Quick recap here. Sydney Spies is the Colorado high school student whose senior photo was deemed too sexy for her yearbook. Then, she and her mother Miki went on “The Today Show” to defend her right to express herself “artistically.” The whole kerfuffle helped land her a role in the upcoming SyFy channel movie “American Horror House.” OK, I believe that brings us up to speed on Sydney.
The 18-year-old resurfaced on Monday in a Colorado jail. Sydney and her 45-year-old mother, Denise “Miki” Spies, were arrested on suspicion of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest. Meaning, they threw a big ass house party complete with kegs, booze, those red plastic cups, loud music and “numerous” underage kids. When questioned about the party, Miki, an unemployed “lifestylist” (she says she “STYLES the lives people want but don’t have time for,” whatever the hell that means), “broke into a full sprint.” Sydney attempted to block a police officer from entering the house and nearly kicked him in the groin. Eventually, the pair were detained, booked and later released on $15,000 bail.
This was not Miki’s first time posing for a mug shot. She was arrested earlier this summer for trespassing at a local church. The church’s pastor called authorities when Miki was found “volatile and agitated” on the grounds and screaming obscenities. She claimed the pastor only called police because “she used to be a minister there, and she was forced to quit because she was a lesbian.”
When arrested, she told the officer he “sucked at his job” and that she had more than “6,000 friends on Facebook who would write about the incident.” The officer said her behavior was “consistent with someone under the influence of alcohol.” She was taken to the station and placed in a padded holding cell reserved for noncompliant detainees.
As of Monday, The Durango Herald reported that Miki has only 2,661 friends on Facebook. And I’m sure some more will be unfriending her soon. She needs to work a bit harder at styling her life.
This sounds like the makings of a sensational Hollywood success story. Hard childhood years! An arrest! An unstable mother! Sydney Spies will be infamous before she’s even famous. All starlets need a mug shot.
