  • A popular NYC weather forecaster, who occasionally appeared on "Good Morning America," was suspended from her job and criminally charged Wednesday with filing a false police report. Heidi Jones, of WABC-TV, told police in November a man tried to rape her as she ran through Central Park a month earlier and then showed up at her apartment building a few days before she filed the report. Police said Jones later confessed she was going through relationship troubles and made up the story in a bid for sympathy, the New York Daily News reported. Her lawyer told the AP she would plead not guilty.

  • DMX, the once-popular rapper now better known for his rap sheet, has been sent to prison for one year for violating the terms of his probation by driving on a suspended license and failing to submit to drug tests, the AP reports.
