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.
The circus that is Lindsay Lohan‘s life continues with her latest court appearance and sentence of mandatory rehab for 90 days. On Monday, Lohan had pleaded no contest to the charge of giving false information to a police officer and reckless driving, all going back to car crash last summer.
I’m happy that she got mandatory rehab as opposed to a matter of days or hours like the previous times. Hopefully she’ll be able to deal with whatever issues she has to in order to put all of this nonsense behind her once and for all. Perhaps she can take a page out of her character, Cady Heron in Mean Girls with this next stage in her life. “When you get bit by a snake, you have to suck out all the poison, that’s what I had to do, suck all the poison out of my life.”
Now that she has gone in for booking, her sixth mugshot has just been released and LiLo does not look very happy in it. Check it out below. In all seriousness, I do hope she gets better and we can close the book on all of this.
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.
Just when you thought he couldn’t do any more damage to the Hantz family reputation and to himself, Willie Hantz has just been arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Now, TMZ has broken the news that Hantz (who is the brother of Survivor villain, Russell Hantz) has been arrested in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana at 2:07 AM for OWI – operating a vehicle while intoxicated.. He apparently refused to do a breathalyzer and a blood test to determine if he was over the legal limit. Wow, I’m sure Britney and the rest of the team would be so impressed. This guy is on a downward spiral and needs help. If case you’ve missed his faced since his expulsion from the Big Brother house, you can check out his mug shot below.
During my years working at an online kids magazine, keeping up to date with all the teen celebrities was of the utmost importance. This was years ago, so the big stars at the time were the Jonas Bros, Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire), Jesse McCartney, Raven Symone and so on. Being inundated on a daily basis by youthful entertainment, I grew to genuinely like a few of them. My personal favorite was Amanda Bynes. She reminded me of a young Jennifer Aniston in her movies “What A Girls Wants” and “She’s the Man“. Bynes hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2010′s “Easy A“, but finds herself back in the public eye thanks to a recent run-in with police.
The 26-year-old actress was arrested early Friday morning for allegedly being under the influence. The former “What I Like About You” star was stopped by police when she attempted to pass a patrol car. As luck would have it she hit the cop car while making a right turn. No one was hurt, but paint damage was sustained on both vehicles. She was held on $5,000 bail and released later that day. Check out her solemn-looking mugshot below.
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.
Not that Jacob Lusk had a great shot of winning this year’s American Idol, but this pretty much puts the nail in the coffin on that dream. TMZ has uncovered a mug shot of the Idol contestant. Apparently, Lusk has had problems with the popo.
Back in 2009, Jacob was caught for riding a Metro train without a ticket. Tsk, tsk. When he failed to appear for his court day, a warrant was issued. It wasn’t until November 2010, when he got pulled over for a traffic violation that it finally caught up to him. The arresting police officer saw the outstanding warrant and took him to the big house. Ironically enough, this was the day after he received his Golden Ticket to Hollywood. LMFA0.
R&B singer, Mario Barrett, who goes simply by Mario was arrested for assaulting his mother. His mother, Shawntia Hardaway claims her son pushed her up against the wall. When the police arrived, they found evidence of a damaged china cabinet, a broken mirror, a hole in a closet door and other damage throughout the apartment. Mario has been charged with second degree assault, and has since be released on $50,000 bail.
Mario’s legal team has suggested that this incident is simply “an unfortunate incident” between the family. Talk about an understatement. In 2007, mother and son appeared in a MTV special, “I Won’t Love You to Death: The Story of Mario and His Mom“. It documented Mario’s mom’s drug problems and showed a televised intervention where Mario confronted her about her issues.
