The fan who set up a GoFundMe.com account in hopes of raising more than $200,000 to help pay for Suge Knight’s bail bonds fee raised exactly $0 before the campaign was removed from the website.
The person who started the effort wrote that Knight, who has been charged with murder, had been arrested for what he calls “a simple misunderstanding;” if the full amount couldn’t be raised, he wrote, the money that did come in would be put on his books.
Backlash over the campaign was immediate.
One person commented that Read more »
George Clooney bailed out of a Washington D.C. jail for $100. He and his father, Nick, were arrested during a protest regarding a crisis-situation in Sudan. The pair, along with 13 others, were hauled away from the Sudanese embassy by members of the U.S. Secret Service. U.S. Rep. Jim Morgan (D-VA) and NAACP President Ben Jealous were also among those arrested.
A number of reporters asked Clooney what it felt like to be behind bars. Clooney told The Hollywood Gossip that the intent of the protest was to bring attention to an ongoing emergency, and that although there have been some great strides, a clock s still ticking and there is “an awful lot that is still going on”.
The 50 year-old-actor admitted that when he was permitted the opportunity to make a phone call, he Read more »
Like you, we’ve followed Lindsey Lohan from child star to Lynwood Jail and back again. The new member of the Gotti movie cast could be facing some serious trouble when she heads back to court today, according to E!.
Lohan will be going before a judge for both a preliminary hearing on her theft case and a probation-revocation hearing to determine whether she’s been in enough trouble to be sent back to Lynwood jail, Los Angeles County’s women’s jail, immediately.
Here’s a breakdown of what the star is in for today:

On Wednesday, actor and director Mel Gibson, reportedly made a plea deal with prosecutors, which involves no jail time, for the domestic charges he was arrested on last year. According to the L.A. County DA’s office, on Friday, Mel Gibson will go before the court and plead no contest to a smaller misdemeanor battery charge in regards to his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.
An anonymous source who is directly engaged with the case revealed to the Associate Press that Gibson would be able to undergo counseling instead of serving time in jail. As bail bondsmen, this is consistent with first time domestic violence charges received by a defendant in Los Angeles County. In other words, it does not appear that Gibson is getting any special treatment.
According to Blair Berk, Gibson’s attorney, Read more »

Suge Knight, CEO of Death Row Records, was said to have been arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department in connection with the 1996 Tupac Shakur (2Pac) murder. However, in regards to the LAPD, they have confirmed that this is the biggest hoax to emerge in 2010 circulating the murder.

HOLLYWOOD — 2010 has seen its share of celebrity, sports star and political figure arrests. So let’s go back a bit, (a count down if you will), to see how those on our list of 10 fared in the legal-go-round battle with… the jail turnstile.
(We’ve included several previously blogged about here on KeepBailing.com However, this is not an exhaustive list.)
#10 – Chris Klein
Chris Klein, best known for his role in American Pie, was arrested for driving under the influence on June 16th just after 3:15 AM on an alleged DUI. He was driving on the 101 Freeway, with his dog. He was later bailed out of the Van Nuys Jail. It’s reported his blood alcohol level was just about three times the legal limit in California, which is .08 percent. Rovers should never let their owners drive drunk!
# 9 – Russel Brand
Our newly married, Mr. Katy Perry was arrested for misdemeanor battery for an alleged scuffle at LAX with some over zealous Papparazzi. The couple was passing through the security checks when an attempt was made to photograph Katy’s skirt. We’re happy to report that Mr. Brand definitely made it to the Greek on time.
# 8 – Joey Porter
The Arizona Cardinals star Linebacker ended up in the Bakersfield Jail, arrested on misdemeanor DUI. He allegedly resisted arrest and battered a peace officer. Reportedly, it all happened outside of a Taco Bell at when Porter was asked for his license by a CHP officer. He refused and rolled up the window. He then made the unfortunate mistake of ‘slapping’ the officer’s hand. Ouch!
# 7 – Senator Roy Ashburn
State Sen. Roy Ashburn was pulled over by CHP officers after they noticed him driving erratically at the wheel of a state Senate-issued Chevy Tahoe. When stopped, officers noticed symptoms of alcohol intoxication. He was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors. One for driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of .08% and DUI.
# 6 – Redmond O’Neal
Redmond O’Neal, who happens to be the son of the late Charlie’s Angels actress Farrah Fawcett and actor Ryan O’Neal, was remanded back to jail after violating his probation for a series of drug offenses. O’Neal was sentenced to a 30-day, in-custody drug-treatment program thanks to his inability to stay clean.
#5 – Jason Wahler
The former realty star of “The Hills” was reportedly arrested a sixth time for drunk driving by the Newport Beach Police Department. Wahler was stopped and handcuffed by police around 11:00 p.m. on March 20, 2010, but he was released without bail on his own recognizance (“O.R.”) hours later.
#4 – Randy and Evie Quaid
The Quaids have been in and out of the news headlines in the past year or more – first for allegedly defrauding a Santa Barbara Hotel, then not showing up for their court dates. In the world of jails, judges and laws, if you’re asked by a judge to show up to court you’d better go, or there will be no ‘get out of jail free’ cards. Seems like they had to play the game over and over again.
#3 – David Cassidy
“Come on, get happy?” David was arrested on a DUI charge in Florida in November. The Partridge Family cast royalty was in his Mercedes Benz when he was stopped for weaving in and out of traffic, almost causing an accident. Oops, police also found a half empty bottle of bourbon in the car. Maybe he was rehearsing for a new role?
#2 – Paris Hilton
Paris, oh Paris. Arrested again in South Africa for allegedly smoking pot at the World Cup Match. Later, she was arrested in Las Vegas for cocaine possession. For a girl who seems to have it all, the world just doesn’t seem to be enough.
And the #1 Read more »
The L.A. Sheriff’s deputy, responsible for the 2006 arrest of Mel Gibson for drunk driving, is suing his department in claims that he’s been ostracized and dismissed for promotions by the department since the arrest took place.
The lawsuit details repercussions for Deputy James Mee’s emotional distress, mental suffering as well as damages for the loss of income, medical bills, and benefits. Mee claims his superiors forced him to remove any reference to anti-semitic slurs by Mr. Gibson. Furthermore, the racial comments and slurs appeared to have been leaked on a celebrity website.
Mee declares that Read more »
BEVERLY HILLS — In a repeat performance to court this time, Lindsay Lohan expressed a look of “shock and awe” when Judge Marsha N. Revel handed the screen queen a mandatory 90 day jail term for violating her probation. Her jail time will be spent at the Century Regional Detention Facility (CRDF), Los Angeles County’s Women’s Jail, also know as the Lynwood Jail.
Lohan will have some serious thinking time to do for failing to attend her weekly alcohol education classes, ordered by the Los Angeles Court Judge for previous drunk driving charges in 2007. The Judge issued Lindsay three 30-day sentences which include 90-days in a locked-down drug rehab facility. The sentence was apparently harsher than prosecutors thought would be handed down.
Judge Revel included Read more »

How many celebrity DUIs does it take to make an American pie? Well Chris Klein, best known for his “apple cheeked” role in American Pie, is the latest report of celebs arrested for driving under the influence. I know it’s not just the celebrities, but the repeated incidents of famous people drinking and driving seems to be a sad commentary on the publics attitude about this very dangerous activity.
Klein was arrested on June 16th just after 3:15 AM on an alleged DUI. He was driving on the 101 Freeway with his dog. He was later bailed out of the Van Nuys Jail. It’s reported his blood alcohol level was just about 3 times legal limit in California, which is .08 percent.
If found guilty this time, Chris could be facing a minimum of four days behind bars. He was also arrested in 2004, where he was charged with two counts of DUI. He pleaded guilty and was fined $1,800 and performed community service.
