Jail For Bloody Nose, UFC, Todd Bodine & Stephen Strasburg: 7/20, Vol. 190, 3rd Edition

What a week, it has passed, every trial I'll outlast….bread of heaven, feed me till I want no more!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Todd Bodine set to make his
milestone 200th start
Potential jail time for a bloody nose?  Boxer Martin Tucker unfortunately suffered a bloody nose in his boxing match in which he won, his only victory in seven matches, but it was bitter sweet since FBI agent Robert Schmitz had plans with the swab that was used on Tucker’s nose.  You see, Schmitz was investigating bank robbery at Monroe County Community Credit Union in Temperance, MI and was aware of Tuckers boxing match.  Somehow Schmitz obtained the bloody swab and compared it with DNA on a mask believed to have been used in the robbery and the steering wheel of the get-a-way car and it was a match.  So Tucker is alleged of wearing the mask and using a handgun in the $5,400 robbery and was arrested earlier this week along with another suspect who was indicted in November.
