On a night I am sure he hadn’t predicted, actor Jason London was arrested on assault charges and disorderly conduct after a bar fight in Arizona on Tuesday. Upon arriving on the scene police officials called paramedics due to the lacerations on London’s face.
According to the police report obtained by E! News, London, displayed “extreme signs of alcohol impairment,” and started cursing at the paramedics.
Officer D. Ford states in the report that London tried to shove another officer, who then kneed the actor’s outer right thigh to get him to sit down. After London had ultimately refused medical treatment, Ford says that he tried to question the actor, to which he replied, “F–k you! You won’t do s–t for me, you f–king hillbilly!”
Once in the back seat of the cop car London told the officer, “it smells like s**t in your car and your breath smells like diarrhea.” According to the police report, Jason then leaned to the left and crapped in his pants. Jason then said, “I told you I’m happy as s**t,” this according to the report.
The 40-year-old actor took to Twitter to share his side of the story:
“I would never say or do the crap they are reporting,” he said in the message on Tuesday. “Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see. Some guy thought I was hitting on his girl and had me jumped. My wife was in the next room, had no idea what even happened. I hate Arizona, he Tweeted.
London is married to actress Sofia Karstens.
Purportedly, the police officer called Sofia to inform her of her husband’s arrest, to which she replied, “I know he’s an a**hole when he drinks,” and insisted that he would never assault anyone on purpose.
There goes his alibi. [shruggs]
Instead of apologizing, London punched the person, the report from Scottsdale police said. He was escorted out by bouncers and during that time he hit them, leading the security guards to “defend themselves” against London, it added.
A 26-year-old Martini Ranch bouncer, whose name was not released, was listed by police as a victim in the incident. London was charged with assault with intent to injure and disorderly conduct, the report said.”London showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment,” one of the responding officers wrote in the report.
London’s reps released a statement today, Wednesday, January 30th claiming that club bouncers used “excessive force” during the incident:
“Bars are institutions where there are drunk people who are sometimes inappropriate and even violent. It is the bouncers’ job to remove the problem and if it is necessary, to use force in order to secure the safety of the establishment and patrons. It is not acceptable to retaliate with brutality once that has been accomplished.”
The cause of the incident is still unclear per London’s reps:
“In the midst of having a good time, Jason does remember one of the guys saying something about Jason looking at his friend’s girl wrong and grabbing and dragging him. The next thing Jason remembers was coming to with the cops arresting him,” the statement reads.
