New Jersey Nets forward Eddie Griffin spent last night in jail after he allegedly violated his bail terms from a felony assault charge. Harris County prosecutors say Griffin broke curfew restrictions when he attempted to assault a man outside a gas station around 3 a.m. on Dec. 23 despite being under a 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew, the Houston Chronicle reported. Griffin, a Roman Catholic High product, had his bond revoked and a hearing is set for today. Jane Waters, assistant district attorney, said prosecutors are looking into Griffin's bizarre incident at the Renaissance Hotel in Rutherford, N.J., on Jan. 25, when he knocked on the door of a hotel guest looking for a party he had been invited to by a couple of girls.

THOSE OF YOU still holding on to those Roger Clemens futures may want to sell off now before the bottom drops out. In a last-ditch attempt to salvage his chances for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, Clemens staged one of the most bizarre news conferences ever. Accompanied by his lawyer, Rusty Hardin, he again denied the claims of his former trainer, Brian McNamee, who alleges that he injected Clemens with performance- enhancing drugs on 16 occasions. Monday should have been one of those occasions.

Roger Clemens' lead attorney told the New York Times that his firm is launching its own investigation into allegations the seven-time Cy Young Award winner used steroids and human-growth hormone.

"At this stage we have uncovered a lot of logical people who we thought Mitchell was going to talk to but never talked to him or his investigators.

WASHINGTON - Roger Clemens was either the victim of a pathological liar or someone who spun a web of lies to protect his legacy as one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history. The divergent portraits emerged during closing arguments Tuesday in the former star's perjury trial. Clemens is accused of lying to Congress in 2008 when he denied having taken performance-enhancing drugs, and jurors are expected to begin deliberating in earnest Wednesday afternoon. For Clemens, whose reputation has already been so badly marred by the allegations that his election to the Hall of Fame is unlikely, the trial carries real risk: He faces potential prison time if convicted.

WASHINGTON - Roger Clemens' former catcher with the Toronto Blue Jays testified Wednesday that he had seen vitamin B12 "shots lined up ready to go" for players, a claim also made by Clemens and for which he was charged with obstructing Congress. Clemens is charged with obstruction of Congress, perjury and making false statements for denying to Congress in 2008 that he ever used steroids or human growth hormone. The obstruction count contains 13 allegedly false statements, including Clemens' assertion in his congressional deposition that "four or five needles" of vitamin B12 would be "already lined up ready to go" in the trainers' room after games.

This must the be the Golden Age for baseball senior citizens.

Bush was barely two months into his presidency, Rain Man was the No. 1 movie at the box office and future author Jose Canseco was the reigning American League MVP. Vizquel, a native of Venezuela has played in four different decades with six different teams, has 11 Gold Gloves, 2,842 career hits and is a three-time all-star.

WASHINGTON - While it's an open question whether jurors think Roger Clemens used performance-enhancing substances, they now know one thing for certain: His wife sure did. She said it happened on a whim, inspired by a newspaper article with the headline: "Boomers believe they've found a fountain of youth in a syringe. " She said it happened in her posh master bathroom. She pulled up her shirt so that Brian McNamee could pinch her skin and inject her in the belly. No one else was there, and she didn't even tell her husband it was happening.

For a few hours on the witness stand Thursday, former Houston Astros manager Phil Garner told one great Roger Clemens story after another. About Clemens working out in a flak jacket with 60 pounds of weights; Clemens yelling at himself; and Clemens pitching smarter. Testifying for the defense in Clemens' perjury trial, Garner, who managed Clemens from 2004 to 2006, enthralled the jury with tales about the seven-time Cy Young Award winner. "He continued to have great success, but for different reasons," Garner said.

Sure, Colorado pitcher Jamie Moyer is, like, a gazillion years old, so everything he does is a record, but this feat is really astounding. When the former Phillie drove in two runs with an infield single in the fourth inning in Colorado's 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday night, he became the oldest player in major-league history with an RBI, at 49 years and 180 days in age. That breaks the record of fellow methuselah Julio Franco, who...

Toronto's Brett Lawrie was suspended for four games after he angrily threw his batting helmet Tuesday - and it bounced off umpire Bill Miller. Lawrie, outraged at ball and strike calls, is appealing and can play until there is a decision. The 22-year-old was in the starting lineup Wednesday night against the New York Yankees - with the same umpiring crew in town. Miller was at third base. Lawrie received the loudest cheer in pregame introductions and the umpires were booed when their names were posted on the scoreboard.

A FEDERAL JUDGE ruled yesterday that Roger Clemens must face another trial on charges of lying about drug use, although the judge criticized prosecutors' mishandling of evidence during a July mistrial and questioned the fairness of making the former star pitcher pay to defend himself twice. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton set a new trial for April 17. Clemens attorney Rusty Hardin said he may appeal Walton's decision. Walton said if Clemens wants to do that, he must request an expedited review by the appeals court to avoid more delays in the case.

WASHINGTON - One minute Roger Clemens was on trial for his freedom. Then, on just the second day of testimony, it was suddenly all over and the former baseball star was outside signing autographs for fans. Almost as soon as it began, Clemens' perjury trial ended yesterday - in a mistrial the judge blamed on prosecutors and said a "first-year law student" would have known to avoid. U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton left the question of a new trial up in the air. But he called a halt to the trial under way after prosecutors showed jurors evidence that he had ruled out - videotaped revelations that a teammate had said he'd told his wife Clemens confessed to using a drug.
