Tennessee Titans running back Shonn Greene faces a series of charges after trying to avoid a parking ticket, police in Tennessee said Saturday. The police department in Franklin, Tennessee, south of Nashville said in a release that the NFL player was arrested and his bond set at $2,000 after the incident on Friday, which ended with him charged with resisting a stop after leaving the scene of an incident, a handicapped parking violation, driving on a revoked or suspended license and reckless driving. According to police, a parking enforcement officer was in the process of writing a ticket for Greene's car for parking illegally in a spot reserved for handicapped drivers when the incident occurred. Police said Greene "showed no regard for the parking enforcement officer's safety, or the safety of others, as he recklessly evaded the parking enforcement officer over what would have been a simple parking ticket."
PGA commissioner Tim Finchem and the LPGA both came out solidly Saturday in support of the firing of Ted Bishop as PGA of America president after "inappropriate" remarks on Twitter. Bishop called British golfer Ian Poulter a "lil girl" on Twitter and a Facebook posting, prompting the PGA of America board of directors to remove Bishop, who later apologized for his comments. "The PGA of America's quick and decisive action sent a strong message, reinforcing a consistent belief that with so many positive gains being made among golf's leading organizations, there is simply no room, nor willingness, to take a step backwards," the LPGA women's tour said Saturday. "We understand and respect the PGA of America's decision regarding Ted Bishop," Finchem said.
Jessica Korda and Lee-Anne Pace were tied for the lead Saturday at the LPGA Blue Bay Championship in China. South Africa's Pace (67, 66) and Korda (66, 67) of the United States are level on 133 going into Sunday's final round, with South Korea's Chella Choi a shot behind. Korda's day started badly with a double bogey on the first hole, but she did not drop a single shot after that. "I would say the putt on 18 that I made to save par was definitely good to bring the momentum that I had on the last 17 holes, to bring it in for tomorrow," said Korda.
Jonathan Williams rushed for a career-high 153 yards and had two touchdowns, and even 350-pound offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola had a part in the fun as Arkansas rolled to a 45-17 win over Alabama-Birmingham on Saturday.
