Published

American R&B singer Patti LaBelle, referred to as the “Godmother of Soul,” was rushed off the stage of a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, theater mid-performance Saturday night reportedly over a bomb threat.

In a video captured from the audience’s vantage point at the Riverside Theater, the 78-year-old LaBelle, wearing an all-red gown, clasps onto a bouquet while speaking to the crowd through the microphone. 

Security suddenly rushes to her side, and LaBelle, taken off guard, shouts, “Hold up” and “Wait!” 

Three all-black-clad men force her to drop the flowers, and two of those security guards quickly usher her backstage. Her musicians quickly follow as the crowd roars in confusion.

“Tonight’s @MsPattiPatti show at the Riverside Theater has been postponed following a bomb threat investigated by the Milwaukee Police Department,” the event organizer, Pabst Theater Group, tweeted. “We are thankful for the efforts of the Milwaukee Police Department and our customers and staff for their safe and orderly exit.”

Texas deputies stop driver hauling 13 illegal immigrants wearing camouflage clothing

Published

Deputies in Zavala County, Texas, caught nearly two dozen illegal immigrants during four separate traffic stops early Sunday, including 13 migrants smuggled in a pickup truck while cloaked in camouflage clothing, authorities said.

In total, the sheriff’s office said it apprehended 22 illegal immigrants, while 10 others fled after bailing from the vehicles.

In one case, the sheriff’s office said a deputy stopped a black Chevy pickup for a traffic violation on U.S. 57 east of La Pryor. As the deputy went to speak with the driver, he spotted multiple individuals wearing camouflage clothing lying in the bed of the truck.

The deputy then found more individuals inside the vehicle with the driver, who claimed they were all her cousins, according to officials.
