Martin Tremblay, a youth hockey coach in British Columbia, has been sentenced to 15 days in prison for tripping a 13-year old opponent during his team’s post-game handshake exchange.
The incident (below) took place in July, with one of the two victims who fell to the ace actually breaking his wrist upon impact.Youth Hockey Coach Trips Players
In November, the 48-year old coach pleaded guilty to one count of assault, with his attorney saying Tremblay was not taking his anti-depressant medication when the tripping took place.

Throwing everything against the wall in hopes that something will stick, Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney says she is going to seek help – and devote time and money to helping others.
Mark Heller, filed a motion requesting that Lohan’s probation-violation case be put on the “slow track” so she can pursue “certain activities which will benefit her.”
Ones which will make her a “productive and responsible contributor to society.”
We just have to ask: Does he know who his client is?
Heller says this multifaceted plan includes psychotherapy sessions, public-service efforts and a proposalMore >
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had their “White Party Pooper” or was that just Adrienne Maloof leaving her mark on all the furniture. We recap the bad tans and good nose jobs in our THG +/- review.
I’ve got to call bs when I see it. Did anyone else notice that during Kyle and Kim’s conversation with Taylor they switched phones? First they’re talking on a white phone, then an all silver one and then back to the white with no explanation. Yet it was all edited together to look like one long phone call.
Minus 12. I know it’s TV but that kind of editing leaves me wondering howMore >
Our national nightmare will not end for at least another three months.
The day after Kris Humphries’ lawyer peaced out on his client and also trashed Humphries for claiming he can annul his marriage to Kim Kardashian, a judge has set a trial date for this pair to finally hash it all out.
They will meet in court on May 6.
Kardashian’s attorney fought for a date next month, but nothing was available until well into the spring.
By now, everyone (unfortunately) knows the particulars:
- Kris and Kim were married for 72 days.
- Kim has been pushing for a divorce for well over a
Only The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills could turn a civilized tea party into the “Game of Scones” but then again, it’s not like they were drinking tea.
We break down the lies, cries, and alcohol infused innuendo on THG’s +/- recap!
Before we get to the tea party, let’s talk closets. It’s the battle of the walk in closets and Kyle was the big loser. Minus 12.
Her clothes were overflowing and she had a cheap clothes rack she wheeled into the hallway. I expected more from a Beverly HIlls Housewife.
On the other hand, Lisa was the big winner. Her new home was absolutelyMore >
Chris Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos is far from pleased with the L.A. County District Attorney’s allegation that the star lied about doing community service.
In his official response to the D.A.’s scathing motion, Geragos hits back hard, claiming that prosecutors omitted key facts and implying they are out to get Chris.
Brown is accused of falsifying reports, but Geragos refutes claims that “no human being ever witnessed” Chris performing the required community service.
On the contrary, Geragos claims the deputy police chief in Richmond, Va., personally “observed Brown workingMore >
Needing a break from her latest legal troubles, and always looking to save money when she’s broke, Lindsay Lohan jetted off to Dubai with mom Dina Lohan.
Not before the star and her belongings were searched at LAX, however.
Lohan was stopped by TSA agents at LAX’s security gate, who then proceeded to rifle through her Louis Vuitton bag, among other carry-on luggage.
Somewhat astonishingly, she was allowed to go on her way!
Good thing, too, because she can scarcely afford any legal trouble. She’s so far in the hole now, it’s a small wonder she has a roof over her head.
Amanda Bynes, threatened with eviction by her landlord for breaking rules and being disrespectful toward others, packed up and left her NYC apartment last week.
According to reports, Bynes got a letter from management in January explaining that her lease would be terminated (presumably February 1, when she left).
Reason: She’s a pothead.
Management made the decision to evict following complaints of marijuana smoke emanating from Amanda Bynes‘ apartment “morning, noon and night.”
Sources say she was also seen smoking weed in the halls.
It’s a non-smoking building, like mostMore >
Amanda Bynes, everybody. Now with a pierced face!
The increasingly erratic actress posted the image below on Tumblr yesterday, showing off her new look. Reaction online was … about what you’d think it would be.
“Dear Amanda Bynes, we get it … you’re bat s**t crazy,” posted one Twitter fan. “Amanda Bynes has her cheek pierced…. She’s a mess dude,” wrote a second.
“Yesssssss she’s killin it. New Lohan,” said another, in a brutal insult … or huge compliment, depending on how you look at it or what you’re going for.

Lindsay Lohan pulled a dumb move Monday, even by her lofty standards. She could have avoided jail time, again, by accepting a plea deal for “lockdown rehab.”
Instead, she fired her longtime lawyer, Shawn Holley, who was literally on the way to the courthouse to make it happen … that’s really smart, Lindsay. Brava.
Refresher: The Santa Monica City Attorney’s office is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway.
They were willing to keep Lindsay out of jail, under the condition that she agree to check into serious, in-patientMore >
Lindsay Lohan needs professional help like whoa and wants to see a psychiatrist to keep her out of jail (and for her general well being), but reportedly lacks the money to do so.
Someone apparently doesn’t have good health insurance.
“Lindsay is overwhelmed at the prospect of going back to jail and believes that a psychiatrist can help her through this trying time of her life,” says a Lohan insider.
“However, Lindsay has a huge problem … she literally has no money.”
How is that possible, you ask? Well, the IRS seized her bank accounts for one … and the cost of therapy isMore >
Amanda Bynes has reached financial settlements with both of her hit-and-run victims from earlier this year, and the L.A. City Attorney’s office is far from pleased.
As you surely heard, the troubled star was charged with two counts of hit-and-run stemming from separate 2012 in which she hit other people’s cars, then bailed.
Bynes has since struck a financial deal with both sets of victims, however, and her attorney then convinced a judge to throw out the criminal charges against her.
The decision infuriated the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, to put it mildly.
One week after their relationship hit rock bottom, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have reportedly agreed to a legal truce.
Details of the accord are scarce, but Aubry showed up in court today (Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez were absent), with his attorney and Berry’s attorney releasing a joint statement a short while ago that simply reads:
“The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter.”
At immediate issue had been the protective order against Aubry granted to Berry on Thanksgiving, hours after Gabriel and MartinezMore >
We have an update in the ongoing Ariel Winter saga.
With the 14-year old Modern Family actress currently living with her sister – as authorities investigate her mother, Chrystal Workman, regarding charges of abuse – two people close to Winter have spoken out in defense of Workman.
In a new court declaration, an ex-babysitter of Ariel’s writes:
“As a former licensed in-home daycare provider trained to recognize abuse, I saw no signs nor did I witness abuse of any kind (sexual, physical, or emotional) against Ariel.”
Meanwhile, Chrystal’s cousin refers to Workman as “a morallyMore >
Ordered out of her house by a a judge while authorities investigate her mother for abuse, Ariel Winter is “doing well,” according Amir Pichvai, the 14-year-old’s guardianship attorney.
Winter, who stars on ABC’s Modern Family as Alex Dunphy, is currently residing with sister Shanelle Gray, with a hearing schedule for November 20 to revisit the unfortunate situation.
“Ariel is doing well and she has a lot of people who are loving her and supporting her at this time, and I’m pretty confident that she’ll fare well through all of this,” says Pichvai. “She is obviously a very smartMore >
