Former NFL player again under arrest

Former pro football player Donald Reche Caldwell, a standout wide receiver at the University of Florida and Jefferson High School in Tampa, is in trouble with the law again.

Caldwell, 35, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. Jail records indicate he had the drug ecstasy when he was arrested at 10420 N McKinley Drive, north of the Busch Gardens amusement park.

He was already facing charges from his arrest in January, when police say an undercover investigation found he was one of three ringleaders operating an illegal gambling operation in Tampa. He is facing charges of running an illegal gambling house and bookmaking.

Caldwell spent six seasons in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins.

    The comedian Dick Gregory rose to national prominence in the early 1960s as a black satirist whose audacious style of humor was biting, subversive and topical, mostly centered on current events, politics and above all, racial tensions. His trademark was the searing punchline.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
