Actress Reese Witherspoon was reportedly arrested this weekend alongside husband James Toth in a DUI incident.
Also, TV sports announcer Al Michaels was arrested over the weekend in Santa Monica in a DUI incident.
A whole lotta drinkin' goin' on!
Longtime datalounge favorite David Ehrenstein was also arrested in a vicious faceslapping incident this weekend also in Santa Monica, at an upscale restaurant.
According to Variety's report, the Legally Blonde actress was arrested with her husband in the early hours of Friday morning in Atlanta, Ga. following an incident in which he was pulled over under suspicion of DUI after reportedly driving in the wrong lane.
Witherspoon, who was riding in the car with her husband, was also arrested for local municipal ordinance after allegedly disobeying the orders of the police man who pulled their car over.
According to the report, the 37-year-old actress was purportedly unruly while her husband was walking in the parking lot in which the officer had instructed him to pull over.
"Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet," the police report, obtained by Variety, details.
The police report continues to document Witherspoon's alleged rowdiness towards the officer while he was administering a sobriety test to her husband.
"'Mrs. Witherspoon asked, 'Do you know my name?' I answered, 'No, I don’t need to know your name.' I then added, 'right now.' Mrs. Witherspoon stated, 'You’re about to find out who I am,'" the police report alleges.
"Mrs. Witherspoon also stated, 'You are going to be on national news.' I advised Mrs. Witherspoon that was fine."
A source close to the situation tells ET that Witherspoon got out of the car because she was concerned about her husband even though she had been told not to by the officer.
Upon her arrest, the source says that Witherspoon asked the officer if he was aware of her name for processing purposes, to which he replied by saying he didn't care. She then said that he would know soon enough.
Her husband purportedly blew a .137 on a Breathalyzer test administered by the officer despite saying that he had only had one drink a few hours prior.
Oops! The damn DL search didn't show that this has already been posted and well followed.
Where was her baby while they were gallivanting around drunk?
Of all the places she could have gotten arrested. Fulton County Jail is a shit hole.
They also got special treatment and were released in a couple of hours. Most people have to wait 8 hours or more until they can be bailed out. Yet they were booked and released in about an hour or two. Their mug shots don't show up on the jail website either. Everyone else who is arrested in Fulton County has their mug shots posted on the website. TMZ must have had to have someone go to the jail and request the mug shots.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
