Sprewell investigated in sexual assault case
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police were questioning former NBA player Latrell Sprewell Wednesday in connection with a sexual assault allegation.

Milwaukee police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz said Sprewell, of River Hills, voluntarily appeared at their downtown offices Wednesday with his attorneys. She declined to say if he was a suspect in the assault.

Police had a report of a second-degree sexual assault from a 21-year-old Milwaukee woman, but Schwartz wouldn't say what that involved. The assault allegedly happened on a boat at the McKinley Marina on Tuesday. more

Vikings' Dwight Smith cited for indecent conduct
MINNEAPOLIS (Star-Tribune) -- Minneapolis police cited Minnesota Vikings safety Dwight Smith and a 24-year-old Hudson woman for indecent conduct about 1:30 a.m. today in downtown.

Officers released Smith, 28, a sixth-year player signed as a free agent last month by the Vikings, and the woman at the scene at 601 1st Av. N. according to a police report about the incident.

Smith and the woman were found in a stairwell after police received a call, Lt. Thomas Rice said this morning. more

Owens chalks up tardiness to oversleeping
IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Terrell Owens overslept. That's it.

He insists he wasn't late for work Friday to send a messages to his bosses, test his boundaries or anything else his critics might think.

And, get this: He says it'll probably happen again, even if he was fined $9,500.

"I think everybody has overslept, you know, once or twice in their life," Owens said Monday, more amused than angry that a fuss is being made over something that's happened to him before, though not since he's joined the Cowboys.

"It's not a big deal," he said. "It was not something I purposely tried to do. It's something that I will try to make more of an effort, a better effort, to get here on time. Other than that, it's really not a big issue."

Jerry Jones agrees, pointing out that some of the most upstanding citizens in team history were fined for similar transgressions.

He also insisted it's a mistake to read more into Owens' tardiness, the fine and his lingering hamstring issue simply because of T.O.'s past.

"From my standpoint, it's all good," Jones said. "Apart from him not being on the field and getting repetitions, has it in any way affected relationships on this team, teammates on this team, relationships between me and Bill, me and the coaching staff, Terrell and Bill, Terrell and the coaching staff? Zero impact there."

Owens called his tardiness "very unfortunate" and apologized to his teammates. But, he added, "I've got to move on. I can't let this get me down." more

Finn takes gold at mobile phone throwing contest
SAVONLINNA, Finland (Reuters) - Anyone wanting to throw away their mobile phone can do it in style and may even win a medal -- at the Mobile Phone Throwing World Championship, Finland's latest contribution to offbeat athleticism.

Originally a local event in this small town close to the Russian border, the seventh annual contest Saturday drew some 100 throwers from as far afield as Canada, Russia and Belgium.

Founder Christine Lund describes the event as a good source of light exercise with an environmentally friendly twist. "There are a lot of mobile phones on the second-hand market, and we are recycling them (before they become toxic waste)," she said.

The inventive Finns had already given the world the Sauna World Championships and the Wife Carrying Competition before coming up with a new way to make mobile phones even more mobile.

This year's gold medal went to Finland's Lassi Etelatalo, who flung a scrapped Nokia unit a forceful 89.00 meters. "I prepared by javelin throwing, I haven't really practiced throwing mobile phones," Etelatalo told Reuters. more
