GM stung by scorpion: Doug Melvin sought medical attention

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin sought medical attention after he was bitten by a scorpion Wednesday night in Phoenix Injuries to MLB general managers are piling up.

Report: Jennifer Capriati arrest warrant sought

Jennifer Capriati An arrest warrant is being sought for Tennis Hall of Famer Jennifer Capriati, according to Gossip Extra. It seems the North Palm Beach Police Department, in Palm Beach, Fla., may be seeking a warrant after a February 14 incident. Capriati, a former women's tennis champion, allegedly ran into a former boyfriend, Ivan Brannan, at a gym, and the reunion didn't go well. The report says she struck him in the chest with her fist multiple times, before a yoga instructor intervened. At that time, Brannan reportedly took cover in the men's locker room and called 911. Once 911 was called, Capriati supposedly left. She was stopped by cops, who verified her identity and let her go. A spokesman with the Palm Beach County State Attorney's office declined to comment on the possibility of any warrant.
