Kiss-blowing man arrested for riding on car roof: ‘I was in a parade’ – NYPost
Don’t rain on his parade.
Despite videos of a joyride atop his car that led to his arrest, a Tennessee thrill-seeker fails to admit any wrongdoing, saying he was having “his own little parade.”
The man, identified in court documents as 31-year-old Ronnie Sellars, was arrested on Sept. 5 on a disorderly conduct charge after photos of him “car-surfing” surfaced on Facebook on Aug. 29, reports Nashville’s WKRN. According to the arrest report, Sellars’ stunt lasted for about 30 miles along Interstate 40 from Wilson County to Nashville in an event he analogized to “being on a surfboard going 80 miles per hour.”

Singer and songwriter Daniel Johnston died this week after being hospitalized with a kidney malfunction. I have read it was a heart attack. He was 58. He had schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, but he recently took a fall and was hospitalized. He also had to deal with changes in his medication routine. Artists like Kurt Cobain, Matt Groening and Tom Waits loved this guy’s song writing. The singer is best remembered for songs like “Life in Vain,” “True Love Will Find You in the End” and “Walking the Cow.”
Kevin Hart was released from a California hospital yesterday, about 10 days after he reportedly fractured his spine in three places in a car crash. He is now headed to a live-in rehab facility and will be undergoing intense physical therapy to recover, and the goal we’re told is to get him home “as soon as possible,” where he can start outpatient care.
Artie Lange says he’s seven-months sober after rehab. “Great to be home! 7 months 14 days sober but one day at a time. Lots of new stories to tell,” the stand-up comic tweeted, adding he planned to announce a new tour. “Will announce some new tour dates on Friday. Thanks for the support. Love you all.” The 51-year-old checked himself into rehab after testing positive for cocaine and a string of arrests.
FELICITY HUFFMAN will be sentenced in the college admissions scandal TOMORROW. The prosecutors want to see her spend a month in jail, but her defense team is trying to convince the judge to let her off. They’re pointing to a Probation Department report that suggests NO jail time, because there was no victim . . . nobody suffered any loss due to her actions. And part of her argument is that her kid didn’t even end up going to college. Her team also argues that the prosecution is drawing unfair comparisons between Felicity and the other defendants in the case. Felicity only pled guilty to conspiracy charges for paying $15K to have her daughter’s SAT score fabricated.
KRISTIN CAVALLARI posted a picture of herself in New York in a cleavage-baring dress with the caption, “NYC for 24hrs.” Originally, the caption ALSO said, “And what a time to be here . . . always remember.” But she changed it after people started calling it insensitive. She also fired the social media staffer who was allegedly responsible. The staffer reportedly posted the image without Cavallari’s input, while she was at a meeting.
ALICIA SILVERSTONE went to Starbucks on Tuesday, and she brought her reusable cup so that she could be GREEN. But the barista made her drink in a disposable cup . . . then poured it into hers . . . and tossed the other one. So she’s calling them out on Twitter. She said, quote, “Depressing! . . . That totally defeats the purpose of trying to reduce waste. Then I looked around to see so many people sitting at the café, all with disposables! Ugh.” Starbucks only offered a generic response saying they’ll look into it. In the meantime, Alicia is also asking them to stop charging extra for non-dairy milk, and to stock unsweetened oat milk at all their locations.
You heard about the movie first from me and there’s already a tiny bit of Oscar buzz for ADAM SANDLER in his new movie “Uncut Gems”. It recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and the reviews are really good . . . especially for Adam. In the movie, he plays a jeweler and a gambling addict who owes a lot of money he doesn’t have to some angry people. And critics are calling it his best work ever. Or at least his best since 2002’s “Punch Drunk Love”, another rare, critically acclaimed performance of his. An article in the “Daily Beast“ suggests the possibility of an Oscar nod. Not surprisingly, it would be his first. Although he does have 30 nominations…for Razzies and nine wins. So at least he’s got that going for him. “Uncut Gems” opens wide on Christmas Day.
Rumor has it that Marvel’s next “Avengers” project is already in the works . . . and it’ll be a Disney+ TV series featuring characters that we’ve never seen before. Disney and Marvel are apparently working on a “Young Avengers” show that will introduce some of the young superheroes from the Marvel universe. And they could eventually appear in MCU movies down the road. It’s unclear which characters will make up the ‘Young Avengers,’ but some members from the comics include Iron Lad, Hulkling, Kid Loki, Marvel Boy, and Hawkeye . . . But NOT the Hawkeye you know. This one is a WOMAN who takes over as Hawkeye from the original dude. She’s actually getting her own Disney+ series called . . . well . . . “Hawkeye”.
“It Chapter 2” has been a big success at the box office . . . so not surprisingly there’s been talk of an “It Chapter 3”. Even Pennywise himself, Bill Skarsgård, said he’d be up for it. But don’t get your hopes up. The second movie wraps up the story that STEPHEN KING told in the novel, and director Andy Muschietti thinks that’s a good place to leave it. He says, quote, “This is the conclusion of the story between the Losers versus Pennywise. This is the end. At the end, there’s a conclusion, there’s a resolution.”
If there’s anything Millennials like more than binge-watching old episodes of “Friends”, it’s binge-watching old episodes of “The Office”. So the time just seems right for this. JENNA FISCHER and ANGELA KINSEY are launching a weekly podcast called “Office Ladies”. Each week they’ll break down an episode of “The Office”, share behind-the-scenes info, and answer listener questions. As Pam and Angela, they didn’t always get along on the show, but they’re legit best friends in real life. Jenna says, quote, “Besides talking about ‘The Office’, you can also hear us chat a little about our lives, our Target runs together, and our friendship through the years.” “Office Ladies” premieres on October 16th
That new television series focused on the career of Garth Brooks is set to air this winter on A&E as a 4 part series. Garth: The Road I’m On will air in four parts and highlight Brook’s decades-long career through interviews with the artist, his wife and fellow country star Trisha Yearwood and his band and friends.
Another preview from the Alec Baldwin roast was released and Caitlyn Jenner finally addressed the issue of…does she have…Richard and the twins
The USMCA is the signed but not yet ratified Agreement between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada for free trade. A group of Missouri farmers made a “YMCA” spoof video to urge Congress to pass the trade agreement, Cool but the cop from the Village People made them take it down, saying it was a copyright violation.
Breaking Benjamin’s hit single “The Diary Of Jane,” from 2006’s Phobia album, was officially certified triple platinum for sales of three million copies in the U.S. on September 5th by the Recording Industry Association of America. It was previously certified double platinum in November of 2015. “The Diary Of Jane” remains one of Breaking Benjamin’s biggest hits and the band’s most successful single in terms of sales.
Motley Crue, almost named Christmas, look it up, will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its 1989 album Dr. Feelgood by reissuing the disc on November 29th. The anniversary edition will feature the original album along with studio demos. The deluxe edition will include the LP on “coke bottle green” vinyl, CD, three seven-inch picture discs, a doctor’s bag, a prescription notepad, a deck of playing cards, a pair of drumstick pens, pin badges and guitar picks.

Week 2 of the NFL gets started tonight. The Carolina Panthers host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football. The game can be seen on NFL Network and kick off is scheduled for 7:20PM.
Monday’s 30-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints was a heartbreaker for the Houston Texans. For cornerback Aaron Colvin, it appears to have cost him his job. The Texans released Colvin on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Texans gave up 370 passing yards to Drew Brees and allowed the Saints to march downfield with 37 seconds remaining to set up Wil Lutz’s game-winning 58-yard field goal. He was a backup cornerback with Houston. The Texans drew widespread criticism for the final play before Lutz’s field goal that saw their secondary line up in soft coverage, allowing Saints receiver Ted Ginn to run free underneath the coverage to gain the nine yards needed to set up the field goal. Colvin signed a free-agent deal with the Texans in 2018 worth $34 million with $18 million guaranteed. He was due $7.5 million in salary this season — the second year of his contract.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is reportedly considering placing Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown on the Commissioner’s Exempt list after he was accused of sexual assault and rape by his former trainer in a federal lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Florida on Tuesday. Brown would be ineligible to play for New England if he’s placed on the list. NFL sources told the Post that placing Brown on the list is “possible” and something that league leaders will discuss when they meet Wednesday about Brown. Britney Taylor, the woman suing Brown for sexual assault, claims she met the NFL star at a Bible study. Taylor also claims in the suit that she’s passed a lie detector test. Brown acknowledges that he and Taylor had consensual sex, but denies the rape allegations.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith‘s girlfriend died in a car accident yesterday, four weeks after giving birth to the couple’s daughter. Petara Cordero was with Smith in his car when they pulled over to the side of a Cleveland highway early in the morning after a tire blew. Soon after Cordero got out of the car, another car hit the passenger side of Smith’s car and Cordero, who was standing on the shoulder. The 26-year-old was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The woman driving the other car admitted she’d been drinking.
Justify, the race horse, failed a drug test one month before the 2018 Kentucky Derby, and the California Horse Racing Board decided to dismiss the case after the colt went on to win the Triple Crown. According to reports, Justify tested positive after winning the Santa Anita Derby — and qualifying for the Kentucky Derby in the process — on April 7, 2018. Whatever the horse took is a banned substance that can enhance performance. Such a result should have resulted in a disqualification, purse forfeiture and the removal of his Kentucky Derby entry. The case was postponed for some reason, and when it was finally seen, Justify had already won the Kentucky Derby. So – the board said that the test results could have come from Justify eating contaminated food.
Team USA’s hopes of winning a third consecutive FIBA gold medal — and sixth consecutive international gold medal — are now over. The United States lost to France, 89-79, in the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIBA World Cup yesterday, snapping a streak of 58 straight wins in international competition. It also marked the United States’ first loss in the FIBA World Cup since 2006 when it lost to Greece in the semifinals. With the loss, the U.S. will fail to get a medal for only the second time in the last 10 editions of the tournament.
The Baltimore Orioles’ Jonathan Villar hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning at Camden Yards on Wednesday night, the 6,106th homer of 2019, setting an MLB single-season record. It comes with 18 days left in the regular season. The previous mark was set in 2017. Before that season, the mark stood at 5,693 homers in 2000. Villar’s three-run shot was the 22nd home run of Wednesday’s slate across baseball. Baltimore has allowed a single-season record 280 homers, so manager Brandon Hyde said he enjoyed Villar’s blast more than many he’s witnessed this season.
