Brown was released on bail following his arraignment, but had to surrender his passport. So, no visiting the strip clubs in Fort Erie next time he's home, and 48 points on our list.
Meanwhile, across town . . .
Another basketball figure in Buffalo, Canisius College assistant coach Lazare Adingono, was arrested for allegedly beating his four-year-old son with a belt. Apparently there was some kind of incident in January involving Adingono and the youngster, prompting his wife to take the child to Providence. (Adingono played for the URI Rams.) The child was treated at a Rhode Island hospital for injuries on his neck, back, and arms; local authorities were contacted; and word spread to Buffalo, where police commenced an investigation.
Adingono, a native of Cameroon, was charged with felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child, and released on $50,000 bond. Beating a child with a belt so badly that he needs to be hospitalized makes you an asshole of the very highest order, so give him 91 points and put him in the running for our worst guy this year so far. Tough times for a city that doesn't need more of those.
When he's not googling "ick, Damone" and "Adingono ate my baby," Matt Taibbi writes for Rolling Stone. He can be reached firstname.lastname@example.org.
