The Antonio Brown drama isn't over. The wide receiver has now been accused of sexual assault by his former trainer, Britney Taylor. The lawsuit claims Taylor, a gymnast who met Brown when they were both at Central Michigan University, was sexually assaulted on three occasions in 2017 and 2018. Brown, "denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit," according to his lawyer. The Patriots released a statement acknowledging the NFL will be investigating the allegations.

A referee disqualified a swimmer from Dimond High School in Alaska after she won her 100-meter freestyle event for a "uniform violation" which in the referee's words meant "butt cheek touching butt cheek." The Anchorage School District said it would reverse the disqualification and possibly decertify the official saying, “We cannot tolerate discrimination of any kind, and certainly not based on body shape."
