S.W.A.T. Star & World War II Veteran Steve Forrest Dies At 87

steve forrest dies

So, so sad.

S.W.A.T. star Steve Forrest passed away on Saturday at the age of 87 in Thousand Oaks, California.

In addition to his many other roles, the actor, who was surrounded by family in his final moments, most notably spent two years on the 70’s action show as head of the police department’s special weapons and tactical unit.

What’s more, Steve was a World War II veteran, having served at the Battle of the Bulge. Following the war, he studied theater arts at UCLA and was quickly discovered by none other than Gregory Peck himself.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine, his three sons, and his grandchildren.

Magic Johnson Is The Latest Celeb To Get SWATTED — But Cops Knew It Was A Prank!

magic johnson gets swatted(1)

When is this SHIZZZZZ going to stop???

Last month, Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake were the last victims to get SWATTED, and even after California senator Ted Lieu thought up a proposal for an "Anti-SWATTING" bill, he was swatted… and now, Magic Johnson is unfortunately the latest victim of the horrible prank.

However, unlike the rest of the practical jokes, LAPD knew that the basketball legend was NOT in danger and only sent out a few patrol cars to scope out the scene.

Ashton Kutcher's 12-Year-Old SWATTER Charged For Ill-Advised Prank!

ashton kutcher swatter charged 12 year old boy hacking felony prank court

Uh-oh!

This law-breaking little guy might face a fate much worse than a spanking!!

The 12-year-old boy who delivered a deadly SWAT team to Ashton Kutcher's house is being charged with four felonies!

In October, the kid allegedly Punk'd Ashton and emergency responders by telling them intruders armed with guns and explosives had laid siege to the Two and a Half Men star's mansion.

While it sounds like a HIGHlarious prank, this young man did more than just scare the crap out of Ashton — his hoax wasted tax-payer money, put lives in danger, and tied up invaluable personnel!!

The unnamed minor is charged with two felony counts of making false bomb threats and two more for computer intrusion.

His Juvenile Court arraignment is Friday.

Chris Brown's Home SWARMED By Cops After SWATTING Stunt!!!

Filed under: Chris Brown

This has GOT to stop!!!

Chris Brown's home was INVADED by the LAPD after someone called 911 and reported a domestic incident happening at the house which involved a gun, but when the police arrived it turned out the call was a horrible and misguided prank!!!

Police say the caller phoned the cops and said a mother and father were in a fight and that the father went into his room to get a gun. The caller then hung up, but never mentioned it was Chris Brown's house.

The cops quickly raced over there, but discovered that not only was there no gunman but that there wasn't any kind of domestic dispute, either!

The police did not mention whether Brown was home when they arrived.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened to a celebrity, nor do we think it will be the last time either!

This is so not cool!

The LAPD say they are determined to find the culprit of this latest incident, and hopefully they will!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

aurora hostage situation

Why did this happen!?

The Colorado town hasn't even had a year to heal from the horrific Dark Knight Massacre when a hostage situation presented itself inside an Aurora townhouse.

Around 3am on Saturday morning, gunshots were heard inside the townhome, resulting in a SWAT team arriving on the scene. With 40 officers reportedly outside, the gunman refused to surrender to the police.

Police believed there were at least three or four others inside that couldn't leave on their own free will, and — after HOURS of suspense — around 8:15am, the suspect shot

Marvel Developing A TV Show Set In The Avengers Universe

Yes!!!

But since a television budget can't possibly live up to the standards set by the blockbuster movie, don't expect any of the actual Avengers to be major characters.

No!!!

Still, what we're hearing sounds pretty cool. Marvel is in talks with ABC to produce a live-action drama series set in the same universe as The Avengers. Instead of focusing on the heroes though, the series may instead end up being something entirely different — like a high-concept cop show.

It's all speculation for now, but the comic book company has
