(Newser) – Tennis great Jimmy Connors got himself into a little scrape with the law last night. Details are sketchy, but police arrested the eight-time Grand Slam champ after some kind of confrontation outside the arena of his beloved UC Santa Barbara basketball team. Cops says Connors, 56, refused to leave the area when ordered to do so at the start of the team's game with top-ranked North Carolina. He was booked and released.
