According to sources, the Transformers actor appeared intoxicated when he jaywalked in front of authorities. While law enforcement warned him not to, the 29-year-old proceeded.

The former child star was in town for the Austin City Limits music festival.

In the past few years, the Los Angeles-native has exhibited a variety of erratic behaviors. Last year, he was even kicked out of a play for acting bizarre.

We just hope this experience teaches Shia to act more responsibly!

So sad!

Earlier this week, a New Hampshire man made headlines after police accused him of causing the death of a small dog by kicking it!

City Council candidate Toby Tousley was charged with animal cruelty for allegedly kicking a Pekingese Chihuahua mix because it went to the bathroom on his lawn!

According to reports, the 55-year-old was making repairs to a rental building he owned on Saturday when the 17-year-old canine started squatting on the property.

Celebrity Chef Arrested For Allegedly Sexually Enticing A Minor & Distributing Child Porn

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersBusted!Sad SadSexControversy

This is absolutely awful.


Celebrity chef Matthew Tivy was arrested on Thursday for child porn and other charges. According to federal investigators, the 54-year-old was brought into custody for alleged sexual exploitation and enticement of a minor, as well as receipt and distribution of child pornography.

That's just so horrible.

In a statement made by the FBI, the owner of NYC restaurant Cafe du Soleil began to have online conversations — that he instigated — with a teenage boy believed to be around 14- or 15-years old.

Officials say the Food Network alum "enticed" the teen to "engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct and then distributed these visual depictions to others online."

However, Matthew's attorney, Glenn Hardy, is adamant that his client is innocent, telling AM New York:

"He basically said the two most important words: not guilty. And now it's up to the U.S. Attorney to prove their case."

Glenn also explained that the married chef has begun therapy, and "certainly understood the gravity of the situation."

But Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara issued a statement claiming that Matthew isn't innocent, after all, and knew exactly what he was doing. He said:

UPDATE 4:49 pm ET: Reports now indicate at least one person has died from their wounds in Friday morning's shooting at Texas Southern University.

We're so sick of reporting on these awful stories over and over again.

Texas Southern University in southeast Houston, Texas, is on lockdown after a shooting at a campus-owned apartment building early Friday morning.

The shooting has rocked the school, with spokesperson Eva Pickens confirming that police have not yet caught the suspect, and there are at least two victims:

  • "Texas Southern University has announced the campus is on lockdown following a shooting incident just moments ago. Early reports indicate two shot - conditions not known right now. The assailant is still at large. All staff are asked to remain in offices - students to remain in classrooms until further notice."

For Texas Southern students, this now marks the third such campus-related shooting in the last six weeks.

Our thoughts are with all those affected today as law enforcement can hopefully track down the shooter with no other injuries or incidents.

Bill Cosby's On-Screen Son Malcolm-Jamal Warner Says Sexual Assault Allegations 'Tarnished' The Series' Legacy

| Filed under: Legal MattersBill CosbyControversy

Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Bill Cosby

The Cosby Show alum Malcolm-Jamal Warner joins a list of celebrities speaking out about the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby.

Related: Celebrity Scandals We Never Saw Coming!

The 45-year-old actor, who played Cosby's on-screen son Theo Huxtable during the long-running sitcom, told the Associated Press that he worries about the future of the show:

"My biggest concern is when it comes to images of people of color on television and film, no matter what … negative stereotypes of people of color, we've always had The Cosby Show to hold up against that. And the fact that we no longer have that, that's the thing that saddens me the most because in a few generations the Huxtables will have been just a fairy tale."

As someone who worked so closely with the two-time Golden Globe winner, we can imagine this being very difficult.

While Malcolm admits to have been in contact with the 78-year-old comedian about the scandal, he would not reveal what the two talked about:

"I think the things that we discussed really have to stay private between us. But it's just a bad situation all around — for him, for his family, the women, their families, the legacy of the show."

He's right — this is just a terrible situation and we hope justice is found for the over 50 women who have come forward.
