Welder charged for escaping from Police, relieving cop of weapon

first_imgA welder on Wednesday appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts slapped with five charges including robbery and escaping from lawful custody.Ceon Lampkin of Lot 33 Leopold Street, Georgetown, appeared before Magistrate Faith McGusty where the charges of assault, robbery and escaping lawful custody were read to him.It is alleged that Lampkin on April 16, 2019, at Main Street, Georgetown, attempted to commit a robbery on Jasira Allen.On the said day, at Main Street, Georgetown, the defendant allegedly robbed Janoy DeSantos of a handbag, among other items valued at $13,000. The prosecution’s case stated that the defendant tried to escape but was apprehended by public-spirited persons and handed over to the police.It was further alleged that on the same date, while being transported from Brickdam to Diamond Police Station, Lampkin jumped out of the police vehicle at High Street, Georgetown, and tried to escape. He was, however, apprehended a short distance away.During his re-apprehension, Lampkin allegedly assaulted two police officers and attempted to relieve one of the ranks of his service weapon. The man was then shot in his left side abdomen by the police rank during the incident.The 27-year-old was then taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.In court on Wednesday, Lampkin admitted to the escaping from lawful custody charge but denied the other charges.Police Prosecutor Ceon Blackman objected to bail on the grounds that the defendant is known to the law, he is a flight risk and the serious nature of the offences.In a bail application on his own behalf, Lampkin told the court that he was riding his bicycle along Main Street, Georgetown, when heard DeSantos scream “thief”. He said that was when he saw a few individuals running in his direction. He added that the persons began to beat him mercilessly and kept him until the police arrived.In a plea of mitigation, with respect to the escaping from lawful custody charge, Lampkin said that he escaped from the police vehicle since the ranks were hitting him to his head with their weapons. He denied that he attempted to relieve the officer of his weapon.Magistrate Faith McGusty upheld the prosecution’s submission and remanded the man to prison. The case will continue on May 15, 2019.last_img read more

23 days agoTeam of the Week: Leicester dominate; Jorginho fills Chelsea void; Ederson excellent

first_imgTeam of the Week: Leicester dominate; Jorginho fills Chelsea void; Ederson excellentby Eli Rubenstein Sturgess23 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveIt was another weekend of drama in the Premier League, with Dean Henderson’s rare blunder gifting Liverpool a 16th consecutive win.Manchester City once again took all 3 points, Leicester destroyed Newcastle to concretise themselves in the top 3 and Manchester United and Arsenal battled it out for a tough draw.We here at tribalfootball look at the top performers from Matchday 7 in the Tribal Football Team Of The Week.GOALKEEPER – EDERSON(Manchester City)The City goalkeeper was back to his best against Everton, proving why he belongs in the star-studded Guardiola line-up.In total the Brazilian made 6 saves, 2 of them terrific reflex stops to deny the imposing Yerry Mina from corners.CENTRE-BACK – VIRGIL VAN DIJK (Liverpool)The world’s best centre-back was again crucial for his side, keeping another clean sheet in the club’s 16th consecutive win.Keeping the ominous home side to just 2 shots on target, Van Dijk was huge in defence winning 11 aerial duels and 8 clearances.The Dutchman was also key to the sides offensive play making 12 (out of 16) accurate long balls.LEFT-BACK – JAN VERTONGHEN (Tottenham Hotspur)With a depleted 10-men-Spurs backed into a corner against an oncoming Southampton side, the Dutchman was instrumental in helping his side cling onto a 2-1 victory.Vertonghen won 4 aerial duels, made 3 interceptions and made 5 clearances in a strong performance.RIGHT-BACK – RICARDO PEREIRA (Leicester City)Twice in two weeks the Portuguese full-back finds himself in the team of the week, proving why he was made Leicester’s player of the season last time out.Bubbly as always bursting down the right flank, Ricardo was a constant threat to the Newcastle defence and was in everything for Leicester completing over 100 passes.However it was his 40 yard blistering run and left-foot long-shot goal that put the Foxes 1-0 up that stole the headlines.DEFENSIVE-MIDFIELD – WILFRED NDIDI (Leicester City)The Nigerian was at his supreme defensive best, making tackles and breaking down Newcastle offensive plays for fun.In total Ndidi made 9 tackles and 5 interceptions, furthering his reputation as the leagues top tackler, as well as scoring Leicester 5th goal with a lovely bit of control in 2nd half injury time.CENTRE-MIDFIELD – LUKA MILOVOJEVIC (Crystal Palace)Crystal Palace’s cool, calm and collected captain was key in the Eagles 2-0 win over Norwich.The Serbian midfielder was defensively solid making 6 tackles, and made his impact on the scoresheet, typically converting from the penalty spot.CENTRE-MIDFIELD – JORGINHO (Chelsea)With the repeat absence of N’Golo Kante, the Italian playmaker took control in the centre of Chelsea’s midfield, pulling the strings in the blues 2-0 win over Brighton.Completing 69 passes at an accuracy of 89.9%, Jorginho made 3 key passes and netted the first goal of the game, dispatching one of his trademark penalties.With his defensive duties on display as well, he made 2 tackles, 4 interceptions and 2 clearances in an all-round top performance.LEFT-MIDFIELD – JOHN MCGINN (Aston Villa)The sprightly Scotsman has been consistently one of the top performers for the Villians in the return to the top flight of English Football. In Villa’s tough 2-2 draw with Burnley, it was again McGinn who provided much needed attacking influence to his side.McGinn registered 4 dribbles and 4 shots on goal in total, and thought he had opened the scoring before his first goal was chalked off by VAR.McGinn however would not leave the match without his name on the scoresheet, smashing home a volley in the 79th minute. It was his third goal for the season.RIGHT-MIDFIELD – MATT DOHERTY (Wolverhampton Wanderers)In a much needed win for Wolves over struggling Watford, it was the unlikely source of stalwart Matt Doherty that produced a best on ground performance.The Irishman scored the first goal of the game, tapping home Neto’s delightful cross. He was also very involved in the second, charging down the wing and crossing the ball onto the head of Gibbs-White, whose shot deflected off Janmaat to make it 2-0.RIGHT-FORWARD- RIYAD MAHREZIt was another scintillating performance from the Algerian showboater, whose talent on the ball once again shone through in City’s 1-3 win over Everton.Mahrez appeared to be involved in all of City’s attacking play, fooling defenders for fun. In total, he had 5 shots on target (from 5 shots) and made 5 key passes all while operating at a pass accuracy of 91.4%Mahrez played the pass to De Bruyne in the first goal, scored a beautiful free kick for City’s 2nd, and it was his trickery that led to the 3rd.LEFT-FORWARD – JOSHUA KINGThe Norwegian is putting together another impressive start for the Cherries, with a man of the match performance in Bournemouth’s exciting 2-2 encounter with West Ham.King scored the first goal of the match, cleverly dispatching the loose end on Rico’s cross, making it 50 goals in English Leagues for the attacker.At the start of the 2nd half, King cleverly used the outside of his foot to play through Wilson who made the score 2-1.MANAGER OF THE WEEK – BRENDAN ROGERS (Leicester City)Brendan Roger’s Leicester side has been highly praised, with many pundits predicting their imminent rise into the top 6 after gutsy performances against some of the League’s top sides.However, their rise to the top has been halted by their inability to consistently beat the Premier League’s lesser teams, unlike that of the top sides.This assumption was thoroughly dismantled as Leicester ruthlessly tore apart the struggling Newcastle side.After a positive start with the scores at 1-0, the foxes stepped it up a level when the Magpies went down to 10 men, putting a further four goals past Dubravka in goals.It’s a performance like this that will get the top 6 teams shaking in their boots.GOAL OF THE WEEK – RICARDO PEREIRA (Leicester City)Is there a better right-back in the Premier League than Ricardo Pereira right now? pic.twitter.com/uDEZLVM3CR— Goal (@goal) September 30, 2019 TagsOpinionTeam of the WeekAbout the authorEli Rubenstein SturgessShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

JT Barrett loses summer scholarship following drunkdriving citation

OSU redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) runs with the ball during a game against Rutgers on Oct. 24 at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway Township, NJ . OSU won 49-7. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorWhen Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett was cited early Saturday morning for operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, he not only lost his starting spot for at least one game, but he also might have lost thousands of dollars.OSU coach Urban Meyer announced on Monday that in addition to a one-game suspension that Barrett will serve during Saturday’s home game against Minnesota, the Wichita Falls, Texas, native also had a scholarship taken away as punishment for the citation. “When a kid has an issue like that, there’s some type of punitive damage as far as missing a game or something, and then they forfeit their scholarship at some point,” Meyer said, adding that the scholarship revokement was something he has done in the past.The scholarship was later confirmed by an OSU spokesman to be Barrett’s summer aid — compensation given by OSU to athletes who are taking six or more academic credit hours during the summer term.The spokesman added that the team holds workouts over the summer, and players are required to take at least six credit hours to attend. The summer aid also covers housing and living expenses.According to OSU’s website, the out-of-state tuition rate for six credit hours in the Summer 2015 term was $6,676.10 for Barrett’s communication major, and that does not include the other cost-of-living expenses..Meyer confirmed that the suspension was not mandatory under OSU’s drug-and-alcohol policy, but the coach handed it down himself. He also said Barrett will undergo counseling through the university.Meyer said another punishment is still under consideration for the redshirt sophomore: the forfeiture of his team captaincy.“You know, I visited with some older players about that, my initial reaction was he might and let me just talk to some guys,” Meyer said. “But it was very strong with the leadership on the team to (not take it away). I’m still in my own mind going through that. And as of now, no.”Co-captain and senior left tackle Taylor Decker said Barrett had handled everything as he should since the citation, but he doesn’t know what the decision will ultimately be on the captaincy.“He took the responsibility,” Decker said. “He actually called me Sunday because he just wanted to explain to me what happened himself. I thought that was a really mature move by him.”Decker added that it is hard to believe that Barrett would be the one to get in trouble after witnessing his character for three years.“We haven’t really had a ton of issues on this team, and then in the bye week I thought we made it clear that we shouldn’t have any, and then for it to happen from a guy like him, I think (stunned) is a perfect word for it,” Decker said.Meyer said he initially learned about the incident from a 6 a.m. text message. He was so surprised by the news that he immediately called the person who texted him to confirm that he was reading it correctly.Barrett then visited Meyer’s house later on Saturday to talk to him in person about the situation. Meyer said he told the quarterback that he will now have to deal with something he never has before: a damaged reputation.“When they say, you’re too short, you don’t run fast enough, your arm strength isn’t good enough, you’re just an average quarterback, you can deal with that. You just outwork it,” Meyer said. “When they start attacking who you are, especially people who don’t know who you are, and I told him, that’s the toughest thing he’ll ever have to deal with is that now there’s some question as to who you are.”Meyer said Barrett drove to pick someone up to give him or her a ride home. The quarterback told his coach that he did not believe he was over the legal blood alcohol content limit of 0.08 percent to drive a motor vehicle, though the limit is 0.02 percent for an underage individual like the 20-year-old Barrett.As for the game against Minnesota, Meyer officially announced on Monday that it will be redshirt junior Cardale Jones getting the start at quarterback. Jones had started 10 consecutive games going back to last season’s Big Ten Championship Game before being pulled in favor of Barrett in OSU’s Week 8 game at Rutgers.Beyond Minnesota, Meyer said he hasn’t given the identity of the starting quarterback too much thought.“If he’s good enough and if he’s earns that right (he will start again),” Meyer said about Barrett. “I haven’t even gone that far yet.”The Buckeyes, with Jones returning to the starting quarterback spot, are set to take on Minnesota on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. at Ohio Stadium. read more

Barclay Pettrey split kicking duties

The story of Devin Barclay’s 2009 season was immortalized when he made the winning field goal in overtime against Iowa to make the Buckeyes the outright Big Ten champions. But the walk-on and former soccer player once again shared the spotlight with starting kicker Aaron Pettrey at the Rose Bowl Game.Barclay took over the season after Pettrey went out with a knee injury against New Mexico State on Oct. 31 that required surgery.The second-string kicker had a rough start, missing a field goal in the second half of Ohio State’s 45-0 win over the Aggies. However, he quickly recovered and became a solid contributor to the Buckeye special teams unit.When Pettrey was deemed healthy enough to play in his final game as a Buckeye, coach Jim Tressel decided to give him the chance while still rewarding Barclay for his regular season performance.“It was two days ago that he told me we were going to be sharing kicks,” Barclay said of getting the news from Tressel. “He was going to be taking extra points and field goals outside of 42 yards.”True to the plan, Barclay kicked and made three field goals from 19, 30 and 38 yards out, while Pettrey made a field goal from 45 yards in the second quarter to put the Buckeyes up 16-10. Barclay also kicked all six kickoffs.Though Barclay said that it was unfortunate that Pettrey was injured, he said he has benefited from stepping in while Pettrey was out.“It’s definitely a great opportunity to get some confidence for next year,” Barclay said of when he will likely step into the full-time starting spot. “I can take this and look back on some of the things I need to work on.”Barclay also echoed many of his teammates when he said that playing in front of over 93,000 people was an experience unlike any other.“When you get that kind of win and you actually get to be a part of the win, it holds its own,” Barclay said. “I’m just very glad that [Pettrey] and I got to play together in the Rose Bowl.”Pettrey, who is a senior, is set to play in an All-Star game in February, Tressel said, and is targeting a path to the NFL. read more

Benzemas brilliance secures Santiago Solari his job

first_imgWith another stellar solo performance by Karim Benzema in Vigo, Santiago Solari moves one step closer to keeping his job at Real Madrid.It’s official, Real Madrid is back in top form thanks to the revival project that manager Santiago Solari has completed in order to recover players like Karim Benzema.The French striker was lost during the final days of Julen Lopetegui as the manager, he started the season un top form but something happened along the way and the Frenchman seemed affected by the collective mistakes of the squad.Now under Santiago Solari, Benzema is back to his best form as he proved with the first two goals that Real Madrid scored against Celta de Vigo.The first one was a delightful finish after Luka Modric set him up with a long-range assist, Karim showed us what a perfect first touch he has and made a beautiful finish in front of the goalkeeper.The second goal didn’t come until the second half, Benzema did it again with an interesting dribble inside the box and a finish that brought an own goal from Cabral on the rebound.Real Madrid was already winning the match by two goals after one hour, but Hugo Mallo made the game more interesting with a beautiful volley that gave Celta a fighting chance.➕3⃣ Make that four wins on the spin! #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/jWKg4KcYCc— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 11, 2018Real Madrid held the result until the last 10 minutes of the match, as Odriozola received a nasty knock on his knee inside the box and the referee awarded a penalty for Los Blancos.Sergio Ramos was the man who took the shot and he did it again, another Panenka-styled attempt that the goalkeeper wasn’t able to save and thus Los Blancos were winning it 3-1.But there were still more goals coming, two of them that came during the final minutes of the match.Dani Ceballos scored Real Madrid’s fourth with an absolute screamer from outside the box, but he helped Celta out in their second goal after deviating the shot that Mendez took from outside the box as well.David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.This result gives Real Madrid 20 points, it puts them in a very comfortable position only four points behind leaders FC Barcelona.But the main topic for today was the fact that Santiago Solari was able to recover the squad completely, the Benzema performance may have won him the job as the manager on a permanent basis, at least until the end of the season.⚽✨ PA-NEN-KA! 👇 @SergioRamos pic.twitter.com/nzE9ZXmF1Z— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 11, 2018While there still hasn’t been an announcement from the club, we can expect them to give the job to Solari during this week when all the international players travel to represent their countries in the last fixture of 2018 for all the national teams.Solari did everything right during this time, he proved that he is qualified to at least keep this squad competitive and he also proved that he has a great connection with all the players.Karim Benzema is not the only one who has responded, pretty much all the other players did their part and they all feel important for the club again.Santiago did save Vinicius on the bench for this match, he decided to give other young players a chance and they responded very well to the challenge.Dani Ceballos is the best example of this, but the young Brazilian can expect a lot more playing time from now on at Real Madrid if Solari ultimately stays as the manager.Florentino Perez has a decision to make, but members of the board already came out to endorse the Argentine’s permanence in the club.We’ll see how everything goes for Santiago, he already did his part.Do you think Real Madrid will announce Santiago Solari as the manager or do you think they will call someone else? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more
