Basketball Coach Restrained During Expletive-Filled Ejection [Video]

Vanderbilt head coach Jerry Stackhouse was restrained by several members of his coaching staff and a police officer following his ejection from this week’s game against VCU.

Tensions mounted during the game’s second half when Vanderbilt player Liam Robbins got a technical foul. Stackhouse, unhappy with the call, yelled at the officials and received two technical fouls — resulting in an automatic ejection from the game.

Videos of the incident show an irate Stackhouse charging toward the referees and screaming “f—k you.” He was escorted to the locker room.

Stackhouse, a two-time NBA All Star, has been Vanderbilt’s head coach since 2019. The team now holds a 3-4 record after losing to VCU.

Police Remove NFL Player from Flight

NFL free agent Odell Beckham Jr. was removed from an American Airlines flight after he “refused to comply with safety protocol,” police said.

The Miami-Dade Police Department’s Det. Argemis “AC” Colome said the wide receiver was escorted from the plane at approximately 9:30 a.m., after the flight crew had declared a medical emergency.

“The flight crew was concerned for a passenger [Mr. Odell Beckham], as they tried to wake him to fasten his seat belt, he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness, prior to their departure,” Colome said.

“Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill, and that his condition would worsen through the expected 5 hour flight, the attendants called for police and fire rescue. Upon the officers’ arrival, the flight crew asked Mr. Beckham several times to exit the aircraft, which he refused,” he continued.

According to Colome, at that point, the aircraft was deplaned, “at which time Mr. Beckham was asked by the officers to exit the plane, and did so without incident.”

Officers escorted the 30-year-old to a non-secure area of the terminal “where he made other arrangements,” police said.

Beckham’s lawyer told ESPN that his client had been asleep and the incident was caused by an “overzealous flight attendant.”

“At no time was Mr. Beckham disruptive or combative,” said Daniel Davillier, an attorney for Beckham. “He was willing to comply with the seatbelt requirement, but the flight attendant wanted to prove that he had the authority to have Mr. Beckham removed from the flight.”

The athlete addressed the situation in a series of tweets, calling the incident “comedy hour.”

Fellow passengers didn’t seem to share in Beckham’s amusement, which delayed their Los Angeles-bound flight.

“Forcing us off the plane because you were unresponsive and unruly is not comedy to the hundreds of folks trying to get home dude. Not cool man,” one passenger wrote on Twitter.

ESPN Host Walks Off Set After Joke “Crossed the Line” [Video]

Tensions rose during an ESPN broadcast when an analyst cracked a joke about his co-analyst’s wife.

SEC host Peter Burns jokingly asked his co-host Ben Watson, a former NFL player, if he didn’t “get the memo” about wearing a dark suit for the broadcast. Burns and the other two hosts, Chris Doering and Takeo Spikes, were all wearing dark suits while Watson wore a light blue suit.

“We all went dark today, you’re like Easter service,” Burns quipped.

Watson retorted that he didn’t care “as long as I get a text from my wife that says I look good.”

Burns then quipped, “That’s not the text she sent me.”

At that point, the broadcast cut to highlights of the Florida-Vanderbilt game. When the show came back from a commercial break, only Doering and Spikes were at the desk.

“Just you and I here, Takeo,” Doering said. Watson made his way back to the desk, as Doering added that he was “not sure what happened to Peter Burns.”

“Did you have him keep your wife’s name out of his mouth?” Doering asked Watson.

“Huh?” Watson responded, as he sat down and slammed his phone on the desk.

“We’ll see how Peter Burns is with that smart mouth in the second half,” Doering said jokingly.

Burns later tweeted a selfie with Watson, alongside the hashtag “friendship.”

Watson responded to the post, writing, “Moving on. But you still owe [Mrs.] Watson a public apology.”

Burns later posted a public apology.

“While it was [a] joke, the truth is that I crossed the line, you should never joke about family so that I owe a public apology to Ben & Kirsten 100%,” he wrote on Twitter. “[Watson] couldn’t have handled it better with his humor and class.”

Burns said they were “all good” and he was “proud to call [Watson] a friend & coworker.”

3 UVA Football Players Fatally Shot

Police have arrested a 22-year-old man who allegedly fatally shot three members of the University of Virginia (UVA) football team and injured two others.

Timothy Longo, UVA’s chief of police, announced the arrest during a press conference on Monday morning. He said the tragic incident occurred when the football team returned to the school on a charter bus.

Officials said that UVA police responded to a report of shots fired near a parking garage on Culbreth Road at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. Two students on the charter bus were pronounced dead after police arrived on the scene, while a third was taken to a nearby hospital and later succumbed to his injuries there.

The deceased victims were identified as sophomore Devin Chandler, junior Lavel Davis, and senior D’Sean Perry.

Authorities identified the suspect as Christopher Darnell Jones, Jr., a UVA student. Jones was charged with three counts of second-degree murder and three counts of using a handgun in commission of a felony, Longo said.

“This is an extraordinarily difficult day for our community, and we need to comfort and support each other and those closest to the victims of this horrendous shooting,” UVA President Jim Ryan said.

Ryan said two other students remain in the hospital, one stable and one in critical condition. He declined to identify the students.

“It’s been an incredibly long evening, very tragic circumstances for our university community, for the city of Charlottesville, the county of Albemarle, the Commonwealth,” Longo said. “It’s especially tragic for a small number of families who we had to break some really bad news to.”

Longo said that Jones, the alleged shooter, had been “called to our attention” in September after the school received a report that Jones had made a remark about possessing a firearm.

“He had been called to our attention,” Longo said.

The police chief said Jones hadn’t made any threats, and his roommate had indicated that he hadn’t seen a gun. Jones was also previously involved in a hazing investigation that was closed, Longo added.

Longo said that during their investigation, school officials discovered that Jones had received a concealed weapons violation in February 2021.

UVA rules dictate that he was required to report the violation, but he didn’t, Longo said.

Football Season Canceled Over Controversial “Slave Auction”

A high school in California canceled its season after a “disturbing” video surfaced showing the players acting out a “slave auction.”

“I received a copy of a recording of River Valley High School football team members acting out a reprehensible act of a slave auction,” Yuba City Unified School District Superintendent Doreen Osumi wrote in an email.

“The recording clearly demonstrates that this situation was orchestrated and organized, which underscores my concern that students spent time contemplating this terrible act without the slightest regard that this action is hateful and hurtful.”

The superintendent said that while the River Valley players “may argue that it was a joke, and they intended no harm, but the fact is that this is not only harmful, it is disgraceful.”

The students determined to be involved in the incident were kicked off the team. As a result, the varsity team didn’t have enough players to compete and had to cancel the rest of the season.

Osumi said that the players involved “violated our student athlete code of conduct which they all signed and committed to follow, and that will not be ignored or minimized.”

“Re-enacting a slave sale as a prank tells us that we have a great deal of work to do with our students so they can distinguish between intent and impact.  They may have thought this skit was funny, but it is not; it is unacceptable and requires us to look honestly and deeply at issues of systemic racism.  We know that corrective action may be required in accordance with policy, but it is education, honest, open discussions and instruction that will guide our students to realize that their choices and actions have consequences,” she said.

The superintendent said district and administration officials “are working in earnest to identify lessons and programs to help our student body learn from this situation.”

“When students find humor in something that is so deeply offensive, it tells me that we have an opportunity to help them expand their mindset to be more aware, thoughtful and considerate of others,” Osumi said.

Tennis Pro Loses It: “Shut the F—k Up” [Video]

Canadian professional tennis player Denis Shapovalov had an expletive-laden suggestion for audience members.

Shapovalov yelled “shut the f—k up” to the fans in attendance at the Italian Open after they started to boo him during his first-round match.

The crowd was annoyed by the 23-year-old’s repeated arguments with the umpire. At a make-or-break point for Shapovalov, he was arguing with the official, who had already warned him about crossing over the net.

“I was just showing you the mark,” Shapovalov shouted.

The umpire told the tennis pro “that’s just the rule.”

“No it’s not, it’s stupid,” he fired back.

As the argument continued, the fans started to boo Shapovalov loudly.

Dodgers Star Suspended For Two Seasons Over Allegations

Major League Baseball has suspended Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer for two seasons without pay for violating the league’s policy on domestic violence and sexual assault.

Bauer’s suspension follows allegations from a woman who claims that he physically and sexually assaulted her last year, which Bauer denies.

“In the strongest possible terms, I deny committing any violation of the league’s domestic violence and sexual assault policy,” Bauer said. “I am appealing this action and expect to prevail. As we have throughout this process, my representatives and I respect the confidentiality of the proceedings.”

If the suspension holds, Bauer will lose roughly $60 million.

The Dodgers issued a statement following MLB’s decision, saying their organization “takes all allegations of this nature very seriously and does not condone or excuse any acts of domestic violence or sexual assault.”

“We’ve cooperated fully with MLB’s investigation since it began, and we fully support MLB’s Joint Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Abuse Policy, and the Commissioner’s enforcement of the Policy. We understand that Trevor has the right to appeal the Commissioner’s decision. Therefore, we will not comment further until the process is complete.”

Video: WWE Superstar Arrested for DUI, Called Police Officer an “A**hole”

A newly released video of WWE star Jimmy Uso’s DUI arrest shows the wrestler belligerent with the police officer who pulled him over in July 2021, calling him an “a**hole.”

The footage shows a Pensacola Police Department officer wishing Uso luck passing the field sobriety test, which the 36-year-old evidently took as an insult.

“I’m hoping you beat it this time, too,” the officer said.

“Are you serious?!” Uso asked the cop. “Are you serious?! Why would you say that? I just — it’s all good.”

A few moments later, after the WWE Superstar was taken to a nearby parking lot to complete the sobriety test, Uso continued to press the officer about his comment.

“You’re an a***hole,” Uso said. “You’re the one that’s worse. You had a remark — you made a remark you shouldn’t have did.”

“I think you misunderstood,” the officer said. “So, I’m sorry. I was actually being nice. But, I’m sorry.”

Uso was previously arrested for a DUI in July 2019.
