Washington Wizards big man Nene has been suspended for one game by the NBA after grabbing, shoving and threatening to strike Chicago Bulls forward Jimmy Butler in Game 3 of their playoff series on Friday night. In a closely contested, back-and-forth game that Chicago eventually won, 100-97, the 6-foot-11 Brazilian was ejected with 8 1/2 minutes left in the fourth quarter after he took exception to Butler bumping into him and incited a brief scuffle. The two players jostled after the bump, coming toe to toe and forehead to forehead before Nene grabbed Butler around the neck.

WASHINGTON -- Once a month, a group of staff members from the House and Senate intelligence committees drives across the Potomac River to CIA headquarters in Virginia, assembles in a secure room and begins the grim task of watching videos of the latest drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen. Sometimes they see Hellfire missiles hit buildings after suspected terrorists have entered. Other times they can make out a group or a vehicle consumed in a fiery blast. Occasionally, a smaller explosion kills just one person, as officials say happened when a missile this month crashed into a room in Pakistan's tribal areas and killed Abu Yahya al Libi, Al Qaeda's No. 2. The videos are much sharper than the grainy drone imagery that can be viewed on the Web. "You can see exactly what is going on," said a senior congressional aide, who, like other officials, spoke about the highly classified program on the condition he not be identified.

A woman was videotaped over Easter weekend removing a large stuffed yellow duck from the grave of an Ohio child. Now, Frieda Kay Shade, 54, has been charged with theft. Ontario, Ohio, police set up a surveillance camera near the grave site of Hayden Cole Sheridan, nicknamed Tank, in July 2012 because the child's parents said items left there were continually disappearing, Detective Jon Sigler told the Los Angeles Times. It took two years, but now Scott and Jaclyn Sheridan believe they've caught a thief.

In light of the uproar over public funding of the National Endowment for the Arts, it is disturbing to find that the most obscene work in this country is being made by people who place such a low value on life in pursuit of prize money. Nothing in the work of Robert Mapplethorpe is as indecent to me as the hypocrisy in this: The endangerment of children and animals is considered humorous and rewarded in commercial forums, while policies of censorship and anti-intellectualism are pursued in the name of protecting morals.

As Tobias Funke, "Arrested Development's" doctor-turned-actor, David Cross has suffered many indignities, from wearing a ridiculous mustache in every episode to being turned completely blue. But to promote the imminent release of new "AD" episodes on Netflix, Cross is making the boldest step yet: He's putting himself in the hands of the fans, allowing them to inflict any indignities they want on him. Appearing in front of a green screen as Funke, Cross is offering six in-costume performances -- cowpoke, action hero, doctor, big man on campus, motorcycle ruffian and average fellow -- and asking fans (or any big-name Hollywood filmmaker)

Avril Lavigne has answered critics who've labeled her new "Hello Kitty" video as racist. It appears Ms. Lavigne begs to disagree. "RACIST??? LOLOLOL!!!

AMMAN, Jordan -- Video has surfaced that appears to show antitank guided missiles in the hands of a rebel faction operating in southern Syria, the latest indication that sophisticated U.S. weaponry is making its way to antigovernment fighters in Syria. The video, posted April 13 on YouTube, seems to depict a fighter from a group called the Omari Brigades firing a BGM-71 TOW missile at what appears to be a bunkered Syrian army tank. Although other videos circulating on the Internet have shown rebel groups in northern Syria firing TOW missiles, this marks the first time the U.S.-made weapon has appeared publicly in the arsenal of insurgents in southern Syria, a key front close to the Jordanian border.

After spending 2013 ensconced in Brooklyn, the MTV Video Music Awards return to Southern California this year, landing Aug. 24 at the Forum in Inglewood. It will mark the first awards show at the arena since it reopened earlier this year after a $100-million makeover by Madison Square Garden Co. "Every year we ask the question, 'How do we do it differently?'" MTV President Stephen Friedman told The Times. "We had never done it at the Forum. When we heard it was being overhauled and really elevated in terms of quality and sound and look, this year we felt like the Forum would be a perfect place to do it. " The VMA ceremony has been held in a variety of locations over the years, last year at the Barclays Center arena in Brooklyn, and previously at Staples Center and the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, and Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Over the last year, Lord Huron has quietly become one of the breakout stories of L.A. indie music. Like their kindred spirits Local Natives, the experimental folk project has road-dogged its way to selling out two nights at the Fonda Theatre earlier this year. Ben Schneider and his bandmates have cultivated a bit of Old West mystery along the way, and Lord Huron's new video for "Ends of the Earth" elaborates on that with a gorgeously animated new clip.  Director Kevin Donelan spins a silhouetted tale of an outlaw's lost love on the railroads.

After conquering the desert with star-studded sets at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival the last two weekends, Pharrell Williams' iron-clad grip on the pop conversation continues with his latest video, “Marilyn Monroe.” The video, which debuted Wednesday, doesn't boast much of a plot. It does, however, offer plenty of gorgeous women, flashy choreographed vignettes and lots of shots of his beloved, oversize hat. There's even an appearance by Kelly Osbourne. Here are five things we learned from watching: PHOTOS: Faces of Coachella 2014 1. He loves all kinds of women, OK. Pharrell faced some pretty harsh, and woefully unfair, criticism when he released the cover art to his album “Girl,” which featured him and three women all clad in robes and sunglasses.

Authorities are investigating if any more security video exists showing a teenager who bypassed security at a San Jose airport and stowed away in the wheel well of a Hawaii-bound jetliner. In a statement Monday, airport officials said they have video of the 15-year-old walking on the airport tarmac toward a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767 on Sunday, but it remains unclear how the teen got onto the tarmac. The   FBI   originally said video showed him scaling a fence. But late Monday, airport officials only mentioned a video that showed him walking on the tarmac.
