Laguna Beach’s Jason Wahler arrested for the second time this month

Following his post-The Hills break-up with Lauren, former Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler has been arrested twice in the past month.

On Friday, he was arrested for misdemeanor battery after being “involved in an altercation with a Department of Transportation officer and a tow truck driver,” according to Us Weekly. The woman he was with was also arrested, and she is, according to the magazine, “a Porn Model.”

Earlier, on Sept. 1, Jason was arrested and “charged with three counts of bribery, criminal possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct,” according to E! Online’s Kristin.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about both arrests is that the media cares so little; with the exception of the Us Weekly blog item, only celebrity gossip blogs have given this any play. If you can’t even get attention by being arrested, you know your reality TV career is over.
