Dr. MEHMET OZ went into hero mode over the weekend when he treated two people injured in a car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. New York Post's Page Six says the host of "The Dr. Oz Show" witnessed the single car accident Saturday night near Exit 6 in South Jersey. Emergency responders said Oz helped stabilize one person's spine and helped the emergency services crew when they arrived on the scene.
Westampton Township emergency services chief JASON CARTY said Oz was "very helpful and very thorough, a lot of help to our crew. It obviously was a surprise for them to get on scene and see a TV celebrity helping out the injured people." The two victims were both hospitalized with minor injuries. (Bartha)
At the local Cop Shop:
Police in northwestern Massachusetts are advising people not to get drunk and chase wild bears.
The North Adams Police Department confirms a man was taken into custody after allegedly chasing black bears through the woods with a dull hatchet. The department used their Facebook page to remind locals that such activities are "strongly not advised." The inebriated "hatchet man" in question was taken into protective custody. (Still)
The Hollywood rumor mill:
Warner Brothers is reportedly doing another movie in "The Fugitive" series. The Los Angeles Times reports the studio already has a writer for the film, but no stars have been attached to the flick and it's not known yet whether the movie will feature new characters or continue the story of the 1993 version starring HARRISON FORD and TOMMY LEE JONES.
As you probably know, the original film was based on the 1960s ABC series, about a surgeon (played by Ford) who's wrongly accused of murdering his wife trying to find the one-armed killer while trying to evade the police. The original film made around $369 million worldwide box office and earned Tommy Lee an Oscar for best supporting actor.
