Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Philly

Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Philly

Holy crap, it’s cold here in Boston. Like wear a sweatshirt-over-your-pajamas cold. It also snowed here this weekend, but it was only a few inches. So unlike those wimpy cities in the south that freak over an inch, it was just fine and I went about my weekend, which was actually pretty decent. Unlike these people.

Brian Joyce

I think most of us are smart enough to know that the world of politics runs on a quid-pro-quo system. But I also think of most of us assume that those political favors are exchanged for either money or sexual favors, right? But if you’re a legislator from Massachusetts, there’s one thing more valuable: Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

Former Massachusetts State Senator Brian Joyce was charged on Friday with taking over $1 million in bribes, including a Jeep, monetary kickbacks, and hundreds of pounds of Dunkin’ coffee – 704 pounds to be precise. The 113 charges against Joyce detailed in a 102-page indictment include racketeering, extortion, wire fraud and money laundering.

Joyce, who left the state legislature early this year, pled not guilty. No word on if he was granted bail, but to be honest…if America runs on Dunkin’, he’s probably a flight risk. [via TIME]

Stephen Smith

Personally, I thought that ears were off-limited in boxing ever since the Mike Tyson/Evander Holyfield incident. But apparently, that’s not the case, if Saturday’s fight in Vegas between Stephen Smith and Francisco Vargas is any example.

After the fighters’ heads collided in the 9th round, Smith was left with a grisly cut to his left ear that almost left it ripped off.

To top off the English boxer’s tough night, the injury meant that the fight was stopped after that round, leaving the decision up to the judges, who awarded the fight to Vargas. But Smith seemed to be staying positive:

Hannibal Buress

The Christmas season is enough to drive anyone to drink, which apparently is what comedian Hannibal Buress was doing this weekend when he was arrested in Miami after he approached a cop with bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol and asked him to call an Uber. When the officers went to arrest Buress, he started yelling, “Am I under arrest? Am I under arrest?” and “Explain what I’m detained for. Explain what I’m detained for. What am I detained for?”

The Miami police department tweeted on Saturday night regarding Buress’ arrest:

R.Kelly

It’s been a pretty….shall we say interesting year for R. Kelly, since he’s been in the spotlight for both allegedly running some kind of a sex cult that recruits young women and potentially fathering secret love child with the wife of a deputy sheriff. But this time, it looks like Kelly is the victim.

The artist returned home to Atlanta this weekend after a relatively long tour to find that robbers had cleaned out both of his Georgia houses. Like, literally cleaned them out – they are totally empty. Kelly addressed the issue in two videos posted on Insta:

…Still encouraged. Still blessed.
