Warren A. Brown says he's innocent. He never wanted his wife to give the world the finger in an ad for his law practice. Maybe he was distracted by the cigar she was holding. Or her sexy get-up. Or her Sharon Stone-y pose. But the flamboyant Baltimore criminal defense attorney claims he didn't even notice the placement of his fifth wife's third digit until after he'd picked out the picture for the ad. "I was looking at these little proofs here," he says. "When they blew it up, I said, `It looks like you're giving somebody the bird here!

After 13 years of experience in Maryland real estate, David Orso decided to use his skills to better equip those entering the housing market by writing a book. That this effort would also become a way to pay tribute to his wife was a heartbreaking coincidence.

Matt Wieters  and his wife, Maria, had their first child, a boy, this morning at 5:11. Maverick Luther Wieters was 8 pounds, 2 ounces. He cries from both sides of the crib. No word on how long Wieters will be away from the team - he can go on paternity leave for a few days - but knowing Matt it won't be long. Wieters' mom and dad were in town this week and on Wednesday I joked with his dad about what he was more excited about -- the pending birth of his grandson or the Orioles in a pennant race.

McCrary withdrew her petition Monday for permanent protection from her husband, who she had alleged was violent, threatening and abusive. In hurried negotiations during a break in the proceedings in Baltimore County Circuit Court, lawyers for Mary Haley McCrary and the ex-defensive end agreed that the case would be dismissed as long as their clients vowed to have no contact with each other except to deal with logistical matters concerning the care of their 6-year-old daughter.

Susan Reimer 's commentary on Ray Rice and his wife Janay was informative and balanced regarding the domestic violence video that surfaced recently ( "Janay Rice stands by her man," Sept. 10). I agree that it is not productive to take an abuser's employment and status away. Mr. Rice is attending counseling, which he definitely needs. Hopefully, Janay Rice is doing so as well. Perhaps the NFL needs to do what the Catholic Church has done in cases where serious crimes are committed by those they employ: Let state authorities adjudicate the matter while providing all relevant evidence and assistance.

Those events followed a graphic video surfacing in which Rice punched his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, whom he later married and now has his last name.

The Baltimore Sun has verified that the following unabridged message from her official Instagram account is from Janay Rice and was intended to be released publicly: "I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote.
