JONAH HILL is apologizing for using what he now calls a "disgusting" homophobic slur. Last weekend when a photographer asked about his outfit, Hill shouted at him: "Suck my d**k, you f*ggot!" Hill now says, "This is a heartbreaking situation for me. I am not at all defending my choice of words but I am happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say. I think I'm good at making movies, [but] I am not good at being a famous person. What I said in that moment was a disgusting and hurtful term. I should have said either nothing or just, 'F**k you'." He added: "It would break my heart for anyone to think, especially with all the work that I've done and all the loved ones I have, that I would be against anyone for their sexuality." Hill also said that he "grew up with gay family members." (See incident here-careful of language)

- We're finding out more about those two 12-year-old Wisconsin girls that allegedly stabbed another 12-year-old girl 19 times and left her for dead in the woods.

The girls are being charged as adults.

West Palm Beach police responded to a 911 call made by 49-year-old Carlos Bueno Mir. When officers arrived, Carlos appeared intoxicated and told them that his wife had "thrown out his beer." The officers advised Carlos that this wasn't an emergency and was told to not call 911 unless there was an actual need. Yes, Carlos called 911 again and began yelling that a female outside had broken into two of his beers. Carlos would go on to call 911 a total of seven times during the span of four hours and likely would've called several more times had he not been arrested for misuse of the 911 system and making a false report.
