Fly on the Wall 

Players Club Revisited

In 2006, Fly on the Wall introduced its readers to the strange case of Telly Savalas Johnson, a Memphian who shares the better part of his name with the now-deceased actor famous for playing Kojak, TV's iconic, lollypop-licking cop. Johnson, now 24, was arrested after allegedly firing shots into a van full of people, striking a 4-year-old girl in the leg.

In honor of Johnson's recent conviction on five counts of attempted first-degree murder, let's all say it together: "Who loves ya, baby?"

Headlines!

According to the Memphis Business Journal, "IP to Shutter Virginia Mill." Even bad news brings a smile if it begins with "IP."

Swank Crank?

According to WREC radio's website, Sheriff Mark Luttrell announced the bust of a "sophisticated" meth lab in East Memphis. The Fly-Team doesn't know what that means exactly, unless the suburban tweaker's recipe calls for imported artisan drain cleaner.

Public Service

According to the AP, a routine traffic stop resulted in the arrest of two Memphis men on burglary charges after the passengers began "surreptitiously" tossing things such as rings, bracelets, and an iPod under the car. In such circumstances, it's always best to "surreptitiously" drop such items down your pants.
