A two-time former state high school wrestling champion is scheduled to go on trial Monday in Baltimore on two assault cases from 2009 and 2010. Depending on the outcome, Patrick Downey III, an 18-year-old from Linthicum Heights, could resurrect his promising athletic career on the college level — or go to jail. Downey's attorney, Warren Brown, said last week that he hopes to clear his client of the first- and second-degree charges and that Downey will not accept a plea deal. If convicted, Downey could receive up to 25 years in prison for first-degree assault and up to 10 years for second-degree assault.

Patrick Downey III returned to North County High School in Glen Burnie Tuesday, days after prosecutors in Anne Arundel County dropped charges against the two-time former state wrestling champion. The decision Monday by school and county administrators to reinstate Downey came after the State's Attorney decided not to pursue charges of second-degree assault, robbery and theft stemming from an incident last September. Downey had been placed on "home teaching" following his arrest. Downey had been the starting quarterback on the football team.

I received letter recently from a woman angered when I noted, more cynically than sympathetically, Kelsey Grammer's recent post-rehab appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." She was upset that I didn't support Grammer's brave attempts to conquer his substance-abuse problems publicly. My problem is that these "mea culpa" TV appearances always occur during ratings sweeps months, allowing TV to use, if not abuse, the former users and abusers. I mention all this because of tonight's latest sweeps-month example: Robert Downey Jr., making his first post-rehab appearance, as guest host of "Saturday Night Live."

CLEVELAND - On to Albuquerque. The hard way. Forward Mike Gansey single-handedly put West Virginia into the lead four times in overtime last night. And every time Wake Forest had a response, mostly from star guard Chris Paul. When Gansey, who finished with 29 points, hit a layup, a three-pointer and two free throws in the first 95 seconds of the second overtime, it was too much for the Demon Deacons (27-6) to overcome as the Mountaineers (23-10) finally prevailed, 111-105, at Cleveland State's Wolstein Center.

Charges against a former two-time high school state wrestling champion were dropped Friday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court because of what prosecutors called inconsistencies in the victim's statement. The charges — second-degree assault, robbery, reckless endangerment and theft — stemmed from an incident in September in which Patrick Downey III of Glen Burnie and two others were accused by a fellow North County High School student of not paying for a small bag of marijuana and then driving away while the 16-year-old victim was attempting to get back in the car. In asking Judge Paul A. Hackner to drop the charges against Downey, Assistant State's Attorney Brooke McKay said the 16-year-old told "numerous versions" of his story to police and prosecutors.

Following an often contentious 90-minute session, a four-person panel voted to uphold an earlier ruling by the Florida High School Athletic Association to deny the former North County student's eligibility, meaning he will not be able to participate in wrestling there. William Grant, an attorney hired by Downey's father, immediately asked to have the FHSAA's board of directors meet on the issue within 48 hours.

Mistrust of government, turmoil in Russia, corporate espionage — all the elements of our daily headlines are given a cheeky spin in the new adventures of our favorite shellhead.

Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, a munitions tycoon who learns the dangers of arms proliferation first-hand when he's kidnapped in Afghanistan and sees that his weapons are best-sellers in enemy territory. His insurgent captors order him to create a copy of his devastating Jericho missile system.
