Walmart Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Car Crash Has Been Charged With Manslaughter

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Tracy MorganWalmart

He's also being charged with vehicular homicide and aggravated assault.

So much for that plan.

Kevin Roper, the Walmart truck driver who hit Tracy Morgan's limo last year, wanted to get his criminal charges thrown out — but it looks like that didn't work exactly out.

On Wednesday, a New Jersey grand jury indicted Kevin for his involvement in the accident that killed comedian James McNair and injured the 30 Rock alum.

The grand jury formally charged the driver with first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide, and third-degree aggravated assault.

The trucker wanted the charges dismissed because his lawyer, David Glassman, said the actor's settlement with the department store drew a lot of attention toward the case.

The attorney claimed this would prevent Roper's trial from being a fair and impartial one.

The Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Tragic Car Accident Wants His Criminal Charges Thrown Out

| Filed under: Legal MattersTracy MorganWalmart

The truck driver involved in Tracy Morgan's horrific June 2014 car crash is hoping for a miracle.

According to legal reps, the truck driver AKA Kevin Roper wants criminal charges thrown out against him despite the severity of the case. For those who don't know, the crash killed Tracy's close friend and fellow comedian, James McNair.

Here's the tricky part: Morgan recently won a MASSIVE amount of money from a lawsuit against Walmart, the company Roper was driving for at the time of the incident. Given that Walmart essentially admitted wrongdoing by giving T.M. the cash, we have a feeling Kevin's request will be denied.

Despite the evidence against him, Roper believes the case should be dropped due to the public nature. Now that the legal matter is all over the news, the former truck driver thinks he won't be able to get a fair trial.

Unsurprisingly enough, this isn't the first time Kevin tried to get the charges dropped.

We'll be sure to keep you updated on the case when he makes his appeal this Tuesday.

Walmart Pulls 'Little Amigo' Halloween Costume After Racism Backlash!

| Filed under: HalloweenHolidazeWalmartViral: NewsControversy

Wal-Mart is already facing backlash for a Halloween costume!

Halloween is JUST around the corner, and you know what that means! Lots and lots of super offensive costumes are coming!!

We've already seen our fair share of outrage with a Caitlyn Jenner costume, and of course who could possibly forget the "sexy" Donald Trump costume!

But now Walmart is getting in on the action as their website offered a child's costume that was simply called "Little Amigo!"

For just $12.99, customers would get a package that includes a sombrero and a fake mustache so they can "dress like [their] favorite amigo!"

It didn't take long for customers to call out Wal-Mart for selling a costume that plays on racial stereotypes, and the company responded by pulling the item from their website!

However, Wal-Mart isn't exactly taking responsibility for the blunder as reps claim it from a third-party seller and should have never ended up on the site in the first place!

Well we can at least all agree on that!

Seriously, when are companies going to realize costumes based on race are NEVER OK??? Besides, whatever happened to little kids just dressing up as Power Rangers for Halloween???

However, Merritt's father is adamant that his son had nothing to do with the shootings, telling reporters:
