  Pro Basketball Hall of Fame player Dennis Rodman was accused of slapping someone at a rooftop bar in Delray Beach, Fla., according to a police report.Jeff Soulouque, the alleged victim of an "open-handed smack" from Rodman, wants to press charges, according to the report. He said the alleged incident was unprovoked and that he sustained a corneal abrasion and facial swelling. No charges have been filed over the May 17 altercation."It was out of nowhere," Souloueque said, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "He just hit me, and I was blindsided, and he started charging me."Rodman, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hasn't been arrested or charged. His attorney, Lorne Berkeley, denied Soulouque's claim."Once a thorough investigation is completed, the incident will not be substantiated," Berkeley said.Rodman was celebrating his 58th birthday party at Buddha Sky Bar in Delray Beach. Soulouque said he was talking to someone who was standing next to Rodman when the Hall of Famer turned around and struck him, according to the Sun Sentinel.Soulouque, 30, said Rodman apologized and offered to take him to dinner the next day.Police said Thursday they are still investigating the incident.
  Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo vowed that the Bucks weren't going to fold against the Toronto Raptors and declared the Bucks the "best team in the league."The Raptors handed the Bucks their third consecutive loss in the NBA Eastern Conference finals on Thursday night. It marked the first time this season that Milwaukee lost three in a row.Despite Milwaukee's struggles, Antetokounmpo told reporters that the Bucks won't lose faith."We're not gonna fold," Antetokounmpo said. "We're the best team in the league. We're gonna go in, give it everything we got. We can't fold. We're gonna come back to Milwaukee being pissed."The Raptors grabbed a 3-2 series lead with a 105-99 win in Game 5. The Bucks held a 2-0 advantage in the series, but quickly fell into a hole.Antetokounmpo, who tweaked his ankle late in the fourth quarter of Game 5, had 24 points, six assists and six rebounds in the contest. It was the same ankle he injured during the regular season.The injury forced Antetokounmpo off the court during key moments in the final quarter. After the game, he said his ankle felt "fine" and he "doesn't remember" what happened that led to the ailment.Antetokounmpo is averaging 25.9 points, 12.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.9 blocks per game in the playoffs.Game 6 is Saturday night at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
  San Jose Sharks veteran center Joe Thornton is undecided on retirement or a possible return for his 22nd NHL season."I got to talk to [coach] Pete [DeBoer] and [general manager] Doug [Wilson], but we'll see," Thornton told reporters Thursday during his exit interview. "I haven't made any decision. I feel like I can still play, that's for sure. I haven't made any decision at all yet."Thornton said if he chooses to return, it'll only be with the Sharks."I'm a Shark," Thornton said. "There's one team, and it's here."Thornton, who turns 40 on July 2, played on a one-year contract this season and could become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He has played with the Sharks since they acquired him in a trade with the Boston Bruins, who selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1997 NHL Draft, on Nov. 30, 2005.The veteran forward had 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 73 regular-season games. He added 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 19 playoff games this season.Thornton has 1,024 points (244 goals, 780 assists) in 1,034 career games with the Sharks."He can have all the time he needs to make whatever decision's right for him, but we love him," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson told reporters. "I've been in this business a long time. I've never met anyone like him and we cherish the days we have him. Whatever decision he makes, we're there for him."The St. Louis Blues ended the Sharks' season with a win in Game 6 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night. The Blues play the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night.
  Golden State superstar Kevin Durant disagreed with the idea that the Warriors are a better team without him.Durant, speaking to the media on Friday for the first time since suffering a right calf strain in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets, told reporters that the Warriors playing better without him in the lineup is "not facts.""As a player, I think about that. I'm just like, that's not true. That's not facts when it comes from a basketball perspective," Durant said. "The competitive side of me -- I also like to talk basketball as well -- so if you're going to say something like that, I'm going to engage in it. So it's all fun, it's all cool, but I know the real."Durant also addressed the notion that some don't consider him as part of the Warriors' collective unit. Notably, the star forward corrected a reporter when asked how "their" play has been since his injury, responding with "Our play?""It's been that way since I got here," Durant said. "It's been that way since I got here -- 'It's the Warriors and KD.' I understand that, and I felt like my teammates and the organization know exactly what I've done here off and on the court to become a part of this culture, stamp my flag in this culture and organization."I know what I bring to the team, but I also know a lot of people on the outside don't like to see us together, and I get it."Since Durant's injury, the Warriors haven't lost in the postseason, leading to chatter that Durant is a luxury and the team doesn't need the superstar to win a third consecutive NBA championship.Following their sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference finals, Golden State has gone 31-1 in games which Durant sat out but star guard Stephen Curry played."It's hard to get away from that because I watch the game, and you watch the lead-up to the games, and that's all everybody is talking about," Durant said. "My perspective is just, like, I want to focus on rehab, but I also want to be a fan of my teammates. I want to enjoy my teammates from a different view."A lot of those guys sit in a chair and cheer for the rest of the guys, the starting guys, and now I get an opportunity to do the same thing. I turn the TV, and since I can't travel with the team, all I hear is the noise."The Warriors announced Thursday that Durant is "unlikely" to play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on May 30 against the winner of the Toronto Raptors-Milwaukee Bucks series. The team hasn't cleared him for on-court work yet.Durant is averaging 34.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game in the playoffs.
  A Tennessee jury found a man guilty of 43 charges, including one count of first-degree murder, for a shooting at a church in Antioch.Emanuel Samson, 27, faced the murder charge for the death of Melanie Crow, whom he shot while she walked through the parking lot of Burnette Chapel Church of Christ on Sept. 24, 2017. He then walked into the church and opened fire, injuring seven other people.In addition to the murder charge, the jury found him guilty of multiple counts of attempted murder, civil rights intimidation and aggravated assault.Prosecutors said they're seeking life in prison without the possibility of parole for Samson.Revenge was considered as a motive after police found a note in Samson's car mentioning the shooting by white supremacist Dylann Roof on June 18, 2015, which killed nine people at the Mother Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C.Though he is a legal U.S. resident, officials said Samson, a native of Sudan, is not a citizen.
  A federal judge issued an injunction Friday blocking Mississippi's new "heartbeat" abortion law two months after the governor signed it.U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves issued the order a little more than a month before the law was set to go into effect. The law bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, usually between six weeks and eight weeks of pregnancy."Here we go again," Reeves wrote in his order. "Mississippi has passed another law banning abortions prior to viability. The latest interpretation bans abortions in Mississippi after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is as early as six weeks."The law is one of the strictest in the nation as it only makes exceptions if the abortion would prevent the mother's death or if there is a "serious risk of the substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function of the woman."Reeves' order was in response to a lawsuit filed by the Center for Reproductive Rights."Once again the rule of law has prevailed over political ploys to control personal health decisions," the New York-based organization said. "We'll fight tooth and nail to make sure all of these bans meet the same fate."Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood said his office plans to fight the ruling."The 5th Circuit has not squarely addressed this issue, and I intend to appeal this order which enjoined the effective date of the feral heartbeat bill," he said in a statement.The ruling comes as a number of states pass or consider laws to limit abortion. Alabama signed the most restrictive yet, a near-total ban on abortions unless the woman's life is at risk. There are no exceptions for rape or incest.Legislatures in Georgia, Kentucky, Missouri and Ohio passed so-called "heartbeat" bills, banning abortions after eight weeks, earlier this year.Leana Wen, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, said recent laws to ban abortions is part of an effort to challenge the Supreme Courtruling on Roe vs. Wade.DV.load("https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6025982-Jackson-Women-s-Health-Organization-vs-Thomas.js", responsive: true,sidebar: false,text: false,container: "#DV-viewer-6025982-Jackson-Women-s-Health-Organization-vs-Thomas");Jackson Women's Health Organization vs. Thomas Dobbs (PDF)Jackson Women's Health Organization vs. Thomas Dobbs (Text)
  A Colorado man accused of killing his fiancee pleaded not guilty Friday to charges related to her death and disappearance.Teller County District Court Judge Scott Sells scheduled the trial for Patrick Frazee, 32, for Oct. 28, court spokesman Rob McCallum said in a tweet.Frazee faces one count of first-degree murder, three counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder and one count of first-degree felony murder for the death of Kelsey Berreth.Berreth was reported missing Dec. 2, more than a week after she was last seen grocery shopping with her 1-year-old daughter. Her mother told police she was having a difficult time getting in touch with her daughter.Krystal Jean Lee Kenney, an Idaho nurse who said she had a romantic relationship with Frazee, told police he asked her to kill Berreth multiple times. He allegedly asked Kenney to clean up his Woodland Park, Colo., home after he beat Berreth to death with a baseball bat on Thanksgiving day.Kenney said she brought gloves, a protective body suit and trash bags and used cleaner to wipe down walls, a couch, a refrigerator, the floors and chairs. She later showed authorities several locations where she intentionally left blood splatter to lead them to evidence.Kenney said she watched as Frazee burned Berreth's body two days after her death in a cattle water trough on his ranch.
