Video: Rent-A-Cop Utterly Fails At Handing Out Justice




Security guards just get no respect man.

Take this short video for instance. I'm assuming skateboarding is not allowed on the premises, so a dude's got to do what a dude's got to do. Being the trustworthy security guard he is he shoos off all the offenders, but seems to be irritated by one of them, so he yanks him off of his board.

Are security guards allowed to do that?

Too bad the guy completely fails and lets all of them get away. At the end when our security friend watches the culprits scatter you can almost see his heart break.

Fight the power man.

Washington Wizards star John Wall joined us on air today to talk about the incident he had with his limo driver a couple weeks ago at NBA Summer league here in Las Vegas. Wall explained his side of the story after being called out publicly for supposedly not tipping the driver. The story made national news and labeled Wall a "bad tipper." John explained how the $27 tip was already added to the bill for the service and that he was the first to be dropped off at the hotel. John figured that the other two passengers would compensate the driver considering that it was his coach and handler. Wall also explained that he always tips good and was unfairly outed as someone who does not tip. Check out what Wall has to say here.

The John Wall interview sparked a wave of incoming texts and calls concerning tipping in the service industry here in town. Listeners were on both sides of the fence when it comes to the issue. Some callers stated that it is a must to compensate even if the service was bad or sub-par. Other callers said that you only tip according to the level of service you received, and if it was bad service than no tip is required. What do you think? Should you always leave a tip when being serviced? Or does the level of service determine the amount compensation that you give? You can hear what our listeners had to say about the issue here.

Video: Dodgers' Puig Tattoos The Ball With His Bat



 
Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig showed  how hard he can hit the ball recently at a team batting practice in Dodgers' Stadium. Puig cracked a ball so perfect that the signature from his bat left an imprint on the ball, giving the fan who caught it a one of a kind autograph.

There has also been a lot of talk lately about the second-year outfielder. Puig has only hit one home run since June 1 and had a disastrous showing in the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game. This had fans wondering what is wrong with Yasiel.

All that changed on Friday night. Puig returned to the lineup after missing time with a hand injury, and went 4-for-5 with a record-setting three triples, leading the Dodgers to an 8-1 win over the division-leading San Francisco Giants.

Puig shut down all doubters hitting the most triples in a single game in Los Angeles Dodgers history and it equals the franchise record set by Jimmy Sheckard in 1901.
 
Below is the video of Puig's work on Friday night at AT&T Park:
