Gossip Singer Beth Ditto Arrested in Portland
Gossip singer Beth Ditto was a bad girl this weekend. She was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in Portland, Oregon, after misbehaving while bar hopping on Friday, March 15.
Ditto was arrested at 12:56AM and booked at 1:42AM, in the wee hours of Saturday morning, March 16, after throwing a fit because she was denied service at Portland's Bungalo Bar, the NME reports. Apparently, she was already incredibly intoxicated when she arrived at that establishment, so they refused to further serve her. She was not exactly pleased about being denied, according to the British mag, and was tossed.
As per a witness, Ditto stormed out into the street, kicked off her shoes, threw her purse and was screaming "Obama! Obama!" We're not sure what the president had to do with her being denied drinks, but perhaps he was weighing on her mind for some other reason.
Her presidential chant caught the attention of police, who promptly arrested the singer. A Reddit user just so happened to be tossing a few back at the same bar and offered the following account of the happenings:
By 1:30 Beth was completely blackout drunk challenging people to fights. My friends and I headed over to the Bungalow from the Alibi only to be met with Beth's belligerent a--hole posse. We got our drinks and went out to the back, only to hear her and her friends breaking s--.
This witness said that the bartender called the cops because Ditto had booted him where the sun don't shine. Ouch! Ditto was taken to a Portland police station and later released on her own recognizance. A court date is TBD, and she could see six months in jail. See her booking details here.
