Shoplifter runs over her son

A Macon woman is in police custody after she ran over her 4-year-old son in the parking lot while fleeing the Houston County Galleria in Centerville.

The tragic incident happened on Thursday night, when a Belk loss prevention officer observed Arkebia Albury, 25, shoplifting inside the store.

The security officer followed Albury and her children, ages 2 and 4, into the parking lot, according to a report on Macon.com.

When he ordered her to stop, Albury jumped into her 2001 Toyota Camry and hit the gas, but only her 2-year-old had made it into the passenger side of the car.

As the officer pleaded with Albury to leave the 4-year-old until an ambulance arrived, Albury got out out of the car and picked up the injured child.

“She picks the little boy up and throws him in the car and drives off,” Centerville Police Chief Sidney Andrews said.

Police caught up with Albury's Toyota on Wilson Drive, near the mall. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with severe head and internal injuries.

“The child is in bad shape,” Andrews said. “It wasn’t looking too good.”

In addition to the 2 toddlers, Albury's sister and niece were also in the car. The women were not charged since they stayed in the car when the shoplifting occurred.

Andrews said he wasn't sure what was taken in the theft.

“I believe it was a couple of T-shirts. I do know it was clothing. It was a misdemeanor amount,” he said. “This certainly was not worth it.”

Albury is charged with with two counts of cruelty to children, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting.

Kerry and Mrs. Obama were cordial and polite to each other while visiting the Savoy School in Washington, DC on Friday, May 24. Rumor has it that Kerry enjoyed a romantic fling with President Barack Obama. Mrs. Obama sat with pursed lips as Kerry performed with the students during a program at the school. Earlier this year Mrs. Obama vacationed separately from her husband. She plans to take another extended vacation on Martha's Vineyard with her daughters next month. It is assumed that Mr. Obama will vacation with Reggie Love again. The Savoy School was selected last year by President Obama to receive the Turnaround Arts Initiative from the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. The school was once one of the nation's lowest performing schools.

    Vanessa Williams lawsuit

    Vanessa Williams, executive director of the National Conference of Black Mayors, owes over $126,000 in defaulted loans and attorney's fees to 2 top executives of rapper T.I.'s Grand Hustle Records.

    Court records obtained by FOX 5 senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell shows that the National Conference of Black Mayors leaves a trail of unpaid bills around the country. The black mayor's group, with over 580 mayors, owes almost $1 million in unpaid bills, liens and court judgments against them.

    The annual mayor's conference will be held in Atlanta next week, but as Dale Russell has learned, the head of the convention is leaving a trail of unpaid loans, liens and judgments herself.

    Tamera Mowry Shares Her Curly Hair Secrets

    Don't you hate it when highly favored LSLH women pretend that their good hair isn't one of the benefits of their biracial heritage?

    Let's face it, nappy hair is called nappy for a reason. It takes a good deal of effort (and strong chemicals) to tame our tight African curls.

    For women like Tamera Mowry and her twin sister, Tia, half the battle is won because they inherited their soft, easy to manage curls from their white ancestors.

    On her blog, Tamera suggests that everyone (even those of us with tight, hard to manage curls) can achieve her soft bouncy curls by simply drying our hair with a cotton tee instead of a towel which causes split ends.

    Boy Scouts Vote to Admit Openly Gay Boys Yesterday, the Boy Scouts of America voted to admit openly gay boys for the first time. But Pascal Tessier, 16, has mixed feelings about the historic decision. At 16, he is one step away from earning his Eagle Scout -- the highest honor for a Boy Scout. He is also openly gay.

    "I was thinking that today could be my last day as a Boy Scout," Tessier said. "Obviously, for gay Scouts like me, this vote is life-changing."

    Tessier is concerned that he will be kicked out of the organization when he turns 18.

    That's because, despite ongoing pressure from gay rights advocates and corporate sponsors, the Boy Scouts of America remains resistant to allowing openly gay scout leaders.

    "That one couple hours (between 17 and 18) will make me not a good person," Tessier said.

    Skylar Diggins has fans

    I admit I didn't know who Skylar Diggins was until rapper Lil Wayne started lusting after her on his Twitter page last year.

    Instead of being totally grossed out by a gremlin lusting after her, Diggins was actually flattered by the attention.

    Anyway, I had no idea how loyal (and rude) Diggins' fans were (I didn't even know she had fans). One irate fan was so incensed by yesterday's post on Skylar bragging about her gift from Jay Z that she emailed me a nasty letter.

    The letter tickled me because the fan assumes that I give a rat's a** that Diggins has a new Mercedes Benz. My 2004 Jetta may not be sitting on dubs, but it's paid for.

    Read the email after the break.

    Guess Who

    This actress is one of the most beautiful black women in Hollywood. She lives a life of luxury and comfort that most women can only dream of.

    It would seem that her life is complete. She is currently engaged to handsome NBA superstar and she plays stepmom to his two preteen sons. The only blemish on her record seems to be the cold, callous and unsympathetic way in which she deals with the NBA star's troubled ex-wife.

    Bus Company Cancels 'Ghetto' Tours

    A bus company has cancelled tours that promised tourists a glimpse into the seedier side of New York "from a safe distance."

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the company, Real Bronx Tours, cancelled the tours amid outrage from local residents.

    Three times a week, the $45 tour gave foreign visitors a glimpse at food lines, drug dealers chilling outside corner bodegas, seedy housing projects, and a park described as a pickpocket hangout.

    The tour website described the Bronx as a borough that was "notorious for drugs, gangs, crime and murders."

    Medical Minute: Bipolar Disorder

    Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, 43, returned home to her New York City apartment today after dropping her daughter off at school this morning. This is the first photo of Zeta-Jones since her much-publicized admission to a facility for treatment of bipolar disorder.

    Her husband, Michael Douglas, described Zeta-Jones's admission to the facility as "a 10,000 mile check-up."

    Zeta-Jones revealed her diagnosis exclusively to People magazine in July 2011. "This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them," she told the magazine.

    So what is bipolar disorder, you ask?

    Beyonce drops more hints that she is NOT pregnant

    We all know that narcissistic singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter will do anything for attention -- even fake a pregnancy.

    But when news swirled last week that the mother-of-one was pregnant with her second pillow baby, Beyonce did very little to fuel the rumors. In fact, she lashed out at E! news and The NY Post, calling them "low life," for insinuating that she was pregnant.

    It's hard to figure Beyonce out sometimes.

    Nick, a switch hitter for the Indians, was put on mandatory paternity leave by the ball club this week.

    “I am so excited. I never in a million years thought I’d have a little girl, but over the last six months, the pink and purple dresses that I’ve bought,” Nick said in an interview with Yahoo last week. “My wife says, ‘You’re going to spoil that little girl so much.’ I talk to her every night. We’re only a couple weeks out now. Jo and I, we’re so excited to meet her and to bring her in the world and give her a whole heap of love. It’s that life-altering moment that I need. I’ve been cruising along. I’ve got a beautiful wife — she’s my best friend. I’ve got a great job and a beautiful home, and now it’s time to be a dad.”

    Rapper Tim Dog

    Back in February, media outlets reported the death of long forgotten rapper Tim Dog who reportedly died of seizures related to diabetes in Atlanta on Valentine's Day.

    But a Mississippi prosecutor haas issued a warrant for the rapper's arrest after a woman conducted her own investigation into Dog's suspicious death.

    The woman, Ester Pilgrim, uncovered information that indicates Dog, real name Timothy Blair, is a con man who may have faked his own death to avoid paying back $2 million in loans.

    Toya Wright and Mickey Wright

    Antonia "Toya" Wright and her husband Mickey "MempHitz" Wright have been shopping their reality TV show for over a year now with no luck.

    Toya and Mickey have shopped their show titled "Mickey and Toya: The Wright Way" to BET, MTV, FUSE and OXYGEN networks without any offers. MempHitz even dumped his thug nom de guerre in favor of his given name, Mickey, to upgrade his image for national TV audiences.

    The reality is that the TV networks are shying away from Toya's new show because neither she nor Mickey have enough star power. In other words, the show would quickly tank in the ratings. Toya's last reality show was cancelled due to poor TV ratings.

    Beyonce performs live

    More unflattering photos of Beyonce hit the Internet over the weekend. These photos were not taken by Beyonce's approved photog who supplies images to the media. These photos were taken by a paparazzi in Milan who somehow sneaked his professional camera equipment into the venue in Milan where Beyonce performed on Saturday, May 18.

    If you recall, Beyonce went ballistic when unflattering photos of her performing during the Super Bowl halftime were published on numerous websites in January. Beyonce's PR flack emailed the websites to remove the pictures, which resulted in one of the best viral memes of the year.

    Solange Knowles wearing Marni

    The sibling rivalry between Solange and her big sister Beyonce must be fierce. Beyonce isn't finding ways to get all of this attention for nothing. She probably feels insecure because her little sister is far and away more fashionable and stylish than she is. Beyonce puts forth a lot of effort to look stylish. But Solange's style is effortless even when she's dressed casually. Solange is featured in yet another fashion layout, this time for the June 2013 issue of InStyle magazine.

    Beyonce Finally Combs Blue Ivy's Hair

    It's evident from Beyonce's latest posting on her personal website that she reads the blogs.

    Earlier today, Beyonce posted an image of her daughter Blue Ivy's hair neatly brushed and plaited. The 16-month-old girl is also wearing a dress for the first time in her life.

    Beyonce obviously read all the negative comments about her daughter's nappy hair and her androgynous appearance. Yes, it's hard for a mother to read such things about her daughter, but sometimes a little negativity does bring about a positive outcome. Blue Ivy looks like a normal -- though overindulged -- little girl.
