Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Amanda Bynes Arrested for Allegedly Being Under the Influence

Oh no. Looks like Amanda Bynes was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence!

The actress was arrested on Sunday morning with the California Highway Patrol West Valley Office determining that she was indeed on something while behind the wheel, though the substance hasn’t been revealed yet. “Amanda was displaying symptoms that led us to believe she may have been under the influence of a stimulant,” a CHP spokesperson told E! News. “It possibly could be a combination of a stimulant and other drugs. We do not know.”

Amanda was released on $15,000 bail, but this is definitely not over yet. Because she is still in the middle of her three-year probation from a DUI back in 2012, it’s possible that she might have to spend some time behind bars. “As far as the criminal case is concerned, she is facing the real possibility of jail time,” criminal defense attorney Troy Slaten said to E! “If she is convicted of a second-offense DUI, the law requires a minimum of 96 hours (or four days) of jail.” (Slaten has never represented the actress, but just gave some legal opinion on the situation to the media outlet).

After a six month treatment program last year, Amanda seemed to be doing well, moving in with her parents and look healthy! She apparently moved out several months ago, but was attending school at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Irvine, CA. tyra

I’m just….disappointed. I was literally thinking about her the other day, and was happy that she was staying on the right path, and then this. Amanda has so much talent, and I hate to see her revert back to her old ways! Hopefully, she gets it back together.

Chris Pine Pleads Guilty to DUI in New Zealand

Uh oh, looks like international trouble for Chris Pine! The actor has pleaded guilty to a DUI over in New Zealand.

Chris was pulled over by police early March 1, telling them that he had four vodka drinks. He had been celebrating the end of filming Z for Zachariah with the cast and crew of the film, as well as his girlfriend, Iriz Bjork Johannesdottir. When he was pulled over, his blood-alcohol content was at 0.11 percent, above the 0.08 legal limit. He had a hearing on Monday, as his lawyer entered a guilty plea in Ashburton District Court.

As punishment, the actor had his driver’s license in the country suspended for six months and got a small fine of $93, which equals to be $79 is U.S. dollars.

Drinking and driving doesn’t mix people! Lucky for Chris, it wasn’t too bad of a legal issue. He’ll be back in Los Angeles soon. He’s not a celebrity whose name is always in the headlines for trouble, so hopefully nothing like this happens again!

Justin Bieber Arrested on Drag Racing and DUI Charges

Surprise, surprise. Justin Bieber has had another run in with the law.

The singer was arrested early Thursday morning for drag racing and a DUI in Miami Beach. Justin was riding in a rented yellow Lamborghini at the time.

He was officially booked on charges of driving under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest “without violence”, according to police records. After his arrest, Justin apparently cursed out an officer, and admitted to having beer, pot and prescription drugs in his system, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told the Miami Herald.

After a short stint in the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, Justin appeared before a judge for a bond hearing and bail was set at $2,500.

Justin….let’s have a little heart to heart. I seriously feel like Tyra Banks when she went off on that girl on America’s Next Top Model. I am, unashamedly, a little bit of a Belieber. So, as someone who has gotten weird stares for blasting “One Less Lonely Girl” in my car, I can say all this. GET. YOUR. LIFE. TOGETHER. If you keep going at the rate you’re going, you’re going to end up in a place that you sure as hell can’t handle. You were secluded in that jail cell, but let somebody actually get their hands on you!  This isn’t about your fans or your career. This is about you. You might need some serious rehab time, or, at least, some time alone, away from the cameras and the fame, to focus on getting yourself in a better place. Stop acting like a fool just because you’re legal and have money! Get some people on your team that aren’t afraid to sit you down and tell you off when you’re wrong! All of this was never cute. It was never funny. I can just see the comments now, but I actually believe you have talent, and you’re blowing it! Get it together.

Orlando Brown Sentenced to 180 Days Behind Bars

Orlando Brown, best known for his role as Eddie on Disney’s That’s So Raven, is locked up! Two weeks into a 180-day sentence, Orlando was sentenced to jail time after failing to show proof that he completed court-ordered alcohol education classes after he was arrested in 2011 for a DUI.

Even though he technically has 6 months, it’s expected that he will be released early on Sept. 19, since LA County jails are so overcrowded! Lucky him!

This isn’t Orlando’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2007 for drug possession in Texas. Cops pulled him over for driving at night without headlights, and then found nine grams of weed in his side door when the car was searched!

These child stars need to get their lives together! Yeah we’re all human and mistakes, but something so dumb as drunk driving? Come on Eddie! He’s getting out on a technicality, but hopefully he doesn’t do something stupid again. If so, he’ll definitely be in there a lot longer!

Miguel Arrested in L.A. on DUI Charges

Looks like somebody had TOO many drinks! Miguel was apparently arrrested for a DUI in L.A. early Thursday morning after a night out on the town.

The R&B singer was reportedly pulled over while driving in his BMW for speeding and tinted windows. California Highway Patrol officers smelled alcohol and had Miguel do field sobriety tests. He allegedly hit .10 on the BAC scale, above the standard .08 legal limit in the state, and was arrested for driving under the influence.

 

A few hours after being booked, he was released on $5,000 bail. His court date is schedule for September.

This isn’t Miguel’s only legal issue pending. Legal action is still up in the air for him after he decided to go wild and jump over the stage at the Billboard Music Awards this year, with a woman’s head breaking his fall! The girl’s lawyer said that she’s been “exhibiting systems of brain damage.” She might just be, but I’m sure the thought of a nice, hefty settlement is worth it to her!

DMX and DUI: Reunited!

DMX-arrested-for-DUIWe knew it wouldn’t be long and of course, we were right! DMX, who has had more run-ins with the law than anyone rapper in the history of rap-dom, was arrested yet again last night. His crime this time?

Driving under the influence.

The highway patrolmen stopped DMX and tested his alcohol level, which was elevated. DMX was not in the clink very long, however, as he bailed out less than an hour after he was processed. So just how many times has DMX (aka Earl Simmons) been arrested? Think double digits.

The last time DMX was arrested was in February for driving without a license.

3 Doors Down Bassist Todd Harrell in Fatal DUI Crash

todd-harrell-300

And here’s our three, folks! And this time, there have been casualties!

Todd Harrell, the bassist for 3 Doors Down, is sitting in a prison cell and being charged with vehicular homicide after allegedly causing a fatal crash on Friday night (the same night that Al Michaels and Reese Witherspoon were Jesus juicing) while on illegal drugs and alcohol.

While in Nashville, his Cadillac hit a truck, which then spiraled out of control and overturned. The driver of the truck was not wearing his seatbelt, was thrown from the truck and died at the scene. The police at the investigation noted that Harrell had been drinking and was under the influence of the prescription drugs Lortab and Xanax. When the police searched his car, they found more prescription drugs to the tune of: 8 Xanax pills, 24 Oxycodone pills, and 4 Oxymorphone pills. The police checked the trunk and Lindsay Lohan was hiding in it.

This is just clear cut stupidity! If you are going to drink, then don’t drive. And if you’re a celebrity, then you (usually) have money, which means that you should have a driver or at least funds for a taxi. So we here at VIP say lock him away and throw away the key!!

Al Michaels…DUI’ed!

It seems like this past weekend was the weekend of Jesus juicing! First, Reese Witherspoon and her husband are caught bobbing and weaving and drinking in Atlanta. And now? The world’s most famous sportscaster has joined the club!

Al Michaels, the commentator for NBC’s Sunday Night Football, was pulled over by the Santa Monica police on Friday night for drinking and being over the legal limit of .08. Apparently, the announcer was only barely over the legal limit but it doesn’t matter. If you’re over the legal limit, you’ve got to pay the piper! Michaels was booked and is scheduled to appear in court on the charges on June 26th. It used to be that celebrity deaths happened in threes, but now it appears that this number applies to DUIs as well. That means we have one more to go, VIPers. Who will it be?!

Kevin Hart: “I’m Guilty!”

Kevin Hart is not like a lot of celebrities (cough: Lohan, Bynes) that play shy and coy when it comes to their arrests. The comedian was recently hauled into jail for a DUI this weekend and when he busted out of jail and was approached by the swarm of paparazzikevin-hart-tickets, he did not hedge or deny the allegations that he was cruising down the highway at upwards of 90 miles per hour on the step-cousin to Jesus juice.

No!

Hart admitted fully to his incoherent driving and substance abuse at the wheel of his car and even admitted it to the California Highway Patrol when they stopped him. After paying a $5,000 bond, he was released. No word yet on any further details, but is there really any more to tell? Kevin Hart takes all of the fun out of our job. We cannot speculate now on what he did because he already gave us the vitals. Now we’re gonna have to go pick on another celebrity. Who’s next?!

Papa Joe Simpson Arrested!

And it wasn’t for talking about his daughter’s breasts!

Papa Joe Simpson may think that his daughter’s boobs are the freakin’ cat’s meow, but he apparently loves throwing back a little booze and getting behind the wheel of an automobile too.

According to TMZ, Papa Joe got his butt arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles!

According to law enforcement sources, 54-year-old Joe was busted on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks on August 4 at around 10 PM and get this, they had a sneaking suspicion that Joe was boozed up! And so, they cuffed his crazy ass and hauled him to jail where he spend the rest of the night.

Come on peeps. I have to see this mugshot.

Since this is his first offense, I have a hunch that this joker is only going to get a fine. Take the key and lock him up, big fat chain and all.

Amanda Bynes Charged For DUI!

Amanda Bynes is the new Freckles. Triston said it and I’ll reiterate it. Girlfriend has gone off the freakin’ deep end. Not only is she getting herself into trouble via motor vehicle and booze, she’s taking it a step further by asking the President of the United States Barack Obama to bail her out! And I am NOT kidding.

On April 6th, Bynes got busted and refused to complete a chemical test to see whether she had drugs in her system. And now the aftermath is, she isn’t going to take her charges without a fight. She took to her Twitter and tweeted the freakin’ President!

She tweeted, “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.”

Yeah because THAT is going to help your case.

Shortly after that incident Bynes got in an alleged hit-and-run in Hollywood where she sideswiped another vehicle while trying to pass, so reports TMZ.

An arraignment for Bynes’ DUI case is scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Girlfriend needs a job because obviously she doesn’t have enough to do. I’m waiting for her to steal jewelry next.

Amanda Bynes Arrested for DUI

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Way to spend your birthday week, woman. Amanda Bynes was arrested early Friday morning for driving under the influence, after she crashed into a police car!
According to PEOPLE, the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department released an official statement of the incident, stating at 3 a.m. on Friday, “a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy in a marked black and white radio car, was stopped at the intersection of … Robertson Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard preparing to turn right onto Santa Monica Boulevard when a black BMW driven by actress Amanda Bynes attempted to pass the right of the radio car, colliding with the right rear quarter panel of the radio car.”

“There was minor paint transfer damage to both vehicles,” the police statement continued. “Amanda Bynes was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence and booked at West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.”

The former actress, who celebrated her 26th birthday on April 3, was still in custody on Friday morning with bail reportedly set at $5,000.

A month before, Amanda had been stopped by police for talking on her cell phone while driving, and then sped away.

Amanda, get yourself together! It’s like this girl is starting on a downward spiral from these police encounters to her terrible fashion sense as of late! Not trying to look up and have another child actress gone wrong on our hands!

Cissy Houston Thinks Bobby Brown’s DUI arrest Further Proves He’s A Douchebag Dad!

Cissy Houston is said to be on a gawd damn rampage now that Bobby Brown got busted with a DUI. TMZ is reporting that the mother of the late Whitney is on a mission to make sure that Bobbi Kristina stays the hell away from her corrupt father.

The website reports:

Whitney Houston‘s mother believes Bobby Brown‘s DUI arrest proves what she’s been telling people all along … he’s just a bad dude.

Sources close to Cissy Houston tell us … she’s always felt Bobby was a cancer … who infected Whitney’s life with negative influences.

We’re told Cissy felt “vindicated” when she found out Bobby was arrested for driving drunk on Monday afternoon … and believes the incident is exactly why she wants Bobby to “keep his distance” from his daughter Bobbi Kristina.

The Houstons believe Bobbi K has been in a “vulnerable place” since Whitney passed … and as one source puts it, “This is the last person she needs to be around.”

Instead, we’re told Cissy wants Bobbi Kristina to hang around “positive mentors” … like Clive Davis.

I get that. Bobby Brown is effed up but I have a really hard time believing that Cissy Houston is going around to various media outlets talking trash about Bobby and running her mouth to TMZ.

I’m pretty sure Cissy has better things to do. It would honestly shock the crap out of me if she was shocked that Bobby got his butt arrested for drinking under the influence. Seriously.

Bobby Brown Arrested For DUI!

Bobby Brown was arrested! How come this is some news that doesn’t quite surprise? Ohhhhh. Now I know. This guy has been arrested just as many, if not more times than Freckles (or so it seems like it)!

So here’s the story. Apparently Brown got his butt busted for DUI and cops believe that Bobby was drunk at the time of his arrest.

TMZ is reporting that Brown is said to have been pulled over in Reseda, California, at 12:20 p.m. PT for allegedly driving while talking on a cell phone. It’s not known what substance police believe Brown had been using before getting behind the wheel, but law-enforcement sources told the website the singer was taken into custody at a Van Nuys jail.

If this guy is boozing while behind the wheel, he’s boozing big time at his home and on the road. The guy is mourning his ex love, for crying out loud.

Brown already has a DUI conviction that he got in 1996 after being arrested in Georgia. He did serve 8 days. So I think it is safe to say, he probably will get a hefty fine and/or more than 8 days jail time. But then again, this IS California.
