It’s been over a year since many women have claimed that Bill Cosby drugged and raped them and yet there were no charges brought against the actor. That all changed today when Montgomery County, Pa’s district attorney’s office announced that they are charging him with a crime relating to a woman’s complaint filed against him. DA Kevin Steele said he was charged him with aggravated indecent assault relating to an incident that happened back in 2004. According to the PBS Newshour, “On the night in question, Cosby is alleged to have given the woman, who was associated with the Temple University women’s basketball program, wine and pills that rendered her unable to move, at which time he sexually assaulted her.”
The statute of limitation is 12 years there, so they just had a few months before time ran out.
The actor will be arraigned later today.
It will be interesting to see if he will be facing more charges from other districts, now that one of the district attorney’s charged him with the alleged crime.
UPDATE: Bill Cosby was arraigned today and bail was set at $1,000,000. He made bail and also turned over his passport as part of the arraignment. His next day in court is January 14th.
When I was kid I remember seeing Kim Richards on Different Strokes and a movie called Tuff Turf. There was something about her I thought was cool. I think because she was such a Tom Boy.
Well as we know recently she had a lot of run ins with the law and yesterday she was arrested at a Target in Van Nuys on suspicion of stealing around $600 worth of merchandise according to KTLA. Not to make light of the situation, but who knew there was $600 worth of stuff to steal from Target.
But back to being serious, I hope she gets the help she needs.
Jimmy Fallon is the swellest guy in late night television, and that means you rarely ever hear him tell a dirty joke. Well, yesterday on The Tonight Show, he told not one but two naughty jokes.
The NBC late night host played Brainstorm with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Basically The Terminator would say a word or phrase, and Jimmy would go into his brain and tell us what he meant. There were a lot laughs at the beginning of their segment, but towards the end is when it got really good. When Arnuld said, “On top of old smokey,” Fallon replied with, “Where did Willie Nelson’s wife spend their honeymoon.” That was really risky for him, but he topped that one better than Willie Nelson’s wife topped Old Smokey on their honeymoon. Last up was “Die Hard,” to which Jimmy said, “What happens if you overdose on Viagra.”
I like this side of him and I hope we see it more often!
Ottawa Police arrested a man who has been exposing himself at a local park there for two weeks. So why would I post that local crime story that happened in Canada? The guy’s name is Donald Popadick. That’s right, Popadick. I guess if you spend 62 years of your life with that last name, eventually you are going to have to live up to it. You know, like several centuries ago when people were named after their professions like GoldSmith, Baker, Miller and Fisher to name a few. I mean, what else can you do with a name like that? Besides get a name change?
David Cassidy was arrested early this morning in Schodack, NY on the suspicion of Driving While Intoxicated. According to Times Union, he was pulled over at DWI checkpoint and was arrested when Officer Tom Jones suspected he might’ve been driving under the influence. The article says that is BAC was a .10.
The Partridge Family star was charged with a felony DWI because of a prior conviction. He was arrested on November 3, 2010 for DWI and plead no contest to that crime in February 2011. His license was suspended for 6 months and he completed a year of probation for that crime.
If I were him, I would tell the judge he just read, Shirley Jones, his stepmother’s book that details her exploitative love life with his dad. If that doesn’t cause someone to drink, I don’t know what will.
But in all seriousness, I hope he gets the help he needs.
Thomas Gibson was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. According to TMZ he was driving in downtown LA in an area that had been sectioned off for a marathon. They added that when he tried to drive into that area where they marathon had already gone through, cops told him to stop and he didn’t. So when the police finally stopped him, a source told TMZ that they smelled alcohol on his breath. He was then taken into custody and his being held for a $15,000 bail.
So I guess you can say Gibson went from being a man who studies Criminal Minds on TV, into being one.
Sally Struthers is in Maine starring in 9 to 5: The Musical and days before she was set to leave the town she was busted for alleged OUI. According to TMZ she was arrested at 12:30a for suspicion of Operating Under the Influence, whatever that means. She was released shortly afterwards on $160 bail and if convicted she will have to pay a $500 fine and lose her license for 90 days.
I don’t what is the bigger news from this story, Struthers being arrested or that the All in the Family actress is still acting. I haven’t seen her do anything since she was on Still Standing. I would like to see her do more because I actually like her!
You can buy almost everything at Walmart and do almost everything there (some college student once spent his spring break there), but a Kansas couple has proven there are two things you can’t do there. According to The Smoking Gun those two things are shoplifting and sex. Hutch News is reporting that Julian Call, 22, and Tina Gianakon, 35, allegedly took some K-Y Jelly and then started fondling each other under their clothes in front of others. The two were charged with â€œsexual intercourse or sodomy with any person or animal with knowledge or reasonable anticipation that the participants are being viewed by another.â€ and then released. The couple also reportedly took other items besides to lubricant, but I could not find out if one of those other things were condoms or a pregnancy test. If they weren’t, they might have to go to Target to pick those things up.
BTW is it just me or does Tina look like Shannon Woodward from Raising Hope? There has to be a way that the Fox sitcom can do something with this, couldn’t you see Sabrina and Jimmy getting it on in the store?
Fred Willard was arrested yesterday in Hollywood for Lewd Conduct. According to TMZ he was arrested at an Adult Entertainment movie theater with his hand on his pen!s aka The Pee Wee Herman. The police were doing a routine check when they reportedly caught him at the Best in Show moment. He was booked and released.
Hopefully someone will offer him some very important advice today like the internet is for pOrn. It is much cheaper and you don’t get arrested for showing the director you really liked his work.
BTW does anyone else feel for the cops that busted him busting it.
Finally I hope Playboy opts do a Thanksgiving stand up special with Willard and Herman at a movie theater, I know I would pay to watch it.
Willie Nelson was busted yesterday with 6 ounces of marijuana after his tour bus was stopped at the Border Patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca. When they searched his bus they found the pot and Willie Nelson claimed it was his according to the El Paso Times. Hudspeth County Sheriff Arvin West told the paper, “he could get 180 days in county jail, which if he does, I’m going to make him cook and clean.” That seems like a pretty harsh sentence for the 77 year old singer.
Nelson paid a $2,500 bond and was on the road again in the early afternoon.
