AROUND THE WEB:
— Mets closer Jeurys Familia was arrested at his New Jersey home this week on charges of domestic violence.
Around 2 a.m. on Monday, police were called to Familia’s Fort Lee apartment he shares with his wife, Bianca Rivas, and 1 year-old son, Jeurys Jr., to find a victim with visible bruising and scratches.
MLB is investigating the charges.
The 27-year-old Familia was a part of an anti-domestic violence campaign this past season. He was featured in a 30-second ad for the “Not a Fan” campaign by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. In the ad, Familia says, “I’m a fan of baseball. I’m a fan of the Mets. I’m not a fan of domestic violence.”
“I am deeply disturbed by the allegations against Jeurys Familia and call on MLB to launch an immediate and thorough investigation,” said New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who organized the Not A Fan campaign. “The Familia ads will be removed from the campaign.”
— For a few stressful moments at Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, Brandon Marshall thought the Jets had dealt him.
Three minutes before the 4 p.m. deadline, Marshall was sitting in the green room at CBS waiting to tape an episode of “We Need to Talk” when his assistant told him he had a call from a member of the Jets organization.
“I put my head down and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I’m about to get traded,’ ” the wide receiver said.
He was relieved when he heard the real reason for the call.
“He said, ‘I just want to let you know. Don’t listen to the rumors. We’re not shopping you,'” Marshall recalled.
Marshall said he almost lost it when he thought he was going to be traded.
“I was about to cry,” he said. “I literally was about to cry. I was like, ‘How am I going to go on this show and maintain myself?’ But, I’m still a Jet.”
— A University of South Carolina football fan’s celebration after the team’s win did not end well for him.
South Carolina freshman Will Mackey was so excited after the Gamecocks beat Tennessee, 24-21, on Saturday that he stormed the field thinking the other fans in the student section would join him.
When Mackey took out his phone to film himself and the supposed stampede behind him, he quickly realized he was alone in this.
Storming the field is not allowed per SEC policy and Mackey was subsequently told he will not be able to request student tickets for the rest of the season.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I was shocked. I just work here. I’m just doing my job. It is what it is. Just have to keep moving forward.” — Malcolm Butler, on the Patriots trading Jamie Collins to the Browns
HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Danny Amendola (31), Jimmy Garoppolo (25)
