chalk up yet another case of an " E " level
celebrity going unnoticed in the windy city.

in the unlikey event he was a bigger name
on the bulls and did NOT look like a rasta,
they would have let him go upon recognition.

This is to let you know that there will be a major boycott of your
networks & sponsors if you pick up and/or air any show that the Bollea aka Hogan
family are a part of. This is based on the just released audio
conversations Mr. Bollea had with his incarcerated son placing blame
on the victim of the tragic car wreck that Nick Bollea (who was drunk
courtesy of his father who purchased the alcohol for his minor child)
caused. It also shows they have no remorse for what has happened to
John Graziano (the victim) & their only concern is for their own
financial gain.
This notice is also being placed on TMZ's website for others to
follow suit.
Thank you

Some cop wanted to get his name in the paper. Busted for carrying a 'brown liquid" in a cup. He wasn't driving, he was walking...in most cases a reasonable cop would tell him to ditch the drink and get home...instead, they hauled him down to the police station for a "brown liquid"...half of the college students in America could be hauled in....this was bogus. Marijuana? 3/4 of America has smoked pot at one time or another
