LIVORNO PLAYERS and fans gathered Sunday at the Italian soccer team's stadium to pay their respects, a day after midfielder Piermario Morosini , 25, collapsed and died after suffering cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara. A defibrillator was used on the player, who also had his heart massaged, before an ambulance arrived on the field to take him to a hospital where doctors tried unsuccessfully to revive him for about 90 minutes. An autopsy will be carried out Monday, and may reveal whether a delay in the ambulance getting to Morosini could have contributed to his death.

Cop Car is a prairie noir that takes the flat landscape of the Western plains and turns it, as so many movies have, into a place of meanness and menace. The movie starts innocently enough: two middle-school boys (James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford) on a walkabout on empty ranchland, daring each other to curse, looking for arrowheads and snake holes. What they find instead is an abandoned patrol car in the middle of nowhere. They approach tentatively, but the wariness soon ebbs.

He's been arrested for lying, forced to quit his job as a state trooper and investigated as a possible murder suspect. But through it all, ex-state trooper Harold Ryan Hutchinson sticks to the story that caused all his trouble - that he saw a marked police car parked behind Aimee Willard's the morning she was abducted and murdered. "He maintains that he's innocent of the charges against him and that he didn't give any false information," said his lawyer, Ari Moldovsky. "Unfortunately, Ryan's been put in the position of a scapegoat for the investigation not moving as quickly as people would like it. " Hutchinson agreed to go into a pretrial probationary program because of the intense publicity and the expense of defending himself, his lawyer said.

There are car thefts and there are car thefts. This one involved the taking of a police patrol car, police say, and the alleged thief was arrested a short time later - sitting next to the car and calmly reading a newspaper. He then told police he was an FBI agent, detectives said, but his name - Lawrence Cave, 53, of Tioga Street near 21st, - didn't show up on the FBI's personnel charts. It all began at 4:05 a.m. yesterday. Patrol Car No. 512, a 5th District car being loaned to the 39th District, was parked by 39th District officer Vince Oaks on Venango Street near 21st, while Oaks helped a rescue squad give aid to someone inside a home there.

"EITHER YOU buy these or I take your car, 'cause it's unregistered. " Officer Matthew Zagursky didn't mince words Thursday when he flashed tickets to the Hero Thrill Show, a fundraiser that supports the families of fallen officers and firefighters, to two men after pulling them over. And yesterday, hours after a recording of that exchange went viral, Commissioner Charles Ramsey didn't either. "No part of that video is good," Ramsey said of the footage, which also shows Zagursky spouting homophobic slurs.

RUDOLPH KEITT Jr., the man who was shot by police last month after allegedly hitting several cops with his car, has been found incompetent to face his preliminary hearing, a prosecutor told a judge yesterday. A forensic psychiatrist has recommended that Keitt be committed for mental-health treatment for 60 days, Assistant District Attorney Jacob Sand said. An Aug. 11 status date was scheduled for the next briefing on Keitt's mental competency. Keitt, 47, who is being held in a city jail in the Philadelphia Prison System complex in Holmesburg, is expected to be transferred to its mental-health wing.
