After months of disturbing online and real-life incidences, actress Amanda Bynes was taken into custody Thursday night and ordered to have a psychiatric evaluation. Bynes was arrested earlier in the evening after she threw a bong out the window, prompting a neighbor to call the police. NYC police charged her with reckless endangerment, and took her to Roosevelt Hospital for an evaluation. After the evaluation, she was booked at a Midtown police station. Keep reading »
We all make mistakes. And Taylor Randall, the University of Colorado undergrad who had to be coaxed off a mountain by police yesterday, is no exception. On Monday, the 21-year-old communications major went hiking with a couple of friends in the mountains surrounding Boulder, Colorado. While on their journey, the three decided to take some psychotropic mushrooms.
Mushrooms on a mountain? Sounds dreamy, huh? Eh, not so much.

Dear Jarvis Sutton,
Are you my soulmate? I think you might be, because it’s pretty clear you appreciate Kool-Aid almost as much as I do. I love the Kool-Aid man so much, especially when he comes crashing through a wall screaming his signature catch phrase, “Oh yeah!” in his creepy smoker’s voice.
Or maybe there’s another reason you dialed 911 eighty times to request a home delivery of Kool-Aid, hamburgers and weed. When St. Petersburg, Florida, police arrested you for misusing the 911 system, you were apparently so hungry that you tried eating the foam attached to the metal cage in the back of the police car. I understand that you are still in jail at the moment, unable to make the $150 bond. I would bail you out, but I was planning on using that money for a mammoth Kool-Aid run at Costco, so… Keep reading »
Going to jail is (usually) not funny. But writing a Yelp review about going to jail? That’s hilarious. Randomly, I came across a Yelp listing for NYC’s Central Booking, which is the holding pen for freshly arrested criminals and would-be criminals, which is also lovingly referred to as “the Tombs.” (It’s also heavily featured on every Law & Order franchise ever). People who are arrested are brought to Central Booking to be arraigned, and often minor criminals — violations of open container laws, or turnstyle jumpers — are mixed in with more hardened criminals. It’s not a very luxe place, as you might imagine.
But because New Yorkers have opinions on everything, past Central Booking occupants had a lot to say on the quality of their CB stay. Read on for their illustrious jailhouse reviews. Keep reading »
When Mo Gelber took an impromptu photo of the couple being hauled off by the cops a few weeks ago, he didn’t think much of it. Then he entered the photo in a contest run by Ron Howard, and got pretty far. But! He needed the couple in the picture to sign a release allowing him to use their image in order to move forward in the rounds. He somehow got ahold of the chic, blonde girl, Alexis Creque, but Creque refuses to give up the name of her boyfriend.

Few people understand the importance of getting an order right. But Robert Wheeler does. Wheeler, of Vero Beach, Florida (of course), was so incensed by his pizza delivery guy forgetting to bring him garlic knots that he actually beat up the delivery driver. The driver said Wheeler then told him to “give that to the person working on the phone back at the restaurant.”
Wheeler has the words “Fat Boy” tattooed on his arms and weighs 346 pounds, so you can imagine how important those garlic knots were. Not sure what a garlic knot is? As Will Greenlee of TCPalm.com, the news agency that originally reported the story, explains: “Garlic knots are buttery, garlicky knots of dough — often pizza dough — that many consider positively scrumptious. Violence is not typically associated with garlic knots.” Just so we’re clear. [TCPalm]
