After a couple weeks of investigating, Brazilian officials have come to the conclusion that former boxing champ Arturo Gatti committed suicide. Brazilian authorities were holding Gatti’s wife for the time being, believing she was the guilty culprit. After further investigations, Gatti’s widow has been released from a Brazilian jail.
This seems a little strange.
Actor David Carradine made his mark, first, with the television show ‘Kung Fu’ in the 1970’s. He then reappeared in the recent ‘Kill Bill’ movies. Unfortunately, at age 72, David Carradine has passed away. His cause of death? I have no idea! But new discoveries are leading to some pretty bizzare questions. MSNBC.com reports:
Shock over reports of actor David Carradine’s sudden death in Thailand was compounded when officials there said he was found hanging with a rope tied around his neck and genitals. Those circumstances have led to speculation that the “Kill Bill” star’s death was a case of accidental auto-erotic asphyxiation — death while masturbating and restricting the flow of oxygen to the brain as a means to intensify orgasm.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Dante Stallworth was driving in Miami last Saturday when he struck and killed a 59-year-old man, Mario Reyes.
Today, a local Miami television station reported that Stallworth was legally drunk when he struck the pedestrian. WSVN-Fox reported that Stallworth had a blood alcohol level of .12, the legal limit is .08. However, Miami police will not confirm the reports.
Stallworth has not been charged.
Stallworth released this statement through the Cleveland Browns,
My family and I are grief stricken over the tragic accident which occurred Saturday on Miami Beach where Mario Reyes sadly lost his life,” Stallworth said. “My thoughts and prayers are with the Reyes family during this incredibly difficult time. Unfortunately, since this accident is still under police investigation, I cannot comment further on the matter at this time.
Good luck Dante Stallworth. I would think that a personal rule for ALL people, whether an athlete or not, should be not to drive after consuming any level of alcohol. If you know there’s alcohol at the place you’re heading, there are a number of ways to get home safely (designated driver, taxi cab, call a friend, etc.). I know people have heard it a trillion times but it couldn’t be more true: when you get behind the wheel after drinking you endanger everyone else on the road, not just yourself.
Natasha Richardson died Wednesday after being taken off of life support.
Richardson was taking ski lessons on a beginner slope in Canada when she slipped and hit her head. According to reports, the first ambulance to arrive on the scene was turned away, without an EMT even seeing Richardson. Resort spokespeople have issued a statement saying that Richardson claimed she felt “fine” and that she was up and walking around shortly after the incident. A second ambulance was called to Richardson’s room when her condition worsened.
The lights will be dimmed Thursday night on Broadway’s theater marquees for one minute at 8 p.m. in tribute to Richardson, who won a Tony in 1998 for her performance as Sally Bowles in “Cabaret.” She also was nominated for a Tony in 1993 for her performance in “Anna Christie.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, including her husband Liam Neeson and two sons.
Once again, our tax dollars pay for stuff like this…
23-year-old Paul Duran Jr. was forced to move cells in an Oklahoma penitentiary after a fight with his cellmate. No big deal, this stuff happens all the time. Well, Duran was put into a cell with Jessie James Dalton. As if the name isn’t bad-ass enough, Dalton and Duran were co-defendants in a 2002 murder case. Duran pleaded guilty to a robbery charge and testified against Dalton, who then received a life-sentence without parole.
Fifteen minutes after Duran was put into the cell with Jessie James Dalton, he was found beaten to death.
Prison spokesman Jerry Massie said that the two were not suppose to be put into the same cell (ya think?) and that officials are trying to figure out how something like this could have happened
Next time you receive your paycheck, take a good look at the amount taken out for taxes and realize that it’s going to the finest prison guards money can buy.
American Idol judge Simon Cowell told the Daily Mail that he intends on being cryogenically frozen when he dies so that he can come back at a later date. Simon says that, years after his death, medical science will improve beyond all expectations and be able to bring him back to the human race.
It’s nice to know that while millions of Americans struggle to maintain their mortgages, Simon Cowell’s dumb ass can worry about paying large sums of money when he dies so that he can come back at a later date and grace people with his presence. God I hate that guy.
