That 70’s Arrest: Actress Lisa Robin Kelly Arrested on Felony Charges
by Sam the Butcher Posted: April 3rd, 2012
Lisa Robin Kelly who is probably best known for her role as Topher Graces sister Laurie on ‘That 70’s Show’, was arrested on Saturday and is facing felony domestic violence charges.
The 42 year old actress, or I guess former actress would be more suiting here, was taken into custody by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Saturday afternoon. According to a Sheriff’s Department spokesman, she was released on $50,000 bail.
According to ABC News, at this time no charges have been filed yet with the Los Angeles District Attorneyâ€™s office.
I guess some people just can’t get their shit together in Hollywood (take note of this one Lohan, you’re not too far from a mugshot like this). I know it’s hard to remember her after looking at that disgusting mug shot, but if you watched ‘That 70’s Show’ then you remember the multiple reports of her being fired for continual drug use. And if you look at the Lisa Robin Kelly IMDB page in her bio section where it says “Where Are They Now”, hers reads “(November 2010) Pled guilty to DWI in North Carolina”.
This latest incident with Kelly is a little bit differnt than her usual m.o. though (although I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some drugs and/or alcohol involved). According to TMZ she claims that she is being set up by her male roommate/spouse (some sources are saying ‘roommate’ while others are saying ‘spouse’, it is still not confirmed what their relationship is).
Lisa stated that the two of them were having problems Friday night, and when she tried to leave that it was him who became violent with her. The man apparently left the scene before the cops showed up. Lisa decided not to press charges at the time.
Then shortly after the incident, the man showed up at the police station claiming that HE had been assualted by her. Lisa insists that this did not happen and that the man must have inflicted the injuries to himself.
According to Lisa, “He must have scratched himself or done something to himself,”.
The actress also added, â€œI am clean and sober and I have made a lot of progress. I am completely innocent. I weigh 105 pounds. I could never hurt him. I just want to start working again.”
We’ll see how this pans out although I don’t think I care too much now that she looks like that. Again though Lindsay, if your reading this take note.
