From WENN:

Hustle & Flow star Terrence Howard can add lifesaver to his resume after stepping in to help a choking journalist in a restaurant. The movie star was dining with Los Angeles magazine writer Margot Dougherty at the Four Seasons Hotel when she began choking on a piece of sushi. Howard, recalling a Heimlich maneuver scene in Mrs. Doubtfire, calmly took charge of the situation, folding his arms around the reporter and pumping her stomach to remove the blocked fish. Grateful Dougherty says, "He wraps his arms around me from behind, makes a fist at my solar plexus and gives two quick tugs. Bingo, I am breathing." When the gasping journalist asked her lunch guest how he learned about the Heimlich manoeuvre, the actor said, "I saw it on Mrs. Doubtfire. She saved Pierce Brosnan."

Jeffrey Carter Albrecht, a keyboard player for the band Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, was shot to death early Monday while trying to kick in the door of his girlfriend's neighbor, police said.

The neighbor, who was not immediately identified, was asleep in bed when he woke up around 4 a.m. to his wife screaming that someone was breaking into the house, according to a police report. The neighbor yelled through the door for Albrecht to leave and then fired his handgun through the door.

Albrecht was shot in the head and died at the scene, police said.

The neighbor believed a burglar was trying to break in and fired a shot through the door around 4 a.m., Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Gil Cerda said. The case is under investigation and no arrests have been made.

News reports cited police saying Albrecht beat up his girlfriend and then tried to kick down the neighbor's door in a drunken rage. The couple had no history of domestic violence, but the girlfriend had bruises on her face, police said. She did not suffer serious injury.

Albrecht apparently struck his girlfriend in the face several times and hit her in the back once she fell. She later managed to lock him out of the house, according to the reports.
