Beth Ditto

Gossip singer Beth Ditto was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct on Friday night (March 15).

The singer was reportedly arrested at 1:42am after being denied service in the Bungalo Bar in Portland for being too drunk, you can see her police mug shot above. A source told Willamette Week that after being thrown out of the bar, Ditto "walked out in the middle of the street, threw off her shoes and purse and screamed 'Obama! Obama!'" which alerted police who subsequently arrested her.

Additionally, a Reddit user who was drinking in the same bar as Ditto on the night posted his account of what happened prior to the arrest. The user states that "By 1:30 Beth was completely blackout drunk challenging people to fights. My friends and I headed over to the Bungalow from the Alibi only to be met with Beth's belligerent asshole posse. We got our drinks and went out to the back, only to hear her and her friends breaking shit." Adding: "Fifteen minutes later she was arrested for being a complete fucking cunt. The bartender called the police because she kicked him in balls." [NME, via]

We last caught Beth, in a much better mood, when she visited Brooklyn in September.

Arrested after being thrown out of a bar (balls kicked - symbolism I guess) then denied at another bar and only after yelling "Obama! Obama!" did they cuff her. That shit.

This can't be right. She must have been trying to drunkenly get into a closed IHOP or something and then denied. Or maybe it was the Pizza Hut buffet?

The bartender lied and said he didn't know who kicked him in the balls. Although, I guess he could have said "she kicked me in the balls but I don't want to press charges for that."

I don't know, all I remember is the bartender running to the back of the porch going "ow goddammit, she kicked me in the balls"

I tipped him very well that night.

American designer Marc Jacobs supports Beth Ditto from the background. He controls her. Jacobs is a manipulator who cruelly tortures a talented young girl called Angel Barta. He's been stealing her ideas for 5 years.. Jacobs fooled her with love and copied all her photos.. She was sexually harassed by Jacobs.

You don't have to be big to pick a fight with anyone in Portland. It's a city full of pussies riding fixies. All the men are tiny and wear skinny shirts (since they have no muscles). Red Fang kick ass though.

You're either a chubby chaser or a fat girl trying to feel better about herself. 5'2, 210 is obese, unhealthy, and unattractive. It's about time Americans started hearing the truth.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2013 6:30 PM

idk, height + weight aren't everything. Beth has a sort of smoldering hotness that you don't see everyday in your typical skinny ass hipster bitch

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2013 6:45 PM

5'2, 210 is morbidly obese. If she doesn't loose weight she'll be lucky to make it to 60.

She is fat, and she is fat because she lives a lazy, indulgent lifestyle. There is nothing attractive about it.

wow are you beth ditto's biographer? how do you know so much about her activity level and 'indulgent' lifestyle?

She looks like a fat version of that chick Melanie Lynskey.

Posted by Anonymous | March 18, 2013 7:22 PM

^people aren't born fat. That is a total myth.

So, if you're 5'2, 210 you HAVE to be living a lazy, indulgent lifestyle. There is no other way to become 5'2, 210.

America needs to stop making excuses for, and enabling, fat people. It has gotten out of control.

she WAS arrested you fucking cretin. THAT IS WHAT THIS STORY IS ABOUT. Like the above comment says, if you want to compare women vs men attitudes about this shit, check out the peter murphy story. where are the hateful, shaming, personal comments there? it's all jokes and people apologizing for the dude joyriding around LA on meth. all this woman did was get drunk and loud in a bar and kick someone in the balls who was un-phased enough to be walking around laughing about it after.
