Accused narco trafficker on $100,000 bail

first_imgA 22-year-old man who told the court during his appearance that the Police bullied him into signing a caution statement was granted bail for narcotic trafficking.Christopher Watts, of North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, stood before Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus and denied the charge that stated that on July 12, 2019 at North Ruimveldt, Georgetown he had 3.3 grams of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking.The prosecution’s case stated that a raid was carried out at Watts’ home and the cannabis was found in his room in a shoe box under his bed.According to Prosecutor Shondel Daniels, Watts admitted to the offence in a caution statement and claimed that he took the cannabis home the day before it was found. However, Watts told the court that nothing was found during the search.“They come by me and say that they want me for some robbery, they carry me to Brickdam, but they didn’t find nothing on me,” the defendant alleged.He was released on $100,000 bail, and the case was scheduled to continue on July 29, 2019.last_img read more

High-scoring Napoli continue title push

first_img0Shares0000Napoli’s midfielder Allan (L) celebrates with teammates Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Maria Callejon (C) after scoring against Sassuolo at the San Paolo Comunal Stadium in Naples, on October 29, 2017 © AFP / ANDREAS SOLAROMILAN, Italy, Oct 29 – Napoli reclaimed top spot in Serie A on Sunday maintaining their unbeaten record with a 3-1 win at Sassuolo to retain their three-point cushion on Juventus and Lazio.Ahead of hosting Manchester City in Champions League midweek, Napoli responded to Juventus’s 2-0 win at AC Milan on Saturday. Maurizio Sarri’s side have 31 points from 11 games, although undefeated Inter Milan could close the gap to two points at Verona on Monday.But the Napoli coach was far from happy with his side for allowing Diego Falcinelli to equalise for Sassuolo on 41 minutes after Brazilian Allan had opened the scoring on 22 minutes.“When we dominate, we get lazy and it gets us into these situations. Against all logic, it looked as if we’d go into the break on 1-1,” said Sarri.Jose Callejon restored Napoli’s advantage just before half-time direct from a curling corner kick before in-form Belgian Dries Mertens completed the scoring after 54 minutes.“The total dominance makes us lose our sense of danger and that is an aspect that we’ve got to shake off,” warned Sarri.“The top of the table is very tight, as Napoli and Inter are unbeaten, while Lazio and Juventus lost only once.“I don’t think these sides will keep that kind of tempo up for the rest of the season, and that goes for us too. It looks as if the Scudetto will be won with over 90 points.”He added: “The only thing we must believe in is Wednesday’s game against Manchester City. We know it’ll be very tough, but our minds must only focus on that. The season has only just begun.”– Immobile inspires –Lazio joined the leading group earlier Sunday with a 5-1 win at Benevento who slumped to an 11th defeat in as many games.Lazio’s striker Lucas Nani (L) celebrates with teammates after scoring against Benevento Calcio at the Ciro Vigorito Stadium in Benevento on October 29, 2017 © AFP / CARLO HERMANNBenevento’s first top-flight season has been a nightmare with the arrival of new coach Roberto De Zerbi this week doing little to improve the fortunes of the club from outside Naples with a witch on their crest.No other European club in a major league have had a worse start to the season — apart from Manchester United, relegated after the 1930-1931 season after losing their first 12 matches.Lazio are riding high despite the controversy which overshadowed the previous week when their fans posted photos of Anne Frank in a jersey of hated rivals Roma in the Stadio Olympico.Ciro Immobile gave an inspirational performance again for Lazio — who claimed a sixth straight Serie A win — as he scored after 13 minutes and set up three goals.“I’m happy with the three assists, as my teammates tell me I never pass the ball and only ever want to score, so they can’t complain now,” said Immobile, the leading scorer in Italy with 14 goals in 11 matches.Bastos opened after four minutes for Lazio with Adam Marusic also on target with the visitors leading 3-0 at the break.Moroccan Achraf Lazaar pulled one back for Benevento in the second half — just their fourth goal of the season — but Lazio added another two through Marco Parolo and Nani, who scored his first goal since arriving in Rome this summer.On Saturday, Gonzalo Higuain scored a brace to bring his tally of Serie A goals to 101 with a 2-0 win that plunged AC Milan further into crisis on front of a capacity 80,000 crowd at the San Siro.Vincenzo Montella’s Milan are eighth, 15 points behind the leaders, and far below their objective of Champions League football next season.Roma took all three points at Bologna thanks to an exquisite Stephan El Shaarawy volley to stay fifth, just ahead of Sampdoria who beat Chievo 4-1, as Crotone shocked Fiorentina 2-1.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Liverpool target exclusive: ‘I’ve no idea who’s valuing me at £20m’

first_img1 Saido Berahino speaks with Sport magazine This article appears in the current edition of our sister publication, Sport magazine. Download the free Sport iPad app from the Apple Newsstand, and follow on Twitter @SportmagukGoal-scorer. Headline writer. Saido Berahino finds himself on the front pages as easily as he does on the back.His first England call-up was followed by a drink driving charge weeks later. A fortnight ago, he was benched for West Brom’s game against Burnley after talking of moving to a “bigger” club. Three days later, recalled, he scored in a 2-0 win over Swansea – then again in Saturday’s FA Cup dismantling of West Ham.His manager Tony Pulis is his biggest fan and his strongest critic. After the Baggies’ 3-0 defeat to Tottenham, Pulis huffed that Berahino had “a long way to go” to catch up with Spurs starlet Harry Kane. Tellingly, Kane scored twice while Berahino was booked for dissent.Check his Instagram feed, and you see a lad who lives with his mum and quotes the Bible. Read the papers and he’s a player desperate for a big move who has been fined for arriving late for matches. So, we ask, will the real Saido Berahino please stand up?Are you a bad boy or a nice lad with an unfair reputation?“The media wants me to be a bad boy, but those who know me know I’m not that. People read it so much it becomes fact. But if every footballer sat down and read everything that had been said about them, they’d lose their minds. I chose this career and you just have to get on with it, but certain people should be softer on me. I try to be a good guy. I’ve never met anyone I’ve hated or hold any grudges against. I’m as easygoing as any other 21-year-old.”Roy Hodgson was your manager in your younger days at West Brom. Has he spoken to you since your England call-up?“He isn’t the type of manager who talks much to players. I was a reserve when he was in charge at West Brom and was involved with a few training sessions – which were always fun. But even when I was selected for the seniors, he didn’t call. I see him at St George’s Park as part of the under-21s, though. He always asks how the season is going.”What one thing did you take away from training with England?“The attention to detail. The top pros train how they play, with that intensity the whole time. It was an unbelievable moment to train with the best in the country, and for a great manager.”Eighteen months ago, you were yet to start for West Brom. Now you’re being touted at £20m…“I’ve no idea who is valuing me at £20m. The media loves hype, and if that’s what they think I am worth then that’s their opinion. I know my strengths and weaknesses; all I want to do is grow and score goals.”You’ve played under five different managers since your debut. Has that been difficult to adjust to?“It’s been very tough – about the biggest challenge I’ve faced as a footballer. As a youngster, all you want is someone to put their arm around you, someone you can learn from. Going through all these different managers, you do learn – but your learning curve can dip because you are suddenly out there trying to win a new guy over.”We understand you watch every game back on your own. Are you happy with what you have seen?“That’s what I do after every Premier League game, and always have. You take any advantage you can to improve. I liked the Hull game [Berahino scored in a 1-0 win]; I was playing in the number 10 role, which was new for me. I took on a lot of information from the gaffer and I felt I performed strong. The players also said so, which is nice.”Do you enjoy that role?“I’m an out-and-out striker who likes to run behind and create chaos for the centre-backs. Obviously I’m sacrificing that for the team – the gaffer knows it’s not my strongest position or where I want to play, but we’ll see if he puts me back where I know I can score goals.”How do you get on with Tony Pulis – is he as scary as he looks?“He’s not that bad, you know! He’s easy to work with. He lays out his instructions, and you are always comfortable playing for him because he talks to you and you know exactly what you have to do. That makes your life easy.”Saido Berahino was talking at the launch of EVOLVE – available now on Xbox ONE, PlayStation 4 and PClast_img read more

Shock starter & Ozil pushed OUT – Danny Murphy on how Arsenal can cope with injury crisis

first_imgArsenal are in the midst of another injury crisis ahead of a crucial run of games.EIGHT senior stars are currently sidelined after Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain became the latest names to join the Gunners’ casualty list, which also includes Aaron Ramsey.Arsene Wenger fears the injury problems could derail the club’s season as they prepare for three important fixtures in the next fortnight, a daunting Champions League trip to Bayern Munich sandwiched between Premier League clashes with Swansea and north London rivals Tottenham.Danny Murphy, however, has told talkSPORT that Wenger shouldn’t be too worried about being unable to call upon the likes of Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ramsey, as the ex-England ace is convinced that a shuffle of personnel can see them through this tricky period.Speaking on the Colin Murray show, Murphy said: “I think, especially with the Bayern game coming up, it might just mean that they are a bit more solid. Not necessarily better but just more solid than they would have been had they had these players fit.“In an ideal world you want all your players fit. I’m a big fan of all those lads that are injured, The Ox especially. But you could quite easily push Mesut Ozil from the number ten role to the right wing, which is where he has played when he won the World Cup with Germany. He could come in off that right side and be a goal threat.“Ozil is playing brilliantly at the moment and I know some Arsenal fans will question why you would want to play him out of position when he is playing so well. Well, needs must I’m afraid.“That would then free up the number ten role for Santi Cazorla, who is probably Arsenal’s most creative force in terms of his ability to see a pass.“That leaves a hole next to [Francis] Coquelin but it leaves a hole for someone who can help him with the defensive side and the obvious candidate for that is [Mathieu] Flamini. I know as well as all the Arsenal fans that Flamini isn’t the answer every game for a full season but for the sake of a month [he could be].“I saw him score the winner and play brilliantly at White Hart Lane. He is getting older but for the next few games, or up until the next set of internationals, I would put Flamini next to Coquelin and tell them not to move, especially for that big game in Munich.“Let Cazorla edge forward a bit more, stick Ozil on the right wing for a few weeks, and then [Olivier] Giroud of course will play up front because Walcott is out. I don’t think it is all doom and gloom. It is manageable for now.”last_img read more

Influential DWP chief will retire

first_imgPOLITICS: Ronald Deaton has been on medical leave since July. Leaders praise his prowess for deal-making. By Kerry Cavanaugh and Rick Orlov STAFF WRITERS Ending a four-decade career as one of the most powerful figures in Los Angeles city government, Ronald Deaton announced Friday that he will retire as head of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Deaton has been offered a $267,500 retirement settlement and a life insurance policy that could cost $50,000 in exchange for leaving now. He could have stayed on medical disability for two years at his full $344,000-a-year salary, but the mayor would not have been able to appoint a new general manager. Deaton leaves a utility struggling to upgrade its aging infrastructure while under fire for its spending habits and rich employee contracts. Now the utility is trying to pass rate hikes – developed under Deaton’s leadership – that are proving a hard sell with neighborhood councils. The City Council next week will consider a plan to increase electricity rates by 9percent over the next three years and water rates 6percent over two years. Councilwoman Jan Perry, who chairs the council’s Energy and Environment Committee overseeing the DWP, said Deaton will be difficult to replace because of his skills as a career bureaucrat and a policymaker. “The job has an enormous challenge and is a complicated job to complete,” Perry said. “Whoever comes in is going to have to make a strong case to the council and, more importantly, to the public on the need to raise rates and do the work we need to upgrade what we have.” Plus, she said, the new manager will have to try to improve the DWP’s tarnished image and mend relations with the community. Deaton began his career with the city in 1965 as a DWP budget researcher. He moved on to the Chief Legislative Analyst’s Office, where he spent nearly four decades advising city leaders on varied issues, including police reform and power rates. Deaton solidified his role as adviser to the City Council during the decadelong debate – and 2002 vote – over San Fernando Valley secession. He emerged as a spokesman for the city – and sometimes the lightning rod for criticism among those seeking to break away. “From his first day on the job at the age of 22, this is a man who literally did it all for Angelenos,” Villaraigosa said in a statement. “He kept the lights on through fires and blackouts. He balanced the books. He helped build parks, police stations and libraries. He kept us united as one city.” Supported and mentored by then-council President John Ferraro, Deaton was often referred to as the 16th council member because of his ability to forge consensus among the council and his encyclopedic knowledge of the city, its operations and its budget. “He had the ability to convince council members to do things they may not have wanted to do,” said Councilman Greig Smith, who was a longtime council staffer before being elected. “He did it with intelligence and humor.” That ability to corral support and influence decision makers gave Deaton the unofficial title of most powerful bureaucrat in City Hall. In 2004, Deaton was appointed DWP general manager by then- Mayor James Hahn, who said he wanted a manager to clean up the troubled department. At the helm of the nation’s largest public utility, Deaton and the commission began to scrutinize expensive contracts and cut waste. And he attempted to lessen the influence on management of the DWP’s main union, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 18. “He tried to make an impact,” Smith said. “But he didn’t have the time to make the changes he needed to do.” kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Since then, there has been speculation that he would retire. Attorney H. David Nahai has even resigned from the DWP board in a move seen as preparation to be named the new general manager by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. On Friday, Deaton made his resignation official. “The challenges over the last several months are surpassed only by the difficult decision to retire from service in the city I hold so dear,” Deaton wrote in a letter to Villaraigosa. “What an honor it is to work alongside and live each day among many legendary figures of Los Angeles and the countless employees who work together for the betterment of this great city.” last_img read more
