Mickey Rourke arrested for DUI on a Vespa

November 8th, 2007 // 60 Comments

Mickey Rourke was arrested for driving his Vespa drunk after leaving a Miami nightclub early this morning. The actor claimed he wasn’t drinking but then failed to pass a field sobriety test. Fred Montana, a photographer for the Palm Beach Post, was hoping to catch pictures of Jennifer Lopez after her concert when he bumped into Mickey Rourke entering the club:

“They came back out two hours later and crossed Washington Avenue to go to his scooter,” Montana said. “They both got on it, and he did a U-turn to go north. He was pulled over within a block.
“The cop says to him: ‘You swerved right in front of me.’ And Mickey answered: ‘No, no, dude, I’m all right.’”
Actually, according to the arrest report, Rourke also let out a four-letter bomb when he was stopped. Cops say the actor had a flushed face and bloodshot and watery eyes and that his speech was slurred.

Really, Mickey Rourke? A Vespa? This almost destroys all the badass cred you’ve built up over the years. Don’t get me wrong, when you quit acting at the height of your career and became a boxer. That was hardcore. You totally got your face mangled despite being voted one of the most beautiful men in Hollywood at the time. Then you made a comeback and starred in Sin City where you tore shit up. But, Jesus, a Vespa? That almost puts you at square one, dude. I don’t even know how you’ll bounce back from this one. Unless you fight me; Mano a mano. Or tank vs. tank. Which I’m all for. Call me; I know a dude. That is if you’re not feeling too crampy or bloated. What with your uterus and all.

    I notices he has a personal ad at (Millionairematch.com/photo/bloger). Is he still looking or it is just a joke from his fans? His photos look every hot and popular on that site. who knows the truth?

  3. Heres another Vespa related post -The Sin City actor Mickey Rourke seems to be a fan of blue Vespa’s and apparently the odd shot of whiskey. Mickey was caught at 4.20am on his blue vespa in Miami – Oh come on Mickey, why would you think riding your blue Vespa at 4 in the morning would not attract attention. To be honest, Vespa’s get attention even in the day -never mind underneath a pissed movie star.

  7. Wow that sucks… It looks like someone needs a

  8. I personally think it is pretty hardcore to be driving drunk on a Vespa. I have a hard enough time walking around at times, let alone driving a Vespa with another person on there.
