Ty Dolla $ign’s Pot Seized in Police Roadside Investigation

first_imgL.A. rapper/producer Ty Dolla $ign‘s (real name Tyrone Griffin) bus was pulled over by Wisconsin Police for supposed vehicle equipment violation early Wednesday morning. After smelling strong odors of marijuana coming from the bus, officers decided to conduct a roadside investigation of the bus. Dane County Sheriff’s K-9’s alerted officers to several suspect locations on the bus, which led to the seizure of 42.2 grams of marijuana, which included 18.2 grams of butane hash oil, and 28 pieces of paraphernalia.According to reports, twelve people were on the bus, with seven of those being arrested on various charges, including suspicion of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. We have a feeling Ty wasn’t feeling very “Irie” after this early morning encounter with police.Ty’s representative claims that the rapper was not on the bus, as he was taking the easier route by plane to his Iowa gig, maintaining that it was his band and entourage on the bus, though authorities claim they arrested someone going by the name Ty Dolla $ign. Will we ever know if it was Ty on the bus? This story is shrouded in mystery (or pot smoke).[via Channel3000]last_img read more

Fight against Boko Haram tops Lake Chad regional summit agenda

first_imgNiger authorities urge people to leave lake Chad island over Boko Haram scare Leaders of countries in the Lake Chad region met on Saturday in Nigeria to give fresh impetus to their fight against Boko Haram, the Nigerian presidency said.The summit meeting, grouping Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, Niger, Benin and the Central African Republic, is a follow-up to a November gathering in Chad called to tackle a surge in Boko Haram attacks in the restive region.“Today’s meeting is in continuation of our joint efforts to address the prevailing security challenges in our sub-region,” President Muhammadu Buhari said in his opening remarks.He said the meeting was “a clear demonstration of the resolute commitment that we all attach to the fight against our common enemy, Boko Haram, and the restoration of durable peace and security to our sub-region”.At the November meeting in in N’Djamena, leaders had focused on overhauling current strategy in their fight against Boko Haram, Buhari said.“This was necessitated by the resurgence of attacks, particularly on the military, and the abduction of civilians for ransom across our borders by Boko Haram with the support of international terrorists who have infiltrated our sub-region,” he said.The Nigerian leader said Saturday’s meeting “will consider the report of the committee we set up during our last summit on the way forward”, adding he hoped that its recommendations would bring a new dynamism in the fight against Boko Haram and their international affiliates.Troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Benin along with Cameroon’s are operating in the Lake Chad region in the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to counter the Islamic State-affiliated Boko Haram.Since July there has been an upsurge in Boko Haram against military bases, almost all of them in the region around Lake Chad.Last month, militants raided a base in the Nigerian village of Metele, near the border with Niger, leaving at least 44 soldiers dead, although troops who survived put the death toll at more than 100.The nine-year Boko Haram jihadist rebellion has claimed more than 27 000 lives and forced at least 1.8 million to flee their homes, sparking a dire humanitarian crisis in the region.Related 240 Boko Haram militants surrender in Chadcenter_img Lake Chad region creates joint force to fight Boko Haramlast_img read more

Tiger, McIlroy advance to knockout showdown at WGC Match Play

first_imgThe showdown of the world’s 64 top-ranked golfers at Austin (Texas) Country Club featured three days of group matches to decide 16 players for weekend knockout matches that will determine a champion.Woods, seeded 13th, will meet fourth-seeded Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland in the round of 16 on Saturday morning. They have never met in a match-play test in Ryder Cup singles or WGC Match Play competition.“I’ll be ready,” Woods said.AdChoices广告Ads by TeadsFour-time major winner McIlroy beat England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick 4&2 to complete an unbeaten sweep of his group, never trailing in any match.“I got up early and played some good golf on the front nine,” McIlroy said. “I got scrappy toward the end but I’m through and I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”“It’s exciting for the tournament. I’m sure it’s going to be exciting for us. I feel good about my game. I’m going to stick with my game plan and not look at him until I have to near the end.”McIlroy gave a nod to his final-round duel with Woods at last year’s US PGA Tour Championship, where Woods captured his 80th career US PGA victory with a final-round surge while McIlroy struggled.“I just hope I put up a better fight than I did in Atlanta last year,” McIlroy said.Former world number one Woods, a 14-time major champion, split his first two matches and needed a victory plus a loss by Brandt Snedeker to reach the weekend from his all-American group.Aaron Wise led after every hole in routing Snedeker 6&4 and Woods took care of the rest with an impressive fightback, showing the form that made him a superstar 20 years ago and helped him to WGC Match Play titles in 2003, 2004 and 2008.Woods made bogeys at the par-5 sixth and par-4 eighth to fall 2-down to Cantlay, who gave one back with a bogey at nine.Woods then reeled off three birdies and an eagle to win the next four holes for a 3-up edge, sinking a 21-foot birdie putt at the par-3 11th and a six-footer at the par-5 12th, then holing out from 82 yards for eagle at the par-4 13th and curling home a 20-foot birdie putt at the par-4 14th.“Patrick got a bad break at nine. I got a free hole there,” Woods said. “I tried to carry the momentum to the back nine. I made a big putt at 11 and got it rolling from there.”At 13, he bounced his approach onto the green and saw the crowd erupt as the ball rolled into the cup.“I was just trying to get it up close and next thing you know it falls in,” Woods said. “I’ll take it.”Sweden’s Henrik Stenson, seeded 37th, won three of the first four holes and never trailed in completing an unbeaten run through his group with a 5&4 win over previously unbeaten US 52nd seed Jim Furyk.last_img read more
