Jerry Springer is returning to daytime television, but his show will take place in a courtroom instead of on stage. The former host of the “Jerry Springer Show” inked a deal with NBC for “Judge Jerry”. Springer has a law degree from Northwestern University. And before he was a talk show host, he had a career in politics including a stint as the mayor of Cincinnati. “Judge Jerry” is expected to premiere in the fall of 2019.
A routine traffic stop turned into a surprise birthday. With a dash camera rolling, a state highway patrol trooper pulled over a speeding van. The trooper was confronted by a frantic man whose wife was in labor. The trooper called an ambulance, grabbed gloves and blanket then went to the car to help. EMS made it in enough time to deliver the couple’s baby girl. The newly-arrived Halyn Baker’s appearance was unexpected. She was not due until Wednesday.

Eventually the bear walked out the same way it came in, and was followed by two armed officers.
