Paris Hilton kissed a girl and she liked it, but her boyfriend apparently didn’t. In a story made in sleazy tabloid hell, the socialite’s new beau River Viiperi was arrested early this morning for allegedly punching the boyfriend of a girl who was making out with Paris at a club. Yeah, we’ll repeat all that. According to TMZ, a man filed a report with the Las Vegas Police Department accusing River of punching him in the face after his girlfriend and Paris starting kissing on the dance floor at the XS Nightclub at the Encore Hotel.
The scuffle resulted in the unnamed man needing medical attention, and police were called to the hotel around 2:30 AM. They arrested River and cited him with misdemeanor criminal battery. We’re guessing the Las Vegas police have bigger fish to fry, because River was cited on the scene without even getting booked. Police say that the incident is still under investigation, but Paris has reportedly been cleared of any wrong doing. No word on how the whole girl-on-girl thing got started. Maybe it was Paris’ misguided way of apologizing for those homophobic slurs she made in the back of a New York taxi cab last month? Errr, yeah, we’re pretty sure that’s not how it works…

Wise folks always say: love is strange. Wonderful, beautiful and incredible, obviously. But also strange, messy, and complicated. Sometimes it makes you do things that seem weird to the outside world. This should not come as news. So bearing in mind that law of the universe, we’re pass along the news that Rihanna is reportedly offering to defend Chris Brown in a court hearing to decide whether or not he has violated his parole. We reported yesterday that Brown got him some hot water by failing a drug test, but according to RadarOnline Riri wants to ask Judge Patricia Schnegg to not consider it a violation of his probation.
“Rihanna has spoken to Chris since his progress reporting hearing on Monday afternoon and offered her continued support,” the source says. Rihanna has already taken to twitter to send good vibes his way, but the insider says that she’s willing to go much further. “Rihanna told Chris she would go to court on November 1 for his court appearance and tell Judge Patricia Schnegg that she shouldn’t set a hearing to decide if he violated terms of his probation because he has accepted responsibility for his actions and has apologized to RiRi on multiple occasions.” If recent rumors are to be believed, Rihanna has more than forgiven him, and may even be working towards rekindling their romance. Or not. But regardless of their relationship status, some folks feel that they’re far too close for comfort.
She’s been a bad, bad girl. Fifteen years after releasing the track that made her famous, it looks like Fiona Apple is finally a “Criminal” for real! The 35-year-old singer was arrested at a border checkpoint in Texas yesterday after authorities found hash in her tour bus. But we didn’t need to tell you that. All you have to do is read a recent interview with her to know this was bound to happen sooner or later.
According to TMZ, the arrest happened in the town of Sierra Blanca, which is also the town where Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Armie Hammer have also all been busted for possession. Damn, either they’ve got a really awesome drug force, or they just really hate entertainment people. We’re awaiting more information, but as of now Fiona is currently still being held at the Hudspeth County Jail. We hope it doesn’t derail her comeback tour promoting The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, her first new record since 2005. That would bum us out even more than learning that we’re not the first people to make a “Criminal” joke.

Woah, all this talk about Amanda Bynes and how she’s the next Lindsay Lohan and Lindsay Lohan rears her head again! And it looks like she’s back to her old tricks. LiLo was arrested this morning in New York City after supposedly tapping a pedestrian with her Porsche Cayenne around two in the morning. This happened around the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC where she was apparently about to park her car. She ended up hitting this poor dude’s knee instead, or so he claims. Also, and here’s just an FYI. The owner of the Dream Hotel is Vikram Chatwal, who Li.Lo had a fling with earlier this year. Or may still be having a fling with, for all we know.
Back to the story though. Here’s the problem: While she should’ve checked to see if the guy was okay, since she hit his knee (even though it was at a really slow speed), she and some friends waltzed into the hotel. Only one of her posse checked to see if the car was harmed, not the alleged victim.
UPDATE: TMZ reports that surveillance footage shows that it’s unclear whether the car ever made contact with the man, who then ran after Lindsay. When she exited the car, she appeared completely unaware that she hit a person.
The guy then called 911 and was taken to the hospital, where he checked out okay. According to the surveillance video, Lindsay left the club minutes after entering it, and then returned again. It was after she left the second time that cops arrived to take her into custody. TMZ‘s sources say she was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, but was subsequently released with something called a desk appearance ticket. That translates into her not having to post bail before being let go. No booze was involved, reports say.
Could this be more trouble for Lindsay who is currently on probation? We’ll just have to wait and see. Looks like she shouldn’t have tweeted Bynes about going to jail, huh. Let’s not tempt the fates, Lindz.

And there’s the mug shot! Pro snowboarder and two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested yesterday after he supposedly got super drunk at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville. TMZ reports that he not only trashed his room because he got so wasted, but he also started pulling fire alarms when hotel staff tried to get him to behave himself. It’s being said that White also ended up injuring himself pretty badly because he tried to run away from them, and when someone tried to stop him, he kicked the person and tried to get away. Not a good idea when you’re that uncoordinated. The unidentified male he kicked chased after him but ended up running right into White who then fell and hit his head on a fence, apparently. You can see the shiner in his mug shot! He has been booked for public intoxication and vandalism but luckily, not for assault as the person he attacked is not pressing charges. All of this went down around 2 AM and he was only taken to jail after he was treated for his injury. Police say he was pretty out of it when they found him and was smelling of booze. And he’s probably still hungover. We’re not certain if he’s still cooling his heel in jail, though as more news is still emerging.

Chris Brown has been doing his best to move on following his 2009 assault conviction for abusing his then-girlfriend Rihanna. But understandably, many members of the public aren’t so quick to forget, not to mention forgive. That would explain why copies of his latest album Fortune were found in a London HMV mega-store sporting an advisory sticker reading: “Warning. Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women.”
Thought to be the work of anti-domestic violence campaigners, photos of the stickers have been making the rounds of social media even after the staff at HMV had the labels removed. “Someone went into one of our stores and put the stickers on,” HMV public relations manager Gennaro Castaldo told The Huffington Post. “We spotted and removed them quickly but before we could do so the person circulated a photo to media.” The record retail expressed has apologized publicly for the incident this morning. “It was very much an isolated incident and nothing to do with HMV or representing our views. It would appear a member of the public popped into one of our stores… and stickered a handful of CDs.”
Heads up, Hallmark, it’s Crazy Celebrity Arrest week starring Taylor Swift! But don’t worry Team T-Swizzle, it’s not in the way you think. In addition to her full schedule of buying houses and dropping singles, Taylor somehow managed to cause Crocs footwear founder George Boedecker to get a DUI…without even being in the same state! At least that’s what the shoe baron drunkenly claimed. In a tale as ridiculous as Crocs themselves, the 51 year old Boedecker was discovered passed out at the wheel of his Porsche in Boulder, Colorado. According to TheSmokingGun.com, police arrived to find him being treated by EMTs, who diagnosed Boedecker as being “drunk as crap.” It’s unclear exactly why he drank so much, but then again if we invented the ugliest shoe known to human-kind we’d probably drink to forget, too.
When questioned by police, he insisted that he was merely napping and that his “girlfriend” was driving the car. Who was this girlfriend, you ask? “A really f—ing famous [singer],” he told authorities, before coyly asking if they had ever heard of Taylor Swift. When cops asked where this non-present girlfriend was at the moment, Boedecker claimed that she had gone back to Nashville after an argument and that she was “batsh– crazy.” It seems like someone’s definitely batsh– crazy in this story, and it doesn’t seem like it’s Taylor. But the best part of the whole incident? George was reportedly wearing flip-flops, which just proves that no one likes Crocs.
Incredibly, this may not be the most insane celebrity arrest of the day. MMA fighter Jason “Mayhem” Miller was found sleeping naked on a couch in an Orange County-area church this morning. The pastor saw signs of a break-in at the Mission Viejo’s Mission Hills Church and phoned the authorizes, who discovered the first floor in complete disarray with walls spray painted and books strewn across the ground. It was mayhem, in every sense of the word.
When last we heard from country star Randy Travis, it was just after the Super Bowl when he was parked in front of a Baptist church in Sanger, Texas, accompanied by an open bottle of wine, and rambling to police that he had no idea how he got there. He said he’d been celebrating the big game and got into a fight with his girlfriend. So, yeah, he was arrested At the time, we remarked how much the whole sad incident reminded us of a country song. The crooner’s latest antics, however, are sounding a lot more like an episode of Reno 911 than anything else.
According to TMZ, Travis was arrested in Texas last night at 11:59 p.m. after crashing his car and verbally threatening a cop. And according to TMZ, he was “buck naked” at the time of his arrest. Um, what?
Police charged him with DWI and “retaliation and obstruction.” They were reportedly forced to take a blood draw because he refused to take a Breathalyzer test. What do you think he was celebrating this time — Aly Raisman‘s gold medal in floor exercize?

So, yesterday we posted the news on how Anchorman actor Fred Willard was arrested for “lewd conduct” after he was allegedly caught with his pants down at an adult movie hall. Undercover vice cops supposedly found the actor, how do we put this delicately, servicing himself? Unzipped pants, his little Willard out in full view. He was arrested but released quickly, but not quickly enough for the story to not surface. This whole thing sounds really WTF to us, and it’s getting a little weirder thanks to his weak defensive statements. Willard told TMZ that the whole “lewd conduct” arrest was just a ” big misunderstanding” and also said that “It didn’t happen.” So the cops booked him for nothing? His response was it was “a difference of opinion” and this is the really strange one — that him going to the adult theatre was prompted by “a strange situation.” Strange situation? We’re rolling our eyes.
His lawyer, Paul Takakjian, is being a lot more straightforward regarding his client’s defence. He released a statement that said, “With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief is that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law. We will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter.” Perhaps he should re-think the use of the word “vigorously” considering the nature of the offense Willard was arrested for. Whatever the verdict is, whether he’s innocent or not, the fall-out has been quite swift and brutal. Willard has already been fired from his gig on PBS’ Market Warriors, and apparently, the network is already working on a new show that does not have the actor in it. Looks like he’s already been proven guilty.

Sometimes a headline really does say it all. We read this story TMZ just published and our reaction was — WTF? Fred Willard was caught with his pants down at an adult movie hall, called the Tiki Theatre, last night. Cops arrested him for lewd conduct around 8.45 PM. Apparently it was a case of really bad timing for the Anchorman actor. LAPD undercover vice policemen visited the cinema and ended up finding Willard with his, er, willie out of his unzipped pants. His was, er again, servicing himself, it seems. What we want to know was, was this a routine check by police officers, or did someone call Willard in? Either way, the 72-year-old actor is out already, and we’re guessing he posted bail rather quickly. We bet he was hoping this news wouldn’t get out either. Oh, well. All we can say is, Pee Wee Herman, much? It’s just like what his Anchorman character, Ed Harken would say: “I have no idea where he would have gotten ahold of German pornography. But you and I are mature adults; we’ve both seen our share of pornographic materials. Oh, you never have? Of course you haven’t, how stupid of me. Neither have I. I was just speaking in generalities.”
