Laguna Beach’s Jason Wahler arrested yet again

Jason Wahler, star of Laguna Beach and The Hills, was arrested “this weekend after cops say he ‘resisted a public officer’ during a raid on underage drinkers in North Carolina,” according to TMZ, which has published his new mug shot.

Police tell TMZ that “the 20-year-old lied about his age when he was approached inside Rumors nightclub by members of the Alcohol Law Enforcement Division.”

He “was taken to Pitt County Jail early Saturday morning, where sources claim he was anything but coopertive, shouting multiple obscenities throughout the booking process. After spending just a few hours behind bars, Wahler was released on $1000 bail.”

Last summer, Jason was arrested twice, once for battery and once for possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest.

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
