Published article: Now, it has been said that many athletes have a “sense of entitlement” and think they are too good to pay for certain things when they make it to the big leagues…but a comp drink and some designer duds from a fashion designer looking to advertise in no way equates to the sheer foolishness this WORKING NFL athlete is accused of confusing as a freebie.

Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle is accused of stealing a bottle of cologne and underwear from a Dillard’s department store Monday night.

According to ESPN, store security witnessed Randle concealing items in a bag.  When they confronted him in the parking lot, they discovered a two-pack of black Polo underwear valued at $39.50 and a “tester” bottle of Gucci Black cologne valued at $84.

Randle reportedly makes $495,000 yearly and was charged with a Class B misdemeanor charge for theft.

Chalk it up as another delay in Adrian Peterson getting his day in court.

It appears the recusal hearing involving the Judge that the Montgomery County District Attorney wants off the high profile case has been delayed again.

Prosecutors now say the reset date is October 22 at 1:30 pm in the 9th District Court.

Montgomery County D.A. Brett Ligon says he wants Judge Kelly Case removed from Peterson’s child abuse case because of personal bias.

That’s after Judge Case admitted to calling Ligon and Peterson’s attorney Rusty Hardin media whores.

Hardin has made it clear being called a media whore is not an issue with him and he’s fine with Judge Case staying on the bench.

Hardin, a veteran headline making attorney, says he’s been called worse.

First Assistant District Attorney Phil Grant says he was informed on the new date late this morning.

In the meantime,  Peterson is set for pre-trial November 4th with a trial date of December 1st.

If Peterson, who has been suspended from the Minnesota Vikings, is found guilty he faces two years in prison on the felony charge.

EBOLA-facebook

The Factor is hearing some high schools may be getting tough on students who are joking and claiming to have Ebola.  A school administrator, who didn’t want to be identified, said some students are claiming to have the deadly virus and then they’ll spit on another student.  That administrator says he has vowed to suspend any student on his Houston campus caught making the threat.  He says his concern is more about the student spitting on a classmate than the claims of having Ebola.  That administrator says it has happened at other local schools but he will not tolerate it on his campus.
