In Today's Celeb Police Blotter: January Jones, Chace Crawford
Mad Men's January Jones has had a rough week. First it was her "walk of shame" tabloid pic, taken earlier in the week, and then a rather eventful car accident last night.
For those unfamiliar with the term "walk of shame" it generally refers to being caught in the same outfit your wore the night before, typically leaving some hook-up's house, or hotel.
In this case, January was pictured getting out of a cab in front of her home the next morning after hosting World Oceans Day for GQ Magazine on Tuesday night. Jones was snapped by photogs Wednesday morning at 10:30am in the same stylish cocktail dress. Ooooh...scandalous!
As if that wasn't shocking enough, last night, January was involved in a 4-car accident near her home after she hit 3 parked cars. Jones reportedly left the scene after handing her license to a witness, then, went home, called the police, returned to the scene 45 minutes later with different clothes and chewing gum. The last part is significant because there's some speculation she might have been trying to avoid questions about possible drinking and driving.
Jones had left a party at a hotel where she'd been watching the Lakers-Celtics game just prior to the accident. It gets convoluted from there, with celeb chef Bobby Flay making an appearance and witnesses saying she had alcohol on her breath. Jones was not issued a field sobriety test and police did not investigate any drinking driving issues further. My oh my, what a week for Ms. Jones.
Next up is Gossip Girl's pretty boy Chace Crawford and his arrest last Friday for possession of pot. Crawford was arrested outside of Ringo's Pub in Plano, Texas last week for possession of an un-smoked joint.
Today TMZ is reporting that the D.A.'s office is charging Chace with possession, a misdemeanor which carries a maximum of 6 months in jail. It's unlikely Chace will actually see any jail time, but it certainly does taint his image some. Besides, a guy like Chace wouldn't last in jail for two seconds. He's simply too pretty!
So the moral of these two tales is, be smart, don't
get caught break(ing) the law.
