• NBA player Sefolosha acquitted in incident with NY police


    NEW YORK: Swiss NBA player Thabo Sefolosha was acquitted on Friday (Saturday in Manila) of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct during a confrontation with police outside a Manhattan night club in which his leg was broken. The New York jury handed down the not-guilty verdict after deliberating for less than an hour, acquitting the Atlanta Hawks forward on all counts. Prosecutors had offered the 31-year-old a plea deal of no more than one day community service if he pleaded guilty. But he rejected it, wanting to prove his innocence.
