NFL star Earl Thomas was held at gunpoint by his wife Nina Thomas after she found him naked in bed with several other women, TMZ is reporting.

This allegedly occurred on April 13, when the Baltimore Ravens safety, 31, was confronted by his spouse at an Airbnb rental in Austin, Texas.

An enraged Nina allegedly pointed a 9mm Berreta at Earl’s head, before he managed to wrestle the weapon away from her.

Newman was trapped in the smoking wreckage and has to be cut from the vehicle

President Trump is ‘praying’ for Ryan Newman, who is in a serious condition in hospital following a fiery crash during the final lap of the Daytona 500 on Monday night.

Newman, who was leading the famous race in his No. 6 Ford Mustang, was zooming around the speedway at 195 miles per hour when the smash happened.

‘Praying for Ryan Newman, a great and brave @NASCAR driver,’ the Commander-in-chief tweeted out, just two days after his own highly-publicized visit to the raceway.

The incident occurred when Newman’s car was nudged up against a wall and flipped over just meters from the finish line.

Two Ohio State football players who are accused in criminal complaints of raping a woman in a Columbus apartment complex last week have been dismissed from the team, according to a statement from Coach Ryan Day.

Defensive backs Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint, both 21 and due to be seniors next season, were arrested early Wednesday on felony charges of rape and kidnapping, according to Franklin County online jail records.

An altercation between a college football player and Ohio police officers Monday during a traffic stop ended up with the man slamming one of the officers, dashcam video shows.

Michael Harris, a linebacker for Eastern Kentucky University, was seen on the video in a parking lot near what appeared to be his SUV. As a Grove City police cruiser pulled up, the dashcam video showed Harris and another officer talking to each other.

Harris at one point put his hands up while being patted down. More words were exchanged and one officer appeared to put one of his hands on the back of the player’s head. Harris then tried to get back into the vehicle, but was pushed away and officers tried to arrest the man.

A witness took pictures of the flaming wreckage after seeing the helicopter slam into a California hillside

Photos taken in the aftermath of the crash show the flaming wreckage of the chopper after the pilot had told air traffic controllers he was climbing to avoid a cloud layer. Ara Zobayan had asked for and received special clearance to fly in heavy fog just minutes before the crash and was flying at 1,400 feet when he went south and then west, an accident investigator said Monday. They also revealed there was no black box on board but instead an iPad which was used for flight itinerary as the crash site in Calabasas, California is being actively patrolled for looters by officers on horseback. Pilot Zobayan asked for air traffic controllers to provide ‘flight following’ radar assistance but was told the craft was too low for that assistance, Jennifer Homendy of the National Transportation Safety Board said. The crash killed NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna (pictured together right) as well as pilot Zobayan and six others.

Many technical terms in use for people not familiar with aviation, however, it seems the pilot of Kobe’s helicopter was adept and familiar with the airspace. The pilot was using major highways in the area as a means of navigation to the Mamba Academy. For the most part, it sounds like business as usual for the pilot and ATC. Whatever happened to cause the crash happened pretty quickly. This video is sped up a bit so it doesn’t reflect the real-time operation of Kobe’s chopper, but essentially, the pilot (due to whatever reasons) stopped responding to ATC for about 3 minutes before unfortunately crashing. NTSB and the helicopter’s manufacturer will produce the black box from the crash site. This will show all inputs and decisions the pilot made leading to the crash, as well as the mechanical state of the helicopter and any potential failures. Unfortunately, accidents in aviation do happen, and it hurts to have lost someone so important to our culture that has bridged the gap on our behalf the world over. I’m providing this as a way for some of yall to hopefully make sense of what happened, and maybe as a means of closure. I do not see foul play here: just God calling one of his soldiers home.

A baseball game between a group of 7-year-old kids degenerated into an all-out brawl with parents throwing haymakers, others cowering for cover and a woman even jumping on someone’s back. The reason for the brawl: a parent didn’t like the calls being made by a 13-year-old umpire. Police issued four citations for disorderly conduct, but said they are still searching for others involved in the fight.

Dallas Cowboys defensive captain Tyrone Crawford brawled with an entire team of bouncers at a Florida bar, as captured in security footage that was revealed on Wednesday.

The 6foot4, 290-pound defensive lineman engaged in the fight on March 15 at the Coyote Ugly Saloon in Panama City Beach, Florida, according to TMZ.

But while the Cowboys and the NFL are aware of the incident, Crawford was never actually arrested – although that does not guarantee he won’t be punished by the league for violating the personal conduct policy.

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver may not be the most popular guy in Arizona these days, but I’d venture to guess that not many people hate his guts more than Greta Rogers. Rogers has quickly become an internet sensation thanks to her merciless evisceration of Sarver at a Phoenix city council meeting this week. One of the biggest hot-button issues at that meeting was a proposal that would give Sarver and the Suns $150 million in public funding for renovations at Talking Stick Resort Arena

The Kansas City Chiefs have released star running back Kareem Hunt, saying that he lied about kicking and shoving a 19-year-old woman during an altercation that was caught on video. Video footage of the incident at a Cleveland hotel in February emerged on Friday, and the Chiefs said in a statement that the footage proved that Hunt had been ‘untruthful’ with investigators.

The Chiefs said that Hunt would be released ‘immediately’. Hunt, 23, had helped propel the Chiefs to first place in the AFC with a 9-2 record, and had been seen as one of the team’s best shots of securing a Super Bowl title. It is now unclear whether he will ever play again. In addition to being cut from the Chiefs, Hunt has been placed on the NFL Commissioner Exempt list, meaning he is barred from practicing, playing in or attending games. Hunt responded to being cut in a statement to ESPN, saying: ‘I want to apologize for my actions. I deeply regret what I did. I hope to move on from this.’

Police confronted Evans outside, telling him to stay on the ground and put his hands in the air. But Evans stood up and continued to move toward the street as the cops yelled at him. They then fired a bean bag round at him. Just seconds later, Evans shot himself in the head.

Officers responded to the Bogey Bar & Grill in Shawnee Hills, Ohio on Friday for reports of a drunk man ‘stumbling and knocking people over’. They removed former pro-football player Kirk Barton from the premises and got him a cab to take home. The former Ohio State offensive lineman, 33, slammed the taxi van door on one of the cop’s hands when he tried to help the driver determine Barton’s address. Another cop then had to tase Barton twice to subdue him so they could take him into custody. He faces a charge of felony assault.

NFL star Michael Bennett surrendered to police Monday after being indicted by a Texas grand jury on the charge of injury to an elderly woman at the Super Bowl. After the New England Patriots’ historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons, Bennett could not have been happier to see his brother, Martellus, win a Super Bowl, and wanted to join him on the field. Cops say Michael Bennett, 32, pushed a 66-year-old woman in a wheelchair out of the way to get to the field.

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, who have been suspended indefinitely by the Bruins, apologized at a news conference Wednesday morning about the incident in China that had them stay behind on a team trip after they were accused of shoplifting. At the end of the news conference, UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said that the players each admitted guilt and that charges had been withdrawn by Chinese authorities. They had paid $2,200 bail, surrendered their passports and agreed to travel restrictions. The bail was refunded. UCLA paid the expenses incurred by the players who were left behind when the rest of the team returned home, but said they may seek reimbursement
