Not sure if she should have got locked up for child abuse, probably was a dumb thing to do but child abuse seems kinda harsh.
According to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office affidavit, April Newcomb, 39, can be seen on multiple YouTube videos “encouraging” her daughter “to physically fight” with the other girl. The videos, one of which can be viewed below, were filmed by attendees of the fight, which occurred in a vacant field near Palmetto High School.
When questioned by a cop, Newcomb, pictured in the mug shot at right, claimed that she only attended the bout between the two 16-year-old combatants in order “to make sure nothing got out of hand.” She also wanted to look out for her daughter’s health since the teen had “sustained a skull fracture from a previous incident approximately two years ago.”
“Of course we were both wrong and I understand that,” Newcomb said, adding, “I understand where ya’ll are coming from”.

More than 115,000 former felons who completed their sentences have had their civil rights restored since a new state rule went into effect 14 months ago, Gov. Charlie Crist said.
The rule by the Board of Executive Clemency, which Crist chairs, restored rights almost automatically, ending a policy of requiring the panel to act individually on every restoration of rights request. The rights include voting and the ability to get state and local licenses for certain types of jobs.
“Once somebody has truly paid their debt to society, we should recognize it,” Crist said Tuesday. “We should welcome them back into society and give them that second chance. Who doesn’t deserve a second chance?”

In another story of total ignorance a Jacksonville, Florida Man is accussed of selling fake crack-cocaine to seniors at a nursing home. Now I don’t know what is weirder this guy selling crack to seniors or seniors who wanted to buy crack. Unbelievable story below:

Investigators said Hillmon Arnold tried to sell the fake cocaine at the Golden Retreat Center on Moncrief Road.

The Lil Homie Plies is striking while the iron is hot. According to an article on SOHH.com Plies is reading his sophomore release Definition of Real, after enjoying gold success with his debut CD The Real Testament. Slated for a June 10 release Plies also spoke on the secrets to his formula. He said he doesn’t rely on high priced producers to cook up tracks, instead he leans on his brothers production company The World Music Group.
“We got a lot of good producers under our umbrella,” he says. “At the end of the day if you’re not careful you can go through this business coming out with great records, great albums and walk away with nothing to show. So, I’m just trying to tighten up my business side of it.”
You can also forget any rapper guest appearances, like George Bush the Homie Plies prefers to go at it alone. He is sticking with his winning formula and going with a R&B crooner on the hook and this time around he snatched up Ne-Yo for his yet untitled lead single. “It’s all me on this album but I was able to work with a Ne-Yo who gave me that good radio side, that radio look.”In addition to him tightening the music business side up Plies is also venturing into reality TV and fashion. Based off his two-part single “Bust It Baby” which Plies describes as “the best sexual experience” this will be the name of the show as well as an all-female fashion line. There are currently three major networks bidding for the pepper hot show which received 200,000 hits for the casting call alone! For more info on the Lil Homie Plies CLICK HERE

PLIES HIT WITH $10 MILLION LAWSUIT
An incident from 2006 is coming back to haunt Florida based artist Plies in the form of a $10 million lawsuit. The plaintiffs, totaling five in number, are alleging that Plies, his record label Slip-N-Slide Records, 283 West, a Gainesville club and others are all responsible for a shooting that took place at a Plies show. They claim that members of Plies entourage started firing pistols into the crowd after Plies microphone was cut off so Lil Boosie can take the stage. The following events took place in regards to the incident:
Two members of Plies’ entourage – his brother Ronell Lavatte, 31 at the time, and then 21-year-old Tory Carnegie – were accused of firing at least three rounds and charged with attempted murder. Upon completing a search of their vehicle, police found five loaded firearms and additional rounds of ammunition. Plies and another member of his entourage, Keon Mc. Rae, were then charged with illegal possession of a concealed weapon. Plies later pled no contest to the charge.
