R&B Singer August Alsina passed out and fell into the crowd of stunned women during a performance at Irving Plaza in NYC Monday night. Video taken by a concertgoer shows Alsina’s legs going limp as he fell into the crowd. Word from Alsina’s camp is the lanky 22-year-old singer hadn’t eaten after smoking too much “Knockout” — a strong Grade A++ strain of medical marijuana.
Minnesota Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman held a press conference today to announce the team’s decision to reactivate child abuser Adrian Peterson.

But he also said: “We feel strongly as an organization that this [was] disciplining a child.”
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan may have handled the body of late singer Whitney Houston who died of a drug overdose on February 11, 2012, in Beverly Hills, CA.

Disgraced Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and the NFL Players Association plan to appeal his NFL suspension Tuesday.

Former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Houston authorities early Saturday morning. On Friday a grand jury indicted Peterson on charges of whipping his 4-year-old son with a tree branch. Peterson, 29, was booked into jail at 1 a.m. Saturday and released 30 minutes later on $15,000 bond. Houston police released this mugshot of an arrogant Peterson smiling as if he didn’t have a care in the world.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson was “deactivated” (read: suspended) after he was indicted for viciously beating his 4-year-son with a switch. Peterson’s weak excuse was that he disciplined his son in the manner which he was raised.
The sad irony is Peterson’s secret Love child was beaten to death in October by his mother’s boyfriend.
Joseph Patterson, 27, was arrested and charged in that case.
