NFL Fines, Suspends Ray Rice: Is The Hit To His Wallet Tax Deductible? – Forbes

Things got worse when Brandy’s brother allegedly spit on a police officer and kicked out the window of his cop car. Now, Ray J is being charged with four counts of resisting arrest, three counts of assault and battery and two counts of vandalism. As for the last charge, for sexual battery, that comes from Ray J brushing against a female bar patron’s rear end during the scuffle. Police have expressed that this charge is overreaching on the D.A.’s part since the physical contact was incidental, not intentional, but the D.A. slapped Ray with it anyway. No word on when Ray J will have his day in court. BET.com is your #1 source for Blackcelebritynews ,photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.

Instead, they drafted a second shooting guard in the top 10 for two consecutive drafts. It’s become more and more apparent that Ben McLemore is on thin ice, which could open up the lion’s share of the shooting guard minutes for Stauskas. The Kings seem like they’ll want him to handle the ball a lot more than McLemore did. The loss of Isaiah Thomas puts the Kings in a predicament because Darren Collison isn’t a great distributor and neither is backup Ray McCallum. Nik could run the offense in a perfect world. He shouldn’t have too tough of a time getting minutes in the 25-28 range on the wing for the Kings.

Baltimore Ravens Camp Report: Day 3 – ESPN

The argument could be made that its the expense not the behavior that matters most. Realistically, while his conduct was personal, the fine is a business fine: he broke the rules of his workplace. Paying the fine for breaking the rules is completely necessary for Rice to continue to work. If Rice doesnt pay the business-related fine, he cant continue to play in the NFL and thus, continue to generate income from the business of simply being him. In that way, paying that fine could arguably be considered a business expense. It might have been an argument worth making except for the fact that Rice already fails the first test.

Adams, Pierzynski lead Cardinals past Cubs 6-3 – 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

“I don’t want to get my coach fired,” Suggs said after the play. Right tackle Rick Wagner continues to look solid at right tackle. He held his own against Elvis Dumervil see page in team drills. Wagner’s chief competition for the job, Jah Reid , has really slimmed down. Rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro showed off his quickness in catching passes over the middle. He’s fighting for one of the last receiver spots.
