An Ontario man is facing a felony charge in Chicago for allegedly making up a story about being robbed of tickets to the final Oprah show tapings, reports CTV.
44-year-old Robert Spearing told police he was beaten and robbed of the tickets on Tuesday by two men. However, the police said he later admitted to making up the story to avoid telling his wife they had travelled to Chicago without tickets.
Police allege Spearing cut his own forehead with a rock and scraped his hands on the sidewalk to mimic injuries.
Spearing was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report and was ordered held pending a hearing next week.
This is so ridiculous. I mean, really? You’d cut yourself with a rock to avoid telling your wife you didn’t get Oprah tickets? Jesus, celebrities definitely bring out the crazy in people. I’m sure your wife would have forgave you. Would she be a little pissed? Yes. It’s Oprah’s final show. But a mad wife is better then a crime charge. Good job.
According to TMZ, Kamofie and Co., the store Lohan stole a necklace from, is auctioning off the necklace for charity.
Lohan, who was reported to have stolen the $2,500 necklace back in January, is being charged with felony grand theft by the L.A. County District Attorney. According to TMZ, Lohan claims that the necklace was a loan, and a video has recently surfaced showing Lohan wearing the necklace around the store for at least 45 minutes, and even talking to the store owner, before leaving.
“We have decided to sell the diamond necklace through auction, and give the proceeds to charity,” said a representative from Kamofie and Co. “We invite the public to make suggestions as to the most appropriate charity to receive the benefit of the sale’s proceeds.”
Good luck raising more than $10! If Lindsay didn’t even have $2500 to spare on it, what makes them think anyone else will?
Now, I know your money is burning a hole in your pockets after hearing this, but unfortunately you’re going to have to keep it in your wallet for a little while longer! According to the rep, the auction won’t take place until after the case is resolved, “by plea bargain, or trial or some other means.” Until then, the L.A. County District Attorney is holding the necklace as evidence.
Do they really think that Lindsay’s necklace will be able to top Justin Bieber’s hair selling for $40,668? The sad thing is, it just might!
Just weeks after Lindsay Lohan completed her court-ordered rehab stay for a DUI case, she has allegedly stole a $2,500 necklace from Kamofie and Company, a jewelry store in Venice, California on January 22.
Lohan claims that she thought she was given permission to borrow the jewelry. Following the incident Lohan was given $40,000 bail for the theft charge and allegedly violating her probation in the DUI case. People.com reports that Lohan pleaded not guilty to the felony charge in court yesterday. No rulings have been revealed but the judge on the case was extremely stern with Lohan. Lohan is reportedly striving for a plea bargain. The next hearing isn’t until February 23.
In other news, TMZ.com reports that Lohan already had a similar mishap occur at the jewelry store just four days before the necklace incident. Lohan reportedly forgot to remove one of the earrings she was trying on at the store and attempted to walk out. The store clerk stopped Lohan and let her know she was still wearing the other earring. Apparently Lohan laughed it off and went on her way.
Lohan has been up to her ears in trouble this past year. Would she go out of her way to cause more trouble for herself and steal a $2,500 necklace? It seems bizarre.
