Boxing great and humanitarian Muhammad Ali is about to receive an honor reserved for those of the highest distinction, whose lives have impacted millions and whose deeds have brought great honor and prestige to a city, a state or a nation.

He’s having an airport named after him.

Ali, considered by many as the greatest athlete of the 20th century, was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Now, Louisville is honoring its hometown hero by renaming the city’s airport after Ali.

City officials announced this week, after a petition drive that was started following “The Greatest’s” 2016 death, that Louisville International Airport will be renamed Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

“Muhammad Ali belonged to the world, but he only had one hometown, and fortunately, that is our great city of Louisville, Mayor Greg Fischer said, the Courier-Journal reported

“Muhammad became one of the most well-known people to ever walk the Earth and has left a legacy of humanitarianism and athleticism that has inspired billions of people,” Fischer said.

“It’s important that we, as a city, further champion The Champ’s legacy,” he said. “And the airport renaming is a wonderful next step.”

There are a few steps to go before the name change is official. The city still needs Federal Aviation Administration approval and must finalize an agreement to use his name and likeness.

The city will also spend about $100,000 in marketing and rebranding to align the airport name change to the city’s tourism efforts, the newspaper reported.

Ali, who was born Cassius Clay, would have turned 77 years old Thursday, and city officials hope the renaming and marketing changes are finished by June for the I Am Ali festival, the anniversary of his death in 2016.

'To Catch a Predator' host Chris Hansen arrested for bouncing checks

Chris Hansen, best known as the host of the Dateline NBC segment “To Catch a Predator,” has been arrested after he allegedly bounced checks to a vendor for marketing and promotional items and failed to pay for them.

The Stamford Advocate reported that the 59-year-old resident of Shippan, Connecticut, was arrested Monday. He was released without bond once he signed a written promise to appear in court.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the publication, Hansen asked Peter Psichopaida, the owner of Promotional Sales Limited, for 288 T-shirts, 355 mugs and 650 vinyl decals for him to use at events.

Psichopaidas told police that Hansen agreed to pay $12,998.05, the total cost for the items, before they were delivered to him in September 2017.

According to police, invoices were sent to Hansen for three months. When a person on Hansen’s staff sent a check for the full amount, it bounced. 

Psichopaidas spoke to Hansen about it, and the TV journalist apologized and tried to make a partial payment. By April 2018, Psichopaidas filed a complaint with police as the payment was still not made.

Later that month, Hansen wrote a personal check for $13,200. It bounced three days later and Hansen emailed Psichopaidas.

“Peter ... I truly thought I had this covered,” Hansen wrote, the affidavit said. “I am scrambling to get it done. Please give me till the end of the day. I sold a boat to cover the rest of this and need to pick up the payment this afternoon.”

A warrant for Hansen’s arrest was sent because he never sent a payment.

Hansen has not publicly commented on his arrest. He tweeted Wednesday that he was contemplating a morning run, indicating he was in Los Angeles.

More on Hansen’s arrest can be read at Stamford Advocate.

There’s a new action figure in D.C.: Robert Mueller.

>> Read more trending news 

The special counsel, who is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, now has his own 6-inch action figure, The Hill reported.

A company named FCTRY is producing the $20 mini figure of Mueller, and pre-orders began Tuesday. On its website, the Brooklyn-based company proclaims that Mueller “is our only hope,” adding that “without being melodramatic,” the special counsel seems to be the last figure “standing between us and chaos.”

FCTRY notes that the Mueller figure is the “perfect foil” to President Donald Trump.

“He’s the Batman to Trump’s Joker. The Ness to Trump’s Capone. The Bond to, well, every Bond Villain,” the company wrote on its website.

FCTRY has also created action figures of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (called “Notorious RBG”), former President Barack Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, The Hill reported. The company also produced a figure of Trump in 2017.

The Mueller action figure will ship this spring, The Hill reported.
