Police are investigating an altercation in which a New Jersey woman outside a nightclub appeared to grab a police officer, who then punched her in the face.

In the video below, a fight outside Envy Night Club escalates from yelling and cursing to a physical scuffle, when a cop emerges and appears to punch a woman:

Elizabeth, N.J., police are looking into the incident, NBC New York reported. The club said it was aware of the fight but offered no comment or detail.

On a side note, you can hear a bystander chant "WORLD STAR," referring to a celebrity gossip website that compiles videos of fights caught on tape.

The clip is already up on the site, obvi.

Marion Adams - a multimedia teacher and track and field coach at Rio Londa High School in California - died this week in a terrifying bicycle accident, reports The Sacramento Bee.

The 59-year old was riding away from practice on Monday when he looked over his shoulder to bid farewell to a student.

RIP Coach

Tragically, Adams therefore failed to see a partially opened metal gate in the school parking lot and could not slow down in time to avoid it.

He was impaled on the structure, rushed to Mercy San Juan Hospital and initially survived two surgeries to treat internal injuries before passing away.

Eccentric NBA legend Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip to North Korea, according to reports, with his sights set on much more than basketball.

The star wants to broker a peace deal between the United States and the (erroneously named) Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Seriously.

Obama, Rodman, Kim

Rodman's rep says that despite a storied career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, records, awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."

Whoa whoa. Slow down. Guy is the career rebounds per game leader in the NBA since 1973. He once averaged 18 per game in a season! Insane.

Federal prosecutors have rested their case against Gilberto Valle, New York's so-called "cannibal cop" and a man accused of some truly unthinkable behavior.

Images from websites devoted to torturing and eating women were shown as prosecutors alleged Valle was involved in a plot to kidnap, torture and eat women.

Valle

With the final witness came the most vivid images of what prosecutors say the former NYPD officer may have had in mind for certain targets of his own.

For the first time, the jury inside the federal courthouse saw graphic photos and video as they heard evidence in the cannibalism case against Gilberto Valle.

Jurors appeared uncomfortable Monday as prosecutors showed a video of a screaming woman made to appear as if she were being cooked alive.

A smiling, playful, OMG-too-cute polar bear cub was born recently at the Buffalo Zoo in western New York, and is ready to make its public debut!

The unnamed fluffy white bear was introduced Friday as the zoo announced the next phase of fundraising for a new $18 million polar bear exhibit for him/her.

This should be quite the fundraising draw:

  • Baby Polar Bear
  • Baby Polar Bear Cub

The Buffalo Zoo is one of only two zoos in North America to have successful polar bear births in 2012. The species is listed as Vulernable, a step above Endangered.

The cub is still too small to exhibit for the public, but she’s visible in her enclosure via closed-circuit TV at the zoo until she gets big enough this spring.

He/she must be loving these wintry conditions of late.

George Zimmerman's attorneys stunned court observers Tuesday when they waived their client's right to a "Stand Your Ground" pretrial hearing.

That hearing, scheduled for April, could have led to a dismissal of the charges in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.

Zimmerman Waives Hearing

Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch captain in his Sanford, Fla., subdivision, shot and killed the teen, who was visiting a house in the area.

He claimed self-defense but faces second-degree murder charges. The move allows the defense more time to prepare for the trial this summer. 

It also raises the stakes for the defendant.

A Texas baby born with its heart on the outside of its body survived a risky surgery and now looks like she will thrive against nearly impossible odds.

The little girl's mom was told 16 weeks into her pregnancy that the fetus was developing a rare heart malformation that almost always proves fatal.

"I was devastated,” Ashley Cardenas said earlier on Today. “I didn’t really understand what they meant by her heart was on the outside of her body.”

Rather than terminate her pregnancy, Cardenas tried to beat the odds.

Her daughter, Audrina, was born with ectopia cordis, a condition in which all or part of the heart is outside of the chest - which required major surgery.
