Larry Bowen was sentenced this week for conducting the most bizarre drug deal ever.
The Arkansas truck driver attempted to trade a tractor-trailer stuffed with $50,000 worth of lunch meat for crack cocaine!
Last June, the 45-year-old was hired to deliver meat to locations in Alabama and Florida, but apparently found drug dealers along the way who were hankering for a good ole fashioned meat-crack-swap.

When their salami sticks weren't delivered, the company used the GPS on the trailer to locate the truck. They found the truck at a service station in Memphis, Tennessee — and Bowen next to it, eating a lunch meat sandwich!
When the company noticed the refrigerated trailer was missing along with the meat products, Bowen led them to a storage facility where two thirds of the missing meat was recovered.
The trucker explained to the police that he

Things just got real for The Real.
Its been announced that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has filed a complaint against Warner Brothers for a policy that caused the studio to ask two Muslim women wearing headscarves to move out of the camera's view!
In February, four young women attended a taping of daytime talk show The Real. Two of the women were wearing Islamic headscarves, aka hijab.
While they were waiting, studio officials told them that the hijab-wearing women couldn't sit in the front row because they shouldn't be seen on camera, according to a studio policy.

The pathologist says on the show that Robin's odd online activity suggested the comedian in some way, knew:

But things took a turn when Guru-Murthy asked RDJ about a quote he said in a New York Times interview from 2008 (which ironically was promoting his very first Iron Man movie) where the actor vaguely alludes to his political views.
After Downey Jr. pointed out that his opinion has changed since the interview from five years ago, the anchor took an even darker turn and asked the actor some serious personal questions about his past. Guru-Murthy asked RDJ:
Sobriety is so hard to maintain when temptation is all around you.
