Man and woman arrested after having sex in front of a police station

first_imgA man and a woman have been arrested after they were allegedly caught having sex in front of a police station.The incident occurred Tuesday near the Key West Police Station.According to the report, authorities received a tip about the couple from a passerby who reportedly told them that the couple seemed ready to fornicate.When authorities arrived at the scene, they found the couple, identified as Gary Hill and Crystal Frances ” in the act.”Authorities say Hill was found with his shorts around his ankles while Frances was wearing neither pants or underwear.When authorities asked what the pair where doing, Hill replied “It was a Key West moment.”The officer then asked the pair to put back on their clothes. While Hill promptly began getting dressed, Frances refused to do so, which led authorities to believe that she may have been intoxicated.Officials also found a bottle of vodka near the couple.Hill was arrested and charged with Lewd & Lascivious Indecent Exposure and having sex in public. Frances was initially taken to the hospital but once she is released, a warrant is expected to be issued for her arrest.last_img read more

The big matches of 1320 Heat

first_imgTODAY’S 1320 Heat rematch event at South Dakota Circuit, Timehri, has a lot of fans talking about the best matchups for the event.Race-time is 10:00hrs and here are some of the battles that could keep the crowd on their feet:Team Mohamed’s Goliath GTR vs Mad Dog Toyota Supra.There was a lot of controversy surrounding this one at the end of the last event with Team Mohamed’s Goliath suffering mechanical issues, and the Mad Dog Supra of S&D Performance not coming to the line either. Still, this is one that will have fans on the edge of their seats.Both cars were running down in the 8-second brackets at the last outing and it would make for a close contest should they line up again. Unofficial times seen by sportshubgy show both cars have gotten faster from the last instalment but a clear winner will be decided on October 20.S&D Performance Toyota Caldina vs Transpacific Toyota AlteezaThroughout the years, the Toyota Caldina of Sean Persaud has undergone a transformation into arguably one of the most eye-catching locally built machines on the quarter-mile. Unfortunately, mechanical issues forced him out of the last encounter but sources have confirmed that he is back and better than ever.Boasting possibly the fastest 3sGTE across the 592, Persaud’s Caldina is definitely a machine that fans want to see run. We at sportshubgy feel that an apt match for the four-cylinder beast is that of the Transpacific Alteeza, another locally built beast that has been making waves and also smoke clouds.The transformation of the Alteeza has not been a smooth road but it has definitely come a long way from not making it past rounds one and two. Still, their battle would generate much debateAvi Samaroo Mitsubishi Evo vs Jason Gonzalves Honda CivicThe long battle of all-wheel drive versus two-wheel drive has waged through the ages and none underscored more than the battle between Avi Samaroo and Jason Gonzalves.Samaroo’s Mitsubishi Evolution has ‘one-upped’ Gonzalves Honda Civic for the 12-second trophy but word on the street is that the Gonzalves camp returned to the drawing board for more speed and has found it. While in the eyes of some, it might be a mismatch, sometimes it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the fight in the dog.Transpacific Toyota Alteeza vs Peter Daby Mazda RX7 (second generation)Another age-old battle has been that of the Rotary versus Piston engine argument. While some feel that has long been won by the latter, Peter Daby’s Mazda RX7 second generation has certainly reopened that debate locally.When it arrived on the scene earlier this year, the RX7 brought back memories of a time when a rotary was the thing to beat. Lining up alongside one of the most iconic piston engines ever created in the 2JZ will surely be a battle that all petrol heads will enjoy.Transpacific Toyota Alteeza vs Mad Dog Toyota Supra There isn’t much to say here. It’s simply. 2JZ versus 2JZE – a battle of who has the better 2JZ on the market and who has it in the best set-up. On one hand, there is the mad dog Supra and the other is Transpacific Alteeza. While they have never run competitively, there is a rumbling that one is willing to call the other out.Godzilla vs the clockThe Team Mohamed’s white GTR, known as Godzilla, is definitely going to be a crowd-puller and there will be many lining up to challenge it. But the biggest thing that it will face on the 1320 Heat rematch will be the clock.A few days prior to the mechanical issues that plagued it, the team had recorded a mid-seven-second time but failed to put it down on race day. The fastest strip time recorded is a 7.9 by Andy Bissesar’s Railcar at the last meet. Can Godzilla better it? We will have to wait to see.Admission for adults is $1 000 and for children $500.last_img read more

Four players retained by Jamaica Tallawahs

first_imgTHE Jamaica Tallawahs have announced the Caribbean players they will be retaining for the 2020 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL).International retentions and signings will be announced at a later date.This year teams can retain as many players from their 2019 squads as they wish.They could also transfer players to other teams and sign emerging players.The Tallawahs have chosen to retain or sign four Caribbean players ahead of the CPL draft in Andre Russell (Jamaica), Rovman Powell (Jamaica), Oshane Thomas (Jamaica) and Chadwick Walton (Jamaica)Jefferson Miller, CEO of the Tallawahs, said, “The Tallawahs organisation will be seeking to rebuild in 2020. We are extremely excited to have Andre Russell back for another year. Andre was recently named as the leading T20 cricketer in the world by the 2020 edition of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack.”He added, “We are delighted for the opportunity to retain Oshane Thomas and Rovman Powell, both rising stars in West Indies and world cricket. I’m looking forward to having the veteran Chadwick Walton back in the dressing room,Chadwick brings a wealth of leadership experience to the team and has been a dominant player over the years in the CPL. Overall we are looking forward to a successful CPL 2020 and to returning the championship to Jamaica.”The CPL is scheduled to take place between August 19 and September 26 but the tournament organisers are currently watching the current situation with COVID-19 closely and are liaising with medical advisors and governments.A decision on whether the tournament can proceed as planned, or at a different time, will be made as soon as possible.last_img read more

New program offers path for postgraduates

first_imgUnder the guidance of Steven Lamy, vice dean for academic programs and professor of international relations, Dornsife has created an inaugural preceptor program for postdoctoral humanities and social sciences students.Applications for this program opened in February, and doctorate students began their contracts with USC this semester.“This post-doctorate position allows students to be mentored by faculty and also teach their own course,” Lamy said. “We wanted them to teach one course each semester and then work with a senior faculty member as a discussion leader in four sections.”During the time of their contract, which lasts two years, students will still be able to apply for jobs and finish their dissertations.“There is 25 percent less workload than non-tenure track professors,” Lamy said. “So they still have time to work on their dissertation and still have contact with their advisers.”Alexander Young, who recently finished his Ph.D. in English, is one of the post-doctorates in the pilot year of this program. A total of six out of 20 applicants were accepted, three in the social sciences department and three in the humanities department.Young believes that this program will improve his job application process, which is often difficult for recent Ph.D. graduates.“The academic job market is tightening, and it is increasingly difficult to get a tenure track position out of grad school,” Young said. “The hope is that we will be going on the job market with better resumes than we would have had had we not had this teaching position.”Administrators believe both Ph.D. students and undergraduates will benefit from this program.“You get someone teaching your class who is brand new, closer to your age, excited about it and have a lot of energy,” Lamy said. “And they want to do really well, so they will be more likely to focus on the course.”Ph.D. Elizabeth Ann Logan, who is teaching American Legal History, said she appreciates the opportunities the program provides.“I’m grateful for the opportunity to lecture and mentor USC students in the area of legal history in the context of the law history and culture major,” Logan said. “I’m getting a chance to blend history and law in a way I haven’t before — an opportunity that this program is affording me.”“Representing the Global War on Terror” is one of the required freshman general education seminars taught by Young.“[The preceptor program] has created some new course offerings and put some younger instructors in the classroom,” Young said. “I have the opportunity to work with students on a new project that is evolving as it is unfolding in the classroom.”Young is grateful for being a preceptor at USC, considering the struggle for most post-doctorates.“The crisis in academic hiring has made it tough for recent Ph.D.’s,” Young said. “Now, Ph.D.’s can stay at USC and earn reasonable salary and benefits and job stability.”Young’s situation is different than most Ph.D. students, who, after graduating, must teach at multiple institutions to make a livable wage.“They are freeway flyers,” Lamy said. “Often, they must teach at four institutions to make a living.”The aim of the program is to prevent the need of that lifestyle and allow young doctorates to develop their skills.“We want them to be much more competitive in the job market,” Lamy said. “That’s our goal.”While many other universities have opened up these types of postdoctorate programs to everyone, USC’s preceptor program is reserved for USC students.“That’s what makes it different,” said Lamy. “We are trying to find ways to expand our relationship with the liberal arts.”From an outside perspective, this program gives Ph.D. students more opportunities than usual.“This kind of program at USC can give the young scholar an opportunity to get broader teaching experience, especially if they receive mentorship and professional development opportunities,” said Russell A. Berman, professor of German studies and comparative literature at Stanford University, to Inside Higher Education.USC’s program takes its roots from one introduced by Woodrow Wilson at Princeton. Other universities have implemented similar programs since then, and USC has recently caught on.“But we’re are in the middle of the parade — not behind or ahead,” said Lamy.As this is the first year, Lamy expects even more growth and development.“We try to meet with the preceptors every semester to get feedback from this first group,” Lamy said. “We are hoping that if it works well we will see the program grow.”Lamy said he has high hopes for the preceptors.“Hopefully today’s preceptors are tomorrow’s full-time professors at a major universities.”last_img read more

T&T High court rules in favor of LGBT community

first_imgThe Trinidad and Tobago High Court on Thursday has ruled it unconstitutional to impede on the rights of homosexual men and anal sex.The challenge against the state was brought by gay rights activist Jason Jones in 2017.Final ruling in three monthsHowever, a final ruling will be handed down in three months.Following the court’s decision members of the LGBT Community, celebrated on the outskirts of the building.The court matter was brought to repeal sections 13 and 16 of the Sexual Offenses Act which criminalizes buggery and serious indecency even between consenting adults.Jones claimed that the long-standing legislation contravenes his constitutional rights to privacy and freedom of thought and expression in addition to being in direct contradiction to this country’s international human rights obligations.Stunning victory“It was a stunning victory for human rights and for all Trinidad and Tobago citizens …I think we must all come together now after this judgement and embrace each other in true love and respect and honor for each citizen. This is not about LGBT, it is about the rights and freedoms that are enshrined in our constitution and I hope that everybody will come away with this calmly and collectively, looking at what the future should be for our nation. “We have to now start to pull together and I think today is a starting moment for us to do that,” said Jones, following the ruling.Disowned by familyWhen the ruling was filed last year, Jones told reporters that he decided to file the lawsuit due to his personal experience as a homosexual in Trinidad and Tobago including him being disowned by his family forcing him to migrate to the United Kingdom.“I don’t wish to shove a gay agenda down you (the public) throat or attack your morals, religion or spirituality, I am doing this for the betterment of our nation, and for our feature generations,” he then said.The lawsuit is one of several landmark cases filed by Caribbean LGBT activists challenging regional homophobic laws.In 2016, Jamaican lawyer Maurice Tomlinson challenged the immigration laws in Trinidad and Tobago and Belize which allow for refusal of entry to regional homosexual visitors.While the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) dismissed his case, both Governments admitted that the laws were not enforced by their immigration officials.Later that year, Belize’s Supreme Court struck down that country’s sodomy laws, after a case similar to Jones’ was filed by a local activist.However, unlike Trinidad and Tobago Belize did not have a saving clause protecting its legislation from review.last_img read more

Rick Pitino willing to play far off Broadway in return to college coaching at Iona

first_img“What godforsaken town are you in now?” Rick Pitino asked, a gentle mocking of his former assistant as Cronin climbed Division I’s coaching ladder.MORE: Twitterverse reacts to Pitino’s return Pitino, 67, has been to the top of that ladder — literally — twice in a head coaching career than began all the way back in 1978 when he was hired, at age 25, to coach the Boston University Terriers. He was a prodigy then, his talent so obvious it was as if he wore a neon sign that said “Future Hall of Famer.”Now, that current Hall of Famer will be the next head coach at Iona College.Pitino stumbled, in a sense, on that second trip to the top. The Louisville program he was running, which claimed the NCAA championship in 2013, became the center of a scandal through the publication of the book “Breaking Cardinal Rules,” which detailed stripper parties in the team’s residence hall that were allegedly funded by a basketball staff member. That cost U of L what had been its third national title banner.And more problems became apparent in 2017, when one of Pitino’s assistant coaches was caught on a federal wiretap in which another man discussed an apparel company making future payments to a Louisville recruit. Not long after that was revealed in an FBI complaint, Pitino lost his job.MORE: Pitino, Louisville settle lawsuits over dismissal Now, Pitino is willing to begin at what represents Division I’s bottom rung.Back when the question was relevant, in the immediate aftermath of his dismissal from Louisville, I would respond to those asking if Pitino would coach again in college by suggesting that it likely would occur only if he were willing to work again in a bus league.And so he has.If you needed a March upset, at least you’ve got this.Iona is a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. The regular-season champion of this season’s MAAC, Siena, was expected to be a No. 16 seed in the 2020 NCAA Tournament, according to Sporting News’ Ryan Fagan. Siena is located in Albany, N.Y., which is a two-hour bus trip from the Iona campus. Quinnipiac is an hour up the road in Connecticut. The only genuinely long trip is across the entire state of New York to Buffalo, the location of Canisius College.Pitino has demonstrated he wants to coach badly — badly enough to move all the way to Greece and lead the Panathinaikos basketball club in the Greek Basket League and Euroleague. That he was willing to go so far afield to remain in the business, when he is far beyond doing it for the money, is more than surprising.Even though it offers the opportunity to live again in midtown Manhattan, if he wishes, it seemed highly unlikely he would be willing to coach in one of the college game’s most charming and balanced — but least glamorous — leagues, so well captured in a beautiful midseason column by New York Post sportswriter Mike Vaccaro.DeCOURCY: Hofstra, Mihalich have only pride this MarchThe MAAC itself has declined a bit in recent years. In 1990, it was home to a national player of the year, Lionel Simmons, and a La Salle Explorers team that went 30-2, earned a No. 5 NCAA Tournament seed and produced two other NBA players beyond Simmons.In 2012, Iona earned an at-large NCAA Tournament bid and appeared in the First Four opposite BYU, and under coach Tim Cluess the Gaels won the MAAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament the past four seasons and five times overall. In February 2004, on a Friday afternoon between games at Tennessee Tech and Austin Peay, Mick Cronin sat on a bus with his Murray State players behind him, his assistant coaches beside him and a couple of journalists along for the ride.Cronin’s cell phone rang. He answered without hesitation, probably because he knew the caller was important. Cluess missed the 2019-20 season, though, with an undisclosed illness and resigned earlier this week to serve as a consultant to the program and focus on his recovery.Iona is located in New Rochelle, N.Y., one of the American cities most challenged by the emergence of the coronavirus. There may be some who criticize Iona for insensitivity or poor optics, but this is a moment when Iona most needs prospective students to understand the college has a future.Now, that future will include one of the most gifted coaches ever to wear a pair of designer loafers in front of a college bench. One wonders if he will dress down a bit.last_img read more

Independent pro wrestling owner talks pulling show due to COVID-19, how much the promotion will lose financially

first_imgSN: What do you say to the fans?DD: Watch our shows. We’re giving you AAW On Demand for free. I know we don’t have a show on the 20th. But enjoy. If you haven’t seen all of our shows, go check them out for free. New fans, go check us out, see what the product is all about because I don’t think anybody in the country can match what we’re doing as far as the complete show. Do I believe another group has better pure wrestling than us? Yeah, I do and that’s PWG. I believe they have the best pure wrestling in the country. But there’s no storylines. There’s no production to it.I think we have everything. We have the whole complete package of an indie show when I put our product up against anybody. If you haven’t checked it out, check us out for free or check us out on Highspots. The coronavirus pandemic has shut down the NBA, NHL and UFC, MLB, boxing and the Premier League.The one form of sports entertainment that hasn’t been moved to the sidelines yet is professional wrestling. WWE and AEW have put on events without fans in attendance and only essential personnel being allowed. That being said, not all pro wrestling events are happening. Independent promotions have been forced to shut things down left and right.  One of the companies affected by COVID-19 is All American Wrestling, also known as AAW. The promotion is based in Chicago and regarded as one of the most prominent indie outfits in the world. It has been in existence since 2004 and has featured the likes of The Young Bucks, Matt Riddle, Pentagon Jr., Rey Fenix and MJF. AAW was scheduled to conduct its next show Friday night from the Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago, but it had to cancel the card because the state of Illinois and the U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention have essentially postponed sporting events by limiting the number of people allowed in any area.AAW co-owner Danny Daniels took some time to talk with Sporting News about having to cancel the event, how much money the company is losing and the talent reaction to the show not taking place.(Editor’s note: This interview was edited for length and clarity.)Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSPORTING NEWS: When the coronavirus was first starting to get talked about, did you ever think it would get to this point where you had to cancel your show coming up this Friday?DANNY DANIELS: No, we weren’t going to cancel it. We were just asking all the workers, all the fans and everything, if you have been sneezing, do not come to our show. When Illinois cut back the attendance rule to 250 people, we said. ‘Okay, we’re going to lose money on this show. We knew that going in because 250 (people), we’re going to lose money on it.’ We have a high payroll. We don’t use local guys on our shows. It’s all fly-in talent or high-end drive-in talent, not many local up-and-coming rookies. That’s not our roster.We knew we going to lose our butt on 250 fans. When (the gathering rule) got knocked down to 100, we’re like, ‘Oh my God, we’re not gonna make it’. Then, they (state of Illinois) just banned everything (like) if you have alcohol in the building. I forgot what the cap is. Even the building said, ‘We can’t do this. We’re going to shut down.’ As of a couple days ago, we were going to run, but then we found out now, it’s like now we can’t.SN: Instead of canceling did you think about going the WWE and AEW route and going ahead without fans and trying to stream it in some way, shape or form?DD: With the cap of 250 (people), we would lose a couple thousand dollars. Does that hurt? Absolutely. Is that going to bankrupt us? No. But going with no fans, that would bankrupt us and I couldn’t do that. AAW is a mom and pop place. We don’t have a sponsor behind us. There’s no money in it. It’s me and my partner Mike that fund AAW. We run it not to lose one dollar. That’s it. We don’t take money from it, but we run it not to lose one dollar.We have families to take care of. So, that’s the goal. A couple thousand dollars? It’d be like, ‘Okay, we can front that.’ To run an AAW show, it’s between $10,000-$15,000 a show. We need the fans to obviously help us out and the fans buying tickets keeps the show going. We’re not in a financial place to lose $10-$15,000 because you get no return from those ticket sales.  Even if you live-streamed it , believe me when I tell you, I know that it’s the wave of the future but you’re not making $10-$15,000 on live streaming. I don’t care if you’re doing live pay-per-view. We can’t afford to lose that kind of money.SN: What was the talent response to having to cancel the show?DD: I only had two people that said, ‘You know what, we’d rather just take the show off.’ I had one talent that was going to get pulled because he was in England, and he wasn’t going be able to make it. The rest of them all said, we’ll be there.SN: Did that surprise you?DD: No, not because it’s their livelihood. They’re all young. This virus isn’t affecting people in their 20s, 30s or even 40s. It’s no. It’s affecting the elderly mostly. These guys are doing it for their livelihood. If they don’t wrestle, they don’t get (paid). So, of course, they’re gonna go out there and do it.SN: The talent doesn’t get paid if there are no shows. Is that correct?DD: Correct. Nobody’s under a contract with AAW. I don’t know deals with Impact, AEW or WWE. I’m sure those guys are under guaranteed deals. So, regardless if they have shows or not, these guys are getting a bi-weekly check. They’re independent contractors when they work for me.SN: How hard was it for you on the owner’s level to have to pull the show? What were you feeling at first? And now since you’ve had little bit of time to think about it, how do you feel right now?DD: I mean, terrible because we’ve ran (shows for) 15 years now. We’ve never canceled the show. Never. We’ve’ve gone into shows knowing we’re gonna lose money. We’ve never canceled. We’ve never canceled because it’s going to be a bad crowd (and decided) we’re going to cancel and cut our losses. We’ve never done that. We run because we want to make wrestling better. It’s about the fans, the experience of going to an AAW show (and) about trying to make the wrestling independent scene better.Our pride was on the line and it sucked to cancel the show and it sucked that a lot of people aren’t going to be able to make money. A lot of people depend on our monthly shows or we run twice a month. They rely on that income to pay their bills, to buy food. It sucked. But then again, when Illinois put that ban down, there was nothing we can do. There was nothing the venue can do. We got to shut down.SN: In terms of medicals, were you guys going to do anything differently to make sure that the talent is safe? Or was it solely on the talent to get their own type of testing? How does that work for you guys?DD: In general, the U.S. doesn’t have enough kits to test people, let alone an independent pro wrestling company. All we were going to do is we canceled the meet and greets, so the wrestlers weren’t going to get near the fans. They would have to worry about their opponent and the referee and that would be it. Again, the crowd was going to be down to 250 (people) so we were going to space them out with security. We normally put, like I said, over 500 in there. So this would be you’re not close to people. We were going to sanitize everything and wipe everything down every hour. That was our plan to do between the railings, the ring, when you walk up the stairs, the tables, the bar, everything and have a bunch of hand sanitizer ready to go for them. That’s what the process was going to be.SN: I saw on Twitter that you guys are giving a free month on the on-demand side, so fans can watch all the shows in various ways. You don’t have to give the figure, but how much do you estimate that you will lose not having a show on Friday night?DD: It’s never about profit. AAW doesn’t run because we’re making (money). We don’t run shows to go, ‘Oh my God we run shows that we’re each going to put a grand ($1,000) in our pocket.’ We don’t do that. Whatever we make and profit goes back into the promotion. We bought new cameras. We bought our own new streaming equipment because we want to do everything in-house.The cap was 250 (people). This show, we knew we were going to lose anyways going in so there was no money that was going to be made on the show. This was we just didn’t want to screw over the crew and the guys depending on a payday, and we wanted to keep the show going. We knew this was going to be a money loss anyways, so we were going to take the hit.SN: You have a show scheduled for April 17. What is the status of that show as of right now?DD: I don’t know. I’d like to run. We’ll see how this is going. I know a couple other groups have pulled their April shows already. Some I don’t know. I feel like there are (things) changing daily.last_img read more

Dele ‘shocked and angry’ after ‘horrible’ robbery scare, says Spurs pal Kane

first_imgHARRY KANE has revealed Dele Alli is “shocked and angry” after speaking to his Tottenham team-mate about his “horrible” robbery scare.Alli was battered by knife-wielding robbers who burst in to his house as he played pool with his girlfriend and brother.4 Dele Alli is ‘shocked and angry’ after being robbed, says Kane4 Harry Kane revealed all about Dele Alli on Good Morning BritainThe thieves stole three watches worth £350,000 as well as other jewellery from his £2million home after evading security – with Kane now revealing Dele and his family are OK, just “shocked” and “angry”.Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Kane revealed: “So I text him after it happened and he seemed OK.”Obviously when anything like that happens I guess you’d be in a little bit of shock and I think he was a little bit angry.”But he said to me obviously the most important thing was he was OK, his family was OK, no-one was hurt or anything like that.”It’s a horrible thing to hear, especially when it’s someone close to you, one of your good friends.”But I guess it’s one of those things… it wakes you up even more to make sure you’re as secure as possible in your home, doing as much as possible to make sure things like that don’t happen again.”Dele, 24, was in a downstairs room with long-time partner Ruby Mae, his adopted brother Harry, Harry’s girlfriend and another male friend when the masked bandits burst in at 12.30am Wednesday morning.They punched the Spurs midfielder in the mouth and assaulted another man after demanding the frightened group hand over valuables.’EXTREMELY SHAKEN’One suspect then ran upstairs and ransacked several of the star’s bedrooms.A source told The Sun: “The group have all been left extremely shaken.“Dele was still awake and playing pool with the others when the raiders got into the property.“It all kicked off downstairs and Dele was punched in the mouth by one of the two masked robbers.“One of Dele’s friends tried to have a go back. He was also beaten.“After stealing two expensive watches from Dele, one of the robbers prowled the upstairs and some items of jewellery were taken.”Another source close to Dele said: “It was a terrifying ordeal to go through. The two men who broke in had knives. They grabbed items and they demanded that Dele handed stuff over.”On Wednesday night, Alli took to Twitter to reassure his followers he was OK, writing: “Thank you for all the messages. Horrible experience but we’re all okay now. Appreciate the support.”4 Dele Alli was in the house with girlfriend Ruby Mae and familyAfter the shock robbery, Alli’s pals have devised a plan to ensure the stolen watches are impossible to sell.Dele has circulated details of their makes and models – with his football-playing friends alerting their watch dealers to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.The prized pieces are a £150,000 Richard Mille 11-03, a £150,000 Patek Philippe 5980 Nautilus and a £50,000 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chrono.A source said: “These robbers might think they have hit the jackpot stealing these watches, but they are going to face real problems cashing them in.“Footballers use a handful of dealers and none will touch a stolen watch because they know it could cause serious problems down the line.“It’s not unusual for cops in Dubai and Italy to demand to see papers for watches when passengers pass through security.“Can you imagine if a watch stolen in a violent robbery ends up on a wrist of a player who then gets arrested?“Dele is well connected through the England squad and knows players in Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool and London where all the main dealers are.“These dealers know if they accidentally bought any watch that turned out to be one of Dele’s, then they would never sell to a footballer again.”4 Kane contacted Dele after learning of the horror robberyMORE SPURS STORIESHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrongGossipSPURRED ONTottenham table contract offer for Bayern Munich’s teenage starlet Taylor BoothExclusivePASS THE TESTEngland’s NRL-based stars urge bosses to make room for a Test this yearMeanwhile, Kane went on to have his say on the proposed return of Premier League football – saying players just want to see a plan.He said: “We want to see how the Premier League give us a plan, and what that looks like and we’ll go from there.”Personally, I’m happy to start training in small groups if we are allowed and try and get back to some normality as soon as possible.”Every player’s different and everyone has there own point of view.”Kane has also generously offered to sponsor Leyton Orient’s kits for the 2020-21 season with shirts to pay thanks to coronavirus frontline workers.Ex-top cop explains why high profile footballers like Dele Alli are likely targets for violent criminalslast_img read more
