Playmate Liz Dickson suing Playboy after golf shot allegedly hit out of her butt cheeks

Golf-teeApparently somebody’s mother never told them one of the most basic rules of childhood — never let someone stick a golf tee between your butt cheeks and try to hit a drive. It never ends well, and Playboy model Liz Dickson is claiming she found that out the hard way back in May 2012.

Dickson is reportedly suing Playboy and radio host Kevin Klein for a stunt she was talked into at a Playboy golf tournament a couple years back. As TMZ revealed, Dickson claims in the lawsuit that she was told to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with Klein. A golf tee was then placed between her butt checks and a ball was teed up on it.

Klein allegedly took a swing at the ball and missed, drilling Dickson in the rear end instead. She claims she suffered serious injuries — some permanent — when the club hit her and is also suing for $500,000 in punitive damages.

That doesn’t sound like it was a pleasant experience, though I don’t know why Dickson wouldn’t stop allowing it to happen when she realized a tee was placed between her cheeks. Only David Feherty would be stupid enough to do something like that.

Michelle Beadle ‘honored’ to be paralyzed teen Jack Jablonski’s prom date

Jack Jablonski Michelle Beadle

Jack Jablonski is definitely going to have the coolest date at his high school prom.

Jablonski, a teenager who was paralyzed from the chest down after being checked into the boards head-first during a high school hockey game in 2011, asked ESPN personality Michelle Beadle to his prom Wednesday, and she said yes.

Jablonski was co-hosting his weekly “Hockey Night in Minnesota” segment on 105 The Ticket and invited Beadle to be his guest on the show for the second time.

Jablonski’s co-hosts, Bob Sansevere and Mike Morris, were teasing the youngster about his crush on the “SportsNation” co-host prior to her guest appearance. Listeners quickly learned that Jablonski had something bigger planned.

A few minutes into the interview, Jablonski, who is a student at Benilde-St. Margaret’s School in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, asked Beadle to his prom.

“I’d formally like to invite you to my prom,” Jablonski said after his co-hosts introduced the subject.

Beadle gasped with excitement and astonishment, and she quickly said yes.

“Seriously, I would love it,” said Beadle.

“Can I wear an ’80s dress to the prom?” she asked, showcasing her typical quick humor and wit.

“And no alcoholic beverages, Jack, I will be watching,” she joked.

For Beadle, she’s hoping this will be her first positive prom experience after two disasters back when she was in high school.

The ESPN host told Larry Brown Sports that she has known Jack through Twitter the past few years. She shared her thoughts on the prom invite.

“I know that he’s a badass and someone I look up to immensely,” Beadle wrote to Larry Brown Sports in an email. “I was shocked when he asked today. And I adore him for doing it live on the radio. I’m honored to squeeze my 38 year old behind into a formal gown for a great night!”

This date sounds awesome and we can’t wait to hear how the night goes. The prom is in May.

And we have to commend Jablonski for having the courage to ask Beadle on air — that was very cool and it took a lot of guts!

Video after car crash at SXSW kills two

SXSW car crashTwo people died and more than 20 others were injured after a car crashed into a crowd at the South by Southwest festival in Austin early Thursday morning.

One person recorded a video in the aftermath following the car crash and interviewed some people who witnessed the scene. One man described the car as a ’90s looking Subaru that crashed into the crowd.

Two women who were waiting to go into a club said the car was doing about 70 mph when it plowed into the group.

“I saw all these people flying … it was terrifying,” said one of the witnesses.

Two people were confirmed dead on the scene, more than 20 others were transported to various hospitals, and 5-7 had more serious injuries, according to the AP.

The driver who killed the people is in custody.

Oscar Pistorius reportedly shot gun out of car sunroof without warning

Reeva Steenkamp Oscar PistoriusThe prosecution in the Oscar Pistorius murder trial seems intent on proving that the six-time Paralympic gold medal winner has a thing for guns. On Tuesday, Pistorius’ friend Darren Fresco took the stand and spoke about an incident where an allegedly angry Pistorius fired a gun through the sunroof of a car.

Fresco said that he was the driver of a car that was stopped by police in 2012 for a routine traffic violation. During the stop, Fresco said an officer handled Pistorius’ weapon. This allegedly infuriated Pistorius.

“(The) officer had picked up the accused’s weapon, to which the accused said ‘You can’t just touch another man’s gun,’” Fresco recalled. “He was furious about it, that someone else had touched his gun.”

To express his displeasure, Fresco claims Pistorius later fired the weapon through the sunroof of the car.

Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor also testified about the sunroof shooting incident, claiming Oscar and Fresco joked about shooting a “robot,” or traffic light, before Pistorius fired the gun. Taylor also said that Pistorius used to sleep with a gun at his bedside and woke up several times during the night to investigate noises he heard while they were dating.

Last week, another friend of Pistorius testified that Oscar accidentally fired a weapon in a restaurant once and begged Fresco to take the blame.

We all know I’m hardly a legal expert, but I could see the “trigger-happy” angle working for either the prosecution or the defense in this case. Pistorius’ alleged quick finger could explain why he was so quick to shoot at what he thought was an intruder, or it could explain why he was so quick to shoot Reeva Steenkamp if they got into an argument. That will be for the judge to decide.

Oscar Pistorius vomited during Reeva Steenkamp autopsy testimony

Reeva Steenkamp Oscar PistoriusWhether Oscar Pistorius is guilty or innocent, there is no denying he is having a difficult time sitting through some of the testimonies in the Reeva Steenkamp shooting trial. On Monday, Pistorius sobbed and vomited into a bucket during a testimony from the pathologist who conducted the autopsy on Steenkamp.

According to NBC’s Olympic Talk, Gert Saayman gave a graphic testimony that included details about Steenkamp’s shattered skull and descriptions of her fatal gunshot wounds. Judge Thokozile Masipa banned any live video, audio or tweeting of Saayman’s testimony after Saayman warned that the autopsy findings “could compromise the dignity of the deceased.”

Marzanne vd Berg, a reporter from South Africa, noted that a short adjournment was needed after Pistorius threw up at the start of Saayman’s testimony. Pistorius was later photographed with a bucket underneath him and a towel on his head, with reporters noting that he was making “loud retching noises” during the proceedings.

Pistorius also broke down in court last week as a neighbor described the scene he discovered when he went over to Pistorius’ house the night Steenkamp was killed. He has been extremely emotional throughout the entire trial.

Big fight at LA Fitness gym in Minnesota leads to multiple arrests (Video)

fight LA fitness Roseville

Is this the most dangerous commercial gym in America?

Police were called to the LA Fitness in Roseville, Minnesota, last Sunday after a fight broke out in the facility involving 10-15 people, WCCO reports. Three separate videos were uploaded to YouTube showing some of the incident, including one that shows several people handcuffed on the ground.

WCCO says the fight began over an argument in a basketball game at the gym. But this is just one of multiple dangerous incidents at the gym. WCCO says Roseville police responded to 147 incidents at the gym in 2013 and have already had 24 incidents there this year.

People were supposedly throwing weights during the fight, though that part was not captured on video. You can see the videos below. One person can be seen grabbing a plate:

Oscar Pistorius breaks down in court during Reeva Steenkamp murder trial

Oscar Pistorius broke down in court Thursday on the fourth day of his murder trial as a neighbor described the scene he discovered the night Reeva Steenkamp was killed. Johan Stipp, a radiologist and Pistorius’ neighbor, told the court about the immediate aftermath of the shooting that took place on Feb. 14, 2013.

“I went near her, and as I bent down, I also noticed a man on the left kneeling by her side,” Stipp testified, via ESPN.com. “He had his left hand on her right groin, and his right hand, the second and third fingers in her mouth. I remember the first thing he said when I got there was, ‘I shot her. I thought she was a burglar. I shot her.’”

As Stipp gave his testimony, Pistorius leaned forward on his courtroom bench and covered his face. He then moved them to cover his ears and remained that way for a while.
