Napa Man Arrested For The Reported Kidnapping And Sexual Assault Of A Teenage Girl

The pedophile was arrested and booked on multiple sexual assault counts at the local Sonoma County Jail.

In one of the most disturbing stories circulating media outlets this week, 50-year-old California native Timothy Lee Marble was arrested Monday (April 3) on multiple counts of sexual acts with a minor, kidnapping and child abuse. That's only the beginning of the nightmare for the 13-year-old victim as the cringeworthy details have been uncovered, CBS reports.

On March 30, the teenager ran away from her California home after a heated argument with her mother. The next day, the victim -- whose name is being withheld -- met Marble at a local Napa gas station around 3 a.m. Marble persuaded the girl to go for a ride in his red Chevy pickup. The pair drove off to a rural area to smoke marijuana together, where Marble made several sexual advances, which she rejected. Marble overpowered the teen and tied her up to a tree where she was repeatedly sexually assaulted and forcefully injected with a syringe of methamphetamine, according to authorities.

The trip turned into a nightmare when the psychotic rapist reportedly carved his name into the victim's skin with a razor blade. After being assaulted at least two more times in Marble's pickup truck, the teen jumped out of the moving vehicle as she feared for her life.

Charlamagne Tha God's choice for Donkey Of The Day on Thursday (April 6) incriminated himself by calling law enforcement to report a missing "teenage companion" that jumped out of his vehicle. When deputies arrived to the scene early Monday morning (April 3), the victim jumped out of a nearby bush, and said she was raped by Lee Marble. The pedophile was arrested and booked on multiple sexual assault counts at the local Sonoma County Jail. Luckily, the teen survived the traumatizing experience and has been reunited with her mom while in the hospital.

New York City's 'Hot 97' Will Not Play Tekashi 6ix9ine's Music After His Prison Release

With 6ix9ine expected to come home soon, reportedly to a record deal worth $10 million, New York City's Hot 97 radio station is making it known that they will not play his music.

According to a report by TMZ, an executive from the radio station confirmed that they are not planning on playing 6ix9ine's music upon his release from prison. Hot 97's exec admits that the station has never been a big supporter of the rapper. They also dislike the Brooklyn rapper's decision to testify against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates.

This also includes possibly banning the rapper from Summer Jam concert. TMZ  reported that the "Gummo" rapper is too much of a liability to preform at the celebrated concert.

Last year, Hot 97 personality Ebro, host of Ebro in the Morning, traded shots with 6ix9ine after the rapper berated Ebro on "Stoopid."

The executive states  that unless there's a public uproar that demands the station to play an overly successful song, then the company would consider it.

Queen Latifah To Receive Harvard University's W.E.B. Du Bois Medal

Praise for Queen Latifah's contributions to black culture continues to pour in for the Newark, New Jersey native. According to the Associated Press, the "U.N.I.T.Y" rapper will receive Harvard University's W.E.B. Du Bois Medal.

Alongside the award-winning entertainer, other game-changers in black culture will be honored on Oct. 22 including BET's co-founder Sheila Johnson, CEO of Vista Equity Partners Robert Smith, poet Rita Dove and more.

The occasion arrives over a year since Latifah received an honorary doctorate degree from Rutgers University in her New Jersey home state.

“This place has shaped me," she said during her acceptance speech. "Whether it’s been your home for four years or 40 years or something in between, you carry it with you. Just as I have. Long before Living Single and Set It Off and Chicago, it’s lessons I learned right here at home that made me the person I am."

The W.E.B. Du Bois Medal isn't only named after the activist but commemorates Du Bois' feat as the first black student to obtain a doctorate degree from the Ivy League.
