Manute Bol, Being Boxed Again

Remember earlier this month, when we spotlighted former NBAer Manute Bol and his heroic efforts to shed light on the horrors currently going on in Darfur? Well, we still think his cause is noble, but some new news has us less convinced about him.

Yesterday, in one of those stories that just aren't any fun all around, Manute was arrested on disorderly conduct charges after a domestic violence incident with his wife. The details are hazy, but both Bol and his wife arrived at the police together to report the incident. Bol claimed that his wife — who was also arrested — threw a phone at him and punched him in the head, and she says he shoved her.

No injuries have been reported, which is a relief. Bol is 43, and his wife is 27. Her height is not known.
