A 23-year-old female medical student has filed a complaint in Cook County circuit court claiming that Raider defensive end Scott Davis beat her and dragged her by her hair during a quarrel last Saturday night. It is the fourth time in three years that Davis, 24, a 1988 first-round draft choice from the University of Illinois, has been the target of a battery allegation in legal proceedings in Illinois. Three of the complaints were lodged by women.

Scott Davis Mount SAC track and field announcer Scott Davis, 66, a longtime track and field announcer and statistician who added to the prestige of the Mount San Antonio College Relays by attracting such stars as Marion Jones, Carl Lewis and Asafa Powell to the annual meet he directed, died Wednesday at his home in Cerritos. Davis, who previously had overcome skin cancer and bone-marrow cancer, had been suffering from the effects of treatment for the cancer, said his wife, Cheryl.

Boris Becker, wilting a little in the 108-degree heat on the court, held off Scott Davis to reach the third round Thursday in the Australian Open. Becker, seeded second, beat last week's New Zealand Open champion, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-2. "I thought I served very well today," Becker said. "It was hard to see the ball in the sun . . . It's hot out there. It's not easy playing under those conditions, but it's the same for both players."

WHEN Shawn Weber and Scott Davis first arrived in California, neither suspected that two decades later they would be spending their nights and weekends with a 1,500-pound water buffalo. Both had experience with animals of a more domestic stripe -- Weber, a former vet tech, has worked as a trainer on films including 2007's "Underdog," 1999's "Stuart Little" and 1998's "The Parent Trap," while Davis, who came to California with the rodeo, began wrangling horses and cattle for films such as 1999's "Wild Wild West" and 1994's "Maverick."

Defensive end Scott Davis, with 2 1/2 sacks against Seattle, finally showed some of last year's form. Davis finished with 10 sacks in 1990, but entered the Seahawk game with one through nine games. Raider Coach Art Shell said Davis' long summer contract holdout probably slowed his development this season. "I think it hurt," Shell said, "because what you end up doing is you get yourself in shape during the season, rather than getting yourself in shape to play football during training camp.

Stefan Edberg had a full Tuesday afternoon. He showed off a stunning new tan, swiveled into his old corkscrew serve and became reacquainted with how it feels to win a tennis match. Edberg dispatched Scott Davis, 6-3, 6-2, to move into the third round of the $1-million Newsweek Champions Cup and appeared not at all like a player who had not won a match in nearly six weeks.

It was a Raider draft like any other, which means that Al Davis picks and everyone says, "Huh?" Except for the solid gold choice--Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown--there were raised eyebrows galore. The second of their three first-round picks, Tennessee cornerback Terry McDaniel, was termed a "reach," or not a good enough player to be chosen with the ninth pick in the draft. The third, Illinois defensive end Scott Davis, was labeled "vastly overrated" by ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Scott Davis is hard to miss. But then so are most guys who stand 6-feet-7, weigh 280 pounds, are articulate and can dominate a room by their mere presence. So how does this guy manage to keep disappearing and reappearing? He could be the next Fabio. Instead, he seems determined to be the next David Copperfield. Or Harry Houdini.

Everywhere you look in the Raider camp, there's a No. 1 pick. They have three, one for every taste. There's Tim Brown, the All-American kid. There's Terry McDaniel, the unassuming greyhound at cornerback. And then there's Scott Davis. Davis is a defensive end from the University of Illinois with great potential, apparently in several directions. He is big, athletic, intelligent and independent, but also inconsistent, not to mention occasionally in trouble, too.

If being a Raider means getting to let your hair down, then defensive end Scott Davis is making a serious run at Rapunzel. Make fun of Davis at your own peril. He's 6-feet-7, 270 pounds and makes a living squashing quarterbacks. He has seven sacks, fifth among AFC pass rushers this season. If there's talent to be tapped, the Raiders don't care if you braid your hair and skip rope with it.

With no money to dangle in appearance fees or prizes, Scott Davis can't give much but his gratitude to the 12,000 athletes who compete each year at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays. "On Saturday and Sunday you can get an In-N-Out burger. Ain't nothing wrong with that," said Davis, the meet's director since 1997. That's a powerful inducement. So is a chance to compete at charming Hilmer Lodge Stadium, which affords fine views of the action -- and of cows grazing on hills across the road.

Brea Olinda ace Scott Davis took the ball one more time against Orange League rival Western. And for the fourth time, Western couldn't find a way to beat him. Davis gave up five singles, struck out four and did not walk a batter to lead the unseeded Wildcats to a 3-0 victory in a Southern Section Division III baseball quarterfinal Friday at Brea. Brea (20-8-1) advanced to the semifinals to play West Covina South Hills, a 9-6 winner over Burbank Burroughs.

Considered the strongest spinner in men's figure skating, two-time national champion Scott Davis knew he was in trouble last summer when his head continued to spin even after the rest of his body had stopped. "There were some times it was so bad, it was, 'What if I can never skate again?' " he said Wednesday. Eventually, an ear, nose and throat doctor near Davis' home at Colorado Springs, Colo., diagnosed the condition as vertigo, an increasingly prominent ailment for Olympic athletes.

The drunk driver who killed 18-year-old Kathryn Marie Ward three weeks before she was to be salutatorian at Quartz Hill High School's commencement has pleaded no contest to a charge of vehicular manslaughter.

Scott Davis and Todd Eldredge matched each other triple axel for powerful triple axel Saturday, drawing squeals from the capacity crowd at the Providence Civic Center. Each time one leaped and landed with a loud crunch of blade on ice, he sent a clear message. Take that. Try and top THAT. Too bad their dazzling display occurred during warm-ups for the final phase of the U.S. men's figure skating championships, not in the 4 1/2-minute free skate programs.

He had left without warning. He tried to return without controversy. And indeed, watching Raider defensive end Scott Davis back playing Wednesday at the team's El Segundo training headquarters, it was as if he had never left. There he was as always at the morning walk-through, going through the daily routine in shorts and a cut-off shirt. There he was in the afternoon in full uniform, running up and down the field in a sweat-soaked uniform.

In the end, Scott Davis raised his right hand and stopped another John Elway comeback. And maybe saved the Raiders' season. Not bad for a hand. Davis presented all five digits to reporters afterward as Exhibit A, identified the spot where the ball deflected, and rejoiced his body part in the Raiders' 23-20 victory over the Denver Broncos before 74,162 at Mile Stadium.

The Raiders left for Tokyo without two unsigned veteran players, center Don Mosebar and defensive end Scott Davis. Davis, who made $250,000 in 1990, is coming off his best season, during which he recorded a personal-best 10 sacks. Mosebar, who made the Pro Bowl last season, earned $585,000 in 1990.

Two weeks to the day after he walked out of the Raiders' training headquarters in El Segundo, citing "personal problems," defensive end Scott Davis walked back in. It was the players' day off Tuesday and there weren't many others around. Davis came in shortly after noon, met with defensive line coach Gunther Cunningham, worked out and then left, gone before he could be asked for a comment. He was on the premises less than an hour.

He told Raider management he was coming. He told several players he was coming. He even told a reporter who ran into him at the airport Saturday that he was coming back to the team on Monday. But Monday came and went at the Raider training headquarters in El Segundo and there was no Scott Davis. The defensive end has now been missing for 14 days, absent since he left camp Sept. 6, the day after the Raiders' season-opening loss and right after he had fought with teammate Greg Biekert.
