Kenny Britt, a former first-round NFL draft pick, was arrested in New Jersey on drug charges Saturday, police said.

Britt, who played in the NFL from 2009 to 2017 with the Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Rams, Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots, was arrested after a traffic stop in Bayonne, police Capt. Eric Amato said. Officers smelled a strong odor of marijuana emanating from his vehicle, according to NJ.com.

Britt was charged with possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana and was given a summons for possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a vehicle and obstructing the passage of other vehicles, police said. He was released from custody on a summons, according to NJ.com.

The 31-year-old lives in Nashville, Tenn., but was a standout player at Bayonne High School before going off to Rutgers. The Titans selected him with the No. 30 pick in the 2009 draft.

Britt pleaded guilty to careless driving in Bayonne in June 2011 after he was caught driving 71 mph in a 50 mph zone, according to NJ.com. One day later, he was charged with resisting arrest in Hoboken but eventually pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace.

What is a nor’easter? The classic East Coast storms explained

For residents along the East Coast, the term “nor’easter” conjures up thoughts of plowable snow, wind and heavy rain.

According to the National Severe Storms Laboratory, the official definition of a nor’easter is a strong low-pressure system that impacts the Mid-Atlantic and New England states. The storm systems can form over the land of the eastern U.S. or over the coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

“These winter events are notorious for producing heavy snow, rain, and tremendous waves that crash onto Atlantic beaches, often causing beach erosion and structural damage,” according to the NSSL. “Wind gusts associated with these storms can exceed hurricane force in intensity.”

LAKE EFFECT SNOW: HERE’S HOW IT IMPACTS THE GREAT LAKES

The storms get their names from the continuously strong northeasterly winds blowing in from the ocean ahead of the storm and over the coastal areas.

Westlake Legal Group NOAA-GOES-East What is a nor'easter? The classic East Coast storms explained Travis Fedschun fox-news/weather fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast fox-news/us/disasters/nor-easter fox-news/us/disasters/disaster-response fox-news/us/disasters fox news fnc/us fnc article 0d94c29c-4505-58f4-8c2f-1ec6d49d141d

A powerful nor’easter can be seen in January 2018 impacting the Northeast states. (NOAA)

“What makes them so strong is the warm and moist air from the Atlantic that feeds the storm, causing it to grow explosively,” according to the NSSL.

The National Weather Service says that nor’easters usually develop in the latitudes between Georgia and New Jersey, within 100 miles east or west of the East Coast. The storms may occur at any time of the year but are more frequent and violent between September and April.

The East Coast of the U.S. provides an “ideal breeding ground for the storms,” according to forecasters.

WINTER STORM WARNING VS. WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: HERE’S THE DIFFERENCE

The polar jet stream in winter transports cold Arctic air southward across the plains of Canada and the U.S., then eastward toward the Atlantic Ocean. At the same time, warm air from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic tries to move northward.

Nor’easters are responsible for the biggest snowstorms on record from the Mid-Atlantic to New England. (Fox News)

“The warm waters of the Gulf Stream help keep the coastal waters relatively mild during the winter, which in turn helps warm the cold winter air over the water,” the NWS states. “This difference in temperature between the warm air over the water and cold Arctic air over the land is the fuel that feeds nor’easters.”

Depending on the amount of cold air available and how closely the storms move up the East Coast, nor’easters can produce impressive amounts of snow and are responsible for the biggest snowstorms on record from the Mid-Atlantic to New England, according to Fox News meteorologist Brandon Noriega.

The track of the storms near Gulf Stream and the ocean off the East Coast allows ample moisture for “intense” rain and, or snow. Total snowfall of one to three feet is common with the most intense nor’easters.

“Past nor’easters have been responsible for billions of dollars in damage, severe economic, transportation and human disruption, and in some cases, disastrous coastal flooding,” according to the NWS. “Damage from the worst storms can exceed a billion dollars.”

Renee Zellweger pays tribute to ‘courageous men and women in uniform’ during Oscar speech

Renee Zellweger made sure American military service members weren’t forgotten during her acceptance speech at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday night.

The 50-year-old won best actress for her performance as the late Hollywood icon Judy Garland in the biopic “Judy.” During her speech, Zellweger thanked the American military for their service.

“I have to say that this past year of conversations celebrating Judy Garland across genders and … I’m sorry, it’s across generations and across cultures has been a really cool reminder that our heroes unite us. No, the best among us who inspire us to find the best in ourselves,” said Zellweger.

“They unite us,” she continued. “When we look to our heroes, we agree, and that matters. Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride, Dolores Huerta, Venus and Serena and Selena, Bob Dylan, Scorsese, Fred Rogers, Harriet Tubman. We agree on our teachers, and we agree on our courageous men and women in uniform who serve. We agree on our first responders and firefighters. When we celebrate our heroes, we’re reminded of who we are as one people united.”

The actress also paid tribute to Garland, who passed away in 1969 at age 47 from a barbiturate overdose.

“No, Judy Garland did not receive this honor in her time,” noted the star. “I am certain that this moment is an extension of the celebration of her legacy that began on our film set. It’s also representative of the fact that her legacy of unique exceptionalism and inclusivity and generosity of spirit, it transcends any one artistic achievement. Miss Garland, you are certainly among the heroes who unite and define us, and this is certainly for you. I am so grateful.”

Zellweger also thanked her “immigrant folks,” who inspired her to pursue the American dream. She previously told People magazine her mother endured a difficult childhood in Norway during World War II. The outlet also noted her father immigrated from Switzerland.

“My immigrant folks who came here with nothing but each other and a belief in the American dream. How about this?” said Zellweger while holding her Oscar.

Before her Oscar win, Zellweger recalled her mother’s tumultuous upbringing before arriving in America.

“She was a tiny girl in World War II,” she explained to People magazine. “There’s a World War II museum in New Orleans, it’s an extraordinary experience. We walked it all and we were looking in the glass cases and my mom’s like, ‘Oh,’ and she pointed at a series of hand grenades. There were a bunch of hand grenades in the case and she said, ‘We used to play with those ones. Not those ones, not those ones, but those ones. We used to play with those!’“

“She was living in an occupied country and there were bullets falling from the sky and you had to run inside because that was part of your day. And you’d find one every now and then,” Zellweger continued. “It was a real treat apparently. ‘Don’t pull the pin! You better run!’ And when you think about that being your reality as a child, can you imagine the value system that you establish? And my brother and I have been the beneficiaries of that. She’s cool.”

Russell Wilson’s Hair Just Had The Busiest 3 Days In History

Russell Wilson let his hair down over the weekend, and did a few other things to it as well.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback sported three different looks, the first of which prompted a Twitter meltdown.

After posting a shot of his longer, teased locks from the Tom Ford fashion show in Los Angeles with wife Ciara on Friday, the one-time Super Bowl champ got called out by many for a style fumble. Some people on Twitter compared his look to Prince, John Stamos and George Michael. (See the fun tweets below.)

“So this is what you’re doing w your extension money,” one user wrote, referring to the massive contract Russell signed recently.

Sure, some loved the new look as well.

On Sunday afternoon, the NFL star was spotted at his sister Anna’s Stanford senior day basketball game at Stanford University with a more tamped-down look.

If the Seahawks’ offense could change this fast, maybe the team could have advanced to the Super Bowl this time around. 

People on social media couldn’t get over that first ’do, though.

What would the Iowa recanvass process look like?

With uncertainty still swirling around the results of the Iowa caucuses, the campaign for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., indicated Sunday night that it will ask the party to recanvass parts of the state’s results, triggering a process many are unfamiliar with.

Less than an hour after the results posted Sunday, the Sanders campaign announced that it would seek a partial recanvass of some precincts in which there were apparent irregularities, Fox News has confirmed. The Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) has allowed campaigns to call for a recanvass until Monday at 1 p.m. ET. The results released by the IDP show Sanders trailing Buttigieg by a small margin.

But what would a recanvass look like in Iowa? And how is it different from a recount?

IOWA DEMOCRATIC PARTY AWARDS BUTTIGIEG 14 DELEGATES, SANDERS 12 AFTER CAUCUS MELTDOWN

A recanvass involves simply checking the math used to tabulate the results from each caucus location. The IDP provides “Mathematics Worksheets” to caucus sites that would be consulted in the recount process, according to its delegate selection plan.

damning analysis by The New York Times last week found that the Iowa Democratic Party’s figures were full of apparent errors, in which vote numbers from several precincts did not match totals provided by the party, and in which numerous precincts seemingly didn’t follow caucus rules.

The recanvass requested by the Sanders campaign would likely focus on precincts where such irregularities have been reported rather than the entire state, as the campaign did confirm it would request a “partial” recanvass. The state party would provide the location for the recanvass and observers from the presidential campaigns or the public would be allowed in the room, according to the Des Moines Register.

A recount, however, would involve going through each individual vote once again and tabulating the results of the caucus independent from the previous count. The party’s Delegate Selection Plan provides for the “Presidential Preference Cards” that record who each voter caucused for in both the first round and second round of the caucus to be preserved for this purpose, but they would not be used in a recanvass.

The Des Moines Register reported that a manual for the recanvass requires candidates to provide evidence of which precincts have irregularities. That should not be difficult for the Sanders campaign, which has already pointed out 14 precincts with results it questioned. It would also have to provide evidence in its request due Monday that the error or errors could have affected how many delegates the candidates will receive to the national convention this summer, the Register reported.

Currently, Buttigieg is slated to get 14 delegates and Sanders 12.

Fox News’ Gregg Re and Andrew Craft contributed to this report.

XFL Week 1 recap: Rebooted football league returns to national spotlight

The XFL made its return to the national spotlight over the weekend and received some positive reviews about the quality of play, unconventional rule changes and other things.

All of the teams were in action as several familiar faces took the field including, Matt McGloin for the New York Guardians, Cardale Jones for the DC Defenders and Matt Jones for the St. Louis BattleHawks. Bob Stoops, of the Dallas Renegades, and Jerry Glanville, of the Tampa Bay Vipers, also returned to the sidelines to coach their respective teams.

NEW XFL KICKS OFF WITH ENTERTAINING DEBUT BETWEEN DC DEFENDERS, SEATTLE DRAGONS

Here were the scores from the weekend in the XFL.

DEFENDERS 31, DRAGONS 19

ROUGHNECKS 37, WILDCATS 17

GUARDIANS 23, VIPERS 3

BATTLEHAWKS 15, RENEGADES 9

Here are some moments you may have missed.

FIRST XFL TOUCHDOWN: The Seattle Dragons put the first XFL touchdown on the board against the DC Defenders. Quarterback Brandon Silvers found Austin Proehl for a 14-yard touchdown pass. Proehl is the son of former NFL wide receiver Ricky Proehl – who was a two-time Super Bowl champion.

NICK HOLLEY BACK ON A FIELD: Nick Holley made his debut with the Houston Roughnecks on Saturday. He never found longevity in the NFL because of injuries. But after three torn ACLs and a broken back, he told FOX Sports’ Brock Huard why he keeps playing the game. He had four catches for 50 yards in the Roughnecks’ win.

DC DEFENDERS BLOCKED PUNT: The Defenders showed off their special teams’ prowess against the Dragons. In the second quarter, Defenders player Jonathan Celestin recovered a blocked punt and scored a touchdown. The score was a part of a high-scoring affair for DC.

FIRST XFL EJECTION: While the XFL had a bunch of firsts in its opening weekend, nobody probably saw the league’s first ejection happening. Tampa Bay Vipers defensive tackle Ricky Walker became the first player to get ejected when he threw a punch at New York Guardians center Ian Silberman.

FANS GET WEIRD: Guardians fans packed the lower bowl of MetLife Stadium for the first game of the season. There was one moment where fans were spotted eating cheese straight out of the plastic wrapping and looking directly into the camera. It caught even the broadcasters off guard.

Who was the first to live in the White House?

As the country gets set to commemorate Presidents Day, it’s time to reflect on the most famous address in the world: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington.

That’s the White House — the president’s official residence in the nation’s capital.

The first president, George Washington, chose the location in 1791, but never lived there.

John Adams and his wife, Abigail, were the first occupants of the President’s House, moving into the unfinished structure in 1800.

Fourteen years later, British troops burned it to the ground during the War of 1812.

IMPEACHMENT WITNESS VINDMAN FIRED, ESCORTED OUT OF WHITE HOUSE AFTER TRUMP ACQUITTAL

The original architect, Irish-born James Hoban, was appointed to rebuild the house, and President James Monroe and his wife, Dolley, took residence in 1817.

The building’s South Portico was constructed during Monroe’s administration in 1824.

The North Portico was built in 1829 under President Andrew Jackson.

Construction of the Oval Office — the president’s work quarters — took place in 1909 when Howard Taft was president as part of a project to expand the executive wing.

TRUMP HONORS WASHINGTON NATIONALS’ WORLD SERIES VICTORY AT WHITE HOUSE

In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, Ellen, planted the outdoor White House Rose Garden, the backdrop for press conferences, bill signings and special ceremonies.

The White House Residence comprises 132 rooms and 35 bathrooms, and has six levels. Additionally, there are 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, eight staircases and three elevators.

Painters need 570 gallons of paint to cover the outside surfaces.

President Theodore Roosevelt officially gave the White House its current name in 1901 on his presidential stationery.

Jim Daly: Valentine’s Day — What dads want

Valentine’s Day is traditionally reserved for romantic dinners, flowers, chocolate and clothing the world in red. It’s a time to express devotion and appreciation to our significant other.

But parenthood often changes us in ways big and small, readjusting our values and priorities, even on a holiday set aside for amorous fun.

The origin of Valentine’s Day is one of those traditions enshrouded in mystery – part history and part legend. Some people believe the Catholic Church reimagined the pagan fertility festival of Lupercalia, which was held each February 15th – and instead refocused attention on Saint Valentine, a martyred priest who defied the emperor’s orders and married lovers in secret.

KRISTINA HERNANDEZ: VALENTINE’S DAY – HERE’S WHAT MOMS WANT

Regardless of where the facts end and the fiction begins, Valentine’s Day has become big business. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend $27.4 billion this year – up from just over $20 billion in 2019.

That’s a lot of chocolate and red roses!

Cute little girl celebrating Valentine’s day with parents, family and herself, holding heart shape decorations, home interior.

But what do men really want for Valentine’s Day – especially fathers?

More than anything, men want to be loved and respected by their wives – and loved by their children, to the point their kids enjoy spending time with them.

Society often depicts fathers as bumbling fools, but being a dad is hard work. The demands they feel are very real – there’s the boss at the office and the bills that never stop.

Just when you think you’re getting ahead, the hot water heater blows out or the car breaks down. After a long day of work, you have to referee squabbles at home, taxi kids to practices and spend your Saturday mornings down at the ballfield.

More than anything, men want to be loved and respected by their wives – and loved by their children, to the point their kids enjoy spending time with them.

And if you don’t work, the kids won’t eat and the mortgage will be foreclosed on – so, no pressure.

But the parenting season is so brief and so quick that it’s only the short-sighted father who doesn’t try to maximize time with his kids. So, good dads keep trying to find points of connection with the family.

Both of my boys are in their late teens now, and if I could, I would turn back the clock and relive highlights of the past.

But I can’t. None of us can.

What does this father want this year? To say thank you and happy Valentine’s day to my beautiful wife, Jean. She has been there for me and our boys through good times and bad. I want to thank her for her love and bask in her love reflected back at me. THAT is the best Valentine’s gift of all.
