Taylor said her delivery came as a surprise since her original due date was set for mid-January, but it was her NBA beau who assisted in ushering their newborn girl into the world. "Not knowing I was in labor until I felt her head...it took two ten count pushes with my fiance playing Dr and she entered this world into his bare hands!" she wrote on Instagram. "She has blown Christmas away! Our family is complete. Her blueprint will be unmatched."

Gas Station Fight Breaks Out Over Possibly Stolen Hot Dogs

A fight reportedly broke out at an Akron, OH gas station over allegations of stolen hot dogs. Per 19 News in Akron, four women jumped a man who was attempting to help a woman they were allegedly beating up.

Per the report, the fight broke out after the women were accused of stealing hot dogs by the woman in the store. They tried to attack the woman when they left the store, which caused the man to step in attempt to intervene.

“I know the video makes it look like he was trying to fight them, but they were actually jumping him,” according to Cam Dancy, who was present during the time of the attack. “They were throwing trash cans and the windshield wiper thing, and one girl ripped the gas pump off and tried to hit him with that.”

“Then I see gasoline flying everywhere and they’re all just jumping at him,” Dancy continues. The New York Daily News, the man was seen "shoving one woman to the ground in the parking lot. Her friends then swarmed him, throwing a squeegee, a gas hose and what appear to be plastic garbage can lids at him."

White Man Sentenced To Life In Prison For Running Over Black Teenager

A white man who ran over and killed a black teenager with his car in Oregon in 2016 was sentenced to life in prison for his crime. The decision marks Oregon’s first hate crime murder conviction in 30 years.

According to The Oregonian, Russell Orlando Courtier will not only serve time for killing 19-year-old Larnell Bruce Jr., he adds an additional four-year term to his sentence for a bar attack in 2015. He will have to serve a minimum of 28 years before he’s eligible for release.

Per the report, Courtier and Bruce got into a fistfight outside of a 7-11 in August 2016. Prosecutors do not know what prompted the fight between Bruce and the 40-year-old.

“Courtier was a member of a white supremacist prison gang [“European Kindred”] and was wearing the gang’s logo on his baseball cap and had it tattooed on one of his legs when he encountered Bruce outside the convenience store,” The Oregonian writes.  “A moment later, surveillance video captured Bruce sprinting down a nearby street and then a sidewalk in a desperate attempt to get away from Courtier and the Jeep.”

During the trial, witnesses say that they heard Colleen Hunt, Courtier’s then-girlfriend and passenger in the Jeep, yell “Run him over!” and “Get him, baby!” She pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the case, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

“[Bruce’s] family also has started a nonprofit organization -- Love and Live #LarnellBruce Foundation -- to help victims of hate crimes and their families get through the enormous anger and loss that results from such crimes,” The Oregonian concludes.
