Kenny Rogers Arrested

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers pitcher Kenny Rogers now
has more than a 20-game suspension and 50-thousand-dollar fine to
worry about.

The Rangers' lefty turned himself in to authorities today after
he was charged with misdemeanor assault in the shoving of two
cameramen.

An Arlington police spokeswoman says Rogers is charged with
Class A misdemeanor assault with injury in the shoving of KDFW
TV cameraman Larry Rodriguez. The spokeswoman says police also
will mail to Rogers' attorney a Class C misdemeanor assault citation for the shoving of Fox Sports Net Southwest cameraman David Mammeli.

A Class A misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to four-thousand dollars. A Class C misdemeanor is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

Police spokeswoman Christy Gilfour says Fox Sports -- which owns
the camera Rogers damaged in the shoving of Rodriguez -- has
declined to press criminal charges.

Rogers is free on $1,500 bond. His suspension and fine by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is on appeal.
