OHIO COUNY, Ind. – An Ohio County couple has been arrested in connection to a drug distribution investigation, Indiana State Police Spokesman Sgt. Noel Houze said.Officers apprehended Patrick W. Hill, 45, and Kimberly A. Hill, 44, at their Pleasant Ridge home Friday morning without incident.The couple is currently being held at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center facing multiple charges for suspicion of dealing narcotics.ISP detectives say the arrest was a result of a one year investigation into the distribution of drugs in both Dearborn and Ohio counties.
Dallas Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick has been suspended by the National Football League for testing positive for drugs, admitting that he ingested illicit narcotics during a vacation trip to Mexico.The ex-boyfriend of “Basketball Wives L.A.” star Draya Michele (or so she says they are split up) is banned from playing in the first four games of the 2014-15 regular season because he tested positive for PEDs. He said that his girlfriend at the time — we assume that it was Draya Michelle — convinced him to take a foreign substance for his benefit. He said it turned out to be “mollies.”Just how did he allow his gold-digging, bottom-feeding girlfriend to convince him to take a foreign substance is beyond most Cowboys fans and critics alike.Scandrick has already appealed the suspension and lost. His four-game ban is upheld.Scandrick is a significant blow for a Cowboys defense that ranked dead last in the NFL in 2013. Moreover, with defensive end DeMarcus Ware and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher leaving in the offseason, and linebacker Sean Lee out for the season with a devastating ACL tear, Scandrick leaves the Cowboys’ defense dangerously thin and they threaten to be even worse than last year.Scandrick was the Cowboys’ top cornerback last season and one of the team’s few bright spots on defense through the first two weeks of training-camp practices.Scandrick’s image and team leadership role are severely compromised as he was considered one of the team’s emotional leaders and well-respected among his defensive peers.Scandrick had just signed a five-year, $25 million contract extension before the start of the 2011 season. The 2013 extension added $9 million in guaranteed money.This was resultant from Scandrick’s dramatically improved play. He set career-highs last season for tackles (70), pass breakups (15) and interceptions (two). Last season, he ranked fifth on the team in tackles, second in pass breakups and third in interceptions.Worse, his competition for the starting defensive back position with Claiborne is finished. But Clairborne hasn’t finished a practice since July 29 while battling right knee tendinitis and he has battled injuries the past few seasons, opening the way for Scandrick’s emergence. He said he’s close to returning. Claiborne and Carr could be back in team drills this week.Yesterday, Scandrick released a statement following his suspension announcement through his agent. The agent also added a statement of his own. See what he and the agent have to say below:
ARCADIA, Calif. (March 23, 2017)–A bit rank early, Irish-bred September Stars leveled off when it counted under Gary Stevens, as she took Thursday’s $56,000 Santa Anita allowance feature by a measured length while getting a mile and one eighth on turf in 1:48.16. Idle since well beaten in England on Sept. 23, September Stars is trained by Paddy Gallagher.Breaking from the rail in a field of six older fillies and mares, September Stars, a 4-year-old filly, was a handful with Stevens under the wire the first time, but settled some down the backstretch. A close fourth behind a three-horse spread turning for home, Stevens angled to the rail furlong out and September Stars rocketed to the lead and won in-hand late over Mrs. Norris, who had first run on her turning for home.“I saw that she had pulled some in her races over there (England),” said Stevens. “Wow…she’s got some gears.”Off at 5-1, September Stars paid $13.40, $6.60 and $3.80. Owned by Andrew Rosen and Edward Easton, she picked up $33,600 for the win, increasing her earnings to $49,201. She now has three wins from nine career starts.“She had trained nice,” said Gallagher, himself born and bred on the Emerald Isle. “A mile and one eighth looks like a really good distance for her.”Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Mrs. Norris, who finished 2 ½ lengths in front of Sweet Dragon Fly, was off at 6-1 and paid $5.60 and $3.40.English-bred Sweet Dragon Fly, who was ridden by Joe Talamo, was off at 9-1 and paid $5.00 to show.Heavily favored at even money, Radiantly, who was ridden by Brice Blanc, was done three furlongs from home and finished fifth.Fractions on the race were 23.61, 48.25, 1:12.66 and 1:36.89.
