Randy and Jason Sklar are here with news from the world of sports. Former Dodger Manny Ramirez has been released on bail in Florida following domestic abuse charges. Meanwhile former Olympian gymnast Paul Hamm was also arrested for assault. Eight drinks deep, he's accused of attacking a taxi driver and refusing to pay a $23 fare. Later, the hat flap. Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig didn't allow the Mets to wear commemorative 9/11 hats during gameplay. Now he's mad that the disagreement went public.
