Former Miss Kentucky Accused Of Smuggling Weed To Boyfriend In Prison

Love will make you do some crazy things.

According to NY Daily News –A former Miss Kentucky USA is accused of attempting to smuggle drugs to a man serving time in an Ohio prison.

When Kia Hampton walked into the Allen Correctional Institution back in May, officers had already gathered enough evidence to obtain a warrant for a cavity search after listening to series of recorded phone calls, the Courier-Journal reported.

Hampton, amid questioning from officers at the prison, reached into her pant leg and pushed a white balloon out onto the floor. Officers later determined she’d been attempting to smuggle about 2.82 grams of marijuana into the Allen County facility for inmate Jeremy Kelly, according to the newspaper.

The former beauty pageant contestant was arrested the same day and indicted earlier this month. 

The 28-year-old faces one count of “illegal conveyance of drugs of abuse onto the grounds of a specified governmental facility.”

It’s a third-degree felony that comes with a three-year prison sentence.

Hampton in November 2010 was crowned Miss Kentucky USA at the age of 21. She was the first African American selected to represent Miss Kentucky in the Miss USA Pageant.

Maryland Man Lights House On Fire To Get Rid Of Lice

So say what now?

According to Fox 5 San Diego:

An attempt to get rid of an annoying pest lands a Maryland man in jail.

Raymundo Ravelo is accused of trying to set his home on fire to kill lice.

Ravelo reportedly tried chemicals and powders, but said they didn’t work. Police say he couldn’t afford a professional exterminator, so the 54-year-old got drunk and poured gasoline around his rental home.

When his family asked what he was doing, Ravelo said he was going to set it on fire and quote “let it burn a bit.”

Ravelo was arrested for attempted arson and could face 40-years in prison.

Wow.. 40 years!

Georgia Church Car Jacker Arrested After Police Chase

Anyone who commits crimes on church grounds does not deserve a place to breathe in the free world. That’s just my personal opinion.

Lock these kind of people up away from the general population and toss the keys.


Channel 2 News (Atlanta):

The Alpharetta Police Department confirmed with Channel 2 Action News that a carjacking happened at a church Friday evening.

Police said Jason Taratoot, 31,  held the victim at gunpoint and stole a green Kia Soul at St. James Methodist Church.

An officer spotted the vehicle driving southbound on Georgia 400, and when Taratoot refused to stop, a short vehicle pursuit started.

The suspect attempted to run away, but was stopped by a police canine.

“Our investigation revealed the captured suspect was a wanted fugitive out of Cherokee County,” the department posted on its Facebook page.

The suspect faces numerous felony charges, including aggravated assault, theft of a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen firearm.

No one was hurt and the suspect is now in jail, according to officials.

The video is taken from the 50 Yard Line, a sports bar and grill in South Fulton County she was at just an hour and a half before she was murdered.

In the video, Dangerfield is shown entering the bar then two hours later she’s seen walking out, disappearing into the parking lot.

Her mother Yolanda Dangerfield:

“She didn’t deserve that at all. You just have to know her. She was the sweetest person you’d ever want to meet.” 

It is unclear whether Dangerfield’s transgender identity was a factor in her murder.

Regardless of the motive, her family wants the killer caught.

Dangerfield’s aunt Alesa, said:

“Whoever did that they’re wrong for that. I want justice, I want justice”

Atlanta Rapper Yung Mazi Shot & Killed In Atlanta

Aspiring rapper Jabril Abdur-Rahman, aka “Yung Mazi” was shot and killed leaving Urban Pie Pizza in the Kirkwood area of Atlanta over the weekend.

“Mazi,” the son of a former Dekalb County school teacher, practiced the Islamic faith, and had survived 2 previous shootings, one of which he was shot over 10 times. Following a previous assassination attempt, one of the bullets struck him in the head, and he had to learn to walk and talk again.

The 31-year old father and associate of New Orleans rapper, Kevin Gates, was known throughout Atlanta for his flashy flamboyant “hot boy” persona.

True to dope boy fashion he made no qualms about his love for his cars, jewelry and money and often flashed his ill gotten  riches on social media while taunting his “haters” and presumed enemies.

On the day of his murder, he posted a live video of him and his young daughter at an Atlanta area mall. This would be the last IG live post he made.

According to people inside the restaurant, Mazi was ambushed and shot in the face and chest at least 9 times while walking to his white Mercedes Benz at roughly 9pm on Sunday night. He was carrying a box of pizza.

As I said when Bankroll Fresh was murdered, the streets know exactly who killed Yung Mazi.

As of now the internet streets have not identified the shooter but I have ran across a few comments sections that finger another Atlanta rapper as putting a “hit” out on Yung Mazi. He had quite the reputation in the streets as a “finesser” and the commentor suggested that his finessing had ran its course. Since there is no solid evidence and we don’t dry snitch, I will keep that information to myself until more facts are confirmed.

Fortunately and unfortuntely, we live in the social media fame seeking world of clout so don’t be surprised if the the shooter eventually came out and admitted to the killing.

Check out the full story on Fox 5 Atlanta.

So sad to see another young brother succumb to black on black street violence. I am sure his family is deeply wounded. It’s always the families that suffer the hardest.

Friends of Mazi’s said that he was a deeply conflicted young man mourning the loss of two of his siblings. He had previously lost his younger brother in a tragic car accident as well as his sister in what appeared to be some sort of hate crime. He regularly expressed his grief ridden pain on social media, even boldly stating at times that his desire was to die so that he could “be with his sister and brother again.”

In one video he begged shooters not to shoot him in the legs and “aim for something else” if they really wanted to do him a favor.

Tell your shooters to start aiming for some sh-t that’s going to kill somebody. My legs are tired of this shit!

Tragic.

His obituary was posted online. Click here and here to view.

There’s an old saying that unfortunately continues to ring painfully true no matter how heavy you are in the streets:

“You live by the gun, You die by the gun”
