Griffin faced some legal issues in Tennessee in April when Nashville Police say they arrested him for drunkenly punching out a front window of a downtown hotel. Charges of vandalism and public intoxication were later dismissed.

Gretna Police Officer Charlie Rispoli, a 14-year veteran, called the former bartender a “vile idiot” who “needs a round… and I don’t mean the kind that she used to serve.” Fellow Officer Angelo Varisco reportedly liked the post.
The department said the officers violated its social media policy.
Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson called the incident “an embarrassment to our department.”
“These officers certainly acted in a manner which was unprofessional alluding to a violent act to be conducted against a sitting U.S. congressman,” he said during a press conference.
The post was reportedly taken down by Friday afternoon.
(CBS Local/CBS Pittsburgh)- Training camps have begun for some NFL teams, while the rest kick theirs off over the course of this week. As the players stretch and warm up for the coming season, fantasy owners begin their prep for their upcoming league drafts. After a several-month layoff with no football, it’s understandable if your knowledge isn’t what it should be. So, we’re here to help you get back up to speed, as you lay your plans for taking home that fantasy championship belt this season.
With both the quarterbacks and running backs out of the way, it’s now time to move to the next skill position on the roster: wide receiver. At this spot, rosters usually have at least two slots in the starting lineup, much like they do for running backs. That means planning your draft so that your starters combine to make up for the value lost if you can’t grab one of the top running backs. Or, if you have a later pick in the first round, you can snag one of the top receivers and when the draft doubles back grab one of the next level of running backs. The strategy is up to you, but below you’ll find the top five guys in CBSSports.com’s projections, followed by the rest of the top 25, so you can plan based on where your picks fall.
Of note on the projected stats, we’re using scoring for standard leagues as the ranking system. But, PPR projections are in parentheses. At the end of each line, you’ll find the player’s average draft position.
Adams is coming off a massive year, in which he posted 1.45 fantasy points per game thanks to 111 catches, 1,300 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns. That production came in the midst of a tumultuous year for the Packers and their offense. Now, with a new head coach and a hopefully healthy Aaron Rodgers, Adams is projected to rank as the top receiver in both standard and PPR leagues.
Hopkins has been one of the most consistent fantasy options throughout his career, despite having… not the best collection of quarterbacks throwing to him. Now, with Deshaun Watson, Hopkins has produced two of the best seasons of his career and has posted double-digit touchdowns each year. One thing to note is that Hopkins is still recovering from shoulder surgery this offseason and is currently on the physically unable to perform list. His status for Week 1 is not known yet, so if your draft is in the coming weeks, keep that in mind.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate that the Cleveland Browns have a top-five option at receiver for the first time in awhile. Beckham Jr. comes over via trade and immediately upgrades the weaponry at Baker Mayfield’s disposal, which was already pretty solid. Whether or not you think the Browns will be good, Beckham Jr.’s production is reliable at this point. As long as he’s healthy, which he has been for most of his career, Beckham should be a dominant force once again, this time in a new uniform.
Before getting to the on-field production, we have to note that the allegations against Hill were horrible, and it surprised many that the League didn’t hand down any suspension as discipline. That said, the League has spoken, and Hill will be available once more as Patrick Mahomes’ top option. That combination made for an explosive year from Hill, in which he averaged 17 yards per catch and hauled in 12 touchdowns. The projection system is expecting a little bit of a step back, but not much heading into this year.
Fantasy owners everywhere are hoping a coordinator change will help free up Jones a little more in the red zone, allowing him to convert for more than just the eight touchdowns he snagged last season. Jones led the league in receiving yards last season and ranked T-3rd in receptions, but caught just the 11th-most touchdowns among guys at his position. The Matt Ryan-Jones connection needs to get better in the red zone to boost Jones to the top of the list. But, keep in mind, Jones has topped eight touchdowns just once in his career. That was all the way back in his second season in the league in 2012.
With multiple receiver spots available on the roster for most leagues, it’s important to have a plan of attack that nets you a pair of solid options at the position. While the top guys above will put up massive points, the guys in the list below are all solid starting options that should be available for you as you plan your roster based on the picks that you have in the draft.
Police said the suspect pointed a gun at a 45-year-old woman outside her Ozone Park home and pulled the trigger.

“I’ve been here since ’96, so we’re kind of used to it, but the problem is some of the newer people that have moved in are really having trouble,” Woodbridge resident George Weber told CBS2. “There’s so much pressure that it’s pushing back up into the sewers. It’s popping the caps up, and their basements are flooding.”

“It was pretty crazy, it was really wild. You can see all these trees are destroyed,” Howell resident Steven Donaghue said. “My wife, she checked with the radar, and apparently it came right through the area. I don’t know if it was a twister or microburst or what have you, but it was pretty cool.”
The flash flood warning will be in effect until 7 a.m., but the rain and residual flooding could be an issue all day.
