‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Star Nicholas Brendon Busted!

Busted in Boise

Just a couple of weeks ago, we learned the happy yet surprising news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon got married in Las Vegas (a week after meeting his new bride). Today, I have some not so happy news to pass along … Nicky got arrested in Idaho on misdemeanor charges of malicious injury to property and resisting arrest. Sigh. Nicky was in Boise this weekend to make an appearance at a comic book convention there and, as I understand it, he had a bad run in with a glass bowl in his hotel. The glass bowl met its end and Nicky got busted by the cops. Ugh. If news of Brendon‘s arrest isn’t sad enough, wait until you see his mugshot :( More »

Michael Phelps Says He’s Going To Rehab, Hopes To ‘Better Understand’ Himself

He's had two DUIs since 2004

Just a few days ago we learned that Michael Phelps, the most decorated gold medalist in Olympic history, had been busted for a second DUI. I think we can all agree that everyone makes mistakes, but at a certain point you have to try to figure out if there’s a pattern. For some of us, 2 DUIs in ten years does not sound so bad (especially in comparison to some other celebrities we follow). But Phelps has decided that it’s two too many, and he’s seeking help at rehab. I think that makes a lot of sense. Click inside for more.

Sad New Details Emerge In The Wake Of Amanda Byne’s Recent DUI Arrest

Adderall Abuse, Clueless Parents, Expulsion from FiDM

On Monday we learned the sad news that troubled former actress Amanda Bynes was arrested again, this time for driving under the influence, and since news of her bust was revealed, lots of sad details have emerged about her life recently. It had seemed like Amanda was doing very well for the better part of this year after she was released from rehab and she enrolled in classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising here in SoCal. But, it turns out that she was expelled from FIDM before her arrest due to erratic behavior. TMZ reports that Amanda was under the influence of Adderall when she was arrested a few days ago — and her parents (ie. her former conservators) had no idea she had been arrested until a videographer from TMZ informed them. You see, the conservatorship that Amanda‘s mother had over her had expired recently … and Amanda moved out of her parents home and … then got arrested. Ugh. So sad. More »

Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps Was Arrested For DUI This Morning

This was his second arrest

Ugh! Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, the most decorated gold medalist in Olympic history, was arrested for DUI early this morning in Maryland. Phelps, as you may know, was previously arrested for driving under the influence back in 2004 but that bust was taken care of when Michael agreed to plead guilty and serve out an 18 month probation sentence. Since then, Phelps has managed to stay completely out of trouble … erm, unless you count that 3 week swimming suspension he suffered after photos of him puffing on a bong made their debut on the Internets back in 2009. Read on for the sad known deets about Michael Phelps‘s DUI bust. More »

Amanda Bynes Busted . . . Again

She got arrested for DUI

After many months of no drama and no run-ins with the police, we learn today that former actress Amanda Bynes was arrested early yesterday morning on charges of driving under the influence. As you may know, Bynes has been recovering at home with her parents here in SoCal after she spent a few months in medically-supervised rehab. Prior to her hospitalization, Bynes had various legal problems which stemmed from her troubling (very-likely drug/alcohol fueled) behavior. With this new arrest, it would appear that Amanda has sadly fallen off the wagon. More »

Justin Bieber Has Been Arrested Again In Canada

He allegedly assaulted someone after an ATV accident

Just a few weeks ago, we learned that pop star Justin Bieber managed to secure a plea bargain in Miami, FL where he was able to plead guilty to lesser charges stemming from his DUI arrest which took place there earlier this year. Just a few days ago, we learn today, JB got himself into a physical altercation with someone while he was vacationing near his hometown in Canada and was arrested (again) over the weekend. According to reports, Bieber got into an accident while driving his ATV and then allegedly assaulted the other person afterward. Yeah, sounds about right. More »

Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Husband Nick Gordon Busted For DUI

He flipped his car in a crazy accident

Back in January we learned that Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston, went and got married to her pseudo brother-turned-fiancé Nick Gordon in a wedding ceremony that wasn’t really sanctioned by her family. Since that time, we haven’t heard much about Nick … that is, until now. Earlier today, Gordon was involved in a pretty serious car accident after he lost control of his vehicle and flipped his car onto its roof. When police showed up to investigate, Nick got arrested for drunk driving. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the accident … which is a miracle considering Nick was driving under the influence. More »

Former Destiny’s Child Member Farrah Franklin Got Busted For Disorderly Conduct

Can you pay my bail, Can you pay my jailhouse bail?

So … things have been kinda tough for singer Farrah Franklin since she was dismissed from Destiny’s Child all those years ago. Earlier this year, we learned that poor Farrah got cut OUT of a #ThrowbackThursday photo shared by Beyoncé on Instagram (the shaaaaaaade) and today we learn that she got her ass arrested over the weekend for drunk and disorderly conduct. Apparently, Farrah passed the eff out on some random person’s front lawn and then tried to tell police that she was only trying to have a sleep over in the woods. SMH. Read on for all the sad deets of Farrah‘s sad bust. More »

Columbus Short BUSTED (Again)!

The former 'Scandal' star was in [another] bar fight

Oh, Columbus. Can you please stop getting into drunken bar fights? Pleeease? The former Scandal Gladiator is really on his trainwreck ish right now. Right around the time the actor was getting into it with his wife (who has filed for divorce), and getting into it with various other folks, he lost his job on Scandal. It sucks to hear that he’s still getting drunk, and getting into fights all over the place. And, the more I think about it, it sucks that we’re not going to see Harrison ever again (hence, my nostalgic choice of photo)! Click inside for more.
