Jerry Sandusky pleaded not guilty inside of a Pennsylvania courtroom today, waiving his right to a preliminary hearing in the process and avoiding any testimony from those who have accused him of child abuse. For now at least.

The disgraced ex-defensive coordinator at Penn State subsequently appeared on the courtroom steps alongside his lawyer, Joseph Amendola, who told the press:

"There will be no plea negotiations. This is a fight to the death."

Amendola added that his client also waived his appearance at the January 11 arraignment and asked for a jury trial.

A handful of alleged victims were present at the court house this morning and prepared to make their claims public , a step they will now take instead some time in 2012.

Said Howard Janet, an attorney for one of the boys who has said he showered with Sandusky: "It would have been apparent from watching those boys and their demeanor that they were telling the truth."

Hulk Hogan has dropped a legal leg drop on his ex-wife.

The former professional wrestler filed a lawsuit against Linda Hogan last week, following allegations in her new memoir that claim the Hulkster abused her physically and carried on a same-sex affair with former WWE star Brutus "the Barber" Beefcake.

A Disgraced Wrestler

"After the four-year crazy divorce I thought I'd heard everything I could hear in the courtroom," Hulk told Us Weekly of his basis for filing the defamation suit. "Then, all of a sudden she says I abused her, that I was violent. She told everybody that I was a homosexual."

Labeling the accusations as "insane," Hulk continued:

If "I was a homosexual I would embrace it. It's just so crazy to hear, so I have a real problem with it... If you're going to say I'm something that I'm not to try to ruin my career and my livelihood... I have to answer her back."

Reigning National League MVP Ryan Braun has reportedly tested positive for a banned substance and is appealing to Major League Baseball, according to reports.

ESPN cited two sources Saturday in first reporting the news, saying the 28-year-old Milwaukee Brewers star tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

A spokesman for Braun said in a statement that "there are highly unusual circumstances surrounding this case which will support Ryan's complete innocence."

"There was absolutely no intentional violation of the program," Matthew Hiltzik said in a statement sent by the four-time All-Star left fielder's representatives.

"Ryan has impeccable character and no previous history, unfortunately, because of the process we have to maintain confidentiality and are not able to discuss it any further."

"we are confident that he will ultimately be exonerated."

The case is still being appealed to an arbitrator under MLB's drug program.

Joshua Komisarjevsky has been sentenced to death following his conviction on 17 counts for the grisly murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit and her daughters, Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, and the vicious beating of Dr. William Petit.

The family was infamously slain in Cheshire, Conn.

As the sole survivor in the home invasion, Dr. Petit had been anxiously awaiting the decision in a conference room at the New Haven court with other family members.

"It's not easy," he said before the verdict was announced.

"We have a lot of family here. We have a lot of support."

Komisarjevsky's accomplice, Steven Hayes, was given the death penalty last December and remains in prison awaiting execution by lethal injection in Connecticut.

The jury deliberated for five days before voting Friday to send Komisarjevsky to death row, condemning him to the same fate as his accomplice in the 2007 crime.

The verdict ends two trials that showed jurors grim evidence - charred beds, rope used to tie up the family and autopsy photos taken after the Petit family murders.

Erin Andrews is now suing the hotel where she was videotaped secretly in the nude for $10 million, according to reports. The incident occurred in Nashville in 2008.

In the suit, originally filed last year, and just refiled to ensure the statute of limitations did not run out, Andrews asks for $6 million from the West End Marriott.

She also seeks $4 million from Michael David Barrett, who pleaded guilty to stalking her. In 2010, he was sentenced to two and a half years in federal prison.

The suit says the hotel was guilty of negligence for allowing Barrett to learn where she was staying and record the infamous Erin Andrews nude peephole video.

Barrett had previously videotaped Andrews in other cities, according to prosecutors, and was able to not only find the hotel but book a neighboring room.

The Marriott has not commented on the lawsuit.

Erin Andrews, 33, is a popular reporter for ESPN.

She has said that the peeping tom incident and secret naked surveillance tape taken by the perv still causes her "great emotional distress and embarrassment."

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been arrested on nine new child abuse charges, courtesy of two new accusers who were not named in the Grand Jury report that originally indicted Sandusky on 40 counts of inappropriate sexual behavior.

The disgraced ex-coach was handcuffed and removed from his home earlier today.

"As in many of the other cases identified to date, the contact with Sandusky allegedly fit a pattern of ‘grooming’ victims," Attorney General officials say. "Beginning with outings to football games and gifts; they later included physical contact that escalated to sexual assaults.”

The two alleged victims were each under the of 12 when they met Sandusky and have told authorities his actions with them included: hugging, rubbing, cuddling, wrestling, oral sex and sexual assaults that took place in a pool and jacuzzi in a hotel near the Penn State campus.

Sandusky is being held in a county jail and his bail has been set at $250,000. He recently spoke to The New York Times and claimed he never performed sexual acts with children.

According to police records, Brooke Mueller punched a woman in the face last Friday night and then was found with between four to five grams of cocaine in her purse.

But a rep for Charlie Sheen's former wife tells TMZ this is much hullabaloo over nothing, as Mueller's attorney is currently in Aspen with the "goal of having all charges dropped once the facts of the case come to light."

The Former Mrs. Charlie Sheen

While those facts, according to this rep, do not include possession of cocaine, Brooke's friends are still insisting she enter another rehab program. But one thing is for certain: she's not handing over her twin sons to Sheen or to her parents.

"There will be no changes in the custody arrangement," this source says.

Mueller is due back in court on December 19. She is also under probation in California, but - depending on what is uncovered and decreed over the next few weeks - this arrest is unlikely to affect that situation.

Alec Baldwin and American Airlines are engaged in an epic feud after the actor was removed from a flight Tuesday, then tore the airline a new one on Twitter.

All over a game of Words With Friends, too.

When Baldwin was told by flight attendants that he had to get off his phone in the middle of a game, he stormed off and slammed the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved, according to fellow passengers.

The cabin door was closed, but the plane remained at the gate at the time of the incident. Alec then got up to go to the can and angrily slammed the door.

The captain then himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.

Sources close to the 30 Rock star counter that he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant's name so he could file a complaint, but since the fasten seat belt sign was on at the time he was forced off the aircraft.

Alec proceeded to board the next LAX-JFK flight.

American Airlines claims Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" of the first flight, "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

Terrence Howard's estranged wife, Michelle Howard, was granted a restraining order against the actor this morning, saying beats and threatens to kill her.

Michelle filed court documents claiming Terrence began making threats and beating her up just seven days after the couple got married in January 2010.

She filed for divorce in February 2011. He denies any of this.

In the documents, Michelle claims Howard "slugged me across my face and neck" and threatened to throw her off a balcony, and that the actor also ...

Terrence Howard and Michelle Howard
  • Said, "If you tell anyone about my business, I'll kill you and no one will ever know."
  • Smacked her in the face, chipping her tooth with his wedding ring.
  • Yelled, "B!tch, walk home. That's my car, I pay for it."
  • Said, "I'll hit a woman quicker than I'd hit a man."
  • Threw her to the ground in a parking lot.

Howard denies he ever threatened Michelle, who he accuses of trying to "release private materials to 3rd parties for her own personal financial gain."

The material in question: A video of Terrence Howard nude, singing in the shower. Obviously. That would fetch MILLIONS on the market tomorrow.

In any case, an L.A. County Superior Court judge granted Michelle a temporary restraining order preventing Howard from going near or contacting her.

Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death, but the late singer's former dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein is under investigation by the Medical Board of California for his past treatment of his famous patient.

Klein has been accused - by Murray and others - of fueling MJ's addiction to prescription painkillers, and has been subpoenaed by the Board for questioning.

He just posted a letter on Facebook, apparently sent from his ex-lawyer, showing that officials are probing allegations that Klein over-prescribed Demerol.

Arnold Klein Pic

The Board reportedly wants to grill Klein about the possibility that he self-prescribed narcotics, used false names on narcotics prescriptions, illegally handed out samples of dangerous drugs to his famous patients such as Michael Jackson.

By doing so, Klein, who has multiple sclerosis, may have committed gross negligence.

Also rumored to be the biological father of Prince and Paris Jackson, Klein has always strongly denied any wrongdoing and is not accused of any criminal conduct.

Time will tell if that changes and/or if the board takes any disciplinary action.
