Police: Turner involved in domestic dispute


ATLANTA — Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner was involved in a "domestic dispute" Monday night with the mother of his infant child, Gwinnett County Police Corp. David Schiralli said.

Schiralli said police responded to a call between 7 and 8 p.m. Monday, but he would not identify the woman or the site of the incident.

Police made no arrests and do not plan to file charges.

"There is not enough probable cause for us to proceed any further," Schiralli said.

Turner finished second in the NFL with 1,699 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns to earn his first Pro Bowl invitation. The 26-year-old signed a $34.5 million contract with the Falcons after leaving San Diego as an unrestricted free agent in March.

Atlanta (11-5) will play at Arizona (9-7) Saturday in an NFC wild-card game.


Tech’s Johnson, Walker
headed to Senior Bowl


ATLANTA — Two members of Georgia Tech’s defensive line have another game waiting after Wednesday night’s Chick-fil-A Bowl against LSU.

Two seniors — defensive end Michael Johnson and defensive tackle Vance Walker — have accepted invitations to play in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 24.

Johnson comes to Hinesville each year for the Cedric Dickerson football camp held at the Liberty County Recreation Department. Dickerson and Johnson are cousins.

The Senior Bowl attracts top college seniors and NFL general managers, scouts and coaches.

This is the sixth straight year Georgia Tech will have players in the game.

Five Georgia Tech players participated in last year’s event: Durant Brooks, Tashard Choice, Hinesville native Gary Guyton, Darrell Robertson and Philip Wheeler.
