Justin Bieber: High on Weed, Pills at Time of Miami Arrest
The Hollywood Gossip - about 3 years
Justin Bieber was high on marijuana and prescription medication when he was arrested this month. When he was arrested this month in Miami, we should say. We now need to make a distinction because Bieber was also arrested yesterday in Canada. According to toxicology results obtained by TMZ, the singer had weed and Alprazolam in his system when police pulled him over for drag racing last Thursday night. The latter is a key ingredient of Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug. Justin Bieber Arrest Footage The report also showed Justin tested negative for cocaine, opiates and meth. Meanwhile, according to the official report, officers on the scene say Bieber admitted he had been "smoking all night at the studio" when pressed. He also acted "excited, talkative, insulting [and] cocky" as the incident wore on, initially agreeing to a breathalyzer, for example, but then giving officers a hard time when they tried to administer it. The 19-year old was out of it and co ...

Seahawks’ Baldwin takes ‘pedestrian’ route to new heights
Houston Chronicle - about 3 years
By Kevin Duffy The News-Times NEWARK, N.J. — Before the cameras went on, Doug Baldwin flipped his off. It’s a little silver handheld device that Baldwin has been carrying all week. He normally uses it to film his question-and-answer YouTube segment, “The Fresh Files,” quite popular among Seattle fans. At Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day, he quickly scanned the crowd with the camera, capturing the grandeur and pure absurdity of it all, before tapping the tiny screen shut. “I’m going to try and document as much as I can and just enjoy the moment,” Baldwin said. “I do (the editing) myself, so I’m probably going to put together something for my YouTube channel. But more so, this is personal for me to look back when I’m older so I can remember this moment.” Forever motivated It always seems personal for the 5-10, 189-pound Baldwin, undrafted out of Stanford, where he was roommates for one year with Richard Sherman. Unquestionably one of the game’s top corners, Sherman was undervalu ...

Dolphins Bullying Investigation Puts GM, Coaching Jobs In Jeopardy
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Last month, Richie Incognito said severe repercussions would be warranted if the Miami Dolphins kept allowing sacks at such an alarming rate. "Everybody should be fired," he said. Nobody in Miami is talking about sacks anymore. Firings remain a distinct possibility for very different reasons. The Dolphins harassment scandal is threatening the season and job security, leaving the future of coach Joe Philbin, his assistants and general manager Jeff Ireland in doubt. Tackle Jonathan Martin alleges he was harassed daily by teammates, including Incognito, who has been suspended. While Martin is scheduled to meet with an NFL special investigator late this week, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has formed two committees to study the team's locker room culture. "Changes need to be made," Ross said at a news conference Monday. "We need to examine everything internally." Someone in the organization will likely be designated the primary culprit for the scandal, and Ireland' ...
