Everybody knows that rock stars are legendary for their bad behavior: The Stones trashed hotel rooms, the Who smashed their instruments onstage. Pity poor Mick Brown, the drummer for rocker Ted Nugent. Now 55, the music industry veteran from Cave Creek, Ariz., was arrested following a concert in Maine for high-jinks many might consider appropriate for his, ahem, advancing age. He was busted for allegedly taking a drunken joyride on a golf cart. Brown pleaded not guilty this week to operating under the influence of intoxicants, driving to endanger, theft and assault following a July 8 concert in Bangor, Maine.

When they finally had overrun Moammar Kadafi's vast fortress and crushed the illusion that he still ruled them, euphoric rebels hunted down symbols of the power Libya's leader had held over nearly every aspect of their lives. They torched the Bedouin tent where Kadafi famously met with dignitaries and journalists. They drove around in one of the golf carts in which he navigated the compound. They mocked him by trying on a cheap plastic military hat that he might have worn in photos and on television.

As gas prices escalate toward $5 a gallon, one novel fuel saver is generally overlooked: the street-legal golf cart. These electric, low-speed vehicles, or LSVs, have been available since 1998 but have yet to catch on with urban commuters who may not be keen to avoid freeways and chug along at 25 mph. LSVs are essentially golf carts equipped with seatbelts, a safety-glass windshield and other street-legal features required by the National Highway...

Every time USC running back Dillon Baxter sees a would-be tackler out of the corner of his eye, instinct kicks in. "I want to cut back so bad," he said Saturday. The sophomore tailback, however, is attempting this spring to move straight ahead — on and off the field. Baxter's freshman season was, in his words, "a mess. " Quarterback Matt Barkley finding a comfort zone Part of the problem was a spectacular run he made last spring against a defense that would later prove to be subpar in tackling.
