Don King Aide Investigated for Alleged Rape

2/26/2010 3:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Don King An associate of Don King is under police investigation for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl at the boxing promoter's home in Florida.

The associate -- 36-year-old Craig Jones -- was questioned by Lantana police after a 13-year-old girl told cops Jones picked her up off the street, drove her to Don King's home and raped her on the night of February 11.

Shortly after the alleged incident, cops questioned Jones -- who denied raping the girl. But according to the police report, the guy "changed his story" during questioning.

Cops took the alleged victim to undergo a medical exam -- which showed that she had recently engaged in sexual activity.

According to the report, Jones told cops he was arrested for allegedly raping a minor roughly 10 years ago -- but pled out to a lesser charge.

Don King has not been accused of any wrongdoing and no charges have been filed against him.

Calls to Don King Productions were not returned.

Live tmz fed Friday 02_26_10 “‘THIS IS A FUNCTIONING NEWS ROOM” so sayeth Harvey Levine.

WELL THEN HL, WHY NOT HIRE FUNCTIONING (THE FUNCTIONAL EQUIVALENT OF) J-school trained REPORTERS?


WHATS UP WITH THIS: IS THE REASON TMZ DOES NOT USE NO BY-LINES ON

STUFF PUT UP AT THE SITE TO SHIELD TMZ EMPLOYEES FROM INDIVIDUAL

LIABILITY . IS IT YOUR BELIEF THAT BY KEEPING THE ‘AUTHOR’ TRANSCRIBER

OF A TMZ POST ANONYMOUS, THAT YOU ARE ENSURING THE ANONYMITY OF

YOUR SOURCES? OR ARE TMZ WORKERS TOO EMBARRASSED TO BE IDENTIFIED

WITH THE STUFF THEY PUT UP ON THE SITE?


02-26-10 live tmz feed RE M KORS’ BATHING SUIT PIC

It appears from pic that PROJECT RUNWAY judge has at least ONE obvious post-op comp – he’s about 50 pounds overweight.

More to the point, wouldn’t ya think a completive media-savvy guy whose biz is alla’bout image, LOOKIN’ HOT AND LOOKING GOOD - WOULDN’T AT LEAST HAVE THE INCLINATION (?) TO CONCEAL & COVER UP HIS (ADMITTEDLY HIDEOUS LOOKING) U.I?

or else, why doesn’t Michael Kors, the FAMOUS clothing designer design a swim suit for men who have this condition? duh.

MIKE, YOU ARE NOT A MEDICAL IGNORAMUS, ARE YOU? “LOOKS LIKE A GUN SHOT WOUND.”

Didn’t you READ THE VIEWERS POST on this pic before you mouthed off ? There are viewers’ who immediately recognized & told you folks that its an umbilical hernia – nota outie bb. (The academic equivalent of not doing your homework on daily basis before class…)


MIKE: here’s the 4- 1- -1 on U.I.
Beware mikey the way you own ‘Kevin-Smith-in-denial” weight gains are ballooning kiddoe, you’re a candidate for this and other self-induced morbid obesity conditions. Are you waiting-weighting for when your wife gives birth and you weigh almost 400lbs! (And can’t even lift you infant?)

AN U.I. IS PAINFUL CONDITION – AND UMBILICAL HERNIA CAN BE A POTENTIALLY FATAL MEDICAL CONDITION. For example, 80% of resistance training must not be done when a person has a surgically unrepaired – OR UN-RERPAIRABLE – U.I. Crunches are not Rx!

EVERYONE with a U.I always is at risk for PERITONITIS (rupture of large intestine colon, etc)

While there is there is a surgical fix> under full anesthesia, opening up the abdomen, sewing a flap/ patch to apply pressure to push the u..i. back inside & under the sub-cutanious layers of belly skin its not anywhere close to in-and-out-in-a-day fat sucking lip. Typically, that excess belly fat that’s mitigating against the surgical repair cannot be just suctioned & cut away either, the fat has got to be shrunken infernally (starved) at a cellular level.


BUT SURGICAL REPAIR OF AN U.I IS A SEMI-RISKY OPERATION., ESPECIALLY POST -OP THE FLAP CAN RUPTURE, PULLING AWAY MORE INTACT SKIN & TISSUE. Always a surgeon wants to be to predict & expect a ‘best practices’ outcome with this type of surgery.

At least the reasonable expectation of good outcome of 90% - 95%. Often, this is not possible, due co-morbidity where a U.I, is not the primary presenting complaint. Often the key individual physiological fact cautioning against surgical repair is DUE TO OBESITY or other secondary & collateral medical conditions are present to mitigate surgery.

Then too, a flap can break 2-3 years after surgical repair even after judicious weighing the risks from short term & long term post-op complications.

Hey! Whoopi Goldberg! If you have any sense of fairness, now you MUST go on the air and say you forgive this rape because it wasn't really "Rape Rape".

Whoopi, are you listening? Does this one count as "Rape Rape" (your words), or does that copout only work for your Erudite Hollywood Insider Friends like Roman Polanski?

My gosh, rape is a serious issue. Whoopi, how could you poison the topic in that way?

@8, Reese:

Right on. This is an excellent double-blind study, eh?

Whoopi's response to Polanski's rape bothered me the most. Don't you think she, as the self-appointed apologist for men who rape 13yo girls, needs to jump into full spin control for this guy too?

Anything less would be hypocritical.

Uhm, 13 yr old girl was just hanging out in the street? Riiiiight. If so, every pedophile in a 50 mile radius wants that street corner.
