No, we're not just recycling old stories because we're bored. Like Britney Spears checking in and out of rehab, this one keeps on repeating itself.
Our counterparts at TMZ have learned that former Laguna Beach bad boy Jason Wahler was arrested over the weekend - the fourth time in nine months that the punk has been taken into custody.
Wahler, who also went on to star on the first season of The Hills, was nabbed by the Seattle Police Department just after 2:00 AM for criminal trespassing and assault.
Police sources say Jason Wahler was booked into a King County jail early Sunday morning and was released on bail nine hours later.
In a sick rant that would make even Mel Gibson or Michael Richards cringe, Wahler allegedly spewed a barrage of racist and offensive slurs during his arrest, allegedly calling a police officer a "nig**r, fag**t, and poor f**k."
According to TMZ, police were dispatched to Seattle's Waterfront Marriot to respond to a fight involving Jason Wahler.
Security found Wahler wrestling on the lobby floor with an unidentified man. The police report says Wahler used his right fist to punch the unidentified man in the mouth. Wahler then ran from the hotel, only to return a short time later, when he was taken into custody.
On March 6, Wahler was sentenced to 60 days in an L.A. County Jail, and must turn himself in sometime before May 4 for that offense, in which he roughed up (and made racial slurs at) a tow truck driver.
Later this month, he's due in court in North Carolina to answer to charges of resisting arrest from a public officer during an underage drinking sweep.
He was also busted last August on cocaine possession and other charges in N.Y. City late last year. Needless to say, he's not in Laguna Beach anymore. Jackass!
Wahler's legal troubles now extend to four states - New York, California, North Carolina, and now Washington. It's an impressive run for an impressive guy. Just not the Andy Baldwin kind of impressive.
Jessica Smith, the average-looking homebody who Wahler hooked up with on Laguna Beach, apparently tried to follow in his footsteps two weeks ago, getting charged with DUI after being arrested and locked up for three days.
