ESPN.com reports former NFL RB Maurice Clarett has ties to an alleged member of an Israeli crime organization, according to ESPN. Clarett got involved in the organization shortly after leaving Ohio State and Clarett's attorney said Clarett may have been in possession of firearms during his arrest last week to protect himself against mob activity. Nick Mango, Clarett's attorney, said his client has repeatedly received death threats over the past year but that the cryptic postcard sent last week has him wondering about Clarett's ties to an alleged mob enforcer. A rapper friend of Clarett's introduced the running back to Hai Waknine in Los Angeles. Waknine is a convicted felon who prosecutors believe is a part of the Israeli crime organization, The Jerusalem Group. Waknine became Clarett's sponsor and set him up with cash, a BMW, bodyguards, drivers and beachfront lodging in Malibu with the understanding that he would be reimbursed with 60 percent of Clarett's rookie contract. When Clarett was cut by the Denver Broncos, Waknine cut off Clarett financially. After Clarett's latest arrest, an anonymous phone call alerted Clarett's attorneys to his ties with Waknine and they grew more suspicious when the threatening postcard arrived, which may have come from Waknine.

The Associated Press reports former NFL RB Maurice Clarett was ordered Friday, Aug. 11, to have a mental health evaluation after a highway chase and violent struggle with police who caught him with four loaded guns. Judge David Fais delayed the trial set to begin Monday, Aug. 14, on previous charges accusing the player of holding up two people outside a bar on New Year's Day. "I clearly understand everything, and I don't know why we have to drag this thing out," said Clarett, who scoffed, smiled and rolled his head back when Fais ordered the evaluation. Clarett, who wrote a few notes to his attorneys with his hands cuffed, said he was ready to go to trial. Fais also revoked Clarett's $1.1 million bond on the charges, meaning Clarett figures to remain in jail until the new trial starts Sept. 18.

The Associated Press reports a judge has set bail for former NFL RB Maurice Clarett at $5 million. Following his bizarre and violent encounter with police the day before, prosecutors had asked a judge to hold Clarett on at least $1 million bond. "We feel he's a threat to the community," assistant prosecutor Chris Brown said. His lawyer, Nick Mango, called the $5 million bond excessive, adding that his client would not likely be able to post it. Prosecutors initially asked the judge to hold Clarett without bond, in part because he had been driving just a few blocks from the home of a woman scheduled to testify against him in his robbery trial, which starts Monday, Aug. 14. Police said more charges are possible, and federal agents said they are eyeing whether Clarett violated federal gun laws that prohibit having a firearm while under indictment.
