Thomas Jane Busted For DUI!

And just who, pray tell, is Thomas Jane, you ask? Thomas Jane (née Thomas Elliot) is the semi-sexy actor who starred in the most recent movie adaptation of The Punisher comic books and is married to Medium star Patricia Arquette. TMZ reports that Mr. Jane was nabbed this morning on suspicion that he was driving while under the influence of alcohol:

TMZ has learned "The Punisher" star Thomas Jane was busted early this morning for DUI. Jane, whose real name is Thomas Elliot, was nabbed in Kern County, Calif. by CHP officers. He has been charged with DUI and driving with a blood alcohol level above .08% -- both misdemeanors. CHP tells TMZ Jane was stopped in a late-model Maserati for driving at "an extremely high rate of speed" on I-5. We're told he failed several field sobriety tests, including a breathalyzer. Cops also say he was also driving with a suspended license. A cooperative Jane was taken to the pokey and he's already out. His arraignment is set for April 9th.

Boo. Another day, another celeb DUI. It is such a sad comment on the times when this sort of news isn't even shocking anymore ... these days, it's basically a matter of "who is it now?" Folks, don't drink and drive ... no matter what the celebs may think, it's deffo not cool to risk the live of others just because you don't know how to call a cab. [Source]
