Oakland defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was arrested Sunday morning on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief after allegedly causing a commotion at a neighbor's house while inebriated. We probably wouldn't even be discussing his arrest right now ... if it weren't for that unfortunate mug shot . Now I don't want to make fun of the man -- like I said, not his finest moment. I'll just describe the mug shot as "unflattering" and let it go at that. Bryant, who was held on $1,000 bond after being booked at 9:24 a.m. Sunday, has 10 1/2 sacks in four seasons with the Raiders and is due to be an unrestricted free agent on March 12. Can you imagine potential employers searching for information about Bryant online and that's what pops onto their screens?

WASHINGTON - President Obama announced the end of “an important chapter” late Friday night in the Boston Marathon bombing with the arrest of a fugitive suspect. But Obama said the search is just beginning to find out why the attack was launched and who may have been involved. “The families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers,” he said, explicitly classifying the alleged perpetrators of the crime as “terrorists.” Whatever “hateful agenda” propelled the attackers, Obama said, it “cannot prevail.” “They have already failed,” he said, because Americans refused to be terrified and intimidated.

SACRAMENTO - It isn't enough these days for certain state lawmakers to defend their voting records when seeking reelection. Some also have to explain arrest records. Within the last 20 months, five state legislators and one former state senator with active campaigns have been arrested on suspicion of crimes including drunk driving, perjury, voter fraud, shoplifting and trying to carry a loaded gun through airport security. Not since the FBI sting known as Shrimpscam, which targeted influence peddling in the Capitol in the 1990s, have so many state lawmakers posed for booking photos in such a short span of time.
