Jonathan Dwyer of the Arizona Cardinals was arrested on domestic violence charges Wednesday, the latest in a string of NFL public relations nightmares.

Not even 24 hours before Dwyer’s arrest, the Minnesota Vikings banned Adrian Peterson, a star running back facing child abuse charges, indefinitely.

The Carolina Panthers recently did the same with Greg Hardy, a defensive end who is currently appealing a domestic violence case of his own.

All of these cases arose, or at least made national news, following the stunning release of the Ray Rice video in which he knocks out his now-wife.

Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended by the NFL, which has been under heavy criticism for its handling of that case and others.

The Phoenix police, in a statement, said detectives arrested Dwyer, a running back, in Tempe on charges of aggravated assault in a domestic violence case.

The investigation stemmed from two separate episodes at his home in July.

Over the past few months, THG has introduced fans to Human Barbie and also to a Human Ken Doll.

Now, we're reluctantly here to make readers familiar with Victoria Wild; aka the Human Blow-Up Doll.

Wild is a 30-year old French model who has spent close to $50,000 on a nose job; permanent lip implants; Botox; and THREE boob jobs (taking her to a size 32G) in order to fulfill her dream of resembling a sex toy.

“Who wouldn't want to be treated like a bimbo doll? It's such a sexy look,” Wild tells The Daily Mail. "People stare at me in the street and I love the way I stand out."

She most definitely does stand out, that's not up for debate.

But in a good way? Or a harrowing way? Click through this before photo of Victoria Wild and then a few after-surgery shots and decide whether she made the right call:

On Friday, Adrian Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges.

Perhaps having learned from the Ray Rice scandal earlier in the week, the Minnesota Vikings immediately deactivated Peterson for their week 2 game against the New England Patriots.

Now, just one day after that game, however, the Vikings have announced that Peterson will practice with the team this week and is expected to play against the New Orleans Saints this Sunday.

"To be clear, we take very seriously any matter that involves the welfare of a child," said team owners Zygi and Mark Wilf in a statement issued today.

 "At this time, however, we believe this is a matter of due process and we should allow the legal system to proceed so we can come to the most effective conclusions and then determine the appropriate course of action."

lllinois anchorman Dave Benton shocked viewers last week by announcing he has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and may have just months to live.

"As you know, I told you a few weeks ago that my brain cancer is back," Benton, 51, began, noting that he'd been to several physicians in the time since.

"Basically," he added, "my cancer is back, and it's too big for surgery and radiation. Doctors have told me that I may have four to six months to live."

With his co-anchor beside him, he went on to explain that he'd decided to try a new antibody treatment to slow down the growth of his tumor. The goal?

"To have a few more days and to make them the best they can be."

A married father of two adult children and a self-proclaimed "born-again Christian," the WCIA-TV personality said he's "at peace" with his diagnosis.

Clothing retailer Urban Outfitters has a history of controversial products and business practices, but the youth-oriented chain may have gone too far with a product that was offered for sale on its website over the weekend.

UO posted a "vintage" sweatshirt featuring the name and logo of Kent State University. The shirt was spattered with blood in a crude reference to the 1970 shootings at the school's campus that claimed 4 lives and permanently paralyzed a fifth student.

The shirt was apparently a one-of-a-kind item and is now listed as "sold out" on the company's website. It's currently being auctioned eBay for $550. There are no bids for the item as of yet.

This is far from the first time that UO has offended customers with its products. Back in 2012, Urban Outfitters pro-drinking shirts began popping up on high school and college campuses across the country, prompting backlash from parents and teachers.

Islamic State militants released a video Saturday showing the beheading of aid worker David Haines, the latest in a disturbing series of such executions.

The 44-year-old Haines, who was British, was abducted in Syria in 2013 while working for an international aid agency. His whereabouts had been unknown.

The British government had kept the kidnapping secret out of concern for his safety until another video was recently released by Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

ISIS' video identified him as a captive, showing him in an orange jumpsuit and calling out Prime Minister David Cameron personally for his soon-to-be beheading.

The British Foreign Office had said late Saturday that it was "working urgently to verify the video," but Cameron's statement left little room for ambiguity:

"The murder of David Haines is an act of pure evil. My heart goes out to his family who have shown extraordinary courage and fortitude."

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was indicted today for "reckless or negligent injury to a child." Both Peterson and his lawyer have declined to comment.

Peterson missed practice yesterday, but the Vikings say the absence was unrelated to the charges brought against him today. 

Peterson married Ashley Brown in July and has at least five children from previous relationships, though his exes and others have claimed that he's fathered as many as seven kids.

One of Peterson's sons died last year after being beaten by his mother's boyfriend. Peterson found out that he was the boy's father just two months before his death.

The 29-year-old running back led the NFL in rushing in 2012, and very nearly broke the record for rushing yards in a single season.

George Zimmerman had yet another brush with the law this week after he allegedly threatened to kill a man following a road rage incident. Seriously.

WSVN reports that the altercation took place in Lake Mary, Florida.

The man, whose name has not been reported by local media, also told the police that Trayvon Martin's killer was waiting for him at his work afterward.

George Zimmerman in Court

Zimmerman reportedly admitted to police that he had an altercation with the man, but won't face any legal action, as the man has declined to press charges.

The 30-year-old, acquitted in the Martin case last July, has avoided protracted legal battles two other times in the past year for exactly that reason.

In December, Zimmerman's girlfriend Samantha Scheibe declined to press charges after initially claiming he pointed a shotgun at her face during an argument.

This Florida couple gives new meaning to the term breaking and entering.

Allison Riddle and Evan Jones, both 18-year-old high school students, are accused of forcing their way into in Bradenton, Fla., home for sexual purposes.

The hornball teenagers needed a place to fornicate, in other words.

Their plan to get it in involved a calculated move to get in. Jones’ friend, who cuts the homeowner’s lawn, gave him the garage security code Saturday night.

The owner lives in Michigan (classic snowbird) and wasn't there, but a neighbor called the cops after spotting the two teens allegedly going into the house.

When local police showed up, the duo was doing each other on a bed.

"All right, we’re coming out!” Jones called from behind a closed door.

The family of Reeva Steenkamp is speaking out following the verdict in the Oscar Pistorius case after the athlete was found guilty of culpable homicide Friday.

Their verdict: Justice was NOT served.

Oscar Pistorius and girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. By now you know how this relationship tragically, devastatingly ended.

"This verdict is not justice for Reeva," her mother, June Steenkamp, told NBC News in an interview. "I just want the truth... She died a horrible death."

"[It was] a horrible, painful, terrible death, and she suffered, you know? And he shot through the door and I can't believe that they believe that it was an accident."

Her father, Barry Steenkamp, added, "it wasn't just disbelief on our minds. I think it was disbelief on everyone's, on most people who have been following the case."

"I just don't feel that this is the right sentence, you know?" June Steenkamp added. "They believe his story, and I don't believe that story. That's the difference."

Pistorius was found not guilty of murder, the most serious offense he could have been charged with, as the judge felt the evidence did not support it.
