A fight broke out inside Baltimore's Horseshoe Casino on the first weekend after its grand opening. A video of the incident shows security guards wearing yellow shirts rushing to break up the fight, which occurred in the line for Pie-Zetta, a pizza restaurant, around 3 a.m. Saturday. "Basically, somebody said something ... to one person and they took it the wrong way," said Kevin Forrest, who witnessed the fight. He said a woman sprayed mace before about 20 security guards stopped the fight and escorted people out of the casino.

By the time police arrived at the Maryland Live casino parking garage, Mary McGinnis had been sitting in the passenger seat of the red Ford pickup truck for about five hours, waiting as her son played blackjack inside. The 98-year-old woman, who uses a wheelchair to get around, appeared to be confused about where she was but not physically harmed. Returning to the garage after police called him, Dwight R. McGinnis, her 67-year-old son, was arrested and charged with abuse or neglect of a vulnerable adult, a misdemeanor, according to the police report.

Anne Arundel County police arrested a Bowie man Monday in connection with the robbery of one woman and attempted robbery of another at Maryland Live Casino on Sunday. Police said Paul Johann Morin, 32, was charged with armed robbery, robbery, second-degree assault and other charges. Police say he tried to take a 71-year-old woman's purse at knifepoint as she got into an elevator, but was unsuccessful. Later, another woman, 35, was sitting in her car in the parking garage at the casino, at 7002 Arundel Mills Circle in Hanover, when, police say, the suspect opened her car door and stole an unknown amount of money at knifepoint.

Ravens running back Ray Rice has been charged with aggravated assault in the February incident in which he is accused of knocking his fiancee unconscious in an Atlantic City casino elevator, a more serious charge than he originally faced. Rice, 27, initially faced a charge of simple assault for striking Janay Palmer in the Revel Casino, an incident that authorities say was caught on tape. Prosecutors in Atlantic County, N.J., reviewed the case for several weeks before presenting it to a grand jury, which handed up the indictment, officials said.

Around the clock, teams watch surveillance footage from more than 1,000 cameras covering nearly every inch of the 2 million-square-foot Maryland Live casino, which includes restaurants, a music venue and a 5,000-space parking garage. Two hundred security officers keep watch over gamblers and escort big winners to their cars. Off-duty police boost security, especially on the busiest days when more than 40,000 people pass through the casino's doors. And local police officers patrol the area around the casino, keeping in radio contact with casino security.

Two and a Half Men, an updated version of The Odd Couple with a 10-year-old kid added to the household, is one of the few new sitcoms that Madison Avenue is calling a hit. But don't get too excited by that. Those predictions by advertising agency analysts are based more on when the show airs, (9:30 Mondays on CBS after Everybody Loves Raymond), than the quality of the program. Not that Two and a Half Men is a stinker. In fact, compared to a truly empty-headed sitcom like The Mullets on UPN, it's Noel Coward meets Mel Brooks.

For the second time in three days, Anne Arundel County police say a child was left alone in a cold vehicle at the Arundel Mills complex in Hanover. Police say a man left his 6-year-old grandson in the mall parking lot near Best Buy on Thursday as snow fell throughout the area. "This is a snow-covered car. This is a cold car. This is 34 degrees with a snowstorm at that point. It was only getting colder," said police spokesman Lt. T.J. Smith. The incident followed another case Tuesday in which a police say a Baltimore woman was arrested after she left her 4-year-old daughter alone in an SUV for 81/2 hours while she was inside Maryland Live casino at Arundel Mills.
