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.
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.
This is so sad! Jeret Peterson, a 2010 U.S. Olympic silver medalist for freestyle skiing, has just committed suicide at the age of 29 years old.
Peterson (nicknamed “speedy”) shot himself in the head, but first called the police to tell him where he was. His body was discovered late last night. So what brought this on? It’s likely complicated, but just last week, he was arrested in Idaho for speeding and DUI. I’m guessing that this likely played a part in this unfortunate end to his life.
He was well known for his signature move called “the Hurricane,” consisting of three somersaults and five twists. In addition to Vancouver 2010, he also competed in the 2002 and 2006 Olympics.
He was last season’s Cinderella story. Hines Ward, a wide receiver from the Pittsburgh Steelers walked away the champion of Dancing With the Stars season 12. Now, almost as famous for both of his endeavors, Hines may have found himself in a lit bit of hot water early this morning.
While driving in DeKalb County, Georgia close to his home, Hines was pulled over and arrested for a DUI. The footballer was booked at the DeKalb county jail at 3:41am and charged. The former Super Bowl MVP was later released on a $1,000 bond which he paid for his release. So far, no one from the jail or from Hines’ camp has commented on the situation.
It was a bad night for celebs and alcohol last night, with two familiar faces making headlines for their law breaking behaviour, according to RadarOnline. Normally, it’s the young Hollywood starlets that find themselves in trouble. This time round, it’s two older male stars: Andy Dick and Ricardo Chavira.
Last night, a boozed up Andy Dick was arrested (his mug shot, top left) and taken to jail and was booked by 9:48pm. The 45 year old was taken in for his disorderly conduct, taking place in a restaurant Temecula, California. Bail was set at $500, and after he sobered up, he was allowed to go home. Dick is no stranger to alcohol abuse, having been on Celebrity Rehab as well. People close to him are actually really worried about him and the risk he’ll take his own life.
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.
From the bars, to back behind bars, our favorite trainwreck was ordered back to jail today. No more tricks up Lindsay Lohan‘s sleeve, now that she’ll be locked up without bail until October 22nd. At that time, a formal probation hearing will take place. This morning, Judge Elden Fox revoked her probation at the hearing because Lohan had breached her probation and tested positive for drugs. The probation was in place as a result of her DUI conviction from back in 2007.
She has been pretty, mature in realizing she effed up again and must pay the price. When it was discovered she tested positive for drugs, she tweeted, “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked,
I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.” That did in fact happen at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, and she was handcuffed and taken away to jail this morning.
She needs to “suck the poison out of her life,” just as Cady Herron did, the character she played in Mean Girls.
After narrowly avoiding a warrant for her arrest last week due to missing her scheduled court appearance, Lindsay Lohan decides to test fate and the judges patience by arriving 10 minutes late on Monday. Smart move, LILO.
She claimed her passport was stolen while at the Cannes Film Festival, where she was photographed nightly, frequently partying it up. Looking nervous (obviously), she arrived at the courthouse dressed very conservatively in a black pant suit and white shirt waiting for her punishment.
Presiding judge, Marsha Revel imposed new conditions to the embattled star in hopes the once-promising star would turn her life around. Besides wearing a fashion-forward attractive alcohol monitoring device, La Lohan has to submit to random drug and alcohol testing. On top of that, Lindsay has to return to court in July for possible further sanctions depending on how she fares in the new couple of months.
