George Zimmerman helps rescue family from car wreck

George Zimmerman, the man whose acquittal on murder and manslaughter charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin set off a wave of protests across the nation, helped rescue a family from an overturned SUV four days after the verdict, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement on monday.

The statement said that on Wednesday, at approximately 5:45 p.m. ET, the sheriff’s office responded to a single car accident at an intersection in the Sanford, Fla., area not far from where Zimmerman, 29, shot Trayvon, 17, in February 2012. The statement said a blue Ford Explorer had run off the road and rolled over with a family of four inside.

When a deputy arrived at the scene, two men had already helped the family out of the SUV. One of the men was Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch coordinator in Sanford.

“Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy,” the statement said. There were no reports of injuries, it said.

A jury of six women acquitted Zimmerman, who pleaded self-defense, of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges July 13. That set off protests across the nation, highlighted by “Justice for Trayvon” rallies held Saturday in more than 100 cities.

New Music From Beyonce: Bow Down / I Been On (Audio)

Beyonce is letting someone know how she really feels.  The Queen released a new single entitled “Bow Down” Sunday night where she raps and swears quite a bit.

Whether or not the song ends up on her album, it is certainly a fire starter, and different from anything we’ve ever heard on any of her previous albums.

The “Bow Down” section — produced by Hit Boy, who also handled the controversial Jay-Z & Kanye West hit “In Paris,” with its spacey synths and driving beat — features Beyoncé singing sweetly,

“I know when you were little girls you dreamt of being in my world. Don’t forget it. Respect that. Bow down [expletive].”

She gets a bit fiercer as she refers to husband Jay-Z,

“I took my time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife. Don’t get it twisted, this is my [expletive].”

The song then shifts into a grand operatic piece that has been used in commercials previewing her upcoming “Mrs. Carter World Tour” and then moves into the “I Been On” bit of the clip, which features Bey rapping over a beat that’s in the chopped-and-screwed style from her hometown of Houston, with her voice altered to make it sound like a man.

In the rap, she boasts, like countless rappers,

“I been on, I been on, tell me who gon’ take me off.”

However, she gets more personal as the song goes on, representing Houston and talking of her past, offering shoutouts to Willie D of the Geto Boys and UGK, even delivering a bit of UGK’s “Something Good.”

Is this the return of Sasha Fierce?  Pop the hood to listen to Bey’s new song Bow Down/I Been On..

Hot or Garbage??

The rapper made the arrest known on Saturday with a series of tweets suggesting that he was a victim of racial profiling.

Hammer (who was born Stanley Kirk Burrell) was reportedly sitting in a car outside a shopping center in Dublin, a city east of Oakland, when he was approached by a police officer. “Chubby elvis looking dude was tapping on my car window, I rolled down the window and he said ‘Are you on parole or probation?'”

 “While I was handing him my ID he reached in my car and tried to pull me out the car but forgot he was on a steady donut diet…. It was comical to me until he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help (MallCop) !!! But make no mistake he’s dangerous …. only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh.”

According to the Dublin Police, Hammer was in a vehicle with expired registration, and he was not the registered owner. “After asking Hammer who the registered owner was he became very argumentative and refused to answer the officer’s questions,” police spokesman Herb Walters told CNN. Hammer was arrested on suspicion of resisting an officer and obstructing an officer in the performance of his duties; he was booked and released on bail from Santa Rita Jail, with a court date set for next month.

Hammer concluded his tweeted account of the incident by describing it as a “teachable moment” and an “eye opener.” “I will now answer his question,” he wrote. “contrary to his personal beliefs, all people of color are not on parole or probation fat boy!!!”

Hammer tell you are “2 Legit 2 quit”!

The President of Lou’s non-profit told TMZ, Lou passed away last night in West Virginia at the Charleston Medical Center following a heart-related emergency.

Lou was hospitalized in December for pneumonia but released after New Year’s. He collapsed at home a few weeks later and was hospitalized again.

Lou’s heart stopped yesterday. Doctors were able to revive him, but he fell into a coma and passed just hours later. He was 77.

And yes, his Wikipedia and IMDb pages are incorrect. We’re told he lied about his age. According to official records, Lou’s birthday was September 26, 1935. As one source put it, “You know how actors are.”

An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the official cause of death.

We’re told Lou — who served in the Army — will receive a military burial in West Virginia. He is survived by his son and his 95-year-old mother.

We offer our sincere condolences to Lou’s friends and family..
