Los Angeles prosecutors say traveling nurse Nicole Linton's actions were "conscious and deliberate" in the moments before she caused a crash that killed 6 people on August 4.

Linton's lawyer had argued that she suffered an "apparent lapse of consciousness" when she ran a red light and plowed her Mercedes-Benz into cars at an intersection.

The fiery crash killed six people and injured seven others. Among the victims was a pregnant woman and her her 11-month-old son.

According to Linton's attorneys, the Houston nurse was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and struggled to find appropriate mental health treatment for years.

However, analysis of the Mercedes-Benz's on board computer shows Linton floored the gas pedal and reached a top speed of 130 mph before running the red light.

"Further analysis reveals that her speed at impact was in fact 130 mph and that she floored the gas pedal for at least the 5 seconds leading into the crash, going from 122 mph to 130 mph," the prosecutor's office stated in a court filing obtained by the LA Times on Friday.

The court documents stated Linton had "complete control over steering, maintaining the tilt of the steering wheel to keep her car traveling directly toward the crowded intersection."

"This NASCAR-worthy performance flies in the face of the notion that she was unconscious or incapacitated," the prosecutors said.

Her attorneys had asked the court to release Linton into a mental health treatment facility "where she can be monitored and treated for her illness."

Linton remains in jail on a $300,000 bond.

Kodak Black will welcome 4 bundles of joy in 2022. But he still has a ways to go to catch up to Nick Cannon, Future Hendrix, Chief Keef and other rappers who can field baseball teams with their spawn.

Kodak will welcome his fourth child with a Detroit fan who posted a photo of her growing baby bump on Instagram.

Kodak gifted her with a brand new Mercedes Benz truck with a red interior as a push gift.

The Florida rapper already has three children by three baby mamas. The babies were all born in 2022.

Kodak explained his rush to replenish the Earth in an Instagram Live interview two months ago.

"It's always understood, if I'm dealing with a person, I'm never gonna lead them on and make them feel like we're in a relationship if we not, you hear me, I already let you know what I got going on in my life and so you gon make the decision if you want to deal with me or not, I aint gotta lie to nobody."

Kodak's baby mamas are all educated, successful women who just got with him for the child support.

Maranda is a real estate agent, mother is an exotic dancer from Miami. And the third pregnant girl is attending beautician school. It isn't clear what his 4th baby mama does for a living.

Kodak might want to follow Nick's lead and get a vasectomy before the groupies start lining up.

An Atlanta man who nearly shot a teenager trying to steal his Benz explained why he let the kid go.

The incident was captured on surveillance video at a gas station in East Atlanta.

The undated video shows a 14-year-old boy casually approach the idling Mercedes and jump into the car.

Before the kid could drive off, the car's owner ran up to the vehicle with his gun drawn and the boy gave up without a fight.

The man and the boy then walk out of the camera frame.

Instagram blog @ATLuncensored shared video of the man explaining what happened afterwards.

The Macon, Georgia native said he realized the car thief was "just a kid" and he saw himself in the boy.

"I did some crazy sh*t when I was coming up, that I could'a got my head blowed off too, um when I was younger... I pretty much got him out the car, lifted his shirt up to make sure he didn't have no pistol on him, cause I was gonna take that."

The man said he talked to the youngster and advised him to get a new hustle. He said he wanted to discipline the fatherless boy.

"I wanted to whup him, you know what I'm saying. I wanted to knock his teeth out his mouth, but I didn't.

"He lived to see another day. The next person ain't gonna be as lenient as I am."

A popular radio DJ has been charged with aggravated assault following an alleged "shootout" with DeKalb police at a local nightclub early Monday.

Ronald Robinson, 39, aka DJ Beestroh, was shot in the lower abdomen by police at the Velvet Room, according to a source who witnessed the melee. Robinson is in stable condition, DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Beestroh was spinning at a listening party for rapper Rick Ross, hosted by Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs at the Velvet Room, a nightclub in the 3300 block of Chamblee Tucker Road.

Earlier today, rap mogul Jay Z explained the inspiration behind his upcoming CD Magna Carta Holy Grail. The 45-year-old rapper whose real name is Shawn Knowles-Carter, says the album's tracks were influenced by his father leaving him as a boy. Carter said the track "Jay-Z Blue" was inspired by his own childhood experience, plus the experience of being a father to his daughter Blue Ivy, who was born in 2012. "It deals with my pop leaving when I was young. He didn't teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child, or treat a woman. And I have a daughter. It's the paranoia of not being a great dad."
