A Florida man who impersonated singer Jason Aldean has been accused by police of defrauding an intellectually disabled woman for both money and physical relations.  A Tampa TV station reports that the man pretended to be Jason and asked the unidentified woman for $2,000.  She gave him a total of $230 over two occasions. Police say he also convinced the woman to have “physical relations” with him.  According to a police affidavit, the man admitted to taking the victim’s money and used it to fund his prescription pill addiction.

Kenny Chesney needed to make an apology for something he said at a concert in Philadelphia over the weekend.  Kenny mistakenly told the crowd that a local police officer, who had been shot seven times in the line of duty, had died…when in fact the officer was still in the hospital recovering from his wounds!  Kenny realized his boo-boo and later went to the hospital to visit the recovering policeman.  Kenny offered to take the officer to an Eagles’ football game and have a few beers when the policeman recovers!
