Darrius Heyward-Bey Out Of The Hospital

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey probably doesn’t remember what hit him on Sunday. He will probably never know who caused his misfortune. Was it the opposing team or the replacement officials?

Heyward-Bey is no longer in the hospital following the brutal hit he took during Sunday’s game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to the team.

Heyward-Bey appeared to be knocked unconscious by a helmet-to-helmet hit delivered by Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Mundy, laying motionless for several minutes after the collision.

With the Raiders trying to mount a rally against the Steelers in the fourth quarter, Heyward-Bey stretched out to try and make a catch in the end zone, but was sandwiched between two Pittsburgh defenders. After absorbing the jarring hit from Mundy, Heyward-Bey seemed to be out cold before even hitting the ground.

In a flagrant disregard for the safety of the players, no flag was thrown on the play by the replacement officials.

After trainers attended to Heyward-Bey and put him on a stretcher, he acknowledged the crowd with a thumbs up while getting carted off the field in Oakland. Heyward-Bey was taken to a local hospital for examination and observation.

The Raiders eventually would rally past the visiting Steelers to win 34-31.

Much like Golden Tate’s illegal and vicious block on Dallas linebacker Sean Lee in Week 2, the frightening hit left many speculating on Twitter that the replacement officials were endangering the health of players.

But the issue remains. Are the replacement officials putting professional football players at risk with their lack of experience? Instead of having control of the game, these replacement officials have made bad calls, delayed plays and even caused the wrong team to win.

Because of the incompetence of these replacement officials, the New Orleans Saints lost on Sunday even though they should have won the game. Talk about negligence.

Let’s see what happens tonight. Maybe the real officials will come back and make football more fun and a little more safer.

If you or a loved one were the victim of an accident that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.


Former Oakland Raider May Face Death Penalty

Who would have thought that the guy who was once married to 80s sex symbol Vanity – a feat that Prince and Nikki Sixx from Mötley Crüe couldn’t accomplish – would be capable of committing murder.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has not yet decided whether to seek the death penalty for three murders it says are now allegedly linked to Anthony Wayne Smith, a former Oakland Raiders defensive end already awaiting retrial in a 2008 Lancaster murder.

A criminal complaint, filed Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, includes the original murder charge involving the 2008 slaying of Maurilo Ponce but also accuses Smith of the 1999 killings of brothers Kevin and Ricky Nettles and the murder of Dennis Henderson in 2001.

Smith, 45, also faces special circumstance allegations of torture and multiple murders, along with several counts of kidnapping and robbery, according to the criminal complaint.

The murders of Henderson and the Nettles brothers were investigated by Los Angeles Police Department homicide detectives and filed as a capital case, said Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.

But prosecutors will not make a decision on whether to seek the death penalty until “closer to the trial,” she said and only after the defendant’s preliminary hearing.

Gibbons said Wednesday that in November 1999, the Nettles brothers were kidnapped from a carwash business in Los Angeles. Two people posing as police officers handcuffed the men with zip ties, Gibbons said.

The next day, the brothers were found dead, apparently tortured and shot with a 9-millimeter handgun, she said.

In June 2001, Dennis Henderson and Terry Ware were kidnapped in Los Angeles by several armed suspects, Gibbons said.

They were placed in separate cars and driven away. Ware was released, but the following day, authorities found Henderson’s body in the back of a rental car. He had been beaten, stabbed and allegedly tortured and robbed, Gibbons said.

Smith allegedly knew Henderson’s brother and lived next door to him in Marina del Rey, according to prosecutors. Gibbons said she did not know the motive for the killings.

Smith is awaiting retrial for his alleged role in the slaying of 31-year-old Ponce, whose body was found on Oct. 7, 2008, with six gunshot wounds, including two to the head.

Smith’s first trial for Ponce’s murder ended in a hung jury in April when the panel failed to reach agreement on a verdict, splitting 8 to 4 for a guilty judgment.

Also charged in connection with Ponce’s death and awaiting trial is 33-year-old Dewan Wesley White of Bloomington. A third defendant, Eric Honest, 42, of Los Angeles, was found guilty in April of second-degree murder. He is awaiting sentencing, defense attorneys said.

Michael S. Evans, who represented Smith in his first trial, could not be reached Wednesday for comment on the new murder charges against his client.

Smith, who played professional football as a defensive end with the Los Angeles Raiders and later the Oakland Raiders in the 1990s, is being held without bail and is scheduled to be arraigned July 17 on the new charges, Gibbons said.
