Atlanta Falcon Chris Owens says his ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order against him to exact revenge for refusing to continue their relationship, according to court documents.
Latia Terry told Owens he will “never see his baby again” and promised to “ruin him,” according to documents filed in Gwinnett County, Georgia, on Thursday. The documents, filed on behalf of Owens by his attorneys, request that Terry’s petition for a restraining order be denied.
Though she now claims she is afraid of Owens, court papers allege that Terry regularly left their child in his sole custody, even after the violence she now alleges. She even let him travel with the 9-month-old child, with her permission, according to the documents.
PHOENIX – The sole survivor of a shooting spree in southwestern Arizona says all she could think of as she lay bleeding from seven gunshot wounds was that she was going to die.
Linda Clatone (CLUH’-tohn) told The Associated Press from her Phoenix hospital room Friday that she was jarred awake at 5 a.m. that June 2 morning by a loud knock at the door.
When she answered, 73-year-old Carey Hal Dyess shot her in the face, neck, chest and shoulder as she cried out, “Why? Why?” and put her arms up to try to stop the bullets.
Dyess fatally shot four others that morning before turning the gun on himself. He targeted his ex-wife Theresa Lorraine Sigurdson, her divorce attorney and others who knew her.
Clatone says Sigurdson was her best friend.

NEW YORK – NBA owners have relaxed their insistence on non-guaranteed contracts in a new collective bargaining agreement, but players cautioned that isn’t enough because the league is still seeking a hard salary cap.
Even so, the proposal Friday by the owners during a 4 1/2-hour meeting was perhaps their most significant movement yet as the sides try to agree to a new deal before the current one expires June 30.
The sides will meet again Tuesday, with Commissioner David Stern saying it will be an important meeting to determine if enough progress can be made in time to avoid a work stoppage.
Also Friday, the league canceled its Las Vegas Summer League, which would have started in early July.

LOS ANGELES (AFP) – A teenager dubbed the “Barefoot Bandit” pleaded guilty Friday to a string of audacious crimes across the United States, which ended with his arrest in the Bahamas.
Colton Harris-Moore, 20, confessed to his crimes in the northwestern US state of Washington, where he was flown last year following his arrest after a high-speed boat chase.
Harris-Moore — whose nickname stems from the discovery of bare footprints at his crime scenes — admitted seven charges including bank robbery, stealing an aircraft, flying a plane without a license and stealing a boat.
