Florida man was too big to wear seat belt

“Fat Boy’s” associates weren’t very creative when it came to handing out aliases.   (Volusia County Sheriff’s Office)
                                                                     A Florida man’s cunning plan to smuggle drugs in his ample stomach fat was foiled because he was too big to fasten his seat belt. Police say that after 450-pound suspect Christopher Mitchell—whose aliases include “Fat Boy” and “Biggie”—appeared nervous during a traffic stop, a drug-sniffing dog was called in and a search turned up 23 grams of marijuana stashed under rolls of fat, the Smoking Gun reports.

Tracy Morgan’s mother banned from comedian’s hospital bedside


Tracy Morgan‘s estranged mother has taken aim at the comedian’s fiancee Megan Wollover after she was banned from visiting her famous son in hospital following his horrific car crash on Saturday.

The “30 Rock” star, who claimed in 2012 that he had not seen his mum Alicia Warden in 11 years, remains in critical condition after the limo bus he was travelling in was rear-ended by a truck, causing the luxury vehicle to flip over on a New Jersey highway.

He was airlifted to the nearby Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, where he has been receiving treatment for injuries including a broken leg, a broken nose and several broken ribs.

However, Warden claims she wasn’t even contacted by her future daughter-in-law and had to hear about the accident on TV.

She then tried to visit her son in hospital, but was turned away by Wollover and building security guards.

Warden returned on Sunday and was granted five minutes by Morgan‘s bedside, but she was not allowed to be alone with the comedian and now she has hit out at Wollover.

She tells TMZ, “All I wanted was for our family to be alone with him. I wanted to pray over him and couldn’t do that because so many people were in the room.”

We’ve Finally Regained All the Jobs Lost in Downturn

Jobs report shows 217K new jobs in May, unemployment at 6.3%   Today’s jobs report shook out slightly better than expected.

That’s the fourth straight month of “solid gains,” the Associated Press reports.
