Overnight Briefing & General Reality Check - Sep 13, 2016
September 13, 2016
Off the beaten path:
It seems like a match made in heaven, but actor KEVIN BACON has turned down a very special request.
The town of Brattleboro, Vermont, invited Kevin to be their special guest at this year's Baconfest celebration. The event features anything and everything you can think of related to the savory pork meat strips. Kevin sent out a tweet along with a video message Monday expressing his regrets. Bacon says he's not available to attend the third annual festival because he's in Vancouver filming a movie.
Brattleboro residents may have found a replacement, though. Pictures have been popping up online featuring locals posing with a life-sized Kevin Bacon cutout. (Still)
Sucks to be you:
Poor MICK JAGGER ain't too thrilled about changing diapers at the age of 73. Sources tell the NY Post's Page Six gossip column that the ROLLING STONES icon "hasn't responded" to friends who have sent him congratulations and is said to be "unhappy" he'll be in his 80's when the upcoming arrival wants to play catch. The rocker is expecting his eighth child with ballerina MELANIE HAMRICK, word is they were never in a serious relationship and she's over four decades his junior at just 29. (Lee)
Now that BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN has written a memoir, he's taking it on tour. He'll do book signings for "Born To Run" which comes out on September 27th. First stop is the Barnes & Noble right down the road from his house in Freehold, New Jersey, on the 27th, with stops in nine cities through October 10th. Hopefully, it won't take four hours to get your book signed.
FYI: As of last night, just about all of The Boss's bookstore appearances are sold out. He's not going to perform or even speak! You show up, get a pre-signed copy of the book, which you have to buy there, get a look at Bruce then get sent home. (Marino)
Oh those first days of school! Lunches, crushes, new clothes ...and getting tased.
Deputies in Florida were called to Leesburg High School for a fight between two girls. A cellphone video of the brawl shows the two students getting into it on the school's track outside, while teachers and resource officers stood nearby.
When officers arrived, they gave the girls several verbal commands to stop fighting, which the girls simply ignored. Then, both girls ended up being Tased before the deputies were able to gain control of them and stop the fight.
Just after the girls were subdued, a man described as "6-foot 2-inches, over 200 pounds" threatened the deputy saying, "I'm going to kill you." He was arrested for threatening an officer. Both girls were charged with breach of peace and resisting arrest.
By the way, the fight originally started over a boy. (Myers)
