Cornley out

MANILA, Philippines --- Former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) import Jamelle Cornley was released from the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) Jail Facility at Camp Karingal the other night after posting a P14,000 bail for his involvement in a melee inside a hotel where he knocked down an apprehending police officer.

Around 7 p.m. Monday, the former PBA best import from professional club Rain or Shine gained his temporary liberty after spending the Holy Week in detention for charges of direct assault on an agent of authority and for alarm and scandal.

Last March 27, the 25-year-old Cornley went berserk inside a hotel in Quezon City claiming to have been robbed of $1,400 by his female companions.

When police officers arrived at the scene to pacify him, the burly 6'10" Cornley continued his tantrums and allegedly punched PO2 Anselmo Lazatin.

Lazatin was later brought to the hospital where he underwent CT scan for back pains.

If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
