James Meyers of Concord, NC was pulled over because his break light was out. This turned into the police serving him an arrest warrant for a movie he rented and failed to return to a store that has since been closed 14 years ago.
Meyers tells the whole story in this video :
The movie in question? 'Freddy Got Fingered', a 2001 box office failure starring Tom Green.
Hopefully, he at least enjoyed the movie. Not many people did.
Tom Green has found out about this and has told the Daily News that he'd happily pay the $200 fine attached to the warrent if it would help.
Martin Shkreli is famous for his love of hip hop, his Twitter and raising the price of life-saving anti-parasitic drug, Daraprim, from $13.50 to $750 per pill. Before his price gouging began at his current pharmaceutical company, Turing, he was the CEO of his own pharmaceutical company, Retrophin.
Now the poster boy for everything wrong in the healthcare industry has been arrested. Federal prosecuters are making a case against him involving securities fraud. A key part of his scheme involved using money from Retrophin to pay off a debt from his hedge fund that lost millions.
He's had ongoing problems with Retrophin since leaving/being ousted from the company. He has complained the company is trying to dodge paying him benefits that are due and, according to Bloomberg, Retrophin replaced him because they had "serious concerns about his conduct". Apparently they were right to be concerned.
His last tweet conversation is pretty ironic considering the circumstances:
He might have to learn to be humble in prison. At least he'll have something to occupy his time.
According to Page Six, reality-TV sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner had eggs thrown at them by a disgruntled woman while promoting their new clothing line at a mall in Sydney, Australia.
The woman started throwing eggs at the pair from the top level of a mall, but neither were hit.
"Following an incident at a shopping center in Parramatta around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, a 25-year-old woman from Punchbowl was arrested and taken to the Parramatta police station," a spokesperson from the New South Wales police confirmed to E! News. "She was charged with three counts of assaulting a police officer. The police officers were trying to arrest her and she resisted. The woman was also charged with behaving in an offensive manner."
These sisters were promoting their Kendall + Kylie Collection at Forever New. There is no footage of the incident, but it probably looked something like this...
This kid deserves all the bad things life can give him.
He also needs to learn how to handle his liquor and/or his lack of macaroni and cheese.
Luke Gatti, AKA All That's Wrong with the World, was refused service for being a drunken, 19-year-old a**hat Oct. 5. But he didn't walk away there. Terrible people like him never do.
He proceeds to get very, very into the face of the cafeteria manager, the cook and anyone of authority as he consistently yells and whinges about how much he wants mac and cheese and how low are those who refuse to give it to him.
Things get bad before the chef steps in and wrestles the little bastard to the ground.
It's an emotional journey.
Here's the surprise twist that's not a surprise at all:
Arrested two weeks ago on Phillips Street for disorderly conduct (which included calling a detective the N-word), this time around Mr. Gatti seemed to go out of his way to get arrested yet again on that same notorious street, and when taken back to the police station, assaulted an officer.
With his father looking on, Luke Gatti was arraigned this morning before Judge John Payne who set bail at $250, taken out of the $1,000 bail posted over the weekend to get out of jail.
Noting the arrest only two weeks ago Judge Payne said to Gatti, "I'm a little concerned you're going to pull a trifecta before the month is over."
Welp, maybe this time they'll actually put him in jail for a while.
Ahmed Mohamed, a 9th grader at McArthur High in Irving, Texas, was sitting in class when one of his homemade inventions began beeping. The teacher asked what it was and he brought up the digital clock he had made. She said it looked like a bomb and shortly after, police led Ahmed out of the school in handcuffs.
So the 14-year-old missed the student council meeting and took a trip in handcuffs to juvenile detention. His clock now sits in an evidence room. Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb — though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that it's a clock.
In the meantime, Ahmed's been suspended, his father is upset and the Council on American-Islamic Relations is once again eyeing claims of Islamophobia in Irving.
Ahmed's father isn't the only one who is upset. Social media has exploded in frustration over Ahmed's treatment. Through #IStandWithAhmed, bewildered supporters, many of the same generation, have taken to Twitter and Facebook to express their anger over what they see as patent racism.
So sad that this young person has to go through society's terrible perceptions and stereotypes😩
