    We need a thread for all the wayward athletes of the world. Forget about past convictions and convicts...let's keep it somewhat up-to-date.

    First up: former NBA star Jayson Williams.

    Williams to prison for at least 18 months

    Poor Jayson - I hate to see a man's life fall apart in a relatively short-period of time. I also hate to see someone die and it's good to see him held accountable.

    I'd rather keep it relevant to today's rather than dig up old news - but I'm not the forum police either.

    She was nuts - and I guess she was also arrested for threatening Dick. He gets nailed for poor judgement.

    Arenas pleaded guilty. He'll be sentenced to something between probation and 6 months.

    He's getting off easy - I'm glad this was discovered before something worst occurred.

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jose Offerman's career as a baseball manager was over Monday, at least in the Dominican Winter Baseball League.

    The league suspended Offerman, interim manager of the Licey Tigers, for life after an incident Saturday in which he tried to hit American umpire Daniel Rayburn in the face. Offerman was arguing a batter's strike count in a playoff game against the Ciba Giants at Quisqueya Stadium in the Dominican Republic.

    Because of the incident, Rayburn and three other American umpires working in the Dominican league resigned and left the country, forcing the league to use native umpires in the league's finals that start Monday between Cibao and the Escogido Lions.

    The umpires, Rayburn, Jayson Bradley, Justin Vogel and Barry Larson, said they feared for their personal safety after receiving threats from fans after Saturday's game.

    Leonardo Matos-Berrido, the league president, said the decision to ban Offerman can't be appealed due to the magnitude of the offense.

    "The decision ... is definitive," said Matos-Berrido. "Offerman is excluded for life from Dominican baseball."

    Regarding the alleged threats to the umpires, Matos-Berrido said he was requesting an investigation from the Dominican police.

    Offerman, 41, took over as the Tigers' manager for the second year in a row, this time from American manager Dave Jauss.

    Last season, when he was still an active player, Offerman accepted the job during a critical time for the franchise and led it to its 20th league championship.

    A couple of days after being fired, Jauss was suspended by the league for two years for bumping an umpire during one of the playoffs games he managed.

    In 2007, Offerman, a two-time All-Star during his 15 seasons in the majors, hit Bridgeport Bluefish catcher John Nathans in the head with a bat during an independent minor league game. Offerman, playing for the Long Island Ducks, had been hit by a pitch from Matt Beech of the Bluefish.

    A court subsequently forced Offerman into anger-management treatment.

    Offerman also faces a $4.8 million civil suit brought by Nathans, who claims he continues to suffer from problems stemming from the incident, which he says ended his professional career.

    Dumbass. I'm glad no one was killed.

    CINCINNATI -- Police in northern Kentucky have arrested Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga on charges of drunken and careless driving.

    Covington police spokesman Spike Jones says Maualuga hit a parking meter and two parked cars early Friday with his 2003 Pontiac. There was minor damage.

    The 23-year-old was held about seven hours at the Kenton County jail before being released on his own recognizance.

    The Bengals' 2009 second-round draft choice from Southern Cal started the first 15 games of his rookie season before breaking his left ankle.

    Team spokesman Jack Brennan says he won't comment until the case is resolved. A message was left for agent Gary Uberstine.
