Eye Doctor and His Daughter Arrested For Growing and Selling Weed

Authorities raided the home of a Main Line eye doctor Wednesday morning and pulled marijuana plants and other drug paraphernalia out.

Police could be seen going in and out of the home along the 200 block of Sagamore Road in Havertown, Pa. around 8:30 a.m.

Haverford Township Police said that officers raided the home because of an anonymous tip received about three weeks ago reporting that a Delaware County eye doctor was growing pot out of his home.

Police said the tip stated “…it has come to my attention that Dr. (Paul) Ezell is growing marijuana at his residence and selling it to his patients and other individuals. Since he is a doctor and places himself in a position of trust, I though you should be aware of this…”

Early Wednesday, narcotics officers went to the home of Havertown ophthalmologist Dr. Ezell who has an office on West Chester Pike (Route 3) in Havertown to investigate the claims. Ezell also has experience treating patients for glaucoma, cataracts and other eye disorders.

Police confirmed Ezell, 58, and his 23-year-old daughter Victoria Ezell were home when the raid took place early Wednesday and taken into police custody.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later you could see police taking large green plants and bags from the home. In total, police said they removed more than one dozen pot plants — some taller than 2 feet. More than $1,200 in cash, a computer and scales used to weigh drugs were also removed from the home, according to police.

According to investigators, there was enough marijuana in the basement to bring in $30,000 to $40,000 a year. Police still have not yet determined how long the operation was going on however.

“The operation was in various stages,” said Haverford Township Police Lieutenant Charles Moore. “There was one stage set up for very young marijuana plants, one stage in another area of the basement where the plants would be mid-growth and another section where they were just about ready to be harvested.”

In spite of the tip, police say they have not yet confirmed whether Ezell was selling the marijuana to his patients.

“The information as far as selling to his patients is just a tip at this point,” Moore said. “We have not confirmed that. Our investigation is still ongoing.”

Police said Ezell lives in the home with his daughter. Both were set to be arraigned Wednesday on drug dealing, drug possession, criminal conspiracy and related charges.

A neighbor who asked not to be identified said Ezell’s wife died last year and that Ezell never caused any problems in the neighborhood.

A worker at Jahnle Eye Associates in Havertown said that Ezell only worked a handful of hours a week at that location and that he saw most his patients at an office in Langhorne, Pa.

A pizza deliveryman was shot last night by two Philadelphia police officers that he may have thought were fake cops. And those officers told police investigators they believed the young man was about to run them down in his Ford Taurus.

“At this time it just appears to be unfortunate for both the officers and this person,” said Deputy Police Commissioner Richard Ross on Wednesday, describing what police believe happened.

The victim, 20-year-old Philippe Holland, was delivering pizza for Slices and More Pizzeria and Grill in Upper Darby. It’s his night job, according to his boss, Tony Spirokostas.

“He had two jobs. He had a day job at the airport; was going to school at Delaware County,” said Spirokostas, who describes Holland as quiet, humble, respectful and hard-working.

Holland’s delivery was near 51st Street and Willows Avenue in the Kingsessing section of the city, just before 10 p.m. on Tuesday night. At that same time, the two officers — who were not in uniform — came to the neighborhood after hearing gunshots.

“They responded to gunshots. They’re surveying the area and they see this male walking with a hoodie,” Ross said. “He’s got his hands in his pocket and at that time, they order him to stop, and identify themselves.”

Ross said police think it is possible that Holland did not hear the officers identify themselves, or that he may have thought they were fake cops.

“We believe, unfortunately, that he also is of the belief that he is being robbed,” Ross said.

At that point, police say Holland got back in his car and started to back up.

“And at that time, he’s in his vehicle and he proceeds toward them. They [the officers] believe they’re being run over. And they fire their weapon,” Ross said.

Holland was shot in the leg, the neck and the head. He is in critical but stable condition at the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania.

The 12th District officers have been taken off the street, which is standard procedure, while their case is investigated by the Internal Affairs division of the Philadelphia Police Department.

“Unfortunately, it just appears like it’s a set of circumstances that no one could have predicted and we’re just hopeful that this male survives,” Ross said.

In the Upper Darby neighborhood where Holland lives, neighbor Roy Taylor said he is praying that Holland returns home healthy and soon.

“It’s awful. It’s a shame. He’s a great person. Good neighbor. Do anything for you,” Taylor said. “When I heard, I just couldnt’ believe it.”

I swear these Drake jokes on the internet basically write themselves now a days. You don’t even a have to fabricate a situation to make the Canadian rapper seems corny anymore; he’s doing all the work for us.

Drake was recently at a Nets vs. Raptors Playoff series game sitting courtside, when for some reason the Young Money MC decided there was just TOO MUCH LINT on his pants.

No one’s know for sure if the lint roller was requested by the rapper during the Playoff game or if Drake just happened to have a travel size roller on him for emergencies, but he used the shit while sitting courtside like he was at home and about to head out for the night.

Even the dude next to him is like “Nigga what are you doing? You know they taping this shit right?”

Apparently the rapper is taking the shots online all in stride, as he’s already uploaded a picture of himself at the game with the lint roller with the caption “Lint rollers on deck” and another with the word LINT crossed out (LINT).

Well, as long as he knows that shit was weird too; might as well use it for publicity.

I bet Macklemore was so proud when he uploaded a picture to Instagram of his personalized Jordans. But then the internet saw his salmon sneakers, and all hell broke lose!

The Grammy winning rapper received waves and waves of internet insults for his choice in sneaker aesthetic, with the main complaint being the color.

Of course I’m sure Macklemore couldn’t care less about the criticism, because not was he given the privilege to design his own J0rdan sneaker, but he also snapped a selfie with the legendary athlete himself, Michael Jordan.

While I’m not one to hate (although coral was never my color) the fact that he made the ENTIRE fucking sneaker pink is just gross.

It looks like he’s holding the inside of a vagina in sneaker form.

Just saying. Gross.

There’s nothing worse than being blackmailed by someone for shit you probably don’t really care for or forgot about; especially when it’s for a lot of money.

Just ask Jay Z. Why someone would want to TRY and extort money from Hov I will never know, but Chauncey Mahan, a producer who worked with the rapper years ago, gave it his best shot.

Mahan came across some of Hov’s old master tracks that he did between 1998-2000, and decided to contact Live Nation and tell them about the tracks; and that he wanted $100,000 in exchange for them (he called it a “storage fee”).

Jay’s people immediately called the LAPD, who surprised Mahan when he arrived for a private meeting with Jay’s people to exchange the tracks for an agreed $75,000.

Mahan was detained by the cops, but so far no arrest has been made. In the mean time, Jay’s camp has filed a complaint against the producer.

TMZ was able to catch up with Chauncey, who defended his actions by explaining his reasons for keeping the tracks for so long and the “storage fee” money that he wanted.

“What’s more, over the last 10 years, Chauncey says he’s repeatedly notified Jay Z’s people that he was in possession of the masters, and they blew him off. He says he finally asked for money last week when he could no longer afford to keep the masters in storage.”

Chauncey added that Jay was just “a stupid kid smoking blunts” back then and it was Def Jam who asked the producer to hold on to the tracks “because no one else was doing it.”

As much as you want to give someone the benefit of the doubt, it’s hard to believe that Mahan wanted to get rid of the master tracks but never mailed them, dropped them off, or arranged for a pick up. No, he just kept them… for 12 fucking years!

But he wanted that $100,000 for a 12 year storage fee though.
