CELEBRITIES who have been arrested.
Some are trite: OJ Simpson's arrest for murder, Dubya's for DUI, bunches of rock 'n' rollers arrested for drug possession. But some are intriguing.
|Provoking fierce civic outrage among San Antonians in 1982, Ozzy Osbourne was arrested for public intoxication and urinating on Alamo grounds. The singer, whose wife attempted to help him stop drinking by taking his clothes so that he would be forced to wear hers, was found in a green evening gown and carrying a bottle of Courvoisier. [...] In a recent interview, Osbourne said in retrospect, "One of my greatest regrets is that I urinated on the Alamo."|
Forget the urinating on the Alamo for a moment. His wife was trying to get Ozzy to wear her clothes? To get him to stop drinking? Huh? I suppose that it wasn't working, since he was carrying a bottle of Courvoisier at the time. Well, back to the drawing board.
|Mae West - 1926 NY- Arrested and booked for corrupting the "morals of youth and others" for doing her play called "sex".|
Poor Mae. Like they say, it doesn't pay to be ahead of your time. The pioneers are the ones with the arrows in their backs.
|Quentin Tarantino spent 10 days in an L.A. jail for nonpayment of $7,000 worth of parking tickets.|
$7,000? Quentin! My man! What an inspiration to all of us oppressed drivers everywhere, cruising endlessly looking for a parking space, this man is a noble savage, free and untrammeled by the petty tyrannies of society, who parks wildly and freely, where he wants, for as long as he wants. I envy him.
