According to the Coffee County Sheriff’s Department, deputies spotted David Brady selling what appeared to be narcotics, WZTV reported. He stood up when deputies approached him, threw a bag behind him and a bag of mushrooms fell from his waistband, deputies said.

Deputies searched him and found 37 pills made to look as if they were molly, a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception, 22 bags of fake mushrooms, approximately 1,000 hits of fake acid, 20 bags made to look like cocaine and an incense stick made to look like black tar heroin.

The arrest warrant said Brady told deputies he was “doing God's work by selling fake drugs,” WZTV reported.

Brady was charged with two counts of counterfeit controlled substances and will be extradited to Arkansas, where he is wanted in Franklin County on a felony bench warrant, WZTV reported.

Taylor Swift music returning to Spotify

Friday is the first day that Taylor Swift’s music catalog is available on Spotify after the singer pulled her music from the streaming service in 2014. 

>> Read more trending news 

Swift, 27, called for her music to be removed from Spotify in November 2014, claiming the streaming service did not fairly pay artists and rights holders for music streamed.

“I’m not willing to contribute my life’s work to an experiment that I don’t feel fairly compensates the writers, producers, artists and creators of this music,” she said at the time.

She pulled her music from Apple Music for a period of time for the same reason; Swift said artists and rights holders were not paid accurately during users’ first free three-month trial. Apple ultimately changed its policies, and Swift allowed her music to be streamed from the service.

Swift’s management said Thursday on social media that the singer would release her music to Spotify in celebration of the success of her last album, which was released last year.

“In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 million song certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight,” the statement said. 

Friday is the same day singer Katy Perry’s album, Witness, was released. 

Perry and Swift have publicly criticized one another and are known to have a personal feud.

“There’s a situation,” Perry told “Late Late Show” host James Corden last month. “Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it.”

Fans commented on social media, with many celebrating Spotify access to Swift’s music.

Singer Mary J. Blige must pay ex-husband $30K per month

A judge has ordered singer Mary J. Blige to pay her ex-husband $30,000 per month in temporary spousal support, E! Online reported.

>> Read more trending news

Blige filed for divorce in 2016 after 13 years of marriage to Martin “Kendu” Isaacs, who also is her former manager. According to documents, Blige argued that the couple’s prenuptial agreement waived any spousal support. However, a judge ruled that Blige must pay the monthly support retroactively to September. That, along with her attorney fees, will cost the singer more than $235,000, TMZ reported.

Isaacs originally sought $129,319 per month, TMZ reported.

People reported that Blige claimed in court documents that Isaacs spent more than $420,000 during their marriage on “travel charges” that involved his girlfriend, not her.

Performing alongside duet partner and country superstar Keith Urban, the two delivered a cool new version of “The Fighter.” With the stage flooded in black with just two single spotlights illuminating the pair, the singers did a stripped-down version of the song, certainly upping the sexy quotient the slower they went. Yet by the end of the song, they had sped it up, much to the delight of Keith’s wife, Nicole Kidman, who could be seen dancing in the audience.
