Dame Dash Reportedly Arrested For Failing To Pay Child Support

posted by admin November 20, 2019 0 comments

Damon Dash was arrested for failing to pay child support, TMZ reports. The mogul was leaving a New York courtroom on Wednesday, when “about 7 deputies” reportedly “cuffed and processed” him.

From there, Dash was escorted to Brooklyn, where he paid off the rest of what he owed. He had already cleared another warrant earlier in the day. Per TMZ, Dash spent upwards of a million dollars to wipe his debt clean.

See original story below. 

Dame Dash was in the news last year after he publicly confronted filmmaker Lee Daniels over money he was allegedly owed. Ultimately, the two came to a settlement in September following their legal battle over the Richard Pryor biopic, with Daniels reportedly paying Dash somewhere around $1.7 million. However, it would appear the money Dash received from Daniels wasn’t his only financial concern.

In an unnamed ongoing lawsuit, TMZreports that Dash has filed legal documents indicating that he’s broke. He is required to pay $2,400 in the suit, but has claimed he can’t afford it. “My income streams have all been garnished,” Dash reportedly wrote. “It is very difficult to address the mounting bills until I receive some relief from the courts.”

Queens Man Caught Trafficking Nearly $15 Million in Fake Timberlands & UGGs

posted by admin October 29, 2019 0 comments

A Queens man was busted Tuesday for flooding New York with nearly $5 million in phony Timberlands and UGG boots, authorities said.

Since 2011, Hai Long Huang has transported thousands of pairs of the shoes from China to the U.S. via shipping containers, according to a complaint filed against him in Manhattan federal court.

Huang allegedly hawked the counterfeit footwear from tables he set up on the corner of Delancey and Suffolk streets, according to the court papers.

The pairs of shoes typically arrived as “generic,” the documents say, but were then stamped with UGG and Timberland logos in order to sell them for more. Others arrived already bearing the false logos.

“Some of these boots are produced to resemble Timberland and UGG boots in design and color, but significantly, are ‘generic,’” the complaint reads. “That is, these boots are imported into the United States without the inclusion of logos that are trademarks registered with the United States Patent and Trademark office.”

Timberlands typically sell for $140 to $400 pair, while UGGs can cost between $140 and $545, depending on the design.

Feds cracked down on Huang after multiple undercover agents bought boots in bulk from the shoe peddler, who in one August 2019 instance sold a dozen pairs of Timberlands to an undercover for $515.

Huang is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court later Tuesday to face charges of trafficking counterfeit goods.

Almost 15,000 Fake Nike & Jordan Sneakers Seized in L.A

posted by admin October 11, 2019 0 comments

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) has seized 14,806 pairs of fake Nike and Jordan sneakers. If the shoes had been genuine, they would have had a combined retail price of $2,247,680 USD.

The fake sneakers were discovered during an enforcement exam on a shipment that was arriving from China. The sneakers arrived in L.A. in two containers, each of which was declared as “napkins” to avoid detection. According to center import specialists and the trademark owner, the fake sneakers violated protected designs and trademarks for the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 as well as the Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 11 and Air Max 97.

The images released by the CBP show a number of fake sneakers, almost all of which are imitations of Virgil Abloh‘s long-running Nike collaboration. This includes the Air Jordan 1 in “UNC,” “Chicago” and “White” colorways.

For authentic Jordans, take an up-close look at Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack.”

Dancehall Deejay, ‘Belly’ & ‘Shottas’ Actor Louie Rankin Has Died

posted by admin October 1, 2019 0 comments

The dancehall and acting community lost a beloved figure in Louie Rankin. Rankin, who is best known for roles in the films Shottas and Belly, has reportedly succumbed to injuries he suffered in Toronto, Canada with early accounts stating he was in a car accident.

Rankin played Teddy Bruckshot in Shottas and Ox in Belly, roles that highlighted Rankin’s menacing looks and gravelly patois. Away from acting, Rankin was also a deejay (rapper in dancehall reggae) who scored a massive hit in the 1990s, “Typewriter,” and referred to himself as the “Orginal Don Dada.”

According to what has been posted previously online, Rankin was born St. Thomas, Jamaica, and raised between Rockfort, Warika Hill and East Kingston. He was still active in music and film in the past years according to his Instagram page, and Rankin looked to be well connected in his adopted home of Toronto as evidenced by the outpouring of love via his public Facebook page.

It appears that Rankin was involved in a crash in Melancthon Township on Highway 89 according to an IHeartRadio report, but details are scant beyond that. His official Twitter page also shared news of the unfortunate passing.

These Cops Are Seizing Cash from People Who Smell Like Weed Before They Fly to California

posted by admin September 11, 2019 0 comments

Smelling like cannabis and buying your ticket right before your flight from this Florida airport are apparently great reasons for cops to take your stuff.
On June 17, Curtis Simmons was in the JetBlue kiosk area of Fort Lauderdale International Airport’s Terminal 3 when he was approached by two unarmed, plainclothes detectives. The 32-year-old from Elkridge, Maryland, had just purchased a ticket for a 7:15 p.m. non-stop flight to Los Angeles.

“I had missed my flight the day before and I had to rebook with a different airline,” Simmons said in an interview. “As soon as I printed out my boarding pass, they surrounded me.”According to a civil forfeiture complaint filed in Florida’s Broward County Circuit Court, Simmons was stopped by deputies with a narcotics and money laundering task force led by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. As they peppered Simmons with questions, the complaint states, he granted the cops permission to search his backpack and his carry-on suitcase. It was then that police allegedly “smelled a strong odor of cannabis” emanating from Simmons and the clothing inside his suitcase. The JetBlue traveler said he had smoked weed earlier, but wasn’t under the influence, and that although he didn’t have a medical card, he used cannabis to treat work-related pain, according to the complaint.

Cops didn’t turn up any weed, but they did find $6,290 in cash in Simmons’s pocket and another $5,000 in a pair of jeans in his carry-on, according to the complaint. A canine would confirm the presence of “narcotics” on the money and, after asking Simmons “direct and simple” questions, cops said, they determined he was “exhibiting signs of deception and untruthfulness.” The complaint claims Simmons lied about when he purchased his ticket, misled about how much money he had on him, and that he became visibly nervous, began to tremble, and continuously put his head down in an effort to avoid eye contact. Basically, that he started acting like a stoned teenager.

When police finished their impromptu interrogation, they told Simmons the $11,290 was being seized for civil forfeiture, the process by which law-enforcement agencies can take cash, homes and other property from people suspected of being involved in illegal activity without charging them with a crime. It’s a practice critics have long claimed police departments use to pad their own budgets and generally lends itself to abuse, one the Supreme Court sought to rein in earlier this year.As it turns out, people traveling to California who smell like weed and are carrying large sums of cash appear to be regularly getting their money taken away at Fort Lauderdale International Airport. A review by VICE of Broward County court records found the Sheriff’s Office has filed at least 15 other civil asset forfeiture complaints against 19 individuals since 2016, all under circumstances similar to those in Simmons’s case. Two seizures occurred the same week deputies took the money in Simmons’s possession.

In every one of the 16 recent complaints, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office alleges cops approached individuals seemingly at random, that their belongings smelled like cannabis, that they had purchased one-way plane tickets with a final destination in a California city on the same day or a few days earlier, that a police K-9 detected the odor of narcotics on the money they carried, and that they provided untruthful and evasive answers as to the source of their funds and the reasons why they were traveling to the Golden State. In some cases, the individuals also had multiple cell phones. For those reasons, the money was seized on the presumption the individuals may be involved in drug trafficking, the complaints state.

But a review of the complaints and Broward’s criminal court docket shows that only three people stopped by the task force were arrested for drug possession the same day they were stopped. None have been charged with a drug-trafficking crime.

Lawyer who represented A$AP Rocky shot in Sweden

The man who first represented A$AP Rocky in his Sweden assault case has reportedly just been shot.

According to TMZ, Henrik Olsson Lilja, who initially represented Rocky in July before the rapper’s assault trial began, was shot in the head and chest as he was leaving his apartment on Friday morning (Sept. 6). The gunman reportedly jumped inside of a waiting SUV and fled the scene soon after the shooting.

Despite his gunshot wounds, Olsson Lilja was able to call the police. It is unknown if the shooting was related to his representation of Rocky, who was convicted for an assault on a 19-year-old man last month.
