NASCAR-STEWART

CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (AP) -- A grand jury will decide whether NASCAR driver Tony Stewart will be charged in the August death of a fellow driver at a sprint car race in upstate New York.

Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo said Tuesday that after reviewing evidence collected by sheriff's investigators, he has decided to present it to a grand jury. Tantillo could have determined there was not enough evidence to support charges and dropped the case.

Stewart's car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr. at a dirt-track race in Canandaigua on Aug. 9. The 20-year-old had climbed from his car after it had spun while racing alongside Stewart.

Stewart issued a statement saying he looks forward to the process being completed and will continue to cooperate.

BROWNS-GORDON ARRESTED

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A prosecutor says suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon will receive probation and undergo a substance-abuse assessment after pleading guilty to a drunken-driving charge in North Carolina.

Acting Wake County district attorney Ned Mangum says Gordon received a 60-day suspended jail sentence and one year of unsupervised probation Tuesday.

The Pro Bowler is serving an NFL imposed season-long suspension for a failed marijuana test, though that could be reduced under proposed drug policy changes .

For his DWI, Gordon must comply with any treatment recommended through the substance-abuse assessment, pay a $100 fine and court costs, and perform community service. His driver's license was also suspended.

Gordon's attorney, Trey Fitzhugh, entered the plea on Gordon's behalf on a charge of driving while impaired from a July arrest in Raleigh.

T25-S CAROLINA-STAYING FOCUSED

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier figures he's got an equally difficult task getting No. 14 South Carolina ready for Vanderbilt as he did last week for Georgia.

Spurrier said while the Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) picked up a big victory over then-top-10 ranked Georgia, they are not close to being a dominant team that can take wins for granted. So they can't overlook the struggling Commodores (1-2, 0-1).

South Carolina got several fortunate breaks to preserve last week's 38-35 victory, including two missed field goals by Georgia kicker Marshall Morgan and a Bulldogs intentional grounding penalty from the Gamecocks' 4 late in the fourth quarter.

The win kept South Carolina in the thick of the SEC East race. But Spurrier knows his team must rely on strong play and not good fortune.
