Kelli Oliver and Talaya Kirkland, the daughter and granddaughter, respectively, of Baltimore County Council member Kenneth N. Oliver, walked free from a Catonsville courtroom Wednesday after a judge determined that they had acted reasonably in resisting what they viewed as an illegal arrest. Oliver, 40, had been charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after a traffic stop in September for a burned-out tail light. Kirkland, 23, was charged with hindering and disorderly conduct.

The Ravens insist they had not seen the video taken by an Atlantic City casino elevator security camera showing Ray Rice knock out his then-fiancée, now wife, Janay Palmer, until it was posted Monday morning by the website tmz.com. Ditto the National Football League. Thus, we are expected to believe, these two organizations were just as shocked and appalled as the general public at the sight of the 206-pound running back punching Ms. Palmer with his left fist so forcefully that it knocked her off her feet, into the handrail at the side of the elevator they were riding, and then to the floor.

Former Catonsville doctor William Dando will not face trial for sexual assault allegations after agreeing never to practice medicine in Maryland again. Allegany County prosecutors dropped charges against him Tuesday, citing two factors — the "he said, she said" nature of the case and his decision to surrender his medical license. Dando had been scheduled to stand trial Wednesday in an incident in which a 41-year-old patient said he touched her genitals while treating her for an ear infection at an urgent-care center near Cumberland.

Downey had been placed on "home teaching" following his arrest. Downey had been the starting quarterback on the football team.

An Anne Arundel County judge heard closing arguments Wednesday in the case against a Howard County police officer charged with assault in connection with a June 2013 wrong-way collision in Anne Arundel that injured a family of four.

After an extra-innings doubleheader that went until almost 1 a.m, coffeemakers around the city are probably deep into their second pot this morning. While you're waiting for the first few cups to kick in, here's a summary of the morning's local sports headlines from blogger Jon Meoli. Worth the wait - The Orioles had what amounted to an early All-Star break with a scheduled off-day and two postponements, but more than made up for the lack of action in yesterday's doubleheader . Four pitchers - Ryan Webb, Darren O'Day, Brian Matusz, and Tommy Hunter - pulled double-duty in relief, and after the game, the Orioles optioned Evan Meek to Triple-A Norfolk to make room for some bullpen reinforcements.

— Ravens running back Ray Rice rejected a plea offer Thursday that would spare him jail time on charges that he assaulted his then-fiancee, and instead asked the court to put him in a program under which he could eventually clear his record. With his status in the NFL still undetermined, Rice made his first court appearance since being charged by an Atlantic County grand jury with one count of third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of knocking Janay Palmer unconscious during an altercation in the Revel Casino in February, an incident that authorities say was caught on video by a security camera.
