Chiefs cornerback Smith cited after alleged wreck


June 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Chiefs cornerback Sean Smith was cited for driving under the influence and careless driving after an officer witnessed him lose control and strike a light pole early Monday. According to a copy of the police report, Smith was attempting to make a turn in Kansas City’s Power & Light entertainment district when he struck the light pole around 12:30 a.m. The officer reported that Smith “appeared confused and began mumbling statements that I did not understand.”

Smith declined medical attention. Along with citations for driving under the influence, he was also cited for failure to provide insurance. The Chiefs said in a statement issued to The Associated Press on Tuesday that they were aware of the matter. The statement called the situation “disappointing” but declined further comment.

Wainwright wins 9th, Cards beat Rays 1-0


June 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Adam Wainwright became the NL’s first nine-game winner, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Tuesday night, the Rays’ third straight shutout loss. The Cardinals have three consecutive shutouts for the first time since April 2013. St. Louis, with 13 shutouts this season, was coming off 5-0 victories over Toronto on Saturday and Sunday.

Tampa Bay has been shut out an AL-leading 10 times this season. The Rays, who have lost 14 of 15, have not scored a run in 28 innings. Wainwright (9-3) scattered seven hits over seven innings. Trevor Rosenthal got the final four outs, including a base-loaded pop fly by Matt Joyce in the eighth, for his 17th save.

Matt Holliday put the Cardinals up 1-0 with his fourth homer this season, a long drive to left center with two outs in the sixth off tough-luck loser Jake Odorizzi (2-7).

Roy Marble, all-time leading scorer in Hawkeye basketball history, accused of domestic abuse assault


June 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Former Hawkeye basketball player Roy Marble has been charged with domestic abuse assault. 47-year old Roy Marble lives in Cedar Rapids and the woman with whom he lives has accused him of trying to strangle her on Saturday. Marble has posted tweets on Twitter, saying it didn’t happen and asking people not to jump to conclusions. Marble, who grew up in Flint, Michigan, is the all-time leading scorer for the University of Iowa and he was drafted to play in the NBA. Marble was suspended in his rookie season back in 1990 for substance abuse. In 2009 Marble was stopped for speeding near Tipton and police found marijuana in his car.

Marble’s son, Devyn Marble, graduated from the University of Iowa in May and is taking part in pre-NBA draft workouts. Devyn Marble was raised by his mother and grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.

AMES, Iowa (AP) – Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg has promoted Charlie Henry to assistant coach, replacing Doc Sadler. Henry spent the past two seasons with the Cyclones as a graduate assistant and as the director of player development.

Henry previously worked as a graduate manager at Utah and as a video coordinator with the Indiana Pacers. Hoiberg says Henry is among the best young basketball minds he’s ever met.

Sioux City runners get workout, blast of color

June 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – More than 2,500 runners in Sioux City got a blast of color as well as a workout from a 5 kilometer race. The Sioux City Journal reports runners who ran in the charity race Sunday morning were blasted with colored cornstarch at a number of spots, leaving their skin and clothing streaked with different shades. The run was a fundraiser for the Boys Club of Sioux City.

Organization board member Jim Palmer says the organization hoped to raise up to $25,000 from the race. Runner Scott Andrew, of Norfolk, Nebraska, didn’t realize he’d be sprayed with colored cornstarch but didn’t mind, saying “I didn’t know what to expect, but it was fun.”
