Suspended Hawkeye Robinson Charged With Pot Possession
Even though Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz suspended starting running back Adam Robinson for the Insight Bowl, Ferentz expected Robinson to eventually earn back his spot with the Hawkeyes. Getting arrested on a marijuana charge wasn't exactly what Ferentz had in mind. Robinson, 21, was charged with possession of marijuana Monday night in his hometown of Des Moines, putting his career at Iowa in jeopardy. The Iowa State Patrol said Robinson was a passenger in a vehicle pulled over for not having front plates. Police said a trooper detected a marijuana odor from the vehicle, then found marijuana after a search.
Robinson was released with a promise to appear in court Jan. 5. A message left at his family's home in Des Moines wasn't immediately returned. Iowa athletic director Gary Barta issued a statement Tuesday afternoon that said, "Kirk and I were made aware of Adam's situation earlier this morning. Obviously, we are both extremely disappointed to hear the news. We don't have all of the facts and will withhold any further comment until we return to Iowa City and learn all of the details." The driver was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana. Robinson was one of three talented sophomore running backs the Hawkeyes brought to fall camp, and he quickly emerged as Iowa's starter after Brandon Wegher left for personal reasons and Jewel Hampton blew out his knee.
Robinson rushed for a team-high 941 yards and 10 touchdowns despite missing two games because of concussions. But he didn't start the first quarter of a 20-17 loss to Ohio State on Nov. 20 because of what Ferentz dubbed "academic indigestion." He was left off the roster for Tuesday night's Insight Bowl against Missouri (10-2) for failing to comply with team expectations and policies. Robinson's arrest is the latest headache for Ferentz and the Hawkeyes, who've endured a miserable month on and off the field.

Robertson Pleases Pot Legalization Groups
Television evangelist Pat Robertson has made inflammatory remarks in recent years that offend gays, Muslims and others, but a recent comment he made on his Christian Broadcasting Network was more notable for whom it pleased: people who want to see marijuana legalized.
"We're locking up people that take a couple of puffs of marijuana, and the next thing you know they've got 10 years," the controversial pastor said on "The 700 Club" on Dec. 16, in a clip unearthed by bloggers this week. "I'm not exactly for the use of drugs - don't get me wrong - but I just believe that criminalizing marijuana, criminalizing the possession of a few ounces of pot and that kind of thing, I mean, it's just, it's costing us a fortune and it's ruining young people."
It was a surprising admission from a Christian conservative and favourite target of liberals, who have pounced on his assertions that the earthquake that devastated Haiti's capital city in January resulted from a pact with the Devil, for example, or that Hurricane Katrina was punishment for abortion and the country's general moral decay.

BETTY White will do anything to get a laugh — except tell dope jokes!
“I don’t do dope jokes,” said the legend, who was recently named Entertainer of the Year by the AP. “I don’t think dope is funny or fun.
“In one episode of Hot in Cleveland, my character goes into a room and thinks she smells marijuana. And that’s it. My character won’t smoke. I wouldn’t do it.
“The secret to going strong at my age is I get four or five hours a sleep a night. That’s all the sleep I need. And I’m blessed with good energy thanks to being blessed with good health. I’m actually sitting here with my kitties right now as I talk to you.
“I can’t get over what’s going on with my life and my career.
“At my age, I’m an old broad. All I can do is roll with the punches, enjoy it and be grateful for it.”
Men break into 50 Cent's mansion
Police have arrested two men after they broke into 50 Cent’s Connecticut mansion.
The burglars, Alexander Hernandez and Santos Padilla, were both carrying marijuana when police found them, according to reports.
A security guard alerted police about the break-in around 6am on Tuesday morning.
Hernandez, who had been found in a closet drinking wine, was handed over to New Britain police after his $50,000 (£32,368) bond was posted. It was discovered that he had outstanding warrants.
Padilla was also held at $50,000 bond.
The rapper purchased the mansion in 2003 for $4.1m (£2.6m). Mike Tyson was the home's previous owner.
