Former Auburn standout Brad Lester arrested in Georgia on child pornography charge



Ex-Auburn running back Brad Lester pleads guilty to lesser charges after child-pornography arrest


Quote
After being charged with one count of unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance and one count of creating or possessing child pornography with the intent to distribute last month, former Auburn running back Brad Lester has reached a plea agreement with the Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office.

TMZ Sports reported Lester would receive a probationary sentence after pleading guilty this week to unlawful eavesdropping, theft by receiving stolen property and two counts of being a peeping tom.

On his Instagram account on Thursday, Lester posted: "Innocent of all charges and allegations on this bs up to Gwinnett county jail and a few other outside media reporters. Lies have no boundaries and getting out of control."

Lester was arrested on Dec. 21. He was alleged to have used his cellphone to film secretly a juvenile male in a bathroom stall at a restaurant in the Dacula, Georgia, area on Nov. 6.

Lester played at Auburn from 2004 through 2008. He ran for 1,689 yards and 19 touchdowns on 371 carries and caught 26 passes for 258 yards and three TDs. Lester rushed for a career-high 98 yards in Auburn's 17-10 victory over Alabama in 2007.

Quote
15-year-old suspect accused of killing two classmates and injuring about two dozen others at Marshall County High School has been identified in two news reports, and Courier Journal reports he was the son of a journalist who went to the school to cover the shooting.

Courier Journal reported Gabe Parker’s mother, Mary Garrison Minyard, went to the scene in her role as the editor of the Marshall County Daily Online, only to find out the alleged shooter was her son. One of her colleagues, Ann Beckett, told a Courier Journal reporter she took over the story.

Report: Former Texas A&M QB commit Tate Martell among prominent athletes who purchased fake Twitter followers


Quote
Martell, a former Texas A&M quarterback commit, was among those listed in a recent story from The New York Times about social media’s “black market” that detailed how individuals can collect numerous fake accounts for their Twitter followings...

Martell currently has more than 86,900 Twitter followers. The Class of 2017 member committed to the Aggies in August 2015 before his de-commitment the following May. He committed to Ohio State in June 2016.

As detailed by the Dallas Morning News’ Scott Bell, Martell has been involved with various antics on Twitter that created waves among Texas A&M fans.

Of course, it’s not illegal to buy Twitter followers. But it’s a strange thing to do, for sure.

Fan responds hilariously after Gus Malzahn mistakes him for recruit Calvin Anderson on Twitter


Quote
Former Rice offensive tackle Calvin Anderson is the hottest commodity on the college football transfer market right now. Blue bloods across the country such as Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan and Auburn are recruiting him for his final season of collegiate eligibility.

Anderson is so highly sought after that Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is even contacting other people with the same name on Twitter. Whoops.

Earlier this week, Malzahn sent a Twitter DM to a Florida State student named Calvin Anderson. And the student couldn’t have come up with a better response:

“Thank you for the interest coach Malzahn, you might have the wrong Calvin Anderson,” he wrote. “But if you want, I can send you a highlight tape of my outstanding intramural career. I think you’ll be impressed.”

The Oxford Eagle‏ @OxfordEagle

Headstone heist


Quote
Oxford Police Department was called to the former Mr. Feathers at 10 Thacker Road on Jan. 31 to take a theft report.

The management reported that an Ole Miss memorabilia headstone valued at $1,500 was taken from the property.

Investigators were able to identify 20-year-old Kelli Ann Camp of Oxford, 19-year-old Jose Meraz of Coldwater, 19-year-old Nathan Moss of Grenada, and 20-year-old Brandon Byrd of Southaven as the ones who allegedly stole the headstone.

The four surrendered themselves to the OPD on Tuesday and agreed to return the headstone.

They were all taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center where they were charged with grand larceny and booked on $1,500 bonds.

They would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for some meddling kids.

Alabama awarded patent for sideline privacy tent developed for Crimson Tide football


Quote
If you’ve watched a game during the past couple of seasons, you’ve seen the SidelinER, the sideline privacy tent that trainers and medical staff use to examine players during games. It was created and developed at Alabama, and the university announced on Monday that it’s been granted a patent covering the collapsible and portable design.

Specifically, United States patent 9,856,672 was issued on Jan. 2, the day after Alabama defeated Clemson 24-6 in the College Football Playoff semifinals. The application was dated Sept. 11, 2015.

“The patent clearly adds another layer of protection to what we feel like is a unique idea,” Jeff Allen, director of sports medicine at UA...

The idea came from a brainstorming session between Allen and Chuck Karr, dean of the College of Engineering, in May 2015, after coming up with a portable spray system used to cool players during practices in the Alabama heat.

Allen starting talking about being frustrated that he couldn’t even talk to a player without numerous cameras zooming in and 100,000-plus fans staring down at the trainer’s table.

“Imagine going to the doctor’s office and getting on the table in the lobby, in front of 30 or 40 people,” he told Bleacher Report in 2016. “Now imagine 100,000 people watching you.”

He took a white board and crudely drew what he thought could be ideal.

“I need something that’s going to lay down and come up almost like an umbrella, that’s going to cover this but be up and down in a [snap] real quick,” Allen said. “Could you build something like this?”
