According to the Los Angeles Police Department, badass New York Rangers forward Sean Avery was taken into custody early this morning in Los Angeles on a misdemeanor charge of battery on a police officer. According to TMZ, Avery has been accused of roughing up a police officer responding to a complaint about a noisy house party off Laurel Canyon Boulevard in the Hollywood Hills. The Los Angeles Times reported that Avery got pretty heated with one of the Los Angeles officers before pushing him and slamming the front door in his face. Avery was also quoted as calling the officers "fat little pigs" during the initial drama. More officers were then called to the scene and Avery was eventually taken into custody. His bail was set at $20,000 and Avery was held overnight. A spokesman for the New York Rangers said the team had no immediate comment, but did state: "We will discuss the matter with Sean." There has also been no official word from Avery as of yet.

Study Reveals the Obvious: Eating Healthy is Expensive

Anyone attempting to eat a balanced and healthy diet knows it's more expensive than schlepping to your local fast food retailer and ordering a bunch of items from the $1 menu. Now a new study reveals just how expensive it is to follow the federal government's new "My Plate" dietary guidelines and eat healthy. The study was conducted by the University of Washington who surveyed 2,001 residents of King County in Washington about their diet and nutrition. The study concluded that eating what the government wants you to consume would add $380 to your yearly grocery bill. The increase in cost comes from to need to increase fiber, calcium and other nutrients in your diet and reduce the amount of fat and sugar consumed. The authors of the study wrote, "Dietary recommendations need to become more sensitive to the economic constraints faced by consumers, particularly those in the most vulnerable segments of society, who bear a disproportionate burden of obesity and chronic disease." Some 15 percent of American households claim they don't have enough money to eat how they want!
