The Gossip’s lead singer, Beth Ditto was arrested early Tuesday morning in Portland after she allegedly got super wasted, walked into the middle of the street, blocked traffic and started to yell.
Portland PD were called to the scene and found Ditto, real name Mary Beth Patterson, “standing in the middle of the street with her arms extended from her sides like an airplane” according to Portland PD spokesman, Sgt. Pete Simpson.
A source told the Willamette Week, a bartender at the Bungalo Bar cut the singer off because she was completely drunk. Not feeling the fact that she was cut off, Ditto went outside, threw her shoes and purse and started to shout, “Obama! Obama!”
She was taken into custody after ignoring requests by officers who were trying to bring the singer off the street where she was blocking four cars. That’s where all the nuttiness ends because she was taken into custody without any incident and was booked on one count of disorderly conduct at nearby Multnomah County jail.
But all is good, she was released a short time later. Now she can continue her one man (woman?) cheer party for the president.
Rapper 2 Chainz was arrested last night for Marijuana possession the van he was in was pulled over. the rapper and his entourage were on their was to a school when the vehicle they were in was caught going 79 in a 50 miles-per-hour zone. When the Maryland State Police pulled over the vehicle, there was an odor of weed and with probable cause, were able to search the vehicle. Inside, they found a backpack that had a grinder, a device used to grind marijuana so that it could be smoked, with remnants of weed in it.
The only person in the group to be arrested was 2Chainz and lets just say that he wasn’t too happy to be in that position. After being booked and released, the rapper went onto his Twitter to inform fans about what had just happened and what he thought about the incident. The interesting part about the story was the photo that was taken with two of the police officers(seen above). When the Maryland State Police was asked about who initiated the photo, 2Chainz or one of their officers, the spokesperson simply said: “We cannot confirm who initiated that at this time.”
