Witness details multiple prescriptions for Smith

AP | LINDA DEUTSCH | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

LOS ANGELES — A witness has testified that Anna Nicole Smith's psychiatrist was prescribing excessive medication at a time when other doctors were giving the former Playboy model opiates and other drugs.

Dr. Timothy Botello, an expert in psychiatry, testified Monday at a preliminary hearing for three defendants accused of illegally giving Smith drugs.

Botello documented prescriptions written from 2003 to 2007, when Smith died of an accidental drug overdose at a Florida hotel.

He focused on one month in 2004 when Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Smith's psychiatrist, and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor were giving her medications from various pharmacies.

Eroshevich, Kapoor and Smith's former boyfriend-lawyer Howard K. Stern are charged with conspiring to illegally provide Smith with controlled substances. All have pleaded not guilty.

Angels' Lackey to start ALCS Game 1

AP | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

ANAHEIM, Calif. — John Lackey will start Friday night's Game 1 of the AL championship series against CC Sabathia and the Yankees, getting the nod from manager Mike Scioscia before the Angels traveled to New York on Wednesday.

Lackey pitched 7 1-3 innings to lead Los Angeles to a 5-0 win over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the division series. The right-hander is 3-3 with a 3.02 ERA in 12 career postseason games, 10 starts.

"It's a fun atmosphere, for sure," Lackey said. "It's the same as the last round. It helps to win the first game, but the importance is probably a little bit less in a seven-game series, especially being on the road. It'll be a challenge the whole series. They're a great team."

Lackey was 11-8 with a 3.83 ERA after missing the first 33 games because of a forearm strain. He got Los Angeles off to a great start in the first round of the playoffs, allowing just four singles against Boston.

"When John is on that mound, he competes as well as anybody I've seen," Scioscia said of the eight-year veteran, who won Game 7 of the 2002 World Series as a rookie.

Warriors' Jackson relinquishes captain title

AP | JANIE McCAULEY | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

OAKLAND, Calif. — "Captain Jack" is no longer.

Disgruntled Golden State swingman Stephen Jackson asked to relinquish his captain title during a meeting Tuesday with Warriors coach Don Nelson and general manager Larry Riley.

Nelson accepted on the heels of Jackson's two-game suspension for an outburst at the coach early in Friday's preseason game against the Lakers in Los Angeles.

Jackson, who has asked to be traded, acknowledged he didn't think Nelson and the coaching staff were supporting him with the referees in a physical matchup with Kobe Bryant.

Jackson, the Warriors' leading scorer last season, picked up five fouls and a technical in less than 10 minutes and was sent to the locker room by Nelson following a testy exchange.

Michael Jackson earns American Music Awards nod

AP | DAVID BAUDER | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

NEW YORK — Michael Jackson has a chance to win artist of the year posthumously at the American Music Awards.

The pop superstar, who died on June 25, was among a diverse group of artists nominated Tuesday for the top honor. Country star Taylor Swift, rapper Eminem, breakthrough rockers Kings of Leon and flamboyant pop star Lady Gaga were the other nominees.

Swift topped all artists with six nominations. She drew inadvertent attention at the MTV Video Music Awards last month when rapper Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech to say Beyonce deserved the award instead.

Jackson followed Swift with five nominations and Eminem received four.

Winners are determined by an online vote of fans and will be announced at a Los Angeles ceremony televised by ABC on Nov. 22. The nominees were selected through a measurement combining sales and radio airplay.
