I wonder if Reese Witherspoon tried to channel her inner Elle Woods during her run-in with the law this weekend in Atlanta. The Legally Blonde star was arrested for disorderly conduct according to Variety.com.
Witherspoon was with her power agent husband Jim Toth when police pulled them over under the suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Reportedly, he was swerving into the wrong lane. Guess he couldn’t
drive Walk The Line. Sorry. I just had to reference Reese’s Oscar winning role in the Johnny Cash biopic. The website says he blew a .139 on a Breathalyzer test.
Once Toth was placed under arrest, the 37-year-old actress exited the vehicle and was instructed to get back in the car. According to the report, she “stated that she was a ‘US citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground.’” She was then handcuffed after her disobedience.
The arresting officer’s report goes on to reveal that, “Mrs. Witherspoon asked, “Do you know my name?” I answered, “No, I don’t need to know your name.” I then added, “right now.” Mrs. Witherspoon stated, “You’re about to find out who I am.” It goes on to disclose, “Mrs. Witherspoon also stated, ‘You are going to be on national news.’ I advised Mrs. Witherspoon that was fine.” Someone was playing the celeb card, weren’t they? Oh Reese. Check out her mugshot below.
Hope 2013 is treating you better than it is Frank Ocean? The R&B crooner was arrested while on vacation in California’s Eastern Sierra Nevada near Mammoth Lake on New Year’s Eve roughly at 4:30 pm. Despite some salacious rumors (yazmar.com) that he was apprehended due to engaging in some lewd acts, the truth is far less scandalous.
Contrary to rumors that he was swerving on the highway due to being “serviced,” the 25-year-old singer was stopped for speeding. He was driving more than 90 mph in a 65 mph zone in his black BMW. In his defense, whenever I drive Brian’s BMW instead of my Jeep Rubicon, it’s sometimes hard to tell how fast you’re going. It’s so smooth.
In addition to speeding, Ocean whose legal name is Christopher Edwin Breaux allegedly had a small bag of marijuana on him. Smoking a doobie on NYE. Nothing wrong with that, right? Someone has a little more street cred now ;) If that wasn’t enough, Frank was also cited for driving with a suspended driver’s license and having tinted windows. When it rains, it pours. LOL. Reportedly, the following pic was taken by Ocean while riding in the backseat of the cop car.
When you really look into, you’d be surprised how many celebrities have gay siblings. The four above are only scratching the surface. Speaking of which, one of them are involved in a mini-scandal thanks to their LGBT relative. Here’s what the sibling wrote on their Facebook after a run-in with the law.
“Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested.”
According to TMZ, said sibling was arrested the other night in Los Angeles. Allegedly, he was arrested for attempting to purchase illegal narcotics from an undercover LAPD officer posing as a drug dealer. Find out who the culprit is below.
As TMZ explains, “Law enforcement tells us prior to the fight words were exchanged between Lindsay and the woman as they sat in separate booths near each other. Lindsay said something to the effect of, ‘Give me my space.’ Some time passed and then, for some reason, Lindsay allegedly punched the girl in the left side of her face.
I feel like being out that late midweek is only asking for trouble – which is a chance Lindsay cannot afford to be taking anymore. She’s since been released and the incident is being investigated. Remember Lindsay as Cady in Mean Girls saying, “I knew how this would be handled in the animal world, but in ‘girl world’ all the fighting had to be sneaky.” Clearly she isn’t following her character’s advice. Watch the video of her arrest below.
When you think of Randy Travis, I’m sure you think of that country singer who sang the gospel-like track “Forever and Ever, Amen,” or at least I do anyway. So, imagine my shock this morning when I woke up and read that Travis had been arrested for a DWI. That’s the last thing I ever thought the country star would be caught doing.
This isn’t Randy’s first run-in with the law. Back in February, Travis was arrested outside his Baptist church in Dallas, TX when he was found by police drinking an open bottle of wine inside his car. This time around, Randy grabbed the police’s attention when he crashed his Pontiac Trans Am in a one-vehicle accident. According to reports, the DWI wasn’t the only interesting part of this solo crash. A 911 caller provided information that Randy Travis was naked and laying in the street.
When highway patrol arrived, they said “Travis had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication.” Even further, Randy “made threats to shoot and kill the troopers working the case,” which turned into a retaliation felony charge. Travis also refused a Breathalyzer test and was forced by the court to give a blood sample. Bond was set at $1,500 for the DWI charge, and $20,000 for the retaliation charge. Randy Travis has since been released from custody. Talk about a wild night. This is the kind of stuff country songs are made of. Check out Randy’s awful mugshot from last night below.
Oh, guuuuuuuuuuuuuuurl. I know how this feels (minus the arrest part). When you mix in liquor and a night out on the town with a relatively new relationship, it’s bound to be a deadly combination. Especially with the gays, since we love to blow things out of proportion at a gay club. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of embarrassing moments.
During a night out in Helsinki, Finland the American Idol runner up and his Finnish reality star boyfriend Sauli Koskinen got into a fight. The two were partying it up at the gay-friendly club “Don’t Tell Mama“, or as the locals call it DTM, when a dispute amongst the two occurred. It must’ve been a very noticeable dispute since the two were kicked out the club. Instead of cooling down, Adam Lambert and his boyfriend continued their squabble outside in front of DTM. Silly boys. Take it home.
Morgan Wilson wasn’t really anyone’s favorite on Top Chef: Just Desserts. Some may even call him one of the shows villains. Whether it was trouble making ways or overconfidence and arrogance in his abilities, Wilson just seemed to rub people the wrong way and in the end, came in second place at the show’s finale. Ah, but a twist.
Wilson has reportedly been indicted on three charges involving child pornography; possession with intent to promote child pornography which is a second-degree felony. Now, if you watched the show, despite Wilson being a grade A prick, he did speak very fondly of his young son. So, to imagine him partaking in this kind of behavior is a little bit shocking to say the least.
According to Dallas’ Pegasus News, the Bravo star was arrested shortly after the filming of the show after police received three photos transferred by Wilson, from his computer containing child pornography. In December of last year, he was booked for sending undercover investigators videos and photos of children and toddlers engaging in sexual acts. In September of this year, he admitted that he had viewed the images he sent and the images went into further investigation with the FBI.
I have to say, I’m just as sick of this Lindsay Lohan bad girl story as you are. That being said, there was something satisfying about watching the video clip of her getting handcuffed yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, I want her to get better and move on with her life, but when she continues to act like she’s above the law, she should be handcuffed like any other citizen.
This all came about because Lohan has missed too many community service appointments required by her probation, and after her hearing on Wednesday, she was handcuffed and taken into custody. You know what other appointments she’s been missing? Her dentist appointments, but that’s another story. Anyway, the judge had ruled that she had violated her probation and as a result, she will return to court on November 2 where she could be sentenced to a year and a half in prison. With prison overcrowding, it’s doubtful that will actually happen.
After she was handcuffed and taken away, she posted the $100,000 bail and was released. Get your life together already, Lindsay!
