The Cincinnati Bengals scrapped plans to have security guards give pat-downs to fans attending today's game against the Houston Texans when local officials refused to foot the bill. The team, which had hired a private security firm to conduct the searches at entrances to Paul Brown Stadium, announced Wednesday that it would follow an NFL mandate to perform the searches. But the Bengals pulled back Friday when Hamilton County commissioners complained that the team billed taxpayers $60,000 for the additional security.

A U.S. District Court judge on Wednesday upheld many of the claims in Terps guard Dez Wells' lawsuit against Xavier, which expelled him in 2012 after the then-Musketeers freshman star was accused of sexual assault. Judge Arthur Spiegel, according to media reports, dismissed a request by Wells to explore the decision of the school's conduct board to expel him, saying the statute of limitations had passed. He also threw out specific charges against the university president, the Rev. Michael Graham.

Maryland basketball player Dez Wells is filing suit against Xavier, claiming he was wrongfully dismissed by the school after being accused of sexual assault by a student during his freshman year in 2012. Wells was never criminally charged - a prosecutor said there was no basis for action - but was expelled by the university. Now Wells, who transferred to Maryland before last season and immediately became a starter, is legally challenging the procedure that Xavier used to dismiss him. “In July 2012, Wells was falsely accused of sexual assault,” according to a copy of the suit.

It's hard to fathom what it must have been like for Dez Wells to emerge from beneath the weight of public suspicion and step into a sold-out basketball arena again and hear cheers and balls bouncing and bands playing. Those who know the Maryland player's story - the infamous brawl during his freshman year at Xavier, the sexual assault allegation rejected by a prosecutor - understand why Wells seemed overcome as the sophomore transfer was introduced for the Terps ' season-opening game against Kentucky, leaning in and hugging his coach, Mark Turgeon.
