he was hired by Shaw on Wednesday to give him advice. When asked why Shaw would need a criminal defense lawyer, Etra said, "Intelligent people hire lawyers."
Guilty people also hire lawyers.

It is called money. Celebrities, such as Hollywood, sports, politicians, etc. know their money will get them off. The worst example I saw was that underage kid in Texas that killed people in a DUI because his parents were uber rich, and he was sent to some uber rich rehab, instead of jail. I am waiting to see him in the news again. A knuckle sammich is too good for these people. I hope we are seeing a change, now, in how they are handled by the judiciary system. Money is not privilege. Period.

Why would you throw up a comment on something so readily provable as not only false but, not even close?

More or less random. I post when I see the story. But Mike Phelps, Ryan Leaf and War Machine also made the cut. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Rob Bironas DUI death at 36

Drinking, driving and road rage is never a good combination.

The toxicology report shows former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas had a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit for driving in Tennessee when he died in a one-vehicle crash.

Testing released Friday by the Davidson County Medical Examiner's Office shows Bironas had a blood alcohol level of 0.218 percent. Tennessee's limit for driving under the influence is 0.08 percent. The toxicology report also says a low level of diazepam, or Valium, was detected, but at a level so low it would have a "negligible effect," according to a news release.

The autopsy shows Bironas, 36, died of blunt force trauma after his SUV went off the road and crashed into a line of trees. According to people involved in the incidents, Bironas allegedly was involved in two separate cases of road rage the night of the crash.

$100 bond, must be a dolphin discount.

nfl_e_shelby01jr_65x90.jpg

Miami Dolphins defensive end Derrick Shelby was suspended indefinitely Monday following his arrest this weekend at a Fort Lauderdale nightclub.

The Dolphins cited Shelby for "conduct detrimental to the team." Shelby was touching women without their permission early Saturday. Shelby appeared intoxicated, was ordered to leave several times by an officer and refused -- asking, "What are you going to do?" -- the report said.

When officers tried to place Shelby in custody, he pushed away and took an aggressive fighting stance. He was placed on the ground and continued to resist, and officers used a Taser three times before he was subdued.

He was released from jail on a $100 bond, and [SHOCKER ALERT] his attorney said Shelby is innocent.

Univ of Fla teammates duking it out

Insert foot fetish joke here.

Sophomore quarterback Skyler Mornhinweg and true freshman defensive lineman Gerald Willis III fought outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium before campus police responded at approximately 7:06 p.m. ET.

Mornhinweg told police the fight was over his cleats, which he said were located by the team's staff in Willis' locker. The QB sustained "small lacerations on his lower lip," according to the police report, and was taken to Shands emergency room for treatment.

Another college football player accused of rape

Seems to be a lot of them getting accused of rape this year. No means No.

Kentucky freshman defensive end Lloyd Tubman has been suspended indefinitely from the Wildcats' football team after being charged with rape.

Goodbye scholarship
