Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and deactivated from all team activities.
Dwyer was taken into custody on Wednesday, Sept. 17 and charged with one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, and one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency. He was able to pay the $25,000 cash bond early Thursday morning and ordered to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and not have any contact with the victims, a 27-year-old female and an 18-month-old child.
The NFL star admitted to incidents that took place at his home in July. Neighbors reportedly heard a fight and called the police who arrived at the home but did not make any arrest because Dwyer hid in the bathroom and the woman involved in the incident said no one else was home. more >>

Nick Jonas is no longer wearing his promise ring, which symbolized his pledge to remain abstinent until marriage, but said that he still has a strong relationship with God and love for the church.
"This is a real growth in me and that's not something I'm doing anymore," Jonas told HuffPost Live when asked about why he was no longer wearing the ring. "But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life, and that's all that matters."
Jonas recently decided to establish himself as a solo artist and has a new song "Jealous" out as well as a role on the new DirecTV series "Kingdom." The role featured an intimate scene that left some feeling uncomfortable given Jonas' views on sex before marriage. However, he distanced himself from the emotional involvement and saw it merely as a role to fulfill. more >>
The State of Texas is set to execute a woman charged with murdering her girlfriend's son 10 years ago.
Lisa Ann Coleman was charged with capital murder for the death of nine-year-old Davontae Williams, who was found beaten bound, with more than 250 scars on his emaciated body in 2004. Coleman lived with her girlfriend, Marcella Williams, at the time and she took a plea deal in order to avoid the death penalty; she is now serving a life sentence. Coleman did not take a plea, and prosecutors brought the death penalty against her, hoping to achieve some justice for Davontae.
"Davontae died of malnutrition, a slow and cruel process," assistant Tarrant County district attorney told CBS News. "There was not an inch of his body that had not been bruised or scarred or injured. The jury assessed the appropriate punishment. Court testimony during Coleman's trial showed that she had a leading parental role and was the decision-maker on how Davontae should be treated." more >>

NFL star Adrian Peterson has been indefinitely banned from the game and attending or participating in any Vikings games; Peterson has also lost endorsements from several sponsors.
The Vikings originally allowed Peterson to participate in games and practices while his child abuse case in Texas continued. However, the team came under intense scrutiny for that decision by fans and sponsors, who threatened to pull support for the entire franchise if Peterson was allowed to continue playing. Now, though, the Vikings have changed their minds and decided to bench Peterson indefinitely while the case continues.
"While we were trying to make a balanced decision yesterday, after further reflection we have concluded that this resolution is best for the Vikings and Adrian," Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf said in a statement. "We want to be clear: we have a strong stance regarding the protection and welfare of children, and we want to be sure we get this right. At the same time we want to express our support for Adrian and acknowledge his seven-plus years of outstanding commitment to this organization and this community." more >>
