The Many Arrests Of Michael Lohan

michael lohan

Egads. Michael Lohan is in the news again and it isn’t for something cute like announcing he’s engaged to Jon Gosselin’s ex. Nope, Michael has been charged with three counts of domestic violence—inflicting corporal injury on a cohabitant, false imprisonment and preventing a report of victimization. “Mr. Lohan was arrested after we received a call around 9 p.m. regarding a domestic dispute,” an officer explained. “He was detained after he was spotted walking on the street near our station. He showed no signs of intoxication that I’m aware of and has been cooperative.” His bail has been set at $200,000. [People]

This is hardly Michael’s first run-in with the law. After the jump, a timeline. Keep reading »

Hollywood Cops Hit A Woman’s Car. And Then Pin The Blame On Her.

The Sun-Sentinal has eight minutes of raw footage that shows four Hollywood cops conspiring to frame a drunk woman after they rear-ended her car. Watch it here. In February, 11-year police veteran Joel Francisco crashed his police cruiser into Alexandra Torrensvilas’ car while she was stopped at a traffic light. Some other crooked cops showed up and they all decided to fabricate a report so the accident looked like it was the Alexandra’s fault. Keep reading »

Man Arrested (Twice!) For Having Sex With His Cow And Other Bizarre Crimes Committed This Week

There is an old adage along the lines of “real life is stranger than fiction.” Apparently a man from my sleepy town in Connecticut was arrested for having sex with his cow…again. Oh yes, the local dude was arrested once before a few years ago for doing the nasty with his cow. I am not sure what was the most disturbing element of this story: the fact that he was caught having sex with his cow, that he was caught again, or that he was single at the time of the first arrest and he was (and, to my knowledge, still is) engaged at the time of his second arrest. Inspired by this bizarre story I went to searching for other random crimes committed in the past few days. Read about the weirdest and wackiest ways the law has been broken, after the jump.

Victoria Beckham Can Get You Arrested

Lebanese national Raffi Nernekian was arrested in Dubai for wearing a Marc Jacobs-designed T-shirt promoting skin cancer awareness with a nude photo of Victoria Beckham. Although all of Posh’s important lady parts were hidden by the “Protect the Skin You’re In” slogan, Nernekian reportedly got into an argument with a local over the shirt. After the argument he left to change his shirt, only to find the police waiting when he returned. He was jailed for a month for “offending public decency.” Although Dubai is a tourist destination even for folks like Paris Hilton (who has recently been searching for a new BFF there), visitors are advised to review the country’s moral and social code before partying it up — or getting dressed.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Arrested After Alleged Drunken Airport Bar Brawl

No, Jonathan. No, no, no, no, no. You’re way too talented an actor, and far too attractive, to get taken down for crap like this. “Tudors” actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers (you know, the stone cold sex bomb who was in “Match Point”) was arrested by French police on Saturday afternoon after allegedly punching out a waiter in an airport restaurant. Agence France Press reports that the 31-year-old actor appeared too drunk to be served by a bartender at Le Quotidien restaurant in Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, which prompted Meyers to shout at the manager. (Not a good tactic, sweetie.) When a member of the waitstaff tried to intervene, Meyers punched him in the face. After a three hour stint in the drunk tank courtesy of French police, Meyers was released.

Meyers checked into rehab in 2007, the same year he was arrested for public drunkenness in Dublin. Perhaps it’s time for another trip? You’re behaving positively Lohan-esque, dude. [People] Keep reading »

Woman Cuffs Hubby To Bed For Talk, Not Sex

Yesterday, 37-year old Helen Sun handcuffed herself to her estranged husband to keep him from leaving. Sun told investigators that she just wanted to talk—don’t we all?—and the only way she could get hubby to listen was by tying him up…. Keep reading »

Chicago Sheriff Sues Craigslist

The Sheriff of Cook County is suing Craiglist. Chicagoan Tom Dart claims the site cost his department $100,000 in prostitution prosecution in 2008. Monitoring the erotic services section of the site alone has yielded big busts, including a ring of four men who were pimping girls as young as fifteen! In fact, in June 2008 they arrested 76 people involved in illegal sexual activities. Dart says he could chase working girls on the website all day, but instead, he’s going after the webmasters, or as he puts it, “I’m trying to go up the ladder.” Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Was Heather Locklear FRAMED?

  • I can’t be bothered to type up all the deets, but it looks like Heather Locklear, who was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, was totally set up by some gossip writer or something. Just click the link to read. [DListed]
  • Is Salma Hayek back with her French baby daddy? [DListed]
  • I’m sorry, but WHY would they give Audrina Partridge her own show? She doesn’t say or do anything. [Perez Hilton]

    Star Couplings: Mark Wahlberg Adds To His Funky Bunch

  • Mark Wahlberg and his fiancee Rhea Durham had their third child, a boy, this weekend. The two got engaged fairly recently, and Mark has gotten a lot of flack for not marrying the mother of his kids. I kind of think he needs to s–t or get off the pot. [Us Weekly]

    Christian Bale Accused Of Assault: Batman Don’t Make Us Quit You

    So yeah. Batman. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. In jail in London after being accused of assaulting his mother and sister. Bale turned himself in after the London screening of The Dark Knight — a deal he worked out in advance because officials said, “it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth.” Uh, okay. Anyway, this is depressing. We love Christian Bale. His deceased dad was married to Gloria Steinem for heaven’s sake, how could he actually assault two women?! Bale hasn’t responded to the assault charges yet, but we’ll keep you posted. [Sun U.K.]

    Update: Is it wrong that my heart did a little happy dance upon reading that Bale may have been arrested for verbal assault not physical? I mean, that’s less depressing right? [TMZ]
    Update Again: Sue me, I am obsessed. So it seems like this whole thing maybe was blown out of proportion. Bale’s sister and mom say they didn’t call the police to the scene of the “incident”. His sister called it a “family situation” that is extremely “sensitive”. FYI, I totally just learned him mom was a circus clown. Clowns are scary. The Joker looked like a clown. I wonder if there is a connection. Whatever, I am just so glad it looks like Batman isn’t a woman beater. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
