Bodycam video shows Iowa football player searched in park


July 27th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Police have released body camera footage showing a University of Iowa football player being questioned by police who were searching for a robbery suspect. The footage released Tuesday shows an encounter defensive end Faith Ekakitie described in a Facebook post earlier this week. He wrote that he was playing “Pokemon Go” in a public park when he was surrounded by police and searched at gunpoint. Ekakitie said he feared for his life but understood why police did what they did.

In the video, an officer can be heard telling Ekakitie to put his hands up. The officer says, “It’s probably not you, but we’ve got to double check.” Ekakitie tells the officers he’d been playing the popular smartphone game, which sends players to physical locations to “catch” virtual Pokemon characters. After the officers check Ekakitie’s ID, one thanks him for his cooperation.

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Tomas Telis homered and singled, driving in four runs and scoring a pair as the New Orleans Zephyrs defeated the Iowa Cubs 9-5 on Tuesday. Isaac Galloway doubled and singled for New Orleans. Down 1-0, New Orleans batted around in the third inning, sending 11 batters to the plate and scoring six runs, including a two-run single by Telis.

Following the big inning, the Cubs cut into the deficit in the next half-inning when Juan Perez hit a three-run home run. The Zephyrs later added two runs in the fifth and one in the sixth. In the fifth, Telis hit a two-run home run, while Robert Andino hit an RBI double in the sixth.

New Orleans starter Justin Nicolino (5-4) picked up the win despite allowing five runs and seven hits over 5 1/3 innings. Opposing starter Jake Buchanan (9-6) took the loss after allowing six runs and seven hits over four innings. Perez homered and doubled, driving home three runs and scoring a couple for the Cubs.

July 27th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

NEW YORK (AP) — Bartolo Colon pitched three-hit ball for seven sharp innings and the New York Mets overcame another home run by Jedd Gyorko to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 Tuesday night for a doubleheader split. Gyorko homered in both ends and has connected seven times in nine games. His two-run shot helped St. Louis win the opener 3-2.

Colon (9-5) struck out eight and walked none. After Gyorko homered in the second and Alberto Rosario doubled in the third, Colon set down 14 of his final 15 batters. Addison Reed worked the eighth and Jeurys Familia closed for his 36th save this year and 52nd in a row during the regular season.
