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.

Key player injured again

 

   CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant has been indicted on two felony drug charges.
 
   Bryant and former teammate De'Ante Saunders were arrested on Christmas following a traffic stop. Police say they found marijuana, prescription drugs and a loaded handgun in Saunders' car. He also was cited for drunken driving. The Browns released him from their practice squad.
 
   Bryant was suspended by former general manager Ray Farmer for Cleveland's final two games. The 25-year-old remains on the Browns' roster.
 
   Both men are scheduled to be arraigned in Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Common Pleas Court on Feb 24. Online court records listed no attorney for either.
 
   Bryant was selected by the Browns in the seventh round of the 2013 draft. He had legal issues in college at East Central Oklahoma, where he was twice arrested for selling marijuana to an undercover officer.

 
   MOUNT GILEAD, Ohio (AP) - Former Ohio State star running back Maurice Clarett has admitted driving under the influence.
 
   He pleaded guilty under a deal with prosecutors and received a suspended 60-day jail sentence Monday.
 
   Court records show all but three days were suspended. Clarett must serve two years of probation and undergo a driver intervention program. His driver's license was suspended for 180 days. Clarett's attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
 
   Clarett was traveling Interstate 71 in Morrow County on Jan 3 when a fellow motorist reported him driving erratically.
 
   Clarett was released from probation last February after a 2006 conviction on robbery and gun charges.
 
   He rushed for a team freshman record 1,237 yards and scored 18 touchdowns to help OSU to a 14-0 record and the 2002 BCS Championship.
