"Caught" abounds in piscine imagery, but all this fishy business cannot hide its true identity as a strange cross-breeding of "On the Waterfront" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice."At the start of this resolutely gritty film by Robert M. Young, a scuzzy drifter named Nick flees from the cops and slips into a fish shop run by kindly, needy Betty and gruff, salt-of-the-earth Joe. They take Nick in, and he becomes trapped in a net cast by Betty, Joe's much younger, bombshell wife.Betty (the stunning Maria Conchita Alonso)

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

There's a pretty solid chance that the Ravens' scouting report on the Indianapolis Colts' offense includes a few bolded reminders about how dangerous wide receiver T.Y. Hilton can be as a deep threat. Hilton is one of the fastest wide receivers in the NFL, having run the 40-yard dash in 4.34 seconds. “We just can't let him take the top off the defense,” Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. Hilton emerged last season as a pivotal figure in the Colts' offense, catching a career-high 82 passes for 1,083 yards and six touchdowns.

George Hemlet started catching fish with a cane pole when he was just a little lad. That itty-bitty pole wouldn't have helped him much on Wednesday, when the 70-year-old retired machinist from Bel Air caught a Spanish mackerel that broke the state record. Hemlet and six friends were chumming for rockfish aboard Capt. Frank Carver's Loosen Up, out of Deale. It took them just 45 minutes to reach their limit, so they turned their attention to other targets. They landed 50 blues and 39 Spanish mackerel and were idling by Buoy 83 when lightning struck.

A fisherman has caught another northern snakehead fish in the Potomac River in Virginia, state officials announced yesterday, marking the fourth time this spring that the voracious Asian invader has turned up in the river. A commercial waterman caught the 14 1/2 -inch, 1-pound fish near Fort Belvoir, in the same eight-mile stretch where the other snakeheads were caught. A Maryland Department of Natural Resources biologist confirmed that it was a female northern snakehead and was about 2 years old. A multiagency effort is under way to determine if the fish has established itself here.

At least 20 Baltimore police officers have been caught this year sleeping and congregating while on duty - and two of them have been fired - after the department's brass launched a crackdown. Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris said yesterday that he ordered the effort against the infractions because officers' napping on duty is one of his "pet peeves." "It's a very dangerous thing," Norris said at his monthly news conference. "Police officers are risking their lives in the middle of night.

A new anti-violence program led Baltimore police to raid the home of a convicted drug dealer they had hoped to reform, and to nearly $4 million worth of drugs and cash, a significant seizure for the department. Standing over a table displaying $825,000 cash and nearly 12 kilograms of heroin, police officials said Shawn Antonio Hearn, a 41-year-old with a prior federal drug conviction, had been given a chance through the Operation Ceasefire program. He didn't take that chance, they said.

Orioles slugger Chris Davis, suspended recently for using a banned stimulant, was caught amid a leaguewide crackdown that began three years ago as players' use of Adderall spiked, according to sports physicians and other experts. Amphetamines — a drug with addictive properties — have long been a part of the game's darker side. Even the home run record-setting Hank Aaron acknowledged using the stimulants, once commonly known as "greenies. " The action by Major League Baseball sheds light on growing concern about amphetamines — a type of drug that has become increasingly potent.

A South Baltimore man filed a lawsuit Monday against a city police officer, accusing the officer of punching him repeatedly during a June arrest — an incident that was captured on video. Kollin Truss and Officer Vincent E. Cosom argued a few moments before the arrest, but a woman with Truss had separated the pair, and Truss was apparently walking away from police when they decided to make an arrest. "This attack was completely unprovoked and served no legitimate law enforcement purpose," Truss' attorneys, Ivan J. Bates and Tony N. Garcia, wrote in a complaint filed in Baltimore Circuit Court.

After dragging his golf clubs and luggage off a shuttle bus in long-term parking near BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport on Wednesday afternoon, Leroy Donahue took several quick strides over to his shiny black Tesla Model S and peered through the window. The 77-year-old Arlington, Va., resident then circled his pricey high-tech electric car and, opening the hatchback, watched as water poured out. "Yep," he said, nodding to his travel buddy, Alain Labeau of Potomac. Just as he had suspected, his car - just 14 months old and still parked where he left it before heading off on a golf trip to Maine - had not been spared by the record-setting rainfall that dropped more than 6 inches on the airport and more than 10 inches on other parts of the region on Tuesday, leaving vehicles flooded in lots and on roadways all over.

The couple walked into Kent Island Jewelry first. She wore dark sunglasses, scrubs and a stethoscope draped around her neck. He was well-dressed and meticulously groomed. Trailing them was another man, in work clothes. He was looking for something special for his mother's wedding gift. "He ran me all over the store," shop owner Patricia Clowd recalled. Clowd and police now say the hunt for the perfect gift was a distraction, providing the dapper Robert Weathers an opportunity to grab a tray of diamonds from an unlocked case.

COLLEGE PARK -- When Frank Wycheck arrived at Maryland from Philadelphia a little more than a year ago, he had "fullback" written all over him."I thought I'd do a lot of blocking," Wycheck said.He was wrong. He does precious little blocking. But he does catch a lot of passes.He has caught so many, in fact, that he's tied for sixth in the country with an average of seven a game. With a total of 49, he needs only three more Saturday at Duke to overtake Greg Hill and break the school single-season record.
