80s Pop Star El Debarge Arrested for Possession of Controlled Substance

Eighties pop singer El Debarge was arrested earlier this month for possession of a controlled substance, and is currently in jail without bail thanks in part to two other warrents for his arrest.

El Debarge, whose real life moniker is Patrick Eldra Debarge, was arrested last year as well on multiple charges including vandalism, drugs and domestic violence.

He will be back in court tomorrow.  We’ll just see where this leads.

Follow Up To Ryan O’Neal and Son’s Meth Bust

Last month I reported that Actor Ryan O’Neal and his son Redmond had been arrested for drug possession of Methamphetamine.  Now, both men have been officially charged with felony possession of methamphetamines.  In addition, Redmond was charged with two misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and one misdemeanor count of illegal possession of pepper spray.  Redmond is already on probation for a heroin and crystal meth arrest earlier in the year, so this will probably not go well. That is, unless they have an awesome criminal law attorney who can defend them and work to get these very serious charges reduced.

Both men are scheduled for arraignment on November 13th.

Ryan O’Neal and Son Arrested and Charged with Methamphetamine Possession

Mugshots of Ryan O'Neal and his son Redmond

During a routine probation search of the home of actor Ryan O’Neal, who recently starred in TV series Bones, was charged for drug possession after a vial of Methamphetamine was allegedly found in his bedroom.

But the real stinger is that O’Neal’s son Redmond was also found holding a vial of meth on his person.

Both Ryan and Redmond were arrested and now being held on $10,000 bail.  Nothing says father/son bonding like a good upper. Now that’s family values you can believe in!

Andy Dick, one of the more psychotic and attention-pandering-celebs out there today, will not be charged with a sexual assault in an allegation that he pulled a seventeen-year old’s top down outside the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Murrieta CA last month. However, the former star of News Radio and The Andy Dick Show still faces multiple charges from that evening. Among them include:

  • battery
  • unlawful possession of a controlled substance
  • public intoxication
  • possession of less than one ounce of marijuana

Among the sordid details of his arrest include this nugget from officer’s report “… Dick was escorted back to the holding area … At one point I noticed Dick sat up from the floor and his pants were soaked from the waist area to the ankles. Dick has just urinated on himself.”

What a Dick.

No word on how the Hollywood has-been (was he ever “in” to begin with?) will plead.

Rapper Yung Berg Arrested in NYC on Weapon and Drug Charges

22-year old rapper Yung Berg (who previously went by the name Ice Berg, and whose very ungangsta real name is Christian Ward) was arrested in New York City over the weekend and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana and menacing.

After a limo driver had a dispute with Berg and four of his buddies, he reported a complaint to the police. When police investigated, they found Berg and slapped him and his friends with the charges.  It is unknown at this time if he has hired a New York City drug crimes lawyer for defense.

Yung Berg’s album “Look What You Made Me Do” hits shelves tomorrow, so these charges will probably do nothing but improve sales.

Barenaked Ladies singer Steven Page was arrested on July 11th for cocaine possession.  Cops saw a suspicious vehicle outside an apartment in New York City, and while they investigated observed a man and a woman inside an apartment with a powder substance and an “unknown white capsule”.  A field test came back positive as cocaine.

Page, and the woman Stephanie Ford, were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, while Ford was also charged with possession of pot.

Both were released on a $10,000 bail.

The band has since pulled out of playing at the Disney Music Block Party, while their manager has said through the band’s website that the “members of the band completely support Steven Page, but we don’t want to put Disney in an awkward position before issues involving Steven’s arrest are resolved.”
