RadioOnFire.com - Video of yet another Delta Airlines discrepancy was captured on video on Tuesday, May 30, and shows a passenger being wrestled from his seat by a pair of officers who had been sent to remove him from a plane.
The footage was captured by a reporter from WTVT-TV who happened to be on the flight when the altercation ensued. She would take to Twitter to share the recording just before the plane took off at around 5:30 pm. “Man kicked off Delta flight to LGA after he yelled at another passenger, got belligerent with a flight attendant,” reporter Kellie Cowan tweeted. The Delta Flight 2646 aircraft was scheduled to head out of Tampa International Airport for LaGuardia at around 3:30 p.m., but those plans were delayed when the man allegedly blew a fit over another passenger's bag taking up the overhead compartment above his seat. He was described as "hostile" and "aggressive" by other passengers, at one point pulling the bag down and tossing it to th…

RadioOnFire.com - Kathy Griffin will need a new place to celebrate the New Years.

Tiger Had 0.00 Blood Alcohol Level But Was Still Out Of Wack

RadioOnFire.com - Details have surfaced to provide a clearer picture as to what prompted Florida police to detain Tiger Woods. It was initially assumed that the golf great was intoxicated when he was taken into custody at around 3 a.m. on Monday, May 29, as news that broke about his arrest for DUI was followed up by a viral-bound mug shot that showed him looking disheveled. Woods would later issue a statement in which he clarified that he hadn't had a drink, and was rather, suffering from the effects of a bad mix of medication. It is now confirmed that Woods' breathalyzer test indeed registered a 0.00 blood-alcohol level after he was found asleep behind the wheel of a running vehicle. Woods would still be taken in and booked, however, with officers citing that his speech was "slow, sluggish and very slurred" and that he had failed to walk a straight line or balance on one foot during roadside tests. The police report also gives an account of Woods having confused dir…

Tiger Woods Claims He Was Disoriented from Medication, Not Alcohol During DUI

RadioOnFire.com - News of Tiger Woods' DUI went viral on Monday (May 29), but the famed golf player claims that alcohol didn't play a part in him being disoriented. In a statement obtained by TMZ, Woods claimed that he was on medication at the time of his arrest. "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans. I expect more from myself, too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for their professionalism.” Tiger had back surgery for the fourth time on April 20, which wou…

Laurel Man Crashes Gate, Boards Plane At BWI Marshall

RadioOnFire.com - A Laurel man is undergoing a medical evaluation after breaching security Saturday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) police identified the man who crashed his car through a secure area at Signature Aviation as Andrew Kottke, 42. According to a witness who declined to be identified, Kottke traveled far into the airport property before being stopped by police. The witness said the breach is more serious than authorities describe, and the man may have been on the loose in a speeding car five to six minutes before being stopped. "He tried to make a run for it and they apprehended him," the witness said. "It's quite disturbing. You have many people who have families or children, as I do. Anybody could have gotten hurt anywhere around that vehicle. Nobody knew what he was doing it just seemed crazy." The witness reported seeing a 2013 Chevy Camaro entering the Signature Aviation …

Her body was found at 11:14 p.m. Friday on the 3700 block of West 36th Street, police said. Alvarado-Genao just relocated to New York in April because of a new job. She had lived in Baltimore for 10 years to help her sister, Gisel Mora, and brother-in-law, Melvin Mora, with their growing family. "(Ivelisse) is my baby sister who lived in Maryland until very recently," Gisel Mora told WBAL-TV.

In February, Alvarado-Genao married 30-year-old Gabino Genao, who, her family said, she knew from middle school. The family said they recently began learning about abusive behavior toward her.

Memorial Day Weekend Shootings Left 1 Dead and 63 Injured in Chicago

RadioOnFire.com - Following the mayhem of last year's memorial day weekend in Chicago that left 6 dead and 63 shot, authorities made a concerted effort to control the wave of violence this year, although there is still much work to be done. A 15-year old boy was killed during the Memorial Day festivities, along with 26 others who sustained gunshot wounds. Chicago Police deployed an additional 1300 officers over the weekend in an attempt to quell the violence. This comes after a string of raids late last week that sent several members of Chicago's two-six gang behind bars.

Rally Held To Honor Murdered Bowie State Student

RadioOnFire.com - Dozens gathered outside The Mall of Columbia on Sunday to honor Richard Collins III, the 23-year-old Bowie State University student and second lieutenant in the Army who was fatally stabbed on May 20. The rally was organized by NAACP's Howard County Branch. Signs of support filled the crowd as speakers took to the bullhorn with a clear message about what they believe was a hate crime. "I think it's terrorism, I think it's a hate crime and I think it should be treated as a hate crime," said Willie Flowers, the branch's president. Jenna Grant, who attended the rally, expressed concern of not taking action. "We got to start talking to our friends, our family members, our colleagues ... if we're not preventative, we're going to be reactive," she said. "We're going to stay waiting for somebody else's child to be killed, a family member, and then we're going to react." Grant added, "We're not taking actio…

City's Curfew Goal Is To Reconnect Kids With Family, Keep Them Safe From Violence

RadioOnFire.com - Baltimore enacted a city-wide curfew on Friday. The curfew, which ends in August, permits children 14 years old or younger from staying out past 9 p.m. The time for the 14 to 16 age group is 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next day. City police commissioner Kevin Davis told the Jimmy Mathis Show on Saturday morning that the objective is to keep kids off the streets and reconnect them with responsible parents and guardians. But Davis also mentioned violence being a factor in the decision. "Our homicide victims average 13 arrests a piece in their lifetime and half of our homicide victims have been arrested at one point or another for illegally carrying a gun," he said. "We have to continue to focus on the people who we know are most likely to re-offend with a gun and hurt other people." Davis added, "That strategy is always being tweaked and part of the summer curfew strategy is to make sure that we don't have young people out in the street during tim…

Lil Yachty - Teenage Emotions (ALBUM REVIEW)

RadioOnFire.com - Something about Lil Yachty makes me want to root for him. I don't know if it is the fact that the 19 year old rapper gets so much hate or the fact that he hails from my second hometown - Atlanta, Georgia. To a large degree, I feel he is an underdog, although some may not agree. He does have the backing of Quality Control Music, Capitol Records and Motown Records. Surely, many rap music underdogs would love the kind of label support Lil Yachty enjoys, but it has come with a price. 
With the level of success the 'Summer Song' rapper has seen just releasing an EP & mixtapes you would think he would be more celebrated. Lil Yachty was infamously called the 'poster child for wack rappers' and "Teenage Emotions" was his chance to prove naysayers wrong.


If nothing, Lil Yachty "Teenage Emotions" album cover is brave. Showcasing two apparently gay white males' kissing, a very overweight white girl, a punk rock girl, a girl with vit…

Ben Carson: Poverty to a Large Extent is a State of Mind

RadioOnFire.com - Ben Carson, the newly appointed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, on Wednesday during a SiriusXM interview described poverty as a "state of mind." “I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind," he said. "You take somebody who has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee you in a little while they'll be right back up there. And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they'll work their way back down to the bottom." Carson, a celebrated neurosurgeon before turning to politics, has long insisted on an ethics of individual responsibility. Earlier this month, he suggested that public housing shouldn't be too comfortable for its residents, and in March he referred to slaves as immigrants who believed in the idea of America as a "land of dreams and opportunity."

Boosie Tells NBA YoungBoy to Leave Louisiana ASAP After Release from Jail

RadioOnFire.com - Rapper NBA Youngboy was released from a Lousiana jail after being incarcerated in December 2016. The rapper was previously hit with two charges of attempted first-degree murder. Now, rapper Boosie Badazz, a fellow Louisiana native, has decided to give some advice to the budding star. Via an Instagram post, Boosie said, "Welcome home @nba_youngboy [100 emoji] Leave Br asap." The advice telling NBA Youngboy to get out of Baton Rouge ASAP may seem out of nowhere, but Boosie's past gives him a good reason to offer that advice to a young man looking to change his life. During an interview with VladTV, the rapper explained that he became a target of the court system in Louisiana due to his lifestyle and the things he spoke about. Boosie gave an example during the interview, saying, "I made songs about public officials and things like that. Those people don't forget that and I don't trust people like that. It's nothing for me to just be riding…

Netflix Cancels "The Get Down" After One Season

RadioOnFire.com - Netflix has canceled The Get Down, a hip hop drama series set in the South Bronx during the 1970s. The six-part second half of the first season was released last month. The show, which had a $120 million budget (Netflix's second most expensive series), had been bogged down in pre-production. Lengthy delays and personnel changes resulted in the decision to release the first season in two parts. Director Baz Luhrmann said he wouldn't have been able to commit to the second season full time, and that that played a key role in determining the decision to cancel the show. “This exclusivity has understandably become a sticking point for Netflix and Sony, who have been tremendous partners and supporters of the show. It kills me that I can’t split myself into two and make myself available to both productions… But the simple truth is, I make movies," he said in a Facebook post. The Get Down followed a group of South Bronx teenagers witnessing the rise of disco and …
