"{Lance Broadway}'s taken his shirt off, he takes a running start from Ivan's left-hand side, punching Ivan in the left side of the face, knocking him out. It broke his orbital socket, broke his cheekbone...shattered his nose, detached his retina...."

Sorrels said that McGuire kicked Pinney in the face after he had dropped to his knees. Afterwards, according to Sorrels, a brawl broke out and Broadway punched several women, knocking one out.

Have we forgotten the Laird brothers arrest? Now with Grandpa:


Gerald Laird insisted afterward that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding, but now the Arizona Republic has some further details. Chief among them is that the entire incident started when the Laird brothers' 70-year-old grandfather allegedly touched the wife of Celtics player Eddie House "inappropriately" while they were all in the arena's "lounge" area.

Damon and his wife were pulled over at around 1:23 a.m. on Feb. 19 in Windermere, Fla. after cops say he was swerving on the road and driving erratically.

Once a cop stopped Damon ... body cam footage captured the 47-year-old ex-Yankee and Red Sox outfielder admitting to drinking before getting behind the wheel.

Then, an intense standoff between the officer, the ex-MLB star and the baseball player's wife ensued.

In the video, you can see the officer ordered Damon and his wife, Michelle Mangan-Damon, to stay in the car, but neither complied ... and a pushing and shoving squabble broke out.

At one point, the officer grabbed Mangan-Damon's wrist ... before Johnny got involved to separate the two.

The bumping and pushing got so heated, the officer's body camera was actually knocked to the ground.

Fortunately for all parties, backup arrived, and officers were able to settle down the scene.

Damon and his wife repeatedly talked about their support for cops, mentioning over and over, "Blue lives matter."

And, at one point, Damon brought up his affinity for Trump to a cop, saying "Hey, bro, I'm a good f***ing guy. I know people are trying to target me because I'm a Trump supporter."

Damon was then asked to complete some field sobriety tests ... but you can see on the video, it doesn’t look like he exactly passed any of them with flying colors.

Damon was ultimately arrested and booked on multiple charges, including driving under the influence and resisting arrest without violence.

A police report later showed cops said Damon's blood-alcohol level was .30, nearly FOUR TIMES the legal limit.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 03:24 (one year ago) link

“Damon was then said to have hurled the body cam away, but it only travelled 5 feet and continued recording the scene.”

Bauer’s career is in jeopardy, and his stay with the Dodgers could be over, the sexual-assault allegations having turned a pitcher in his prime into a pariah in his own clubhouse, where no teammate has spoken publicly about him or come to his defense. Two people with knowledge of Dodgers clubhouse dynamics, who are unauthorized to speak publicly about the situation, said that a majority of players do not want Bauer back under any circumstances.


Andy K, Monday, 26 July 2021 14:22 (one year ago) link

poor guy will just hate to retire early in the most comfortable place that anyone could possibly imagine for the rest of his life, always burdened with the knowledge that he could have spent a few more years of his mid-30s in front of tens of thousands of people cheering for him because he threw the ball good, but he didn't get that chance

i'm honestly very surprised. charges against him were dropped, no?

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 29 April 2022 20:06 (seven months ago) link

what is the difference between Bauer and what Ozuna did which only got him 20 games? I mean fuck this guy and I hope he never pitches again but I'm not used to y'know, actual punishments like this

frogbs, Friday, 29 April 2022 20:11 (seven months ago) link

Osuna's may have been worse? He assaulted his gf but she declined to press charges. Bauer fought his criminal charges in court and won.

Their punishments from MLB are in no way consistent but whatever, Bauer's career is over. I'm sure he saved a nice retirement nest egg from "earning" his $40M salary last year.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Friday, 29 April 2022 20:22 (seven months ago) link

Think the difference may be that Ozuna cooperated? Even so that is a massive discrepancy

, Friday, 29 April 2022 20:29 (seven months ago) link

i'm not as familiar with what happened with Ozuna – but to me the big difference might simply be that Bauer is a lot more well known

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 29 April 2022 21:08 (seven months ago) link

Oh wait I was talking about Roberto Osuna, you guys meant Marcell Ozuna. The point is the same though.

NoTimeBeforeTime, Friday, 29 April 2022 21:15 (seven months ago) link

reasons i suspect:

- bauer is famous, and famously a loud asshole, and one of the best-payed players in the sport
- the bauer stuff is sexual
- ozuna's wife has also been arrested for domestic violence
- bauer's victim(s) are (presumably) white american women; ozuna's wife is not

for better or worse, bauer playing is just much more likely to raise a public outcry

As MLB suspends Trevor Bauer, a new accuser speaks out

The first time Trevor Bauer choked her unconscious without her consent — in 2013, a woman in Columbus, Ohio, said — all she remembered afterward was waking up on his bathroom floor.

Months later, she said, she was having sex with Bauer, then a minor league pitcher for Cleveland’s Major League Baseball franchise, when she again passed out with his hands around her neck. She said she awoke to a frantic Bauer explaining that she had been convulsing on their hotel room bed.

As their years-long sexual relationship continued, the woman said, they agreed he would stop choking her before she passed out. But he frequently ignored her warnings, she said. He also slapped her without her consent and anally penetrated her while she was unconscious, she said.

In interviews with The Washington Post, the Columbus woman said she decided to share her story after Bauer denied similar allegations made by two other women and accused them of lying for potential financial gain. The Columbus woman asked not to be named, and The Post typically does not name alleged victims of domestic violence unless they ask to be identified.

The Columbus woman shared photos and screenshots of text messages documenting that she had a relationship with Bauer. One screenshot shows a text message bearing Bauer’s name in which he allegedly wrote, “I want to f--- you while you’re completely unconscious.”

MLB suspended Bauer for two years on Friday, the longest suspension in the history of the league’s domestic abuse and sexual assault policy. Bauer immediately proclaimed his innocence and vowed to appeal. MLB cited an “extensive investigation” but did not disclose its findings because of the policy’s terms of confidentiality, and said “it will not issue any further statements.”

The Columbus woman and her lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said she shared her allegations with MLB. She said she is willing to testify in the arbitration hearing that would result from Bauer appealing. MLB declined to comment for this story.

Bauer declined through his attorney and agent, Jon Fetterolf, to be interviewed. A statement issued by Bauer’s representatives did not deny that the Columbus woman had a relationship with Bauer but said the pitcher “unequivocally denies” her “false and defamatory” allegations.

"I hope people realize what a piece of s--- [Skaggs] was... Well he's dead, so f--- him," Kay was heard saying on a recording of a phone call he made while in jail.

Kay said of the Skaggs family during a recorded call, "All they see are dollar signs. They may get more money with him dead than he was playing because he sucked."
