Ex-NFLer Stanley Wilson Jr. died the same way several other men have in LA this year

The family of former Detroit Lion Stanley Wilson, Jr. are alleging his death is the result of foul play

On Mar. 1, the Los Angeles Police Department Protective League — the local union — presented a proposal. The rank-and-file officers desire to limit the types of calls to which they provide a response. Two of those types of calls include mental health and welfare checks. On Wednesday, the Los Angeles City Council approved $1 million to create the Office of Unarmed Response and Safety. Maybe some lives will be saved in the future, but nothing was able to save former Detroit Lions defensive back Stanley Wilson Jr. who died in February 2023 while in police custody.

Wilson had been having mental issues for some time now, according to family attorney John Carpenter. In August 2022, Wilson had been arrested on a trespassing charge but was deemed incompetent to stand trial. Carpenter claims that Wilson had been showing signs of suffering from CTE.

Wilson’s first run-in with the law was in Portland in 2016. Wilson pleaded no contest to attempted first-degree burglary when he allegedly stripped naked and tried to climb into the window of an elderly man’s home and was shot. He also pleaded no contest to first-degree burglary for breaking into a home in that same neighborhood, that same day. Wilson allegedly poured a cocktail, stole a book, and then vacated the premises. The prosecutor in the case stated that Wilson pleaded no contest because he claimed that at the time of the incidents, he was “not quite there. Wilson was sentenced to 10 days in jail, time already served.

No official cause of death, but family alleges foul play

There has been no official cause of death issued yet for Wilson. His parents claim that there were “ligature marks” and fresh wounds on their son’s body. They are suing Los Angeles County for $45 million in damages. LA County spokesperson Jesus Ruiz did comment on the case when questioned by the Los Angeles Times.

“L.A. County offers its sincere condolences to Mr. Wilson and his family,” is all the comment that Ruiz provided. The family that he is referring to includes former Cincinnati Bengals running back Stanley Wilson Sr.

The new year began with three men allegedly suffering from mental health issues dying following altercations with LAPD. Takar Smith was shot to death by law enforcement on Jan. 2. His wife needed help on a restraining order violation. However, she did warn police that her husband was schizophrenic and had not been taking his medication. No mental health professionals were sent with police in response to that call.

On Jan. 3, Keenan Anderson and Oscar Sanchez lost their lives at the hands of law enforcement. Anderson was approached because of potential involvement in a hit-and-run accident. He first cooperated and then fled. Per the Associated Press, body camera footage shows one officer’s elbow into Anderson’s neck and a forearm into his chest. Anderson was tasered in that position and died less than five hours later.

Sanchez died after police were called to a scene in which he was accused of throwing metal objects at cars. Per Fox 11 LA, the police body camera footage begins when they find Sanchez near an abandoned building. He was holding a metal pipe and officers told him to relinquish it. He left and they chased after him. Very shortly after an officer exclaimed, “put that down!” Sanchez was shot with both lethal and non-lethal ammunition. He died later that day.

Few issues are more complicated than mental health. A finger-pointed starboard is a clear indication that it is broken. An MRI was taken of Edwin Diaz’s knee that determined he suffered a torn patellar tendon on Wednesday. The process for the repair of those injuries is standard. However, what rehab is necessary for a person’s brain? Also, how does a person with mental health problems maintain the cognizance to take every step? People don’t want to take medicine for a variety of ailments. What happens when that mindset is inside a person, with a mindset that is in serious need of medicinal treatment?

This a complicated issue that at face value Los Angeles appears to be making an effort to address. Tragically though, it’s too little too late for Smith, Anderson, Sanchez, and Wilson Jr. 

March Badness: Scandals defined the year in college hoops

This college basketball season was mired with off-the-court drama

In a year devoid of a dominant blue blood or player, college basketball stayed in the headlines for the worst reasons. Preseason No. 1 UNC whiffed on the season and missed the tournament entirely. Gonzaga is relying on a normal supply of veteran talent, but is less interesting to watch for casual fans without a one-and-done talent pulling them along.

Off the court, however, college basketball programs have been mired in drama left and right. From Alabama to Chris Beard, the bizarre chronicles of Coppin State to New Mexico State’s litany of scandals, these are the college basketball stories least likely to be mentioned during “One Shining Moment.” Yet, each one imparts lessons outside the basketball court if anyone dares to take the correct lesson away from these players and programs’ failures.

The arrest of Alabama basketball player Darius Miles (pictured) on capital murder charges related to the shooting death of 23-year-old Jamea Harris was the most shocking development of this college basketball season and it isn’t going away anytime soon. Following a 106-66 win over LSU, Miles, a forward for the Crimson Tide, and his childhood friend, Michael Lynn Davis, allegedly confronted Harris and her boyfriend on the street outside of a local bar after Harris reportedly refused to talk to him. Davis allegedly sprayed their Jeep with bullets, killing Harris. Miles was charged with aiding and abetting for supplying the gun. In a statement to ESPN, Davis’ attorney said: “We are going to vigorously defend this case and defend my client’s right to protect himself when someone points a gun at him and shoots him.” Miles’ attorney questioned the case being deemed as capital murder.

According to the victim’s mother, DeCarla Heard, Harris and her friend turned down the men’s advances. If that grotesque incident wasn’t enough for Alabama to hit a pause on the season, detectives disclosed details during a pretrial hearing linking Brandon Miller (pictured), a presumptive top-five pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, to the transportation of the weapon to the crime scene. Miller’s attorney has said Miller was unaware that Miles’ gun was in his backseat. Alabama basketball’s attempt to purge themselves of connection to Harris’ alleged killers dissipated once Miller’s involvement was made public.

Nate Oats’ insensitive remarks and Miller’s ill-advised continuation of a pat down during player introductions have destroyed any goodwill remaining towards this team outside of Tuscaloosa.

Chris Beard and his alma mater were a match made in heaven. Between the season tip-off and early January, the Texas Longhorns were stitched into the top 10 of almost every legitimate Top 25 poll. Beard was restoring their national relevance, and the Longhorns were on top of the world — until Beard was arrested on felony domestic violence charges in late December.

On Tuesday night, Coppin State basketball coach Juan Dixon was fired by the university. In his wake, he left behind a 48-128 record of misery in six seasons at the helm. However, the losing record was only the beginning. The final nail in Dixon’s coffin was a sordid affair involving a member of his staff, a former player, a catfish and a lawsuit.

According to a lawsuit filed in Baltimore City Circuit Court, during his first semester in the fall of 2018, Coppin State player Ibn Williams was catfished by a woman on social media who expressed romantic interest in the then-freshmen. According to the complaint filed by Williams’ attorney, in 2019, teammate Lucian Brownlee told Williams that he too had exchanged sexual content with Williams’ blackmailer. The complaint alleges that soon after, the “woman” threatened to release racy photos unless he had sex with Brownlee.

Image for article titled March Badness: Scandals defined the year in college hoops

The complaint claims that Williams refused, but in the fall, his blackmailer demanded he record them engaging in sexual acts with Brownlee. According to the suit, Williams (pictured) spent the entire 2018-19 basketball season trying to appease the woman to prevent this information from getting out. In 2020, the suit alleges that the woman renewed the blackmail demands, however, when Williams stopped replying, the info was released to members of the basketball team and the public. The suit alleges that at some point, Williams discovered that the woman in question was his former teammate, Brownlee, who had since joined Dixon’s staff as director of Player Development and Basketball Operations.

According to Williams’ complaint, the day after Brownlee made the material public, he met with Dixon at practice, where “Dixon admitted that Lucien [sic] Brownlee was mentally ill or otherwise emotionally imbalanced and that his history was known to the coach.” Williams’ attorney, Daniel “Donny” Epstein was able to build a case despite the anonymous blackmailer claiming to be a third party. “Our strong belief is that Lucian [himself] was the catfisher,” Epstein said. However, in an email to the Baltimore Banner, Coppin State’s director of communications, Robyne McCullough said the university will not comment on pending litigation.

New Mexico State double-dipped in scandals this year. Does anyone even remember when forward Mike Peake was lured to the New Mexico campus for a hookup that turned out to be retaliation for a brawl that occurred two months earlier at a football game between the two schools, and then shot and killed one of his assailants? Imagine fighting at a college football game between a team headed for a bowl game sponsored by a bowling alley and a 2-10 program. Don’t ask which is which. It’s irrelevant and that’s the point.

The shooting that rocked the basketball program occurred prior to a Nov. 19 matchup against UNM and UNSM. The harrowing shooting was even captured by surveillance. In it, Peake is seen being assaulted with a baseball bat, attempts to flee, and then fires back at 19-year-old Brandon Travis, who was also pulling out his Glock. Travis was struck by a bullet and died.

As the NMSU team bus left NMSU’s campus, police caught up with them seeking to interview Peake and recover the firearm leading to a tense encounter in which coaches declined to allow them to interview players without an attorney present.

The teen girl who aided in Peake’s attack was charged with aggravated battery and conspiracy while the other men were charged with aggravated battery. Peake was never charged, but was suspended indefinitely while the incident was under investigation. It was later revealed that three players arrived on the scene later on to assist Peake and his gun was handed over to authorities 12 hours later by an assistant coach. Investigators later served warrants at the NMSU basketball facility.

Unbelievably, this was muted by what happened later that season at New Mexico State.

You can get a whole Shonda Rhimes special out of head coach Greg Heiar’s first year in charge of New Mexico State’s basketball program. It would also be short-lived. Before the season began, assistant coach Edmond Pryor was arrested and charged with forgery (Pryor has claimed he’s innocent of the charges). Three months after the aforementioned shooting at UNM, New Mexico State was embroiled in another scandal that cost Heiar his job.

According to a police report, on Feb. 6 three unnamed players held another teammate down, “removed his clothing exposing his buttocks, began to slap his (buttocks),” and described how they also touched his scrotum. The incident prompted the player to come forward, but also was merely one of many sexual assaults involving physical and sexual touching that he had been subjected to in locker rooms and road trips since the school year began.

In response to the details of this ongoing hazing within the locker room, Heiar was fired for cause and the season was immediately canceled. It was a steep fall from grace for the Aggies’ program, whose previous head coach Chris Jans departed for Mississippi State after they toppled UConn in the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

Louisville’s first 2022-23 season began with some good news, as the NCAA declined to dole out a postseason ban for the Cardinals in relation to pay-for-play infractions dating back to 2017. Rick Pitino was fired after details of the bribery scheme involving an Adidas executive, Merl Code Jr, conspiring to pay $100,000 to five-star recruit Bruce Bowen’s family were revealed. However, the Independent Accountability Resolution Process ruled that Pitino was unaware of all the payments. The coach was also implicated by Merl Code in his memoir, Black Market: An Insider’s Journey Into the High-Stakes World of College Basketball” — Pitino continued to deny any knowledge of improper payments — but the accusations emerged outside the NCAA’s statute of limitations.

In effect, the NCAA’s dirty work has already been done for them. Louisville has been radioactive on the recruiting trail in recent years due to the lingering threat of a ban and this season the Cardinals endured a calamitous 4-28 season.

Conversely, Pitino is back in the NCAA Tournament and appears to be the frontrunner for the St. John’s vacancy.

This Michael Irvin situation just keeps getting stranger — go figure

NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin speaks on air during the NFL Network’s NFL GameDay Kickoff broadcast.

Last month, NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin was pulled from TV during Super Bowl week due to a misconduct allegation made against him. Since then, things have become a mess. The saga continued on Tuesday.

Below you will see a link to the security footage that was released on March 14, 2023. It appears to show Irvin having a conversation with the woman who brought forth the allegations.

The reason the video is so important is that Irvin previously filed a $100 million lawsuit against Marriott — where the incident took place — as he believes he’s being “railroaded” with false accusations that are ruining his career.

“Honestly, I’m a bit baffled with it all,” Irvin told the Dallas Morning News in February. “This all happened in a 45-second conversation in the lobby. When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby and I talked to somebody. I talked to this girl. I don’t know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds. We shook hands. Then, I left. … That’s all I know.”

According to reports, the allegations against Irvin go like this:

“At the start of the interaction, Marriott’s lawyers stated Irvin “stated that [the female hotel employee] was attractive and reached out to shake her hand, asked her name and introduced himself as ‘Michael.’” Moments later, Marriott alleged Irvin “reached out and touched the Victim’s arm during this conversation without her consent, causing her to step back, becoming visibly uncomfortable.”

“Irvin then asked the victim whether she knew anything about having a ‘big Black man inside of [her],’” the filing continued. “Taken aback by Irvin’s comments, the Victim responded that his comments were inappropriate, and she did not wish to discuss it further. Irvin then attempted to grab the Victim’s hand again and said he was ‘sorry if he brought up bad memories’ for her. The Victim pulled her hand away and tried to back away from Irvin as he continued to move towards her.”

Irvin has been passionately denying the allegations.

“This sickens me,” Irvin said. “This takes me back to a time where a white woman would accuse a Black man of something, and they’d drag him through the mud and hang him by a tree. … It just blows my mind that in 2023 we are still dragging and hanging, brothers.”

On Tuesday, Irvin dropped the $100 million lawsuit against Marriott in a Texas court, as his lawyers have announced another lawsuit over the alleged misconduct in an Arizona Court.

It’s beyond messy.

In 2018, Irvin was named in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against NFL Network, and also served a previous suspension by the company. In 2017, the Broward County (Florida) State Attorney’s Office chose not to pursue charges against Irvin after a sexual assault investigation. (He denied the allegations.) In 2011, a settlement was reached in a civil lawsuit that accused Irvin of sexual battery. And in 1997, a woman that then accused Irvin and former Cowboys teammate Erik Williams of rape in 1996 recanted her story and admitted she lied, according to the police.

Where Brandon Miller, Jalen Carter get drafted will speak volumes

Brandon Miller (l.) and Jalen Carter

Two high-profile SEC athletes were both revealed to be connected to deaths within a couple of weeks of each other.

There’s Alabama Crimson Tide’s men’s basketball star Brandon Miller, who projects as an early pick in the NBA Draft, and Georgia standout DT Jalen Carter, who has the potential to go No. 1 in the NFL Draft.

Miller was linked in court to the fatal shooting of Jamea Jonae Harris. Tuscaloosa Det. Branden Culpepper testified that Miller delivered the gun to his former teammate Darius Miles, who in turn handed the gun over to Michael Lynn Davis, who is not affiliated with the university.


According to testimony, Miller delivered the gun to Miles and was present when the shooting occurred. Miller’s attorney said the gun was in the back of his car and that he didn’t see it or handle it. He hasn’t been charged with a crime and Paula Whitley, the chief deputy district attorney in Tuscaloosa, told AL.com that “there’s nothing we could charge [Miller] with.”

“While Darius has been accused of being involved with this tragedy, he maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court,” Birmingham law firm Boles Holmes White LLC said in a statement on behalf of Miles.


Miles, who has since been dismissed from the Crimson Tide, and Davis were both indicted on capital murder charges Friday.


Miles’ attorney Mary Taylor released a statement:

“While we are not surprised by the indictment based on the reality that a person accused of a crime is not allowed to present any evidence to the Grand Jury, we are nonetheless disappointed that the Government presented this case to the Grand Jury as Capital Murder considering the evidence uncovered during our investigation and the obvious weaknesses in the Government’s case brought to light during the preliminary hearing.”


“We are not surprised with the indictment,” Davis’ attorney, John Robbins, told ESPN’s Elizabeth Merrill. “We were expecting it all along. We’re happy that the state moved quickly on this matter so we can get into court and get this case tried as quickly as we can before a jury. We are going to vigorously defend this case and defend my client’s right to protect himself when someone points a gun at him and shoots him.”

In a statement shared with The Tuscaloosa News, Robbins said “Michael is a good person from a good family, and he intends to vigorously defend himself against these charges.”


Carter’s brush with the law

One of Carter’s teammates, Devin Willock, and Chandler Lecroy, a Georgia football staff member, died in a car accident shortly after Georgia won the national championship.


Carter, 21, was charged with reckless driving and racing.

He released a statement on Twitter that read: “It is my intention to return to Athens to answer the misdemeanor charges against me and to make certain that the complete and accurate truth is presented. There is no question in my mind that when all of the facts are known that I will be fully exonerated of any criminal wrongdoing.”


Carter was booked at 11:33 p.m. and posted bail at 11:49 p.m. on March 1.


Will this affect each player’s draft stock?

I’ve seen Miller mocked from spots three to six in the upcoming NBA draft, and Carter was a contender for the first selection. If they end up being selected at these spots even after the news about them has come out, then can we as a society admit that the pre-draft interview process is complete nonsense?


Don’t say that you value a player’s character and need to have several interviews to know whether they’re the right choice, and then draft someone connected to a death. I’m not saying that these players are guilty of wrongdoing or that they don’t deserve to play professionally — the legal process is still playing out — but if that doesn’t give teams pause about drafting them then I’m not sure what will.

So many times athletes have had their draft stock tanked from what NFL teams arbitrarily labeled as “character issues” when they were undoubtedly less serious than what has transpired with these two. In 2016, many expected offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil to be a top-three selection, but a video of him smoking weed through a bong attached to a gas mask was Tweeted from his account 10 minutes before the draft in what Tunsil’s agent claimed was the result of his account being hacked. He was drafted 13th which, assuming he would’ve been drafted third had the video not been tweeted, cost him about $13 million dollars.


Whatever your opinion on smoking weed (something that will likely be legal everywhere in the U.S. before long) surely you have to admit smoking it isn’t as bad as anything that results in someone’s death.

A text exchange in which Tunsil asked the assistant athletic director at Ole Miss for payment that he could use for rent and pay his mother’s $305 electric bill. My God… How does this guy sleep at night?


Carter has ‘really good interview’ at NFL Combine

At this year’s NFL combine they reportedly held games of mini golf and darts to test their competitiveness. If someone’s draft stock falls because they didn’t care enough about mini golf but Carter’s stock doesn’t fall after being charged with a crime, then can we finally admit these interviews are nonsense?


NFL teams are allowed 45 18-minute formal interviews with prospects at the combine, which was recently reduced from 60. All in the effort to make sure that the players they draft are all upstanding citizens and the right fit for their team, as if someone’s warm personality is actually going to help their draft stock.

Jonathan Gannon, the new head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, who have the third pick, said that they had a “really good interview” with Carter. How good? Was it the best interview anyone’s ever had in any context? Because how else can you ignore his current legal issues?


Along with Lecroy, Carter was reportedly “operating their vehicles in a manner consistent with racing” before the crash.

“The evidence demonstrated that both vehicles switched between lanes, drove in the center turn lane, drove in opposite lanes of travel, overtook other motorists, and drove at high rates of speed, in an apparent attempt to outdistance each other,” the police statement said.


Carter denied racing to the officer, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In September of last year, Carter was pulled over for driving 89 mph where the speed limit was 45, which suggests a pattern of this behavior.


Body camera footage shows the officer that pulled him over telling him, “Your break is you’re not going to jail. That’s your break. Cause that would make all kinds of news right?” Carter was fined $1,013. That was a close one. He almost made the news.

As for Miller, during the pregame introduction against Arkansas, he chose to go forward with a “pat-down” entrance as he was announced to the crowd.


That was, at the very least, extremely tone-deaf.

I’m not saying that Miller and Carter necessarily deserve to be drafted lower than they would’ve been — there could be nuances to these situations that we’re just not seeing — but it feels like there’s a double standard. For most players, teams will try to find any reason to move them lower on their draft boards, but for the truly elite talents, they will excuse any behavior.

Shawn Kemp to be released, no charges filed [Updated]

Shawn Kemp was allegedly involved in a drive-by shooting in Washington

Updated: Prosecutors said that no immediate charges will be filed against Shawn Kemp following his arrest.

Video has emerged of former NBA All-Star Shawn Kemp’s involvement in an alleged drive-by shooting. The legendary power forward was arrested Wednesday evening in connection to the alleged crime, according to reports.

Tacoma (Wash.) police said shots were fired and one car fled the scene. A 53-year-old man — later confirmed to be Kemp — was booked.


While the investigation is still underway, sources close to the ex-Seattle Supersonic told Fox 13 Seattle’s David Rose Kemp was trying to retrieve property that was stolen from his car.


The sources said Kemp’s iPhone tracker led him to Tacoma where he allegedly confronted the vehicle, whose occupant fired shots. Kemp allegedly fired in self-defense, per the sources.


Updated: TMZ is reporting that a revolver was found outside a nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care. The outlet said its footage “shows Kemp driving around the parking lot and dumping something near a bush outside the car shop … and cops later found a weapon at the scene.”

TMZ previously reported that witnesses claim they heard gunshots prior to recording part of the incident on their phones. What remains unclear, according to the gossip site, is whether Kemp — who they said is seen on video aiming and shooting his weapon — was the only one to open fire.


Kemp was apprehended at the scene of the shooting.


Other run-ins with the law

This is not Kemp’s first run-in with the law, but his past offenses were nearly two decades ago and pale in comparison to this most recent arrest. In April 2005, he was arrested in Shoreline, Wash. Kemp was in a car in which police said they found marijuana, a small amount of cocaine, and a 9mm weapon that was registered to Kemp. He pled guilty to attempted possession of more than 40 grams of marijuana, was put on probation for a year, placed on home monitoring for less than a week, and paid a small fine.


In July 2006, he was arrested in Houston for having less than two ounces of marijuana in his car. He pled guilty to that misdemeanor as well.

These days Kemp is in the legal marijuana business. In 2020 he opened his first cannabis shop in Seattle, and in Feb. 2023 he opened a second one in the city.

NBA trainer Rob McClanaghan’s rape charges dropped

Image for article titled NBA trainer Rob McClanaghan's rape charges dropped

Suffolk County (Mass.) prosecutors dropped all charges against NBA trainer Rob McClanaghan, who was accused of drugging and raping a woman at a Boston hotel in November.

The office of Suffolk District Attorney Kevin R. Hayden said “they no longer believe they can prove the two charges filed against McClanaghan, rape and drugging someone for sexual intercourse, beyond a reasonable doubt.”

This is a complete 180 from how the prosecutors felt about the case in November. At the time Hayden believed there was significant evidence against McClanaghan.


“I applaud everyone from law enforcement [and] the people from my office who did an amazing job in putting this case together,” Hayden said after McClanaghan’s arraignment via The Boston Globe. “There’s a lot of video evidence in this case. There’s other physical evidence that comes to bear that makes us confident that we can prove this case, regardless of what the toxicology tells us. … We will do everything we can to hold this man accountable for the crimes he committed.”

The video evidence that Hayden spoke of in November was video footage from the hotel bar that allegedly showed McClanaghan sprinkling something in the woman’s drink, and also hallway footage of them both entering her hotel room.


The woman called the police and responding detectives noted bruising on her knees, ankles, hips, neck, arms, and back. Assistant District Attorney Erin Murphy said the woman showed detectives a photo that McClanaghan sent to her phone the next morning which “depicted a man performing sexual acts on a woman on a bed similar to the victim’s hotel bed.” Additionally, the victim said that her underwear was missing, and was found at McClanaghan’s home — along with other women’s underwear — after investigators executed a search warrant of his place, per Murphy.

Charges dropped

“Based on a review of all available evidence, including information that emerged after the defendant’s arrest, the Commonwealth has determined it cannot prove these charges beyond a reasonable doubt at trial,” the prosecutors wrote in the document.


McClanaghan’s attorney, Kelli Porges, argued that the video showed her client playfully pretending to put something in the drink while the alleged victim was watching him; the video from the hallway shows them both willingly walking into her hotel room; and that picture he sent was from an adult website.

Porges said the decision to drop the case shows that her client is innocent.

“Rob and his family are relieved that this nightmare is over and that he has been exonerated,” Porges said in a statement. “Rob has maintained his innocence from the very beginning of this case and now he has been vindicated.”


In 2022, a disturbing number of stories were being posted on social media about women being drugged and assaulted at Boston-area bars. It was happening so frequently that Boston police put out a warning for people to only accept drinks from bartenders and carefully monitor those drinks at all times.

Now less than four months after the prosecution talked chest out about a rock-solid case, it has shrunk away with a written statement about why charges were dropped.


All those Boston area women who posted about their assaults instead of going to the police, will now be further discouraged from doing so in light of the decision made by Suffolk County.
