The summer of 2020 wasn’t pleasant for comedian Chris D’Elia. Mulitple women accused him of sexual misconduct. Well yesterday not so good either. He was accused of sexually exploiting a minor and soliciting child pornography in a federal lawsuit on behalf of a Jane Doe in California. She claims that in 2014, a then 34-year-old D’Elia sexually abused Doe while she was 17 years old and demanded sexually explicit images from her after meeting her over social media. A spokesperson for D’Elia said, “Chris denies these allegations and will vigorously defend against them in court.” It started with her DMing him. 5-10 nude pics later he invites her to a show. Then to his hotel. She brought a friend but he wouldn’t open the door until that friend left according to her. They did stuff. She said she was 17 and in HS. Then he wanted and got about 100 pics over about 6 months half of those while she was a minor. Then she blocked him on everything. Not sure how much she wants but she is also looking for a judge to keep him from possessing or “taking any action” with all those pics of her he has.
Steve Klein, founding guitarist of band New Found Glory, has been convicted in his child pornography case. He was originally charged in late 2013 with “five felony counts of lewd acts on a child, as well as a count each of contact with intent to commit a sex offense and possession of child pornography, stemming from sexual two-way chat room videos involving underage girls found on an external hard drive at Klein’s home.” Some as young as 14. No physical contact was reported to have taken place. He accepted a plea agreement for indecent exposure. This case hung around for about 6 years until last month, when all of those charges were dropped as Klein agreed to plead guilty to the added charge of indecent exposure. Per the terms of the plea agreement, Klein will serve two years’ probation without prison time and register as a sex offender for at least 10 years. Plus, if he complies with the terms of his probation for one year, his felony conviction will be reduced to a misdemeanor and thereby his probation will be terminated.

His talent and his guitars are legendary. Now his guitar pick stories are better than your stories. To keep fans from possibly stealing the signature black, white and red picks as well as signature silver picks, Van Halen’s longtime guitar tech, Tom Weber kept them by his side in a small bag, even sleeping beside them on the road. Once setting up the stage, he’d line Eddie’s mic stand with picks for him. Shortly after, the picks would start showing on eBay for up to $600 a pop. That’s when the band’s video guy set up a camera and caught a member of the road crew stealing ’em after each show. He didn’t fire the guy. Told him to stop asap though. This crew member was making about $1800 a week selling Eddies picks on Ebay. Eddie also was told to stop throwing his picks in the crowd because of the brawls it started.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant to obtain the data from the “black box” in Tiger Woods’s crashed car. However, they did not seek a warrant to obtain Woods’s blood to determine whether he was under the influence of medication at the time of the accident on Feb. 23. Cops said that there was no probable cause to obtain it from him or the hospital. The deputy added that this is a routine part of their probe. “We’re trying to determine if a crime was committed. If somebody is involved in a traffic collision, we’ve got to reconstruct the traffic collision, if there was any reckless driving, if somebody was on their cell phone or something like that. We determine if there was a crime. If there was no crime, we close out the case, and it was a regular traffic collision.”
The family attorney for the five-year-old girl injured in a car crash involving former Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid is speaking out for the first time. The attorney for the Young family involved in the accident described the severity of the crash that left the girl critically injured and in a coma. “She’s awake, which is a huge development but she likely has permanent brain damage that she will endure for the rest of her life. She’s not walking.” On Feb. 4, Britt Reid’s truck hit two vehicles on the side of a highway entrance ramp, injuring the five-year-old girl, her mother, aunt and four-year-old cousin inside one of the cars. The family had pulled over to the side of the highway to help a 19-year-old relative whose car had run out of gas. The accident happened near the Chiefs’ training complex.
Nikola Jokic continues to build an MVP case by doing things that no center has done since Wilt Chamberlain. On Tuesday, Jokic collected the 50th triple-double of his career with 37 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds to help the Nuggets rout the Bucks 128-97. Jokic’s latest milestone put him in rarefied company for big men. He became only the second center ever to reach 50 career triple-doubles, joining Chamberlain, who had 78. Jokic is also just the ninth player in history to record 50 triple-doubles, and only Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson did it faster than him
Creighton men’s basketball coach Greg McDermott apologized Tuesday for racially insensitive comments he made to his players following a loss to Xavier last week. “On February 27th, after an emotionally tough loss on the road, I addressed our student-athletes and staff in the postgame locker room and used a terribly inappropriate analogy in making a point about staying together as a team despite the loss. Specifically, I said: ‘Guys, we got to stick together. We need both feet in. I need everybody to stay on the plantation. I can’t have anybody leave the plantation. I immediately recognized my mistake and quickly addressed my use of such insensitive words with my team.” Creighton released a separate statement, calling the language McDermott used “deplorable” and “inconsistent with the university’s values and commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment.”
The Minnesota Vikings have released veteran tight end Kyle Rudolph after 10 seasons, the team announced on Tuesday. The move saves Minnesota $5.1 million against the salary cap for 2021. Rudolph, 31, will become a free agent for the first time in his NFL career.
In his first interview since the memorable Lombardi Trophy toss at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl boat parade last month, quarterback Tom Brady said on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” that he “doesn’t remember that quite as well” as everyone else who witnessed the viral video. The candid Brady also indicated he wasn’t concerned about the potential consequences of losing the NFL’s most coveted trophy in the waters of the Hillsborough River, which runs through downtown Tampa and feeds into Tampa Bay. “First of all, I was not thinking at that moment. It was not a thought. It was, ‘This seems really fun to do,'” a laughing Brady said during Tuesday night’s show. “Not to mention, when you get your hands on one of those trophies, there’s a lot of really sharp edges on the bottom. … I found out later, had that been an incomplete pass, that would have went down like 80 feet. I’m so happy that Cam Brate caught it.”
