Anita Baker: Arrest warrant issued for singer

An arrest warrant has been issued for Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker.

A Wayne County Circuit judge signed off on the warrant this week. It was sought by the lawyer for a company that says Baker owes $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe, Mich., home.

Baker’s lawyer, Jamal Hamood, says he plans to file a motion Friday to cancel the warrant. Hamood says Baker wasn’t served with papers and didn’t know she had been sued in 2011 by Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating. He says Baker is out of town and will remain so until the warrant issue is cleared up.

The company’s lawyer, Daniel Gerow, tells The Detroit News he doesn’t want Baker to go to jail, but only wants to see his client get paid.

Police: Bieber claimed foot fracture in Florida

Justin Bieber claimed after a shaky sobriety test in Florida that he was suffering from a hairline fracture in his right foot and made condescending comments to officers, according to a Miami Beach police document released Tuesday.

The police summary of Bieber’s performance on various sobriety tests following his Jan. 23 arrest shows that the pop singer told officers he had injured his foot skateboarding three months earlier. The officer had noted that Bieber appeared to sway and have leg tremors during one of the tests, and also winced as if in pain.

“He appeared to have great difficulty,” the report noted, adding that the injury never was mentioned or noticed after that test.

Austin police say a third person has died after being struck by a suspected drunken driver last week during the SXSW festival.

Sandy Le died of injuries suffered early Thursday, according to spokeswoman Veneza Bremner. She did not say when the 26-year-old died.

Jamie West, 27, of Austin and Dutchman Steven Craenmehr, 35, were killed at the scene. More than 20 others were injured.

Rashad Owens, 21, has been charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle. He’s accused of driving drunk and fleeing from police, then intentionally driving into festival-goers.

Chris Brown returns to court after rehab dismissal

After a weekend in jail, Chris Brown is facing a court hearing over his dismissal from rehab and whether he should be given additional penalties, which could include more time behind bars.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer spent the weekend in a downtown Los Angeles lockup after a judge ordered him to be arrested for violating the rules and regulations of his treatment. Court records did not elaborate on the reason for Brown’s dismissal from the facility in Malibu that was treating him for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bi-polar disorder.

Brown, 24, had been under court orders to remain in treatment since November, one month after he was arrested in Washington, D.C., after a man accused him of punching him in a confrontation outside a hotel. That case remains pending, and Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin has not yet scheduled a probation violation hearing to address whether he would penalize the singer for the arrest.
