Entertainment

Sylvester Stallone may be 70 years old, but he’s still got a few tricks up his sleeve.

The one that’s getting the most attention, however, isn’t just Stallone in all his Balboa glory. The actor shared a shot of himself being hoisted into the air by Hulk Hogan (aka Terry Bollea) on the set of “Rocky III.”

“Another flashback and another reason why it's not such a great idea to always do your own stunts,” wrote Stallone. “I remember a violent move where he threw me into the corner, charged across the ring like an ENRAGED bull and leaped so amazingly high above me, that his shinbone actually came down giant tree on my collarbone, and I tumbled to the floor.”

It wasn’t just Stallone who took a beating. As he tells it, Hogan sent three stuntmen to the hospital after leaping into the audience during the infamous scene, which you can re-watch below:

Stallone seems a bit wistfully nostalgic for his turn as the Italian Stallion, despite his return to the role in 2015’s “Creed”: “Hulk, if you’re reading this, it was a privilege to be mangled by such a gentleman.”

Camesha Walters was a petty officer 3rd class living in Norfolk. Her husband was a foreign national living in Bangladesh.

But to boost her take home pay, Walters told the Navy in 2015 her husband was a U.S. citizen living in Brooklyn, N.Y. She said she needed larger housing and cost of living allowances to support him.

Walters, 37, was sentenced Friday to five months in jail on charges she stole almost $140,000 from the federal government.

Following her release, she will be on house arrest for six months. She also must perform 200 hours of community service and pay full restitution.

In a not-so-veiled threat to the Taliban, President Donald Trump argued on Monday the United States has the capacity to bring a swift end to the 17-year-old war in Afghanistan, but he is seeking a different solution to avoid killing "10 million people."

"I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the Earth," Trump said on Monday at the White House. "It would be gone. It would be over in – literally in 10 days. And I don't want to do that. I don't want to go that route."
