Weather wise, it will be much drier across South Florida than in previous days but rain chances stick around into the afternoon with high temperatures pushing into the low 90s.
No. 1 - The family of a 14-year-old soccer player is claiming the older team members of a Weston soccer club hazed and violated him during a recent trip abroad. According to an incident report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office, the victim traveled with Weston FC from January 26 to February 3 to Medellin, Colombia.
The teen told detectives that at the beginning of the trip, the older members of the team were verbally assaulting him and calling him offensive names before, on January 29, a report said six soccer players grabbed and carried the teen into his hotel room and forcefully removed his pants and underwear.
No. 2 - It was billed as one of the top places to let the good times roll — a party boat named the "Sea You Twerk” in the waters off South Florida. But for now though, the Sea You Twerk is off the dance floor.
Owner Dallas Allan Ladd is being charged with felonies in federal court. He says he's innocent, but prosecutors say he violated a direct order from the Captain of the Port, lied to U.S. Coast Guard investigators, and obstructed their investigation, too.
No. 3 - A South Florida teen who was suspended twice from lacrosse over a play on the field is being suspended from football during his senior year and will lose half a season of playing lacrosse, a ruling some believe is unfair, racially targeted and could cost him his future.
Luther Johnson V, or LJV, has never been disciplined on or off the field -- until recently. The Florida High School Athletics Association suspended the Christopher Columbus High School student twice for what coaches and referees called "unsportsmanlike" behavior on the field.
No. 4 - David Ortiz returned to Boston on Monday night, a day after the former Red Sox slugger affectionately known as Big Papi was ambushed by a gunman at a bar in his native Dominican Republic.
The 43-year-old retired athlete had been in stable condition in intensive care at a Santo Domingo hospital after doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine, according to his spokesman, Leo Lopez. He said Ortiz's liver was also damaged in the shooting Sunday night.
No. 5 - A St. Louis judge issued another order Monday to keep Missouri's only abortion clinic operating while a fight over the facility's license plays out in court.
Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer granted Planned Parenthood's request for a preliminary injunction, which extends his earlier order to temporarily block the state from allowing the St. Louis facility's license to lapse. The courtroom win for abortion-rights advocates comes after a string of setbacks in legislatures around the U.S.
