Times are tough this holiday season.  People don’t have jobs and kids are looking for the next big thing to play with and store in their closet. So, while we don’t condone robbing, we can understand some of the sociological pressures to have the latest things.

Yes, the AJ11's are hot, but are they worth getting jumped, or shot? For many, the answer is yes...

People at the Hilltop Mall in wonderful Richmond, CA (no sarcasm intended or implied) risked life and limb to get these shoes.  There was gunfire, where a guy tried to pull a Cheddar Bob, Plaxico Burress and let off gunfire while waiting for the stores to open.  But, it was an accident, so that doesn’t count. We grew up with some snatch and grabbers, but not with fools robbing with guns.  When you go that far, you have to be ready to use. That was the Bridge too Far for most of the dudes we hung out with.

But, this time justice prevailed.  For those who have a job, they understand that they work hard for usually meager wages to make it work. They get up every day and in some cases, do a job they hate.  Robbing is easy, but you have to have some skill.  This is the story of Mostafa Hendi, who needs to take a remedial course in how to rob, or at least listen to my man 50.

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. –A robbery suspect got a lot more than cash when he tried to hold up a North Carolina store.

An employee knocked the suspect unconscious at the “We Buy Gold” business on the Spartanburg highway in Hendersonville on Friday and held him down until police arrived.

“He came through the door. He had his hand down here on his waist, hoodie on his head, he said ‘Gimme the money, gimme the money, gimme the money,’” said employee Derek Mothershead.
“And I got up, and I threw my hands up and said take the money if you want it.”

Mothershead took matters into his own hands.

“He had a bag and instead of putting it in the bag I kind of handed it to him,” he recalled. “I said here, take it take it. And I just kind of came in and hit him.”

Mothershead knocked the robber, 25-year-old Mostafa Hendi, unconscious.

No means no, Ben. You reap what you sow buddy boy....

“If he wants money get a job, work like everybody else in this world.”

Mothershead held down Hendi, who was bleeding, and called police.

“We Buy Gold” manager Juan Cruz said knocking out armed robbers isn’t exactly store police. But he had a message for anyone considering robbing the store:

“Merry Christmas … Mostafa Hendi.”

Hendi is charged with armed robbery with a dangerous weapon.
He’s in jail on $100,000 bond.

Video can explain why good triumphs over evil this holiday season.

Wow.  And that was with the left.  He never saw it coming.  Didn’t he see Friday?

I still think that the worst part was that he had to clean up his own blood, because he was leaking all over the place.  This is the picture..,remember that this is one punch.

They should have given him some makeup for the mugshot, or at least reset his nose for the picture.

Happy Non denomination holidays.  As Bing Crosby once sang, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, but he certainly did not mean it this way…

Rick James Cocaine

Truer words have never been spoken Rick...

I wasn’t dreaming of a white Christmas, but reading this made me think of brotherly love and I came to the realizaation that I don’t love my brother this much…

Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Butt

SOUTH CAROLINA (PIX11)—
After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother’s buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.

The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. “I can’t get no more strikes,” he told his brother.

He further directed his brother to “Eat that s***” and “Chew that s***.”

In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.

Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. “White powder residue” was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said “he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine.”

Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.

Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother’s death.

Why was he acting like a cheerleader?  I mean, c’mon man…he is already doing you a solid…
What do you tell your family about this? Holidays are definitively going to be awkward from now on. Worse, is that there is video of the act…

What a way to get up in the morning...

The kind of candy I am hoping to get in my bag tonight....

Only in CA is this an issue. We brought you the original Prop 215 to allow medicinal marijuana.  When I was in college, maybe you had pot brownies, where you would taste the actual pot, because it was not strained out, but now with technology, the ability to make candy is crazy.

Calif. Trick-Or-Treaters Warned Of Pot-Laced Candy

Trick-or-treaters in California have been warned to watch out for pot-laced candy this Halloween, the Los Angles Times reported Friday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department issued the warning to parents in light of candy and snacks containing marijuana being confiscated from pot dispensaries.

The warning comes days before Californians vote on Proposition 19, a marijuana legalization measure.

California has state laws allowing the medical use of marijuana, but the sheriff’s department said the confiscated items were untested and unlicensed.

Officials said in their warning that parents should check Halloween candy and other snacks for indications the items were tampered with.

Makes a dude want to dress up and go out knocking on doors that smell like Indonesia, if you know what I mean…

Wait until they get aload of me!

Owners of Brett Farve rejoice!

(I am one of those owners who had to bench him, even though I was able to steal him in the 9th round of a ten team draft)

Traffic Cops, be afraid, be very afraid in the Twin Cities! remember “straight cash homie”  is going to a city near you!

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss was arrested Tuesday after being accused of bumping a police traffic officer with his car.

The officer tried to stop Moss from making an illegal turn, and Moss used his car to slowly push the officer along the street, police spokeswoman Cyndi Barrington said.

Barrington said an assault charge was being considered.

The officer was not seriously hurt, WCCO-TV reported

Where is Ludacris when you need him?

Maybe we should extend an Amber warning to all the skeezers and skanks and scallywags (all better known as hoes, and like method man and redman, I mean it in a good way)

Damn it feels good to see people up on it...but not in a stalkerish peeping tom way...BTW, that is Miss KY 2008...wondering if she will need her States abbreviation after messing around with Randy...?

The New England Patriots completed a trade that sent Pro Bowl WR Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday morning, ESPN, the NFL Network and Boston Herald reported.

The Vikings sent a third-round pick to the Patriots in return for Moss, who becomes a key weapon for Minnesota QB Brett Favre.

The teams had not yet confirmed the trade. But Vikings S Madieu Williams said on Twitter that the deal was “official.”

Moss returns to the team where he spent the first seven years of his career. Moss caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 TDs from 1998-2004 in Minnesota.

It leaves the Patriots and QB Tom Brady without the stretch-the-field wideout who set an NFL single-season record of 23 receiving TDs in 2007.

I'm mixing up the game! DB's take your vitamins, I'M BAAACCCKKK!

From the Patriots position, they were on the come-up.  First, they got more for the guy then what they paid for.  When he was dealt from the blogs favorite team, the RAIDERS, they only got a 4th round pick, because they were happy to get rid of his contract and his dour attitude. (We still miss what could have been here in Oakland Randy)  It is rare in the NFL that assets acquire more value later in their careers.  Second, they did not have to give him an expensive contract extension.

Moss did not get a contract extension from the Vikings as part of the deal, NFL Network reported.

ESPN reported that Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke by phone to inform Moss of the trade on Wednesday morning. The network described their conversation as cordial.

For Favre, the trade gives him a serious receiving threat that he has long lobbied to acquire and that he has lacked this season with Sidney Rice injured. Favre, with the Packers in 2007, pushed the team to acquire Moss but lost out to the Patriots.

This is exactly what Father Time, I mean Favre needs to get the offense on a roll.  Soon, they will get Sidney Rice back and that offense will be firing on all cylinders.  You will have AP (not our boy tophatal, but Adrian Peterson) Headache (not the AND1 baller, but Percy Harvin) Moss, and Rice.  Plus, you have Shank Em at TE, so weapons are everywhere.

The receiver will return to New England on Oct. 31, when the Vikings visit Foxborough to the play Patriots (a game that occurs only once every eight years). Fox was already scheduled to broadcast that game nationally at 4:15 p.m. ET.

Moss’ final game in a New England uniform on Monday turned out to be his only in more than three years in which he did not catch a pass. The Herald reported that Moss had asked the Patriots to trade him after Week 1, when he had an outburst about his contract following a win against Cincinnati. Moss later apologized and said he and coach Belichick had cleared the air.

Moss, whose deal expires after the season, said after Week 1 that he wanted to stay with Patriots but added he thought this would be his final year in New England.

Moss is set to appear on Monday Night Football for the second straight week when the Vikings travel to play the New York Jets next week. He’ll likely be matched up again with Jets CBDarrelle Revis, who hasn’t played since tweaking his hamstring on a TD pass he allowed to Moss in Week 2.

Moss will be just second player to appear on MNF back to back. Keith Browner played for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Giants on Oct. 5, 1987, then played for the Los Angeles Raiders against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 12 (viaESPN and Elias Sports Bureau).

Since the Vikings have already had their bye and the Patriots’ is Sunday, Moss could become the sixth player to play in 17 games if he plays in the rest of the Vikings’ contests.

This is another bonus to fantasy players who got jobbed this week by his unusual lack of effectiveness.  It is the functional equivalent of the “do-over” in backyard sports.  I guarantee that Favre will target him early and often…he is sure to be a “hit”!

Remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS!

Hey, Do you still remember the plays Randy? Puff, Puff, PASS! That is your mistake Randy...its legal here in Cali!

Nice boob job, but you should work on the dye job...no way the drapes match the carpet

I am….

that she was stupid enough to get caught.

I would think that you would have a bagman for that kind of behavior.  You should never be caught with it.  You should not be photographed with it.  But, the drug is good enough that you cannot lay off it’s clutches.

Paris Hilton was arrested on the Las Vegas Strip late Friday after a police motorcycle officer smelled marijuana smoke wafting from a black Cadillac Escalade driven by her boyfriend, then found a small amount of cocaine in her purse.

A crowd quickly gathered when Hilton and Las Vegas nightclub mogul Cy Waits were stopped about 11:30 p.m. PDT Friday in the vehicle near the Wynn Las Vegas resort, police said.

The 29-year-old celebrity socialite was taken into the hotel “to keep her safe” during the initial investigation, police Lt. Wayne Holman said.

Police Officer Marcus Martin said the motorcycle officer pulled the Escalade over on Las Vegas Boulevard after noticing smoke that smelled like marijuana. Police later found a substance in Hilton’s purse that tests showed to be cocaine, Martin said. He didn’t say how much of the drug was found.

This dude doesn’t have a long career in Vegas is he is going to arrest moguls…

Hilton was arrested on suspicion of felony cocaine possession.

Waits, 34, was arrested on misdemeanor suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Both were booked into the Clark County jail, where Martin said Hilton was released without bail about 2:45 a.m. Saturday.

Less than an hour later, Hilton’s Twitter account was updated with a posting that said the actress was in bed watching the television show “Family Guy,” and then that she was going to sleep. It was unclear if the tweets came from her, were posted by time-release or were sent by someone else.

If convicted of the low-grade felony, Hilton would get probation. Any violation of probation would be punishable by one to four years in Nevada state prison.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger declined comment Saturday about the case.

Hilton’s attorney, David Chesnoff, told The Associated Press on Saturday morning that he was still gathering facts about the arrest.

“I caution people not to rush to judgment,” he said.

No, its okay.  I am going to rush to judgement.  She had the weed incident in South Africa during the world cup and she has been seen on camera smoking and she hangs out with cokeheads, so I am going to rush here to judge.  She is a coke head.  Fortunately, she has money, as I bet she would suck %$&@ for money, like Bob Saget.

Damn, be more DISCRETE!

Waits’ lawyer, Richard Schonfeld, said Waits posted $2,000 bail and was expected to be released Saturday.

Court appearance dates for Hilton and Waits were not immediately available.

Schonfeld said he was “troubled by the circumstances” leading to the arrest, but declined to specify his concerns.

“As the case proceeds, a lot of facts are going to come to light that will ultimately lead to exoneration,” Schonfeld said.

Hilton’s manager did not immediately respond early Saturday to telephone calls for comment. Hilton’s publicist, Dawn Miller, did not immediately return an e-mail message.

A spokeswoman for Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas declined immediate comment.

Waits and his twin brother, Jesse, are managing partners of the Tryst Nightclub inside Wynn Las Vegas, Drai’s after hours club at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon, and XS The Nightclub at Wynn’s Encore resort.

How does this dude not have a bagman?  You run one of the most popular clubs in Vegas?  All you need to do is get home or get to the club BEFORE doing your drugs.  Out in the open is foolish.

Earlier this week, Hilton was in the news when a 31-year-old man allegedly tried to break into her Los Angeles home.

Authorities have said that someone carrying two big knives banged on Hilton’s window Tuesday. She posted a photo of the arrest on Twitter and described it as “scary.” Nathan Lee Parada faces a felony burglary charge.

Hilton was arrested this summer after the Brazil-Netherlands World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on suspicion of possession of marijuana. The case was then dropped at a midnight court hearing.

Hilton pleaded no contest in 2007 to alcohol-related reckless driving and was sentenced to 45 days in jail. After spending about 23 days in jail, Hilton told CNN host Larry King that the experience caused her to re-evaluate the role partying played in her life. She said she wanted “to help raise money for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.”

While most famous for her tabloid exploits and reality TV series “The Simple Life,” Hilton has appeared in the films “Bottoms Up,””The Hottie & the Nottie” and “House of Wax.”

Damn Ronin,

look at your girl….

Law enforcement sources tell us the Seaside Heights PD busted Snooki moments ago for disorderly conduct. The details of that conduct are unclear.

We’re told Snooki — real name Nicole Polizzi — is currently in police custody.

Earlier in the day, Snooki was partying on the beach with a beer bong … only she was filling it up with Coca-Cola.  We’re told she was also seen at a local bar taking “body shots.”

wow...and what redeeming features are here?

Why is this chick making a bunch of money?  More important, why should we care?

Ole girl got some money and then it went to her head (and her gut)  The one thing that might have been attractive is lost.  Her grill was not much to look at and the big frames make her look like an old grandmother.

Looks like MTV bought into a some fake gold, fugazi as the guidettes say…

Get your prep walk down girl...

Here is another great action shot of her falling all over the place.

Ronin, what did you see in this trainwreck?

This might be the only thing that she is good for…

I bet she can fit the whole thing in her mouth...Just dont bite it...

Here is some music to ride out to Snooki…

Did she really think that she would get away with it?

She must be the best barterer (which seems like I am making words up, which I do from time to time) EVAH! Much better than this dude.

Well, at least it's a BIG red paper clip

Kyle MacDonald had a red paper clip and a dream: Could he use the community power of the Internet to barter that paper clip for something better, and trade that thing for something else — and so on and so on until he had a house?

After a cross-continental trading trek involving a fish-shaped pen, a town named Yahk and the Web’s astonishing ability to bestow celebrity, MacDonald is getting close. He’s up to one year’s free rent on a house in Phoenix.

Not a bad return on an investment of one red paper clip.

Now, a free year of rent is awesome.  But, Karen Cunagin Sypher is a lot better.  She will use anything at her disposal to get the job done.  We warned you last year to KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS. But, people didn’t listen.  Everyone kept getting caught up in drama.  The facts are coming out fast and furious.  You might wonder why I think that Karen is talented at the art of bartering.  First, you got down with Coach Pitino.  Whether it was the wine or the neck and chin, he willingly beat up the box hatless.  Second, she got money for an abortion.

Tim Sypher, 49, testified that he called clinics in Indiana and Ohio before taking the woman, then known as Karen Wise, to Cincinnati, where she terminated the pregnancy on Aug. 29, 2003. Tim Sypher said he paid for the procedure from $3,000 Pitino gave to Karen Sypher for medical care.

She was able to get medical services out of it.  For Karen, this worked two fold.  It allowed her some measure of control over Rick Pitino, and it got rid of the evidence at the same time.  There was a better than average chance that kid was part of some other persons DNA.  But, she will always be able to say that they had a lovechild that he forced her to get rid of.  She was like a sleeper cell.

Six days after the meeting at the condo, Tim Sypher drove Karen Sypher to a women’s clinic in Cincinnati, where she had an abortion. Jurors saw records from the clinic on Thursday indicating she was about five weeks pregnant. As Karen Sypher came out of the clinic, Tim Sypher said he extended his hand, prompting “a look I’ll never forget.”

“Sir, I’m not lying to you. We hit it off. It was quick,” Tim Sypher testified. “I’m not lying to you, I’m not lying to anybody here. We clicked.”

Once back in Louisville, Karen Sypher asked if she could see Tim Sypher again. The two began dating and were married less than a year later. Over the next five years, Karen Sypher attended functions around Pitino without problems, Tim Sypher said.

Until the codeword was released.  Once that happened, the plan sprung into attack! Pitino started getting calls.  The box and/or head game skills were so good, that she managed to get someone else caught up in her plan.

Jurors earlier in the week heard from Lester Goetzinger, a longtime friend and sometime sexual partner of Karen Sypher. Goetzinger said he made the calls after receiving sexual favors from Karen Sypher. He testified as part of a deal with prosecutors.

So sexual favors led him to get involved in a crime? (and by sexual favors, they mean that Goetzinger was getting domed up for making the calls.) You would think that an attorney would see right through that and not get involved…right?

Karen Sypher’s former attorney, Dana Kolter, also testified Friday, telling jurors he and Sypher had sexual relations three times before he wrote a letter to Pitino on March 22, 2009, demanding $10 million and threatening to file a lawsuit accusing Pitino of rape and forced abortion.

I guess not…

Just to be safe, if I had FACEBOOK, I would friend Jesus...

But, here is the kicker.  They were beefing over a dude who was LOCKED UP! AKON style!

You know we are not ones to hate here, but the fact of the matter is that dude must have skills with the verbs or with lying the pipe, because he had these two chicken heads sprung to the point of violence.

(07-23) 22:38 PDT Pontiac, Mich. (AP) —

A Facebook feud between two women who claimed to love the same prison inmate led to a high-speed chase and a crash that critically injured one of the rivals, killed her friend and left the second rival facing murder charges.

Torrie Emery was arraigned Friday in Pontiac’s 50th District Court on multiple felonies, as friends of the dead woman were holding a car wash to pay for her funeral.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Pontiac police Chief Valard S. Gross told The Associated Press as he described the escalating dispute that ended with Wednesday’s deadly crash. “It’s just crazy.”

FACEBOOK and Twitter beef is not cute.  It solves nothing and makes you look like a fool for putting your business out there for all to see.

I just want beef to eat....

According to Gross, Emery, 23, and Danielle Booth, 20, had been feuding for some time, leading to an earlier police complaint. According to Emery’s family, the dispute was over a 23-year-old man now serving time in a Michigan prison.

On Wednesday, Emery was driving when she saw Booth in the passenger seat of a car driven by Alesha Abernathy and started chasing her, Gross said. Emery had her 3-year-old daughter in the car with her.

How are you going to chase someone and you have your three year old daughter in the car with you?  Plus, how are you fighting over some scrub in prison, not jail, but prison?

Don't worry, he is thinking of you, or maybe Big SAL...

Police Det. Paul McDougal, who was in an unmarked squad car, saw both vehicles rush by at speeds approaching 100 mph, Gross said. Before McDougal could reach them — and while a panicked Booth was on the phone with a police dispatcher — Abernathy ran a red light and plowed into a dump truck, knocking it onto its side but not injuring the truck’s driver.

The crash killed Abernathy and critically injured Booth, who was in the intensive care unit Friday at POH Regional Medical Center in Pontiac. Emery and her daughter weren’t hurt.

It's a little too late to cry now...

“How can you get that angry or that jealous, really, that you jeopardize the life of your 3-year-old?” Gross asked. “One person’s stupidity, and look at the repercussions. It’s just a ripple effect.”

Emery appeared on video at her arraignment Friday on charges of second-degree murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm and child abuse. She indicated she would look for a lawyer.

Judge Preston Thomas ordered her jailed without bond and set her preliminary examination for next Thursday.

“We apologize to the family about what happened,” Emery’s aunt, Tamika White, said after the hearing. “This Facebook stuff is just a mess. They’re going on Facebook about a guy that neither one have — that’s in the penitentiary.”

“My sister didn’t mean to kill anybody,” said Traynea Emery, 19.

But, why is your sister and your niece so stupid?  What was she going to do when she got up to them?  Fight her?  Shout at her?  Those are all adult things to do. (sarcasm intended) Regardless of intent, she is still dead and she threatened the life of her child.  Now, she is going to be in prison without her child, family of the scrub she was beefing over.  Its Real Life When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong

Across town in the parking lot of Pete’s Coney Island restaurant, a group of Abernathy’s friends were holding a car wash to raise money for the funeral they said Abernathy’s family couldn’t afford.

“She was the center of attention,” said Brittany Carriti, 22, of Pontiac, a former classmate from Manley Alternative High School in Waterford. She and her friends had raised several hundred dollars by midday.

Abernathy was “always the one for whom the party started,” said another ex-classmate, Chandra Tiernan, 23, of Waterford.

While Abernathy knew about the dispute between Booth and Emery, she wasn’t involved in it, Tiernan said.

“She died over someone else’s problem,” Tiernan said.

(This version CORRECTS 5th paragraph to reflect that Emery, not Gross, had her child in the car with her.)

Just the tip, just for a minute...

Lindsey is only in this movie for a hot minute and of course, she has a nude scene in it.  It clearly will not be a Two Mules for Sister Sara moment… She is going to be reduced to these types of roles unless she gets her act together.

Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to shocking and judging by stills and posters recently released for her next movie the troubled starlet intends to keep fanning the flames of controversy.

A new poster for Machete, directed by Robert Rodriguez, shows Lohan posing as a nun, in full habit, licking the barrel of a gun.

A still from the movie has also been released showing Lohan’s character, The Sister, pointing a handgun at the camera.

Robert Rodriguez was clutch in the movie El Marachi, so I am obviously going to give this movie a look-see.  But, really, for the other actors. De Niro, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal are in the movie and they will make it worth bootlegging.

Is it wrong for me to suggest that I have some for her to "play"with?

This is a female tennis player that I will always have a fondness for, because she was a party girl.  One thing that will stick with me is that when she burst on the scene, I was 18-19 years old. One day, during a BBQ over my friends house, someone in the peanut gallery threw out a “tight muffin” hoot on one of her returns.  At the time, she was 14-15 years old, and it was made the commenter had a death wish, “pound you in the ass”  prison desire with remarks like that.

As she grew to be of age, the comment always stuck with me, and became one that was fitting.  Throw in the party time atmosphere, and she was someone that I would root for in a hypothetical sense.  Looking at the headlines, I would think positively on success and root against whoever beat her.  Now, I am rooting to beat the “accidental overdose”. ESPN reports the story today

Monday, June 28, 2010

Former tennis star Jennifer Capriati was recovering Monday from an accidental overdose of prescribed medication, a family spokeswoman said.

The 34-year-old Capriati, once ranked No. 1 in a career sidetracked by personal troubles, was in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery, spokeswoman Lacey Wickline told The Associated Press. She declined to identify the medication.

Capriati was rushed to a South Florida hospital early Sunday morning, she said. Wickline would not say how Capriati was found or who called emergency services.

“In response to an outpouring of concern and support shown by Jennifer’s fans and friends worldwide, we would like to acknowledge that Jen is recuperating at a South Florida hospital from an accidental overdose of medication prescribed to Jen by her personal physician,” Wickline said. “Jen is recovering fully and stably.”

The Capriati family asks that you respect our privacy at this time. As we will provide updates when available,” she added.

Public records show Capriati owns a condo on Singer Island in Palm Beach County, Fla. Riviera Beach police and Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, which oversee the area, did not have a record of what happened. Nearby hospitals did not have a patient listed under Capriati’s name.

Celebrity website TMZ first reported that Capriati was hospitalized.

At Wimbledon, Venus and Serena Williams paused after wins Monday to extend their concern.

“I probably will definitely see how that goes and pray for everyone involved,” Serena Williams said. “If there’s any way I can do anything to help, reach out, I definitely will do that.”

Added Venus Williams: “I remember her match against Monica in the semifinals of the [French] Open. I remember watching that and just thinking how great that tennis was. So definitely a lot of fond memories just watching her growing up, and obviously even playing against her, respecting her game so much.”

Capriati won three majors — two Australian Opens, one French Open — and a gold medal in the 1992 Olympics. She also was the youngest semifinalist at the French Open in 1990, when at age 14 she lost to eventual champion Monica Seles.

But the child prodigy burned out of tennis and retired several times from a game she had been pushed to play nearly her entire life.

She was arrested in 1993 for shoplifting at a Florida mall, and again in 1994 for marijuana possession. She came back strong several times, however, from personal issues and injuries.

Capriati reached the U.S. Open semifinals in 2003, losing to Justine Henin. She failed to gain any momentum from that run, and soon faded from the game again.

Here is to you getting it back together and getting in charge of the problem.
