AROUND THE WEB:

• Police in Boca Raton, Fla., arrested a 20-year-old tanning salon technician in connection with the theft of documents related to the Biogenesis scandal.

Reginald St. Fleur was linked to the theft of the files from the car of former Biogenesis employee Porter Fischer by some blood stains on the door handle. He was arrested Wednesday and charged with armed burglary.

Major League Baseball paid cash for documents that connected numerous players, including Alex Rodriguez, to the since-closed anti-aging clinic. However, an MLB source told the New York Daily News, “We have never had any dealings with this individual.”

The Daily News reports that the man who sold the documents to MLB, Gary Jones, worked with St. Fleur at Boca Tanning. Fischer reportedly worried earlier this year that he had been double-crossed by Jones and St. Fleur.

According to a police statement about St. Fleur’s arrest: “He told [police] he did not know about the burglary, does not know Fischer, and never touched anyone’s car. When investigators explained his blood was found on Fischer’s car, St. Fleur again denied knowledge of the crime and he did not speak further with detectives.”

• In other A-Rod news, MLB wants the player’s public relations representative held in contempt of court for refusing to testify in last month’s appeal hearing.

Michael Sitrick, whose firm is accused by MLB of leaking information about other players’ involvement in the Biogenesis scandal to the media in an attempt to deflect attention from Rodriguez, has refused to travel to New York from his Southern California home or even testify by video or phone, despite being ordered to do so by U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos. Sitrick also won’t provide documents requested by MLB lawyers, who want a judge to order Sitrick or Rodriguez to pay a daily fine “in an amount sufficient to cause him to comply” with the order.

Sitrick’s lawyers had the case moved to federal court, and they want him to get a pass because they say he was part of Rodriguez’s legal team and should be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Terry Bradshaw apparently did not get the memo to be supportive of the first Super Bowl being played in the Northeast. During a weekly segment on New York’s WFAN radio, the Fox Sports studio analyst blasted the league for awarding the game to MetLife Stadium.

“Thank you, commissioner, thank you Super Bowl committee for putting us in New York,” the Steelers legend said. “And we all know why we’re in New York, it’s because they overpaid for that stupid stadium in New Jersey. … By the way, not a gorgeous stadium, either.

“It’s freakin’ outside in New York, are you kidding me? Not even New York — New Jersey. It’s not like Minnesota, it’s a dome. It’s not like it’s Detroit, it’s a dome. It’s not like it’s Indy, it’s a dome. … I don’t want it to be bad, ’cause I’m there. I don’t want it to bad, I want it to be nice, but I don’t think you should be putting Super Bowls in northern cities in the winter time.”

Added Bradshaw: “You should be in Florida or California or Arizona, where there [are] no excuses. What if the Saints make it there? What if Seattle [qualifies]. … Teams that run the football will have a bigger advantage than teams that throw the football. What if we get two passing teams? What if they get Denver there? What if it’s pouring down snow? You get a bad game.”

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On Dec. 12, 1975, the Red Sox traded Roger Moret to the Braves for which pitcher, known in part for the fact that he caught Hank Aaron‘s 715th home run ball in the bullpen in 1974?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It was just a really nice day. This is, it’s just such a classy place here. … They cheer for their teams and they love their athletes. The best decision I ever made was 10 years ago, when I decided to come.” – An emotional Doc Rivers, after making his return to Boston as coach of the Clippers

STAT OF THE DAY: 23 – Points by which the Knicks led the Bulls before squandering the lead, then regaining their composure to pull out an 83-78 victory

‘NET RESULTS (mobile users, check the website to see the videos): Steph Curry hits a 3-pointer with three seconds remaining to cap the Warriors’ comeback from an 18-point deficit vs. the Mavericks.
