OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Mike Singletary single-handedly fueled a scintillating comeback that put Texas Tech in the Big 12 record books and left Texas A&M feeling a little less secure about its postseason prospects.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been indicted on two misdemeanor traffic charges in Tennessee after an accident that seriously injured another driver.
District Attorney Kim Helper says Haynesworth faces charges of reckless driving and having expired registration.
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Fallen NFL star Michael Vick must appear at a bankruptcy hearing next month but should pay his own way from the Kansas prison where he is serving time for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy, a judge ruled Wednesday.
At an hourlong hearing, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Santoro rejected the government's suggestions that he either postpone Vick's April 2 bankruptcy confirmation hearing or allow the suspended player to testify by video hookup from the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kan.
"I'm not going to be put in a position of determining credibility or demeanor over a television," said Santoro, who has insisted since Vick filed for bankruptcy in July that he would have to testify in person.
The U.S. attorney's office in Alexandria, Va., objected to a proposed court order compelling federal marshals to pick up the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback and bring him to Virginia. They cited the logistical burdens, security risks and costs of the temporary transfer.
Santoro said the government provided no evidence to back up the inconvenience and security concerns. However, he agreed with the government's claim that the taxpayers should not have to foot the bill.
The government provided no estimate of how much the trip would cost. One of Vick's criminal attorneys, Lawrence Woodward, presented receipts showing it only cost about $3,636 to bring Vick from Leavenworth to Surry County, Va., in November to plead guilty to state dogfighting charges. Vick paid for that trip.
