    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. Soon after that call, Sager was thrown down a set of stairs and placed in handcuffs while out cold. 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...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – While getting to the gym can be a challenge in itself this winter, members of the LA Fitness in Roseville have had more serious problems to deal with. On Sunday, city police responded to a call involving 10-15 people fighting at the gym’s Cleveland Avenue location. It started all on the basketball court over a call and escalated, moving into the main fitness area. “People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building,” said Police Lt. Lorne Rosand. This recent fight is just part of a bigger problem. Police say the...

    CANTON — Fired police officer Daniel Harless could get his job back if he gets medical clearance to return to work. An arbitrator hearing Harless’ appeal ruled in the former patrolman’s favor. The 15-page ruling was dated Saturday and released by the city Wednesday. Harless’ attorney indicated his client is unlikely to seek his old job, at least for now. 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.

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...

White showed little emotion as the verdicts were read about 4 p.m., but after the jury left the courtroom, he bear-hugged his attorney, Rick Pinckard, then his wife, Jacquellyn.

    Barry Bonds is being shafted by the legal system. His case is, sadly, part of a pattern of judicial abuse, the stretching of the law like rubber to allow prosecutors to go after unpopular figures in business, politics and, now, sports. The indictment recently returned against him could have been rendered years ago. Why now? Because this season Bonds, an ill-tempered, arrogant, disliked athlete, broke the record for lifetime home runs. Had he not set a new record or had he been a friendly figure beloved by the fans, prosecutors would never have touched him...

Barry Bonds tied Babe Ruth for second place on the career list with his 714th home run Saturday, a shot into the first deck of elevated stands in right-center leading off the second inning against the Oakland Athletics. The ball landed about eight rows up in the seats overlooking the high fence just to the left of the out-of-town scoreboard. Though the A's don't provide estimated distances on home runs, the ball appeared to travel about 400 feet -- far from being one of his trademark behemoth drives. The ball was caught on...

The company they patronized, the now-defunct PowerMedica in Deerfield Beach, was part of an online boom in anti-aging and hormone replacement clinics. Such clinics have popped up all over South Florida, operating in a murky area of the law, and they are drawing more scrutiny from regulators.

He doesn’t want the Giants slugger to pass Babe Ruth’s total of 714. “No. Not really,” the Boston Red Sox left-hander said Wednesday, one day after excerpts of a book were released alleging that Bonds used steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. Bonds needs seven homers to pass Ruth for second place and 48 to overtake Hank Aaron for the top spot. Wells praised Bonds’ baseball skills but said he should “be a man and come out and say that he did it” if he used steroids.
