Man driving with a chicken on his shoulder arrested for 3rd OWI offense – CBS58

An unusual OWI arrest took place in Oak Creek this week.

Police were called to an area near Howell Avenue on Sunday, Nov. 3, after a caller reported a driver swerving all over the road with a chicken on his shoulder. 

“We’re on Howell, there’s a guy behind us, and he has a — he’s driving really reckless, but he has a hawk in his car,” a 911 caller said. “He’s like just driving, holding it, he’s swerving all over the road on Howell.”

The bird was actually a chicken, and police located both the driver, a 42-year-old Milwaukee man, and the bird he was driving with near Howell and Drexel.

Actor Charles Levin, 70, died over the summer, and now a new report is shedding light on what happened. Levin was reported missing by his son Jesse on June 28 after he called a friend to say he was lost somewhere near Cave Junction, Oregon. Now, DailyMail.com has obtained official reports from the case that reveal that on July 13 Levin’s car was found on a remote road. His body was discovered at the bottom of a 30-foot ravine. Public Safety records indicate that Levin had been dead for days. His body was naked and wedged between two trees. The report indicated signs of “animal scavenging likely in the form of turkey vultures.” “there were no signs of external genitalia present.”  Authorities used dental records to identify his body, and his death has been ruled accidental. Police reportedly had to scale a slope and retrieve his body using a rope-and-pulley system. The unnamed local who discovered his car and his body told DailyMail.com, “It looked like he was trying to take a back route to Grants Pass [where he lived]. But the road he went down was remote and doesn’t have any signs. It’s easy to get lost, and GPS doesn’t work.” The source went on to say, “His car was pretty banged up and was off a logging trail. I went up on foot, hiking. I wouldn’t have driven up there by myself, no way. I think he might have made a few bad decisions.” The public safety report stated his Fiat was damaged and trapped in a pile of dirt. His pet pug Boo Boo Bear was found dead inside the vehicle. Levin was a familiar face on TV, including on “Alice,” “The Golden Girls,” “NYPD Blue,” and “Hill Street Blues.” He famously played a mohel in the 1993 “Seinfeld” episode “The Bris.”

Ric Ocasek of The Cars removed his estranged wife from his will before he passed away in September. He had separated from model Paulina Porizkova in May of 2018. “Paulina is not entitled to any elective share … because she has abandoned me,” he said. He signed the will on August 28, a few weeks before he died. Porizkova was the person who found his lifeless body; he was recovering from surgery and she was bringing him a morning cup of coffee. His death, primarily caused by heart disease, was “untimely and unexpected,” she said. The couple met in 1984 when Porizkova was cast in The Cars’ music video for “Drive.” They were married for 28 years and have two sons. Ocasek had just over $5 million dollars in assets at the time of his death, but he might have stored additional money in private trusts.

Hayden Panettiere is back with her ex Brian Hickerson, seen walking through an airport together. One month ago, a felony domestic violence charge against Hickerson was dismissed, citing “failure to secure a material witness.” Sources say that Panettiere’s family still “don’t approve of their relationship”.

Kaia Gerber, the daughter of Randy Gerber and Cindy Crawford is 18 years old and been seen on dates with 25 year old Pete Davidson. No one has confirmed yes we are dating but I saw a picture of her with a super nice necklace on with the letter P on it. So if my daughter has the letter P on a necklace and it stands for Pete…Im ok with that as the letter P could stand for worse.

CHRIS BROWN held a YARD SALE at his home in Tarzana, California on Wednesday . . . and one woman walked away with one of his old hoodies. But when she got it home and checked the pockets, she found a pill bottle full of WEED in it.  The bottle was labeled “Panda Smoke,” and it had a picture of a panda blowing smoke on it. On a related note, cops made a few visits to Chris’ house on Tuesday while he was setting up . . . you know, to check on things and go over some “rules” with him.  His people are calling it harassment. 

Speaking at the Fast Company innovation festival yesterday, Kanye West reiterated his desire to run for president — among other things. He was discussing bringing jobs to the U.S. via his sneaker line, before segueing into “When I run for president in 2024”. The audience reportedly laughed at this line, which West didn’t take well. “What are you laughing at?” he asked, before staring for a long time at the audience. West also said that he may legally change his name to “Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West,” and he’s come to the conclusion that “Rome was our original Silicon Valley.” West then added that “there are only four elements: earth, wind, fire and water … therefore playing with your iPhone is the same as playing with dirt.” West is also working on biodegradable sneakers made of algae.

TRUMP has a lot on his plate right now.  But that’s not stopping him from lining up his next reality TV opportunity. So-called “sources” say he’s kept in touch with MARK BURNETT, the creator of “The Apprentice”, and they’ve talked about possible projects for him when he leaves office. One of those projects is supposedly called “The Apprentice: White House”, that would put some kind of political spin on the show.

GLAAD has released its annual “Where We Are on TV” report, which breaks down the number of LGBTQ characters on TV.  And this year, there’s good news. Of the 879 regular characters on broadcast scripted primetime shows this season, 90 (or 10.2%) were identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and / or queer.  That’s the highest percentage GLAAD has found since they started 15 years ago. Also, racial diversity of LGBTQ characters increased on broadcast and cable, but decreased on streaming originals.  And this year, there are 38 regular and recurring transgender characters on broadcast, cable, and streaming, up from 26 last year.

BH90210 has been cancelled. The show brought original series cast members back together for six episodes over the summer, and ended up being the highest rated scripted broadcast show of the season… the first couple of episodes, and by the fourth episode viewership had dropped significantly. The show was also plagued by production drama, causing writers and others to quit mid-season, apparently over interference from two of the show’s lead actresses. 

CBS is bringing back the ’80s show “The Equalizer” . . . with QUEEN LATIFAH in the title role. The original series starred EDWARD WOODWARD as a retired intelligence operative who used his skills to help people in difficult situations who had nowhere else to turn.  It ran from 1985 to 1989. DENZEL WASHINGTON starred in two films based on the show, in 2014 and 2018. CBS already has reboots of three classic series on its schedule:  “Hawaii Five-0”“MacGyver”, and “Magnum P.I.”

There’s a new sitcom in the works that’ll air DAILY.  It’s called “Today’s Special” and it takes place in a 24-hour diner, where the lives of staff and regulars intertwine with trending topics and the day’s headlines. And it’ll be shot daily, so it’s kind of like a sitcom mixed with a soap opera, sprinkled with the timeliness of late night TV.

Disney is going all-in on the Oscar hype for “Avengers: Endgame”.  They’re asking the Academy to consider 13 cast members for nominations. ROBERT DOWNEY JR. is obviously one of them, but even he doesn’t get to be considered a LEAD actor.  They’re pushing everyone in the SUPPORTING categories.  Here’s who else they’re backing: Actor:  Chris Evans (Captain America) . . . Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner / The Hulk) . . . Chris Hemsworth (Thor) . . . Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) . . . Josh Brolin (Thanos) . . . Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) . . . and Don Cheadle (War Machine). Actress:  Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) . . . Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) . . . Zoe Saldana (Gamora) . . . Karen Gillan (Nebula) . . . Brie Larson (Captain Marvel). As for those NOT nominated, we’d be here all day trying to name them.  But the more notable “snubs” include Tom Holland (Spider-Man) . . . Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Strange) . . . and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon). Disney is also backing the film for Best Picture, and Joe and Anthony Russo for Best Director. 

Bloody-Disgusting.com says that another “Scream” movie is in the works . . . obviously without Wes Craven, who passed away in 2015.  He directed all four “Scream” movies, which were released in 1996, 1997, 2000, and 2011. There’s also a show called “Scream”, which aired on MTV in 2015 and 2016 . . . and then on VH1 earlier this year.  But it’s basically a reboot that doesn’t share any characters or plotlines with the movies. It’s unclear if the next movie will be a sequel, or if it’ll be a remake . . . and it’s too early to say whether any of the previous stars would be onboard.

Paramount has set release dates for “Paranormal Activity” and “My Little Pony” series. Unfortunately its 2 different movies. Paranormal Little Pony Activity seems like it’d be pretty rad. The seventh installment of “Paranormal Activity” will be released on March 19, 2021. Known for their very low budgets the original 2007 film was made on a $15,000 budget. The “My Little Pony” film will be released on September 24, 2021. Plot details have not been released, The 2017 feature film “My Little Pony: The Movie,” grossed $60 million worldwide against a $6.5 million budget. Paramount  in 2021 will also give us a seventh “Mission: Impossible” film. Also,  “Micronauts” of the gam

Today’s BURTON BIRTHDAY OF THE DAY…he is a proud member of the three timers club here on the Rizz Show…and…he’s one of my personal favorite birthday shout outs….Today….we get to say Happy Burfday to him….Sinbad is 63 years young today. 

The Blues announced that the injury to Alexander Steen was a little more serious than some thought.  During the game Wednesday against the Oilers, Steen suffered a high-ankle sprain and was placed on IR.  He will be reevaluated in 4 weeks.  The Blues are off tonight but take on the Flames tomorrow up in Calgary.  Puck drop is scheduled for 9PM.

The MLB announced the Silver Slugger awards last night.  The awards are given to the players in each league that are the best hitters at their designated position.  So…how many St. Louis Cardinals got honors?  Answer:  Zero.  You can see the full list on the blog…in the NL, Freddie Freeman from the Braves, Anthony Rendon from the Nationals, and Christian Yelich from the Brewers received awards.  In the AL names like Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, and George Springer were all honored.

The Raiders beat the Los Angeles Chargers 26-24 last night in Oakland. The Raiders scored the go-ahead and winning touchdown on a 18-yard run by Josh Jacobs with just 1:02 left to play. Oakland kicker Daniel Carlson missed the extra point, putting more pressure on the defense, but Karl Joseph sealed the victory with an interception of a fourth-down pass by Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was 21 of 31 for 218 yards and a touchdown.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubinsky wants the televisions at the team HQ shut down so that his team doesn’t hear outside criticism. While last year the Bears won their division, they aren’t having a great season thus far; they’ve lost the last four games and currently sit at the bottom of the NFC North division.

Antonio Brown is pissed again.  And with his latest social post….there goes any chance Brown ever had of playing in 2019, or possibly ever again. Brown has a meeting with the league in a week and he has gone unhinged again on Twitter, with this message: “Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly

[sic]

! Making money of my swear and blood. F–k the NFL I’ll never play in that sh-t treat black people the worse [sic]! Clear my name and go f–k your self.” It’s unclear why Brown has blown a gasket this time. Regardless, Brown’s latest message to the league will do nothing to enhance his chances of playing again this season. And while he has blown hot-and-cold about returning to the NFL since being cut by the Patriots, Brown needs to be very concerned that, this time, he has really screwed up his journey back to pro football at its highest level.

Tiger Woods the captain chose Tiger Woods the player Thursday night among his four at-large selections for the U.S. Presidents Cup team that will play against an International squad next month in Australia. Woods, who was expected to pick himself after he won the Zozo Championship recently, also added Tony Finau, U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland and Patrick Reed to the 12-man team.

Three months into the football season, and ahead of a state playoff game, a McCluer North football player finds himself on the sideline.  Sophomore Jason Easley transferred from a school in Jefferson City to McCluer North in August. He played quarterback on the football team and everything seemed to be going fine. Then, three weeks ago, Easley said the athletic director called him into his office and asked if he was eligible. He said yes.  But according to the school district, an internal review late last month uncovered Easley wasn’t eligible; he wasn’t on the roster and Easley was told his grades weren’t up the par. In fact, he was told he was never on the roster. The school then self-reported the violation to the Missouri State High School Activities Association, which is now investigating. The QBs mom wants EVERYONE to know that they were NOT trying to scam the system and Jason THOUGHT he was eligible from day one and his name was in the game program as the QB for every single game this year.  The situation cost McCluer North home field advantage for Friday’s game against Parkway West, and Easley the rest of his season.  MSHAA officials said they are still reviewing this case and could issue other punishments as needed.

The Florida State football team fired their head coach after a loss to Miami this past weekend.   So, what does that mean for the future of Florida State and why do you care?  Well a BUNCH of big names are being thrown around as far as who will be their next head coach.  But the newest name is probably the biggest.  He played for FSU.  He got drafted in the first round as the 5th overall pick in 1989.  He is a 2x Super Bowl champ.  An 8 time pro bowler.  He played for the Falcons, the 49ers, the Cowboys, the Redskins, and the Ravens.  He is a member of the Pro and College Football Hall of Fame….Deion Sanders is rumored to be in the running for the open position.  Obviously, Deion hasn’t coached before and is currently a TV analyst for CBS.   

Some college basketball to keep on your radar this weekend.  Mizzou takes on Northern Kentucky tonight at 7:00PM.  Tomorrow SLU plays Valparaiso at 6PM.  And Illinois is on the road against Grand Canyon at 8PM tonight.
