CAPITOL STAFFER ARRESTED

Congressman's staffer denies guilt in gun case

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Pennsylvania congressman's press secretary has pleaded not guilty to a weapons charge after Capitol police say he carried a gun into a federal office building in Washington.

An attorney for Ryan Shucard says he entered the plea Saturday in D.C. Superior Court. Lawyer Jason Kalafat called the gun incident unintentional.

Shucard is the press secretary for Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Marino. He was released on his own recognizance.

Capitol Police say Shucard set off a metal detector Friday morning while entering the Cannon House Office building with a handgun and magazine.

Shucard was charged with carrying a pistol outside a home or business, which is a felony.

Shucard has worked since May for Marino, who represents northeastern Pennsylvania. Shucard has been placed on unpaid leave.

ARLINGTON-PUB CRAWLS

Arlington to require permits for pub crawls

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Officials in Arlington will require the organizers of pub crawls to get a permit and pay for any county services the event uses.

The Arlington County Board voted unanimously Saturday to require the permits. Officials say they've seen a significant increase in pub crawls and the participants in them since the county adopted its special events policy in 2012.

The county manager will develop the details for managing the pub crawls. The new policy will allow the county to assess fees and charge pub crawl event organizers for police, fire and emergency services.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Wizards have acquired forward Kris Humphries from the Boston Celtics for a protected 2015 second-round draft pick.

Humphries appeared in 69 games, averaging 8.4 points and 5.9 rebounds, last season with Boston.

In 10 seasons with the Jazz, Raptors, Mavericks, Nets and Celtics, he is averaging 6.8 points and 5.5 rebounds.

Humphries had his best season in 2011-12 when he averaged 13.8 points and 11.0 rebounds for the Nets. He was selected with the 14th pick in the 2004 draft by the Jazz out of Minnesota.

Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said Saturday that "Kris is a proven veteran and will be a versatile addition to our frontcourt."

Humphries was previously married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

On Friday, the Wizards re-signed forward Drew Gooden.
