In Texas, Wingate charged, makes bond
Former Dunbar High school and Georgetown University basketball star David Wingate was charged with one count of sexual assault and released on $2,000 bond, authorities in San Antonio, said yesterday. Wingate, a former guard with the San Antonio Spurs, surrendered to the Bexar County Sheriff's Office yesterday morning.
Wingate's action ended the sheriff's job of trying to extradite him from Maryland, where he is also accused of sexual assault. Wingate was charged in September with the alleged rape of a 17-year-old girl in Ellicott City, Md., and three days later a 21-year-old woman in San Antonio filed suit for an alleged rape that happened in June. Wingate was indicted by a grand jury in each case.
Reporter Jane O'Hara has filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission alleging sexual discrimination after she and other reporters -- both men and women -- were banned from the Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers' locker room.
The Blue Bombers first prevented a female reporter from entering the dressing room Oct. 5, but since then, the team has banned male and female reporters, both at home and on the road.
Final details for the fight were completed for Evander Holyfield's heavyweight title defense against former champion George Foreman at Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, N.J., on April 19, according to promoter Dan Duva. The World Boxing Council has threatened to strip Holyfield of his title if he didn't fight Mike Tyson first, but WBC president Jose Sulaiman said that the WBC could submit the Holyfield-Foreman request to its executive council should Tyson approve. Holyfield had stepped aside to permit Tyson's voluntary defense against Buster Douglas.
