Busted Eyed Pea

Black Eyed Peas member Taboo (the artist I formerly only knew as "one of the other guys" in BEP) was arrested last night for driving under the influence of alcohol after he crashed his car outside of LA ... unlike yesterday's Laguna Beach-related arrest for drunk driving, tho, there were no injuries in this incident:

Taboo, a member of the hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas, was arrested on DUI charges last night after he crashed his car about 20 miles east of Los Angeles. According to police, Taboo aka Jaime Luis Gomez, was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, possession of a prescribed medication without a prescription, and driving under the influence. Taboo was booked at the Los Angeles County Sheriff Industry Station's jail at 1:51 PM and released a few hours later on $5,000 bail.

Now, is anyone really surprised that man that goes by the name "Taboo" was caught with weed? And enough already with all the DUIs ... if this becomes the new celebrity trend (like small dogs and big purses) then I'm never gonna leave my house. [Source]
