KANYE WEST allegedly punched an 18-year-old man that tried to help KIM KARDASHIAN get past a swarm of photographers outside a Beverly Hills medical building. However, Kim was upset because the guy was hurling racial and homophobic slurs at the paparazzi. When Kim reportedly told the guy that using the n-word wasn't cool he screamed at her, "F--k you bitch...just trying to help you...Shut up [n-word] lover, stupid slut." Sources say the man continued to scream at Kim and she called Kanye on her cell phone. When he arrived, they followed the man into a chiropractor's office where Kanye punched the guy, while Kim yelled, "We have it all on tape." That may not be a good thing as the man wants to press charges and Kanye already is facing misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft charges from a run-in with a photographer last September.

Today's adventure in babysitting comes from Newport News, Virginia, where an unnamed 26-year-old woman abandoned two children she was babysitting for a now likely former friend at a Burger King. The woman then placed the friend's infant underneath a delivery van. Witnesses called police and the woman ran off into a TJ Maxx and started screaming that the store was going to blow up in seconds, before running into the back store room and climbing the shelves. The woman eventually ran out of the store and started taking off her clothes before officers were able to take her into custody. Oddly, the report made no mention of drugs, but the woman did undergo a medical and psychological exam.
