Truth & Rumors
Police: White strikes victim with belt
Titans running back LenDale White was allegedly involved in an altercation during an incident earlier this month in Denver, but on Monday the city's district attorney refused to prosecute the case. The Denver police department said the case has been reviewed and "is closed." According to a police document where an aggravated assault offense was reviewed, the incident took place on Feb. 14 in Denver when White and other parties were involved in a verbal altercation after a minor vehicle accident. White then allegedly struck Leslie Joe Hoch, a white male. "The verbal argument turned physical and (White) began striking and shoving the victim," the offense report said. According to the report, White, listed as an unknown suspect, "began striking the victim with a belt and belt buckle" before the parties got in their vehicle and fled. Hoch required hospitalization for lacerations, the offense report stated. (Tennessean)

Three teams eyeing Marbury
Could Stephon Marbury's rocky career with the Knicks officially end today? Knicks president Donnie Walsh insists that he's not looking to come to a buyout agreement when he and Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni meet with Marbury and his representatives in an arbitration hearing today in Manhattan. The Celtics, who have two open roster spots, are said to be very interested in signing Marbury. Other possible destinations are the Lakers and Heat. Walsh indicated yesterday, however, that the Knicks aren't all that interested in freeing up Marbury to sign with a possible playoff opponent. (Newsday)

Why Crede left ChiSox for Twins
Third baseman Joe Crede expressed a desire to join the Minnesota Twins after sensing he wasn't returning to the White Sox last winter. "This is definitely a team that I wanted to be a part of," Crede said Sunday at a news conference. "Chicago didn't express their interest, so coming over here was definitely a team that I really admired the way they play. I knew my style was going to fit in with this team. They've got a great group of guys here. They're going to put a competitive team on the field, and as a player that's all you can ask for, a chance to get to the postseason, and this team has got a very realistic shot at doing that." Crede said he wasn't surprised that he wasn't returning to the Sox. (Chicago Tribune)
