A judge has cleared comedian Tracy Morgan of wrongdoing after he removed his alcohol monitoring ankle bracelet for medical reasons last week. The 30 Rock star was ordered to wear the band - known as a Scram bracelet - in May, after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in New York last year, an offence which violated his probation from a previous Dui arrest in Los Angeles in December 2005. A hearing at Los Angeles County Court last week heard that Morgan was unable to continue wearing the bracelet because of an undisclosed medical condition, according to Tmz.com. And on Tuesday a judge agreed Morgan no longer has to wear the monitoring device after studying photos of the funnyman's medical problem. The judge also ruled the comedian has now completed his probation for drunk-driving. »
Comedian Tracy Morgan has been ordered to suffer another 80 days wearing an anti-alcohol bracelet after admitting violating probation by drinking booze. The 30 Rock star was handed the punishment during a progress report in court in Los Angeles on Tuesday. He was first fitted with the SCRAM device on May 25 after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in New York last year, which violated his probation from a previous DUI arrest in Los Angeles in December 2005. Morgan has one final chance to stay drink-free - if he violates probation once more, he faces a 30-day sentence in Los Angeles County Jail. The punishment came just two days after 30 Rock scooped Best Comedy Series at the Emmy Awards. »
Tracy Morgan has been tapped to host Spike TV's inaugural Guys Choice awards show, set to air at 10 p.m. June 13.
The awards, decided on by viewers, honor "the things guys love most" in the worlds of sports, music, film, TV and the Internet. The two-hour show, set to tape June 9 at CBS Radford in Los Angeles, also will feature tributes to veteran entertainers and rockers and include stand-up comedy and musical performances.
Each category features only two nominees, so it can be settled "mano a mano," Spike says. Nominees include Beyonce vs. Adriana Lima for hottest girl on the planet, Will Ferrell vs. Sacha Baron Cohen for "funniest M.F." and The Office's Rainn Wilson vs. Heroes' Masi Oka for coolest geek. In addition, James Gandolfini and George Clooney will vie for the kingpin award for guy of the year.
A Los Angeles judge has ordered comedian Tracy Morgan to wear an ankle bracelet detecting alcohol consumption and to complete five days of community service. In a New York court in February, Morgan pleaded guilty to drunk-driving in November 2006. He was ordered to enter a doctor-supervised alcohol program, undertake community service and avoid being arrested again for six months. However, the conditional discharge violated a previous drink-driving conviction relating to a December 2005 incident in Hollywood. So at a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Friday, Morgan was ordered to wear a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) device on his ankle, which will test for alcohol consumption every 30 minutes for 90 days. Should Morgan test positive for alcohol use, he will have to start the 90 day period again. If he tests positive twice he will be sent to jail for 30 days. The actor, who was not present at Friday's hearing, is due in court on May 25 when he will be fitted with the SCRAM device, reports Tmz.com. »
