Breaking his silence for the first time since he tragically shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson is telling his side of the story.

He tells ABC News that the circumstances of that fateful day left him no choice.

Wilson, who will not be indicted by a Ferguson grand jury, said Brown was the instigator in the confrontation, charging at him and disregarding his instructions.

The August 9 shooting sparked massive protests, and riots began again this week in the St. Louis suburb after Wilson was legally cleared of wrongdoing.

How does he remember the day he will no doubt relive for the rest of his life?

Wilson tells ABC News he was driving to get lunch when he saw Brown and a friend walking in the middle of the street, “single-file on the double-yellow line.”

Last night, a grand jury in Ferguson, MO decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in connection with the shooting of Michael Brown.

While most celebrity responses to the grand jury's decision consisted of outraged tweets and pleas for peace, at least one A-list recording artist took to the streets to join the citizens of Ferguson in protest:

Rapper Macklemore attempted to blend in with the crowd while participating in a peaceful demonstration, but he was quickly spotted by a TMZ cameraman.

Asked why he'd decided to join the protesters, Macklemore responded, "It's not about me; it's about Michael Brown."

On Monday night, a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri voted NOT to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed 18-year old Michael Brown in August.

Riots broke out in the streets for days following the incident and, as documented in the following video, unrest followed the grand jury verdict once again last night.

Prosecutor Bob McCulloch explained via press conference that the grand jury found no probable cause for any of the charges considered against Wilson.

The officer could have faced prosecution for first-degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting of Michael Brown, whose death has led to so much unrest.

In response, President Barack Obama addressed the nation, pushing for calm, while celebrities from across all industries expressed their reaction on Twitter...

Russell Simmons: the D.A never represented the people properly. He never wanted an indictment. violent ones in the streets are likely those who didn’t vote.

Government representatives in Poland have pooh-poohed efforts to use Winnie the Pooh as the official mascot of a town playground.

According to The Croatian Times, local officials will not allow the beloved Disney character to grace a poster near the park due to his “dubious sexuality." We're not making this up.

"The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe,” says Councillor Ryszard Cichy. “It is half naked, which is wholly inappropriate for children.”

In Winnie the Pooh's defense, he is wearing more articles of clothing than most bears out there.

Also, he's a cartoon.

Ryan McPherson and Daniel Tanner, co-creators of the Bumfights video series, were recently arrested in Thailand on some seriously disturbing charges.

The two men were charged with allegedly packaging actual human child body parts stolen from a hospital in Bangkok, and shipping them to the U.S.

The packages were labeled as "toys."

According to multiple reports, Ryan McPherson and Daniel Tanner were apprehended after a scan of three boxes by a Bangkok parcel company last week.

The gruesome discovery was reportedly intended for their friends back home in Las Vegas as a prank, but the authorities weren't in a laughing mood.

Their packages contained several body parts, including a child's foot, an infant's head, an adult heart and two pieces of adult skin (it's not clear from where).

The pair was taken into custody.

Very well played, Karl Stefanovic.

The relatively unknown Australian news anchor has made waves around the Internet after growing irritated by the unsolicited fashion advice and appearance-based criticisms viewers have continually offered his female colleague, Lisa Wilkinson.

In response, Stefanovic conducted his very own social experiment: he wore the same suit on air every single day for one year’s worth of broadcasts… and no one paid him any attention for it.

"No one has noticed; no one gives a sh-t,” Stefanovic tells The Sydney Morning Herald.

“But women, they wear the wrong color and they get pulled up. They say the wrong thing and there's thousands of tweets written about them. Women are judged much more harshly and keenly for what they do, what they say and what they wear."

When you think of celebrities, you think of glitz, glamor, luxury and larger than life personas, not people who humbly put the needs of others before their own.

On Veterans Day 2014, we're taking a look at why this isn't always the case ...

Drew Carey
The Price is Right host Drew Carey spent six years (1980-1986) in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. He still has the haircut!

More famous faces than you might think have served in the United States military, protecting our great nation and never forgetting where they came from.

On this Veterans Day, we pay tribute to 19 of them, past and present, who joined the armed forces before embarking on the career paths we know.

Some saw combat, while others served as journalists or in other capacities.

All felt the call to serve, and what better occasion than this holiday than to thank them for taking up that cause so that our way of life remains sacrosanct.

So check out the gallery above. Some of those who made the list will undoubtedly surprise many fellow Americans, while other famous veterans may not.

Happy Veterans Day to all who have fought and served the U.S.A.!
