Cops arrest bouncer

Ft. Lauderdale police arrested a bouncer after a 15-second Instagram video showed him stomping a bar patron outside Dirty Blondes Sports Bar.

Dirty Blondes bouncer Arnald Thomas-Darrah, 30, (inset top) was arrested at his Oakland Park home on Sunday after the victim, Alex Coelho, 29, (inset bottom) filed a police report on Friday -- a week after the incident happened.

Police also obtained a warrant for another Dirty Blondes bouncer, Jovan Ralfhel Dean, 35. Another man, David Parker, 27, was allegedly punched by Dean.

Coelho was arrested after the fracas and charged with battery on a police officer and disorderly conduct. According to Officer Marc Decarlo, Coelho approached him and shoved him in the chest. Coelho's drinking buddy, Parker, was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Riley Cooper

A sports blogger says suspended Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper will never suit up in a NFL uniform again. Cooper, 25, is still feeling the fallout from that N-bomb he dropped during a Kenny Chesney concert last week.

Jay Graves of Baarbershopsports.net theorizes that Cooper is done in the NFL because the balance of power flows from the locker room not from the Philadelphia Eagles front office.

Volatile rapper 50 Cent is due in court today to answer to a domestic abuse charge. Fiddy was arrested in June and charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and trashing her Toluca Lake condo.

Tawana Brawley

Tawana Brawley was a fast 15-year-old being raised by a single mother when she became the center of a civil rights firestorm in 1987. Brawley, of Wappingers Falls, New York, accused six white men -- including police officers -- of raping her.

Brawley, who had been staying with a boyfriend for four days, claimed the white men smeared her with feces and wrote racial slurs on her body before leaving her partially naked in a dumpster. In 1988, a NY grand jury released its report calling Brawley a liar.

Louis Bardo plays with dolls

Actress Sandra Bullock, 49, was spotted picking up her adopted son Louis Bardo from Summer camp on Friday. The Oscar-winning actress has joined the gender-neutral bandwagon, allowing her toddler to play with a baby doll. The doll was dressed in a pink jumper with a matching pink bonnet.

Gender neutral folks believe their children will benefit from not being pigeon-holed into a gender specific role. Like most popular fads that come and go, the gender neutrality fad has no intrinsic value or benefit in child development.

Chris Brown

Troubled singer Chris Brown was spotted smoking a cigarette on the set of his latest music video for his single "Love More" in Los Angeles, Calif., today. Brown, 24, was accompanied by a posse of hard legs, including his faithful manager, Bu Thiam, 3rd from left. Meanwhile, the NY Post reports that a NY judge quietly signed an order to temporarily shutter a nightclub where Brown and rapper Drake brawled last year. The W.i.P. and its sister club Greenhouse on Varick Street will be shut down for 10 days starting September 1. An attorney for the club — co-owned by NBA guard Larry Hughes -- argued that a temporary shutdown would put his client "out of business." The club owners are also ordered to pay $10,000 in fines. The bottle throwing brawl sparked at least half a dozen lawsuits.

Rave-Symone and AzMarie Livingston

Rave-Symone and AzMarie Livingston

Former child star Raven-Symoné is planning to walk down the aisle with her girlfriend.

Earlier today, the “Cosby” kid finally came out on Twitter.com by tweeting: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you."

No one was surprised that Raven finally admitted her sexuality. The National Enquirer outed her and "America's Top Model" contestant AzMarie last year. The tabloid said Raven-Symoné, 27, was planning to wed AzMarie, 24, in NYC, where the couple shacked up in her $11,000-a-month apartment.

But knowing lesbians like I do, Raven-Symoné and AzMarie may have split up by now. Lesbians and gay men usually have unstable relationships.

    Riley Cooper suspended

    This Riley Cooper story has gone from laughable to ludicrous. The 25-year-old Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver was drunk when he used a racial slur at a country music concert. Cooper spazzed out at a black security guard who wouldn't let him backstage to meet Kenny Chesney. "I'll fight every nigger in here," Cooper said.

    Normally when a redneck drops the n-word in a room full of rednecks, no one raises an eyebrow. But a concertgoer captured Riley's tirade on a cell phone and uploaded it to YouTube.

    The response from the professional football league was swift. Cooper was fined an undisclosed sum of money, and he was forced to apologize more than once.

    But that wasn't enough. In a tweet posted today, the Eagles front office announced that Cooper will be suspended from "all team activities" so he can "seek counseling."

    4 Tons of Quarters

    A retired Illinois foot surgeon paid back a court ordered $500,000 in insurance money the unconventional way -- in quarters that weighed 4 tons.

    Roger Herrin was awarded $1.6 million in personal insurance compensation when his teenage son, Michael Herrin, was killed in a Jeep crash in 2001. Michael, 15, was the only passenger killed in the crash. Three survivors who were also in the Jeep sued Roger Herrin who collected the bulk of an additional $800,000 insurance policy, since his son was the only one killed.

    After a decades long court battle, Herrin was ordered to pay back $500,000 of the $800,000 to the survivors who complained that he received too large a cut of the insurance proceeds.

    "I've had 10 years to think about this a little bit, and I'm very, very bitter at this ruling," he said. "It's wrong, and everybody knows it's wrong."

    TEXT

    I usually don't pay attention to celebrity baby birth certificates, but Prince George is no run of the mill celebrity baby. The future King of England is third in line to the throne.

    Boy George's official birth certificate was filled out by hand, and spells out his complete name: His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. The infant's address is listed as simply "Kensington Palace, London 4PU." George's father -- His Royal Highness Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis Duke of Cambridge -- signed the document: "William". His occupation is listed as "Prince of the United Kingdom". George's mother, Kate Middleton of Reading, is listed as "Princess."

Newly blond Lovato, 20, was less chatty, saying she simply didn't want to comment. "There's no reason for me to talk about his person life."

    Obama Criticizes Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

    President Obama doesn't care for the influence that narcissistic celebrities have on today's youth. In a recent interview with Amazon.com, Obama said negative influences such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West didn't distract him from his pursuit of the American dream when he was a kid. Obama blamed today's confluence of narcissistic, self-obssessed traits on the influence of Kim and Kanye and reality TV shows.

    Woman falls 17 floors

    A former editor for Cosmopolitan magazine fell to her death from her balcony while taking a cigarette break early this morning, the NY Post reports.

    35-year-old Jennifer Rosoff was on her first date with a male friend when they went on the balcony of her 57th Street high rise apartment to share a cigarette. The balcony railing apparently gave way as she leaned against it, sending Rosoff plunging 17 floors to her death. The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.

    Police found Rosoff's body atop construction scaffolding in the street below her apartment. Neighbor Sara Shubert told the NY Post she heard Rosoff's body land.

    "I heard the thud last night. It was as loud as a car crash. It sounded like a 200 lb punch,” said Shubert, an eight-year resident of the luxury building.

    Ariel Castro sentenced to life

    Ohio kidnapper Ariel Castro was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for kidnapping three women and holding them captive for up to 11 years. Referring to himself as a victim, Castro said, "I believe I'm a porn addict. I'm not a violent person, I just kept them there without being able to leave."

    Castro said he never forced himself on the women, and that at times the women asked him for sex. He said there was always "harmony in the home."

    Judge Michael Russo told Castro that it's likely that nobody else in the country agrees that there was harmony inside that home.

    Castro sat attentively as his first victim, Michelle Knight, addressed him in a Cleveland courtroom today. "I will overcome all this has happened, but you will face hell for eternity," said Knight, 32.

    Drake new music

    Rapper superstar Drake wrestled Jay Z's crown from him in 2012 and never looked back. Don't think Jigga isn't feeling Drake's heat. The self-professed "light skin Keith Sweat" released his 2nd single, "All Me," off his much anticipated new album, Nothing Was The Same, available Sept 17. Drake, with the help of rappers 2 Chainz and Big Sean, lets Jay Z know that he got to the top all by himself. So confident is Drake that he even let Sean outshine him on his own track -- something Jay Z would never do.

    Antwain Steward

    One thousand years from now, archaeologists studying human history will conclude that rappers were among the dumbest of all modern day Homo sapiens.

    A Virginia rapper was arrested and charged with double murder after cops heard him bragging about said murders in a rap song. Antwain "Twain Gotti" Steward is accused of shooting Christopher Horton, 16, and Brian Dean, 20, at their home in Newport in 2007.

    Cops originally believed the cold case was gang related -- that is, until Antwain's Facebook followers gave cops the break that they were looking for.
