Police: Sheen vehicle stolen, found crashed
Los Angeles — A Mercedes that Charlie Sheen reported stolen from his Sherman Oaks home was found overturned hundreds of feet down a nearby cliff early Friday, but there’s no evidence anyone was in the car when it went into the ravine, police said.
A Bentley was later found off the same road nearby Friday afternoon, and police said three other cars reportedly were broken into in the same area. Police were investigating whether the incidents were linked.
Police got an emergency call around 4 a.m. from an OnStar-style alert system that calls emergency officials when there is a problem with the vehicle that may require assistance, Officer Wendy Reyes said. At about the same time, Sheen called police to say his four-door Mercedes-Benz had been stolen, Officer Bruce Borihanh said.
Pete Wentz says Fall Out Boy not done
Miami Beach, Fla. — Pete Wentz says talk of Fall Out Boy’s demise has been blown out of proportion — but he isn’t sure when the rock band will perform together again.
Earlier this week, lead singer Patrick Stump told Spin.com that the group was done after Wentz tweeted that he didn’t see a future for the platinum band.
But on Friday, Wentz said band members are just doing things apart and it’s not clear where their future lies.
“We just haven’t had the time to say anything. All I have been able to do is say, ‘Man, I miss doing Fall Out Boy,’ and I got to a better place hanging out with my son,” the bassist said of his infant son Bronx.
Judge wants Edwards sex tape returned
Pittsboro, N.C. — A judge wants to put a sex tape of two-time presidential candidate John Edwards “under lock and key,” demanding Friday that a former aide to the pilloried politician turn over the video by next week.
Superior Court Judge Abraham Penn Jones reprimanded Andrew Young during a brief court hearing in North Carolina for not surrendering the video when deputies went to retrieve it last week. Jones declared that the estranged Edwards confidant could face jail for contempt if he does not relinquish the tape and other items by Wednesday afternoon.
“These items are to be produced and turned over to the court,” Jones said. “The court will put them under lock and key — and under seal — until the lawsuit is resolved.”
The original sex tape is in an Atlanta safety deposit box, according to an affidavit filed by Young on Friday night. He says another copy has been turned over to the FBI, which has been investigating the money that exchanged hands during Edwards’ second White House campaign.
