    WASHINGTON -- Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman says things "got out of hand" when Chicago Bulls centre Joakim Noah got into a shouting match with a Wizards security official during the Bulls shootaround ahead of Game 3 in the teams first-round series. Dorian Johnson Cardinas Jersey . Said Wittman: "Thats got to be something from our side that shouldnt happen." The Chicago Sun Times reported that Wittman and Wizards staffer Jackie Miles swore at each other following the Bulls shootaround Friday morning. The paper said Miles was trying to get Noah off the court before Noah was ready to leave. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau called the incident "much ado about nothing." Chad Williams Cardinas Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season. Budda Baker Jersey . Toronto has lost six of its last eight games but is coming off Thursdays 7-3 victory at Kansas City. Juan Francisco and Colby Rasmus both went deep for the Blue Jays, who are second in the American League with 34 home runs on the season.CONROE, Texas - Adrian Peterson wont be coming back to the field any time soon.A Texas judge on Wednesday tentatively set a Dec. 1 trial date for the Minnesota Vikings star running back on a charge of felony child abuse for using a wooden switch to discipline his 4-year-old son earlier this year. Peterson is on paid leave and the Vikings final game of the regular season is Dec. 28.Theres no guarantee the trial will begin Dec. 1, either. Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon indicated he intends to file a motion to recuse Judge Kelly Case after the judge allegedly called attorneys in the case media whores. Case apologized, but a Nov. 4 hearing was scheduled on whether to assign a new judge.Defence attorney Rusty Hardin said he didnt mind Cases comment because hes been called worse. But he said he wants to try the case as quickly as possible since Peterson cant play in the NFL while the charge is pending.The only way to get this solved is to have a quick and speedy trial, Hardin said afterward.Accompanied by his wife and with his mother sitting behind him in the gallery, Peterson did not speak during his initial court appearance and did not enter a plea. Hardin has indicated Peterson will plead not guilty to the charge that carries a penalty of up to two years in prison.Peterson arrived in a black Cadillac Escalade at the suburban Houston courthouse. Nearby was a person wearing a wildcat costume and holding a sign that said Free AP in sparkling letters, prompting a chuckle from Hardin. Several women stood near the courthouse entrance shrieking and talking about how handsome Peterson looked after he entered the building.Peterson, who was put on leave under a special roster exemption from the NFL commissioner, was indicted last month. He has said he never intended to harm his son and was only disciplining him in the same way he had been as a child growing up in East Texas.Corporal punishment is legal in every U.S. state. Should Petersons case go to trial, legal experts say, the final determination of what is reasonable discipline will be based on the standards found in the local community a€” and Texas law offers no definition of what that is. It says the use of non-deadly force against someone younger than 18 is justified if a parent or guardian reasonably believes the force is necessary to discipline the child or to safeguard or promote his welfare.The Texas Attorney Generals Office notes that belts and brushes are accepted by many as legitimate disciplinary tools, but electrical or phone cords, boards, yardsticks, ropes, shoes, and wires are likely to be considered instruments of abuse.F. Scott McCown, director of the Childrens Rights Clinic at the University of Texas School of LLaw that represents children in abuse and neglect cases, said people can have abstract debates about what is reasonable but they tend to come to a consensus when looking at a specific case. T. J. Logan Youth Jersey. Some of the factors that tend to be used to decide whether corporal punishment was unreasonable include whether a child needed medical attention and if the disciplining left visible marks and bruises, McCown said. According to court records, Petersons son suffered cuts, marks and bruising to his thighs, back and on one of his testicles.If Petersons case goes to trial, prosecutors and defence attorneys will be picking jurors in a county with conservative beliefs and one that has also banned corporal punishment in its largest school district. E. Tay Bond, an attorney who has worked in Montgomery County for 16 years, said the potential jury pool in the Peterson case will likely not be economically or racially diverse.Because jurors in are summoned via email, the jury pool will be made up of individuals with a higher socio-economic status, who tend to be more conservative, Bond said.People will still discipline their children ... As long as its appropriate and not excessive, its not a crime, Wilke said.Its unclear how many cases involving abuse claims stemming from corporal punishment are dealt with either by Texas courts or CPS. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, CPSs parent agency, doesnt keep statistics detailing whether an abuse case involved corporal punishment. McCown said that in most of the cases his clinic has handled, usually parents do not end up going to jail.Lucy Wilke, a prosecutor in Kerr County for 17 1/2 years, recalled a case in 2010 in which an 11-year-old boy was hit nearly 20 times with a three-foot piece of looped wire by his father for not taking out the trash.This was just excessive. This was abuse and not corporal punishment, said Wilke, who helped convict the Kerrville, Texas, man on a charge of injury to a child.David Dill was sentenced to four years in prison after prosecutors accused him of binding his sons hands, feet and mouth with duct tape and then using the looped wire to hit the boy.The range of punishment for injury to a child charge depends on the defendants intent. Peterson is accused of injuring his son through his reckless actions, while Dill was accused of intentionally or knowingly causing injury to his child. He faced up to 10 years in prison.In court documents, Dill denied doing anything wrong. Like Peterson, Dill said he disciplined his son similar to how he had been punished as a child.___AP Sports Writer Kristie Rieken contributed to this report.___Follow Juan A.
