Jayson Werth busted for reckless driving – clocked doing 105 in a 55

Jayson WerthJayson Werth may challenge Yasiel Puig for the title of fastest outfielder in baseball — and we’re not talking about 40-yard dash times.

Werth was cited for reckless driving on July 6 after being pulled over for speeding at 105 mph in a 55-mph zone, a check of the Fairfax General District Court shows. The Washington Nationals outfielder was scheduled to appear in court Aug. 8, but that hearing was continued to Nov. 12.

The Nats issued this statement to The Washington Post in response to Werth’s violation:

“The Washington Nationals have been in communication with right fielder Jayson Werth regarding this situation for multiple weeks,” a Nationals spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement. “Jayson is cooperating with the authorities. As it is an ongoing legal matter, the team has no further comment.”

The only good thing we can say about this citation is at least Werth wasn’t wearing pink shorts and caught on a dash cam video when he was busted for speeding.

Michigan WR Csont’e York sucker punches guy, knocks him out (Video)

Csonte-York-sucker-punchMichigan wide receiver Csont’e York was arrested on July 18 after allegedly assaulting a man outside a bar in Ann Arbor. On Tuesday, Ann Arbor police released a surveillance video that allegedly shows York brutally sucker-punching the victim.

According to MLive.com, the man York hit suffered a broken jaw and lost a tooth. The police report states that the victim’s jaw, which was broken in three places, needed to be wired shut and that he temporarily needed a breathing tube. You can see York wind up and punch the 23-year-old man at around the 19-second mark.

What prompted the attack? Apparently the 20-year-old York and fellow Michigan player Da’Mario Jones got into an argument with the victim and his friend because York thought the victim bumped into him. It sounds like there were a few differing accounts of what happened:

Dog the Bounty Hunter going after War Machine for Christy Mack

Dog-the-Bounty-HunterWar Machine, aka Jon Koppenhaver, is currently wanted by police in the wake of his alleged beating of Christy Mack on Friday. Mack released a series of gruesome photos on Monday that show the injuries she claims the former Bellator MMA fighter inflicted on her, and police have reportedly issued seven arrest warrants for War Machine.

Police are looking for War Machine, and so is Duane “Dog” Chapman. As many of you know, Chapman is the star of the reality TV series’ “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt.” He tweeted early Tuesday morning that he is going after War Machine.

Chapman has already been tweeting at various people to try to get some information on War Machine’s whereabouts. While Chapman has been spoofed on shows like “Southpark,” he has actually captured a few fugitives, including serial rapist Andrew Luster in 2003.

Greg Oden allegedly punched ex-girlfriend three times, broke her nose

Greg Oden mug shot

Greg Oden was arrested last week after allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend and he was charged Monday with three crimes including a felony.

The former Miami Heat center and No. 1 overall pick was charged with felony battery resulting in serious bodily injury, misdemeanor domestic battery, and misdemeanor battery resulting in serious bodily injury by Marion Superior County.

According to the Indy Star, police documents say Oden punched ex-girlfriend Christina Green in the face three times which broke her nose. The incident came after a night of drinking at a club. Oden’s mother allegedly heard the commotion and came over to pull her son off Green. She said the two have an argument every time they come over.

Green did not seem to cooperate with police at first. She was found with swelling and cuts on her nose and forehead and blood was seen on the sofa and ground, but she reportedly told responding officers that she fell. She would not allow officials to photograph her injuries.

Oden supposedly was cooperative with police and supposedly admitted his guilt.

“Thing go out of control, and I started to go after Christina. My mother and Toni tried to hold me back, but I swung my arms to move them out of the way and then punched Christina in the face. I was wrong, and I know what has to happen.”

Green was taken to the hospital and received three stitches for a cut.

Miami Heat reporter Ethan J. Skolnick added this after seeing the story about Oden being charged:

Christy Mack releases horrific War Machine beating photos

War Machine Christy Mack

Christy Mack released a statement Monday telling her side of the events that took place between her and War Machine early Friday that left her beaten with severe injuries.

Mack, who is a porn star, also shared gruesome photos that show the injuries she sustained as a result of the alleged beating by War Machine.

Mack says War Machine, whose real name is Jon Koppenhaver, showed up at her home in Las Vegas at 2:00 a.m. Friday unannounced. War Machine said on Twitter that he had an engagement ring and was going to propose to her, even though Mack says the fighter broke up with her in May and moved to San Diego.

Both say Mack was there with another man, whom Mack called a friend. Mack says War Machine then proceeded to beat the man without saying a word. Mack says her friend was unarmed and fully clothed.

After beating the friend, War Machine allegedly turned his attention to Mack and began beating her.

Mack says Koppenhaver beat her with multiple punches and kicks. He allegedly got a knife and prodded her in the ear, hand and head. She says she was able to escape when he went to the kitchen, presumably to look for a bigger knife to possibly kill her. She was able to run out the back door naked and knocked on neighbors’ doors until one let her in and took her to the hospital.

She lists the horrific results of the beating:

– 18 broken bones
– Nose broken in two places
– Missing and broken teeth
– Unable to see out of her left eye
– Fractured rib and severely ruptured liver from kick to her side
– Can’t walk because her leg is so bad

She adds that War Machine wanted to rape her but got upset with himself for being unable to achieve an erection and started punching her some more (War Machine has tweeted in the past about raping her).

Mack also said in her statement that War Machine cheated on her daily and beat her weekly.

“He has beaten me many times before, but never this badly.”

Mack says there is a $10,000 reward for Koppenhaver’s capture.

War Machine mug shot

War Machine was fired by Bellator MMA on Friday after the organization learned that the fighter is wanted by Las Vegas police for an alleged domestic violence incident that landed two people, including his porn star girlfriend Christy Mack, in the hospital.

War Machine, whose real name is Jon Koppenhaver, allegedly beat up his “significant other” and another person early Friday morning. The “significant other” has not been identified but is believed to be Mack.

“We are currently investigating allegations of a domestic dispute that occurred earlier today at approximately 4 a.m. in the 3400 block of Pueblo Way,” a Las Vegas police press release said. “During this incident two people sustained severe but non-life threatening injuries. Detectives are actively investigating this incident. As a result of this investigation, detectives have identified Jonathan Koppenhaver as the primary suspect.”

He kicked around different promotions after being released by the UFC for multiple controversial comments. He has fought three times for Bellator MMA since last year, but the organization released him in light of the allegations.

“We have a zero tolerance policy here at Bellator when it relates to any form of domestic violence, and after learning of this latest incident involving Jon Koppenhaver, War Machine, Bellator is releasing him from him promotional contract with the organization,” Bellator MMA president Scott Coker said in a statement sent to Larry Brown Sports and other outlets.

War Machine, who also has had a career in the adult film industry, has a history of violent arrests. From 2007-2010, he was arrested five times for assaults. Las Vegas police is searching for him.

The last tweet he sent seemed ominous:

Christy Mack’s Twitter account indicates she was involved in the incident. She had been promoting an appearance she was scheduled to make at an Art & Ink show at South Point hotel in Las Vegas, but she sent a note on Twitter Friday saying she wouldn’t be able to attend due to a personal emergency:

Another person on Twitter hinted that Mack and War Machine had broken up. War Machine did not take that tweet well:

That was sent a few hours before the alleged incident.

Greg Oden has classic mug shot after arrest for allegedly punching woman

Greg-Oden-mug-shot

Greg Oden was arrested early Thursday morning in Lawrence, Ind., after he allegedly punched a female. According to the probable cause affidavit obtained by WTHR, a witness claims to have seen the NBA free agent punch a woman in the face.

When officers arrived at the scene, they observed “blood, swelling to the nose, lacerations to the forehead and nose area of the victims face.” The victim was reportedly being uncooperative and claimed she fell but could not recall any details of her supposed tumble.

Oden, who said he dated the victim for two years but that the couple has been broken up for two months, admitted that he hit the woman.

“Things got out of control and I started to go after the victim,” he said. “My relative and witness tried to hold me back, but I swung my arms to move them out of the way, then punched the victim in the face. I was wrong and I know what has to happen.

A relative who lives at the home where the incident took place told police that she woke up when she heard Oden and the victim arguing. She said they argue frequently.

Oden has been booked on a Class A misdemeanor for battery with injury and a Class B misdemeanor for battery. This probably won’t help his chances of signing with an NBA team this offseason.

As for the mug shot — Ohio State must be cringing.
