A Florida woman tried to urinate on a police officer while being arrested last week for a domestic violence incident — and was hit with an additional charge while in custody for allegedly running over a man months ago, reports said.
The woman, 20-year-old Serina Probus, was arrested at about 12:30 a.m. on Jan. 1 after getting into a fight with her sister-in-law during a New Year’s party in the town of Holiday, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

The short-lived romance between Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber who’s the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, appears to be at an end. It was just three months together. Doubt this had anything to do with it but maybe Davidson’s return to rehab? Last month on the SNL season finale, Davidson remarked during a Weekend Update bit that he’s “going on ‘vacation,’ but insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces.”
It seems like celebrities are getting fed up with autograph hounds who wait around just to get multiple things signed, so they can turn around and sell them on eBay or wherever. LARRY DAVID lit into a group of these vultures after the Season 10 premiere of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” on Monday night. Especially after one of them told Larry he’d been waiting seven hours for him. Larry said, quote, “You gotta find another way to make money, okay? Because this is [effed]! This is [effed] up! Nobody wants to do this. Why are you doing it? “Stop it! Stop this [stuff]! . . . It’s so [effin’] annoying to do this!” But, as annoying as it is, Larry DID take the time to sign for a few people before walking off.
FELICITY HUFFMAN’s 19-year-old daughter Sophia Macy might be ditching academics for Hollywood. She just got cast in an episode of JORDAN PEELE’s new “Twilight Zone”. She’ll appear in a Season 2 episode called “Among the Untrodden”. There’s no word on the plot. The show airs on CBS All Access. Felicity served time for paying $15,000 to have a test proctor correct Sophia’s SAT answers . . . giving her a 400-point bump from her practice test.
Former Israel Defense Force member Seth Freedman admitted to helping Harvey Weinstein secretly investigate 91 people who were connected to his abuse case, including Rose McGowan. He told the Times of London that Weinstein paid his employer Black Cube a “seven figure sum” for their services. Weinstein is charged with two counts of predatory sex assault, two counts of rape and one count of a criminal sex act; jury selection in his trial is under way. The trial is set to begin January 22nd.
The most epic “Jeopardy!” contest is over, and KEN JENNINGS is officially the GREATEST OF ALL TIME. He won last night’s game, making him the first player to get three wins. JAMES HOLZHAUER finished with one and . . . let’s be honest . . . BRAD RUTTER never really showed up. In addition to his nerd bragging rights, Jennings also takes home $1 million. James and Brad each get $250,000. Even though he was pretty much a non-factor in the contest, Rutter still holds the record for winning the most money in “Jeopardy!” history, with a little over $5 million. Ken is second with $4.5 million . . . and James is third with just under $3 million.
Will Smith felt insecure about rap legend Tupac Shakur. His wife Jada grow up with Mr Shakur and the possibility of touchy touchy weighed a bit on him
What TV theme is this? MTV had a HUGE cultural impact on rock music back in the ’80s, so there’s a petition going around demanding that the five original MTV VJs (AUG 1st 1981) be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. For you post-Gen-Xers, we’re talking about Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, Nina Blackwood, Martha Quinn, and J. J. Jackson. Even if you’ve never heard of a single one of them, take my word: They were GODS in the early ’80s. And the petition notes that there IS precedent, because, quote, “both Alan Freed and Dick Clark have been inducted . . . as non-performers.” You can find the petition on Change.org. Last we checked, it had over 3,500 signatures. Of course, since this was just started by a fan, it’s unclear if the Rock Hall will address it, no matter how viral it goes.

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker is partnering with famed car auction company Barrett-Jackson to sell a few vehicles from his collection of vintage convertible automobiles. He loves Cadillacs and has at least two Cadillac tattoos, including their logo, on his chest, along with a Cadillac script sprawling down the side of his rib cage. Barker plans to sell a 1941 Cadillac 62 Series Convertible, a 1960 Cadillac Coupe Deville, and a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer. The 1941 Cadillac is expected to pull in up to $100,000 while the 1972 Chevy could rake in $200,000.

The Boston Red Sox fired manager Alex Cora Tuesday one day after MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred implicated him in baseball’s sign-stealing scandal. Cora was the Houston Astros’ bench coach in 2017 when they won the World Series, and when it’s also been discovered they were stealing signs via a centerfield camera and signaling players by banging a trash can. Manfred’s report said Cora was among those who, quote, “originated and executed” the system, and strongly hinted he will receive tough punishment. Manfred suspended Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow yesterday for a year, and they were fired an hour later. Cora became Red Sox manager in 2018 and they won the World Series, but MLB is also investigating allegations the team stole signs that year.

increase to $104 million in value if Donaldson hits escalators on the option.
Australian Open organizers are being criticized after several players have been struggling in their qualifying matches for the tournament that starts January 20th because of the severe heat and smoky air due to the bushfires in Australia. One player was leading in her match Monday but had to quit after she collapsed to the ground with a coughing fit. Two others had to call medical timeouts because of problems from smoke inhalation. Tournament director and Tennis Australia’s chief executive said air-quality and other experts would continue to be consulted about the conditions and play would be suspended if it’s found to be necessary.
Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson announced on Twitter that he’s going to try out as a kicker for the new XFL next Monday. The 42-year-old Johnson, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011, wrote, “The opportunity to kick in the XFL has presented itself, I must tryout Monday in Houston, I’m excited as hell & I’m sure all will go well.” Johnson played 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 of them with the Cincinnati Bengals, but his in-game kicking experience is limited to an extra point and kick-off during the 2009 preseason.
The Hollywood (Florida) Police Department announced that its athletic league has severed ties with wide receiver Antonio Brown and returned a donation given by Brown following an obscene outburst toward the police and the mother of his children on Monday. Brown posted a live feed of the encounter, which also included his children, on Instagram, and it was later picked up by TMZ. In it, he can be heard using explicit language and calling the police officers explicit names. He even tossed a bag of gummy penises towards her. The Hollywood Police Department released a statement following the video announcing the Police Athletic League’s separation from Brown. According to the department, recent events that have involved police intervention have caused a rift between the department, the Police Athletic League and Brown. “We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown. We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization.” Brown was also given a trespass warning for the Police Athletic League property because the department “did not want him to continue to affect our youth nor influence them in a negative way.”

This week, boxing bigwig Tyson Fury was asked how he’s preparing for his February 22 rematch with heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder. Without a hint of sarcasm, Fury told reporters, “I’m masturbating seven times a day to keep my testosterone pumping. Pump it, pump it, pump it, pump it up! Dontcha know! I gotta to keep active and the testosterone flowing for the fight. Don’t want the levels to go down.” Fury and Wilder fought to a controversial draw in their last tussle. At least this time, there’s some clue as to how Fury might celebrate if he wins.

The PGA Tour has introduced a new policy that will keep track of slow players and impose penalties for slow play time. Players will be put on an observation list and given warning if they take longer than 60 seconds to play a shot. There will also be a one-stroke penalty for a second bad time in a tournament, instead of in a round as it is currently. The observation list won’t be made public, with only players on it to be notified.
