The state of New Jersey has opened an investigation into transracial activist Shaun King.

According to tweets by journalist Ernest Owens on Tuesday, King is under investigation by the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General, Division of Consumer Affairs inquiring about "issues involving purchases."

According to Owens, the investigation focuses on a clothing line that sells garments featuring photos of King.

Prices range from $65 for a t-shirt to $165 for a hoodie featuring photos of King smoking a cigarette.

Owens shared messages from consumers contacted by an investigator asking consumers to call him if they "had, or at least have heard of, issues involving purchases from the website, www.arealone.com."

Owens tweeted:

Owens added: "No, I have not given Shaun King a dime of my money. But those consumers who have had problems might reconsider."

King was previously criticized for allegedly using donated Black Lives Matter funds to purchase a house and a $40,000 purebred dog.

King is best known for impersonating a Black man while marketing himself as a social justice activist and raising millions of dollars - funds that are unaccounted for.

The New York Attorney General has launched an investigation into 4chan, 8chan, Twitch, Discord, and other forums in the aftermath of the Buffalo massacre.

The investigation will focus on the forums and other online resources that the shooter discussed in his 180-page manifesto. He specifically mentioned 4chan in his manifesto and he live-streamed his shooting rampage on Twitch.

The shooter said he hated Black people and he was outraged over the so-called "white replacement" theory. He wrote the n-word on his assault rifle. All 10 victims are Black or mixed race.

The forums spew hateful messages and imagery, but the racist posts are protected under free speech laws.

However, the AG referred to a New York law that allows her office to investigate matters concerning public peace, public safety, and public justice and to subpoena witnesses and compel the production of documents.

4chan, a notoriously racist extremist message board, has been the target of the federal government in the pass. The board has been shut down by the feds at least twice in the past.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations is looking into whether one company falsified millions of COVID tests around the country.

The FBI on Saturday raided the corporate headquarters of a nationwide chain of COVID testing sites known as the Center for COVID Control.

The company, which is headquartered in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, received $124 million from the federal government in insurance reimbursements.

"The FBI was conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity in Rolling Meadows yesterday," FBI spokesperson Siobhan Johnson told USA TODAY. Johnson works out of the FBI field office in Chicago.

She didn't say what they were searching for, but rumors are rampant on social media that millions of COVID test results were falsified at sites around the country.

Annie Thompson, a spokesperson for the Illinois Attorney General's Office, said the attorney general "is absolutely committed to protecting residents from those who attempt to profit off of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic."

Testing sites in the Bay Area and Miami were shut down After multiple news outlets reported questionable test results.

Hundreds of people complained about conflicting test results at the same testing site on the same day in the Bay Area.

At its peak, the company collected more than 80,000 tests per day, according to Yahoo! News.

Meanwhile, Akbar Syed and his wife, Aleya Siyaj, the couple who own the company, flaunted their newfound wealth on social media.

Yahoo News profiled Akbar and Aleya in an article titled "How a wedding photographer and a donut shop owner got millions in a COVID testing operation now under investigation."

On their now deleted social media pages, Syed, 35, and Aleya, 29, shared photos of two Lamborghinis, a Ferrari Enzo and their lavish $1.36 million mansion in Saint Charles, Il.

The couple's mansion is seen in this screen capture from a YouTube video.

"Countach added to my collection," Syed wrote in the caption of photo showing a Lamborgini being offloaded from a truck.

"Oil money?" a user asked.

No, "COVID money," Syed responded.

The company claimed it uses Doctors Clinical Lab to run its tests. But Doctors Clinical Lab is registered at the same address as Center for COVID Control.

The feds are investigating whether the COVID testing lab even exists.

The tweet comes after it was reported in November that Las Vegas authorities were investigating rape allegations against the promiscuous singer.

The alleged sex assault occurred at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas resort casino and hotel. Trey reportedly invited a group of female fans back to his hotel room from Drais Nightlub after celebrating his 37th birthday.

Pray for Trey if you're a fan. He's about to be R. Kelly'd.

Blac Chyna will not face charges for allegedly holding a woman in a hotel room against her will.

Sacramento police investigated a report by a woman who said she was "held hostage" by Chyna in a hotel room at the Sacramento Sheraton Grand hotel on Nov. 27. The woman also claimed there was drugs present and Chyna was high on cocaine.

Sacramento Police told The Sun and Page Six that officers were made aware of a disturbance at the hotel and that "no injuries were reported."

Chyna's attorney said video evidence cleared the 33-year-old reality TV star of any wrongdoing.

"This story is false," Chyna's attorney said in a statement to Fox News Digital.

"This latest false accusation of criminal conduct is just the most recent in a long line of false accusations against Blac Chyna.

"We are very thankful that video evidence has allowed us to disprove past false allegations of assault & battery by her then fiancé Rob Kardashian, a false accusation of assault with a deadly weapon, and now this false charge. The video being circulated on social media shows that Blac Chyna did not hold anyone against their will."

He hinted that a slander lawsuit might be in the works.

"We are hopeful that one day people will stop falsely accusing Blac Chyna of criminal conduct. Until that day, we will continue to disprove these false allegations to law enforcement and in the courtroom, if necessary."

The controversy didn't affect Chyna's bookings. On Tuesday, the popular influencer attended the launch press event announcing Grammy-Winner Paula Abdul as celebrity judge for upcoming Uplive WorldStage Global Singing Competition in Hollywood, California.

On Saturday, Chyna spoke to women at the L.A. Women's Expo in Los Angeles, CA.

The Washington D.C. native wore white leggings, a white top with a crocodile corset and a white crocodile jacket.

During her appearance, Chyna chatted with KTLA anchor Lynette Romero. The two women posed for photos onstage afterwards. Organizers said they had no plans to cancel Chyna's appearance amid the allegations.

Chyna is mom to 5-year-old daughter Dream with Rob Kardashian, 34, and son King Cairo Stevenson, 9, by rapper Tyga, 32.

She briefly dated rapper Playboi Carti, rapper YBN Almighty Jay, P. J. Tucker, Shad Moss, and aspiring rapper Kid Buu.

A criminal investigation is currently underway at a franchise Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant in Missouri where a racist sign was posted in the window.

The sign announced the restaurant was under new management and it reserves the "right to refuse service to white people."

"This restaurant is under new management and will reserve the right to refuse service to white people.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Signed, General Manager, Mason."

Local news reporter Russell Kinsaul took a photo of the sign and posted it on his Facebook page, where it spread quickly.

White customers are scarcely seen in Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurants which primarily serve Black communities.

After the sign went viral, it was removed from the window and replaced with another sign that read: "Sorry For The Inconvenience. We’re Closed For The Day We Will Be Back Tomorrow."

Popeyes corporate office issued a statement that read:

"We have been made aware of the situation and are investigating the matter immediately. This type of behavior does not align with our brand values and we take such allegations very seriously. The franchise is cooperating with local authorities regarding this ongoing investigation."

According to Fox affiliate KTVI-TV in St. Louis, local police believe someone may have affixed the sign to the window "unbeknownst to the business".

Los Angeles prosecutors are considering filing criminal charges against drug dealers responsible for supplying the drugs that contributed to the death of Bobby Brown, Jr.

A toxicology report shows Bobby Brown, Jr. died from an overdose of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol.

The 28-year-old son of R&B singer Bobby Brown and Kim Ward was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home on November 18, 2020.

MediaPunch / BACKGRID

Illegal narcotics in Bobby Jr.'s system prompted his parents to demand a criminal investigation into how Bobby Jr. obtained the drugs.

Specific details about the case have not been released, but according to TMZ, authorities became involved after learning certain drug dealers are known to cut with powerful painkiller fentanyl to get users hooked.

Bobby, Jr. is the second child of the former New Edition singer to die from a drug overdose.

Brown also lost his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, in July, 2015, six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her Atlanta, Georgia home.

Bobbi Kristina also had toxic levels of alcohol and cocaine in her system.

Bobbi Kristina's mother, Brown's ex-wife Whitney Houston, died from accidental drowning following a drug overdose in February 2012.

Broncos linebacker Von Miller is under criminal investigation by police in a Denver suburb, the Seattle Times reports.

Parker Police Department spokesman Josh Hans confirmed an investigation is underway, but he declined to release the details. Hans wrote in an email, "We're not commenting on nature of the allegations. We haven't completed the investigation... "if the investigation determines a crime has occurred, charges will be submitted to the DA's Office for their review."

Miller, 31, has not been charged with any crimes.

The Broncos released a statement on Friday, saying they were "aware of an investigation involving Von Miller and are in the process of gathering more information."

Miller missed the 2020 season with an ankle injury he suffered just before the opener.

Miller is due $17.5 million in the final year of his seven-year, $114 million contact.

In 2016, Miller sued a former sex partner to block the sale of a sex tape. The tape was recorded while the Super Bowl MVP vacationed in Mexico with the accuser. A judge blocked the sale and distribution of the sex tape.

Miller is rumored to have dated singer K. Michelle.

What Corona? A horny nurse risked everything to have noisy sex with a Covid-19 patient in a hospital bathroom, according to the NY Post.

With a 99.9% survival rate for Covid-19, the nurse apparently wasn't concerned about the health risks.

News of the incident at a Jakarta hospital went viral Friday, Dec. 25, after the patient bragged on Twitter about his sexual tryst with a male nurse.

"It is true that there has been a suspected incident of a same-sex relationship between a health worker and a COVID-19 patient at the Wisma Atlet Emergency Hospital," said Asep Gunawan of the National Nurses Association.

The NY Post reports that the patient tweeted a photo of the nurse's PPE on the hospital room floor as the two went at it.

The hospital administration was understandably humiliated. The nurse was suspended and there may be criminal charges.

"This case has been transferred to the Central Jakarta Police. We have secured the health worker to become a witness and asked for further information," said Lt. Col. Arh Herwin of the Regional Military Command.

Nurse and patient were tested for Covid-19. The patient is still positive and the nurse is negative.

If convicted, both men face up to 10 years in prison.

The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation into Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, for cleaning out one of their corporate accounts.

Nicole is being investigated by the LAPD for alleged embezzlement, sources close to the case tell TMZ.

Dre's business partner, Larry Chatman, recently filed a police report, claiming Nicole, 50, withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars from their business account without authorization.

Larry had previously alleged similar allegations in legal letters fired off to Nicole's attorneys in the past few weeks, and the LAPD launched an investigation into the case.

Phil Lewis/WENN.com

In the report to the LAPD, Dre's team claims Nicole cleaned out a corporate account, stealing $385,029 from the label she co-owned with Dre.

As TMZ previously reported, Dre, 55, called out Nicole for making 2 bank withdrawals -- which totaled the $385k -- after filing for divorce. Nicole claims she had a right to withdraw the cash because her name was on the corporate account.

WENN

Nicole, pictured during happier times with Dre, could face up to 20 years in prison if she is convicted of embezzling funds from the now defunct business.

Nicole's legal team tells TMZ Larry's claims against her are nothing but a smear attempt and a PR stunt because, so far, she is losing the court battle. Her attorneys maintain she's done nothing wrong.

The FBI is asking parents in the Illinois area and beyond to check their sons's cell phones for evidence of communications with Netflix star Jerry Harris.

Harris, star of Netflix's cheerleading docuseries "Cheer," was arrested and charged with production of child p0rnography.

Harris, 21, admitted to soliciting child p0rn from at least 10 children. He also confessed to having sex with a 15-year-old boy at a cheerleading event last year.

None those victims have come forward or contacted law enforcement about their communications with Harris.

The FBI launched an investigation after the mother of 14-year-old twin boys found explicit text messages from Harris on their phones.

The FBI has opened a portal for victims or parents of victims to identify themselves by completing a questionnaire.

The responses are voluntary but some of the information may be used in the investigation. All identities of victims will be kept confidential.

Victims may be eligible for certain services, financial restitution and rights under federal and/or state law.

Jerry Harris, star of Netflix's cheerleading docuseries "Cheer," was arrested Thursday and charged with production of child p0rnography three days after FBI agents removed bags of evidence from his Naperville, Illinois home.

The 21-year-old male cheerleader was the subject of a federal investigation after the mom of 14-year-old twin boys, Charlie and Sam, found sexually explicit texts and alerted Varsity Brands, who, in turn, notified police.

The twins are suing Harris over sexual exploitation harassment that began when they were just 13. The brothers filed separate lawsuits against Harris this week, accusing the flamboyant star of harassing them at cheer competitions.

It was reported on Monday that the flamboyant cheerleader was under investigation amid allegations he "solicited sexually explicit photos and sex from a minor".

The criminal complaint alleges Harris requested nude photos from the boys.

In one Snapchat exchange, Harris asked one of the twins, "Would you ever want to****." The boy interpreted the message as a sex act.

In another message, one of the boys sent Harris a photo of himself and Harris allegedly responded: "Do it naked and take a video."

In court documents, the siblings, who are Caucasian, alleged they befriended Harris, who is Black, during a cheer competition in 2018, and were "star struck" by him.

Following steamy text messages from Harris requesting nude photos from the boys, they met up with Harris in "secluded locations at various competitions".

After their mother found out about the sexually explicit messages, she reported him to cheerleading organization Varsity Brands, who contacted police.

Harris, who was 19 at the time of the incidents, worked for Varsity at a cheer camp last year.

"As a result of the recent allegation, we have barred this person from having any affiliation with Varsity Brands or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, now and in the future," wrote Varsity's Chief Legal Officer Burton Brillhart in letters to police in Florida and Texas.

Since Cheer premiered in January, Harris has covered the Oscars red carpet for Ellen DeGeneres, signed endorsement deals with Schmidt's deodorant, Panera Bread and American Eagle and racked up over a million followers on Instagram.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden held a chat with Harris weeks before investigators raided Harris's home.

Harris was part of Biden's plan to help "win back the internet."

"If the same percentage of young blacks turned out and registered to vote as the average voter, you'd increase voting by several million people, you could change the outcome of elections," Biden told Harris.

During a recent episode of the Variety and iHeart podcast "The Big Ticket," Harris, who was referred to as a "gay icon," said his late mom was watching over him.

"I feel like she's very, very happy and excited for everything that's been going on, and she's really loving it," said Harris, whose mother died of lung cancer when he was 16. "I know she's telling me to always stay humble, because she doesn't want to see me get a big head."

Harris met his cheerleading inspiration, Gabrielle Union, last month.

Deutsche Bank turned over President Trump's financial records to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance through a subpoena filed last year.

On Wednesday, New York AG Letitia James said she will make a "major national announcement" at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6.

Prosecutors have pored over Trump's financial records after the bank complied with the subpoena, the New York Times reports.

Vance and James, both Democrats, are investigating potential crimes in the U.S. president's financial dealings. Trump obtained loans from Deutsche Bank.

Vance launched an investigation into Trump's financial dealings last year after his former attorney, Michael Cohen, told Congress the president had a practice of misleading business associates and tax officials by undervaluing his assets.

As part of the investigation, Vance asked Trump's accounting firm to turn over 8 years of his tax returns, but they refused.

The U.S. Supreme Court ordered the tax returns released, but Trump's lawyers filed an appeal that will delay the release of the tax returns for at least another year.

Trump didn't seem concerned on Monday. "This is just a continuation of the witch hunt," he told reporters.

"It's Democrat stuff they failed with Mueller they failed with everything. They failed at every stage of the game. Even before I got in this was starting with the Mueller deal. Mueller started a little bit after," Trump said, correcting himself.

"It's a terrible thing that they do. It's really a terrible thing. The witch hunt has gone on long enough," he said.

The Mesa City Police Department has opened an investigation into the death of Gary Lenius, the Arizona man whose wife claims he died after drinking Chloroquine to ward off the coronavirus.

Lenius's wife, Wanda, claims she served him a cocktail of a soda beverage and fish tank cleaner in a bungled attempt to ward off the coronavirus after hearing President Trump praise the drug as a Covid-19 cure.

Lenius, 68, died on March 22. His wife told several media outlets that both she and her husband consumed the cocktail after hearing Trump praise Chloroquine as a Covid-19 cure during a press briefing in March.

But police are suspicious that Lenius's death might be a homicide.

"As this is an active investigation, I cannot go into any details at this time regarding the case," said Detective Teresa Galder, the homicide detective handling the case.

Initial reports suggested the couple listened to Trump, and then "mindlessly" dank fish tank cleaner containing Chloroquine.

But friends of the couple said Lenius would not knowingly drink fish tank cleaner. They described Lenius as an "intelligent, levelheaded retired engineer" who had a troubled marriage that included a previous assault charge against his wife. She was ultimately found not guilty of assaulting him.

A source told The Washington Free Beacon that Wanda "would constantly berate Gary in public... Everyone was embarrassed for him, but he outwardly did not seem to care much."

The source added that Wanda often called her husband "doofus" and other derogatory insults in public.

The government stepped in after two Tennessee brothers were accused of attempting to sell 17,000 bottles of hand sanitizer for $70 each during the coronavirus outbreak.

Matt and Noah Colvin thought they would make a killing when they attempted to sell 17,000 bottles for $70 each on Amazon.com. But Amazon blocked the sale, and the brothers were stuck with 17,000 bottles that they couldn't unload.

The Colvin brothers bragged that they were making "crazy money" online. They told reporters they drove 1,000 miles all over Kentucky and Tennessee buying bottles of hand sanitizer and other anti-viral products to take advantage of the pandemic.

The government asses stiff fines and jail time to lawbreakers who enrich themselves through price gouging during shortages.

After the government stepped in and opened an investigation into price gouging, the brothers quickly donated the 17,000 bottles.

CrimeOnline.com went to the brothers' storage unit and observed the Tennessee state's attorney's office carting off the bottles and supplies. The AG's office made multiple trips to the storage unit to haul most of the bottles off.

According to NBC3, the brothers donated the remaining bottles to a local church.

Samantha Fisher of the Tennessee Attorney General's office said the brothers still face a hefty fine for price gouging. The fine might wipe out their "crazy" earnings.
