CHULA VISTA, Ca. -- Police say a California youth football coach was arrested during a game after allegedly attacking a parent who was rendered unconscious when he hit the ground.
The coach, Saivaauli Savaiinea, 32, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of felony battery on a parent, 32, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Police said the two men were with opposing peewee-league teams from Chula Vista and got into an argument when Savaiinea apparently thought he overheard parent Mark Cannon trying to recruit the best player from the coach's team.
SAN JOSE, Ca. -- A young woman who claims she was gang-raped by eight members of a California college baseball team should be granted $7.5 million in damages, her lawyer says.
The woman is seeking damages in a civil case against two members of the De Anza College baseball team, claiming she was raped at an off-campus party on March 4, 2007 when she was 17 years old, the San Jose Mercury reported Thursday.
No criminal charges were filed in the case, as the California Attorney General's office determined everyone at the party, including the young woman, was drinking and there was insufficient evidence to charge anyone present with a crime, the newspaper said.
Elected officials should know better than to blame the victim of a sex crime.

"There was an article about an 11 year old girl who was gangraped in Texas by 18 young men because she was dressed like a 21-year-old prostitute,"
