DMX WAS supposed to appear in a White Plains, N.Y., court Wednesday to face a slew of bad-driving charges, but when he failed to show, the judge who had already granted him two postponements had had enough. Judge Barbara Leak issued an arrest warrant for the rapper (aka Earl Simmons). "We have granted him a number of courtesies," the judge said. "It ends now. " DMX's lawyer, Stacey Murray, promised that he would come to court yesterday. He did. And he went to jail - held on $25,000 bail.

Frank Tepper's fate was sealed months ago, when a Common Pleas Court jury convicted the former Philadelphia police officer of first-degree murder for shooting a 21-year-old neighbor outside his Port Richmond home in 2009. Another jury was handed a more complex set of questions on Monday: Was Tepper's killing of Billy Panas part of a pattern of predictable rogue behavior that went unchecked during his 16 years as a police officer? If so, should the city be held accountable? Or was Tepper a "drunken idiot" acting on his own?

YESTERDAY, when it had become clear that Arnold Schwarzenegger had diddled a member of his household staff, there was some question as to what the then-unnamed woman did. Personal assistant? Nanny? Cook? Nope, Mildred Patty Baena was a maid. As if there was any doubt. The woman who mussed up Maria Shriver 's sheets, also washed them. Here are the other updates to one of the creepiest tales since the Brothers Grimm . The "event," as Arnold referred to it in his statement (not even giving it the dignity of a "special event")

Stephen Berg is a stay-at-home father and blogger It was pure serendipity that we adopted our son from Cambodia. While working in human resources at Marshall Field & Co., I befriended an 80-year-old children's department employee named Annie Carr. Though deeply religious - a dyed-in-the-wool Catholic - Annie wanted nothing more than to see us boys have a baby. Scott and I were exploring an adoption from China. One afternoon I returned from lunch to a frantic and breathless voice mail from Annie: "Steve, I've found a baby for you and Scott.

DID THEY or didn't they? The Star said Saturday that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had been married in New Orleans. People, however, said they're in Texas where Brad is filming Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life. " The pair's publicist agreed with People, saying that the wedding story was wrong. Yesterday, the Star took a step back from the tale. But in the fascinating whisper-down-the-lane way that even false stories gain momentum, "Extra" spoke with Rev. Tony Talavera, of the French Quarter Wedding Chapel, so that he could insist that he had not married the couple.

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Eric Karros will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee today and is expected to be out three to six weeks, ending his streak of 267 consecutive games played for the Dodgers. Dr. Ralph Gambardella examined Karros yesterday and decided on surgery because he suspects cartilage damage. Karros has had persistent pain in his left knee this spring that hasn't responded well to treatment, team physician Frank Jobe said. Karros returned to Los Angeles Friday from the Dodgers' camp in Vero Beach, Fla. Karros, 30, batted .266 with 31 home runs and 104 RBI last year.

Paul McCartney and his bride, Heather Mills, were honeymooning Friday in the Seychelles and were believed to be staying on one of the Indian Ocean archipelago's private islands, Fregate Island - coincidentally home to one of the world's rarest beetles. The McCartneys flew down from Belfast on Thursday after their lavish wedding. No one will say for sure on which of the more than a dozen privately owned islands they've beached, but Fregate, the most exclusive one, also hosts the giant tenebroid beetle.

As Kesha Coley and Tanisha Conyers sat in their final session of the Stork's Nest program, they listened to a pediatrician talk about the benefits of breast-feeding. The young women learned that their babies would be able to tell the difference between their milk and formula. "I learned important lessons about how to take care of my baby," said Coley, a Burlington City resident who is due to give birth next week. "I learned about this program from my doctor. " As a part of the program, Coley and Conyers were given a baby shower earlier this month and were able to spend the points they had earned as incentives for their participation on additional baby supplies, such as clothes, diaper bags and bottles.
