As reported, Brown tested positive for marijuana during a recent test hearing in Virginia, violating his probation in relation to his assault on Rihanna in 2009. According to Radar Online, Riri says she’s willing to defend him at his next hearing in Los Angeles.
”Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
”Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on Nov. 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn’t set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to her on multiple occasions.
”Rihanna would also tell the judge that Chris isn’t the same person now, as he was on that fateful night when he assaulted her.”
As for critics who will attack the Barbados native for defending him, the source said: ”Rihanna doesn’t care if she is criticized for standing by Chris, she genuinely loves him.”
*NFL players have a new (maybe) trick up their sleeves these days.
Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams tried to pass the ol’ pee test but used some non-human urine. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say.
The football player failed the drug test he took last August, but it wasn’t because toxicologists detected some illegal substance. He failed because the urine was “not consistent with a normal, healthy male urine specimen.”

He tried again in September, but failed that one too. The pee wasn’t human.
While you could be thinking, “Man, was he catching his dog’s pee?” – think of the unthinkable.
The man was using synthetic urine. Yeah they make that too.
You’d think by now he’d stop trying to do the ol’ switcheroo. But no, he tried it one more time, but test administrators saw a vile drop from his waist before the test.
Now, Williams filed an appeal, but in the meantime, he could be sitting this season out.
His attorney, Peter Ginsberg issued a statement, accusing the league of rushing to judgment without the proper evidence.
“The NFL made the suggestion but offered no evidence, refused to present anyone involved in either this specimen collection process or the testing of that specimen and simply made an allegation that has made its way into the evidentiary record and the media,” he said. “It’s the wrong way to go about addressing a serious matter.
*Remember back in March when we told you about Florida’s governor Rick Scott (R), preparing to require any potential welfare recipient to first pay a $35 fee for a drug test before they could be eligible?
Well, the law went into effect in July, but now a judge has put the smacketh down and stopped the enforcement of the new requirement…at least for now. (more…)
*Florida welfare laws that require applicants to submit to drug testing has gone into effect and the heat of controversy is afoot.
The residents are just a few days into the legislation signed off by the governor last month because there’s a shroud of sinister intention behind the law.
According to the CNN report, Florida’s welfare applicants are responsible for paying for the drug test as a part of the application process for aid. They will be (more…)

*The governors all over the nation are scrambling to find ways to cut corners, but you just gotta laugh when you hear the idea out of Florida.
It’s reminiscent of an idea D.C. was looking over a few years ago to get the women addicted to crack to stop having babies. They wanted to pay crackheads $10 every morning if they would come in and take a birth control pill. Brilliant, right?
This would inadvertently relieve the welfare and social services of caring for another single mother with children.
Well there’s a flaw in the plan, you’re putting out money and then turning around and paying them again with disability. (more…)
