Catanzaro's 59-yard FG in OT lifts Bucs over Browns 26-23

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 17:10

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Chandler Catanzaro was confident he would redeem himself.

"I think it's part of my DNA. I've always kind of found of way to bounce back," the Tampa Bay kicker said Sunday after his 59-yard field goal — the longest ever in overtime — gave the Buccaneers a 26-23 victory over the Cleveland Browns. "I rarely miss two in a row. Even if it's from 59, I was just looking for a shot. If it was from 66, I would have tried it."

Catanzaro missed an extra point in the first half, as well as a 40-yard field goal on the final play of regulation. Concerned the Bucs (3-3) might not get the ball back if they punted, coach Dirk Koetter didn't hesitate to give his kicker a chance to end it with 1:50 remaining in the extra period.

"He hit it from 61 in practice this week, so I knew he had the distance in him," Koetter said.

"With the 10-minute overtime ... we weren't going to get the ball back," the coach added. "So go for the win or hope for the tie. And the way that game was going, we were going for the win."

Tampa Bay, which recovered Jabrill Peppers' fumble near midfield on a punt return to give itself a chance, ended a three-game skid and handed the Browns (2-4-1) a NFL record-tying 24th consecutive road loss.

Cleveland, which has played four overtime games this season — most for a team since Arizona won all four it played in 2011, and tied for second most in NFL history — doesn't have a road victory since winning in overtime at Baltimore on Oct. 11, 2015.

The Detroit Lions also dropped 24 in a row away from home from 2001-03.

"We had our chances to win it. We just didn't finish some things," Browns coach Hue Jackson said.

"This is our fourth overtime game. We're not trying to get to overtime and if we do, we want to win the game," Jackson added. "We've got to find a way to finish these games in the W column."

Jameis Winston and DeSean Jackson scored on 14-yard runs for Tampa Bay (3-3). Rookie Ronald Jones II added his first pro TD on a 2-yard run that put Tampa Bay up 23-9 heading into the fourth quarter.

The Browns, who had 126 yards of offense through three quarters, used Nick Chubb's 1-yard TD run to cut into their deficit and pulled even on Baker Mayfield's 16-yard pass to Jarvis Landry with 2:28 remaining in regulation.

A week after completing just 48 percent of his passes and being sacked five times during a 24-point loss to the Chargers that Mayfield called the worst of his career, the No. 1 overall draft pick was 23 of 34 for 215 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions.

The Browns' defense forced four turnovers, including an interception in overtime, but Mayfield struggled to move the ball with consistency until the fourth quarter. But with Chubb playing a bigger role after Cleveland traded leading rusher Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville on Friday, Cleveland rallied.

"It's very frustrating any time you lose, especially because you could have done a lot of things better," Mayfield said. "That seems to be the moral of the season."

Winston completed 32 of 52 passes for 365 yards and no touchdowns. He was sacked four times, threw two interceptions and lost a fumble. The 2013 Heisman Trophy winner also led the Bucs in rushing with 55 yards on 10 attempts.

The Browns fell to 1-2-1 in overtime games this season. The four OT games are one shy of the record five Green Bay played in 1983.

"The thing it comes down to is the little things," Mayfield said. "If we do things right we can get a few more points."

CHANCES, CHANCES

The Browns forced four turnovers, two interceptions and two fumbles, but only one of them led to points.

They wasted one scoring opportunity when Mayfield, scrambling on fourth-and-2 from the Tampa Bay 11, fumbled backward on his way to picking up the first down in the final minute of the second quarter.

The Browns came away with no points again when, trailing 23-16, Mayfield was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-goal from the Bucs 1.

The defense stepped up, forcing a punt that Peppers returned 32 yards to the Bucs 16. Mayfield threw his TD pass to Landry on the next play.

BIGGER WORKLOAD

Cleveland's decision to trade Hyde for a fifth-round draft choice was driven by a desire to give Chubb more touches and also get Duke Johnson, the team's best offensive playmaker, more involved. Chubb, who came in averaging 10.8 yards per carry, finished with 80 yards rushing on 18 attempts. He was targeted twice on passes, but did not have a catch.

BETTER 'D

Tampa Bay stopped a three-game losing streak that cost former defensive coordinator Mike Smith his job last week. The Bucs entered Sunday allowing a league-worst 34.6 points per game, ranked 31st in total defense, and dead last against the pass. They sacked Mayfield five times and allowed a season-low 305 yards in their debut under Smith's replacement, former linebackers coach Mark Duffner.

INJURIES

Browns: With CB E.J. Gaines sidelined by a concussion, T.J. Carrie started. The defense also was without LB Joe Schobert, who could be out several weeks with a hamstring injury. Cleveland did not report any injuries during the game.

Buccaneers: DT Gerald McCoy (calf) and DE Vinny Curry (ankle) were inactive, leaving rookie DT Vita Vea and DE Carl Nassib to make their first starts for Tampa Bay. LBs Kwon Alexander was lost to a knee injury late in the second quarter. Backup LB Jack Cichy left in the third quarter and did not return.

Official: 6 shot near Florida stadium, appears gang-related

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 14:32

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Six people have been wounded, some seriously, in what is being investigated as a possible gang-related shooting blocks from the NFL stadium in Florida where the Jacksonville Jaguars were hosting the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon.

Ron Lendvay, director of investigations for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, said the shooting erupted near a laundromat at 12:35 p.m. Sunday and that five men and one woman ranging in age from their 20s to the 70s were rushed to the hospital.

He reported no link to the game, which started at 1 p.m. and went on without incident. Speaking at an afternoon news briefing near the laundromat on a boulevard blocks away, Lendvay said, any fans parked near the shooting site were being escorted to their cars to retrieve them afterward and leave what he called an "active crime scene."

The Texans won their fourth consecutive game Sunday, defeating the Jaguars 20-7 to take a one-game lead in the AFC South at the stadium, TIAA Bank Field. Local media reports cited authorities as saying the shooting had had no impact on game day operations.

Lendvay told reporters that a shooter fired from the passenger side of a gray sedan driven by someone else, but details were still sketchy Sunday afternoon and that investigators haven't determined a motive. He said the car left the area and authorities were checking surveillance video to try to locate it and find those involved.

"There were at least two people in the car," Lendvay said. He added that investigators don't know if others were in the car and he didn't rule out the possibility of additional shooters. Said Lendvay: "We just don't know."

He also said he had no immediate update on the conditions of the wounded or their identities later Sunday.

"A couple of them were in very serious condition on their arrival at the hospital," Lendvay said. He added that five of the wounded were rushed by paramedics for emergency care and that the sixth person was taken by private vehicle to a hospital.

He also said that authorities have been unable to immediately determine whether there was any relationship between the victims.

"We haven't been able to interview them (the victims) at all. It's hard to say if they are all associated or not," he added.

Migrant caravan swells to 5,000, resumes advance toward US

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 13:46

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — A growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border in southern Mexico on Sunday, overwhelming Mexican government attempts to stop them at the border.

Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile (1.5 kilometers).

Several hundred more already had applied for refugee status in Mexico and an estimated 1,500 were still on the Guatemalan side of the Suchiate River, hoping to enter legally.

It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 had been gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night. But people have been joining and leaving the caravan daily, some moving at their own pace and strung out in a series of columns as they moved across Guatemala.

They marched on through Mexico like a ragtag army of the poor, shouting triumphantly slogans like "Si se pudo!" or "Yes, we could!"

As they passed through Mexican villages on the outskirts of Ciudad Hidalgo, they drew applause, cheers and donations of food and clothing from Mexicans.

Maria Teresa Orellana, a resident of the neighborhood of Lorenzo handed out free sandals to the migrants as they passed. "It's solidarity," she said. "They're our brothers."

In the tropical heat, Besi Jaqueline Lopez of San Pedro Sula carried an improbable stuffed polar bear with a winter cap, the favorite — and only — toy of her two daughters, Victoria 4 and Elisabeth, 3, as they trudged beside her, all covered in sweat.

A business administration graduate, Lopez said she couldn't find work in Honduras. She wants to reach the USA but would stay in Mexico if she could find work here. "My goal is to find work for a better future for my daughters," she said. Her husband, David Martinez, said they were tired, but had to push on to reach their goal of making it to the U.S.

Olivin Castellanos, 58, a truck driver and mason from Villanueva, Honduras, said he took a raft across the river after Mexico blocked the bridge. "No one will stop us, only God," he said. "We knocked down the door and we continue walking." He wants to reach the U.S. to work. "I can do this," he said, pointing to the asphalt under his feet. "I've made highways."

The migrants, who said they gave up trying to enter Mexico legally because the asylum application process was too slow and most want to continue to the U.S., gathered Saturday at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo. They voted by a show of hands to continue north en masse, then marched to the bridge crossing the Suchiate River and urged those still on it to come join them.

The decision to re-form the migrant caravan capped a day in which Mexican authorities again refused mass entry to migrants on the bridge, instead accepting small groups for asylum processing and giving out 45-day visitor permits to some. Authorities handed out numbers for people to be processed in a strategy seen before at U.S. border posts when dealing with large numbers of migrants.

But many became impatient and circumventing the border gate, crossing the river on rafts, by swimming or by wading in full view of the hundreds of Mexican police manning the blockade on the bridge. Some paid locals the equivalent of $1.25 to ferry them across the muddy waters. They were not detained on reaching the Mexican bank.

Sairy Bueso, a 24-year old Honduran mother of two, was another migrant who abandoned the bridge and crossed into Mexico via the river. She clutched her 2-year-old daughter Dayani, who had recently had a heart operation, as she got off a raft.

"The girl suffered greatly because of all the people crowded" on the bridge, Bueso said. "There are risks that we must take for the good of our children."

In addition to those who crossed the river, immigration agents processed migrants in small groups and then bused them to an open-air, metal-roof fairground in Tapachula, where the Red Cross set up small blue tents on the concrete floor.

Mexico's Interior Department said it had received 640 refugee requests by Hondurans at the border crossing. It released photos of migrants getting off buses at a shelter and receiving food and medical attention.

On Sunday, federal police monitored the caravan's progress from a helicopter and had a few units escorting it. Outside Tapachula about 500 federal police briefly gathered along the highway on buses and in patrol units, but officers said their instructions were to maintain traffic on the highway not stop the caravan. They moved on toward Tapachula before the caravan reached them.

Migrants cited widespread poverty and gang violence in Honduras, one of the world's deadliest nations by homicide rate, as their reasons for joining the caravan.

Juan Carlos Mercado, 20, from Santa Barbara, Honduras, says corruption and a lack of jobs in Honduras has stymied him. "We just want to move ahead with our lives," he said Sunday. He said he'd do any kind of work.

The caravan elicited a series of angry tweets and warnings from Trump early in the week, but Mexico's initial handling of the migrants at its southern border seemed to have satisfied him more recently.

"So as of this moment, I thank Mexico," Trump said Friday at an event in Scottsdale, Arizona. "I hope they continue. But as of this moment, I thank Mexico. If that doesn't work out, we're calling up the military — not the Guard."

"They're not coming into this country," Trump added.

"The Mexican Government is fully engaged in finding a solution that encourages safe, secure, and orderly migration," State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Saturday, "and both the United States and Mexico continue to work with Central American governments to address the economic, security, and governance drivers of illegal immigration."

After an emergency meeting in Guatemala, presidents Hernandez of Honduras and Jimmy Morales of Guatemala said an estimated 5,400 migrants had entered Guatemala since the caravan was announced a week ago, and about 2,000 Hondurans have returned voluntarily.

Morales said a Honduran migrant died in the town of Villa Nueva, 20 miles (30 kilometers) from Guatemala City, when he fell from a truck.

"Halloween" scares up $77.5 million in ticket sales

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 13:24

LOS ANGELES — Forty years after he first appeared in theaters, Michael Myers is still drawing huge audiences for a good scare.

Universal Pictures said Sunday that "Halloween" took in an estimated $77.5 million in ticket sales from North American theaters.

It captured first place at the box office with the second-highest horror opening of all time, behind last year's "It."

It also marked the second highest October opening ever behind "Venom's" $80.3 million launch earlier this month.

The studio also says it's the biggest movie opening ever with a female lead over 55, in star Jamie Lee Curtis.

David Gordon Green directed "Halloween," which brings back Curtis as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as Michael Myers and essentially ignores the events of the other sequels and spinoffs aside from John Carpenter's original.

Reviews have been largely positive for the new installment, with an 80 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a B+ Cinema Score from audiences that were mostly older (59 percent over 25) and male (53 percent). Internationally, "Halloween" earned $14.3 million from 23 markets.

Blumhouse, the shop behind "Get Out" and numerous other modestly budgeted horror films, co-produced "Halloween." It cost only $10 million to make.

"You take the nostalgia for 'Halloween,' especially with the return of Jamie Lee Curtis, and you combine that with the Blumhouse brand and its contemporary currency in the genre and it just made for a ridiculously potent combination at the box office this weekend," said Jim Orr, Universal's president of domestic distribution.

With 10 days to go until the holiday, including another weekend, the studio expects "Halloween" to enjoy a much longer life than typical horror films that usually drop off significantly after the first weekend.

"Halloween" was enough to bump the comic-book film "Venom" out of the No. 1 spot and into third place. In its third weekend in theaters, it collected $18.1 million, bringing its domestic total to $171.1 million.

Meanwhile "A Star Is Born" held on to second place in its third weekend with $19.3 million. The Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga drama has grossed $126.4 million from North American theaters and is cruising to break $200 million worldwide Sunday.

Damien Chazelle's Neil Armstrong biopic "First Man" tumbled to fifth place in its second weekend earning $8.6 million, down 46 percent from its launch.

It was a particularly busy week at the box office as critically acclaimed films such as the young adult adaptation "The Hate U Give" and the Robert Redford swan song "The Old Man & The Gun" expanded nationwide after a few weeks in limited release.

"The Hate U Give," now in 2,303 locations, placed sixth with $7.5 million, and "The Old Man & The Gun" took 10th with $2.1 million from 802 locations.

A number of well-received indies also made their debuts. At the top was Jonah Hill's directorial debut "Mid90s," which opened in four theaters with $249,500 (or a $62,375 per theater average).

The Melissa McCarthy film "Can You Ever Forgive Me," about the literary forger Lee Israel, grossed $150,000 in five locations.

October has never been a particularly strong box office month, but 2018 has helped to change that. The weekend was up nearly 72 percent from the same weekend last October and the year to date is up nearly 11 percent.

"The industry is on a major roll right now," said comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian. "Audiences are responding to movies big and small right now — You can have your cinematic fast food and fine dining all at once right now. The movie-going experience is as viable and relevant as ever."

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1."Halloween," $77.5 million ($14.3 million international).

2."A Star Is Born," $19.3 million ($22.8 million international).

3."Venom," $18.1 million ($32.3 million international).

4."Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween," $9.7 million ($6.2 million international).

5."First Man," $8.6 million ($13.4 million international).

6."The Hate U Give,"$7.5 million.

7. "Smallfoot," $6.6 million ($14 million international).

8."Night School," $5 million ($1.5 million international).

9."Bad Times At The El Royale," $3.3 million ($2.5 million international).

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at international theaters (excluding the U.S. and Canada), according to comScore:

1. "Venom," $32.3 million.

2. "A Star Is Born," $22.8 million.

Ohio State drops to No. 11 in AP Poll after loss to Purdue

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 12:06

Clemson is back at No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll behind top-ranked Alabama, moving up to where it started, after a convincing victory and Ohio State's first loss of the season.

The Crimson Tide are a unanimous No.1, with all 61 first-place votes , for the first time this season.

The Tigers trailed only Alabama in the preseason rankings, but a couple of close wins in September — combined with seemingly impressive performances by other highly ranked teams — dragged Clemson to as low as No. 4.

Coming off a lopsided win against North Carolina State, Clemson rose a spot this week. Notre Dame is No. 3 and LSU is No. 4, setting the stage for a top-five matchup between the Tigers and Crimson Tide in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Nov. 3. Both have an open date this week.

Michigan is No. 5 and Ohio State dropped to No. 11 after being upset by Purdue.

No. 25 Appalachian State is ranked in the AP poll for the first time in school history.

TOP 25

  1. Alabama (8-0)
  2. Clemson (7-0)
  3. Notre Dame (7-0)
  4. LSU (7-1)

Hurricane Willa becomes Category 4 storm off Pacific coast of Mexico

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 11:41

MEXICO CITY — ​A newly formed hurricane rapidly gained strength off Mexico's Pacific coast Sunday and has become a major Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said it could make landfall by Tuesday. A hurricane watch was posted for a stretch of shore between San Blas and Mazatlan.

In its latest advisory, NHC said Willa was about 230 miles south-southwest of Cabo Corrientes in Mexico and moving north-northwest at 6 mph and is expected to start curving toward the north later Sunday night and Monday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles.

The storm could produce dangerous storm surge, while dumping 5 to 10 inches of rain across parts of western Jalisco, western Nayarit and southern Sinaloa states, with lesser amounts falling as it moves inland, according to NHC.

NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Vicente appeared to be a less potent threat farther south. Forecasters said it was likely to remain just offshore or near Mexico's southern Pacific coast through Monday night and perhaps edge ashore Tuesday.

The storm was located about 230 miles southeast of Acapulco, Mexico, and moving west at about 10 mph, according to NHC. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to 40 mph with higher gusts.

The NHC said it could produce 3 to 6 inches of rain near the coast.

Peter Martinez contributed to this report.

Ohio lawmakers push for teen driving permits to last 1 year

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 10:30

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Sponsors of an Ohio bill that would increase the amount of time new drivers would be required to hold permits say they want to see it become law by year's end.

Reps. Gary Scherer, a Circleville Republican, and Michael Sheehy, an Oregon Democrat, recently promoted the proposal ahead of Teen Driver Safety Week, which began Sunday.

Drivers under the age of 18 would be required to hold an instruction permit for one year instead of six months under the plan. Probationary permit holders would also be prohibited from driving from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. unless they're accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Backers including the PTA and AAA hope for House approval after the November election. That would send the measure to the Ohio Senate.

No Powerball winners, jackpot grows to $620 million

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 09:57

Powerball said Sunday there were no winners, bringing the jackpot up to $620 million. The next drawing will be Wednesday.

The winning numbers for Powerball's $476.7 million jackpot on Saturday were 16, 54, 57, 62 and 69 and the Powerball was 23.

There was no winner in the huge Mega Millions $1 billion jackpot on Friday, pushing Tuesday's drawing to a $1.6 billion jackpot.

The jackpot keeps growing because the last Powerball winner was on Aug. 11.

Powerball winning numbers

  • 16, 54, 57, 62 and 69
  • Powerball: 23

How late can you play Powerball?

Sales cut off at least 59 minutes before the drawing, according to the Multi-State Lottery Commission. But cut-off times can be earlier depending on the state, so it's best to check your state's lottery commission.

Odds of winning

The odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball. You were 25,000 times more likely to hit a hole-in-one than you are of winning Saturday's jackpot.

Who buys lotto tickets?

About two-thirds of Americans gamble. Last year, they spent $72.97 billion on traditional lottery tickets, according to Gallup.

On average, that's $206.69 per person. "Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that unicorn feeling of, like, 'maybe it'll be me,'" CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger said. She points out that some people don't necessarily play to win.

"They just want to take a moment out of their day to consider how to dream big," Schlesinger said.

The average American spends about $223 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey from LENDedu. Massachusetts residents have the biggest taste for playing the odds, spending almost $763 per year on lottery tickets, the study found. North Dakotans are on the opposite end of the spectrum, spending about $44 per year on the lottery, or the lowest average figure among residents of all 50 states.

Dozens hurt in floor collapse at S. Carolina apartment party

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 09:39

ATLANTA — The floor of a clubhouse near Clemson University where a large party was taking place collapsed early Sunday, hurtling dozens of people into the basement, authorities said.

About 30 people were taken to local hospitals after the center portion of the floor at the clubhouse in South Carolina caved in during a private party. Clemson City Police said no one was trapped and none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

Video posted on social media shows a large portion of a floor on the first level of the building caving in as people were dancing, causing dozens to fall through to the floor below.

Clemson sophomore Larissa Stone told the Independent Mail of Anderson that the room was "packed" and a popular song began playing at the moment of collapse.

"So everyone was jumping. The beat was about to drop and literally the whole floor collapsed," she said. "It happened so quickly. I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out. People are under other people. People are hurt. People are bleeding. I had blood on my sneakers. It was really bad."

Partygoers screamed, and those who didn't fall stood on portions of the first floor that remained and gazed below in shock. Some people standing on the sidelines pulled out their cellphones to record the floor collapse.

A witness who attended the party said people were jumping and then suddenly he heard "a boom."

"All you seen was falling, everybody's hands up in the air," Franzie Pendergrass told WYFF News 4.

Leroy Pearson said he went to try to help injured people and saw what he thought looked like broken ankles and legs.

"It was crazy," Pearson said.

Police said the event was a private party by a group that had leased the clubhouse at the Woodlands Apartments, about three miles from Clemson.

The apartment complex's answering service said no officials would be available for comment before Monday.

According to police said a call was received about 12:30 a.m. Sunday about the collapse of the floor at The Woodlands Apartments clubhouse. Ambulances were quickly called to the scene.

David Bell hired as Cincinnati Reds manager

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 09:16

CINCINNATI — David Bell has been hired as manager of the Cincinnati Reds, tasked with helping turn around a team that skidded to a 67-95 record and last-place finish in the NL Central.

The Reds said Sunday he has been given a three-year contract that includes a team option for 2022. The 46-year-old Cincinnati native is to be introduced at a news conference Monday.

The Reds fired Bryan Price after a 3-15 start, and Jim Riggleman was interim manager for the rest of the season.

Bell was a minor league manager for the Reds from 2009-12, became the Chicago Cubs' third base coach in 2013, St. Louis' assistant hitting coach the following year and the Cardinals' bench coach for the next three years. He was San Francisco's vice president of player development last season.

Bell and his father, Reds front office executive Buddy, become the fourth father-son duo to serve as major league managers, joining George and Dick Sisler, Bob and Joel Skinner, and Bob and Aaron Boone. Buddy Bell managed the Detroit Tigers (1996-1998), Colorado Rockies (2000-2002) and Kansas City Royals (2005-2007).

David Bell becomes the 63rd manager in Reds' history.

The former infielder was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the seventh round of the 1990 draft and made his major league debut in 1995. He played parts of 12 seasons in the majors with the Indians, Cardinals, Seattle Mariners, Giants, Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers.

Fight breaks out in LeBron's home Lakers debut

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 06:59

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Once the fists started flying late in the fourth quarter, LeBron James' home debut with the Los Angeles Lakers was relegated to the undercard.

A wild multiplayer fight that included the normally mild-mannered Chris Paul and Brandon Ingram stole part of the spotlight shining on LeBron's official landing on the West Coast.

The Houston Rockets stole the rest with a gritty victory.

James scored 24 points, but Paul, Ingram and Rajon Rondo all were ejected after trading blows late in the Rockets' 124-115 win Saturday night.

Before the late drama overshadowed everything, James got several big ovations from a tremendously lively sellout crowd in his first home game since joining the Lakers as a free agent.

"The atmosphere was great," James said. "The fans were extremely excited. We gave them everything that we could. Wish we could have gave them more with this win, but it was very electric."

But perhaps that energy — and a flagrant foul by Houston's James Ennis III against Josh Hart earlier in the fourth quarter — contributed to the shocking fight that broke out with 4:13 to play.

The Rockets were clinging to a 109-108 lead when Ingram was called for a foul while trying to defend an aggressive drive by James Harden, who finished with 36 points.

Furious with the call, Ingram shoved Harden and then confronted referee Jason Phillips after getting a technical foul.

In the ensuing group argument, Paul stuck a finger into the face of Rondo, who responded by punching his fellow point guard. Ingram then threw punches in the melee. James attempted to break up the fight by grabbing Paul, his friend.

Paul claimed Rondo caused their fight by spitting on him.

"Unacceptable," Houston's Carmelo Anthony said. "We all know what happened. Ain't no need to keep going back and forth about that. What happened was unacceptable. It shouldn't have happened."

Rondo's teammates said they didn't know whether Paul's claim was accurate. Lakers coach Luke Walton said his players were playing with extra aggravation after Ennis clotheslined Hart on a flagrant foul 4 ½ minutes earlier.

"I felt like the other team was trying to provoke us, and we fell for it," said the Lakers' Lance Stephenson, another peacemaker in the brawl.

When tempers cooled after a nearly 10-minute break, Houston finished the game on a 15-8 run. Harden hit a key 3-pointer with 1:12 left to propel the Rockets to their first win of the season.

"We played amazing tonight, and I feel like the fight probably put us back," said JaVale McGee, who had 16 points and six rebounds in his own Lakers home debut. "If there wasn't the fight, we probably would have won that game."

Paul had 28 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds before getting tossed. Clint Capela had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Anthony scored seven points off the bench as Houston rebounded from an embarrassing season-opening loss to New Orleans.

Rondo had 13 points and 10 assists before getting thrown out. LeBron also had five rebounds and five assists, but he went 1 for 8 in the fourth quarter, missing all three of his 3-point attempts.

"Yeah, James was James. That's what he does," Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said. "I thought it was a great game. It had some intensity and quickness, and how fast it was."

TIP-INS

Rockets: Harden got a technical foul in the second quarter when he halfheartedly shoved Stephenson, who sold it impressively. ... Houston hasn't lost a season series with the Lakers since 2010-11. ... Gerald Green scored 13 points.

Lakers: Ingram had 12 points before his ejection. ... Rookie C Moe Wagner wasn't ready for his home debut while he recovers from a bruised left knee. ... Lonzo Ball showed off his retooled jumper with four 3-pointers and 14 points.

DISCIPLINE COMING

The fight could leave both teams without key rotation players due to suspension. NBA fights rarely get serious enough for the punches thrown by the principals in this brouhaha, and league discipline executive Kiki VanDeWeghe was actually in attendance.

The Rockets are staying in LA to play the Clippers on Sunday night, and Houston coach Mike D'Antoni laughed at the possibility of a suspension for CP3.

"I don't know, I might rest him (on a) back-to-back," D'Antoni said. "We'll see what the NBA says."

FIRST STEP

The Lakers dropped to 0-2 after James' West Coast chapter formally began Thursday with a 128-119 road loss to the Trail Blazers. James scored 26 points in Portland, but the Lakers' team vibe could take many weeks to solidify before they can compete regularly with veteran playoff-contending rosters.

The Rockets are a few months removed from reaching Game 7 of the Western Conference finals, and they've added Anthony to their attack.

"We've got a long way to go to get to the Rockets, to get to a lot of teams in the Western Conference," James said. "They've just been together for so long. We'll learn from our mistakes and get better."

Moscow says US treaty pullout would be 'very dangerous step'

Channel 10 news - Sun, 10/21/2018 - 05:17

ELKO, Nevada (AP) — President Donald Trump says his intention to scrap a landmark arms control agreement Russia follows years of violations by Moscow in developing prohibited weapons, and "we're not going to be the only one to adhere to it." The Kremlin said the pullout "would be a very dangerous step."

The 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty helps protect the security of the U.S. and its allies in Europe and the Far East. It bars the United States and Russia from possessing, producing or test-flying a ground-launched cruise missile with a range of 300 miles to 3,400 miles.

"Russia has violated the agreement. They have been violating it for many years," Trump said Saturday after a rally in Elko, Nevada. "And we're not going to let them violate a nuclear agreement and go out and do weapons and we're not allowed to."

The agreement has constrained the U.S. from developing new weapons, but America will begin developing them unless Russia and China agree not to possess or develop the weapons, Trump said. China is not a party to the pact.

"We'll have to develop those weapons, unless Russia comes to us and China comes to us and they all come to us and say let's really get smart and let's none of us develop those weapons, but if Russia's doing it and if China's doing it, and we're adhering to the agreement, that's unacceptable," he said.

Trump is sending his national security adviser, John Bolton, to Moscow for meetings with Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, and was expected to relay the news about Trump's decision.

"This would be a very dangerous step," Russia's deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, was quoted as telling state news agency Tass on Sunday. He said a U.S. withdrawal "will cause the most serious condemnation from all members of the international community who are committed to security and stability."

But Britain's defense secretary, Gavin Williamson, said his country stands "absolutely resolute" with the United States on the treaty dispute. Williamson blamed Russia for endangering the arms control pact and he called on the Kremlin to "get its house in order."

Williamson told the Financial Times on Sunday that Moscow had made a "mockery" of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.

U.S.-Russia relations already are strained as a result of the Ukrainian crisis, the war in Syria and allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential race and upcoming U.S. midterm elections.

Trump did not provide details about violations. But in 2017, White House national security officials said Russia had deployed a cruise missile in violation of the treaty. Earlier, the Obama administration accused the Russians of violating the pact by developing and testing a prohibited cruise missile.

Russia has repeatedly denied that it has violated the treaty and has accused the United States of not being in compliance.

Defense Secretary James Mattis has previously suggested that a Trump administration proposal to add a sea-launched cruise missile to America's nuclear arsenal could provide the U.S. with leverage to try to persuade Russia to come back in line on the arms treaty.

Russia's Foreign Ministry said in February that the country would only consider using nuclear weapons in response to an attack involving nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction, or in response to a non-nuclear assault that endangered the survival of the Russian nation.

An independent Russian political analyst, Dmitry Oreshkin, said, "We are slowly slipping back to the situation of cold war as it was at the end of the Soviet Union, with quite similar consequences, but now it could be worse because (Russian President Vladimir) Putin belongs to a generation that had no war under its belt."

Trump's decision could prove controversial with European allies and others who see value in the treaty, said Steven Pifer, a former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and now a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who focuses on nuclear arms control.

"Once the United States withdraws from the treaty, there is no reason for Russia to even pretend it is observing the limits," he wrote in a post on the organization's website. "Moscow will be free to deploy the 9M729 cruise missile, and an intermediate-range ballistic missile if it wants, without any restraint."

U.S. officials have previously alleged that Russia violated the treaty by deliberately deploying a land-based cruise missile in order to pose a threat to NATO. Russia has claimed that U.S. missile defenses violate the pact.

In the past, the Obama administration worked to convince Moscow to respect the INF treaty but made little progress.

"If they get smart and if others get smart and they say let's not develop these horrible nuclear weapons, I would be extremely happy with that, but as long as somebody's violating the agreement, we're not going to be the only ones to adhere to it," Trump said.

No. 2 Ohio State stumbles at Purdue, gets beat 49-20

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 21:55

Ohio State lost its first game of the season and its 12-game winning streak snapped as they fall against Purdue 49-20.

Quarterback Dwayne Haskins finished 49 of 73, shattering the single-game school records in both categories, and had 470 yards and two touchdowns and one interception.

The Buckeyes (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) faced their largest halftime deficit of the season, 14-3, before giving up four scoring plays of more than 40 yards in the fourth quarter.

After closing to 14-6 early in the third quarter, Davon Hamilton was called for roughing the kicker and the Boilermakers (4-3, 3-1 Big Ten) cashed in on their second chance with D.J. Knox's 1-yard TD run.

Haskins finally hooked up with Johnnie Dixon III on a 32-yard TD pass to make it 28-13 and Terry McLaurin on a 34-yard TD pass to make it 35-20 with 4:40 to go, but David Blough's TD pass to Rondale Moore and Markus Bailey's interception return sealed it.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

Ohio State was the only top 10 team to lose Saturday and is likely to take a tumble in the rankings.

The Boilermakers may have to wait at least another week to crack the Top 25, but they should get the attention of voters this week and may pick up some votes.

UP NEXT

Buckeyes: Have a bye week to contemplate what went wrong before hosting Nebraska on Nov. 3.

Boilermakers: Head to No. 24 Michigan State next Saturday, hoping to build on their momentum.

A Son's Plea: Son of murder victim urges central Ohio families to seek help for mental illness

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 21:11

COLUMBUS -- After a barricade situation turned murder-suicide left two people dead, the son of the murder victim is urging families across central to seek assistance for their loved ones living with mental illness.

Geoffrey Helms says his mother, 73-year-old Jerry Helms, made it her life mission to serve and help others.

“She’s a very giving person, she’s a retired school teacher with Columbus Public, she was active in ministry at Abundant Life Ministries,” Helms said.

In addition to serving the public, Helms said his mother offered aid to relatives.

“Taking care of her cousins which were in a sense like little brothers to her.

“Every two weeks, every other Wednesday, she was taking food to them to make sure they were taken care of,” Helms said.

But Helms said one of those cousins, 60-year-old Donald Bugg, who he alleges battled mental illness for decades, was resistant to Jerry’s help.

Helms says Jerry served as power of attorney for Bugg's mother, a move he said Bugg resented and often verbalized in a threatening manner.

On Wednesday while making a delivery to her cousins’ home, Jerry was killed.

Columbus Police say after five hours of negotiating with Bugg, they entered his North Ohio Avenue home where he fired shots at officers before turning the gun on himself.

“It just shows how unstable, imbalanced and sick Donald was,” Helms said.

“Take mental illness seriously and get help, get them help don’t be ashamed to call your local health agency and get those resources in action so these people can get the help that they need.”

Border patrol arrests of migrant family members hit all-time high in September, DHS says

Channel 10 news - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 20:27

A recent increase in migrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico caused agitation at the White House this week and reportedly led to a heated shouting match between two of the president's top advisers.

Border Patrol arrests of migrant families have been surging since the family separation policy ended earlier this year, with nearly 17,000 family members arrested in September. The Department of Homeland Security said that is the most on record for any month – and an 80 percent increase from July.

The recent surge is overwhelming government facilities and forcing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to quickly release migrants just hours after they're arrested.

Family apprehensions by the U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona increased by 121 percent this year as compared to last.

In an interview with "60 Minutes," President Trump was reluctant to say whether he'd reinstate the family separation policy.

"When you allow the parents to stay together, OK, when you allow that, then what happens is people are gonna pour into our country," Mr. Trump said. "We're looking at a lot of things. Really what we want to do is change the immigration laws."

Parents told CBS News' Mireya Villarreal the administration's decision to pause the practice of separating families is one of the reasons they decided to cross the border now.

One woman says a guide told her that she wasn't going to be separated from her child, which is the reason she traveled to the U.S. now. Once groups cross into the U.S. illegally, they are actively searching for agents so they can turn themselves in. Border Patrol says smugglers are taking advantage of the uncertainty.

"So they think it's a free ticket to the U.S.?" Villarreal asked U.S. Border Patrol agent Daniel Hernandez. "Well that's the perceived notion and that's what smugglers are telling them and what they're selling that journey as," he said.

The United Church of Christ is one of seven Tucson churches that have become temporary homes for migrant families just released by ICE.

"The gates just opened very suddenly. I think we got 800 people," said Pastor Delle McCormick.

The fight for asylum now moves to closed courts. In the meantime, the United Church of Christ's doors will remain open.
