Two guys were taking a haul of pot from Las Vegas to Montana when they decided they should try out the stuff to make sure it was good.

Bad idea! The two became paranoid, and Ayala-Doliente called 911 while in Idaho and asked the dispatcher who answered to please call off the undercover cops who were following them. The dispatcher played it cool, asked a few questions, and determined exactly what was going on.

Coliente and Holland Sward agreed to stop and surrender to the undercover agents after telling the dispatcher, "Hi, uh, we’re the two dummies that got caught trying to bring some stuff through your border and all your cops are just driving around us like a bunch of jack wagons, and I'd just like for you guys to end it."

 Once the dispatcher determined that the two had no weapons, they had one “really nice” pitbull, and they had tried to wave the cops down but it didn’t work, he obtained their location and told them help was on the way. The dispatcher heard Doliente tells his partner that he (dispatcher) was a nice guy and was gonna help them out.

Each of the men were charged with felony drug trafficking and police collected enough pot for a haul of $16,000 street value, according to the “Idaho State Journal.”

Sward received a five-year suspended sentence, five years of probation, and a month in jail. Ayala-Doliente, who tested positive for pot, cocaine, and oxycodone on his November sentencing day, received a year-and-a-half to eight years in prison.


A Florida man just traveled more than a thousand miles to own up to stealing something he hasn't owned for decades -- a television that he swiped way back in 1989.

Randy Iannacone showed up at the police station in Norwalk, Connecticut with a letter saying there was still a warrant out over the theft, which he committed while working as a custodian at a community center that no longer exists. Police first named Iannacone as a suspect for the theft several years ago after finding the TV in the possession of a man who said Iannacone forked it over to repay a debt.

Norwalk police rep Paul Resnick says, "We try to go out and serve it when we first get it, but sometimes people move and they're nowhere to be found. This fellow ended up in Florida, so he came back and turned himself in, which is pretty cool."


A Florida man who used an unlicensed scooter to run from cops said he deserved to get out of jail free because he was running for president -- and his name was Donald Trump.

The loopy loser, whose ID actually reveals that his name is Benjamin Moore, was spotted erratically steering the scooter down the middle of a sidewalk in the town of Stuart. When officers caught up with him, he admitted he had no driver's license and no registration, but did produce a large bag of weed from his pocket.

He also said that he deserved a break, because he could prove that he was actually Donald Trump -- and gave a birthdate that would make him a whopping 87 years old, nearly two decades older than the 69-year-old reality show candidate. He's being held in lieu of bond on a variety of charges.





Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale reached a settlement in their divorce, “People” reports. Because there was no pre-nup, both were entitled to half of the money earned and assets accrued during their almost 13-year marriage.

According to “People,” a source told them that Stefani got slightly more than the 50/50 split, and they have joint custody of their sons, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo. Rossdale does not receive child support. The only thing left is for approval from a California judge. Now that the divorce is final does this mean the much rumored proposal from Blake Shelton is coming soon?


With his dream of getting another shot in the NFL fading, former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow is reportedly considering entering a new arena -- politics.

The former University of Florida star is being encouraged to run for Congress. There is a vacancy coming up in Florida's Fourth Congressional District in Jacksonville and Republicans are pushing Tebow to run. Tebow has expressed an interest in politics in the past and actually lives in the Congressional district, so this could be his best shot at running for office. He last suited up for an NFL team last summer when he spent training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was cut before the start of the season. 


Is there something in the water in Hollywood? Earlier in the week we learned that Megan Fox is pregnant with her third child with soon to be ex husband Brian Austin Green. Now we learn that Eva Mendes is pregnant with her second child with Ryan Gosling and Blake Lively is expecting her second bundle of joy with hubby Ryan Reynolds.


A clever prank performed by three brothers on their heavily-medicated sister may have opened up some big doors for them.

The Phillips brothers made their sister Millicent believe there was a real zombie apocalypse after she had just had surgery to remove her wisdom teeth. Their elaborate and hilarious video went viral and now they're reportedly getting offers from TV producers to do a reality show. No deals have been made yet. The family says they'd love to make an appearance on The Walking Dead, which was the inspiration for the prank.

Zac Brown Involved in a Drug Bust

The incident happened at around 2:30 am last Friday morning in Palm Beach, Florida.

Cops received an anonymous tip about a suspicious vehicle in front of the Four Seasons, and ended up arresting a man in the car for possession of more that 30 grams of cocaine. The man told cops he had come there with 2 women, who were up in one of the rooms.

Cops went and checked out the room and found nine people partying, Zac Brown was one of them. One person was arrested for marijuana and 2 women were arrested for possession of cocaine.

Sources told TMZ that Zac was in the room and was questioned by police. He was in possession of prescription pills, and he had to provide proof that the pills had been prescribed for him, by a physician.

However, Zac was NOT included in the police report. We'll keep you updated with any new information that is made available.

***UPDATED**** 4/15/16 10:30AM

It has been reported by media outlet TMZ that the Palm Beach Police Department are huge fans of Zac and they lied on the police report in order to keep his name out of it to protect his wife and kids. It is also being reported that several of the officers asked Zac for an autograph and that one of the cops even mocked a woman they arrested at the party for not knowing who Zac was.

The D.A. Of The Day - Thursday, April 14th


A Tennessee man is feeling blue after being taken into custody for breaking into a high school and setting off a fire alarm -- in order to free the Smurfs he said were trapped inside the alarm box.

The unidentified 32-year-old suspect was wearing only socks and tighty-whities when he managed to sneak into the vocational building at William Blount High School in Maryville. He got in shortly after the opening bell, and wandered into the administration office, where he babbled incoherently and began playing with a dispenser of hand sanitizer, according to a secretary who called 911.

He managed to break into the alarm box before officers could arrive on the scene, then explained he was only doing it to save the cartoon characters whose lives depended on it. He's currently being held for psychiatric evaluation.


A Canadian woman really put the bite into crime when she sank her teeth into her mother -- who had just saved her from drowning -- and a cop who came to the older woman's rescue.

Christianne Verbonac had passed out in her bathtub while stoned, and her mom dragged her out of the water -- but the 22-year-old didn't appreciate the effort, and cornered the older woman in her kitchen, biting her in several places. When cops arrived to calm Verbonac down, she spat and cursed at them, eventually gnawing on the hand of one officer.

Verbonac's lawyer blamed the incident on substance abuse, but Judge Steven Bilodeau sentenced her to 45 days in jail, commenting, "I get that you were on drugs, but you have to appreciate how insane what you did was. She saved your life and you thanked her by chewing on her and then the police arrived and you chewed on them, too"


A Florida man had no idea that one day his body ink would do him in, but that’s exactly what happened to Jonathan Hewett.

Seems the man has some rather unusual tattoos on his face, and when he was caught on camera burglarizing a home in West Palm Beach, they stood out. One that was especially prominent was the “Redrum” tattoo on his neck. For those who have watched “The Shining,” you will remember that redrum was a prominent part of that movie (it spells murder when written backwards).

Thankfully the man didn’t murder anyone, but he was charged with burglary, grand theft and possession of a weapon by a felon (he had been in prison on a robbery conviction and other weapons-related charges.)

The home owner also recognized Hewett because the two had met previously, and police were able to track him down through information in the Palm Beach County Jail’s tattoo database.

It was historic night for NBA basketball in California Thursday. In Los Angeles, Kobe Bryant concluded his 20-year run with the Lakers by scoring 60 points and leading the team to a 101-96 comeback victory. It put a nice capper on Kobe's incredible career, despite the Lakers dismal season.

Celebs at Staples Center to witness Kobe's final game included the Lakers faithful Jack Nicholson, Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea(who played the National Anthem on bass prior to the game) and Snoop Dogg, as well as Kanye West, David Beckham and Jay Z. Several of Kobe's teammates over the years were also in attendance, including Shaquille O'Neal, Lamar Odom and Derek Fisher.

Across the state in Oakland, the defending champion Golden State Warriors set a new NBA record by getting their 73rd win of the season, topping a mark set by the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of 1995-96. The icing on the cake, Warriors star Steph Curry made his 400th 3-pointer of the season in the Warriors 125-104 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies.


The so-called "affluenza" teen is not getting off easy due to his family's wealth this time. On Wednesday, Ethan Couch was order to spend nearly two years in jail. The exact sentence is 180 days for each of the four individuals who died due to his 2013 drunk-driving car crash.

Although the sentence won't bring back those killed in the crash, the families of the victims will likely take some solace in knowing that Couch is finally being punished. Prior to Wednesday's sentencing, Couch's only punishment was probation, which led the families of some of the victims to file civil lawsuits seeking financial compensation.

Couch, who turned 19 Monday while locked up in a Texas jail, is no longer considered a minor. It's unclear whether his time already spent in jail will be deducted from his 720-day sentence.


Last weekend's shooting death of former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith may have actually been a case of self-defense.

The 34-year-old former defensive end was shot and killed by Cardell Hayes who rear-ended Smith, setting off a road rage encounter. That's when Hayes allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Smith dead. Smith's wife was also shot in the leg and is recovering in the hospital.

But police are investigating the events that led up to the shooting, and a passenger who was in the car with Hayes says that Smith was the aggressor and that Hayes was acting in self defense. Kevin Oneale says Hayes saved his life because Smith had a gun and was going to shoot them both. Police have confirmed that a loaded 9mm gun was found inside Smith's car.

Oneale is not charged in the case but has hired a lawyer who released a statement saying, "Was Will Smith acting like a Saint? This was a hit-and-run that ended up in a tragedy. You’ve got the aggression of two football players, facing off with each other as if they are on the field and you are going to get your point across by any means necessary." At least one witness has said that Smith threatened to get his gun first. Oneale's lawyer is calling it "justifiable homicide."

Kenny Rogers is adding more dates his final tour.

The Gambler's Last Deal will get under way May 13th in Mahnomen, Minnesota -- and continue through at least mid-November, with a pair of shows in London, England. His publicists hint the schedule may be extended into 2017.

The concerts will include a look back through Rogers’ 50-plus-year career, with personal stories, vintage photos and video clips. In addition to his long list of hits, Rogers plans to include songs he hasn’t performed in years.

Kenny adds, "I’m excited about making one more sweep around the world. This final tour is going to be a celebration of all of my music, and I know each night will be truly special." Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide and has charted a record in each of the last seven decades.

His complete itinerary is on Kenny's website.

The recent passing of Merle Haggard took center stage as many of the artists chose to include one of his songs in their two performances. The show wrapped with the entire group singing Merle's "Mama Tried."

This year's All for the Hall raised over $750,000, bringing the six-year total to over $3.5 million raised for the County Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

But until then, it’s going the road with dad. He says, “It fits perfectly in the trailer behind my tour bus, so everywhere we go this year on tour, we're taking it with us. And I told my little girl it's going to be hers when she gets to be 16."


Miranda Lambert is asking Nashville fans to continue to be on the lookout for Rosie, Ashley Monroe's dog -- who has been missing since last week.

The tiny pooch, whose tongue sticks out from the side of her mouth, has been sighted near Ashley's neighborhood near Nashville, but so far no one has been able to capture her.

Rosie has a collar and is microchipped. Needless to say, Ashley is devastated.

See a photo of Rosie here. Miranda is asking anyone who sees the dog to contact the MuttNation Foundation.

The D.A. Of The Day - Wednesday, April 13th


A drive-thru employee at a Sonic fast-food restaurant in Oklahoma City gave a customer a free burger and was thanked for it with a knuckle sandwich.

28-year-old Briana Lee tried to pay for her food with a credit card, but it was declined. After explaining that she had no cash on her, the restaurant worker let her go without paying.

But instead of showing gratitude for the generous act, she summoned the worker outside and sprayed her with mace. She knocked the woman to the ground, kicked her in the ribs and stole her apron, which contained cash.

Lee got back in her car and sped off, but police were able to catch up to her a short while later. She was arrested and charged with assault and battery and robbery. The worker was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.



The cleanliness and safety of a chicken wings restaurant in Colorado is being called into question after a video surfaced showing an employee shoving her face into a tray of raw chicken.

Employees at Wingstop in Thornton, Colorado are heard laughing and screaming as their co-worker accepts a dare and face-dives into the raw meat. The video, which has since been taken down, surfaced online thanks to a customer at the restaurant who witnessed the disgusting act and reported it to a local TV news station. The restaurant has never had any health code violations and the manager insists that the chicken was never served to customers. He said the employee showed poor judgement when she shoved her beak in the chicken but stopped short of mentioning whether or not the employee will be fired.


Police in Odessa, have arrested a woman suspected of sneaking into a funeral home, walking up to a dead woman's body in an open casket, and then she stole a ring off her finger.

Surveillance cameras captured the whole ghastly crime. The video shows a woman walking into the room and reaching inside a coffin holding the body of 88-year-old Lois Hicks. She is then seen twisting the dead woman's finger, even tearing off some of the skin, until the ring slips off. She then walks out of the room.

The deceased's daughter Vel McKee says, "I can’t believe someone would be that low. It makes me sick to my stomach. Horrible. I hope they catch her." Surveillance cameras outside the funeral home also caught the thief's vehicle and license plate. As for the ring, the family says it was a fake worth about only $10.

Music producer and reality TV star David Gest has died at the age of 62. Friend Imad Handi confirmed the news, saying “David was truly larger than life. He was not just a huge talent and a dear friend but a showbiz icon.”

Police issued a statement that read, "Police were called at 10:17 on Tuesday 12 April to the Four Seasons hotel, in Westferry Circus, E14, to reports of an unexplained death of a man in his 60s.

Charlie Sheen's ex Brooke Mueller is asking a judge to make him pay the child support he owes her.

Mueller claims Sheen still owes her $89,000 in back child support for their seven-year-old twin boys Bob and Max. Court documents show that Sheen is supposed to cough up $55,000 per month but has only paid a portion of what he owes over the past two months.

Sheen filed court documents last months insisting on having his child support payments reduced because his income had significantly dropped. 
He claims he can no longer afford to pay $55,000 because he now only makes about $87,000 a month. My goodness, how is he surviving...

Here's a clip comparing the two songs.. And I gotta say, they seem VERY similar..

Fans who hope to raise little surfer, music-lovin’ babies with Kip Moore, dream on. At a Bluebird Café songwriter round on Friday, Kip backpedaled on the subject of starting a family after he premiered a new song called “Fast Women.” The new song addresses Kip’s life on the road while his friends start families with the lyrics, “All of my buddies yeah they’re settlin’ down/ Making deep roots in their no name towns/ They got kids, someday I want kids.”

Kip shared the round with rising act and mom-to-be Caitlyn Smith. Later in the night, Kip offered to invite her to be on his tour in the fall. She joked, “All right, Kip. With a baby, Kip? You want to babysit?”

He said, “That last song I said one day I want kids, I don’t want them now. I recently took my guitar player Dave and our drummer Erich … I wanted them to be able to take their kids for the first time on the bus. It was so awesome because I love hanging out with them but I love that I can give them back and I’ll go surf and do my thing.”

A suspected beer thief in Florida ended up behind bars -- after repeatedly calling 911 to report that he'd been accused of stealing beer.

Philip Chege dialed the emergency number nine times in less than an hour last Sunday afternoon, claiming the manager at J-Food convenience store had accused him of pocketing a one dollar can of brew. The store owners insisted they had to intention of pressing charges against Chege, but said they declined to sell him the suds because he'd repeatedly hit them with abusive and racist slurs.

An officer who was dispatched to the scene warned Chege about making unnecessary 911 calls, but he rang the number again even before the cop was able to pull out of the parking lot.


A South African man had a really strange day at the office last week.

Interface designer David Perel was sitting at his desk when all of a sudden, a drone flew through his window and slammed right into his head. At first, Perel says he thought there was an explosion outside the building and that he was struck by flying debris, but he soon discovered the white quad-copter laying on his desk.

Luckily he suffered only a minor bruise on his head and a headache. Once he collected himself, he was able to remove the memory card from the drone and upload the video which shows the entire flight including the moment of impact. He later shared it on YouTube.


You think you need your morning cup of coffee? This kid needed it really baaaaaaad.

Workers at a Starbucks in Northern California had just opened the store for the day when a goat wandered in for her caffeine fix. Baristas tried to use a banana to lure her out, but she was content staying put and chewed on a box instead. So they called police and the fire department, who were able to hold the goat until animal control arrived and took her away. A few hours later, the animal's owner came to get her.

Apparently the goat, named Millie, lives at a home a few doors down from the Starbucks and was just exploring.

Megan Fox is pregnant.

The actress walked the red carpet last night in support of the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. She flaunted an adorable baby bump. It’s smallish, but undeniable.

Entertainment reporter Marc Malkin tweeted from the CinemaCon event, (quote) “#selfie #MeganFox Yup, she's pregnant! And looking more gorgeous than ever!”

The question remains: Who’s the daddy?

Last summer, Megan filed divorce papers. But she’s still legally wed to Brian Austin Green. Recently, they’ve been hanging out together. Sometimes with their two children, and on others it's just the two of them acting like a normal couple.

A couple months ago, however, Megan was romantically linked to Damon Wayans Junior. They met on the set of the TV sitcom New Girl.

Twang Town Lowdown - Monday, April 11th




Three men working for Luke Bryan's stage crew were injured in a serious car accident early Sunday morning (4/10). According to the Odessa File, the accident occurred 70 miles south of Syracuse, New York, where Bryan had been playing a show at the Carrier Dome on Saturday night (4/9). The three men were reportedly heading home to West Virginia following Luke's concert when the vehicle hit a ditch, went airborne and crashed into a tree along Route 13.

First responders had to use the Jaws of Life to rescue two of the men who were trapped inside the vehicle and all three were airlifted to local hospitals. The men have not yet been identified, but two of them were brothers and all of them were in their 30s.



Carrie Underwood says her one-year-old son, Isaiah, is soaking up everything he comes across. She tells People, "He's so sweet and so smart. He's a little sponge just growing and learning every day. He's just the best thing." And that means Underwood needs to be mindful of what she says around him. She shares, "He'll hear you say something and then he'll mock you. Right now he walks around the bus and he's like 'OK, OK.' It's adorable."

Underwood also talks about finding time to spend with her husband Mike Fisher now that there's a baby in their lives. She says, "It's been — not challenging, but just something that we've really just trying to be mindful of and try to make time for each other."
Carrie adds that their planning a much-needed vacation right now.


Blake Shelton is hitting Christian radio this week his brand-new single "Savior's Shadow." The song is the latest peek at Shelton's forthcoming album, If I'm Honest, and is one of the most personal songs he's ever recorded. Blake teamed up with Nashville songwriters Jessi Alexander and Jon Randall to pen this tune after its inspiration came to him in a dream. Blake says, "At a very dark time in my life last year I dreamed the first verse of this song. I woke up and immediately wrote it down. Now, looking back, I know it was God's way of telling me that he's here and things are gonna be OK."



When Carrie Underwood's husband, Mike Fisher, teamed up with Garth Brooks for a duet last week, Carrie said she wanted hockey legend Wayne Gretzky to play a pick-up game with her as payback. Now, that idea is getting some support from Brooks. In a recent Facebook chat with fans, Garth said he hopes a pick-up game with Underwood and Gretzky does take place and even had a message for "The Great One". Brooks said, "I think the plan is, we gotta Gretzky now to get Carrie in full gear and get her out skating. I think that's it…So Wayne, I'm calling you out, and trust me, it'll be the best time you've ever had without those stinkin' boys."

Garth said he plans on completing his duet with Mike at an upcoming date in Nashville, something he hinted at back in January after Carrie shared a video of her husband singing his song "The River" in the car.
In the Facebook chat, Brooks and also wished Fisher's hockey team -- the Nashville Predators -- good luck as they enter the NHL playoffs.
Brooks' Facebook chat can be seen here. The part about his duet with Mike appears around the 1:14 mark.
