Lindsay Lohan Released From House Arrest

She’s loose in the city! Lindsay Lohan’s house arrest came to an end today after 35 grueling days of sunning herself by the pool and drinking enough kombucha to set off an ankle monitor. Now that she’s been unleashed back onto society, Lindsay can finally get back to shooting commercials and throwing fabulous parties like she did the entire time she was under house arrest. Wait a minute, Lohan seemed to be more successful and well-liked when she was under house arrest than when she was a free woman… To the nearest bougie jewelry store, Lindsay!

While she is free to move about the country, Lindsay Lohan’s community service at the Downtown Women’s Center in L.A. extends further than America’s tolerance for a non-sober Logan. LiLo can still look forward to 480 hours of community service, in addition to a shoplifters alternative class and counseling. Once she’s done with that, Lindsay can go right back to her illustrious career of, um, let’s see…tweeting ads for the National Inflation Association? Makes wearing that ankle bracelet look down-right dignified.

Ex-CSI Star, Gary Dourdan, Arrested For Ecstasy Possession

You would think he would have got it down to a science by now. Didn’t learn anything from your time with forensics? Ex-CSI actor Gary Dourdan was arrested early morning yesterday in L.A for ecstasy possession. He apparently had “a few pills” on him when cops got to him around 3.30am. Someone had called into to report that the actor had crashed into two parked vehicles. Gary was booked at a nearby police station and released around noon on $10,000 bail.

Needless to say, he’s pretty stupid to drive when that amped up. This isn’t the first time he’s been in trouble with the law regarding drugs, either. Gary was found with cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and prescription pills on his person after police found him asleep in his car in Palm Springs back in 2008. He was discovered around 5 am then. parked on the wrong side of the road, was subsequently arrested and released on $5,000 bail. Prices have gone up since then! Clean your act up, Dourdan. This is really dumb behavior.

Idol Finalist Jacob Lusk Has A Criminal Past! (Sort Of)

Of all the contestants of this season of American Idol to be in trouble with the law, Jacob Lusk isn’t the first one we would have thought of. (Actually, this season barely has any bad seeds when you think about it, huh?) But leave it to TMZ to dig up Lusk’s mug shot from when he was arrested in 2010. Yes, the former spa concierge turned angelic-voiced Idol hopeful has a criminal past that almost prevented him from being on the show. Fortunately, it’s a pretty tame story that shouldn’t tarnish his reputation too much. (Although that wife beater he’s wearing in his mug shot is definitely something we didn’t peg him for.)

Lusk was cited in 2009 for not paying his fare on the L.A. Metro and received a ticket from the police. He didn’t attend his court hearing for the incident and a warrant for his arrest was created. Then, in 2010, one day after learning he was picked for Idol, he was pulled over in a traffic violation, and since he had a warrant, he was arrested and jailed for two days. After pleading with the judge, he was released from probation and allowed to compete on Idol. Hilariously, TMZ reports that Lusk sang to his fellow inmates while he was in jail which is adorable and also sounds like a lost episode of Cop Rock. Let’s hope that his new found fame means he’ll get driven everywhere from now on and he’ll stop getting into transit trouble.

Gucci Mane Arrested For Battery And Violating Probation

Gucci Mane has been arrested on charges that stemmed from an incident that occurred back in January. The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, had a warrant out for his arrest for an incident that occurred in January when he offered a woman $150 to go to a hotel with him and, after she refused, he pushed her out of his moving car.

While he was visiting his probation officer in Atlanta last week, he was arrested for misdemeanor battery and for violating his probation as a result of that. Gucci has been on probation since 2005 for an aggravated assault conviction, which he also served six months in prison for. He was also arrested in November after police officers saw driving the rapper erratically and arguing with a passenger in his car, and after being pulled over, Gooch hit the man and needed to be subdued with pepper spray.

Gucci seems especially angry and aggravated, but you might be too if you had a giant ice cream cone tattoo on your face.

LeBron James’ Mom Arrested For Alleged Assault In Miami

There are certain crimes that only very, very wealthy get arrested for: running Ponzi schemes, poaching endangered birds, hunting men for sport. We can probably add valet abuse to the list after hearing reports alleging  LeBron James’ mom assaulted a valet in Miami Beach. “There was an incident involving Mrs. Gloria James and an employee of our valet parking provider while she was exiting the hotel early Thursday morning,” a spokesperson for the Fontainebleu Hotel said. People reports that Gloria James’ arrest came after an employee of the hotel couldn’t locate her keys; Mama James attempted to swing at him with her purse, missed, then proceeded to slap him in the face. You see, what makes this alleged attack so clearly a rich person crime is that you have to be near enough to a valet to hit one. You also have to be so delirious with money and power to not know how crazy that seems to everyone else on the planet.

According to TMZ, valet parker Rockfeller Sorel told police that Mama James had hit him in the face hard enough to knock herself to the ground, after which he sought medical attention. James was ordered to appear in court on simple battery and disorderly conduct charges. Even more embarrassing for the basketball star, Ms. James was released to Steve Stowe, a Miami Heat executive. LeBron commented on the arrest this afternoon, explaining ““It’s very sensitive because it’s your mother. Of course to have an incident, it’s very sensitive. But the people around me are helping me.” LeBron is going to hear no end of teasing from the guys at the locker room. Or the polo club. Or at the golf club. Or at the second society of which all rich people are a member…club. Pretty much anywhere he goes, LeBron’s going to hear about this.

Willie Nelson’s Drug Bust Court Saga Will Involve A Song Routine

This has got to be a joke! Here’s a little background to this bizarre story. Willie Nelson was busted for pot possession (again) in November last year. The po-po stopped his tour bus at a check post in Louisiana after a “strong odor of marijuana was detected.” Willie’s case is in court now and apparently, the prosecutor will sic the singer with only a $100 fine on one strange condition. Willie has to sing “Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain” in court because apparently, that counts as community service these days! Lets break it down — Willie has to do what he normally does for living, in court because that’s “work” now.

Unfortunately for Willie, while the prosecutor’s clearly a fan, his courtroom performance may ultimately get him nowhere. The final decision will rest in the presiding judge’s hands and if he isn’t a fan of singing-for-freedom, then Willie faces up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Boardwalk Empire Actress Paz de la Huerta Arrested For Assault

When last we heard from Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta, she was turned away from a Golden Globes party for being too drunk to walk. Unfortunately, de la Huerta is in the news again for another drunken incident, but this one turned violent and she was arrested for assault as a result.

de la Huerta was reportedly partying at the Standard Hotel in New York City on Sunday when she and Samantha Swetra, star of MTV’s The City started to argue. Allegedly, Swetra remarked about de la Huerta’s level of intoxication after de la Huerta accidentally fell down and exposed herself, reports the Daily News.  That prompted de la Huerta to throw a glass and punch Swetra in the face. The glass cut Swetra, and in a bizarre turn, she was tended to by Lindsay Lohan who was there hanging out with her. (Oh, Lindsay. Will you ever not be hanging out at bars, even after all you’ve been through?) Swetra filed charges against de la Huerta, who was arrested last night. de la Huerta certainly does love to party, as evidenced in our gallery below of some of her choicest “rough night” photos, unfortunately in this case, she just partied a little too hard.

Lohan Denies Assaulting Kate Major, Claims She Had “Make-Up” Bruises

Lindsay Lohan‘s dad has come up with a completely reasonable, totally legitimate explanation for his alleged domestic assault against Kate Major: she did it herself with a bag of cosmetics! In an interview with RadarOnline, Michael Lohan denies assaulting girlfriend Kate Major, and has some divalicious ideas about how Major sustained her injuries. “She said I gave her a fat lip, she has Restylane in her lips.  I didn’t give her a fat lip.  She did the same thing in West Hampton,” Lohan explains. “I didn’t touch her, she’s full of crap.  I have cuts on my arm.  She put fake makeup on her eyes before.” So not only is a bad lip job and eyeshadow applied in a bumpy car a crime against fashion, it can also be obstructing justice. Wow, who knew Michael Lohan was more observant than the entire police force?

Given that Lohan was also charged with threatening ex-fiance Erin Muller in 2009, the ladies in his life must own a M.A.C. store dedicated whipping up these allegedly “fake” injuries. After Michael Lohan was arrested last night, he complained of chest pains and was taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he remains today. “This was all a set up.  When my lawyers resolve this with the police and I prove this is all a set up the world is going to know about Kate Major,” Lohan vowed. Unless, of course, Kate is able to construct a superior defense lawyer out of eyeliner and lipgloss.

Christina Aguilera Puts Arrest Behind Her, Gets Back To Work

The last photograph we saw of Christina Aguilera‘s was a mugshot. And that was just two days ago. Looks like the singer has put her arrest for public drunkenness behind her, and gone right back to work. This picture emerged today of the singer —looking fully sober, hah — dressed in a black robe and full make-up getting out of Smashbox Studios in L.A., where Christina’s filming a music video. She also left the studio in style, stepping into a black stretch limousine. Hope it doesn’t have a bar!

Christina’s being slated to join the judges panel of NBC’s newest singing competition, The Voice, along with Cee-lo and Adam Levine. But criticism’s have been pouring in due to her recent erratic behavior, that’s all mostly booze related. She needs to buckle down and show people that she can handle the pressure. Working on a music video, which’ll hopefully not be a hot mess, is a great first step.

Russell Brand Free To Attack Paparazzi As He Sees Fit

brandperrymain

Watch out paparazzi! Russell Brand is looking to shove dudes and smash cameras, and not even the law can’t stop him! Arrested for battery following a run-in with a photographer he claims was taking an upskirt of lady friend Katy Perry, it turns out  Russell Brand won’t be charged with anything. Now if you want to see Katy Perry’s underwear, you’ll  just have to look at EVERY CONCERT PHOTO OF KATY PERRY EVER TAKEN.

Says the L.A. City Attorney’s Office spokesman Frank Mateljan of the dismissal, “This is the only action as of now. Based on the info, it has been determined that this is the most appropriate action at this time.” Mateljan then clutched his giant portfolio of Katy Perry panty pictures to his chest and gave a big wink. Oddly, while Brand won’t be thrown in the clink anytime soon, he must meet the photographer who put him under citizen’s arrest in court on Nov. 19, either to hug it out or be yelled at by a judge, we’re not sure. Wow, don’t let people know they can put unruly celebs under citizen arrest. Lindsay Lohan won’t be able to make it to the mailbox without being slide-tackled. [Photo: Getty Images]
