Billboard reports,

CeeLo Green has pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles.

The Grammy-winning singer entered the plea during a brief court hearing on Friday. He also entered a special plea in which he maintained his innocence in the case.

Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced the 39-year-old singer to three years of formal probation. Young said Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, will be allowed to travel for work.

Green entered the plea just before a preliminary hearing, which would have disclosed potential evidence against him, was scheduled to begin.

Prosecutors rejected a rape charge against Green when he was charged with the felony drug charge in October 2013. His attorney Blair Berk has said Green had consensual sex with the woman he gave ecstasy to during the 2012 dinner.


Some of hip-hop’s biggest A-listers have teamed up for one of the genre’s most powerful collaborations, “Don’t Shoot” an outcry about the controversial police killing of Ferguson teen Michael Brown.

Spearheaded by the Game, the song features 10 additional rappers — Diddy, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, Swizz Beatz, Curren$y, 2 Chainz, Wale, DJ Khaled, Problem, and Fabolous. R&B singers King Pharaoh, Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank (the latter comprising the group TGT) also take part in the all-star statement song.

“Don’t Shoot’s” sentiment is similar to two legendary, all-star, anti-violence hip-hop records, the East Coast’s “Self Destruction” in 1989 and the West Coast’s “We’re All in the Same Gang” in 1990.

CNN reports,

A 9-year-old girl learning to fire a submachine gun accidentally killed her instructor at a shooting range when the weapon recoiled over her shoulder, according to Arizona authorities.

The instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, died at a hospital Monday night after he was shot in the head.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said the girl was with her parents. The three reside in New Jersey. The website of Bullets and Burgers, the shooting range where the accident happened, says children between the ages of 8 and 17 can shoot a weapon if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Police said the weapon was an Uzi, an Israeli-made submachine gun that some experts say is the wrong choice of firepower for instructing a child.

Representatives of the gun range declined CNN requests for comment on the incident. But Sam Scarmardo, who operates Bullets and Burgers, told CNN affiliate KLAS on Tuesday they “really don’t know what happened.”

“Our guys are trained to basically hover over people when they’re shooting,” Scarmardo said. “If they’re shooting right-handed, we have our right-hand behind them ready to push the weapon out of the way. And if they’re left-handed, the same thing.”

The investigation into the shooting has been completed and no charges were pending, authorities said.
