A Florida thug found out that money can't buy everything -- after trying to buy back the gun he dropped while trying to rob two men in a motel room.
Cedrick Mitchell barged into the room one night last week, demanding that the occupants give him some pills. When they declined, he pulled a gun and told them to hand over "everything you got."
They fought back, subduing him with pepper spray and causing him to drop his weapon. After clearing his head, Mitchell returned in a more polite mood, offering 40 bucks for the return of his gun -- only to receive a counter-offer of more pepper spray.
Officers responding to a 911 call from the men arrested Mitchell a short distance away.
Gerard Butler Out Of Rehab??? I Didn't Know He Was IN Rehab.....
So did anyone know that every ladies favorite man-candy had been in rehab for cocaine and perscription pill abuse?Gerard had been looking very thin lately. According to TMZ, the 300 star checked himself into the Betty Ford Center for treatment of cocaine and prescription pill abuse. The Scottish actor reportedly realized he was relying too heavily on prescription drugs to ease the pain from injuries he sustained while shooting 300 back in 2006, as well as injuries he suffered in a December surfing accident. As for the cocaine, sources say he had issues with the drug, but was really more concerned about his dependency on pills. Gerard checked out on Friday, and according to his manager, “he’s healthy.” In fact, Butler was spotted out in Malibu Friday enjoying lunch and reading a script.
Lambert Covers Gaga
Miranda Lambert’s On Fire Tour landed her in Greensboro, N.C. last week, where she did a smash up job of covering an artist not taken on by any other country artist until now. Miranda belted out Lady Gaga‘s ‘You and I and she adding enough of her sass and grit to make it sound like a Lambert original made famous by a pop star.
She made the song a bit more personal by changing the lyric “Nebraska guy” to “North Carolina guy,” which garnered big praise from the local audience. Then, the second time around she gave a subtle shout out to hubby Blake Shelton by changing the words to “Oklahoma guy.”
Lambert delivered such a solid and fun performance on this song that we’re left wondering if perhaps it has anything to do with her newfound friendship with the ‘Born This Way’ guise-sporting diva. After sitting beside the black veil-clad superstar at the 2012 Grammys, Lambert seemed to have a new appreciation for and friendship with Gaga. Like an excited kid on the playground who just found a new pal, Lambert tweeted “Y’all. I have a new friend! @ladygaga from NYC and a Texas girl. Who knew! She is really sweet! The odd couple… well not really!”
We don’t know how deep that friendship runs and whether or not the country star will be pulling Miss Gaga onstage with her anytime soon for a proper duet of ‘You and I,’ but her North Carolina performance was a nice tribute nonetheless.
