America has a fascination with celebrity arrests, but the situation always gets a bit more juicy when that celebrity has a complete meltdown.
We are going to go over some of our favorite celebrity arrest meltdowns.
First in line? Today’s big story… Amanda Bynes.
Bynes was arrested in midtown Manhattan just before 8 PM on Thursday after she launched her marijuana bong out of her apartment window.
A building official initially called the cops after Bynes was seen smoking weed and rolling a joint in the lobby.
When the officers got to her apartment they found heavy clouds of smoke and a frantic Bynes.
She was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence, and criminal possession of marijuana.
Her mug shot shows a very bald Amanda, without her famous blonde hair extensions.
Now… onto America’s sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon.
Reese was arrested in Atlanta during the early hours of April 19th after she tried to interfere with her husband’s DUI questioning.
A video was recently released which shows the 37-year-old actress drunkenly yelling at the officer, asking if he knew who he was, telling him she was an American citizen, and then allegedly telling him she was pregnant… which she is not.
She later apologized for the foul mouth rant, admitting she had had ‘one too many’ drinks that night.
Reese’s husband, Jim Toth was charged with drunk driving and Reese was arrested for disorderly conduct.
‘Lost’ star Mathew Fox was charged with a DUI In Bend, Oregon of all places at 3:30AM on May 4th.
Fox was allegedly swerving in and out of his lane and refusing to signal on his way to a fast food spot to buy some late night snacks.
He was charged with suspicion of driving under the influence.
But that’s NOT my favorite Mathew Fox meltdown… that award goes to Fox’s alleged assault in August 2011 in Cleveland.
A party bus driver claims she was assaulted by an intoxicated Fox after she would not allow him to enter her bus.
The bus driver sued Fox for at least $75,000 in September claiming he drunkenly punched her in the chest, arm, legs, and groin. OUCH.
Fox was detained by police but no official arrest was made.
Fox has since been cleared of all charges in the assault case.
Celebrities. Stop getting arrested. But if you must, please continue do it in style.
