Tank Talks Taser Incident

Posted by Bossip Staff

Tank aka Durrel Babbs speaks on being tasered in N.O. this All-Star weekend:

“The most frustrating part of the entire incident is knowing that I did not do anything to pose a threat but was treated like a criminal. With a clean-cut image and a lady by my side, the law took matters into their own hands and chose to endanger my safety and those accompanying me. It’s 2008 and New Orleans is still very much in trouble beyond the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I’m a living witness.”

SMH at “a clean-cut image with a lady by my side”, this ain’t no damn love song nicca.

Exclusive: N.O. Cops Give Tank the Taser

Posted By Bossip Staff

Tank at Grammy Event

An inside source has told Bossip about a shocking event that took place last night outside of a New Orleans nightclub. The source, a woman, and Tank were leaving the club and walking to meet their driver when they encountered a police roadblock. Apparently, there’d been a shooting. According to the source, the police were very rude in telling the two that they couldn’t walk through the area. Like a gentleman, Tank spoke up for himself and his lady friend, telling the cops they didn’t have to speak to them in the way they did.

The two were walking away from the scene when out of nowwhere 3 cops tackled Tank and began using tasers on him. He was arrested on a number of counts, including disorderly conduct, and just released on bail moments ago.

This is really messed up. One time in cities across the country are still abusing their power. Something’s gotta give.

Blade to IRS: I Will Bust a Cap In That A*s

It seems Wesley Snipes is getting his action roles twisted with real life. He sent a document to the IRS with the following words:

He chastised the IRS and prosecutors, saying their position toward him was “simply false, fraudulent and misrepresenting.” The document also warned the government’s “illegal collection action” would result in “significant personal liability” for those involved. “Warning – pursuit of such a high profile target will open the door for your increased collateral risk,” Snipes wrote. “I certainly don’t believe this is in your best interest and can be avoided.”

..Among other things, the letter claimed the IRS deceives people to “terrorize, enslave, rape or pillage” taxpayers.

Come on Snipes, this is not a movie, the federalies will lock yo ass up and throw away the key.

The System Works For Busta

Posted by Bossip Staff

Busta Rhymes No lock up

Busta Rhymes, aka Trevor Smith pleaded guilty yesterday to assault charges, driving while intoxicated, and driving with a suspended license got off very lightly (3 year probation, $1,250 in fines, 10 days of community service, and DUI school). Here is what Busta had to say about the system:

“I believe in the system. It hasn’t failed me personally yet. I’m just glad that all this stuff is finally behind me. I can get back to doing what I do best, making great music and great films and being a people person. I’m very grateful to the judge. I’m very grateful to the system.”

Yeah we bet. Everyone would believe and be grateful to the system if they got off that easily.

OJ Simpson was arrested today for allegedly violating the terms of his bail for a prior robbery case. He reportedly used the alias “Miguel” and contacted a co-defendant to voice his frustrations over his testimony.

The judge should really punish the Juice this time, order his ass to stay away from broke silicone blondes from the trailer park for 3 years.

Here are some pics of Orenthal looking happy about going to jail:

MySpace Snitchin’

MySpace pages of the Sean Taylor murder suspects may be used in their prosecution. MySpace is starting to be reporters and companies “go to” spot for information on young people. A detective in Miami commented on the MySpace page of suspect Jason Mitchell:

These pages “are part of the street culture, bragging about money, drugs, guns…a lot of the kids want to portray a gangster lifestyle and they want to portray this on their MySpace”.

Myspace is fast becoming the best spot to “snitch” on yourself. Your boss is probably looking at your sh*t right now.

Akon showed up to court today to plead not guilty to charges of endangering a minor and harassment for body slamming a white kid at a concert. The parents of the boy have pulled out their Ezel “slippin on some soap” come-up game.

3 People Questioned in Sean Taylor Murder

Posted by Bossip Staff

seantaylor71

3 people were questioned by one-time in Miami today over the murder of Sean Taylor:

Earlier, detectives detained two teenagers and a man in his 20s in Lee County for questioning in the death, and cops have identified two others in connection with the case, although no one has been charged. Investigators believe some of the young men had been to Taylor’s house recently for a birthday party and that may have set the stage for the subsequent decision to break into the home of the National Football League star.The suspects include 17- and 18-year-olds and a 21-year-old. All hail from the Fort Myers area.

The former University of Miami star was not supposed to be home at the time of the break-in. While the Redskins played in Tampa, he had come home to get a second medical opinion on his injured knee.

Taylor’s girlfriend, Jacki Garcia, and his family have been camped around his crib this week.

Update: Here are some pictures of the suspects:

Warrant Out for Shady Dr. 90221

Posted by Bossip Staff

Dr. Jan Adams

There is now a warrant out for Dr. Jan Adams, the “surgeon” who performed the procedure on Dr. Donda West before her death. Via TMZ:

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for Dr. Adam’s arrest, because he didn’t show up for a hearing today Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Adams and got a judgment in excess of $100,000, after he left a sponge in her following surgery. Ufondu’s lawyer told TMZ Dr. Adams hasn’t paid.

Today, Dr. Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 AM in San Pedro, California, for a “judgement debtor” examination hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor was a no show, and the judge issued a $30,000 body attachment warrant.

This FUBU doctor can’t even show up for court. It’s pretty much a wrap for him.

C-Murder Gets Another Trial Date

cmurder-1.jpg

Percy’s little brother and Monica’s former fiance C-Murder will go to trial again on February 11, 2008 for his second-degree murder charge. 36 year-old Corey Miller is accused of shooting a teenager to death at a night club back in 2002. Steve Thomas, who was said to be a big fan of C-Murder, used a fake ID that night to get into the club to see him perform.

Miller was convicted of the crime back in 2003, but was tossed after State District Judge Martha Sassone found that prosecutors withheld criminal background information on witnesses from Miller’s attorney. If convicted this time around, C-Murder will face life in prison.
