FT. WORTH, Texas — A Texas homeowner’s association will not let a man sell his house because of the color of the roof shingles.
The Tehama Ridge homeowners association refuses to issue Mike Luna a certificate to sell his home because he did not get approval from them first to alter his roof after a strong storm season, association officials told KXAS.
"We need a blessing from the HOA to say there's no violations," Luna told KXAS. "It's taking resources away for my family because we can't sell our home, and there's no empathy whatsoever."
Luna replaced his roof after hail from the 2017 and previous storm seasons damaged portions of it. A roofing contractor who lives in the neighborhood, and has a similar grey color shingle, did the work.
But Luna did not get approval from the HOA to alter his roof and the color of the shingle he used is not allowed under the association bylaws, according to KXAS.
The HOA vice president said that rules are rules and the color of the roof is blue, not grey, according to KXAS.

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — Rapper Offset, of the trio Migos, was arrested Friday on weapon and drug charges in Georgia, WSB reports.
Clayton County police said the rapper, whose real name is Kiari Cephus, and his bodyguard, Senay Gezahgn, were traveling in Jonesboro, just outside Atlanta, when the 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera that Offset was driving was pulled over after an improper lane change.
During a search, officers found three handguns, less than 1 ounce of marijuana and more than $107,000 in cash.
Offset was charged with improper lane change; possession of marijuana, less than 1 ounce; possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Gezahgn was charged with possession of marijuana, less than 1 ounce, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
This is not Offset’s first run-in with the law.
He was arrested in 2016 for driving with a suspended license. In 2015, all three members of Migos were arrested for drug and gun charges during a concert at Georgia Southern University, Billboard reported.
Offset and his wife, rapper Cardi B, just welcomed their first child together last week.

MIAMI, Fla. — We can't stop watching.
The precious video of a chimp reuniting with its foster parents is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
They said Limbani was born with pneumonia and was rejected by his mother.
Tania Sanchez and her husband, Jorge, jumped in to help. The couple took on full around the clock care for Limbani for the first few months of his life.
And you can tell by watching the video, the bond between them is strong.
When he sees them coming, Limbani jumps into Jorge's arms and wraps him in a hug.
(Also, side note -- are these the best hugs you've ever seen? I think we'll go adopt a chimp now.)
SHARE this sweet video with your friends on Facebook.

— Deputies shot an armed man Friday evening in The Villages near Lady Lake, Florida, the Sumter County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies were called shortly before 6:30 p.m after a report of a domestic disturbance, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Michelle Keszey said.
"The victim met deputies at a nearby church where she stated the suspect punched her dog in the face three times," Keszey said. "An argument ensued (in which) the suspect then pushed the victim. The victim fled the scene with her children and contacted law enforcement."
Investigators said they heard gunfire nearby while interviewing the victim.
"While deputies were confronting the suspect, the suspect refused to comply with deputies' commands," Keszey said. "The suspect then raised his firearm at deputies. Two deputies fired shots, striking the suspect."
The man was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center under a trauma alert status.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting.
No other details were given.

Mega Ball: 01
The Mega Millions jackpot reached $433 million ahead of Friday night’s drawing.
It is the sixth-largest prize in the game’s history, lottery officials said in a news release.
It is also the seventh time the jackpot has exceeded $400 million.
While the top prize is still up for grabs, there were some big winners in Tuesday night’s drawing.
Three $1 million tickets were sold in Florida, New Jersey and Oklahoma, according to lotto officials.
2018 seems to be a lucky year for lotto players. Since the last jackpot was won in May, there have been more than 12.4 million winning tickets at all prize levels, according to lotto officials.
A 20-year-old in Florida won a $451 million prize in January, and a food production manager from New Jersey won $533 million in April.
The record for the highest Mega Millions jackpot was set in 2012 when three winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split a $656 million prize.
