LOS ANGELES, Calif. Cheap Nike Shoes From China . - San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was arrested Sunday at Los Angeles International Airport after authorities said he became belligerent during a security screening and threatened that he had a bomb. The 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1 and became unco-operative with the process, airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said. She said he told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became unco-operative and was taken into custody. A witness video posted on TMZ.com shows Smith exchanging words with an officer as he was being handcuffed and escorted out of the gate area. Smith was booked for investigation of making a false bomb threat. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said anyone who makes a bomb threat at an airport is potentially subject to federal charges, although no such charges have been filed against Smith. A message seeking comment from Smiths agent wasnt immediately returned. With the arrest, Smith is involved in three pending criminal cases. "We are disappointed to learn of the incident today involving Aldon Smith," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "As this is a pending legal matter and we are still gathering the pertinent facts, we will have no further comment." A fearsome pass-rushing specialist, Smith took a five-game leave of absence from the 49ers last season to undergo treatment for substance abuse. He rejoined the team Nov. 5. Smith played in a 27-7 home loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 22, two days after he was arrested and jailed on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession. After the game, he publicly apologized for his behaviour and later announced he would leave for treatment. Leading up to the playoffs in early January, Smith said during an interview with The Associated Press he was encouraged by the strides he had made to better himself off the football field that put life — and his work — in perspective. He said at the time he hadnt had any alcohol since before his Sept. 20 DUI arrest, and that he wasnt craving it. When he rejoined the team Nov. 5, he insisted he was on the path to lifelong sobriety stuck by that statement. His teammates rallied around him in support of his rehab and, later, his return to the team. Smith emerged as one of the NFLs most-feared pass rushers in 2012. He had a franchise-record 19.5 sacks that year, but failed to record a sack in his final six games including the teams post-season Super Bowl run. Smith finished with 8 1/2 sacks and 34 tackles in 11 games last season, making eight starts. In November, Smith pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon, stemming from a June 2012 party at his home. Investigators say several shots were fired, two partygoers were injured and Smith was stabbed. In the subsequent investigation, prosecutors say detectives found five unregistered weapons in Smiths house, including two Bushmaster rifles and an Armalite AR-10T. They say those are assault weapons illegal to possess under California law. Smith and former teammate Delanie Walker were named in a lawsuit last September filed in Santa Clara County Superior Court by a Northern California man who said he was shot at a party at Smiths house on June 29, 2012. The players charged a $10 admission and $5 per drink, the lawsuit said. Smith and now-Tennessee Titans tight end Walker were allegedly intoxicated on Smiths balcony when they fired gunshots in the air while trying to end the party, the lawsuit said. Smith, selected seventh overall in the 2011 draft out of Missouri, had previously been arrested on suspicion of DUI in January 2012 in Miami shortly after the 49ers lost in the NFC championship game. This is the latest in a long list of legal issues for 49ers players the past two years — and recently, too. The Niners, who lost to the rival and eventual champion Seattle Seahawks in the NFC championship game, have made nearly as much news away from the field as they have in free agency this off-season. On Thursday, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was one of three NFL players named in a Miami police report involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there, though no one has been charged with a crime. Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette — a former 49er — were with the woman at a Miami hotel where Lockette lives, according to the Miami Police Department report. The police say its too early to determine whether a crime was committed. Late last month in San Jose, 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver was arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run and reckless driving after he drove a car into a bicyclist and fled. He is the player who underwent sensitivity training after his anti-gay remarks leading up to the Super Bowl after the 2012 season. He has done outreach to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Last summer, another starting linebacker, Ahmad Brooks, was investigated by the Santa Clara County District Attorneys office on allegations that Brooks repeatedly hit a teammate on the head with a beer bottle. No assault charges were filed because of insufficient evidence. According to police, Brooks hit then-teammate Lamar Divens with the bottle three times and then punched him in the face during an early morning argument June 8. Divens sustained a 3-inch cut on his forehead. Another member of the defence, Demarcus Dobbs, was suspended for Week 1 last season for his own arrest on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession in 2012.

Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points to lead No. 6 Villanova to a dominating 77-59 victory over Georgetown on Saturday, preserving the Wildcats hopes of a No. Cheap Nike Shoes . Fans holding laudatory signs started showing up at Yankee Stadium when the gates opened at 4 p.m. Monday, an hour early in order to give them a chance to watch the New York captain take batting practice.MELBOURNE, Australia - When Americans Madison Keys and Madison Brengle won their first-round matches at the Australian Open, Keys was asked at a news conference if she knew anyone else with the unusual name Madison.I think its actually a pretty popular name for younger people, the 19-year-old Keys said, causing some laughter in the room. Walking through grocery stores, I hear it a lot. But Madison (and I) are a few of the older ones. I think its more like 5 and 6 year olds.On Saturday, Keys and Brengle both won again to set up a meeting in the fourth round, ensuring at least one American — and one Madison — will move on to the quarterfinals.Were obviously representing our name pretty well, Keys said.With new coach Lindsay Davenport watching from the stands at Rod Laver Arena, Keys matched big-hitting Czech Petra Kvitova stroke for stroke and broke the two-time Wimbledon champions serve five times to advance with a 6-4, 7-5 win.A 5-foot-10 (1.78-meter) power hitter with good footwork and speed, Keys has an all-court game that has drawn comparisons to Davenport. Now, with Davenport and her husband Jon Leach as her coaches, she got the breakthrough win at a major that was long expected of her.Obviously this is my first time in the second week of a Grand Slam. I feel good about it, she said. But at the same time its one of those things where I want more. ... So Im not really getting ahead of myself and letting myself get too excited over this.While Keys has the celebrity coach and has been tipped as a future star, the 24-yeaar-old Brengle is more of a late bloomer. Cheap Nike Shoes Authentic. A speedy counterpuncher from Dover, Delaware, Brengle has played almost exclusively on the second-tier womens pro tour. She showed enough talent as a teenager to earn a few wild cards to slams, but after the 2008 French Open she failed to qualify for another one for more than six years.Meanwhile, other young Americans such as Keys, Christina McHale and Sloane Stephens passed her by.I played Caroline (Wozniacki) a bunch in juniors and she got to No. 1 and you see that it can be done, Brengle said. But at the same time, everybody kind of progresses at their own pace so I dont think you want to compare yourself too much with other players.Brengle has finally started to string together good results in the last few months at the same time shes been dealing with a serious health concern. Two days before the U.S. Open, she discovered a strange spot on her leg and it was later diagnosed as cancerous.They found it really, really early. We took care of it, she said. I have a nice scar on my leg to show for it.Shes been applying and reapplying sunblock during every match in Australia — and continuing to win. On Saturday, she beat fellow American Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-2 to set up the fourth-round match with Keys.One of them will make the quarters — the first American besides Serena Williams to do so at a major since Stephens made two in 2013.Everybody kind of pushes each other, Brengle said. Im really, really optimistic with how American womens tennis is looking. ' ' '
