I never think of Alec Baldwin as having a short fuse so much as just a rip cord that explodes whenever he gets out of a chair and interacts with the world-at-large. Alec isn’t exactly known for being an Ina Garten-type who soothes our soul with a nice dinner party and warm words. He. Is. Out. To. RAGE! Well, he rages unless his wife Hilaria Baldwin is needing him to step in and take photos in lieu of whoever is her normal Instagram influencer photog. That rage manifested itself in a tiff over a New York City parking spot today, punches were thrown, and Alec was the one who ended up in handcuffs.
After two disturbing days full of news about suspicious packages containing homemade pipe bombs being mailed to several high-profile Democratic politicians and Trump haters, reports are rolling in from everywhere that the so-called MAGAbomber has been arrested.
I like to imagine that’s the same look the ghost of Ice-T past would give to present day Ice-T if he heard this news. Like, “Are we really too broke to afford $2.75 in loose change?” It’s not a situation of brokeness, but more of one in which Ice-T skipped through thinking he had a toll transmitter device on him.
TMZ says Ice-T was arrested this morning by Port Authority police for toll evasion. Ice was making his way toward the George Washington Bridge from the New Jersey side when he reportedly tried crossing his new McLaren sports car into the E-ZPass lane. He thought he had an E-ZPass transmitter in his car that prepays for the toll, but there was no transmitter in hi vehicle. Ice-T kept on driving, and that’s when police pulled him over for skipping out on his toll.
Ice-T tells TMZ that he’s got seven E-ZPasses at home, and that he forgot to put one in his new car, that was just shipped to him from California. Ice was telling the truth about that; the car was so new, it wasn’t even registered yet.
So police arrested him for toll evasion and gave him a ticket for driving an unregistered vehicle. Ice says police released him and he drove to the Law & Order: SVU set, where he was originally headed. Or was he released? Ice-T plays such a convincing cop, I wouldn’t be surprised if he successfully bamboozled them out of his arrest by pretending to be one of them. “Good job fellas, another scumbag perp off the streets. Hey, I’ll be right back, I’m gonna get a coffee. And while I’m there, I’ll just drop these McLaren keys off into evidence…”
Pooch Hall From “Ray Donovan” Was Arrested For Reportedly Letting His 2-Year-Old Be His Designated Driver
Normally this would be where I would make a joke about this being a situation for Ray Donovan to come in and fix, but I have a feeling even he would be like “Wait…you let your 2-year-old drive?? Nope, I’m out of here, good luck with the police.”
TMZ reports that Sarah Palin’s 29-year-old Track Palin is on-track (I had to) to officially become the worst Palin. On Friday night, Alaska State Troopers responded to a report of a disturbance at Track’s home in Wasilla. Track allegedly got violent with a woman at the residence, although it’s not known who the woman is or what her relation to Track is. The Alaska Department of Public Safety (whose motto should simply be: Stay Safe – Stay Away from the Palins) would only describe the woman as an acquaintance.
If the name Gretchen Wilson isn’t ringing any bells, then you maybe didn’t live in the kind of town where “Redneck Woman” was blasted at every wedding, prom, tailgate, family bonfire, or jail-release celebration. But after today, you’ll know Gretchen Wilson as the country singer who proved she wasn’t exactly lying about being trashy n’ proud when she got arrested during an airplane bathroom fight on Tuesday. As someone who has heard Gretchen Wilson provide the soundtrack to many a truck-based gathering, I’m a little shocked that this fight happened in the bathroom of an airplane and not a Walmart. Not very on-brand for Gretchen.
