Tatum O’Neal arrested for buying crack

Judging by the amount of e-mails I’ve received, a number of you actually know who Tatum O’Neal is. That’s way more surprising than her getting busted for buying crack by the NYPD last night. CNN reports:

The 44-year-old actress, who penned a 2004 memoir about her long road to sobriety, was arrested around 7:30 p.m. on the Lower East Side of Manhattan after she was seen making a purchase from a drug dealer, police said.
Investigators charged her with criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor. She is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

If I’m ever arrested at 44 for buying crack, I want you guys to give me a high-five. Obviously, I’ve done shit with my life yet still “keep it real.” Kudos, Tatum O’Neal, for getting back in that spotlight, girl. But only until Britney Spears decides she hates underwear again then it’s back to whatever it is that you do. Oh, right; crack.
