Former Vanderbilt basketball player Dai-Jon Parker died Thursday in an inner-tubing accident in Indiana.

Super sad news…

Dai-Jon Parker, a former basketball player at Vanderbilt University, died suddenly on Thursday in Indiana.

Vanderbilt's basketball coach, Kevin Stallings, said:

"We are extremely saddened with the news of Dai-Jon's death. Everyone who watched him play basketball knew what kind of athlete he was. But, to those of us who knew him and loved him, he was as good and happy of a person as you would ever meet. He always had a smile on his face and I will always remember him for that smile and the positive spirit he had. We send our deepest condolences and prayers to his family, friends, and others who were lucky enough to have met him. The Vanderbilt basketball family will miss him."

Parker, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was a three-year player at Vandy, playing in 92 career games.

For his senior season, he transferred to the University of Indianapolis.

Our thoughts are with all of Parker's friends and family.

Jackie Chan Reveals He Supports The Death Penalty For Drug Offenders Months After His Son Goes to Jail On Marijuana Charges

Filed under: DrugsJackie Chan

Jackie Chan has some harsh thoughts on what the consequence should be for those who are convicted of drug offenses.

It's a bit surprising since his own son, Jaycee, was sentenced to jail for sheltering others to use drugs — mainly marijuana — in his home.

After being named the first celebrity anti-drug ambassador in Singapore, the 61-year-old talked about his personal thoughts on the punishment for the penalty.

Seeing as how Singapore and China have capital punishment for drug trafficking, it's safe to say Jackie agrees with the consequences already put in place.

He says:

"On some issues, I do support the death penalty. When you're hurting thousands and thousands of young children, I think these kind of people are useless. You should get the right punishment.

[Young people say marijuana] 'it's okay, it's just like a cigarette.' I say, 'It's not okay, not in my family.'"

The actor then went on to talk about how the drug charges against his son has made him change his views on his off-spring.

He said:

"I'm concentrating on him now. [It] used to be just, 'You are a grown man.' But now I've found out that he's still a boy."

Sounds like Singapore made the right call by asking Jackie to be their ambassador on this topic!

At least Jackie understands it's a problem and is willing to work on the issue with Jaycee.
