Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested for driving while impaired on Saturday morning. Matt Anderson of WKYC first reported the arrest, which took place at around 4:00 a.m. in North Carolina.

While it is unclear if Gordon was drinking or under the influence of drugs, Raleigh police captain Tommy Klein told Adam Schefter that Gordon appeared “appreciably impaired.”

Where do we even begin with this one? Gordon, who emerged as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL last season, is already facing a potential season-long suspension for a second failed marijuana test back in May. After word of the arrest surfaced, former Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson wrote on Twitter that Gordon needs serious help from those close to him.

Earlier this week, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that sources close to Gordon are concerned he will have a “hard time making it back into the NFL” if he is suspended for a full season. The 23-year-old’s latest arrest has his future looking even more grim.

WWE Diva Emma mug shot

WWE Diva Emma was released by the wrestling organization Wednesday, less than two days after being arrested for allegedly trying to steal an iPad case at a Walmart.

TMZ reported that Emma was arrested in Hartford where security spotted her shoplifting a red iHome ‘Slim Swivel’ iPad Mini case, which was on sale for $21.14.

Emma, whose real name is Tenille Dashwood, was charged with misdemeanor larceny in the sixth degree, went to court and was sentenced to a day of community service. She supposedly claimed she forgot to pay for the case in the self checkout.

None of that mattered to the WWE, which announced Wednesday that they had released her.

“WWE has come to terms on the release of WWE Diva Emma as of today, July 2, 2014. WWE wishes Emma the best in all her future endeavors,” they said in a statement.

WWE RAW also happened to be in Hartford the night of her arrest.

Claude Giroux arrested for ‘repeatedly grabbing buttocks of male police officer’

Claude-Giroux-FlyersPhiladelphia Flyers star Claude Giroux was reportedly arrested in Ottawa, Canada on Tuesday night when he allegedly got a little handsy with a police officer. And by handsy, we mean Giroux has been accused of grabbing the buttocks of a male officer multiple times.

Danielle Bell of the Ottawa Sun has some of the details:

Although few details were immediately available, a source said Giroux was arrested for repeatedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer. Alcohol is believed to have been involved.

A witness and sources say the incident occurred outside The Great Canadian Cabin in the Byward Market club district. They say officers were inside the bar when one officer had his butt grabbed by a patron. The officer told the patron not to behave like that, but was grabbed again. At that point, the patron was taken outside and arrested. The officer involved did not initially recognize Giroux.

Giroux reportedly spent the night in jail, but he is expected to be released on Wednesday without any criminal charges. Hopefully the 26-year-old will only need to be told once the next time he’s grabbing a cop’s butt without permission.

Giroux was third in the NHL in total points last season after scoring 28 goals and notching 58 assists. The Flyers said they are aware of the situation but will withhold comment until more information is known.

Kolb was released on Sunday on his own recognizance after spending around 10.5 hours in jail.

Kolb was released by the Buffalo Bills in March after missing the season because of concussion problems. He has thrown for 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions over his NFL career, which has been spent with the Eagles, Cardinals and Bills. Turning 30 before the season, Kolb will probably find some work during the NFL season, but his future does not look good.

According to Keloland.com, Patterson was arrested Wednesday on charges of first-degree kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault, and strangulation.

TMZ says Sioux Falls police responded to a call Tuesday morning and were able to apprehend Patterson. Patterson had been free on $750,000 bond and ordered not to contact the mother of the child or anyone else in the family.

Patterson, 28, who allegedly beat Peterson’s son Tyrese to death, allegedly knocked the victim unconscious and held her captive for more than an hour. The woman allegedly had visible injuries on her neck.

Bond reportedly has been set at $1 million cash only this time. Peterson had only recently found out that the child was his son.

Hope Solo’s nephew on 911 call: ‘Hope Solo is going psychotic’

Hope SoloAudio from the 911 call Hope Solo’s nephew made to police during the alleged domestic violence assault early Saturday morning has been released, and it shows how panicked the boy was.

Solo’s 17-year-old nephew has his phone call answered by an operator and gets connected to the police. While he’s waiting to be connected, you can hear him say, “Hope Solo is going psychotic. She’s f—ing beating people up and we need help.”

Solo and the nephew allegedly got into a fistfight after they traded words with each other. Solo allegedly punched her half-sister during the fight as well. She denied the allegations during a court appearance Monday.

Solo previously had a domestic incident with her husband Jerramy Stevens right before they got married. The charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Hope Solo’s nephew says he pulled BB gun during their fight

Hope SoloHope Solo was arrested over the weekend after allegedly hitting her sister and 17-year-old nephew during a fight at a house party and booked on two counts of 4th degree domestic violence assault. Solo’s nephew told police his side of the story, and he says he pulled a BB gun on the soccer goalie to try scaring her away.

According to The Seattle Times, Solo’s nephew told police that his mother, who is Solo’s older half-sister, just began letting Solo back into their lives. Solo supposedly showed up to a party at their home as if she had already been drinking. She was upset that her husband, Jerramy Stevens, was being a jerk and didn’t take her to catch a flight.

At the party, the nephew was talking about how he’s into performing arts and that he believes actors need to get into an athletic state of mind. Solo supposedly put him down after that remark — telling him he could never be a professional athlete — and the two got into a fistfight.

According to TMZ, the nephew walked into a different room to avoid the trash talk with Solo, Hope followed, and they did some name calling.

Solo supposedly called her nephew a p***y for calling his mother to help during the fight (Solo allegedly punch her half-sister in the face).

“I then told her to get her c*nt face out of my house,” the boy supposedly said in response.

Solo supposedly became enraged after that and attacked the boy, grabbing his hair and punching him. He then got an old BB gun in response to try getting her to back away.

“I then went into a back room and got an old gun that not work, pointed it at her and she kept coming at me. She didn’t leave but walked around me cornering me like a shark,” the nephew told police.

The gun didn’t scare away Hope. She only left when he called police, but she still tried coming back into the house. He says he beat her with a broomstick after that but she kept coming after him.

Solo is claiming that she was the victim in the fight.

None of this should come as a surprise; Solo has been a part of multiple incidents over the years and clearly has a temper and short fuse. She got into it with an opposing fan base last month, and she had a notable incident with Stevens two years ago. She is definitely someone you do not want to upset.
