Jason Wahler arrested for the fourth time; threatened cops with racial, homophobic slurs

Laguna Beach‘s Jason Wahler was arrested for the fourth time in less than a year this weekend, and this time, he used racial and homophobic slurs against the police officer who arrested him.

He was arrested in Seattle “for criminal trespassing and assault” and “was booked into a King County jail early Sunday morning and was released on bail nine hours later,” TMZ reports. Police responded to the Waterfront Marriott after “[h]otel security found Wahler wrestling on the lobby floor with an unidentified man” and “used his right fist to punch one of the security guards in the mouth,” TMZ says.

When he was taken into custody, he hurled slurs and threats at the cops. Here’s the relevant part of the Seattle Police Department’s incident report [PDF]:

S/WHALER was highly agitated and hostile. He repeatedly called me “a nigger”, “a faggot” and “a poor fuck”. S/WHALER stated he was rich and would have my ass. S/WHALER made vague threats to assault officers. S/WHALER said to me, “Come down to LA County and get your ass kicked!” During the entire contact S/WHALER remained belligerent and hostile.”

As TMZ notes, Jason’s “legal troubles now extend to four states including New York, California, North Carolina, and now Washington.” He has to serve 60 days in Los Angeles County jail starting in the next few weeks, and was most recently arrested in North Carolina.
