Bill Cosby (finally) Arrested! Bail Set at $1Million

The other shoe has finally dropped after a long laundry list of women have emerged over these last few years accusing Bill Cosby of sexual molestation spanning decades. The 78 year-old comedian was arrested on sexual allegation charges on Wednesday with bail set at $1 million. Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a press conference that “Mr. Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault.” The charges stem from his 2004 encounter with former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. “Mr. Cosby made two sexual advances at her that were rejected,” Steele said. “Mr. Cosby urged her to

Sandra Bland Dashcam Video Arrest Appears To Be Edited -Ava DuVernay Agrees

Video footage of the arrest of Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old woman who was pulled over by a state trooper  in Waller County, TX on July 10, and later died in a jail cell, has finally been released -and it’s a doozy! Not only does the state trooper’s dashcam video capture the trooper threatening Bland by saying “I will light you up!” as he points a stun gun at her. But the video also shows that the state trooper did not seem to be in harm’s way when he tried to physically remove Bland from the car, slam her to the

Naomi Campbell Ditches Her Cell Phone for a New Weapon: Her Handbag!

naomi-campbell-handbagpurse Looks like supermodel Naomi Campbell (and her super temper!) has a new weapon! The British beauty has been accused of attacking a photographer (and putting him in the hospital!) while on vacation in Italy with her billionaire beau Mikhail Prokhorov. The photog, Gaetano Di Giovanni, says Campbell scratched and bruised his face after she slapped him and hit him with her handbag. "First she hit with her bag, screaming at me and then she tried to slap me," he detailed to an Italian newspaper, "I managed to avoid her – but her nails still got my eye." "Media reports circulating that Naomi Campbell attacked a photographer in Lipari, Sicily are completely untrue," her rep said. "The photographer was seen following Naomi Campbell on a small boat, taking photographs, the day after the alleged incident."

Foul Play: New Yorker Editor Says Henry Louis Gates Jr. ‘Arrested For Being Black at Home’

henrylouisgates.jpg Last week, Henry Louis Gates Jr., the director of Harvard University's W.E.B. DuBois Institute for African and African American Research, was arrested by Cambridge police officers investigating a reported break-in. But the house he was accused of breaking into was his own. Today, New Yorker editor David Remnick has published an editorial on the arrest, calling foul play, echoing Gates' sentiments that no matter how accomplished, “This is what happens to black men in America.” "Gates was arrested for being black while at home," Remnick writes. The Washington Post also has an exclusive with Gates, where he says, "I studied the history of racism. I know every incident in the history of racism from slavery to Jim Crow segregation. I haven't even come close to being arrested. I would have said it was impossible."

REPORT: Chris Brown ‘Knocked’ Rihanna ‘Around’, Singer Suffers Black Eye & Bruises

As previously reported, Chris Brown and Rihanna canceled their appearances at this year's Grammy Awards after being involved in a domestic violence battle with one another. While both stars have yet to go public with their legal drama, photos have surfaced on the web, showing the two together in Brown's rented Lamborghini minutes before the incident was reported to LAPD. But a source close to the couple has spoken out, identifying Rihanna as the victim (Brown surrendered to LAPD on Sunday and was released on $50K bail). "Chris knocked her around," the source tells People. "Black eye, blood, bruises. She had to be treated by a doctor." While Rihanna is cooperating with police in their investigation, the source says Rihanna is willing to forgive Brown (who is described as "low-key, easy-going and mild-mannered" by a former teacher). "I would be so sad if she went back to him," the source adds.
