ARREST MADE IN THE MURDER OF XAVIER MCDANIEL JR.

Posted by HG on June 4, 2007

 **YBB UPDATE: THE XAVIER MCDANIEL JR. THAT WAS KILLED IS NOT THE SON OF FORMER NBA PLAYER XAVIER MCDANIEL. Xavier McDaniel does have a son, and his name is Xavier McDaniel Jr., but he is alive by all accounts. If you read that Fennis Dembo Jr. has been killed, don’t rush to any judgements. Apologies to all that this may have affected, including www.thebiglead.com and www.deadspin.com** END UPDATE

A 26 year old man is being held for the murder of Xavier McDaniel Jr. On April 3rd, Xavier Jr. was found in his car, shot in the chest. He was taken to the hospital but died a short time later. The suspect, Omari Lee was arrested recently when he went to an Albany area hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound.

I can’t imagine the pain a parent feels when a child is lost. It’s amazing that Xavier McDaniel Sr. can handle this so well:

“It has an opportunity to give us some closure, but we don’t know what’s going to happen. I always said it (an arrest) would happen in God’s time. It’s not that we win as a direct result of this because this is another young man’s life lost. I hope the young man gets a chance for some spiritual enlightenment throughout this.”

Thoughts and prayers go out to the McDaniel family. Hopefully justice will be served.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A PIRATE?

Posted by HG on May 9, 2007

Pirates are known for raping, pillaging, and making a killing at the box office. You can now add “obtaining property by false pretenses” to their resume.

Donnie Thompson, the most experienced assistant on the East Carolina football staff, has been suspended from his job after being charged with one count of obtaining property by false pretenses, the school announced Tuesday afternoon.

A warrant filed by the ECU police claims “BlackStache” was lying on his expense reports while out on recruiting trips. The assistant head coach and defensive line coach for Skip Holtz tallied just over 11 grand worth of bogus charges. He was reimbursed for the money even though he hadn’t spent a dime. Thompson was arrested by the campus police and is currently out of jail on a $10,000 unsecured bond.

ECU Athletics Director Terry Holland said the university will immediately begin a search to find a replacement for Thompson as defensive line coach. Thompson’s parrot could not be reached for comment.

In the movie Final Destination death hunts down those that have escaped it’s clutches. In Atlanta, trouble chases the football team. Quarterback Michael Vick has had his well publicized offseason problems, defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux allegedly whacked his girlfriend’s dog, linebacker Demorrio Williams tore a pectoral muscle lifting weights, and over the weekend defensive lineman Rod Coleman ruptured his quadriceps in a boating accident. The problems haven’t been limited to the current roster as former Falcon Ray Buchanan was arrested in February for passing bad checks, and Ashley Ambrose was picked up for allegedly abusing his wife. And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse, the team signs Joey Harrington.
