The man facing trial for the brutal beating of a fan at a Los Angeles Raiders football game was arrested again, this time for alleged drunk driving. Shane Geringer, 20, who is free on $30,000 bail in the assault case, was booked after a sheriff's deputy stopped his car Saturday on Las Virgenes Road, 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles, said Deputy Sue Cross. Geringer, whose blood-alcohol level was 0.14, nearly twice the legal 0.08, was cited and released, Cross said. No court date was released.

Two men convicted of robbing the Coliseum of $285,000 in 1983 were sentenced Friday to prison terms of nine and seven years. But the prosecutor in the case declared in court that he was "shocked" by the decision of Superior Court Judge Dion G.

Alcohol sales during Sunday's Los Angeles Raiders football game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will be prohibited, and the sale of beer during subsequent Raider and USC contests at the stadium will be severely restricted, county Supervisor Mike Antonovich announced Thursday. The one-game ban--imposed in the wake of the brutal beating of a Pittsburgh Steeler fan at the stadium last month--will be in effect Sunday when the Raiders play the Seattle Seahawks.

Henry Avakian, one of 15 civilians honored by a Van Nuys police booster group Thursday for thwarting criminals, said being a hero has its rewards--and drawbacks. After all, he wrested a 10-inch knife from a car thief and rescued an elderly woman from the vehicle. But the thief rammed Avakian's meticulously maintained 1982 BMW and escaped because an unidentified "fat guy" rushed out and grabbed Avakian by the neck, thinking he was the aggressor.
