FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailChris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) — A New Orleans security officer who filed a complaint against Cleveland Brown’s wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for allegedly slapping him on the buttocks has decided not to pursue the charges.The officer, who works at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, was seen in a viral video with Beckham, who appears to slap him on his behind in a stadium locker room Monday night.The officer filed a complaint with the New Orleans Police Department on Thursday and an arrest warrant was obtained for a “simple battery” charge.At some point, the officer had a change of heart, telling police on Saturday he didn’t want to pursue the charges, a law enforcement source confirmed to ABC News. Officials then rescinded the arrest warrant.“Absent a complaining witness, this is not a case our office intends to pursue,” said Ken Daley, a spokesman for Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro.The allegations stemmed from the aftermath of the College Football Playoff National Championship in which Beckham’s alma mater, Louisiana State, was celebrating after defeating Clemson 42-25.Beckham was seen in a video apparently slapping the officer’s behind, at which point he turned around and looked at Beckham, who continued joking around with LSU players and officials.The “simple battery” charge would have been a misdemeanor.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns, left, drives against Orlando Magic’s Nikola Vucevic, of Montenegro, in the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Jan. 4, 2019, in Minneapolis. (AP Photo/Jim Mone)MINNEAPOLIS — Through 17 minutes, the Minnesota Timberwolves watched the Orlando Magic shoot 76.4 percent and open a 19-point lead. Returning home after a trip was looking like another letdown for Minnesota.Then the Timberwolves started playing team defense.ADVERTISEMENT Karl-Anthony Towns had 29 points and 15 rebounds, and Jeff Teague added 23 points and 10 assists in his return to the Minnesota lineup in the Timberwolves’ 120-103 comeback victory Friday night.Taj Gibson added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota.

We got some stops. I thought (Anthony Tolliver) gave us a big lift. He hit a couple big 3s and that gave us the energy, gave us a lift, and the defense, I thought, in the second half was very good.”Nikola Vucevic had 22 points for Orlando, but just eight after the first quarter. The Magic, who had won three of four, hit 26 of their first 34 shots (76.4 percent) before fading. Terrence Ross scored 13 points off the bench for Orlando, but he missed his final four 3-pointers after starting 3 of 5 from beyond the arc during the Magic’s hot start. Evan Fournier added 21 points.“This game was ours to take, to be honest,” Fournier said. “It was really ours. When you’re up 20 on the road, you should be winning those games.”Minnesota found a way to slow Orlando in the second and continued the momentum into the second half. The Magic missed 12 of their final 14 shots of the first half and were 7 of 23 in the third quarter.Teague and Towns took over offensively in the second half. Teague had nine points and four assists in the third, and Towns had 21 points in the second half after first-half foul trouble.“It was just lazy, undisciplined and soft,” Orlando forward Aaron Gordon said. “We didn’t have it tonight on the defensive end. It’s not OK at this point in the season.”ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completion MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments LATEST STORIES Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue Victor Oladipo hits late 3, Pacers beat Bulls in OT Is Luis Manzano planning to propose to Jessy Mendiola?

Friday matched their best comeback of the season and five of their six wins when trailing at the half have come at home.“We came in here, at halftime, we said, ‘hey, we’ve got to change the game,’” Towns said. “We did that.

Even before the latest price cut, the Xiaomi Mi A2 was very well one of the best phones to buy under Rs 20,000. Now after the price cut, the second Android One phone from Xiaomi is no doubt the best phone available under Rs 15,000. Why? Because it offers stock Android experience, now runs on Android 9 Pie, shoots almost flawless pictures from both main and selfie camera, and is one hell of a phone. And now it is one hell of a phone under Rs 13,999.Last week Xiaomi India announced that the company has five surprises to reveal this week and the first one turned out to be a price cut of up to Rs 3,000 for the Mi A2. The India price of Xiaomi Mi A2 now starts at Rs 13,999. This is for the base model of the phone which comes packed with 4GB RAM plus 64GB storage. The top end model of the Mi A2 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage now retails at Rs 15,999.This price segment is crowded with some very good phones from Nokia, Asus, Realme and Honor. Soon you may also get Samsung M10 and Samsung M20 here. But I believe that right now if you are looking for a phone under Rs 15,000, get the Mi A2 at Rs 13,999 as it makes more sense than ever before.To begin with, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is arguably the phone with best camera at this price point. In this segment, most phones often struggle to click detailed pictures with spot-on colours and good dynamic range, but that definitely isn’t the case with the Mi A2. Both the cameras back and selfie camera of the Mi A2 are really good.advertisementIn our Xiaomi Mi A2 review we mentioned:”While the Mi A2’s main USP is arguably its Android One software, that isn’t its most killer feature.Not only does the Mi A2 offer a complete package with respect to paper specs, it’s the closest that you can get as far as realizing them in actual usage is concerned. In fact, it’s safe to say that the Mi A2 offers the best dual camera implementation on a mid-level budget phone right now.”The Xiaomi Mi A2 comes with two cameras on the back. Of these, one uses a 12-megapixel sensor (Sony IMX 486 sensor) and another a 20-megapixel sensor (Sony IMX 376 sensor). Both the sensors have an f/1.75 aperture lens. On the front, the Mi A2 sports a 20-megapixel camera with LED flash.At the same time, the Mi A2 has a lot more to it than the killer cameras. It has stock Android interface, which is always nice to get in a phone. It is durable and feels sturdy in the hands. The best bit is that Xiaomi has finally – although after a long wait – upgraded the Mi A2 to Google latest Android 9 Pie update. It also makes the Mi A2 one of the cheapest phones running on Pie.The Mi A2 is also a great performer. It is powered by a 2.2Ghz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor which is notably one of the most powerful mid-range processors you can get in a phone right now. The Mi A2 is pretty good at handling the day to day tasks with ease and no sign of lags.Talking about the performance in our Xiaomi Mi A2 review we mentioned:”Performance-wise the Mi A2 is still at par with the best in business which isn’t surprising considering the hardware (and stock Android software) that is inside the phone. The Xiaomi Mi A2 is, in fact, one of the most powerful phones that you can buy at its price point.”Notably, Xiaomi has reduced the price of the Mi A2 for the second time in India in the last two months, which more or less hints at the coming of the Mi A3. Rumours about the Mi A3 have already started flooding the internet and we expect that the phone could go official as early as the first half of 2019. But that is still no reason not to pick the Xiaomi Mi A2 if you are looking to get a phone under Rs 15,000.ALSO READ | After Mi A2, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro now gets massive price cut in IndiaALSO READ | Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 with waterdrop notch, dual rear cameras leaked in official looking posterALSO READ | Xiaomi Mi A2 India price permanently reduced by upto Rs 3,000, new price effective from today

New Delhi: The Congress Saturday alleged mismanagement of the economy by the government and that it has suffered due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “reckless” decisions.Senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma said that in the past five years, India’s economy is “gasping” instead of “galloping”. “The government is destroying the credibility of Indian data by embellishing the data, fudging numbers and inflating figures. The fact is that there has been an monumental mismanagement of Indian economy under his watch. It is not galloping economy but a gasping economy, a struggling economy which has also suffered because of the reckless decision of Prime Minister Modi,” he told reporters. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’The Congress leader claimed that Modi has to be held accountable for destroying tens of millions of jobs by demonetisation. “He has to answer for a hasty imposition of a flawed GST model which he claimed to be ‘one nation, one tax’, but it is one nation, five taxes which excludes 45 per cent of the revenue, making Indian GST the most burdensome most complex,” he said. Sharma said the four engines of the Indian economy — investment, manufacturing, exports and capital formation — were down. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K”How can you keep on claiming that we are the fastest growing (economy) by not creating jobs but by destroying them. There is a huge contradiction. This economy is not creating jobs. Exports have stagnated for five years, manufacturing has gone down, gross fixed capital formation has remained hovering over zero. National investment rate has fallen. These are the facts. The government has gone into heavy borrowing,” he told reporters. Sharma also alleged that the country has played with the credibility of the country’s data. “Fudging of the data is not going to help. NITI Aayog’s job is not meant to embellish numbers and fudge the country’s data. The prime minister and his government has played with the credibility of the country’s data. They have dented the credibility,” he said. “The time has come to punish the PM and his govt for destroying the credibility of Indian data, embellish the data, fudging numbers and inflating figures. The fiscal deficit has reached an alarming point. These are the questions to the prime minister,” he said. He said if the Congress comes to power after the April-May parliamentary election, it would scrap the NITI Aayog and bring back the Planning Commission.
