Why can't Columbus Short just stay out of trouble?

Jared Fogle Charged With Soliciting Sexual Acts From At LEAST 14 Minor Victims — Details Here

jared fogle charged

This case has just taken a turn for the worse!

On Wednesday, Jared Fogle was charged with one count of traveling to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor and one count of distribution and receipt of child pornography. Yikes!

As we previously reported, the Subway pitchman has been enveloped in one of the most controversial pieces of news this year after the FBI raided his home back in July under suspicion of child pornography.

On Tuesday, it was said that that Fogle agreed to a plea deal for the child porn possession.

However, it now appears that the case is far more disturbing as news breaks that the former Subway spokesperson allegedly traveled between Indiana and NYC to engage in sexual acts with at least 14 minor victims. According to court documents, prosecutors believe that the father-of-two planned business trips to pursue his sexual exploits starting in 2007 until as recently as June 2015.

Is anyone else totally grossed out?!

Subway's since severed their professional ties with the longtime public figure.

Apparently, the weight loss expert paid for sex acts with minors and also received child pornography that was secretly produced by Russell Taylor who was previously the director of his charitable foundation. Taylor reportedly sent Fogle various images and videos of victims as young as 13 or 14-years-old — some of which were obtained through a hidden camera.

Whoa.

To make matters worse, Fogle allegedly found a 17-year-old girl online to engage in sexual acts while he was staying in the Big Apple at the Plaza Hotel. The victim claims that she told Fogle her age during their first meeting.

It's said that the married celeb paid the teenager again several months later while he stayed at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. She went onto to share that Fogle even offered to pay her a fee if she found him another underage girl to sleep with.

This is so upsetting.

The complaint claims that the scandalized spokesperson stated via text:

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Emile HirschSundance Film FestivalViolence

Emile Hirsch pleads guilty to assault.

Uh, 15 days in jail does not seem like much of a punishment against physical assault.

People get much more for far less!

But Emile Hirsch has pleaded guilty to putting a Paramount Pictures executive named Daniele Bernfeld in a chokehold at Tao nightclub in Utah during the Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 2015, and that's exactly what he got.

The actor struck a deal with prosecutors on Monday, and in addition to serving 15 days, he will have to pay a fine of $4,750, and do 50 hours of community service.

The charges of misdemeanor assault against him will be dismissed if he completes the jail time and community service.

The Police Are On High Alert As Straight Outta Compton Opens In Theaters This Weekend!

The police are beefing up patrols now that Straight Outta Compton has opened.

The film, which opened in El Lay and elsewhere around the country this weekend, is a particular sore spot in southern California for a few reasons.

First, the rash of theater shootings around the country unfortunately makes any film opening an uncertain event for law enforcement, and second, the gang stories shown in the film are concerning to El Lay law enforcement as they worry about rival gangs in theaters at the same time!

Peeping Tom Climbs Into Gym Air Vents To Peer Into Women's Locker Room! Scary!

You're not gonna want to go to the gym for a few days after reading this!

Equinox might be one of the finest names in luxury fitness providers, but even they can't keep out every creep.

That's because a 27-year-old man allegedly snuck into the air vents of a Glendale gym on Sunday just to spy on people using the women's locker room…

Scary!

Apparently, a cleaning lady noticed a sound coming from the roof when she saw Manuel Martinez climb down from the ceiling and try to lunge at her!

Thankfully, some of the other gym employees caught Manuel before he did any serious damage, but having to keep an eye out while your exercising now is psychologically damning enough.

Luckily, the non-member was charged with trespassing and prowling for his uber creepy act of voyeurism, so he hopefully won't be trying anything like this ever again.

Will U be working up a sweat anytime soon??

American Idol Alum Constantine Maroulis Arrested For Alleged Domestic Violent Incident

| Filed under: Legal MattersAmerican IdolBusted!ViolenceBaby Momma Drama

Constantine Maroulis arrested for domestic violence.

Former American Idol contestant Constantine Maroulis has reportedly been arrested for domestic violence against his partner and the mother of his child, Angel Reed.

[ Related: Constantine Stars In Jekyll & Hyde Musical ]

Reed apparently called the cops during the incident, which occurred in their New Jersey home, informing them that Maroulis had thrown her onto the ground and kicked her in the groin.

The cops arrested Maroulis, who quickly made bail.

His reps, however, insist that the performer was acting in self-defense, and that there are several documented instances of Reed being abusive to the father of their four-year-old daughter.

Maroulis has also insisted that he didn't kick Reed, and that he has injuries of his own on his thigh when she threw something at him.

Seems we won't be hearing the last of this, but we hope these two can work things out for their child's sake!

And in a non-violent manner!
