George Zimmerman was assaulted in a restaurant in Sanford, Florida over the weekend, by a customer who took offense to him allegedly bragging about the killing of Trayvon Martin. Despite him having been the victim in the violent exchange, according to a Seminole County Sheriff's Office report, witnesses who overheard the conversation before the confrontation corroborated that Zimmerman had indeed presented himself as "that guy who killed Trayvon Martin," and even showed his I.D. card, after introducing himself.
Dr. Dre was involved in a dispute outside of his Malibu residence that escalated into a run-in with the law on Monday (July 25) afternoon. According to a report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's office, deputies were called to the scene by a motorist claiming that the 51-year-old producer had pulled a gun on him. Upon the arrival of authorities, Dre was handcuffed, but a search turned up no weapon.
The incident occurred when Dre returned home but was prevented from parking due to a vehicle blocking his driveway. At his request, the stranger did move, but not without exchanging obscenities with the 51-year-old rap music legend. With the accuser allegedly continuing to mouth off, Dre reportedly pulled out his cell phone to record the taunts, at which point witnesses claim to have heard him say, "Here we go again, another black guy with a gun."
TMZ reports that the Aftermath boss was able to record the final moments of the dispute. In the absence of a supposed fire arm, deputies did not honor the man's demand that Dre was placed under citizen's arrest, but he did fill out paperwork. That driver's report is in the process of being reviewed by the D.A. to determine whether there is substantial evidence to make a case.

In a video posted to Cam'ron’s Instagram on Monday captioned, “Part 1 #LosingWeight3 #KS2#TheSequel Just warming up.” The rapper goes in, in true Killa fashion detailing his life story on a verse rapping, “Whoever thought Cam would grow to grow some millions/ 101 west you should have seen my building/ 139 Park started out as children. Grew up with Big L and the dude that supposedly killed him.”
According to Cam who opens up about the murder that happened almost 20 years ago, Big L’s death was in retaliation for trying to kill the alleged shooter a week before his death.

Aldon Smith found himself in the hot seat again after a viral video is suspected to be him smoking weed. The Periscope video titled “Fire Up Session” was listed under the name “Ricky,” which features several videos clearly showing Smith speaking on camera. In this particular video, he never shows his face, but what sounds like his voice and the voice of an unknown woman can be heard as the camera shows a lit blunt.
In the video, the woman is heard telling him he shouldn’t be filming that. “You’re stupid. You’re tripping. Ni--a, they don’t know it’s me. It’s not like I put ‘Aldon Smith,'” he replies before the video abruptly cuts off.
Smith appeared to be staying out of trouble after a very rough couple of years. He spent time in rehab in 2013 and served a nine-game suspension in 2014. He was released by the San Francisco 49ers in September following his fifth arrest in five years. He pled not guilty to misdemeanor counts for hit-and-run, drunken driving and vandalism charges from the alleged Aug. 6 incident.
Smith signed with the Oakland Raiders in September. He's currently serving a one-year suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy in November. Smith is eligible to apply for reinstatement in September 2016, 60 days before the one-year anniversary of the suspension. That, however may be in jeopardy as the NFL is currently investigating if he violated the protocol of his suspension.
Smith took to his Twitter account and denied that's him in the video.
