R. Kelly has been arrested, again. This time, the controversial crooner has been pinched on federal sex trafficking charges.

As long was rumored, the Feds had R’uh on their radar.

The New York Times reports that on Thursday night (July 11), federal agents arrested him for charges that include child pornography.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was already under indictment in Chicago for aggravated sexual assault and abuse, which are state charges. He also caught 11 more felony charges in May.

The new 13 count indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kelly was arrested around 7 p.m., while he was out walking his dog near his home at…wait for it…Trump Tower.

This story is developing.

Jamie Foxx Won’t Face Charges For Alleged Penis Fade

Jamie Foxx is not a reckless penis slapper. At least that’s what the authorities dec idea as he won’t be facing charges for an alleged penis slapping incident back in 2002. 

Apparently, the alleged victim took too long to come forward. No pun intended, we swear.

Reports TMZ:

Las Vegas PD tells us … Foxx is in the clear — at least criminally — because the statute of limitations of 3 years has long since run. The case was previously listed as an open investigation. As for a civil suit … nope — the statute of limitations has also run.

We broke the story … the woman accused Foxx of assaulting her 16 years ago at a party at his place, when he tried to get her to perform oral sex on him. She claims she refused … so he slapped her in the face with his penis.

Foxx denied the claims as soon as they were made.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller Files First Charges In Trump Russia Probe

Former FBI director and DOJ special counsel Robert Mueller has filed what is being reported at the first charges related to the special investigation into President Donald Trump‘s alleged ties to Russia on Friday (Oct. 29). Mueller was assigned to lead the probe, and there appears to be a chance that arrests in the case will be announced publicly at the top of next week.

CNN reports:

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.

A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment. The White House also had no comment, a senior administration official said Saturday morning.

Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.

The outlet notes that in addition to Mueller’s probe, three committees on Capitol Hill are also investigating the collusion claims between Trump and Russia, along with obstruction of justice charges.

Domestic Battery Charges Against Nick Gordon Dropped, Accuser Was Uncooperative

Nick Gordon is getting off. The domestic battery charges that the late Bobbi Kristina Brown’s boyfriend were facing have been dropped. 

Prosecutors had no choice since his accuser, his girlfriend Laura Leal, suddenly wanted no parts of the court proceedings.

Reports Page Six:

Florida prosecutors said they have opted not to try the case against Gordon, 28, after Leal “became unhappy with the criminal justice process” and “repeatedly demanded” that they stop going after Gordon, according to the State Attorney’s Office. Leal also wrote a letter to the judge on the case requesting that it be dropped.

Because Leal, 26, became uncooperative, the lead prosecutor on the case ultimately determined that it couldn’t go to trial, according to the State Attorney’s Office. The office also learned that Gordon had successfully undergone a four-hour anger management course as well as a four-hour alcohol and substance abuse course.

Nick Gordon was ordered to pay $ 36M to the estate of Brown after he was found guilty in a wrongful death suit.

Best of luck collecting that dough since dude is clearly living a life of struggle.

Assaulted UVA Student Martese Johnson Will Not Face Any Charges

Martese Johnson, the Black University of Virginia student that was roughed up and beaten bloody by white officers outside a bar, will not face misdemeanor charges related to the case. The 20-year-old Johnson was wrongly arrested for being drunk, although it was later discovered he didn’t have anything to drink and that the arresting officers knew this.

The Roanoke Times reports that charges of public intoxication and obstruction of justice against Johnson were dropped after Charlottesville General District Judge Robert Downer ruled in favor of the third-year honor student. Officers from the Virginia Beverage Control were overzealous in their arrest of Johnson last March, and accused the man of using a fake ID. Johnson spoke to media after the hearing, and hopes the incident brings about change in how such matters are handled.

From the Roanoke Times:

Charlottesville prosecutors filed a motion Thursday stating they intended to drop the charges of public intoxication and obstruction of justice because “upon review of the evidence … the interest of justice is not served by further prosecution of [Johnson] in relation to the events of March 18.”

As distressing as those March 18 events are, in which Johnson was thrown to the pavement during a questionable arrest by ABC agents who suspected he was using a fake ID at a Corner bar, Johnson said Friday that he was “happy it happened.”

“It was a large moment of injustice … but I think that injustice is going to fill something that’s so much more beautiful and so much more powerful,” Johnson said.

Johnson added that while he believes his race was a factor in the race, he also cited that the nature of policing in America in recent times was also at the root of his confrontation with the ABC officers. Johnson also graciously said that charges  against the officers was not he or his legal team’s aim at the moment.

But an investigation by the ABC agency is ongoing and disciplinary procedures may take place against the officers, both of whom are on administrative leave.

Johnson’s legal team is remaining mum on whether or not they’ll pursue a civil suit in the matter.

Bobby Schmurda Pleads Not Guilty To Gun Charges

Bobby Shmurda has pleaded not guilty Thursday to damning charges of conspiracy, reckless endangerment and gun possession Wednesday.

The rapper appeared in court and he was hit with a proverbial litany of other allegations that included shootings, drug-related activity and even a murder

Bobby Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, has been held on $ 2 million bail in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Howard Greenberg, the rapper’s lawyer, said that the charges are unfounded.

“Does it make sense that he would resort to committing crimes when he has the world in the palm of his hand? It’s ridiculous,” Greenberg said, per the Associated Press.

Police say they found two handguns and a some crack cocaine in a car that carried the rapper as well.

The totality of the investigation was even deeper. There were 15 defendants in the case, 10 of which were arrested with Shmurda.

Bill Cosby Will Face No Charges (In Los Angeles)

With over 20 allegations of sexual assault and rape currently being made against longtime comedian and actor Bill Cosby, there is at least one case that will not be pursued by authorities after Los Angeles prosecutors have decided not to charge Cosby in the alleged molestation of Judy Huth.

According to Huth, Cosby sexually assaulted her during a visit to the Playboy mansion where she says she was told to lie about her age, (she was 15 at the time.)

According to court documents the prosecution declined to pursue the case based on the fact that “…40 years have passed since the alleged incident, prosecution … is declined due to the expiration of the statute of limitations.”
