Some people say good things come to those who wait. Truth is, good things come to those who work. Introducing the all new 2012 Chrysler 300S.
Producer Shawty Redd, who is charged with the New Year’s Day murder of 35-year-old Damon Martin, was released from jail on Tuesday (January 12), according to Captain Jason Bolton of the Henry County (Georgia) Police and a representative for the Henry County Superior Court Clerk. The producer (real name: Demetrius Lee Stewart), who has worked with Snoop Dogg and Young Jeezy, had his bail set at $200,000 at a hearing on Tuesday afternoon, the authorities said, and was given clear instructions not to leave Henry County and to wear an ankle bracelet.
Redd has a preliminary hearing tentatively set for February 3. At press time, his attorney, Marcia Fuller, had not responded to MTV News’ requests for comment.
Redd was arrested on January 1 after police responded to a call about an early morning shooting at Stewart’s home in Hampton, Georgia. According to police, the producer was involved in a physical altercation at his home with Martin, who was described as an “acquaintance.” The confrontation turned physical and Stewart shot and killed Martin, according to the report. Bolton told MTV News that Stewart himself called 911 to alert police about the shooting. Bolton also said Stewart was arrested a few hours later at police headquarters after more questioning by detectives.
Stewart appeared in court on Saturday without his attorney, and was granted another hearing to allow him legal representation. He remained in custody until Tuesday afternoon.
“I really couldn’t believe it,” one of Redd’s peers, producer Zaytoven, told MTV News last week. “You hear a lot of rappers going through that type of trouble, but a producer? That’s my first time hearing that. I was just shocked.

Nicole Richie, who first became famous on The Simple Life with then-best friend Paris Hilton, has signed a deal with ABC to star in a half-hour comedy.
Yes, we’re serious.
It’s not easy to transition to scripted shows from reality TV (or The Hills, for that matter, as Kristin Cavallari can attest), but Nicole is ready to try to.
The pilot for the as-yet-untitled show is based on Richie’s original idea and will be written by 30 Rock scribe Daisy Gardner.
“I am so excited to announce that I am officially working on a television project,” the mother of two wrote on her official blog. “I am creating a half hour scripted comedy developed for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing.”
“The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman’s role is: modern vs. traditional.”
“Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this changing era.”
“I’ve taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!),” Nicole Richie added. “We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!”
Richie’s show will likely shoot a pilot this spring. If ABC likes it, the series would presumably be picked up to premiere as part of its Fall 2010 lineup.
She was kinda cute in that Chuck episode she did last year, but can Nicole really shoulder her own show? Does it even sound any good? Thoughts?
