Ex-star linebacker Taylor pleads not guilty in rape case

Posted: 03:05 PM ET



(CNN) - Hall of Fame football linebacker Lawrence Taylor pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges that he raped a 16-year-old girl in Rockland County, New York, a court official told CNN.

The former New York Giants star was arraigned Tuesday before Rockland County Judge William K. Nelson.

Taylor has been charged with third-degree rape for allegedly engaging in sexual intercourse with someone younger than 17 and third-degree patronization for allegedly paying the underage victim $300 to have sex.

Taylor is free on $75,000 bail.

Taylor, 51, was arrested in a Ramapo, New York, Holiday Inn room on May 6, a few hours after the alleged rape took place, authorities said at the time. Ramapo is about 30 miles northwest of New York City.

Ramapo Town Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence and Police Chief Peter Brower told reporters after the incident that the alleged victim was a runaway from the Bronx and had been brought to Ramapo by a pimp.

The girl texted an uncle after she returned to New York City the next day, and the uncle notified the New York City police, prompting the arrest of Taylor and the alleged pimp, St. Lawrence said.

Sean Peyton: Move Where?

Posted: 04:10 PM ET

Below is an excerpt from New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton from his new book "Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life", which just hit the New York Times bestseller list this week!

All the blue tarps.

That’s what I saw first as the American Airlines flight from Dallas prepared to land at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans. On the roofs of many of the houses—what was left of them—were these bright blue plastic tarps. They seemed to be covering everything. When I got off the plane, the airport was eerily quiet, almost empty, motionless. It was different from any airport I’d ever seen. You know what it felt like? It felt like they had only one flight a day here, the one I’d just gotten off of. The airport was whatever the opposite of bustling is.

Mickey Loomis, the Saints’ general manager, was there to meet me. It was just a ten-minute ride from the airport to the team offices and practice facility on Airline Drive. But as we rode in Mickey’s car, the blocks we passed didn’t look much busier than the airport. This was early January 2006, four months after Katrina. The floodwaters had finally receded. People were trickling back. But most of the houses still looked empty. The stores and the restaurants were hit-and-miss. Cars were still up on people’s lawns. Everything just seemed very still. The grass and the weeds were growing. There were trailers here and there. But you certainly didn’t hear a lot of construction noise.

As Mickey and I pulled into the parking lot, I glanced at my cell phone for any sign of a text message or a voice mail from 920, the area code for Green Bay, Wisconsin.


It wasn’t like I hadn’t heard about Katrina. I’d seen the pictures on television and read the newspaper accounts. I knew about the people on the rooftops and the families in the Superdome. I knew FEMA had stumbled. I knew about the Lower Ninth Ward. I knew the failure of the levees was worse than the storm. But all that media coverage had still failed to prepare me for this: the immensity of the devastation and so much quiet. When I arrived from Dallas for my official Saints interview, New Orleans looked like a third-world country with most of the people gone.

Queen Latifah talks about 'Just Wright' and growing up a Nets fan ‎

Posted: 04:25 PM ET


Via The Star-Ledger

Queen Latifah is a Renaissance woman in the truest sense. In addition to being a Grammy-winning recording artist and an Oscar-nominated actress, she’s a pitchwoman, an author, a businesswoman and a philanthropist. It’s mind-boggling how many titles that one can tack on besides, of course, Queen.

Once upon a time, she was also a B-baller. When she was Dana Elaine Owens, she played a little basketball on the Irvington High School team. Born in Newark in 1970 to Rita, a teacher at Irvington High, and Lancelot Sr., a police officer, Latifah spent her formative years in Newark and East Orange.

As we know, she did not pursue a career in basketball.

Through her acquaintance with D.J. Mark the 45 King, she met MTV host Fab Five Freddy, landed a deal at Tommy Boy Records and released her first album “All Hail the Queen” in 1989 when she was just 19.

Latifah remains a loyal New Jersey Nets fan to this day, as evident in this spring’s “Just Wright.” In the film, she plays physical therapist Leslie Wright, whose love interest is Scott McKnight (played by rapper Common), an all-star for the Nets.

LeBron James will play for the Miami Heat

Posted: 12:26 PM ET

Click here to take our poll: Are you happy with Lebron James’ decision to play for the Miami Heat?

The morning after NBA superstar LeBron James spurned the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat, the Heat announced it has sold out its "currently available" season ticket inventory.

After "extremely brisk" sales over the past couple of weeks, sales peaked "in a new intensity the last couple of days," Heat President of Business Operations Eric Woolworth said in a press release.

Since Wednesday, James and his fellow U.S. Olympian and perennial NBA all-star Chris Bosh have committed to leaving their old teams to join the Heat and its star, Dwyane Wade.

Wade led the Heat to the 2006 NBA championship and has agreed to re-sign with Miami and Bosh was a standout with the Toronto Raptors.

"We're going to be a really good team," James said.

James, who joined the Cavaliers straight out of high school and played forward for the team for his entire career, announced his decision during a much-ballyhooed ESPN special Thursday entitled "The Decision."

The superstar free agent said a conversation with his mother Thursday morning sealed the deal.

"I think I decided this morning," James said. "Then I talked with my mom. Once I had that conversation with her I think I was set."
