    Movie star and potential 2020 presidential candidate Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has taken exception with how President Trump has dealt with politically outspoken athletes. According to “The Rock,” the players just want “to be heard.” advertisement Johnson told InStyle Magazine, “When the players are kneeling as a last resort, as a desire to be heard, clearly they’re not being heard. It’s an opportunity for our leaders, our president and his staff, to hear them, truly hear them, and not be angry.” Though, Johnson doesn’t merely confine his criticisms to how Trump has handled anthem-protesting NFL players. The actor and former...

    Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, the popular WWE star, was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 death of his girlfriend, according to The Morning Call.

I’ll bust your face wide open!” “Dead...

    A companion of William C. Sager Jr. called 911 early Sunday to report Sager was being harassed inside Molly’s Pub by the management and two off-duty police officers.

Then, still in handcuffs and bleeding from the ears and mouth, he was dragged out on the sidewalk, a short distance from the bar. When a friend tried to intervene, he was placed under arrest. Later, when on-duty police responded, they found an internal surveillance tape from Molly’s in the trash nearby. These...

He has been receiving workers’ compensation and has applied for a disability retirement pension. But Harless now has the right to be back on the job, according to arbitrator Harry Graham.

    A police officer has been fired after allegedly losing his temper at a cook-off and throwing a tear gas grenade at a rival team - many of whom were military amputees. Mike Hamby, 52, could face criminal charges for the drunken attack, which happened at this year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo BBQ Cook-Off in Texas. Several members of the team were left vomiting and with burning eyes after Hamby, an officer with 30 years service, allegedly flung a military-style 'clear-out' grenade into their tent. Hamby, who was off-duty, had been drinking before the incident in February, according to police...

    NEW YORK – Serena Williams faces an anxious wait to see if she is to be banned from future Grand Slam tournaments following her controversial outburst at the U.S. Open. Williams was levied with a $10,000 fine by the U.S. Open for unsportsmanlike conduct on Sunday for her foul-mouthed tirade at a line judge the night before, as she slumped to a semifinals defeat to Kim Clijsters. The fine was the maximum possible at this stage. An additional $500 fine for racket abuse was also imposed by tournament referee Brian Earley, but those on-site punishments could be just the tip...
