Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Lawyer Says Pounceys Won't Be Charged

MIAMI (AP) - The attorney for NFL offensive linemen Mike and Maurkice Pouncey says no charges will filed against the twin brothers stemming from a July altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.
   Lawyer Jeffrey Ostrow said in an email Wednesday that Miami-Dade County prosecutors informed him the brothers won't be charged in the fight at Cameo nightclub.
   Maurkice Pouncey plays center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Mike Pouncey plays center and guard for the Miami Dolphins. Both played college football at Florida.
   Three people have sued the Pounceys for civil damages, claiming they harassed one person with homophobic remarks and physically attacked him. Another person claims she was beaten when she tried to intervene.
   Ostrow says the claims are false and are being made solely for attempted financial gain.
