Tatum Gets Off Easy

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

Exactly one month ago, Tatum O’Neal was busted in New York City for trying to buy crack from a homeless dude and went to jail. Today she faced the Manhattan Criminal Court and the youngest Oscar winner plead guilty guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Prosecutors in turn dropped more serious charges, including drug possession. What did her slap on the wrist include? Well, the judge ordered Tatum to spend two half-days in a drug treatment program (why can’t they just make it one full day?) and pay a $95 fee. I’m not to sure what she would have received had she been convicted of drug possession, but I’m going to assume the fine and punishment are probably much stiffer. Tatum has until September 4 (when she’s due back in court) to make good on both conditions and then her case will be dismissed. Yeah, she definitely got off easy.

Crack Kills

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

This is very disturbing news. Actress Tatum O’Neal was arrested near her home in New York City for allegedly buying crack cocaine. A NY City police confirmed to People Magazine that Tatum was seen purchasing the drugs at around 7:30 p.m. Sunday night. She was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, which is a misdemeanor. The alleged drug dealer was also arrested. Tatum was arraigned and posted bail today before noon. When officers approached her, she reportedly asked them: “You know who I am, right?” She also claimed she was “researching a part – I’m doing this for a part as a junkie” and wanted to know they “could forget about this”. Tatum has had her share of drug problems in the past and went to rehab in 1986 and she claimed to be clean since then. She’s due back in court July 28.
