Remember the show “Trading Spaces”? With the switching houses and the uglification and lowering of your friends’ and neighbours’ property values? Well anyway, Doug Wilson, one of the designers from that show, was arrested last night for DUI in Illinois. From E! Online:
According to a spokeswoman for the Decatur County Jail, Wilson was pulled over at approximately 1 a.m. after he failed to yield to a police vehicle, which had its lights and sirens wailing.
The cops took the interior designer into custody and charged him with all sorts of infractions: aggravated DUI, driving on a suspended license, failing to yield the right-of-way to an emergency vehicle and unlawful transportation of alcohol. He was booked into Decatur County Jail and released on $1,000 bond a few hours later.
I didn’t really like that lame “Trading Spaces” show and I barely remember who this dude even is, but this story is funny/not funny because seriously — what is with all these idiot celebrities tooling around wasted the week of New Year’s? Who does that? There are cops everywhere the week of New Year’s! It’s the worst time of year to engage in illegal vehicular shenanigans! Besides, famous people should have plenty of money to hire drivers every damn day of their lives, so I don’t understand why they’re always getting arrested for DUI. I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I suspect it may have something to do with the fact that 98% of celebrities are functionally retarded.
