Tekashi69’s drama has followed him to his prison cell. Apparently, a number of inmates at the facility where the rapper is being held are pissed at the special treatment they believe he is receiving. Tekashi is being housed in a dorm designated for high-profile inmates, dirty cops and child predators. The dorm was cleared out before the 22-year-old arrived and then filled with “docile” inmates who are not affiliated with any gang. Lance Lazzaro, Tekashi’s lawyer, told TMZ he doubts his client is getting any sort of special treatment.
“Big Brother” alum Christmas Abbott has pled not guilty to alleged criminal mischief.

The mandatory minimum sentence is 25 years.

The reality star pled guilty in an Iowa court room on Tuesday to one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, which is an aggravated misdemeanor.

After handcuffing Colt and talking to the pair separately, the responding officers decided it was Larissa who was at fault. In a message posted by Colt, after the incident, he shared that “it is the policy in the state of Nevada” to arrest someone during a domestic dispute, so his wife left in handcuffs. According to court records obtained by E! News, this is the reality star’s second arrest for domestic violence.

A judge has ruled on El Chapo’s request to hug his wife during his upcoming drug trial. The drug lord’s attorneys filed a request for the 61-year-old to be able to embrace his wife at the trial because he has not seen her or talked to her since his incarceration 2 years ago. His attorneys added that the lack of contact has “hurt his mental health.” The unnamed judge, who gave Chapo props for his exemplary behavior during his time in jail—has denied the hug. According to documents, the judge wrote, “the court is sympathetic to the request” but is “constrained to deny it.”
Drug Lord El Chapo has one request for the judge during his upcoming trial—to hug his wife.

The former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel has been in solitary confinement—not able to see, call or write to anyone—since his arrest two years ago. The judge has not yet ruled on the hug.
Alec Baldwin was arrested on Friday in NYC. The actor got into an argument with another man over a parking spot that his friend was allegedly saving for him.

The eldest Baldwin brother was released from custody on Friday afternoon with charges of misdemeanor assault and harassment.

Just 48 hours after the “Party Down South” star was arrested for allegedly punching her mother-in-law in the face, she was hauled in for taking her kids out of their home state of Virginia. The trip was a no-no because it was a direct violation of her custody agreement with their father. TMZ released the reality star’s mug shot, in which she is smiling. That smile will disappear really fast when she is told that taking children across state line is a class 6 felony in Virginia.
Tekashi69 was sentenced to probation in his child sex case. In a NYC courthouse on Friday, the rapper was given what his team had requested—4 years probation with time served, so technically 3 years probation plus 1,000 hours of community service. The 22-year-old was charged with the crime in October of 2015, after being at a party in Harlem where a 13-year-old girl was engaging in sexual acts with another man while the rapper was made obscene gestures behind the underage girl; it was all caught on video. A rep for Tekashi69 told TMZ that he “understands what he must now do moving forward and we will be with him every step of the way.”
MEANWHILE—Mere hours after his probation sentence, Tekashi69 celebrated his daughter’s 3rd birthday with his baby mama. The party had a unicorn theme and the proud papa thanked god (and the judge) for the second chance to be a family man.
The disgusting human named, Rae Carruth, has been released from prison. In 1999, the former NFL wide receiver hired a hitman to kill his then pregnant girlfriend, Cherica Adams.

Jovan “Pee Wee” Clayton was arrested last Thursday on an outstanding domestic battery warrant. The former member of The Rej3ctz, couldn’t care less about the impending arrest, as he was focused on his lady friend who he was going “f**k the s**t” out of—which explained the three boxes of condoms found in the trunk. His plan drastically changed when it was revealed that the woman with him was actually a confidential informant who had just “dropped the dime” on him. Pee Wee was booked on felony domestic abuse and his bail was set at $100,000.

Kool G Rap was charged with stealing a pair of pricey shoes from a Finish Line in Pennsylvania. The charges were later dropped and the hip hop legend is claiming it all happened for one reason…he is black. Kool G was accused by an employee of the chain, who described the thief as an African American male in his 40s. The rapper, who was shopping at the mall that day, was tracked down after the employee wrote down his vehicle’s registration number. The cops charged the 50-year-old with misdemeanor theft. Kool G’s attorneys claimed the cops never investigated it and “were just on the hunt for a black man.” The case was dropped after prosecutors determined the employee couldn’t identify Kool G as being the thief. The rapper’s legal team is preparing a massive lawsuit against Finish Line.

The 55-year-old tried to tell police that he was kidnapped by the Uber driver and he was fearful for his life, but the grand jury clearly didn’t buy that story and moved forward with the three charges. If convicted, Dykstra is looking at 3-5 years in prison per charge.
