PICABO street charged in fight with dad

SALT LAKE CITY — Olympic gold medalist and World Cup champion Picabo Street has been charged with assault and domestic violence after authorities say she pushed her father down the stairs in a Utah home last month.

Street, 44, told police she locked Roland Street, 76, in the basement of a house near Park City after pushing him and then called authorities, documents released Wednesday said. She said her father pulled her hair in the Dec. 23 fight, which police say her three children witnessed.

Roland Street told police his daughter got angry and started yelling after he bumped his car into the house while trying to leave, documents said. When the two went inside the house, a physical altercation occurred. Picabo Street was charged about two weeks later.

Her attorney, Jason Richards, said she denies any wrongdoing in what she considers a private family matter.

Street won the super-G at the 1998 Olympics. She won silver in the downhill at the '94 Olympics and competed in the 2002 Games. In '95 she was the first American woman to win the World Cup downhill season title.

Leicester remained three points ahead of third-place Manchester City, which endured a goalless stalemate at home against Everton.

FIFA: The sport's governing body fired its top administrator, Jerome Valcke, for the second time, cutting ties with the secretary general four months after he was suspended while under investigation for wrongdoing. Valcke's firing stemmed from a report by accounting firm KPMG that was commissioned about six months ago, the Associated Press reported. The report's focus was Valcke's personal conduct, including accusations about his expenses and private jet use, the AP said.
