Three nights ago on The Apprentice, fledgling corporate powerhouse Chris informed us that he was putting the kibotch on his famed temper. We all knew it wouldn’t last very long, and thankfully, a well-timed arrest early this morning reestablished his reputation as reality TV’s reigning hothead maniac. Yes, Chris finally landed behind bars in Tampa Bay today after an altercation at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Apparently he refused to pay a bar cover, and, you guessed it, he became loud, irritable, and scary.
According to Tampa Bay Online, Chris refused to cough up a $20 cover because he had just spent $2,000 on his room. That, and he had left his wallet at Best Buy again. Anyway, Chris predictably created chaos when his pseudo-celebrity stature was denied entrance to this pricey club, and before long, the cops arrived to diffuse the scene. However, taming the beast is no easy task. The police allegedly asked Chris to calm down many times, but he continued to yell and curse, ultimately resulting in a nifty “disorderly conduct” arrest. Rumor has it Chris tried to reason with a cop by shouting, “SIR, I AM NOT BEING UNREASONABLE! I AM JUST AGGRESSIVE AND FULL OF ENERGY! I AM NOT ANGRY! ARGH!!!!” Chris then bashed the cop’s head into a nearby slot machine and spat on his face. No word on whether or not a taser was implemented.
And so ended a perfectly fun weekend celebrating the birthday of fellow Apprentice star John, who we all remember for his chauvinist outlook and lame wallet chain. He’s quoted in Tampa Bay Online as saying “It’s so ludicrous. The hotel handled the situation very poorly from top to bottom.” He then added, “Probably some dumb broad in charge.”
Presently, Chris is out and about, having posted a $250 bail earlier today. So women and children of Tampa Bay, we advice you to get inside and lock the front door. If you see a short, round, screaming man who doesn’t appear to be homeless, be sure to alert the proper authorities: TVgasm.
Mugshot after the jump…
Hey Lorlene. Bring the pickup ’round front. Poppa’s done got himself in jail again. Dang.
