The parents and two sisters of Bryan Stow made a brief appearance Monday outside San Francisco General Hospital. Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic, is being treated there for a traumatic brain injury suffered in the March attack. Los Angeles raided an East Hollywood apartment building Sunday and arrested 31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Garcia withdraws from Open qualifying PLANO, Texas — Sergio Garcia has withdrawn from British Open qualifying because of an infected fingernail. Garcia has played in every British Open dating to 1998. He had to qualify this year because he has fallen to No. 73 in the world. The 31- year-old Spaniard joined other PGA Tour players Monday in the rain- plagued International Final Qualifier at Gleneagles Country Club. Storms stopped play before the first of two 18-hole rounds, and officials decided to shorten the event to 18 holes. Garcia, who previously said he would not go through U.S. Open qualifying next month, said on Twitter that he had to withdraw because of an infected fingernail on his left hand that made it difficult to grip the club. Deliberations begin in Kerrigan trial WOBURN, Mass. — A jury began deliberations Monday in the manslaughter trial of Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan’s brother after a prosecutor told the panel that the defendant was an “angry, mean, nasty, drunk son” when he killed his father and a defense attorney said longstanding heart disease was to blame. Mark Kerrigan, 46, is charged in the 2010 death of his 70-year-old father, Daniel Kerrigan, at the family’s home in Stoneham, just north of Boston. The Woburn Superior Court jury deliberated about 4 1/2 hours Monday before going home for the day without reaching a verdict. Armstrong supported against doping claims LONDON — In the wake of fresh doping allegations against Lance Armstrong, cycling’s world governing body and one of his former teammates have come to the defense of the seven-time Tour de France champion. Tyler Hamilton, another ex- teammate of Armstrong, alleges the American was involved in a systematic doping program with the U.S. Postal team to win the 1999, 2000 and 2001 Tours. Also Monday, the International Cycling Union denied claims it helped cover up a positive sample submitted by Armstrong at the Tour de Suisse in 2001. Army football great Joe Steffy dies at 85 WEST POINT, N.Y. — Joe Steffy, who helped pave the way for Heisman trophy winners Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis on some of Army’s best teams and won the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top lineman in 1947, has died. He was 85. Army announced that Steffy died at St. Luke’s-Cornwall Hospital’s Newburgh campus on Saturday. TODAY’S SCOREBOARD Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS — Armed with a key victory in the courts, NFL owners gathered Monday for their annual spring meetings. Usually, it’s a time for discussing Super Bowl sites and rules changes. This year, the 32 owners primarily will talk strategy for this summer as the labor impasse goes through court proceedings. They might even gloat a bit after obtaining a permanent stay of an injunction blocking the lockout of the players that began March 12. The labor situation remains something of a stalemate, locked in the courts until the league’s full appeal of that injunction is heard June 3. But the 2-1 ruling on the stay contained strong language indicating the NFL will win its appeal. “I think as time goes on everybody on both sides realizes that this doesn’t get better, it doesn’t get easier,” NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash said after attending committee meetings. “I think people are also realizing that the litigation alternative is not one that’s going to get a quick resolution. ... Everyone focuses on the next court date and it sort of freezes people in place. “The only way we’re going to solve this is by saying, ‘OK, let’s put this behind us. Let’s put the litigation on hold and let’s solve our own problems.’” Basically, not much action is required by the league until the legality of the lockout is determined by the 8th U.S. District Court in St. Louis. While the lockout’s in force, teams can’t communicate with players — and NFL teams are dead in the water when it comes to training for the 2011 season. That stagnation could threaten the start of training camps at the end of July — at the very least.
