BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland's governor says all 3,000 National Guardsmen and 1,000 additional police officers who'd been sent in to Baltimore after last week's riots have now been pulled out of the city. Gov. Larry Hogan today lifted the state of emergency. The move came on the same day that Baltimore's mayor asked federal investigators to look at the practices of the city's police department -- and whether police discriminate, or use excessive force. The governor says that request is "probably a step in the right direction."
NEW YORK (AP) — An NFL investigation has found that New England Patriots employees likely deflated footballs and that quarterback Tom Brady was "at least generally aware" of the rules violations. The NFL began the investigation after the Patriots won the AFC Championship game in January, when the Indianapolis Colts complained that several footballs were under inflated. The report released today said league investigators found no evidence that coach Bill Belichick and team management knew of the practice.

WASHINGTON (AP) — As Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders gets his presidential campaign into gear, he's hiring people who worked in the highly-regarded digital operations from President Barack Obama's campaigns.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who was arrested inside the home of actress Sandra Bullock has entered a not-guilty plea to charges that he stalked her. Joshua Corbett entered the plea today in Los Angeles, at his first court appearance since a judge determined last month that he should stand trial. He was arrested inside Bullock's home in June of last year. The actress hid in her closet and directed police through her home in a 15-minute 9-1-1 call. Authorities found a collection of illegal weapons at Corbett's home, but he wasn't armed when he was arrested.
