Lakers F LeBron James was suspended one game for throwing an elbow at Pistons C Isaiah Stewart, who was suspended two games for trying to fight.The NBA suspended star Lakers forward LeBron James for one game for "recklessly hitting" Pistons center Isaiah Stewart on Sunday night that left his face bloodied and required eight stitches. Stewart will be suspended two games for "escalating an on-court altercation by repeatedly and aggressively pursuing" James in an unsportsmanlike manner.
The door and windows were smashed and items on the walls had been taken off and broken. Also damaged was memorabilia belonging to Dingell's late husband, Representative, the longest-serving member of who died in 2019 at age 92.
Dingell, a Democrat who represents Michigan's strongly Democratic 12th Congressional District, told the Detroit Free Press that she believes the break-in happened before Monday, but that the damage was not discovered until then.
Due to a recent fire in the building requiring work to be done, the office was closed. Dingell said someone stopped by the office Friday and it was not vandalized.
Dingell had been using the Dearborn office since being elected in 2014, and before that John Dingell used it when he was in office.
'Smash-and-grab' crimes: why some US cities are seeing a spree
A spree of brazen "smash-and-grab" crimes has plagued upscale stores in San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities, with mobs of thieves making off with luxury goods to resell.At least 18 people broke into a Nordstrom department store in Los Angeles Monday night and stole thousands of dollars in merchandise, the city's police chief said.
"Thankfully, my staff and I are safe and no one was hurt, but we must also recognize the impact attacks like this one and constant threats have had on my staff and all Congressional staff," Dingell said in a news release. "This needs to stop now."
Dingell's spokesperson, Mackenzie Smith, released a statement saying that the Dearborn office will remain closed as the investigation continues.

"We are working with [police] to identify who is responsible and hold them accountable for their actions," Dingell said.
"The motive for today's incident is unclear, but what I can tell you is that the disrespect, violence and division need to end in this country," she added. "We need to practice civility and kindness, not divisiveness and anger."
Dingell said her office has been receiving threats for months. It comes at a time of deep polarization betweenand and the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of former President . More than 675 people have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the Capitol, officials said.
Can Jim Harbaugh complete his 2021 overhaul with an upset of Ohio State?
It’s hard to think of a comparable schematic overhaul to the one Jim Harbaugh oversaw at Michigan this season. After an underwhelming 2020 when Michigan went 2-4 and led to him taking a pay cut, the changes have prompted a resurgence that has seen the No. 5 Wolverines go 10-1 and rocket into the thicket of the College Football Playoff conversation in 2021. On Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan will receive the ultimate referendum on how far it has come. And, potentially, how much further it needs to go. The Wolverines play No.
"This vandalization really hits home," Dingell said of the damage to her office. "Regardless of if your views differ from mine or from your neighbor's, we need to learn to hear each other out and work together to solve the issues facing our nation. Violence and vandalism aren't the answer."
