A Baltimore Circuit Court judge ordered a police detective to do 25 push-ups yesterday as punishment for the state's failing to turn over evidence in a timely manner. A defense lawyer intervened to cut short the courtroom calisthenics. Following an order of Judge John N. Prevas, Detective Michael Baier took off his gun and badge and completed one push-up, defense lawyer Ronald I. Kurland said. "I said to the judge, `This really isn't necessary,'" Kurland said last night. "Judge Prevas said, `Officer, stand up. Mr. Kurland has granted you a reprieve."

The man charged with killing Baltimore police Officer Michael J. Cowdery Jr. in an ambush went on trial yesterday, with prosecutors portraying him as a "cold-blooded cop killer" and his lawyer contending that he was a victim of mistaken identity. Howard T. Whitworth is accused of gunning down Cowdery - who had been on the force for 4 1/2 years and was the son of a career Philadelphia police detective - while the officer and several of his colleagues were questioning two men outside a carryout restaurant in East Baltimore exactly one year ago. In his opening statement, Assistant State's Attorney Donald Giblin told the 12-member jury that on the night of the incident, Whitworth, 32, came out of nowhere and shot Cowdery, 31, in the leg. Everyone on the block scattered, Giblin said, but Whitworth walked over to Cowdery and shot him in the head as he lay disabled on the sidewalk.

In the extensive literature of physical passion, which ranges from Valentine jingles to autopsy reports, "Love Crimes" will amount to but a footnote.A post-feminist thriller meant to be as sleek and alluring as it is provocative, it somehow never comes to much. The movie is all tease.It does move onto new ground, exploring that weird zone in the boy-girl thing that is more than seduction but possibly less than rape, when men don't beat but swindle reluctant women into having sex with them.

A veteran Baltimore police detective must resign from the department after being placed on probation for stealing groceries with her daughter, a cashier at the store where the theft occurred. Darlene Early, a Western District detective who joined the department in 1990, entered an Alford plea Wednesday to one count of theft under $1,000. An Alford plea allows a defendant to maintain innocence while admitting that prosecutors have enough evidence for a conviction. Her 18-year-old daughter, Ciara Anderson, pleaded guilty to the same charge, prosecutors said.
