Wendy Williams chastised NFL star Odell Beckham Jr for laying hands on another man's butt over the weekend.

The incident occurred during a post-game celebration in LSU's locker room after winning the national title at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night. The Louisiana native is an LSU alumni.

When Beckham spotted an officer bending over, he stared intently at the cop's buttocks before delivering a hard slap on the cop's butt.

The New Orleans Police Department issued an arrest warrant for Beckham for "simple assault" on Thursday.

"You should've known better," said Williams, 55, on Friday's episode of her daytime talk show.

"Odell at 27 years old, you're old enough to understand political correctness in the time we live in now. You can't just slap people on the booty. He probably knows it's not right for a man to a woman or a woman to a man, but you can't even do that locker room thing. That cop wasn't playing that."

Wendy continued: "You're lucky you only got battery. What if he filed for sexual assault? ... Odell, come on, you can't play that clown mess!"

Nola.com reports that a judge declined to approve an initial warrant because it was for misdemeanor sexual battery. The judge later approved an amended warrant for simple battery.

A convicted sex offender has been charged with burying an Alabama woman who went missing from a bar after texting a friend that she was in trouble.

Paighton Houston's body was found wrapped in fabric and buried in a shallow grave behind a dilapidated house in Hueytown, Alabama, days after she went missing from a country music bar.

Convicted sex offender Fredrick Hampton, 50, was charged with abuse of a corpse. A warrant has been issued for his arrest but he has not been charged with her death.

Houston, 29, was last seen on Dec. 20 at Tin Roof live music bar in the 2700 block of Seventh Avenue South in Birmingham's Lakeview District. She arrived at the bar earlier that night with a co-worker.

After leaving the bar willingly with two Black men, Houston texted her co-worker to say she felt "in trouble."

According to Houston's mother, Paighton texted "if I call answer, I don't know these people and I feel in trouble."

Trussville police say Houston died the day after she was last seen at the bar.

A tip led investigators to the empty house on Chapel Hill Drive in Hueytown.

After sifting through a mound of trash in a "muddy, nasty" backyard, police discovered the shallow grave and unearthed Houston's "intact" body.

A coroner has not yet determined the cause and manner of Houston's death. They are awaiting additional testing, including toxicology results. There was no physical trauma to her body.

A GoFundMe account raised over $18,000 in donations.

Cell phone video shows Beckham staring intently at the officer's buttocks before delivering the butt slap.

The New Orleans Police Department issued the arrest warrant against the star receiver for inappropriately touching the heterosexual officer.

Beckham's criminal charge comes a month after Thomas Galloway, 43, was arrested for slapping a female reporter on the butt during a live TV news broadcast.

The Louisiana native also made headlines when he appeared to hand out cash to LSU players on the sideline during the game.

NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from accepting cash or goods from sports agents or college alumni. Beckham was a standout wide receiver at LSU. His father, Odell Beckham Sr., was a running back at LSU in the 1990s.

Beckham, 27, has battled homosexual rumors since being drafted in the 1st round by the NY Giants in 2014.

Damon Dash was arrested in New York on Wednesday, Nov. 20, after racking up more than $400,000 in outstanding child support.

The 48-year-old rap mogul stayed one step ahead of the police for several years after failing to make payments to ex-girlfriend Cindy Morales, with whom he shares a son, and his former wife, designer Rachel Roy, pictured above with one of their two daughters.

Complicating the troubled mogul's financial difficulties is his fiancee, Raquel Horn (pictured), is pregnant with his fourth child.

Dash reportedly fled the Big Apple and relocated to the West Coast to avoid arrest, but he returned to NYC this week to try and clear up his legal troubles.

According to TMZ, Dash appeared in court to plead with a judge for leniency, claiming he was so broke he couldn't afford $2,400 in fees.

Dash told the court he had no income and his current business ventures were not turning a profit, according to WENN.com.

But the police were unsympathetic. They clapped the handcuffs on him as he headed into a courthouse on Wednesday to settle a child support bill to Rachel Roy.

"We've been looking to arrest him since 2015," Sheriff Joseph Fucito told the New York Post's Page Six. Fucito said Dash had 2 warrants for his arrest.

The first felony warrant, relating to child support for Morales, was issued in April, 2015, while a second warrant was issued by a Bronx Family Court judge in March after Dash skipped payments to Roy.

According to TMZ, Dash was taken into custody and escorted to Brooklyn, where he handed over money for the balance of his debt. He was subsequently released from custody.

Dash rose from humble beginnings sweeping up barbershops and selling newspapers as a teenager to co-founding Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear clothing with Jay-Z as a young adult.

He earned tens of millions of dollars as a music and fashion mogul over the course of his career.
