by Harley W. Lond, posted Feb 16th 2010 10:14PM
Gary Coleman, who was arrested Jan. 24 after police responded to a call from Coleman's house for a domestic disturbance (police found no crime was committed, but he was picked up because of a warrant stemming from a prior domestic disturbance incident), got nasty on 'The Insider' (weekdays, 7:30PM ET on CBS) when asked if he abuses his wife.

His initial response was "You can go drown yourself in the ocean," but as the questioning became more and more heated, Coleman's language escalated and he finally walked off the show.

Watch the video after the jump.

Food Network Chef Gets Cooked by the Cops

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 10th 2010 6:02PM
It seems that one of the stars of the Food Networks' "Worst Chefs in America" is also one of America's worst drivers.

Beau MacMillan, one of the show's stars, told TMZ that he got nabbed by the fuzz in Arizona over the weekend on an outstanding warrant for an unpaid traffic ticket.

He claimed he was pulled over for failing to stop at a red light and when police ran his driver's license, they found a warrant attached to his record. MacMillan said the warrant was for an unpaid ticket caught by a traffic enforcement camera, but he never received the ticket because he had moved to a new address. He also missed his court date because he was in New York filming for his show. So get ready for Food Network's newest show, "Worst Chefs in America's Penal System."

Chuck Lorre: Charlie Sheen is the "consummate pro" - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 9th 2010 1:40PM
Charlie SheenMore news bits from the Langham Huntington in Pasadena. Chuck Lorre and his two show runners, Lee Aronsohn of Two and a Half Men and Bill Prady of The Big Bang Theory were on stage discussing their shows. Inevitably -- though not right off the bat -- a question about Charlie Sheen came up.

Lorre starts by asking, "What happened with Charlie...?" before saying that Sheen reported for work as usual last week, after being arrested in Las Vegas Colorado on domestic violence charges over the holidays, and that they had one of their best tapings ever.

"Charlie's a consummate pro," said Lorre. "He shows up and delivers."

During the post-panel reporter scrum, Lorre seemed non-plussed by the events reporters' curiosity over Sheen's return to the set, often shrugging his shoulders as if to say, "why are you guys asking me about this?" Sheen showed up, they had a good week, and it's business as usual. That's it. I guess any chatter that was on the set that week will be kept private.

Family Ties star arrested for assault again

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 7th 2009 8:40PM
The former Family Ties star has been busted again, this time for an assault he barely remembers.

Brian Bonsall, the actor who played little Andy Keaton on Family Ties, has been picked up in Colorado for assault. Police arrested him for smashing a bar stool over his friend while the two were drinking. Drugs may also have been involved since the police report said, "He and Trujillo both are bipolar and like drugs. Bonsall said that he takes a lot of drugs and sometimes those drugs make him forget things."

It gets worse. Prosecutors believe he violated his probation from his previous assault involving a former girlfriend and filed a warrant for his arrest, so now he could face serious jail time.

ShamWow guy arrested

ShamWowYou'll never look at infomercials the same way again.

The ShamWow pitchman, whose real name is Vince Shlomi, was arrested in South Beach in Florida for getting into an altercation at a hotel. Seems that he paid $1000 for the services of a prostitute for an evening, and when he started to kiss her, she bit his tongue and wouldn't let go! So he started to punch her several times until she let go of his tongue. He ran to the lobby and had hotel workers call the cops.

It's not the first time the prostitute was arrested, but she's thinking about suing Shlomi for the incident. I guess she didn't love his nuts. Charges against both of them have been dropped.

This actually happened last month, according to The Smoking Gun, which has all of the details (of course), including Shlomi's mug shot. They even have an interview with the woman involved.

Office actor busted for drugs

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 16th 2008 12:03PM
Craig Phillip Robinson as Daryl PhilbinSo much for being a role model for children. Craig Phillip Robinson, who plays warehouse foreman Daryl Philbin on The Office was busted for possession of drugs. Actually, he was arrested in June and the felony charges for possessing MDMA, also known as ecstasy, and methamphetamine were just filed.

Ah, drugs and Hollywood. The perfect pair. I don't know how this will affect his standing with NBC, but his character is low-key enough to easily be replaced on the show. On the other hand, celebrities (including minor ones) are caught so much with drugs nowadays it should practically be expected. Perhaps NBC should have had better drug testing.

If you look at his IMDB profile, you'll see that Robinson has been in quite a few movies (most recently Pineapple Express). Given that, I think the only thing this arrest is going to do to his career is strengthen it. He'll do the usual shtick of apologizing and getting community service and then take on larger roles.

The Tudors: Episode 2-09

by Kristin Sample, posted May 25th 2008 10:40PM
Jonathan Rhys Meyers(S02E09) "These bloody days have broken my heart. My lust, my youth do them depart. And blind desire of ambitious souls who haste to climb, seeks to revert. And about the throne, the thunder rolls." --Sir Thomas Wyatt (voiceover)

This was a dark episode. As much as I disliked Anne during her ascension to the throne and sided with the steadfast and pious Queen Catherine, I hated seeing Anne's demise come to a head this episode. Somewhere along the way, Anne became the victim on this show. The Tudors, in my opinion, has done a good job of creating a multi-faceted character on the part of Anne Boleyn. Once a villain, she ended up a sacrifice to male-dominated political power play.

Reality TV show director arrested for false imprisonment

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 14th 2008 7:42PM
Pauper to PrincessIn a case of reality television going too far, a director has been arrested in Florida for locking half his contestants in the house they were occupying. The show was called Pauper to Princess and its concept was to build eight women's self-esteem and help them grow physically, mentally and spiritually.

The part that I really find amusing is that the excuse the director Marc Brilleman gave for locking the women in the house was "they could not leave because they were being disciplined". Um, disciplined? Is this some sort of sadomasochistic fantasy going on behind these doors? Admittedly I haven't read the contracts, but if they broke the contract by leaving the house, couldn't you just fire and/or not pay them?

Kiefer Sutherland starts 24(x2) day jail sentence

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 6th 2007 10:19AM

Kiefer SutherlandKiefer Sutherland has reported early for his jail sentence, according to this Yahoo! article. He was sentenced Wednesday for his drunk driving arrest in October, his second in three years. While he could have waited until February 12th to begin his sentence, the Emmy-winning actor instead opted to begin immediately. This may be because he'd rather get it out of the way now while production is halted on 24 due to the strike. I wonder if he and the inmates will sit around and watch old episodes of 24 on prison TV. (Are they allowed to watch Prison Break in prison?)

Charges dropped against Dog the Bounty Hunter

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 2nd 2007 5:00PM

dog the bounty hunterThis week, the First Criminal Court in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico dismissed charges against Duane "Dog" Chapman, who was arrested in 2003 on charges of illegal detention after capturing Max Factor heir Andrew Luster. The arrest eventually led to the A&E series Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Last September, Mexican authorities requested Chapman, his son Leland and his work partner Tim Chapman (no relation) be extradited to Mexico to face charges of leaving the country instead of staying for their court date. Chapman has said in interviews that they left the country on the advice of their legal counsel.

HBO chairman Albrecht steps down after assault arrest

by Joel Keller, posted May 10th 2007 10:39AM
Chris AlbrechtAfter being arrested in Las Vegas last weekend, accused of assaulting his girlfriend, HBO chairman and CEO has decided to step down from his position.

Of course, that's what Time Warner, HBO's (and our) parent company, said in a statement. But according to a statement from Albrecht, the resignation was tendered at the request of his TW bosses. Right after the incident happened, Albrecht was supposed to take a leave of absence so he can continue alcohol treatments and work with AA that he had discontinued, but other incidents involving assaults against women were revealed, prompting TW to ask for the executive's resignation.

The network's COO, Bill Nelson, will assume Albrecht's duties on an interim basis until a successor is found. Albrecht had been with the network since 1985.

Case against Dog the bounty hunter halted for now

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 21st 2006 11:51AM

dog the bounty hunterThe Mexican federal government has halted their case against Duane "Dog" Chapman until more evidence and witness testimonies can be collected. Chapman, star of the popular A&E series Dog the Bounty Hunter, was arrested by Mexican authorities in 2003 after apprehending Max Factor heir Andrew Luster, who was later convicted of rape and sentenced to prison. Bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico, but after posting bail Dog headed back to the US with his son Leland and his work partner Tim Chapman on the advice of Dog's lawyer in Mexico, who told the bounty hunter it wasn't necessary to return for a scheduled court hearing. That decision came back to haunt them, however, when federal agents arrested the three men back in September. Since then, they've been awaiting an extradition hearing to determine whether they'll be sent back to Mexico to face charges. Fans of the series, as well as some members of congress, have rallied around the famed bounty hunter. Dog has been under house arrest, but a judge recently allowed his monitoring bracelet to be removed.

Congress weighs in on Dog the Bounty Hunter case

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 14th 2006 7:07PM

dog the bounty hunterWhile Duane "Dog" Chapman awaits trial to decide if he'll be tried in Mexico after his recent arrest for illegal detention of convicted rapist and Max Factor heir Andrew Luster, twenty-nine members of Congress have asked Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to deny the Mexican government's extradition request to have Chapman sent there for trial. Chapman, along with his son Leland and partner Tim Chapman, were arrested by Mexican authorities for illegal detention after capturing Luster in 2003. The three posted bail but never returned for their court date. Bounty hunting is illegal in Mexico, and Chapman refused to relinquish Luster to the Mexican authorities. Plans to have Chapman extradited to Mexico were put in motion only a few days before the statute of limitations was set to expire.
