R. Kelly has been arrested, again. This time, the controversial crooner has been pinched on federal sex trafficking charges.

As long was rumored, the Feds had R’uh on their radar.

The New York Times reports that on Thursday night (July 11), federal agents arrested him for charges that include child pornography.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer was already under indictment in Chicago for aggravated sexual assault and abuse, which are state charges. He also caught 11 more felony charges in May.

The new 13 count indictment includes charges of child pornography, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Kelly was arrested around 7 p.m., while he was out walking his dog near his home at…wait for it…Trump Tower.

This story is developing.

Article: Federal League Once Again Snubbed By MLB All-Star Game

CINCINNATI—Saying that the annual event feels incomplete without them, baseball fans across the nation expressed their outrage Tuesday after the Federal League was once again snubbed by the MLB All-Star Game. “To be perfectly frank, it is indefensible that another All-Star Game is going to take place without a single player from the Federal League,” said ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian, adding that the eight talent-laden FL teams will go unrepresented during the festivities for the 86th consecutive time, with even the defending champion Chicago Whales being egregiously overlooked. “Doc Addington is batting .339 for the [Newark] Peppers, while Brixton Murphy and his 68 RBIs have single-handedly kept the Brooklyn Tip-Tops in playoff contention, and baseball lovers deserve to see them face the best arms in the Majors. Of course, after pitching 190 strikeouts underhand during the first half of the season, Dutch Cooper has also earned himself a …

News in Brief: Struggling Justice Alito Sent Down To Lower Federal Court

WASHINGTON—Following weeks of declining performance within the nation’s highest judicial body, the Supreme Court announced Thursday that it has sent a struggling Associate Justice Samuel Alito down to a lower federal court. “Sammy’s been a little cold with his dissenting opinions lately, so we’ve assigned him to a minor appellate jurisdiction until he can better contribute to this court,” Chief Justice John Roberts told reporters, confirming that Alito had been removed from the Supreme Court’s nine-person roster and appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. “Obviously, Sammy is a veteran legal scholar who has played a deciding role in several high-profile cases, but until he regains his stroke, we need to go with someone who can best interpret statutory law as set out by the U.S. Constitution. But we’re confident that he only needs to author a few …
