Is Rock and Roll Here to Stay?
Originally reported by United Press International

Kate Winslet and her third husband, Ned Rocknroll, may have just had a child together, but many Titanic fans are still waiting for the 38-year-old actress to get together with her occasional co-star and best friend, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Though both actors have denied ever having a romantic relationship, Winslet told Pop Sugar at the premiere of her latest film, Divergent, that DiCaprio is probably the “love of [her] life.”

Breaking News: As thrilled as I am to hear that Kate thinks of Leo as probably the love of her life, I am stunned by the revelation that her third husband is named Ned Rocknroll. I’ve got to do a better job of keeping up.

Game Interrupted
Originally reported by United Press International

A Texas woman who claimed she was hit by a golf ball on her birthday has sued the course and a golfer whom she says just wiped blood off the ball and kept playing.

The lawsuit filed by Maureen Percenti names Craig Rooker of Austin and the Grey Rock Golf Course as defendants, Courthouse News Service reported.

In court papers, Percenti said she was hit by a ball during a backyard birthday celebration. She said she was knocked out by the impact and that Rooker showed up soon after, looking for his ball.

“Plaintiff's son-in-law told defendant Rooker that his golf ball had hit plaintiff in the head and directed him to the ball, which was covered in blood,” the complaint said. “Defendant Rooker wiped plaintiff’s blood off of his ball and continued playing his golf game.”

Defendant Rooker appears to be a true golfer.

Family Feud
Originally reported by United Press International

Florida Authorities said they were called to stop a fight between two brothers who used a knife, a garbage can, and a shovel as weapons.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy responded to a call from a Niceville neighbor who said that Thomas Mealer had been arguing with his brother loudly all day. The woman also said that she witnessed Mealer strike his brother in the head with a shovel.

Mealer’s brother was bleeding from his forehead, and the deputy discovered a shovel that appeared to have human hair stuck to a corner.

Mealer, who, according to the deputy, “appeared highly intoxicated,” told the deputy that the argument started when his brother said that no one in their family loved or cared about Mealer.

Maybe not a good time for “tough love.”

Food Fight
Originally reported by United Press International

A North Carolina senior citizen who allegedly started a food fight at the Golden Corral in Wilkesboro was taken to jail and charged with two counts of assault and battery. According to Wilkesboro police, 64-year-old Polly Richards instigated a fight with 69-year-old Linwood Moore after he cut ahead of her in line to pay while she was preoccupied with getting a drink.

Witnesses saw Richards curse at Moore and shove him against the wall after grabbing his shirt. At some point during the altercation, Moore was also slapped in the face. During the incident, Richards also allegedly threw a plate that cracked 62-year-old Fay Cardwell in the leg and caused swelling on her shin and knee.

It’s getting rough out there on the Early Dine front.
