Paranoid and violent, thieves high on meth take crime to extreme levels: police
Members of the Calgary Stampeders are in mourning after the shooting death of teammate Mylan Hicks outside a Calgary nightclub early Sunday morning.
In what Stampeders president and general manager John Hufnagel described as a “terrible tragedy,” 23-year-old Hicks was critically injured after shots were fired outside the Marquee Beer Market, at 4630 Macleod Trail S., at about 2:30 a.m. He was taken to hospital, but died from his injuries.
Hicks, who was from Detroit and had been a member of the Stampeders’ practice squad since May, was described Sunday by quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell as a hard worker who “truly cared about making the team better.” More And he was from Detroit and got shot in Calgary.
Prosecutors say former NFL cornerback and one-time Calgary Stampeder Brandon Browner has been charged with trying to kill his ex-girlfriend in her Southern California home.
Browner, who won the Grey Cup in Calgary and Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, was arrested Sunday east of Los Angeles.
The LA County District Attorney’s Office says the 33-year-old was charged Tuesday with attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery and other counts. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has a lawyer. Arraignment is scheduled for July 30.
Prosecutors say Browner broke into the apartment, chased and dragged the woman and then tried to smother her in a carpet. Prosecutors say he also stole a Rolex watch valued at about $20,000.
Browner played four seasons with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League from 2007-10.
He was a three-time league all-star and won a Grey Cup championship in 2008 before signing with the Seattle Seahawks before the 2011 NFL season.
After a more reliable source from key witnesses they found out this was a great description that looked and smelt just like him.
I am assuming the Buffalo Chicks here robbed the Burger King.
