The Good Samaritan who "found" Lady Gaga's two French bulldogs still hasn't received her $500,000 reward because cops don't believe her story.

On Feb. 24, two thugs shot Gaga's dog walker, Ryan Fischer, and stole her bulldogs, Koji and Gustav. A third dog, Miss Asia, managed to escape and was found by police.

Lady Gaga was on location in Rome, Italy filming a movie when the crime occurred. She is pictured outside her Rome hotel days after the incident.

Fischer, 30, has recovered from his injuries. Gaga offered $500,000 for the safe return of her dogs, "no questions asked."

But the Los Angeles Police Department told the pop star not to pay out the reward until the woman has been cleared of her involvement in the crime.

Investigators are looking into whether the woman was involved in the dognapping, which may have been part of a gang initiation.

The robbery was caught on surveillance camera. The two dognappers are still at large. No arrests have been made.

More women have come forward alleging sexual assault and kidnapping by Atlanta power couple T.I. and Tiny.

Six more women have come forward, in addition to the eight women and three men being represented by attorney Tyrone A. Blackburn.

Blackburn sent letters to federal prosecutors in two states requesting criminal charges be filed in Georgia and California.

So far, there have been no criminal charges filed. But T.I. and Tiny, real names Clifford and Tameka, have retained a high-powered law firm to defend them just in case.

"If I was a prosecutor, I'd have brought charges already," Blackburn wrote in the letter.

Blackburn said the women and men are unaware of each other. They accused T.I, and Tiny of forcing them to ingest illegal narcotics, kidnapping, threats and false imprisonment.

A 22-year-old woman who met the couple when she worked at T.I.'s Grand Hustle Studio as a teenager, claims she was drugged and given alcohol by the couple when she was 17.

She said the drink and two pills made her "hot and and sweaty [and she] began hallucinating and felt like she was floating."

She says she blacked out and woke up "naked on a bed... bleeding from her vagina. She also felt discomfort in her anus."

The next day, she was taken home by an employee who told her she needed to learn to shut up.

A Minneapolis judge has delayed the start of the trial for former police officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.

The murder trial, which was set to begin Monday, will start on Tuesday morning with the selection of jurors, according to MSN.com.

Judge Peter Cahill of the Hennepin County district court delayed the trial to mull over whether to reinstate the third-degree murder charge against Chauvin.

But, according to ABC News, Judge Cahill said he does not have jurisdiction to rule on whether the third-degree murder charge should be reinstated.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Floyd during a traffic stop in May 2020.

A viral video that showed Chauvin pressing his knee into Floyd's neck as he took his last breath sparked weeks of rioting, looting and unrest in Minneapolis and other Democratic stronghold states.

Black Lives Matter has been protesting outside the courthouse for days.

Minneapolis and Hennepin County officials spent at least $1 million erecting fences topped with barbed wire and other barricades around the courthouse and City Hall buildings.

BLM is calling for the quick conviction of Chauvin. One speaker led BLM in chants: "The whole world is watching!"

Chivalry isn't dead in Brazil -- as one hapless crook found out when he snatched a woman's cellphone.

After snatching the cellphone, the hapless mugger tried to flee on a bicycle. But he was run over by a motorist who saw the attempted robbery.

The mugger, who was only stunned by the vehicle, got up and tried to flee on foot. But the woman and the driver gave chase.

Eventually, more men joined in the chase and cornered the guy. They began kicking and punching him as he pleaded for mercy.

After the severe beatdown in the street the Good Samaritans got the cellphone back and returned it to its rightful owner.

The entire incident and its brutal aftermath were captured on surveillance cameras positioned around the city.

If you are a petty crook who targets women, don't do it in Brazil: REAL men reside there. You might get hurt or killed.

A rapper who was booked to perform at an NBA All-Star Game event this weekend in Atlanta was killed in a drive-by shooting along I-85, police say.

Houston's Chucky Trill, best known for his rap single "Keisha," was shot in the head while driving on I-85 near Jimmy Carter Blvd around 3 a.m. Friday.

Police responding to a report of shots fired found the gunshot victim in a stopped car alongside I-85.

Trill, real name Corey Detiege, 33, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Passengers in Trill's vehicle were not injured. They could not describe the suspect or the suspect's vehicle, police tell 11Alive.

The aspiring rapper was scheduled to perform at one of the many NBA All-Star weekend events in Atlanta, his manager with Boneafide Entertainment told 11Alive.

Thousands of people have descended on Atlanta to take part in the NBA All-Star weekend festivities.

The NBA All-Star Game at State Farm Arena is closed to the public due to Covid, but that hasn't deterred visitors who ignored Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms's pleas to stay home.

"This pandemic has been going on for a year now. People are tired of staying in the house," NBA fan Kevin Hines told Channel 2's Michael Seiden.

Hines, who is visiting from New Jersey, said he is excited to attend this weekend's parties. "It's all on the internet. Parties everywhere. Celebrities. All the celebrities are down here."

Police agencies and Fulton County's top prosecutor have issued stern warnings to out-of-town visitors, according to the AJC.

"You decide to come here and commit crimes, we will give you a free ride and assist with accommodations at the Fulton County Sheriff's Office Jail at 901 Rice Street," the South Fulton Police Department posted on social media. "Don't come here to fight, take other people's things, or drive under the influence."

Fani Willis, Fulton County's district attorney, wrote on Facebook: "If you come to Atlanta for All-Star Weekend and commit an act of violence, please plan to stay. 901 Rice Street awaits you."

Atlanta Police Department officers will work 12-hour shifts throughout the weekend, according to Deputy Chief Michael O'Connor.

Officers will set up road blocks near NBA All-Star events and will be on the lookout for drunk drivers, street racers and anyone hosting illegal house parties.

Dallas County Jail

Dallas' former police chief says a killer cop was kept on the police force for over a year so he wouldn't be tipped off that he was under investigation for a double murder.

Former Officer Bryan Riser was arrested Thursday and booked into the Dallas County Jail where he is being held on $5 million bail.

Riser is accused of ordering the kidnapping and murders of two people, 31-year-old Liza Saenz and Albert Douglas, 61, in separate incidents in 2017.

Former Police Chief U. Renee Hall, who resigned from the department in 2020, explained why Riser continued patrolling for more than a year.

"Doing anything different, we may not have been able to bring justice to the families," she said.

Dallas' new police chief, Eddie Garcia, said an informant came forward with a tip that Riser ordered the killings.

Garcia said investigators are still trying to determine the motives.

Three men are charged with the murders. They are currently serving life in prison.

The affidavit, obtained by ABC News, states that Riser told one of the killers that Saenz was a police informant.

Johnson was arrested in Indianapolis on December 4 and extradited to Michigan this week, WDIV reported.

He was charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of felony firearm possession.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy joined forces with the Fair Michigan Justice Project, an organization that helps law enforcement investigate crimes against the LGBT+ community.

Rapper DaBaby is in legal trouble again. A 64-year-old homeowner filed a lawsuit against the troubled rapper after he was beaten and had a tooth knocked out during a music video shoot at his rental home.

An associate of Dababy is accused of beating up 64-year-old homeowner Gary Pagar after he showed up at his rental property to stop the rapper's music video shoot on December 2nd.

Pagar agreed to rent his mansion to DaBaby for "a private vacation," but he accused the rapper of violating the terms of the rental agreement by having more than 40 people at the mansion and using the property to shoot a music video with a full commercial film crew.

Pagar was monitoring his rental home via surveillance cameras when he spotted the rapper filming a music video on his property.

According to BACKGRID, the lawsuit claims that DaBaby and his associates "beat, punched, spat on, threatened, shoved, and robbed Mr Pagar" at his LA home on December 2, 2020.

Among the guests at the house was YouTube star-turned-boxer Jake Paul. Video of the confrontation shows one of Dababy's associates identified as DOE 1 throwing Pagar to the ground without warning as he walked up his driveway and punching him.

Jake Paul, who is believed to have been participating in the video, can be seen observing the fracas in a red convertible Ferrari a few feet away.

DaBaby, who was a passenger in the Ferrari, is seen standing outside the car while watching the beatdown.

DaBaby and his artist, Stunna 4 Vegas, eventually pulled the thug off of Pagar, but only so they could continue to "taunt, threaten and punch Pagar" himself, according to court documents.

DaBaby is accused of stealing Pagar's cellphone by force, chasing him into the house and threatening him to not call the police and punching him.

Pagar lost a tooth as a result of the attack. When the group was told that police were on their way, they "fled the scene leaving behind a damaged house and stealing valuable kitchenware as they left."

According to the documents, the rental was agreed at a total fee of $43,706. Pagar is suing for $117,910.48 to include damages to the property, excessive trash, broken foyer sculpture, stolen iPhone and various damages to upholstery and floor.

No charges have been filed.

Below are clips from the music video filmed inside the rental home.

When no one came forward, police released surveillance video that shows Sidaya walking behind a woman about 4 blocks away from where Sidaya was found on the corner.

The entertainment industry is following the T.I. and Tiny sex scandal with intense interest. Blogs are even digging up old stories about the couple's proclivities for threesomes.

Everyone has a story to tell about their own drug-fueled encounters with the horny couple.

If you recall, back in 2017, Rob Kardashian got into it with T.I. on Instagram for commenting on his parenting skills.

Rob, 33, claimed the rapper enjoyed a threesome with Tiny and Rob's ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, 32.

"Since TI wanna chime in on business that don't concern him let's talk about the threesome you had with Chyna and your baby mama Tiny. Don't speak on my daughter when u having threesomes with young Chy and Tiny ::: and I put that on my daughters life since u wanna speak on my daughter,,, damn shame. Chyna told me everything about your threesomes with you and her and Tiny. U got no moves bro ;;; Correction ::: TI paid Chyna to have sex with Tiny and him."

T.I., 40, was eager to respond to Rob's accusation when TMZ caught up with him at Los Angeles International Airport.

"Don't tell women's business. That's bad. That's very, very bad," said the father of seven.

"Poor character. Flawed, you know what I mean? If a woman trusted you and confided in you with secrets and stuff like that, you don't ever let that -- you don't do that. Secrets are sacred, you don't do that. That's a whole other level of f---boy s--t right there."

It's an open secret that Blac Chyna was T.I. and Tiny's favorite dancer at King of Diamonds strip club back in 2013.

T.I. and his wife Tiny, real name Tameka Harris, 45, are accused of drugging and sexually assaulting at least 30 women over the span of nearly two decades.

The fallout from the allegations has demolished the couple's careers. VH1 canceled their reality TV show T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle and Disney reportedly fired T.I. from the Ant-Man 3 movie.
