Kevin Durant was just trying to get into his tinted-windowed car and leave the club Friday night. Paparazzi filmed and photographed him as he waited for his ride, asking questions about his injury and how he’s healing.

Seems that Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s recently signed in Religious Freedom Restoration Act has done little to help a Rastafarian man trying to get his felony marijuana charges reduced.
Last week Indiana Superior Court Judge Jane Woodward Miller rejected a defense argument that charges against Jerome Scott, 30, should be reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor because he is a practicing member of the Rastafarian faith, which believes in the open use of cannabis for religious purposes.
