A Florida restaurateur was serving up more than hot dogs when he was located in his truck with cocaine, heroin, and other heavy drugs.

Louis Younglove, of Louis Younglove’s Chi-Town Italian Beef & Hot Dogs, was arrested on February 4th and remained in Broward County Jail as of Tuesday. He is being charged with a slew of drug-related offenses such as trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in fentanyl, trafficking in ecstasy, trafficking in amphetamines, trafficking in heroin, marijuana possession with intent to sell, Xanax possession with intent to sell, and several others. He was also charged with failure to use care after ramming an unmarked Broward Sheriff’s Office vehicle with his truck to avoid a traffic stop.

His arrest came after Broward Sheriff officers followed Youngblood from his Fort Lauderdale home to his restaurant. The 57-year-old drove his Toyota Tundra to the eatery but did not park in his usual spot. Instead, he went toward Southeast 15th Street. When one officer tried to make a traffic stop, Youngblood allegedly tried to escape and hit another BSO unmarked vehicle.

Police found a large number of drugs inside Youngblood’s truck, including 109 bags of cocaine weighing 162 grams, 102 grams of marijuana, 219 grams of edible THC, 37 bags of fentanyl, 44 grams of ecstasy, 451 Xanax pills, 36 oxycodone tablets; 28 hydrocodone tablets, 57 Adderall pills and 23 8 mg packages of buprenorphine. Additionally, they found $18,474 cash. At his home, BSO found another $500,000 and more drugs.

Youngblood’s bond is set at $1,351,500.

New Voting Rights Act Named After John Lewis To Come “by August”

House Majority Whip James Clyburn said on MSNBC’sThe Sunday Show” that he plans to get the John Lewis Voting Rights Act on President Joe Biden’s desk by August.

Clyburn explained, “What we’re attempting to do now, we’ve renamed HR-4 in honor of John Lewis. We want to pass that bill. We’re doing exactly what the Supreme Court said we should do — update the formula.”

“In the next six months, as you did before, by August 6, we want to have on President Biden’s desk a new voting rights act in order — named after John Lewis — to restore the efficacy of the 1965 Voting Rights Act,” he added. “I think we can do it.”

On August 6, 1965, then-President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law, exactly 56 years before Clyburn promised the new act would be signed.

The executive order coincides with the 56th anniversary of that protest, known as Bloody Sunday.

Biden said, “Today, on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, I am signing an executive order to make it easier for eligible voters to register to vote and improve access to voting.” He added, “Every eligible voter should be able to vote and have that vote counted. If you have the best ideas, you have nothing to hide. Let the people vote.”

According to the White House, Biden’s executive order is an “initial step.” The president intends to collaborate with Congress to reinstate the Voting Rights Act, which abolished discriminatory practices such as literacy tests for voting eligibility.

“I also urge Congress to fully restore the Voting Rights Act, named in John Lewis’ honor,” Biden said.

Burger King tried it when the corporation’s official Twitter page sent out this tweet at 4 a.m. Monday: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

The fast food giant quickly followed up its troll tweet with:

“If they want to, of course. Yet only 20% of chefs are women. We’re on a mission to change the gender ratio in the restaurant industry by empowering female employees with the opportunity to pursue a culinary career.”

The tweet was meant to coincide with Women’s month in America, but Burger King’s followers said the tweet was in poor taste and called for BK to delete it.

But Burger King doubled down.

“Why would we delete a tweet that’s drawing attention to a huge lack of female representation in our industry, we thought you’d be on board with this as well? We’ve launched a scholarship to help give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career.

“Our ‘thought process’ is that women are shockingly underrepresented in our industry, and we thought it was time we did something about it. We’ve created a scholarship to give more of our female employees the chance to pursue a culinary career.”

BK’s followers were not impressed with the scholarship offer. One Twitter user accused BK of trying to run interference for the Royal Family after Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor’s disastrous tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday.

Bruno Mars Takes To Twitter To Beg The Grammy’s For His Band ‘Silk Sonic’ To Perform

Bruno Mars isn’t too proud to beg, despite selling millions of records and winning countless awards.

The singer is requesting that his band, Silk Sonic, be added to the Grammy’s lineup at the last minute.

The “24K Magic” singer revealed earlier this month that he and Anderson.Paak are working on a Silk Sonic album. Their first song, “Leave the Door Open,” was released on Friday and will feature on the duo’s upcoming collaboration album.

After the Recording Academy announced the lineup for the upcoming award show, including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, and John Mayer, Mars took to Twitter to request that the lineup be changed.

According to Bruno, Silk Sonic will adhere to all safety protocols and even joked that they are willing to audition for the role.

He went on to say that the duo “hasn’t been able to play in a while” and that they “just want to sing.”

Mars told organizers that “as many covid tests as we need” will be conducted.

“I promise we won’t be extra. We just really want a gig again. I hope you’ll consider this request and give us the opportunity to shine. Love, Silk Sonic.”

Fans are likely to be surprised that the artist is begging to be added as an addition on the Grammy’s since his 2016 album, “24k Magic” earned him an album of the year, a record of the year for the title track, and at the 2018 Grammy’s he won song of the year for “That’s What I Like.”
