ESPN's Howard Bryant Arrested For Domestic Assault

ESPN senior writer Howard Bryant was arrested on Saturday and was charged with assaulting his estranged wife and hitting a police officer who tried to subdue him in Buckland, Mass.

Five witnesses gave statements that claimed Bryant was arguing with a woman and eventually choked and pushed her into a car. After the police arrived, Bryant reportedly struck an officer in the chest with his elbow. It took four police officers three minutes before they could subdue Bryant.

“We are gathering information about it,” spokesman Josh Krulewitz told Jeanette DeForge of The Republican.

Bryant was released on $5,000 bail and is expected to be arraigned on Monday in Greenfield District Court.

The former Washington Post writer was hired by ESPN in 2007 and is a contributor to ESPN.com and ESPN the Magazine.

Paralympics Has A New Star

Wired’s excellent sports blog, Playbook, notes Oscar Pistorius – “Blade Runner” – lost his first race in seven years.

The double amputee fell to Jerome Singleton in the 100m race at the International Paralympic Committee Athletics World Championships despite picking himself to defeat the Beijing Paralympic silver medalist.

The American Singelton ran a 11.43 and won in a photo finish.

Pistorius, who already claimed gold in the 200m, hopes to race in the 2012 Olympics in London. Perhaps he can bring Singleton along?
