Oh oh. It looks like actress and activist Daryl Hannah took her protest a little bit too far this afternoon. Police arrested the actor on the sidewalk outside the White House this afternoon while protesting the highly controversial Keystone XL Pipeline. Prior to her arrest, Hannah was heard saying the following:
“Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom. And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”
So if you have no idea what she’s protesting, let me fill you in. The Keystone XL Pipeline would transport oil from Canada to Texas. So why the protest? Many fear that it will contaminate water sources, devastate ecosystems and pose as a public health risk if completed. Sounds like something worth protesting.
Well well well, not very becoming of America’s Sweetheart and The Next Drag Superstar now is it?
This morning I awoke to read the news that Season 2 RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Tyra “The Other Tyra” Sanchez got busted, arrested and locked up for marijuana possession while driving a car in the lovely state of Georgia. PEACHY!
Mini Ru Pt.2 had a friend with her and they were busted for less than an ounce of weed on them. But here’s the kicker, they were first pulled over for having illegal tinted windows, and the cop could smell raw weed in the car, searched, found it and booked em. HA!
I haven’t done a Top 10 list in a long time so I thought it would be fun to make one to enjoy this weekend. However, I didn’t want to make it about music, or movies or TV. So with all of that content removed what in the world would I list? Celebrity Mugshots that’s what. With the amazing amount of hilarious photos and situations out there, I couldn’t help but find my ten favorite for various reasons and share them with you.
Charlie Sheen has been in the public multiple times this year with his departure from Two & A Half Men but if you take it back to 2009, you’ll remember that Sheen was arrested for domestic violence. He allegedly tried to choke wife at the time Broke Mueller who was renting an Aspen home. I love this mugshot because Charlie still shows his smug attitude in it despite his situation and being arrested. Must be the Tigerblood.
Last night, Nicolas Cage was arrested for domestic abuse in New Orleans, following a very loud argument with his wife, Alice Kim. According to TMZ, a cab driver pulled over and saw Cage (who was very drunk) yelling at his wife and also saw him push her. The cab driver then called the police to intervene.
When the cops arrived, Cage essentially dared them to arrest him. They police kept telling him that he and his wife should just go home, but he kept insisting, “Why don’t you just arrest me?” So they did. The booked him and he’s been charged with domestic abuse and disturbing the peace.
His wife isn’t a complaining witness and doesn’t want him charge, saying that there was no physical contact. At this point, the bond has been set for $11,000.
Last night at around 2:45am, 30 year old Christina Aguilera and her 25 year old boyfriend Matt Rutler were arrested by police after they were suspected of DUI. Rutler was driving the vehicle, while Aguilera was a passenger, and apparently she was very intoxicated. Just how many (genie in a) bottles did she drink?
Rutler was arrested and booked on DUI suspicion with a $30,000 bail, while Aguilera was charged with public intoxication and held on a $250 bail until she sobers up and someone comes and picks her up.
People Magazine is reporting that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s home was subject to an intruder on February 10th but was arrested immediately on the property according to Ellen’s rep.
In an official statement the rep stated that “the property is protected by a 24-hour security team that detected and detained the intruder until she was turned over to the custody of Beverly Hills police officers, who arrested her.”
In 2009, Big Brother 9 winner Adam Jasinski found out that Big Brother really is watching you when he found himself in a little bit of criminal hot water (and I don’t mean the BB hot tub). After being arrested and charged by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) after being discovered with 2,000 Oxycodone pills with intent to distribute.
Allegedly, Adam admitted to using his $500,000 winnings to fund his new drug ring of buying and reselling the pills. He is now facing 20 years in prison and a whopping 1 million dollar fine. But Adam is about to meet his new housemate. Funny thing is, they’ve lived in a house together before. Roommates for life! What a twist.
Former season nine house guest and co-star, Matthew McDonald is about to join Jasinski in the slammer for twenty years. He just pled guilty to conspiracy to distribute Oxycodone in connection to his buddy’s drug ring. I bet they are both wishing for Power Of Veto now.
My, Oh My! Brokeback Mountain and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘s 60 year old Randy Quaid has been arrested here in Vancouver, along with his 47 year old wife, Evi. Bench warrants for the amount of $50,000 were issued earlier this week by a Santa Barbara judge, due to the fact that they skipped an arraignment hearing in a felony burglary case. Wowsas! Quaid is an Oscar-nominated actor, for his role in the 1973 film, The Last Detail.
They are appearing for a hearing at 2 p.m. PT this afternoon (Friday) before the Immigration and Refugee Board. Serious stuff! The VPD were called for assistance on Wednesday to a south Vancouver address as they had been informed there was a man and woman wanted on outstanding warrants in the U.S.
So what are the two accused of? Squatting in the guest house of a Montecito home they once owned in the 1990s. To make matters worse, his wife is also charged with resisting arrest.
