Two of the nation’s top sprinters were suspended by Florida State officials Thursday, hours after the athletes were arrested following an early morning poolside shooting incident.

A police report stated that Ronell J. Mance, who won a silver medal in the 2012 Olympic Games in the 4×400 relay, and Stephen Newbold, the MVP at the recent Atlantic Coast Conference indoor track and field championships, were arrested moments after Tallahassee police were alerted that the shots were being fired at an off-campus student apartment complex at about 3:30 a.m. There were no injuries reported.

Newbold initially ran away from two pursuing officers, but was soon located by a police dog, according to the probable cause affidavit.

The affidavit said Newbold was arrested for discharging a firearm in public and resisting without violence. Mance was arrested for unauthorized use of an ID and resisting without violence. He had Newbold’s ID which had an altered date on it, which is a third degree felony under Florida law.

Newbold told police that Mance was using the card to get into a local bar.

One witness told police that she heard two gunshots and when she looked out of her window she saw a male, who was later identified as Newbold, shoot a hand gun two more times in the direction of the swimming pool. The witness said she heard the shots and saw the muzzle flashes each time. Another account in the affidavit said the shots were aimed at a person in the pool area.

Two of the other three males questioned by police at the scene were also members of the school’s track and field team, which annually ranks among the country’s best.

    At least negros never “get them sum shootin lessons”

  • MekongDelta69

    Hey c’mon. Give da boyz in da hood a break.
    They were just trying out for the Olympic skeet shooting team.

  • No women at the 3:30AM “pool party”.

    A down-low negro pool party perhaps?

    • Morris LeChat

      they are not professional aff’leets yet, they don’t have the money for hookers and blow.

    • Not Politically Correct

      Like low-down White gay pool parties don’t exist. Please!

      • Bill

        I’m sure they do, but for SOME reason, we never hear about shots being fired at such parties. Seems to be only done by ONE ethnic group………..

      • Dan Reardon

        You somehow managed to completely miss the point! And “down low” not “low down” is the appropriate slang for undercover homosexuality.

  • toady

    what an inspiration for the kids

    Never try to outrun a dog.

    • RisingReich

      I checked out the original story and it unfortunately doesn’t say the breed of dog.

      I love it when it turns out to be a German Shepherd or Belgian Malinois running down a fleeing black ‘youf’.

      • Eric Shun

        Those breeds are racist dogs.

        • RisingReich

          LOL I can’t tell if you’re serious or joking.

          I have a hunch there might be something genetic about that. They weren’t bred around blacks obviously. Come to think of it I’ve personally never seen a black own one, either.

          • brengunn

            George Foreman had a German Shepherd around the time he fought Ali in the ‘Rumble in the Jungle’. It’s one of the reasons the natives took against him, as the Belgians used that breed to keep the locals in line.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        The breed I like most is the Komondor, the Hungarian mop dog, though the one who liked me the most was Roxanne, a wolf. I used to break open bones and dig the marrow out for her, and she eventually would bring me bones. Staying at my friends’ home, I slept on the floor, and Roxie always slept right next to me. Neither of us were alphas there, so I suppose it made sense. Roxanne was a big girl, about 145 pounds and liked it when I sang “These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things”. She’d thump her tail on the floor and run around in a circle. I was one of her favorite things. Glenn said I was completely insane, singing to a wolf.

        When humans tamed them (or did they tame us?) we seem to have left the African’ts out. Roxie absolutely hated blacks.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          Africans have never domesticated a single species, so it’s not surprising that dogs (and most animals) hate them. They also tend to be terribly cruel to any pet they might own.

          • Luis

            Not quite true – the basenji, the telomian, and the azawakh are 3 dog breeds developed by Bantus.

          • Bill

            Never heard of them, but am willing to bet they are NOT working dogs, like say collies, seeing eye dogs, etc. Not if developed by bantus. I’d bet half of them are on the gubmint payroll though.

        • IMEinar

          Hi Michael- This is pretty weird. Just a few days ago I dug the marrow out of leg bones for my dog, a Fila Brasileiro. I still have a some left in the refrigerator, I also sing to my dog- nothing in particular, just whatever is in my head. I also play the flute for him. My dog has never seen a black, but whenever he sees darker people, especially poorly dressed ones, he charges. Filas were used to recover runaway slaves in Brazil, so maybe it is in the breeding.
          I recommend the Fila to all amren people wanting to get a guard dog. Filas guard naturally- it is in the breeding. They are extremely loyal to family, and are very mistrustful of strangers. If need be they will die protecting you. There are Fila breeders in North Carolina, Washington, and California, although I got mine from a neighbor. The Brazilians say- Filo a Fila: As faithful as a Fila. As a last thought, give them meat, not dogfood.

        • RisingReich

          I have always had a liking for German Shepherds. Grew up around them. Awesome family dogs, highly intelligent, trainable, and loyal.

          I also like half wolf cross-bred dogs, too.

    • bigone4u

      I once read that the large lung capacity of dogs means they can run for miles without rest. Fast? Roy Rogers named his German Shepherd Bullet because he was one fast dog.

      • sablegsd

        My late GSD in her prime could run 5 miles.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        They’ve got more endurance than wolves.

  • So CAL Snowman

    The “afleets” probably thought another rival gang was trying to “steal they pool”

  • The__Bobster

    FSU has been known for its monkeyshines for decades. The recruiters there don’t seem to care much about moral character. Winning is the only thing that counts.

    BTW, you’ve got to love doggies. They can go after feral groids without fear of being sued.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Dogs really are man’s best friend!

      • tjs3023

        Mans’ best friend captures mankinds’ worst enemy.

        • sablegsd

          I’m torn, is it blacks or muslims? blacks can be muslims (which proves how stupid they are) muslims hate blacks agghh I’m so confused.

    • jane johnson

      Remember Free Shoes U? You can’t make this stuff up.

    • bubo

      As a graduate of FSU, yes monkeyshines has been prevalent. The close proximity to Florida A&M also contributes to the buffoonery. Of course, every school with a big time athletics program deals with the same stuff with the exception of maybe Stanford. Nothing makes me chuckle more than the whole, our ath-a-leets are pure as the driven snow, unlike those thugs at our rival.

      We did have Glayde Whitney, the “racist” geneticist, on the faculty at FSU though, so that’s a plus.

    • Luis

      Starting with Bobby Bowden. I’ve never been impressed with him.

  • Scott

    Everyone knows that swimming pools are racist. It’s only right that he should fire shots at it.

  • IstvanIN

    Blacks, guns and athletics, a common thread in so many stories about our favorite racial group.

    • Melanie

      I so wish that whites would stop supporting the thug felon “afleets” by watching feetsball and bakkaball, buying tickets to the games, buying the tie-in merchandise, etc. Can a bunch of stupid black felons be that important, that whites can’t make the small sacrifice of giving it up? Let the owners make their money off their groid fans.

  • PesachPatriot

    Yet another respect inspiring story about aspiring affleetes from flori-duh…I’m sure this little incident of gun violence will be all over the media…oh it wasn’t angry white guys with assault rifles and 30 round magazines? Move along folks, nothing to see here these boys will be turning their lives around shortly.

    • RisingReich

      I’m sure we will hear from ‘Mom’ that they are ‘angles’. Yes – I misspelled that on purpose.

      • PesachPatriot

        Most angles I have known were very well versed in proper firearms safety techniques and would probably be asleep at 3:30 am because they have work the next day.

    • Morris LeChat

      I was just watching some youtube vids about Tom Brady. I am working on a cartoon of him and I need better reference than still pictures. One characteristic of his that one has to capture is his prominent forehead. It protrudes slight more than usual and seems to go up straighter than most people’s, rather like Randy Travis’s. One thing they were saying about him was that “physically” he did not seem like a good pick. He was too thin, didn’t throw as fast as most others etc. But, unlike the brawnier africans, who also are known for their smaller brains, especially in the frontal region, he brought an undefinable something that makes him superior. Hmmm, could it be BRAINS, and isn’t it interesting that the africans, with the smaller brains, lower IQs, no ability to strategize, no ability to think ahead,isn’t it funny that this type of “affff-lete” is almost always robbing, raping, and gang banging. Oh, they are not always CAUGHT, but they always DO behave this way.

      • PesachPatriot

        I’m not really a big sports fan but my wife is and obviously athletes of all colors in america manage to get themselves in trouble…when white or hispanic athletes get in trouble its usually for relatively normal stuff like DUI, drugs, stripper/cheating scandals or gambling/game fixing….when black athletes get in trouble its for things like michael vick’s dog fighting ring, the one guy on the kansas city chiefs who killed his wife and then committed suicide on the field, or things like mike tyson biting off an opponent’s ear.

    • Melanie

      No wonder negroes fail as a race, it appears that all of the “aspiring” ones get killed or sent to NU just when they were “turning their lives around”. How coincidental.

  • Morris LeChat

    It’s just not a negro pool party without gunfire! Just like it’s just not a negro Fy-oo-nerahh without gunfire, just like it’s just not a negro neighborhood without gunfire, just like it’s just not a chucker-Cheeses without gunfire in the parking lot, just like its…. oh hell, I could go on all day

    • StillModerated

      You neglected to mention weddings, baby showers, and the last drumstick.

      • Morris LeChat

        d’ohhhhh, WEDDINGS! of COURSE, that one is a frequent one, baby showers too huh, so they have baby showers? Seems to me when they don’t even know who the father is….

        • IstvanIN

          Baby showers don’t require a daddy, just a pregnant female and a bunch of aunts, cousins and friends from the club.

          • sablegsd

            An a whole mess a ebt cards.

      • Dr. X

        This is a serious problem. Guns, more than almost anything else, demonstrate the fundamental inability of Negroes to live in a free society and refrain from reckless an irresponsible behavior. I just read an article in the Washington Post — a very left-wing and racially-correct paper, mind you — about how school schootings committed by whites are actually a very, very tiny fraction of gun crimes and the vast majority of gun crimes are committed by blacks. The article then cited the FBI statistics that blacks are five times more likely to shoot someone than whites are. (Needless to say, I was shocked that they actually printed the truth.) But the greater problem here is that we are now in the midst of a nationwide effort to disarm whites and strip whites of their constitutional freedoms because nearly all politicians are unwilling to recognize the fact that the vast majority of gun crimes are a black phenomenon but that tens of millions of whites own firearms responsibly. It’s a regression to the lowest common denominator of stupidity –if the dumbest and most reckless black cannot handle firearms, then the smartest and most disciplined white must not have them, either. This is how we lose our country — sacrificed on the altar of racial equality.

      any dog can do better.

  • bigone4u

    Ironic that an Olympic class runner could not outrun a K-9 officer. I love police dogs so much because they’re dogs and because of the scare factor they put into criminals. Last summer two local K-9 officers died when local Hispanic sheriff’s deputies forgot they left them in their police car in 100 plus degree heat. Who the hell leaves police dogs to die in a locked car? Something suspicious there. But typical Hispanic behavior toward dogs, which is one of cruelty.

    • Melanie

      Were the “human” officers punished at all? What a horrible thing to do to any dog, but especially dogs which humans took to train to help them do human jobs. That’s just another reason I despise the “diversity”-if they’ll commit the atrocities which they commit on humans, even infants, they won’t think twice about abusing an animal, and they generally don’t think twice about it. They’re savage, they love cruelty, and the more helpless or innocent the victim, the better. I have rescued-“dognapped”-dogs from groids who were mistreating it (to top it off, it was a beautiful white dog-I don’t doubt that in their twisted minds, they were wreaking some “vengeance” on whites by abusing a white dog). I still have her-she’s one of the best dogs I’ve ever had-smart, calm, and patient, but will transform into a snarling demon dog if she thinks I’m being threatened-and she hates groids. I’ve actually never had a dog that didn’t hate groids, and I never taught any of them to do so.

      I’ve also called the animal control on some mexicans who were neglecting a puppy which they kept chained up, with no water or food, in the Texas heat, when I was visiting family there. I would have dognapped that one, except that my family had to live there. My family did keep me updated, and said that since the animal control visit, the mexicans were making sure to feed and water the poor thing, and made it a dog house. I bought a kiddy pool before I left, sneaked into their yard, filled it with water, and showed the poor puppy how to get in to cool off (and get a drink if no other water was available). The mexicans didn’t seem to mind, it just didn’t seem to occur to them that a dog kept in the Texas heat needed quantities of water, not to mention being fed once in a while!

    Hopefully the dog that “got him” didn’t catch anything. I personally can’t believe, much less understand the mentality of our liberals, with respect to Black crime. Despite the reality Blacks are many, many times more likely to rape, rob, assault, steal, shoplift and be involved in drug related crimes. It’s almost like the liberals’ brain tissue is situated near the base of the alimentary canal. What else could explain the liberal psyche?
