Subduing the Party Monster

I have no idea whether they checked all of Macaulay Culkin's major crevices when they booked him into the Oklahoma County Jail yesterday on charges of possession of what the government persists in calling "substances," including six-tenths of an ounce of marijuana. On the other hand, they did let him go once he'd posted $4000 bond.

One thing bothers me: at 4 pm, the time of the initial bust, 70 mph on I-44 would normally put one at the back of the traffic pack — even at 5 pm, traffic is often moving at close to 75 mph — so I have to assume that the improper lane change was what drew the attention of the gendarmes.

Which, for that stretch of 44, surely must be a first.

Or perhaps the out of state tag was the deciding factor. The media sure jumped on it. Front page on the paper today!

There are always out-of-state tags swooping down I-44, which makes me wonder if they didn't zero in on Culkin because he was in a rental, some of which (Enterprise's, for instance) are easily identifiable as such.

It's obvious to me. Over-the-hill child star profiling!

Regarding dopers, what happened to that obnoxious character who used to do the Dell commercials?
