WOODBRIDGE ARREST

Australian tennis star Todd Woodbridge was arrested and fined $100 after an altercation with a female security guard near the athletes' village, police and Olympic officials said.

Woodbridge, one of the world's top doubles players, pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct after the incident early Wednesday morning at the North Avenue gate of the village.

Bob Brennan, spokesman for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, said the incident involved "an altercation, pushing and shoving between the athlete and the security officer."

Australian Olympic Committee president John Coates said there was a "misunderstanding" between Woodbridge and the woman officer after he got out of a car driven by his father-in-law.
