Buss Busted!

Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss was arrested early Tuesday for driving under the influence of alcohol. The 74-year-old Buss was taken into custody shortly before 1 a.m. after he drove his gold Mercedes-Benz down the wrong way of a street. "Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was wrong to do it," Buss said in a statement issued by the Lakers. "It was a mistake I will not make again." A 23-year-old woman was in the vehicle with Buss when the incident occurred.

If I was geriatric escorting a young woman around L.A. I would do anything possible to make sure people knew about it. Sure a DUI is a little extreme, but when the grim reaper is closing in, you gotta get the word out fast. Hopefully for Buss, he hadn’t already popped his Viagra, because sporting wood while behind bars can only get you into trouble.
