Taylor was charged with aggravated sexual assault, while Jones and Behling were charged with sexual assault. The two basketball players are said to have left the state and returned to their hometowns in South Carolina, while Jones was busted again last week for a bail-jumping charge connected with a previous assault rap, for which he was on probation. All three players are facing additional discipline from TCU.
What's up with Doc
And, finally, a quick update on sports-crime hall-of-famer Dwight Gooden, who was released this week after seven months in the clink. Doc’s first act of freedom was to hit a McDonald’s. “You know me,” he said, “I’ve always gotta eat.” Although Doc had reported earlier that he was being treated like an “animal” in jail — a stint that included a 10-day stay in solitary — he said upon release that it hadn’t been so bad. Doc is clean now and seems upbeat; but beware: he has a history of blowing up around spring training, which is only a few months away. Let’s hope he stays clear of Florida and gives it a rest this year . . .
