Bob Johson ,BET founder and prominent Hillary Clinton supporter said Sunday he is ‘insulted’ with the Obama campaign’s latest criticisms of Clinton, and appeared to take aim at the Illinois senator for his admitted drug use as a young man. “As an African American, I’m frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that I won’t say what he was doing but he said it in his book,” Johnson said while campaigning with Clinton in Columbia South Carolina. In a statement released by Obama’s campaign Sunday afternoon, former South Carolina State Rep. "I.S." Leevy Johnson, an Obama supporter, said he was offended Clinton did not condemn Johnson’s comments. “It’s offensive that Senator Clinton literally stood by and said nothing as another one of her campaign’s top supporters launched a personal, divisive attack on Barack Obama,” he said. “For someone who decries the politics of personal destruction, she should’ve immediately denounced these attacks on the spot.” Clinton’s campaign says Johnson was not referring to Obama’s past drug use, but rather his career as an organizer and state legislator. Meanwhile, Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, another African-American supporter of Clinton, said of the comments, "Sometimes people say things that aren’t sanctioned … I can’t speak for Bob." Later Sunday, Johnson maintained the comments were not in reference to Obama’s drug use: "My comments today were referring to Barack Obama’s time spent as a community organizer, and nothing else," he said in an issued statement. "Any other suggestion is simply irresponsible and incorrect." source
Former Miami Heat star Glen Rice was arrested Friday on a felony battery charge after police say he beat a man he found hiding in his estranged wife’s closet. According to Miami-Dade police, Rice arrived at the house where estranged wife Christina Rice lives, demanding to know the identity of the man she was with and what he was doing at the home. He found Alberto Perez, 37, in the master bedroom closet and began beating him, police say, all the while screaming obscenities. Rice physically removed Perez from the bedroom by the neck, according to the report. Perez then fled the home and called police. He received a cut to his forehead that needed nine stitches, police said. The 6-foot-8 Rice surrendered to police and was released after posting $5,000 bond. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney. As of March, the Rices were married nine years and have three young children. source

"I plead with you to alleviate the situation by not separating me from my boys, even for a short period of time," she said. Judge Kenneth Karas set March 11 as the "surrender date" unless a designated jail is able to accept her sooner.
