A court commissioner in Prince George’s County, Md., has issued a criminal summons charging former heavyweight boxing champion Riddick Bowe with assaulting his wife at their Fort Washington home.

Police said Judy Bowe, 30, reported the incident about 3 p.m. Tuesday at a police substation, saying the incident had occurred about an hour earlier. Officers took a report and referred her to a court commissioner because they found no evidence of physical injury, police said.

Two limousine rides made by a handful of football players in November 1995 continue to haunt the Miami Hurricanes. Starting quarterback Ryan Clement has been implicated in one of two limo rides at the center of an NCAA investigation. Clement is not the focus of the investigation and Miami athletic director Paul Dee said his eligibility is not in danger. Yatil Green, another player who was in the limo, has said he received money from a representative of a sports agent, placing the Hurricanes’ Carquest Bowl victory in jeopardy.

Alabama lost its second offensive star in as many days when it suspended leading rusher Dennis Riddle for the season-opener against Houston for an unspecified violation of team rules.
