Things aren't looking good for Jackie Warner.

You may remember, the former star of Bravo's Work Out was arrested back in February after driving her vehicle into a pole, then backing into the cops who arrived on the scene.

She has now officially been charged with misdemeanor DUI, misdemeanor hit-and-run, and felony assault on a police officer for almost hitting the cop approaching the car.

At the time, Warner claimed she had only had a single martini earlier in the day, despite blowing a .08% blood alcohol concentration — the legal limit. Warner's defense? She had taken an Ambien while safely at home and was out sleep-driving.

Warner's lawyer, Shawn Holley, says they're ready to fight the charges — but that they should never have been filed in the first place! Holley tells TMZ:

Geesh, how much is this company paying her??

Back in 2015, Kim Kardashian posted a sponsored ad on her Instagram for Diclegis, a medication aimed at treating morning sickness.

Almost a month later, the KUWTK star was forced to take down the post because the Food and Drug Administration found her endorsement to be "misleading," and failed "to communicate any risk information."

Fast forward to Thursday, Kanye West's wife is promoting the drug ONCE AGAIN even after going through the controversy!

The 36-year-old added the (above) photo with the caption:

"Remember this? Just want to remind all of you that if you're miserable with #morningsickness like I was, try changing your diet & lifestyle first. If you still feel sick, don't wait-ask your doctor about #Diclegis (doxylamine succinate & pyridoxine HCl), the only FDA-approved medication for morning sickness. It's the most studied drug in pregnancy & it worked for me! I want to empower all moms-to-be and encourage them to speak up. #DontSufferInSilence! The most common side effect is drowsiness."

Unlike last time, Kimmy was prepared and listed the medication's safety information. You can see the full post HERE!

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersSad SadControversy

Well, here's a twist in the skies.

United Airlines has been shamed by the internet after a video went viral of a passenger being violently removed from an overbooked flight.

But now, it looks like the 69-year-old doctor who was hospitalized for injuries from the incident might not be so innocent himself.

According to TMZ, Dr. David Dao was charged with 98 felony drug counts for illegally prescribing and trafficking painkillers!

The doctor, who specialized in internal medicine, was also reportedly convicted on 6 felony counts of obtaining drugs by fraud and deceit, and was given 5 years probation in 2005.

Not a great weekend for Chief Keef down in Miami!

The rapper was booked on Saturday evening for felony DUI after he was pulled over by the police during a late-afternoon traffic stop, and then promptly failed a sobriety test.

Apparently, the police allege that a passenger in Keef's car had also been handing off marijauna to a passenger in another car when they got caught.

Artie Lange Catches A Huge Break In Drug Possession Case

| Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersBusted!

Artie Lange

Artie Lange is probably thanking his lucky stars right now!

As you know, the 49-year-old was arrested for possession of cocaine, heroin, and drug paraphernalia in Hoboken, New Jersey last month.

Now, TMZ is reporting the comedian's drug possession charges have been dropped, and he will instead be charged with three counts of "disorderly persons."

This is technically still a drug charge, but it's way less serious than the original situation, and is the equivalent of misdemeanors. To put it into perspective, he's facing just a handful of months behind bars instead of five years, if convicted.

It's unclear why exactly the charges were downgraded, but we're sure the troubled celeb isn't questioning it!
