Macklemore was involved in a head-on car crash last Friday. The rapper, 34, was traveling with two other passengers in Langley, Washington when an alleged drunk driver hit them head on around 11 p.m. The on-coming driver was riding in a pickup truck and wasn’t wearing a seat belt when he came around a bend crossing over the traffic lane. After slamming into the windshield, the driver suffered a head wound and was left unconscious. Macklemore, who was driving a Mercedes Benz, walked away without major injuries. A passenger in Macklemore’s vehicle was treated for a cut on the head. Authorities questioned the alleged drunk driver, who said he had a drink “awhile back.” When quizzed on the amount of booze he drank, the unidentified driver responded “5 o’clock.” He’ll be charged with DUI.

In addition, several I-90 and I-5 ramps will also close between 30 minutes to an hour before each practice and show time.

Seven Priests walk into a bar… and get turned away. A British pub has apologized for turning away a group of trainee priests after mistaking them for rowdy bachelor-party revelers in costume.  The Archdiocese of Cardiff said that seven Roman Catholic seminarians went to the City Arms in Cardiff, Wales, last week to celebrate the ordination of one of the group.  Father Michael Doyle said the clerics were turned away by a doorman, who told them “sorry gents, we have a policy of no fancy dress and no stag dos.”  Doyle said the group was reprieved when a bar manager realized the clergyman were real. They were allowed in and given a round of beer on the house. Assistant manager Matt Morgan said “thankfully they were all great sports and saw the funny side of the situation.” (Read more from AP News)
