When they got there, deputies said the woman took out several small liquor bottles from her purse and gave two of them to the victim to drink.

Deputies said the victim blacked out and woke up fully clothed with his watches, computer, cash and credits cards missing.

The woman is suspected in a similar incident on Jan. 30.

In that incident, the victim told deputies he met her in downtown Orlando and the two agreed to go back to his home where they had a few drinks.

The victim told deputies he passed out and the woman stole his $12,000 Rolex.

That victim, who did not want to be identified, told WFTV that he remembers very little of what happened the night he was robbed.

Deputies believe the woman spiked his drinks.

The woman was described as white with blonde hair, between 25 and 30 years old and has a teddy bear tattoo on her chest, a tattoo on her stomach that says “Greens for money,” a scorpion tattoo on her leg and a birthmark behind her right ear.

Both victims told deputies she spoke with a Southern accent.

In another incident on Jan. 27, deputies said a woman left an Orlando nightclub with Tennessee Titans player Quinton Spain and they went back to his hotel room. She is believed to have drugged and robbed him of a significant amount of jewelry.

He told deputies she was aggressively pursuing him, so he invited her back.

“He poured the first drink, then she poured the second drink and there must have been something in that second drink,” said Jane Watrel of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Spain was in Orlando for the Pro Bowl. 

He told deputies he had had $113,000 worth of jewelry stolen. 

Spain described the woman as light-skinned, with a Caribbean accent and between 28 and 35 years old.

Deputies have released surveillance pictures of both women.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information on the women’s whereabouts or information on the crime.

A 108-year-old World War II veteran and Saints fan is heading to Super Bowl LII, thanks to New Orleans defensive end Cam Jordan.

>> Read more trending news

Jordan gave a pair of Super Bowl LII tickets to Lawrence Brooks, who was born Sept. 12, 1909, and served in the 91st Engineer Battalion during WWII, WGNO reported. 

The Saints posted a video of Wednesday’s Facetime call between Brooks and Jordan on its Facebook page.

“We wish we would be in the Super Bowl, but honestly I think we have a great shot at it next year,” Jordan said. “I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did in military service back in your younger days.” 

“I appreciate everything you do, too,” Brooks said. “And I want you to keep it up, keep it up, you hear?”

Brooks’ battalion, with a predominantly black roster, was stationed in New Guinea during WWII, WGNO reported. Brooks attained the rank of Private 1st Class during the war. 

He worked as a forklift operator until he retired in 1974, WGNO reported. He was 95 years old when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, and he and his wife had to be rescued from the roof of their house by helicopter, WGNO reported.

On Feb. 4, Brooks will head to Minneapolis to watch the New England Patriots defend their Super Bowl title against the Philadelphia Eagles.  Brooks is more than twice as old as the Super Bowl and was 11 years old when the NFL was formed in 1920.

The Museum of the American Revolution announced it is renaming its first-floor Patriots Gallery, calling it the “Eagles Gallery” in honor of the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles, WPVI reported.

Anyone wearing Eagles gear who buys a ticket at the museum will get $2 off admission through Feb. 4.

The gallery features weapons, artifacts and paintings from the Revolutionary War era, WPVI reported. One of the paintings is a rare eyewitness work of the Continental Army.

Museum President Michael Quinn told The Associated Press that the Super Bowl is a perfect analogy for Philadelphia because like the colonists, the Eagles are the underdogs in this campaign.

The museum hung an "Eagles Gallery" sign Thursday above the entrance, WPVI reported. It will remain there until Super Bowl Sunday.

Food feud erupts between Philadelphia, Boston as Super Bowl approaches

There’s a food fight brewing between Philadelphia and Boston as both cities gear up for Super Bowl LII.

>> Read more trending news

As the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots begin preparations for their Feb. 4 clash for the championship of the NFL in Minneapolis, restaurants in Philadelphia and Boston are added fuel to the rivalry. Dottie’s Donuts, a vegan shop in southwest Philadelphia, has stopped selling Boston cream doughnuts, CBS Philadelphia reported.

“We are not doing Boston cream right now, until after the Super Bowl,” employee Quinton Johnson said. Johnson told CBS Philadelphia that the doughnut shop began getting prank calls from Patriots fans after the Eagles clinched a Super Bowl berth Sunday.

Not to be outdone, Boston’s Esplanade Park said it was banning Philly cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and Philadelphia cream cheese, CBS Philadelphia reported. The Boston establishment is even banning Crisco, a dig at the Philadelphia police department’s tactic of greasing metal poles with the shortening to prevent fans from climbing them after the Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL Championship game.

Dottie’s added “grease-pole pastries” to its menu.

“Just a long pole with vanilla grease and a little Matcha on top,” Johnson told CBS Philadelphia.

And as a substitute for the Boston cream doughnuts, Dottie’s is offering Eagles’ green-themed pistachio Matcha doughnuts.

Tom Brady will become oldest non-kicker to play in the Super Bowl

We all know by now that you can’t count out Tom Brady from being able to accomplish anything. That includes becoming the oldest player to do anything, especially if he continues to play as well as he has after turning 40 this season. Now, thanks to his “advanced” age, he’s going to break a Super Bowl record previously held by San Francisco 49ers great Jerry Rice.

>> Read more trending news

When Rice played in Super Bowl XXXVII for the Oakland Raiders he was 40 years, 105 days old. At Super Bowl LII, Brady will be 40 years, 185 days old. This is a record for non-kickers, Just last year, Atlanta’s Matt Bryant was 41, while Matt Stover was 42 when he kicked for the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.

If Brady keeps playing at a high level for the next few years, he could surely take over the record and leave that pesky “non-kicker” tag off the next time he comes back.

Vince McMahon announces new XFL football league

Vince McMahon is bringing back the XFL.

In a highly touted announcement made at 3 p.m., the WWE founder and chairman announced the new professional football league, the first incarnation of which was announced in 1999, is returning.

>> Read more trending news  

Coming in 2020, McMahon says the league will be “football reimagined” and have a championship game. McMahon said the game will be faster-paced than NFL football.

Teams will be in eight cities, which will be announced in the coming months, according to ESPN. Team names will follow the cities announcement. 

Before the announcement, CBS Sports reported that McMahon would be announcing the 2020 return of the defunct league.

The original XFL, which McMahon co-owned with NBC, only lasted one season in 2001.

ESPN reported that Alpha Entertainment, a company formed by McMahon, filed trademarks for the name XFL. The company was founded to make investments that include pro football.

“I wanted to do this since the day we stopped the other one,” McMahon told ESPN. “A chance to do it with no partners, strictly funded by me, which would allow me to look in the mirror and say, ‘You were the one who screwed this up,’ or ‘You made this thing a success.’”

McMahon will be the only owner of all the league’s teams, and said players will not be able to make political statements while on the field.

“People don’t want social and political issues coming into play when they are trying to be entertained,” McMahon said. “We want someone who wants to take a knee to do their version of that on their personal time.

“I can say, ‘Here are the rules, and as long as you are playing football in the stadium for us, you follow these rules.’”

During the news conference Thursday, McMahon said “it would be appropriate” for players to stand during the national anthem. He also said players with criminal records would not be able to play in the league. Salaries have not been determined, but winning players will make more money. Rosters will have 40 players. The regular season will have 10 games and a postseason with to semifinals.

McMahon said the XFL will listen to sports experts and fans when it comes to nicknames on the back of jerseys and other gimmicks. The original league gained attention from nicknames like “He Hate Me” on Rod Smart’s Las Vegas Outlaws jersey.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN the league would not comment on the XFL.

“We aren’t going to have much of what the (original) XFL had, including the cheerleaders, who aren’t really part of the game anymore,” McMahon said. “The audience wants entertainment with football, and that’s what we are going to give them.”
