TORONTO -- Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg caught up with his buddy Tie Domi in Toronto on Tuesday and tempted the retired NHL enforcer with a friendly bout in the boxing ring.
"Hey, Tie Domi, I'm officially challenging you," Wahlberg told Domi when the tough-guy hockey player called him on his cellphone during an interview. "Because there's no hockey, I'm officially challenging you to a fight at the Air Canada Centre. Are you in or not?... Don't duck me."
Wahlberg, in Toronto to talk about his upcoming film Broken City and do a youth charity event, then gave Domi the number of the downtown hotel room he was in with his entourage.
Domi showed up at the hotel room, giving Wahlberg a hug before exchanging mock fisticuffs. He told reporters the feisty Hollywood star often poses such challenges to him.
Belcher at home of 'girlfriend'
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Police say Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher spent some of his final hours sleeping in his car outside the home of another woman whom he described as his "girlfriend."
Police spokesman Darin Snapp said Tuesday the woman's apartment complex was about 16 kilometres from the home where Belcher shot and killed the mother of his three-month-old daughter, 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins. Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and killed himself in front of team officials.
Snapp said officers found Belcher sleeping in his car around 2:50 a.m. Saturday. He says Belcher made a phone call and a woman let him into the building a few minutes later.
