The junior high of the Mommy Group

'I can't go for lunch,' I tell my friend, 'I have Group today.'

Saying this makes me feel terribly louche, like I'm tousled and troubled and court-mandated. But the truth is, I don't trudge to church basements to talk to fellow sufferers about addictions, or anger management, or how I'm going to recreate myself after a lifetime of crime. The group I clock in for is full of much, much more dangerous sorts.

Mark Mangino is a still a fat guy with anger-management issues

Former University of Kansas football coach Mark Mangino is talking for the first time since he was forced out of the job 17 months ago. In an interview with his hometown paper, the New Castle (Pennsylvania) News , Mangino refuses to his acknowledge that his inability to control his emotions may have played a role in his firing.

Mangino, for instance, blames the media for his becoming a YouTube sensation in 2007. During a game against Central Michigan, the coach tore into a player ("Look at what the fuck you did!") who drew a celebration penalty. Mangino said the TV reporter who captured the tirade "broke an unwritten rule" by recording and releasing the audio. "That should never even have been an issue," Mangino says.

'BK Brawler' banned from Burger Kings, ordered to anger management

An Alabama woman was banned from all Burger King outlets after pleading no contest Tuesday to criminal charges stemming from an incident at a Panama City Beach restaurant.

Nekiva Hardy, 30, the so-called "BK Brawler" whose Spring Break tirade was captured on cellphone video and uploaded to YouTube, pleaded to two felony charges of giving a false name to law enforcement and criminal mischief of more than $1,000, plus misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and resisting officers without violence, according to a State Attorney's Office news release.

Hardy was sentenced to 45 days in jail, five years probation, 100 hours of community service work, $3,800 in restitution, $1,077 in fines and court costs, $20 a month for the cost of supervision, and she must complete an anger management course. The Montgomery woman has been held in jail for 41 days, which was credited to her sentence, so she should be released by the weekend, the release stated.

IN RE ANTHONY P., Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of New York

The determination that the agency exercised diligent efforts to support reunification of respondent and her child was supported by clear and convincing evidence that the agency provided respondent with a service plan and referrals tailored to her needs, and required her to complete anger management training, parenting skills training, and therapy, among other things. The agency diligently sought to "encourage a meaningful relationship between the parent and child" by scheduling regular supervised visitation, to no avail.

Clear and convincing evidence supports the determination that respondent permanently neglected the child. Notwithstanding her progress during the relevant statutory period, respondent was convicted of attempted murder and arrested for assaulting the child's father after attending two anger management programs. Respondent was also arrested for prostitution. This indicates that she has not sufficiently addressed the initial problems, i.e., the criminal and violent tendencies, "that led to [the child's] foster care placement in the first place"

Detective fatal beating of Hilmar man was self-defense?

New details emerged Tuesday at a preliminary hearing about the traffic incident that allegedly sparked a case of road rage that resulted in the death of a Hilmar man, as well as the defendant's history of anger management.

Michael Hoyt of Turlock is charged with the murder of Kenneth Winter. The Stanislaus County District Attorney's Office has accused Hoyt of beating Winter so severely during an altercation that it caused fatal injuries to the 67-year-old man.

A MAN traumatised by time served in an Iranian prison has been given a suspended sentence after bashing his wife's head with a lump of wood during a "meltdown".

But Ravanbakhsh Kakavand, 46, could go to jail for four years if he doesn't deal with his anger management problem and breaches conditions including counselling and taking medication.

Kakavand was sentenced in the Supreme Court of South Australia today after Justice Patricia Kelly found him guilty of the roadside attack which ended when a passer-by wrestled him to the ground.

"But for the intervention of a passer-by, you may be facing a charge of murder," Justice Kelly said today.

"Let me repeat, you have an anger management problem," Justice Kelly told Kakavand.

This lack of control put the couple and others around them at risk, she said.

Mother attacked head teacher and two other women at primary school

A mother who attacked a head teacher, school worker and a parent at a primary school has been ordered to attend anger management classes.

Karen Matthew assaulted the three women and caused hundreds of pounds worth of damage when she lashed out at Lumsden Primary School in Aberdeenshire earlier this year.

A sheriff branded the 36-year-old's behaviour "totally unacceptable" and sentenced her to a community payback order spanning two years.

Staff member Fiona Coutts was knocked to the ground when she was punched on the head by Matthew during the attack.

She then hit the worker on the body, during the incident on February 7. Matthew repeatedly pushed head teacher Margaret Thomson and raised her fist in a threatening manner towards parent Moira Falconer.

Woods was suspended indefinitely from the Demon Deacons' basketball team and was eventually granted a release last October.

Slade Heathcott Attacks Catcher

If you followed the 2009 draft at all, you may remember that part of the reason Texas high school outfielder Slade Heathcott lasted until the 29th overall pick, despite excellent tools, was due to concerns about his makeup, unsettled life, and volatile personality.

It seems he still has some work to do on anger management.
Playing for Charleston in the Sally League last night, he got hit by a pitch last night in a game against Greenville and reacted by attacking the catcher.
