Russell Branyan Arrested For Allegedly Breaking Into Ex-Wife’s House, Stealing Stuff, Turning Down The Thermostat

That’s just cold.

The victim of the alleged burglary is Branyan’s ex-wife, Jill Branyan. It is unclear when the two divorced, though as of 14 months ago Russell referred to her as his wife. According to a warrant that was issued for Branyan’s arrest on Oct. 31, he broke into Jill’s house while she was sleeping, stole some things, and ###### with the thermostat. He also acknowledged to a witness that he took the items and wants to return them:

The defendant made entry into the residence of the victim without having the legal authority. The defendant and victim are divorced and the victim is the legal resident. The defendant entered while the victim was asleep and removed various items from the home. The defendant also tampered with the thermostat inside of the home, making it extremely cold. The defendant acknowleded [sic] to the witness that he had removed the items from the residence and now wanted to return them. All events took place in Davidson County Tennessee.

This is not the first time Branyan has been arrested for actions allegedly taken towards Jill. In 2008 he was arrested on domestic violence charges in a Cleveland suburb for allegedly striking her in the face, causing a cut lip, during an argument while driving.

New bombshell: Pete Rose accused of statutory rape; hit king denies claim

I thought Pete only hit on 17-or-under in blackjack.

John Dowd, the investigator whose findings led to Rose’s ban in 1989 by former MLB Commissioner Bart Giamatti, claims he was told by former Rose associate Michael Bertolini that Rose committed statutory rape on young girls during his playing and/or managerial career.

In a July 13 interview with WCHE in West Chester, Pa., that hadn’t surfaced until now, the former federal organized crime investigator said, “Michael Bertolini told us that not only did he run bets, but he ran young girls for him down in spring training. Ages 12-14. Isn’t that lovely? So that’s statutory rape every time you do that.”

Rose was floored when told of the allegations in a phone interview Thursday with NJ Advance Media. He vehemently denied the accusations.

“Oh, my God!” the 74-year-old Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies great said while driving from California to Las Vegas. “Where was my family all of this time in spring training? I never went to spring training without my family except for first year when I was a rookie. It’s shocking.

Ex-Tiger Evan Reed gets year of probation for assault charge

Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Evan Reed was formally sentenced Friday after pleading no contest last month to a misdemeanor aggravated assault charge.

Reed had two third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges dropped July 17 as part of the plea deal before Wayne County Circuit Court Shannon Walker. Reed was given one year of probation Friday by Walker.

Walker also ordered Reed to perform 120 hours of community service and must pay $4,480 for his victim’s medical fees among various other fees. Reed, who also must have no contact with the complainant, has 42 days to appeal the sentence.

The criminal sexual conduct charges carried a 15-year maximum penalty.

Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Suzette Samuels spoke briefly on Reed’s actions, saying: “I believe this was a case of unbridled arrogance.”
