Citizen Staff Reports 08/23/11
University of Richmond head football coach Latrell Scott has resigned today, after being charged with driving while intoxicated earlier today in Henrico County and refusing a breathalyzer and blood test.
Scott, a Midlothian resident, faces a hearing Sept. 27 at 11 a.m. in Henrico County General District Court. The DWI charge is Scott's second in a 5-10 year period, according to the Virginia Courts Case Information website.
"Earlier today, Coach Scott announced his resignation as Head Football Coach at the University of Richmond," UR Athletic Director Jim Miller wrote in a memo to athletic department staff members, announcing the move. "I would like to thank Latrell for his years of service at the University of Richmond and wish him the best as he pursues other endeavors."
The Spiders went 6-5 last year in Scott's only year as head coach. The team opens its 2011 season at Duke Sept. 3.
"Although the timing and circumstances of his resignation are unfortunate, I am optimistic that our football coaching staff and student-athletes will have a successful year," Miller said in the memo. "Wayne Lineburg has been named Interim Head Football Coach. I know you will support Wayne and our assistant coaches as they lead the football student-athletes through this transitional period."
‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’ fails to capitalize on tasty concept
The family’s sole mode of transportation sputters and dies in a sleepy little French town, but the town’s food culture is high, and that’s a perfect place for a family of restaurateurs to settle down. There’s only one problem – the family’s rustic “Maison Mumbai” is right across the street (a hundred feet away, if the title didn’t clue you in) from a prestigious French bistro with a Michelin star, run with an iron fist by the dreaded Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren, pictured).

Short Pump brewery offers more than just beer
The restaurant and craft brewery opened in early June and features 10 beers made by female brewmaster Becky Hammond (pictured). This is the restaurant’s second location in Virginia; the first is in Arlington. Behind glass walls, customers watched the beer brewing in massive steel barrels. For our up-and-coming beer region, it makes sense that Short Pump would jump on board.
As I walked up to the back of the mall near the comedy club, I was taken aback by what I saw: at the top of the stairs was an overflowing restaurant with outdoor seating, large umbrellas and dangling outdoor lights. > Read more.
