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.

Maryland football player Wes Brown's car has been linked to a shooting in Baltimore, a city police detective says in a document that provides new details about the running back's arrest last week. The probable cause statement, filed in District Court here, says that Baltimore police detective Bradley Hood “stated that [Brown's vehicle] was the vehicle that was involved in the shooting.” Brown, one of the team's top running backs as a freshman, was charged last week with second-degree assault on a Baltimore police detective who hoped to question him as a “person of interest” in the non-fatal shooting investigation from last month.
