You may not have heard of Mickey Rourke if you are under the age of 35, but who doesn't love celebrity mug shots ... and when a guy gets busted for DUI while riding a vespa, well, that kind of humor can bridge a generation gap.
The Palm Beach Post reports that earlier this week, a guy from a celebrity photo agency was trolling South Beach looking for Jennifer Lopez, who was in town for a concert, when he bumped into Rourke and some woman around 2:00 a.m.
"They came back out [of a club] two hours later and then crossed Washington Avenue to go to his scooter," the celebrity picture-taker said.
Mickey Rourke's response: "No, no, dude... I'm all right."
According to the police report, Mickey Rourke asked the cop, "What the f**k did I do?!" Cops say the alleged actor's face was flushed, his eyes were bloodshot and watery and his speech was slurred. "I'm not drunk, I didn't even drink that much," Rourke said, according to the report. Sure thing.
He was booked into the Miami-Dade Pre-trial Detention Center around 9:30 a.m. and was held on $1,000 bond. Man, you think you've seen it all.
What's next? Someone getting arrested for DUI while driving a golf cart? Oh, wait... sorry, Bill Murray. That was a low blow. Funny, though, right?
Well, not as funny as this alternate meaning of riding the vespa. Maybe Mickey Rourke should give this a try instead the next time he's drunk.
