File this one under Stupid Criminals, Dumb Blondes, or More Proof There’s Crazy Juice In Louisiana’s Water Supply. Miss Louisiana Teen USA Lindsey Evans reportedly skipped out on a restaurant bill this past weekend, and has consequently been stripped of her title. Her pageant is part of Donald Trump’s Miss USA organization, which has seen it’s share of scandalous title holders. Maybe it’s because there’s no talent competition! Unlike the Miss America organization, these girls are basically selected on hotness.
Lindsey was out with a group of friends eating at a Shreveport restaurant, and ran up a bill worth a whopping $46.07. The girls decided to “dine and dash”, and didn’t pay the bill. Let’s see…assuming a “group of friends” means at least 2 other people, that would add up to $15.35 each. Oh, that DEFINITELY was worth it.
Lindsey brilliantly left her purse there, and went back to get it. The waiter had already gone through it to see who skipped the tab. The police were waiting for Lindsey when she returned. The cops ALSO found marijuana in her purse. Needless to say, 18-year-old Lindsey has been â€œrelieved of her duties as Miss Louisiana Teen USA 2008 effective immediately,â€ and was arrested. No juvie for you, Lindsey. Just one of the perks of being an adult.
Lindsey had a whopping 10 days left of her reign, and was to hand over her crown next weekend. She’s already been replaced on the pageant website with BRUNETTE Michelle Berthelot, Miss Louisiana USA, who will crown the NEW Miss Louisiana Teen USA Halloween weekend. Lindsey will be stuck trying to explain her crimes on future college and job applications.
Early Sunday morning, (approximately 3:15 am) country singer Brad Paisley’s private jet was met with uniformed officers when it landed at Nashville International Airport. Officers immediately handcuffed Brad as soon as he got off the plane. The policemen informed Brad they had a warrant for his arrest for involvement in “some serious crimes.” Paisley was heard saying:
“You’ve gotta be kidding me! I’ve never done anything wrong in my life!”
Paisley was cooperative with the officers, and was taken to the back of an unmarked police car. He was then given further explanation of his arrest.
“We have a Mrs. Jewel Murray who has filed several charges against you in the state of Tennessee for excessive lewd acts of noodling,” explained the officer, as Paisley broke into a fit of laugher, realizing this was all a joke. “Noodling? On the guitar?” Paisley asked the officers. “You know what, I am guilty.”
Seems Brad Paisley, country music’s Ashton Kutcher, finally got what he deserved. He’d had a long, prank-filled tour with Jewel and Chuck Wicks. Brad Paisley ran a video introducing Kellie Pickler that featured some photos that had been Photoshoped a bit and a plastic surgeon’s take on the question whether Kellie has had some work done to a particular area of her body. The segment was called “You Be The Judge.” Jack Ingram had to get into a cage they built out of PVC pipe just as he was about to walk onstage and then wheeled him out in the cage with only his microphone and a hacksaw. He had to be freed 2 songs into the set.
Saturday night, Chuck had pranked Brad by stepping onto the stage dripping with maple syrup and covered in feathers. And during Jewel’s set, a large man dressed as a giant condom swung just feet over her head. Brad must have thought he’d kept his “King of the Pranks” title. Not quite. Here’s Jewel talking about the pranks…and what is about to come for Brad. Ha!!
In an effort to humble the “King”, Jewel and her touring crew turned the tables on Brad. Yep, early Sunday morning, when Brad and his crew arrived in Nashville they were greeted by two unmarked police cars, two retired police officers and a night sky filled with flashing blue and white lights. You can watch the footage of Brad’s arrest here! Punked!!
