[video] Reporter smacks prankster for interrupting broadcast

Is this guy still working?

via HuffPost

We sympathize with (but do not condone!) reporter Steve Ryan’s reaction after this drunk prankster repeatedly harassed him during his live Las Vegas Strip broadcast about Michael Jackson’s death. Ryan tries to continue his live report, and initially reacts with good humor and patience, but when the man just won’t leave him alone and wrecks the broadcast, Ryan lightly slaps the man in the face. The camera cuts back to the anchors but not before catching the engagement.

Wonkette is right that the stunned expressions (0:33) on the anchors’ faces (especially the one of the right) “might rank among the greatest YouTube freeze-frames of some period of time.

Mike Tyson

Congrats to Iron Mic on his wedding to Lakiha Spicer in a ceremony in Las Vegas over the weekend.  Guess he was inspired by The Hangover. This is Mike’s fourth trip down the aisle.  Mazal Tov!

Former champion boxer Mike Tyson has married for a third time – two weeks after his four-year-old daughter died in a tragic accident.

The ex-heavyweight champion exchanged vows with bride Lakiha Spicer in a Las Vegas wedding chapel on Saturday, the chapel’s owner, Shawn Absher said.

A rare winter storm swept through Southern Nevada Wednesday, dumping the most snow on the valley in nearly three decades, grounding flights at the airport, forcing the closure of major highways and closing schools for today. snow-121708c

“This is the most snow we’ve had in Las Vegas in almost 30 years,” said Chris Stachelski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “It’s a significant historical event.”

The heaviest snowfall occurred in the southeast valley, where about 3 inches of snow had accumulated by 7:45 p.m., with unconfirmed reports of as much as 6 inches in Henderson, he said. Continue reading

Dumb Rappers Need Teaching: Mos Def sought in Vegas over camera scuffle

When we will dumb rappers stop assaulting camera men?

picture-42

LAS VEGAS (AP) –
Mos Def was being sought by police on an arrest warrant stemming from a scuffle with a photographer at a fashion trade show last August, authorities and the alleged victim said Thursday.

“I had no idea who the man was,” said Volker Correl, 60, a Los Angeles-based photographer who said the 35-year-old rapper and actor, whose real name is Dante Terrell Smith, ripped his camera from around his neck Aug. 26.

Correl said he was credentialed to represent a trade publication, and was taking photos at the Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention in Las Vegas when he was allegedly attacked. He said the last four photos before his camera was broken clearly show Smith reaching toward him.

“The last shot was his hands in front of the lens,” Correl said.

Investigators expected Smith would turn himself by the end of the week to face a warrant charge of felony robbery and misdemeanor malicious destruction of property, Las Vegas police spokesman Ramon Denby said.

Mos Def’s publicist, Carleen Donovan in New York City, did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

The warrant was issued Tuesday, said Michael Sommermeyer, a court spokesman.

Correl said he received a cut on his left hand in the scuffle, and that two Las Vegas Convention Center security guards retrieved the camera. Repairs to the camera cost $178, police said in court documents.

Robbery can carry a sentence of probation or two to 15 years in state prison. A conviction for misdemeanor destruction of property less than $250 can bring up to six months in county jail.

Smith built a following as an underground hip hop artist in the 1990s, and has been nominated for Golden Globe, Emmy, and Grammy awards. He is the host of the award-winning HBO spoken word show “Def Poetry.”

After experiencing a wide array of mishaps at his New York locale, Jay-Z’s newly opened Las Vegas 40/40 Club has seen several setbacks and massive lay-offs, and the former employees are speaking out.  According to Las Vegas Weekly, since its December 30th opening in 2007, an estimated 100 or more staff members of the club have been reportedly escorted off of the property or have voluntarily resigned from their posts.  Many former employees have gone public with their their complaints. Using MySpace and TMZ ex-employees have claimed that the club’s policies include: on-the-spot, mid-shift terminations without investigations, threats, degrading treatment, use of the n-word by management, and a complete lack of preparedness.  Operating partner of the 40/40 club Desiree Perez (aka Desiree Gonzalez) – wife of co-owner Juan Perez – is rumored to be responsible for the firings, but declined to comment on the matter. However, club manager Ramon Mata did weigh in on the controversy surrounding the newly opened night spot.  “As with all new businesses, you find out in your first few days of operations what staffing levels are needed,” he said. “We adjusted accordingly and followed all rules and regulations in terms of employees that were let go.”
