AROUND THE WEB:
— Reports from the Dominican Republic claim as Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura lay dying after a fatal car crash, the people who found him robbed him instead of helping him.
This report has yet to be confirmed by police. The report is Ventura was found still alive after the accident and looters robbed him of his World Series ring, among other belongings. Dominican journalist Euri Cabral reported this claim in an appearance on a Dominican radio station.
Pedro Martinez heard Cabral and commented on this alleged new development on Twitter:
— Bengals cornerback Adam Jones was caught on video verbally assaulting a police officer on Jan. 3 in a video released on Monday by Cincinnati police.
Jones yelled profanities and racial slurs at an arresting officer from the back of a police car. He is facing multiple charges for the incident leading to this.
“I hope you die tomorrow,” Jones is heard saying to the officer.
“You’re gonna be out of a job tomorrow,” he later said. It also appears Jones spat on the floor of the police car and said to the officer he would “spit on your ass if I could.”
Jones’ attorneys released the following statement: Adam Jones is deeply embarrassed and remorseful for his conduct and language after being arrested in early January. Mr. Jones has the utmost respect for law enforcement and the difficulties police encounter on a daily basis. Adam loves Cincinnati and considers it home. He sincerely apologizes to the officers, the Cincinnati Bengals organization and all the fans in Cincinnati.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Why does everybody make such a big deal? I don’t understand it….I don’t believe in a lot of things. Not to denounce anything. There are different things … I’ve known Gerry [Callahan] for a long time and I would consider, I don’t know friends, but would be very cordial if I saw you and I think we would have a lot of things to talk about. I don’t agree with everything. That’s fine, right?” — Tom Brady, on Kirk and Callahan, on his friendship with President Donald Trump
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Duron Harmon (26)
