More support for auction in Rhode Island

MTV and Comedy Central have joined singer Taylor Swift in supporting an auction to raise money for charity and celebrate a Rhode Island town’s centennial. The organizers of West Warwick’s Centennial Ball announced Friday that Comedy Central has donated four tickets to a taping of ‘‘The Colbert Report,’’ which stars comedian Stephen Colbert, and that MTV has promised concert tickets and memorabilia. In addition, the Providence Performing Arts Center has donated tickets to an upcoming musical. The new donations come after organizers announced that Swift, who owns a beach home in Westerly, had donated an autographed acoustic guitar. The donated items will be auctioned at West Warwick’s Centennial Ball next month. Proceeds will benefit a local scholarship and efforts to build a memorial to the victims of the 2003 Station nightclub fire.

Odom arrested

Basketball player Lamar Odom was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence Friday after a California Highway Patrol officer saw his Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically on a San Fernando Valley Freeway. The husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian was stopped shortly before 4 a.m. and arrested after a field sobriety test. The CHP said Odom’s car was observed traveling in a ‘‘serpentine manner’’ before he pulled off the freeway. “Mr. Odom showed objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests,’’ the CHP said in a report. Authorities said he later declined to take a chemical test. Odom, 33, was booked for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and was released Friday morning after posting bail.

Fans are upset after Dave Chappelle stopped his headlining set at a Connecticut comedy show because of hecklers and left the stage after telling only a few jokes. Chappelle was the closing act at the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival at the Comcast Theatre in Hartford last week. Fans say he stopped his routine after only a few minutes. He sat on a stool making comments about the situation and responding to hecklers until the end of what apparently was his contractually mandated time on stage. The Oddball Fest posted a tweet asking Hartford to ‘‘pipe down and let Dave Chappelle do his thing!’’ A representative for Chappelle couldn’t be reached Friday. The Oddball Fest is scheduled to make a stop at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sept. 8.
