on

There has been constant series of unfortunate events in Meek mill’s life for the two years. Crushed in a beef with drake he could not keep up with and the recent separation with long time girlfriend Nicki Minaj, the rapper ends up bagging up another headline concerning last december’s shooting in Oakdale. Two men were killed and another two injured after gunfire erupted outside a his concert in Wallingford, Connecticut few days before New years eve. Grieving, The family of one of the New Haven man who was shot and killed following a show decided to file a lawsuit last Tuesday against the venue and, the rapper.

Travis Ward was gunned down in the parking lot of the Wallingford facility on Dec. 30, 2016 as he was celebrating his 31st birthday with his family. Jaquan Graves, 20, also from New Haven was also killed. No arrests have been made.

Two others were injured including Nathan Mitchell, who also is a party in the lawsuit filed in Waterbury Superior Court by New Haven attorney Joel Faxon. Mitchell and Ward did not know each other.

The lawsuit alleges that Oakdale and concert promoters didn’t provide enough security or take measures to control the crowd even though they were aware other Meek Mill’s concerts had ended in gun violence.

“With song titles like ‘body count’ and ‘oh kill’em’ that praise indiscriminate killing and mayhem, the potential for tragic incidents like this should have been properly anticipated and planned for by Meek Mill, his concert promoters and the Oakdale Theatre,” Faxon said Tuesday.

The lawsuit seeks more than $15,000 in damages. Ward was shot several times and died at the scene. He had attended the concert with family members celebrating his birthday. Mitchell was shot once in the right side.

The lawsuit claims that security for the concert was “grossly understaffed” and since the shooting Oakdale has significantly increased security but “far too late for Ward,” the lawsuit said.

Meek Mill is a well-known rap artist. Violence has broken out at other concerts of his. In both Danbury and Wilmington, Del. there were shootings outside of the concert venue once the show ended.

“The venue security was grossly understaffed and ill-equipped to deal with the hazardous environment presented by any Meek Mill concert,” Faxon said. “A strong police presence was required. They were innocent bystanders who ended up in a war zone.”

The shooting occurred moments after the concert ended as people exited into the parking lot. Ward was apparently caught in the crossfire as shots rang out. Faxon said there was no evidence he was targeted and Ward didn’t have a weapon.

Wallingford police interviewed several people who were at the concert with the victims. State Police recovered several shell casings but no weapons were found.

Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, had been under house arrest for violating probation for the fourth time in eight years for a gun and drug conviction. Mill, who grew up in Philadelphia, lost his father and a cousin to gun violence.

A video posted on YouTube appears to show Meek Mill leaving the Oakdale when a shot is fired.

“Look, there’s Meek,” a male voice says, and then the shot is heard. A security guard approaches the person shooting video and tells him and his friends to get down.

NFL Fines Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 For Taunting Tyreek Hill During Super Bowl

Published

on

The NFL has fined Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back Antoine Winfield Jr. $7,815 for taunting Kansas City Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill during the Super Bowl, earlier this month. Winefield explained that the taunt was revenge for all the times Hill had done the same move to receivers throughout the season, including against the Bucs during their Week 12 matchup earlier in the year.

”The taunting, it was something I had to do,” Winefield said after the Super Bowl. “When we played them earlier (Tyreek)Hill went off on us. He back-flipped in front of my face and gave me the peace sign. So it was only right I gave him the peace sign right back. It felt amazing to be able to do that”

Hill torched the Bucs for 269 yards and three touchdowns during Week 12, but in the Super Bowl, he was held to just 73 yards. Winfield threw Hill’s taunt back at him with 4:06 remaining after successfully defending a fourth-down pass.

The New York Mets have once again invited former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to join their spring training roster. Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, first returned to professional baseball in 2016. He’s been invited back to join the Mets for spring training each of the last four years.

In 34 games with the Mets, Tebow has batted .151 and hit his first home-run last spring.

In 2019, Tebow said he’s still optimistic regarding his hopes of making it to the major league: “That would obviously be something that would be special, and I think another part of the dream,” Tebow said. “Part of it’s just playing every day and enjoying it and competing, which I love. Obviously, that would be awesome. It would be a lie if I said that wouldn’t be super cool. … But I wouldn’t say it would be a success or failure if that did or did not happen.”

“Over the past 11 years there were promises made to protect and portray my story, with the authenticity and honesty I gave. I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid. I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair. I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored,” she says, blaming the executives at WeTV. “However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”

Her lengthy message explains all that she went through as a member of the entertainment industry and how it took a toll on her as a person. She concludes by saying that what happened on July 16 was her “attempt to end my pain and my life.”
