Amanda Bynes Hits A Cop Car, Gets Busted For DUI

Say it ain’t so! TMZ is reporting that our All That crush Amanda Bynes has been arrested for driving under the influence after she rammed a cop car early this morning. Yes, not just any car. A cop car. Damn, that’s bad. Like, “hitting-a-baby-stroller” level bad. The 26-year-old former Nickelodeon star was pulled over at 3 AM in West Hollywood after her attempts to pass a cruise ended in collision. She was given a field sobriety test and found “not fit to be behind the wheel.” She’s being held on $5,000 bail.

Amanda has apparently been hitting the party scene pretty hard lately. TMZ managed to catch her leaving a St. Patrick’s Day party last month, looking extremely worse for the wear. Despite this, she reportedly got into her car and drove off into the night.  And just before that Bynes drove off as a cop was in the middle of writing her a ticket! This is definitely not what we like about you, Amanda. Please don’t take Lindsay Lohan’s recently vacated spot as Hollywood Prohibition Queen!

That ’70s Show Lisa Robin Kelly’s GMA Interview Is Heartbreaking

video platform video management video solutions video player

If you were holding off on watching Lisa Robin Kelly‘s Good Morning America interview for fear that it would be too sad…you really hit the nail on the head this time. “My poor mother has to look at that picture of me,” the That ’70s Show star wept when confronted with her recent mugshot. “That doesn’t look like me. That’s not me.” When asked by ABC News’ Abbie Boudreau if she was on any substances when she was arrested this past weekend on domestic abuse charges, the actress fervently denied it. “There is nothing that I was on or abusing at that time,” she declares, while adding that abuse allegations made by her ex John Michas were “all bunch of made-up stuff!” Good, because we could not deal with this situation getting any more tragic.

To whit, Kelly also discussed her alcoholism, instigated by the loss of a baby. “With the ’70s Show, I was guilty of the drinking problem, and I ran,” Kelly admits, before concluding happily, “If I can make it through this, I can make it through anything.” Then just when you think you won’t have to grab any more tissues, Katie Couric adds, “It sort of seems like she’s kind of unraveling, doesn’t she?” Katie, come on! We mean, clearly! Obviously! But you don’t have to say it out loud!

George Clooney Arrested In Washington DC

First Russell Brand, and now this!? George Clooney has been arrested at a Washington DC protest concerning the crisis in Sudan. “They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children,” the actor’s rep told TMZ. “They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.” Clooney had assembled with other demonstrators outside the Sudanese embassy when federal agents carted him off. Reportedly a dozen other high ranking figures were also arrested, including a congressman, human rights leaders and even George’s father, Nick! The story is still breaking, but stay tuned for what’s sure to be one of the hottest mugshots of all time.

Russell Brand’s Mugshot Says It All

We’re not sure if Russell Brand‘s alleged mugshot, posed by Splash News Online, conveys the message “Oh, not this again.” or “Thank god I got arrested on a day when my hair looks this good” or “Wait,…that Steve Jobs tweet was actually kind of rude, wasn’t it?,” but either way the comedian’s solemn expression does not suggest a man who is glad he threw that paparazzo’s phone through the window of a law firm in New Orleans. TMZ reports that Brand is now in police custody, having been arrested this afternoon for Monday’s cell-hurling incident. The office windows of Louisiana are safe…for now.

As if Russell’s mugshot pic isn’t pouty enough, it turns out he’s allegedly already paid for the window. According to TMZ, Brand paid $240 as reimbursement for the window repair, sending a production assistant with money in hand to the scene of the crime. Seeing as how Brand has already ponied up the dough, we guess we don’t really see how arresting him is necessary. Unless…unless the New Orleans police force just wanted to give everyone a new celeb mugshot to look at? Aw, you guys! How considerate of you! You too, Russell, though your photo sort of makes you look like you want to throw all the cell phones in the world…at our faces.

Robin Thicke Busted For Pot Possession

In case you were wondering whether singer Robin Thicke‘s buttery smoothness was natural or herbally-enhanced…well, this doesn’t really clarify anything, does it? It does, however, shed light on what he does to relax, seeing as how cops busted the singer as he sparked up in a Cadillac Escalade on East 21st Street in Manhattan this afternoon. We can’t say we took Thicke for a huge ganja fan, though we guess that does explain why he went on that diatribe about Paul Patton’s orgasms in Essence back in December. That was not the rational decision of a lucid mind!

Robin joins a recent grab bag of celebs who’ve been arrested for marijuana possession since the new year, including Snoop Dogg and Mirror, Mirror star Armie Hammer. According to TMZ, Thicke was allegedly polite, even signing a few autographs during his arrest. Thankfully the singer was soon released. The man cannot live without his silk pajamas and cognac, and we are 99% those are contraband in prison.

Cheer Up, Suge Knight! It’s Just An Arrest!

Suge Knight, it breaks our hearts to see you so completely bummed out like this. Things really aren’t so bad! So, according to TMZ, you got arrested last night in Las Vegas after making an “unsafe lane change” in your Bentley. And, okay, sure, the cops noticed that you had several warrants out for your arrest for minor traffic violations and, yes, maybe they decided to search your car and found a “small amount” of marijuana in your possession. Then you posed for the World’s Glummest Celebrity Mugshot.  But do you know what Suge Knight calls an arrest in Las Vegas? Wednesday night. Ah…is that a smile we see? We thought so.

Randy Travis Arrest Story Sounds Like A Country Song

Not to kick a man while he’s down, but, darn it if the story of Randy Travis‘ arrest this morning doesn’t sound like something you’d like to hear accompanied by a twangy guitar. From what we gather, piecing things together from the beginning, the country crooner had “an evening of celebrating the Super Bowl” (per his official statement) and an argument with his girlfriend (per what he told the police) that somehow resulted in him driving his 1998 black Pontiac (damn, that’s kind of an old car for an award-winning pro, no?) to the First Baptist Church of Sanger, Texas, on Monday morning, the local NBC affiliate reports. He said he was trying to drive back to his ranch, 20 miles away, but the officer found him parked in front of the church with an open bottle of wine in the passenger seat.

“Mr. Travis was unaware of his location and kept asking me to take him home,” the officer stated. Travis was booked at 1:30 a.m. at the Denton County jail and released a few hours later.

Home Improvement‘s Taran Noah Smith Busted For Drugs, DUI Wilson Weeps

Look, Taran Noah Smith, go ahead and shoot a nail gun though Al’s foot if you feel like it. Accidentally ram a lawnmower through the wall of the soundstage if it tickles your fancy, but driving drunk and doing drugs? We have to draw the line somewhere. Sadly, according to TMZ, Smith, the youngest of Tim Allen’s be-sweatshirted sons on the classic ’90s sitcom Home Improvement, was arrested this morning for an alleged DUI and felony drug possession. It’s always the quiet ones…with the bowl haircuts.

Los Angeles law enforcement allegedly found Smith in the possession of hash after noticing his Honda Accord was both parked in front of a fire hydrant and emitting a “strong odor” of an illegal substance. Well, it’s like Chinese philosopher Chuang Tse once said, “You cannot speak of the ocean to a well frog, you cannot speak of ice to a summer insect.” Wow, what was Wilson talking about? That advice isn’t helpful at all!

Armie Hammer Manages To Look Charming Even In Mugshots

We can forgive the dodgy looking shirt and the popped collar because this is one of the nicest celebrity mugshots we’ve ever seen! There is absolutely nothing sordid about this picture of Armie Hammer. Why would anyone put this sweet, smiling man into jail, right? Armie was arrested and jailed for one night in Sierra Blanca, Texas, for pot possession last November. He was busted with three medicinal pot cookies and one brownie by drug-sniffing dogs at a border patrol checkpoint. We’ve checked out some nazzty mugshots in our time, but this is the absolute opposite of everything we’ve seen. Plus, we know he’s not exactly a hardened criminal, so we have no qualms in appreciating his aesthetics.

Armie Hammer Busted For Pot Possession In Texas

The Social Network? More like The Stoner Network! Eh? The Stoned Ranger? Yeah, we’re happy with that one. TMZ reports that Mirror, Mirror actor Armie Hammer was arrested for pot possession back on November 30. The time delay suggests to us that Armie’s publicist has been hustling to keep this incident out of the news. Unfortunately, our hunger for embarrassing celebrity stories cannot be satisfied. Might we even say we have the “munchies” for humiliating celeb news? No? Alrighty then.

The Lone Ranger star was reportedly found with three medicinal pot cookies and one brownie by drug-sniffing dogs at a border patrol checkpoint. The arrest was made in Sierra Blanca, Texas, the same town where Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson have been busted for the same giggle-inducing crime. As a result, Hammer spent a one single day in jail. Let’s just hope his fellow prisoners were big Reefer fans. Because Armie was on that CW show Reaper? We are trying so hard to please you.
