WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero, who was in New York this week promoting his May 4 fight against unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr. , was arrested Thursday at John F. Kennedy International Airport when he tried to take a gun onto a plane. Police said the 30-year-old boxer from Gilroy, Calif., had a box with an unloaded .40-caliber handgun and three unloaded magazines that he tried to check with a ticket agent. Although the gun had been registered by Guerrero in California, it's illegal in New York to carry a weapon that is not licensed there.

E. Richard "Rick" Brown, the founding director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research who pioneered the collection and wide dissemination of health survey data to influence public policy and was a leading advocate for healthcare reform, has died. He was 70.

In his Cleveland basement, the biomedical engineer with the thrill-ride fascination went to work. A new roller coaster had opened in Ohio in 1972, but it contained a design flaw that caused several teenage girls to suffer broken collarbones. He built a precise model of the coaster and borrowed technology commonly used in the aerospace industry to pinpoint the trouble: a spot where the track was too steep, which made the cars over-accelerate and slam around riders who were more slightly built.

Saturday night was not a good night to be a member of the Minnesota Vikings' offensive unit. The Ram defense beat the Vikings into submission, 24-14, in front of 45,087 in Anaheim Stadium. They swarmed the Vikings with legions of defenders. "Gang-tackling, Rambo-type defense," cornerback LeRoy Irvin called it. And when the defense caught up with the Vikings, it invariably slammed them to the turf with great force. "There were a lot of ohh and ahh-type hits," Ram Coach John Robinson said.

Richard Brown, the former San Diego State and Ram linebacker, was in a hurry Tuesday afternoon, with little time to eat lunch, less to talk. He had some routine but important business to take care of on the fifth day of his first Charger training camp. "I've got to go to a meeting," he said, hurrying to conclude a brief post-lunch interview at UC San Diego. "I need a job." He needs it now more than ever. Brown and his wife, Heather, recently became the parents of their first child.

Is America more violent than any other nation? The fact is that the United States is a violent place. As a nation, it was brought into being by violence as much as by statecraft, suppressed an entire people through slavery, re-earned its nationhood through a terrible civil war, then celebrated that unification through the systematic, genocidal decimation of its Native American peoples. And it hasn't stopped there. Consider the rampage of Howard Unruh in September 1949, in Camden, N.J.

In a stinging rebuke to the Angels' new management, former club President Richard Brown wrote a letter to The Times this week, criticizing General Manager Bill Stoneman's claim that the team would contend this year as an "insult" to fans. Stoneman recently told a national baseball publication the Angels would be contenders in 2000, even without another player acquisition, so long as the team stayed healthy.

The final days of the Richard Brown presidency are upon us. Brown, the Angels' CEO since November 1990, knows it. Disney, expected to assume controlling interest of the Angels within a month, knows it, too. The only difference is Brown is available for comment on the matter. "I have been told absolutely nothing," Brown says, "and I have to respect Disney's wishes to say nothing because [the sale] hasn't been approved by baseball yet . . . But I read the papers like everyone else.

Richard Brown, president of the Angels, said Wednesday that he and the club's owners, Gene and Jackie Autry, are determined to investigate the Kelly Gruber situation "because we come across as country bumpkins." "I'm embarrassed and upset," Brown said while attending an owners' meeting here. "I'm trying to harness those emotions and determine in a methodical way who knew, besides Gruber, that he was seriously hurt and why weren't we told about it."

In addition to placing tight end Rod Bernstine on injured reserve Wednesday, the Chargers also put linebacker Richard Brown (hamstring) on injured reserve and signed running back Joe Mickles and linebacker Antonio Goss. Brown, the captain of the Charger special teams unit, has been slowed by a hamstring injury in the past several games. "I was trying to help out, but it didn't look right on the films," Brown said. "I was one of the last guys down on kickoffs.

Coming to Southern California as a visitor was a new--and costly--experience for Cleveland Browns linebacker Richard Brown. So he made the Chargers pay some of the freight on Sunday. A lifelong Southland resident and a Charger linebacker until he was left an unprotected free agent last spring, Brown was instrumental in his team's 30-24 overtime victory over the Chargers.
