Cops are looking for the guy who held up a sign that read that read, “Allez Opi-Omi” which translates to  “Go Grandma & Grandpa” at the Tour De France on Saturday. The dude and his sign got in the way of one of the cyclists, who went down, causing a domino-effect that led to one of the worst mass-crashes in the in history of the race…we’re talking dozens of competitors biting it. Cops are now looking to make an example of the sign-holder, and when the person’s found they can expect full prosecution…which could include a fine of over $18K and up to a year in prison.

NFL teams can begin wearing throwback uniforms again starting in 2022, but one franchise already has put the kibosh on the return of a popular throwback jersey — Philadelphia will wear its black alternate jersey the franchise debuted in 2003 & they didn’t have enough ample time to submit to the league a throwback uniform change, not  knowing the NFL was going to approve the use of an alternate helmet as soon as next year. If a team wasn’t already planning to wear a throwback, it won’t be able to add one at this point.

These fast food chicken wars have gone too far. A couple at a Memphis Burger King fired shots at the employee as they were complaining that the sauce on their sandwich had “too much hot sauce” on it. Witnesses IDed the duo and they were arrested on four counts of attempted murder and other charges.

A bartender at a New Hampshire bar received a $16K tip on a $38 tab. Rather than giving the entire tip to the bartender who handled the anonymous customer’s table, the owner opted to split the tip with the entire staff, giving them all just over $1,300. Now the Bar is gettin bad reviews from people who don’t think it’s right that the person that the tip was left for appears to be getting jobbed out of the cash that was left for that one server.
