The charges against, Winslow, 34, include two counts of forcible rape, one count of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible oral copulation, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Other charges include kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, residential burglary and indecent exposure, the sheriff’s department said.

He played in the NFL until 2013, playing tight end for Cleveland, Tampa Bay, New England and the New York Jets.

The man was found with a gunshot wound around 11:15 p.m. Sunday when officers responded to a call. The home belongs to Eddie Drummond, according to Fulton County tax records.

Drummond was a wide receiver who played several seasons for the Detroit Lions, ending his career after the 2007 season with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He is known for hosting lavish celebrity pool parties at an undisclosed location described in previous event listings as the NFL Mansion.

Drummond recently promoted his April 28 birthday party at the mansion, for which tickets were as high as $260.

The man who was shot was taken to an area hospital for treatment. His condition was unknown Monday morning. 

“No further information in reference to this incident will be released at this time,” South Fulton police Detective Partrena Smith said.

Rafael Nadal continued his dominance at the French Open, winning the men’s singles title for the 11th time Sunday, ESPN reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Nadal defeated Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 to capture his 17th Grand Slam title, second only among men to the 20 won by Roger Federer.

Nadal overcame a problem with his left middle finger during the third set to defeat the No. 7 seed from Austria. The Spaniard was leading 2-1 when he stopped serving because he could not straighten his finger, ESPN reported. After receiving a salt pill and an arm massage by his trainer, Nadal resumed play and closed out the match.

Nadal’s 11 French Open men’s titles are a record at Roland Garros. He won his first title in 2005, and all of his championships have occurred during the Open era. He owns an 86-2 record at the French Open.

Max Decugis won eight French titles between 1903 and 1914; in the Open era, Bjorn Borg won six men’s crowns between 1974 and 1981.

Nadal matched the all-time record of most singles titles won at the same Grand Slam event, set by Margaret Court at the Australian Open in the 1960s and ’70s, Reuters reported.

Former Brazilian tennis great Maria Bueno dead at 78

Maria Bueno, a Brazilian who won three Wimbledon women’s singles titles and four U.S. Open crowns during the 1950s and ’60s and was also known for her controversial tennis attire, died Friday, the BBC reported. She was 78.

Bueno was admitted to a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Tuesday, The Telegraph reported. The hospital released a statement confirming her death, the newspaper reported.

Bueno, nicknamed the “Tennis Ballerina” for her grace and style during tennis’ pre-Open era, won 19 Grand Slam titles. In addition to her seven singles titles, she won 11 doubles championships and one mixed doubles title. She also reached the finals at the French Open and Australian Open.

Bueno also was the world’s top-ranked women’s player in 1959, 1960, 1964 and 1966. From 1957 to 1967 she won 65 singles tournaments, 90 doubles crowns and 15 mixed doubles titles. She was a runner-up in 45 events. Bueno was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1978. 

In 1964, Bueno caused a stir at Wimbledon when she wore a white dress designed by Ted Tinling that had a pink underskirt and matching pink underwear.

"There was a gasp from one end of the court," Bueno said years later. "And the people the other end didn't know why, until I changed ends and served from there.

"Later I wore panties that resembled the club colors, which outraged the club committee and they brought in the all-white clothing rule."

Would LeBron James leave the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Update June 9, 12:30 AM EST: Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James took a seat with about 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter Friday night, indicating he would not finish Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

Golden State won its third NBA title in four years with a 108-85 victory. 

James scored 23 points in a losing effort. The Cleveland crowd could be heard shouting “MVP” in the background as James went to the bench.

The odds that the Akron, Ohio, native will stay with Cleveland are tough.

The Cavaliers trail the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals 3-0, a lead that has never been overcome in the NBA.

During this season’s playoffs, James accounted for nearly a third of his team’s box-score statistics: points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocked shots. 

No player has contributed a higher share of his team’s playoff output.

The Akron native has a strong family base and runs a nonprofit organization called The LeBron James Family Foundation, which helps needy children in his hometown area.

Those ties may be enough to resist the opportunity to switch teams, but James’ numbers show he may be ready to move on.

He has been named the NBA's Most Valuable Player four times (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013) and has been to the NBA All-Star Game every year since 2005.

Nicknamed “King James,” James has been named the NBA Finals MVP three times, in 2012, 2013 and 2016.

He is the youngest player in NBA history to reach 30,000 career points.

As of June 2017 LeBron James’ net worth is $86 million, according to Forbes magazine.
