Klitschko broke left hand

Wladimir Klitschko fought most of his title bout against Lamon Brewster with a broken left hand.

Assistant trainer Jamen Ali Bashir told the Associated Press Sunday that the heavyweight champion broke his middle finger during his technical knockout of Lamon Brewster Saturday night at Cologne, Germany.

Klitschko iced his hand immediately after the match, and is now wearing a cast from his left hand up past his elbow, Bashir said before boarding an airplane at the Cologne airport.

“It will take eight weeks to heal,” Bashir said.


Broadcaster Maas arrested

Broadcaster Bill Maas, a former All-Pro lineman, was released from jail after his arrest on drug possession and weapons charges during a roadside check, at Peoria, Ill.

Maas and passenger Sarah Murphy were released Sunday and ordered to return to court August 21, jail officials said.

The two were arrested Friday night after authorities stopped Maas’ sport utility vehicle along Illinois Route 116 . They asked to search the vehicle after Maas appeared nervous, officials said. The search uncovered a .22-caliber revolver, 5 grams of suspected marijuana, 6 grams of suspected cocaine and 28 pills of Ecstasy, police said.


Fans storm field, match abandoned

Polish fans stormed the field and clashed with riot police at halftime of a soccer game between a Polish team and a Lithuanian team at Vilnius, Lithuania.

Lithuanian TV footage showed police in riot gear using tear gas to disperse the fans. About 100 fans were arrested, Lithuanian police said. Most of those arrested were later released. One officer and a handful of fans received minor injuries, police said.

Vetra FC, which is based in Vilnius, was leading 2-0 when hundreds of Legia Warsaw fans ran onto the field during the break.
