Police to examine gameday arrest

first_imgSt. Joseph County Police will conduct an internal investigation into the circumstances surrounding the arrest of a Notre Dame student at an on-campus tailgate Saturday, according to a St. Joseph County Police press release issued Monday. St. Joseph County Police Sgt. Randy Kaps, a 19-year veteran of the department, arrested a 21-year-old male student for public intoxication at approximately 2 p.m. Saturday, the release stated. The release referenced a third-party video of the arrest, which a Notre Dame student posted on YouTube Saturday night. The video received more than 10,000 views before it was made private Monday afternoon. “Our department was made aware of the YouTube video early [Monday] morning depicting the arrest,” the press release stated. “Our administration has viewed the video. At this time, we are gathering further information relating to the circumstances leading to the arrest of the suspect in the video.” The release also stated the investigation would look at other evidence and accounts of the arrest. “The information to be considered includes police reports from other police officers at the scene, as well as other video obtained of the incident which may have been captured by security cameras on campus,” the release said. After the student’s arrest, police transported the student to the holding facility at Notre Dame Stadium before booking him into St. Joseph County Jail. He was released from jail on $150 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 2. In a statement Monday, University spokesman Dennis Brown praised past cooperation between Notre Dame Security Police and St. Joseph County Police on football weekends. “The University, local law enforcement agencies and our fans have worked in a spirit of cooperation the past two years to create an environment on football weekends, that, by all accounts has been overwhelmingly positive,” Brown said. Brown said the University is aware of St. Joseph County Police’s investigation of the arrest Saturday. “We know that the incident that occurred Saturday is under review by the St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Department in order to fully understand all of the circumstances surrounding the confrontation,” Brown said. “University leaders will closely monitor the conclusions of that review, but believe that the positive momentum of the last two seasons will not be derailed by a single incident.” Notre Dame Security Police declined to comment Monday about this and other gameday arrests.last_img read more

House panel advances fetal homicide, personhood bill

first_imgDES MOINES — Criminal penalties for intentionally or accidentally causing the death of a fetus without the consent of the mother would be increased under a bill advancing in the Iowa House. Iowa Catholic Conference lobbyist Tom Chapman says Iowa should treat the killing of a fetus without the consent of the woman as a form of homicide, as several other states do.“It protects unborn human life in the criminal code in contexts other than abortion or medical procedures,” Chapman says, “so it deems an unborn baby to actually be a person when offenders attack or otherwise harm a pregnant woman.”The bill would also declared that life starts at conception, something critics like Jamie Burch Elliott of Planned Parenthood say would insert “personhood” language into the state’s criminal code. Planned Parenthood lobbyist Jamie Burch Elliott opposes the bill.“It sends Iowa down a dangerous path when you define a fertilized egg as a person,” she says. “These changes could have unintended far-reaching consequences including outlawing certain forms of birth control, outlawing invitro fertilization.”Supporters say the proposal isn’t intended to ban abortion or any other medical procedure. The Iowa Senate passed this bill last year, and the House failed to advance it in 2019 ahead of a legislative deadline.Abortion opponents held a rally at the state capitol Monday. Representative Steven Holt of Denison chairs the House Judiciary Committee. He told the group a law passed last year may someday shift the court;s position on the issue because it allows the governor to appoint a majority of the panel that nominates future justices.“We will now have a court that will likely interpret the law by what is written on the page as opposed to rewriting it to match their agenda,” Holt says.The Iowa Court of Appeals rejected a lawsuit from Democratic legislators claiming the judicial nominating law is unconstitutional. The group plans to appeal that decision to the Iowa Supreme Court.last_img read more

Coutinho reported to complete Bayern coach Flick’s starting 11

first_imgPhilippe CoutinhoKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |   Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is said to be Bayern coach Hansi Flick’s missing jigsaw piece for Saturday’s Champions League duel against Chelsea.The 28-year-old is most likely going to replace injured French forward Kingsley Coman along the left flank, although he has only been on the pitch in action for 27 minutes since March.“He is in good shape at present and show his qualities,” the 55-year-old Bayern head coach commented.The last 16 second leg (3-0 in the first) could be the Brazilian’s last chance to present himself as the gifted on-loan footballer from Barcelona appears to be heading for English Premier League’s club Arsenal in the 2020/2021 season.For the other positions, the Bayern head coach will most likely choose the back-row of Alphonso Davies, David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, and Kimmich in front of keeper Manuel Neuer. Thiago and Goretzka are also likely to play in central midfield next to the forwards Mueller, Serge Gnabry, Coutinho, and Robert Lewandowski.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

We’ll know more as we go along before coming up with a target race. He looked fantastic Sunday morning.”A decision on the next race for Nyquist may not surface for at least a week, because O’Neill is going on a rare and welcome vacation next week to Montana.“I’m looking forward to it,” he said.

If you talk to guys like Joe Talamo, Gary Stevens and Mike Smith, this is what our sport is all about. Getting the best horses in their respective divisions together and deciding things on the track.”While Wrona allowed that yesterday’s field wouldn’t be compared to some of the epic runnings of the Gold Cup, dating back to Seabiscuit’s win in the inaugural edition in 1938, his adrenaline was flowing at full speed as the stretch run unfolded.“In my mind, there was no question that Melatonin was the horse to beat,” he said. “When he took the lead turning for home after those soft fractions, you knew he was going to be extremely tough, but Gary Stevens had other ideas. I mean, he had Win the Space, the longest shot in the race, in a position to win with less than a furlong to run but Melatonin showed his class and was drawing off at the end.”Wrona described it thusly: “Melatonin’s the leader. He’s pulling away. Dave Hofmans has transformed this gelding into a star stayer! Melatonin wins from Win the Space…”“We’ve seen some great performances just at this Spring Meet alone,” said Wrona. “From Songbird winning the Summertime Oaks and Beholder winning both the Adoration and the Vanity, Melatonin validated his win in the Big ‘Cap with that win yesterday and he proved he belongs on the same stage with the best horses in the country.”Fittingly, Michael Wrona has proven himself a worthy successor to one of Santa Anita’s all-time greats as he sets the stage daily in his hard-earned role as The Voice of Santa Anita.

We were all happy afterwards.”Addressing Saturday’s six victories, Hollendorfer took it in stride. “We had a real good day,” he said. “We’re very grateful.”Asked if he had ever won six races in one day, Hollendorfer said, “I don’t remember.” Mario Gutierrez63613310%35%$514,010 Bob Baffert44119625%59%$676,085 Alonso Quinonez4656611%37%$212,040 Brandon Boulanger4451411%23%$120,740 Peter Eurton3984521%44%$474,835 MELATONIN ‘LOOKS GOOD,’ COULD WAIT FOR AWESOME AGAINMelatonin, racing’s newest “overnight sensation,” was resting on his expanding laurels Sunday at Santa Anita, where the son of Kodiak Kowboy is unbeaten in four races, including two Grade I’s, the Santa Anita Handicap and yesterday’s Gold Cup at Santa Anita.The growing fan base of the five-year-old gelding trained by David Hofmans for Susan Osborne’s Tarabilla Farms may have to wait three months to see their hero race again.“So far he looks good,” said Hofmans, back on the beat as usual with his assistant and nephew, Brent Fabbri. “He ate up last night which is a key thing, because horses that run as hard as he did sometimes don’t eat up.“I was very proud of him. That was his best race. He ran two seconds faster than his last race at a mile and a quarter (1:59.79 for the Gold Cup; 2:02 flat for the Santa Anita Handicap on March 12). I was very pleased with his effort yesterday.“I don’t have a race in mind for him right now. I’ve got to give him time, because he’s not that big a horse. Maybe the Awesome Again here. I don’t know. We’ll see.”The Awesome Again will be run at Santa Anita on Oct. 1.Melatonin had not raced for two months before the Gold Cup, having finished second to Effinex in the Oaklawn Handicap April 16.For the 73-year-old Hofmans, who celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary Saturday with his wife, Linda Murray, widow of the late, great Los Angeles Times columnist, Jim Murray, Melatonin’s surprising success was but one in the 42-year racetrack run for the Los Angeles native.Hofmans won the 2003 Breeders’ Cup Distaff with 40-1 shot Adoration; the 2008 Turf Sprint at 36-1 with Desert Code; and the $4 million Classic in 1996 with Alphabet Soup, who paid $41.70 in upsetting two-time Horse of the Year Cigar. Hofmans also saddled Touch Gold for Frank Stronach to win the 1997 Belmont Stakes, costing Silver Charm the Triple Crown.The Gold Cup was a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” race, insuring a fees-paid berth to the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5, waiving a $150,000 entry fee.

Dinosaur Skin Found, Possible Soft Tissue

first_imgA mostly-complete duck-billed Edmontosaurus dinosaur has been found in Montana, reported the Discovery Channel.  A patch of skin from the hip was recovered.  The team from North Carolina State University and Museum of Natural Sciences was very careful.  They wanted to preserve any possible soft tissue, using techniques developed by Mary Schweitzer that last year revealed possible blood cells in a T. rex (11/11/2006).  The traditional bone focus appears to be shifting:“We’ve only been looking at one thing in the past, the dinosaur skeletal system, but we could learn so much more if we could study their circulatory system and other body systems,” Vince Schneider, curator of paleontology at the museum, told Discovery News.Schweitzer’s lab will be examining the specimen in more detail.  The skin fragment was preserved in three dimensions.  The fossil was buried in “fine sandstone stream sediments,” the report claims.    Jim Gilchrist in The Scotsman commented on the rapid growth of dinosaur discoveries, saying we are entering a golden age of dinosaur hunting.  He referred to the soft-tissue phenomenon, quoting Dr. Peter Dodson (U of Pennsylvania) calling it “staggering.”Now that paleontologists are realizing more than bone can be preserved, the search is on for soft tissue.  This is a burgeoning field to watch.  Is it possible evolutionary bias toward millions of years hindered paleontologists from even considering the possibility of soft tissue?    A team member speculated that the area was “probably a large river delta that opened into an inland sea,” and that the creature “probably drowned crossing at high flow.”  No marks of predators were found.  Moreover, “Evidence also suggests a lush forest with hardwood vegetation and leafy plants once stood there,” the article states.  Hadrosaurs and ceratopsians are large animals that were apparently well fed and content at this location when they perished.  Exercise: if you are not convinced these behemoths were afraid of high water in a stream, think of another scenario for what might have happened.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
