Jimmy Connors Arrested

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - Tennis star Jimmy Connors was arrested outside the campus arena where UC Santa Barbara and North Carolina were playing a men's basketball game.

Campus police say in a statement the eight-time Grand Slam champion was taken into custody Friday night after refusing to comply with an order to leave an area near the entrance of the Thunderdome following a confrontation.

A police dispatcher says Connors was arrested at the beginning of the game. No other details of the arrest were made available.

Connors was ranked No. 1 for five consecutive years in the 1970s, and had a fiery temperament on the court. Earlier this year, he resigned as Andy Roddick's coach after working together for nearly two years.

Re: Jimmy Connors Arrested

He wasn't arrested really. He was just escorted to the police station with hand cuffs. That's all.

Re: Jimmy Connors Arrested

The media likes to lie. He was not arrested. He was escorted from the building. No charges were filed, more mugtard BS.

In my country, being escorted out of somewhere to the police station with hand cuffs = being arrested. Might be different in California though...

What a tool btw.

Re: Jimmy Connors Arrested

Connors is a 8-time grand slam champ. Show him the proper respect!
