Ruben Sanchez also was booked on suspicion of sodomy on a minor.

After the coffee. Before the holiday parties start. The Skinny: Caught up with "The Walking Dead" last night. Pretty intense stuff. Now I need to catch Sunday's "Homeland" although that show jumped the shark for me awhile ago. Tuesday's headlines include the mysterious benching of a popular radio personality. Also, Netflix is making a big push for kids, and the financial news channels are not enjoying the benefits of an improving stock market. Lastly, did a TV station go too far in having Ron Burgundy host its local news?

Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez stepped down Thursday as the top U.S. commander in Iraq, his 14-month tenure clouded by the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and the military's failure to crush the ongoing insurgency. Sanchez's departure was part of a long-scheduled command shift, officials said. Gen. George W. Casey, the Army vice chief of staff and a four-star general, replaced Sanchez as head of the U.S.-led coalition's 160,000 troops in Iraq.

To get to see Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, you pass through four security checks and two body searches and then are driven past high concrete barricades, earth-filled barriers and helixes of barbed wire deep into the bowels of one of Saddam Hussein's more splendid former palaces stretched out on the bank of the Tigris.

The Angels used more than a quarter of their international bonus pool of $2 million to sign Venezuelan pitcher Ricardo Sanchez, a 16-year-old left-hander who was ranked No. 27 on Baseball America's list of top international prospects, for a reported $580,000. Sanchez is only 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, but his fastball ranges between 87-90 mph, and he has shown a good feel for his curve and changeup. Though he has had control problems, scouts like his delivery and believe, as he grows, he'll gain more velocity and command.
