When Maryland Transportation Authority police charged Olympian Michael Phelps with driving under the influence last week, they had two choices about what to do next: They could release him to a friend or family member, or take him to jail. In Phelps' case, they chose the first option. After the swimmer flunked roadside sobriety tests, according to court documents, officers took him back to a police station. After he took a Breathalyzer test that registered a 0.14 percent blood alcohol level, Phelps signed some paperwork and was released to a "responsible adult," police have said.

A lawyer for the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network told a judge the network's cash reserves would be nearly eliminated and its operating margin dangerously thin if a June 30 decision by a league committee is allowed to stand, according to court documents. Documents — including affidavits, memorandums, transcripts and exhibits — describe from MASN's perspective a worst-case scenario in the television rights fee case pending before a New York judge. MASN has asked the judge to extend a temporary restraining order issued Aug. 7 blocking the panel's decision from being enforced.

After bruising negotiations and the threat of litigation by the Baltimore team, baseball reached an agreement with the Orioles giving the club control of the regional television network it shares with the Nationals as compensation for the loss of territory.
