Law Rumors

Brooklyn Nets forward Rodions Kurucs made a brief city court appearance in his domestic violence case Monday, just two days before his team’s home opener. The 6-foot-9 NBA star arrived in Brooklyn court dressed in a dark suit and stayed mum as he was ordered back to court Nov. 19. Kurucs, 21 — whose team will face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Nets’ home opener Wednesday — is accused of assaulting his 32-year-old live-in girlfriend June 27 in their Gowanus, Brooklyn, apartment.
Two men, one of whom is on the run, are facing capital murder charges in connection with the fatal shooting of professional basketball player and former Texas Tech basketball standout Andre Emmett. Capital murder warrants were obtained Saturday for the arrests of 29-year-old Michael Lucky and 32-year-old Keith Johnson, police said. Johnson is currently jailed on unrelated charges and his bond will be set by a magistrate. Lucky remains at-large.
