Jason London Arrested After Bar Fight; Allegedly Poops in Cop Car
(NEW YORK) — The you-know-what hit the fan after actor Jason London allegedly was involved in a fight at an Arizona bar last weekend.
Police say that London, whose major credit is the 1993 film Dazed and Confused, was at Martini Ranch in Scottsdale early Sunday when he sneezed on a man, who asked for an apology. Instead, London allegedly punched the man.
The 40-year-old actor was escorted out of the bar, and he fought some more with a couple of people. Police say he then cursed at and became aggressive with paramedics and officers who’d arrived to the scene.
A police report on the incident says London “showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment.”
After he was arrested and placed in a police car, London reportedly continued to use profanity, at one point allegedly saying, “Guess what, f****t? I f***ing love this! I f***ing own you guys so hard. I’m rich and I’m a mother f***ing famous actor! F***ing look me up, b****!”
An officer says London subsequently defecated in his pants and said, “I told you that I’m happy as s***!”
London, who recently has appeared in episodes of ABC’s Scandal and TNT’s Dallas, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
On Tuesday, London denied the allegations on Twitter, writing that the report “is a total f***ing lie. I got jumped by three 250-pound bouncers. They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes….I have a right orbital fracture and sinus fracture. The truth will win.”
His mug shot shows the actor with cuts and a black eye.
London is the twin brother of Party of Five actor Jeremy London, who’s had his own share of personal problems in recent years. In 2012, Jeremy was charged with domestic battery in connection with an incident involving his estranged wife. He eventually pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of getting into an unlawful fight in public.
