Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

WEST PALM BEACH (WPEC) -  Today we had another great example of our local professional athletes continuing to give back to the community.

75 kids from Butler family large day care in Pahokee were invited to Wal-Mart in West Palm Beach for the Anquan Boldin Foundation's holiday shopping event.

The kids, aged 3-12 were given a 100 dollar gift card from Boldin, the former Pahokee star wide receiver who now plays for the Baltimore Ravens. Anquan's mother says her son just loves giving back.Anquan Boldin Foundation Gives Back

NFL-DOMESTIC ABUSE

UNDATED (AP) -- The NFL is facing yet another case of domestic abuse.

Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer has been arrested on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in late July involving a 27-year-old woman and an 18-month-old child. The Cardinals said they became aware of the situation on Wednesday and are cooperating with the investigation. He has been deactivated from all team functions.

Police say one of the counts was "aggravated assault causing a fracture."

Meanwhile, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy will not play this weekend, and it could be a while before either player sees any game action.

The Vikings put Peterson on the exempt-commissioner's permission list, meaning he is off the active roster again while he deals with his legal affairs. General manager Rick Spielman would not put a timeframe on when Peterson might be back.

Team owner Zygi (ZIH'-gee) Wilf said the team "made a mistake" in bringing back its superstar earlier this week following his indictment on a felony child-abuse charge in Texas.

The All-Pro running back is accused of injuring his 4-year-old son by spanking him with a wooden switch earlier this year.

The Panthers have removed Greg Hardy from the team's active roster until the Pro Bowl defensive end's domestic violence case is resolved. The Pro Bowl lineman has been placed on the exempt-commissioner's permission list.

Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman says Hardy will continue to be paid and is allowed to be at the team facility, but will not practice. Hardy earns more than $770,000 each week during the regular season.

Hardy is appealing a July 15 conviction for assault on a female and communicating threats.

NFL-DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) -- The father of a woman who once dated Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is calling for commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') to resign because of the way he handled the women's abuse case.

Clarence Watley says his daughter, Rasheedah Watley, was abused by Marshall.

Marshall was with Denver at the time and now plays for Chicago. He was suspended for three games in 2008, but the suspension was reduced to one game. He has denied the allegations.

Watley says he and others wrote to Goodell about the case and never heard back from league officials. Watley called the NFL's investigation one-sided.

NFL-DRUG POLICY

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL and the players union have agreed on a new drug policy that will include HGH testing, perhaps as early as the end of this month.

The new performance-enhancing drug policy will have a more immediate impact this weekend. Denver receiver Wes Welker, Dallas Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick and St. Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey had been suspended for four games. All can return Sunday under the new rules in which players who test positive for banned stimulants in the offseason will no longer be suspended. Instead, they will be referred to the substance abuse program.

NFL-49ERS-KAEPERNICK FINE

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Colin Kaepernick (KAH'-lihn KAP'-ur-nihgk) says he has been fined more than $11,000 by the NFL and he will appeal the penalty for what was called "inappropriate language".

Kaepernick was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct following an interception against Chicago Sunday when he was engaged with the Bears Lamarr Houston. The 49ers quarterback maintains he didn't say anything inappropriate and that Houston's post-game remarks back him up.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Just two games separate the top two teams in the National League West following a first-inning meltdown by the Los Angeles Dodgers and a ninth-inning rally by the San Francisco Giants.

Justin Morneau hit a three-run homer and a two-run single while Colorado was scoring eight times in the first inning of a 16-2 laugher against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Morneau tied his season high with six RBIs and went 3-for-4 to lift his average to a National League-leading .320. Charlie Blackmon went 5-for-5 with a solo homer and four runs scored as the last-place Rockies took the rubber match of their three-game set with the first-place Dodgers.

Matt Duffy hit a tiebreaking, two-run single in the ninth inning to lift San Francisco over the Diamondbacks 4-2 in Arizona. Madison Bumgarner fell short in his bid to join Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw as the majors' only 19-game winners, allowing two runs and seven hits in six innings.

The Giants have cut their NL West deficit in half since last night and currently lead the NL wild-card race by three games over Pittsburgh and 4 1/2 games over Milwaukee.
