Gerard Depardieu Arrested For DUI

According to reports, French actor Gerard Depardieu has been arrested for driving his scooter while under the influence of alcohol.





Depardieu was held for questioning by cops on Thursday afternoon after a minor accident in Paris, which saw Gerard fall off his scooter and scrape his elbow. No one else was hurt in the accident.

According to Agence France-Presse, when cops arrived on the scene, Depardieu, 63, failed a sobriety test blowing a blood alcohol level of 1.8 grams per litre, nearly three times the French limit for driving of 0.5.

He was then brought to a police station to face misdemeanor charges "after a period of sobering up," a source revealed to the French news agency.


It has to be noted that this is isn't the first time Depardieu has found himself in hot water with the authorities on the road.





Back in August, a motorist filed a complaint against Depardieu accusing him of assault and battery following an alleged altercation in Paris.



What do you think? Does Depardieu have a drinking problem?

Lindsay Lohan In Rehab To Avoid Jail ?

Even though Lindsay Lohan has been arrested twice in the last few months and has likely violated her probation, she reportedly hopes to avoid going to jail by entering rehab for at least six months!




"Lindsay's manager and agent have been telling her for months that she must go to rehab to save her life. Until now she has resisted, but after her arrest this morning she realizes she needs help," a source close to Lindsay was quoted as saying.


"It's very likely that Lindsay won't fight the probation violation charges and throw herself at the mercy of the court and hopes to avoid jail time by going to rehab for at least six months," the source revealed.


In case you have missed it, Lindsay was arrested again early Thursday morning in New York City at the club Avenue after she allegedly hit a woman in the club.


According to a club insider: "Lindsay was completely out of control. She was drinking way too much booze and was doing cocaine." 

With the latest legal trouble, the source stated Lindsay could be facing a maximum of 237 days behind bars.

"Because of jail overcrowding in Los Angeles though she would only serve 25 percemt of that time. The City Attorney will ask the judge to max Lindsay out and send her to jail," the source added.


It seems Lindsay always looks for the easy way out when she is backed into a corner. As for rehab, it is obvious that doesn't provide too much of a help for Lindsay. What do you think?

Michael Lohan On Lindsay's Arrest

According to Michael Lohan, Lindsay Lohan's father, Lindsay's latest arrest is the result of being "in a dark place."  





"Both (Dina) and Lindsay are in a dark place," Michael revealed of his ex-wife and daughter.

"I told you exactly what would happen and you know I was trying to get Dina on board with me for a long time, but especially the last two weeks," Lohan was quoted as saying.


Michael Lohan spoke shortly after news broke of Lindsay's arrest in New York.

Michael claimed that Dina doesn't cooperate with him in getting Lindsay help and added if Dina had been on board with his plan: "this wouldn't have happened!

"Lindsay is acting out in numerous ways because she needs us and internally she's hurt and angry! Again, it's all on Dina and I wish to God she would stop and resolve things with us to do the same for our children," Lohan continued.


It has to be mentioned that earlier Thursday morning, Michael sent out a series of tweets, writing: "This is for all parents who go or went thru the same! Please don't make the mistakes!


"Do you see what I mean when our children don't have both parents there for them and on the same page! I have tried and tried but takes two!" Lohan wrote.

"I have been trying for years and especially over the past two weeks but my pleas have gone unheard children need both parents, not alienation,"
Lohan added.

Lindsay Lohan Arrested For Assault

According to law enforcement sources, Lindsay Lohan was arrested at 4 AM Thursday in New York City for allegedly punching a woman at a New York City nightclub.







Sources claim Lohan was at Club Avenue when she got into some sort of argument with a female patron and it turned out physical.  Later cops came and busted Lindsay for allegedly assaulting her.


Law enforcement reveal that prior to the fight words were exchanged between Lindsay and the woman as they sat in separate booths near each other.  Lindsay said something like: "Give me my space."  Some time passed and then, for some reason, Lindsay allegedly hit the girl in the left side of her face.

By the time cops arrived Lindsay had left the club and was a passenger in a car that was leaving the area.  Cops intercepted the car and made the arrest.


While Lohan was in cuffs, she kept repeating: "Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me?"



It has to be noted that Lohan was booked for 3rd degree misdemeanor assault, given a desk appearance ticket (meaning she must appear in court in the near future) and released several hours after she was taken into custody.  Law enforcement claims she was "visibly tired" at the station.


Investigators went back to the club searching security footage of the alleged altercation.





Unfortunately, this isn't Lindsay's only legal problem.  Lohan is about to be charged with lying to cops in June after her car accident on Pacific Coast Highway.  She told them she was a passenger in the Porsche when actually she was driving.

If Lindsay is formally charged with the latest crime, it could trigger yet another probation violation.

His outfit with the big red "S", that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears - the glasses, the business suit - that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak…he's unsure of himself…he's a coward.

66. I hope to give you at least 15 more years of movies. I'm not going to be this old guy that keeps cranking them out.

67. I've had people write that I've seen too many movies. In what other art form would being an expert be considered a negative? If I were a poet, would I be criticized for knowing too much about Sappho? Or Aristotle?

68. I'm not James Cameron and I could never think like that - I don't think he could think like me either - but if I could go into a time machine and think like that and be able to do what he could do, that would be great. (on Avatar)

69. Watch the movie closely, and you'll see how personal it is. Here's a film in which cinema brings down the Nazi regime, metaphorically and literally. What could possibly be better than that?

74. To me, torture would be watching sports on television. (Playboy interview, November issue of 1994)





75. But can I tell the genuine-article Italian from the poseur Italian? No. To me they all seem like poseurs. (Playboy interview, November issue of 1994)

76. It's an artistic calling. It's a religion. You shouldn't be doing it as just a day job, to pay for your pool or pay for your house in Barbados. You should do it when it's special, when you'd die for the movie, when the movie is your baby.
