'Ross Gellar' a.k.a. David Schwimmer helps cops solve stabbing

The one where "Ross" invites police into his New York City townhouse to help investigate a stabbing.

But really -- this happened.

"Friends" star David Schwimmer let investigators into his home to view surveillance video of an early-morning drunken fight involving three men in the adjacent apartment building, the New York Post reports.

The fight happened in a first-floor apartment in a building that adjoins the actor's home. Police said the brawl spilled into the hallway before the men smashed through a glass lobby door.

Officers said one of the men was taken to a nearby hospital for stab wounds to the face, the second ran off and a third person was arrested.

Only having two accounts of what happened, officers noticed Schwimmer's security camera.

Alright, Ross!!

Serial 'tickler' breaking into Boston College students' homes

Police said a man has reportedly been breaking into the homes of students who live near Boston College and watching them sleep and tickling their feet.

According to Boston.com, there have been at least 10 sightings of the so-called "tickler." Authorities said at least three students reported having encountered him on the same night, April 7.

One of the alleged victims said he had an encounter with the suspect, described as a 5 foot, 8 inch black male of unknown age in dark clothing and a hoodie.

"I thought my roommate had fallen down the steps," Teddy Raddell, a BC junior, told Boston.com. "But then he started yelling. I got up and he said that he had woken up to someone touching his feet."

Some reported that the man watched them through their windows as he committed a sex act.

However, authorities said there is no hard evidence in the cases. The person hasn't stolen any valuables, and there are no photos or video of the alleged tickler.

Police have encouraged area students to lock their doors.

50 Cent throws a pretty bad first pitch

So...this happened.

Rapper 50 cent threw the first pitch during Tuesday's Pirates-Mets game in New York. And it's quite possibly one of the worst.

It didn't seem to bother him, though. 50 Cent was spotted laughing and posing for pictures afterwards. He also posted a video on Instagram saying he's a "hustler" and not a baseball player.

Well said.
