"I'll be exonerated," said Brown who was outside the courtroom in Manhattan Criminal Court decked out in Chanel sunglasses, Chanel bag, and a beaded Chanel belt. "I'm confident in the justice system." "We're not interested in any disposition that includes her admitting to a crime she did not commit," her attorney, Joseph Tacopina, added. Brown, 25, is accused of punching and kicking Myoung Yi and Sun Ji Song in and outside the Bloomie...

    Word of the death plunged Niagara Falls High School, where Sheard was a sophomore, into mourning. By noon Thursday, his locker had turned into a makeshift memorial. Students brought cards with messages for their friend and his family.

"Our primary goal was to determine what was true and how to handle students arriving who were very, very upset." School officials assembled a crisis intervention team that included administrators, counselors, safety officers and a nurse. The team came up with...

This is a case in which mere words, even a verbatim transcript, would be insufficient to fully convey the full flavor of the interview. In a follow-up interview, NBA Players' Union head Billy Hunter acknowledged to Katie that Artest was "not very articulate." But that does not begin...

The violence broke out as rapper Dr. Dre rose to accept the Vibe Legend Award from presenters Quincy Jones and Snoop Dogg, a witness at the Santa Monica event told The Post. An unidentified man sitting with Death Row Records chief Marion "Suge" Knight lunged toward Dr. Dre with a knife — but members of rapper 50 Cent's entourage intervened, the witness said.
