• Hornets’ Taylor won’t join team amid assault probe


    CHARLOTTE: Charlotte Hornets forward Jeffery Taylor will not be involved in team activities as the NBA and police probe the domestic assault charge against him. The team, in a statement on Friday (Saturday in Manila), did not characterize its action as a suspension, and indicated Taylor agreed to the measure. Taylor was arrested and charged on Thursday in East Lansing, Michigan, just the latest unsavory incident to tarnish the reputation of US sports. The 25-year-old was arraigned and has been formally charged with one count of domestic assault, one count of assault and one count of malicious destruction of property, a police statement said.
