Bad Call

Geez. Where's Serena Williams when an elderly man needs protection from an overzealous lineswoman?

The L.A. Times reports:
A high-ranking umpire on the U.S. professional tennis circuit arrested Tuesday in New York allegedly bludgeoned her 82-year-old husband to death with a coffee mug in Woodland Hills and then tried to make it look like he fell down the stairs, authorities said. Lois Goodman, 70, was arrested at her New York hotel and charged with murder by the L.A. County district attorney's office. She was in New York to officiate at U.S. Open tennis matches. Goodman, a well-known tennis official who has received dirty looks from John McEnroe, apologies from Andre Agassi and kindness from Pete Sampras, initially told police her husband, Alan Frederick Goodman, took a deadly tumble April 17 down the stairs of their Woodland Hills home. She reported it at 7 that evening.
I have such ambivalent feelings about this crime. It's obviously horrifying news for the victim's loved ones, yet is music to the ears of producers of the Oxygen show "Snapped."
