Ron Artest will remain Ron Artest for at least 3 more weeks, because a judge just ruled there will be no Metta World Peace until Ronnie clears up his outstanding traffic ticket warrants.
Ron's name change petition went before a judge this AM, but hizzoner said he would not grant Ron's request because Ron is a scofflaw.
The new hearing is set for September 16. We're guessing Ron has the cash.
World Peace Delayed
Due to Traffic Tickets!
