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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
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 »
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.

RDJ issues an official statement
Robert Downey, Jr.‘s 20-year old son Indio Falconer was arrested in West Hollywood, CA yesterday on drug possession charges after police noticed him smoking “something” out of a pipe as he drove in car with friends. The car was pulled over and Indio was found with cocaine in his possession. As you may know, RDJ long-suffered from drug addiction in the 90s and naturally, he is very concerned for his son. RDJ has already issued an official statement regarding his son’s arrest, which you can read in full below. More »
Isn't it time we REALLY acknowledge that alcohol IS a drug?!?!
Okay, sooo. Shia LaBeouf is a hot mess right now, but let me just say that it could easily be a lot deeper than we think. We all know by now that when someone—anyone (celebrities, teens, children, adults)—acts out, it’s because they are going through some stuff. We don’t know what Shia is going through right now, but considering his arrest at Broadway’s Cabaret, it’s safe to say he could use a little help. Right now reports are flying around declaring that the actor absolutely was not on drugs that night. But he was definitely drinking. I think there’s something really problematic about this way of thinking, in which we collectively decide that since he wasn’t high on drugs (he was “just” drunk), there’s really nothing to worry about.

But it was an accident
Ice-T‘s 19-year old grandson, Elijah Marrow, was arrested earlier this week after he accidentally fired an illegal gun in his possession, killing his roommate Daryus Johnson, also 19. Not only was Marrow busted for the gun charges, he was also found in possession of marijuana that police believe he intended to sell. Man. Is this not the saddest thing you’ve heard all day? One 19-year old man killed accidentally by his friend and the other 19-year old man will likely lose his life to prison. So sad. More »
