WILL SMITH and his co-star of the movie Focus, Margot Robbie, reportedly got a little frisky at a New Orleans party last month and some salacious photo booth pictures are about to hit the tabloids. Star magazine says Margot nuzzled Smith behind the curtain of the photo booth, suggestively lifting her shirt and exposing her bra as Will lifted his and pressed his bare chest against her. An eyewitness said, "Once they pulled the curtain back to take the pictures, they let their inhibitions run wild, laughing, hugging and nuzzling each other in the dark." Wife JADA PINKETT-SMITH wasn't at the party and she's made some appearances without him and without her wedding ring lately. However, despite all that, Us Weekly says everything is still intact in the Smith household and the photo booth incident was just 'goofing around.'

You'll remember the story from earlier this week about the man in New Mexico that was pulled over on a routine traffic stop and was then forced to go through all sorts of body cavity searches because they thought he had drugs. It's now reported that another man experienced the same humiliation by the same police department after another routine traffic stop and was taken to the same hospital as the first motorist for the same procedures and, like in the first case, no drugs were found. It turns out it was also the same drug sniffing dog in both instances, but his certification to be a drug dog expired in April 2011. K-9s need yearly re-certification courses and this dog reportedly had false alerts in the past. Also in trouble are the doctors from the hospital where the men were forced to undergo the searches and they could lose their medical licenses. The police officers involved are also being investigated.
