He chased a man around a car with a knife.

An old person on an electric scooter chair is not generally an intimidating thing. They can’t sneek up on you because of the incessant beeping. And if you maintain a brisk pace, they’ll never catch you. Their battery will eventually run out or they will have to stop to let “Lady” climb down from their lap to pee.
But things change when the geezer has a knife and an attitude. Police in Rockledge, Florida say that’s what happened there this week, when a verbal agreement turned into an extremely low-speed chase. Investigators say 74-year-old Daniel Zarelli went into his home following a heated conversation and came back with an 8-inch knife. They say he then followed a woman around for several minutes as the woman tried to get away from him. During the chase, Zarelli allegedly threatened to kill the woman, prompting her to leave the home and call police to the scene. Investigators say Zarelli then went outside the home and chased another man around a parked car on the scooter, still holding the knife. The police report goes on to say that Zarelli slashed a tire on the car.
When police arrived on the scene, they observed Zarelli actively chasing the woman up his driveway on his scooter. He was still holding the knife. During their investigation, officers smelled alcohol on Zarelli’s breath. They also heard Zarelli threaten the man he had been chasing, saying he would kill him “while he had the chance”. Zarelli was apprehended, arrested and placed in the Brevard County Jail. He now faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was also on felony probation. He remains in custody and will appear before the judge next month. Source:

    I was fortunate that we became quite close, especially when the great drummer Jimmy Copley died in 2017. Jeff produced & played with Jim’s band Upp. We were regular hospital visitors & bonded in our anxieties over our dear friend. Tonight I’m raising a glass to him, Jimmy & Cozy.

    He always warmly welcomed me at his gigs over the years, as interested in my car as he was guitars, he was very funny to hang out with and easy to be around, which is perhaps different to what his image suggested – he loved that. My deep condolences to his wife Sandra.”

  • David Bowie

WWE Rumored Sale to Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund: A Timeline

WWE is causing a lot of speculation among its fanbase over the rumored sale of the company to the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund.

The potential sale of WWE has been a top trending topic on Twitter since last night (January 10), and it continues to be a top trend as of publishing. So far, WWE has yet to comment publicly on these rumors.

WWE has had a relationship with Saudi Arabia for a number of years. The sports entertainment giant began a 10-year partnership with Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Sport in 2018 that involves hosting pay-per-view events in the country.

There are many layers and details in this wild story. Here’s a breakdown of events in WWE for the past six+ months:

    Vince McMahon was the prime subject of a blockbuster report from The Wall Street Journal stating the WWE CEO secretly paid a $3 million settlement in January 2022 to a former employee with whom he had an alleged consensual affair.

    WSJ reported the WWE board of directors began an investigation into the matter after it received a series of anonymous emails beginning on March 30 from someone who said they were a friend of the former WWE employee who was hired in 2019 as a paralegal.

    WSJ said they received a letter regarding this matter from Jerry McDevitt, McMahon’s longtime attorney, that stated the former employee never filed any harassment claims against Mr. McMahon and, “WWE did not pay any monies” to her “on her departure.” However, those familiar with the WWE board inquiry on the matter said Mr. McDevitt negotiated the settlement deal and cited the aforementioned March 30 email which reportedly states, “My friend was so scared so she quit after Vince McMahon and lawyer Jerry paid her millions of dollars to shut up.”

I have committed to doing everything in my power to help the Special Committee complete its work, including marshaling the cooperation of the entire company to assist in the completion of the investigation and to implement its findings.”

    Furthermore, the joint statement from WWE and its Board of Directors concluded, “WWE and its Board of Directors take all allegations of misconduct very seriously.

WWE contacts claimed to not know what the hints were about.”

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
