Hangover 2 settles lawsuit with Tattoo Designer


The tattoo artist who sued over Ed Helms’ tattoo in “The Hangover Part II” has settled his lawsuit over the design, which resembles the facial ink the artist created for Mike Tyson.
Warner Bros. spokesman Paul McGuire said Monday that the movie studio and S. Victor Whitmill amicably resolved their dispute. McGuire declined to discuss the case further.
In the movie, Helms’ character, Stu, wakes up in a Bangkok bathtub with a facial tattoo.
Whitmill claimed the filmmakers ripped off the design that he tattooed on Tyson in 2003 in Las Vegas. Whitmill now lives near Waynesville in south-central Missouri.
The lawsuit filed in federal court in St. Louis tried to block the film’s release, but a judge ruled just two days before the film’s May 26 debut that it could open as scheduled.

White Philly Cop Told to Lose Cornrows

Police in Philadelphia say a white officer who came to work with cornrows was ordered by a black superior to get a haircut because the braids violated department standards.
The Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday that Officer Thomas Strain was put on desk duty this month because of the braids, even though the paper reported dozens of black officers wear cornrows.
Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore says Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."
Vanore says officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.
Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.
