    Alternate versions of Guy Fieri's hair are a hot topic on the Internet this week. Buzzfeed posted an image of what Fieri might look like with a different hairdo and it attacked trending-topic lists far and wide.

    According to the Lawrence Journal-World, Boston Red Sox prospect Cody Kukuk was arrested in Long Beach Calif., on Wednesday on an outstanding warrant in connection with a home-invasion robbery that took place in Lawrence, Kansas on Nov. 8.

    Kukuk, 21, is a native of Lawrence. Another man, 20-year-old Gabriel Patterson, was also arrested in Long Beach in connection with the same robbery. Both men have been charged and will remain jailed without bail.

    Two other men, 21-year-old Zachary John Pence and 19-year-old Driskell Alan Johnson, were charged in the same robbery last week in Kansas.

    Here are a few more details from the Lawrence Journal-World report:

    Police alleged that the men entered the Arkansas Street apartment with handguns, battered residents and took their belongings, McKinley said last week.

    Court documents allege that cash, two cellphones, an Xbox 360 and the contents of a safe were taken during the incident.
