Hayley Hasselhoff charged with DUI

Hayley Hasselhoff has been charged with driving under the influence.The 24-year-old beauty – who is the daughter of David Hasselhoff and his ex-wife Pamela Bach – was arrested last month when police found her passed out in her Mercedes on a Los Angeles freeway off-ramp, and when she was breathalysed, her reading was .14, almost double the legal limit in California of 0.8, TMZ reports.

She has now been charged over the incident, and if convicted she could be jailed for up to six months and fined $1,000.

It was previously reported the ‘Sharknado: The 4th Awakens’ actress had been taken to hospital for evaluation after being picked up by police.

Meanwhile, Hayley has previously spoken about the bullying she received because she was overweight as a youngster.

She said: “I was picked on a lot as a child. One time that most stands out is during a dance at school. I heard this boy say, ‘I got the fat girl.’ Afterwards, I told my mother, ‘Don’t ever make me go again.’ It was awful. But I just wasn’t formed the same way as everyone else.”

But now, Hayley is happy with how she looks and is pleased with the rise in plus size girls on catwalks, as there “was nothing” when she started modeling aged 14.

She said: “The number of bigger girls on the catwalk is ever-growing. When I was 14 and starting out, there was nothing, but now there’s so much plus-size on the high street – even in high fashion.”

Amanda Bynes Breaks 4-Year Silence

Amanda Bynes has spoken out publicly for the first time in four years, announcing her plans to return to acting.

“I do miss acting, and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again,” Bynes said in an interview with Hollyscoop founder/”The Lowdown” host Diana Madison. “I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it, in the future. That’s what I hope.”

Bynes declared her retirement from acting via Twitter in 2010.

When asked how she’s doing after so many years, Bynes said, “I’m doing great, thank you. Really great.”

“I’ve been going to school lately, fashion school–FIDM. And I love it,” she added. “I’ve learned how to sew, I’ve made patterns, and I want to start a clothing line in the future, so FIDM has been helping me with that. Other than that I hike, I go spinning — I take spinning classes — and I feed the homeless. And that’s been really interesting and fun.”

During the interview, the former Nickelodeon star said she is three years sober. In 2014, the actress was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of a drug after California Highway Patrol observed her white Mercedes Benz GL 450 stopping in the middle of a Sherman Oaks, Calif. intersection.

She was previously booked in 2012 after hitting a police car. The actress agreed to a plea deal stemming from that arrest back in February, the terms of which put her on three-years probation and forced her to enter three months of drug and alcohol treatment.

In addition to her driving related arrests, Bynes has made tabloid headlines in recent years for everything from a driveway fire to a flurry of bizarre and often vitriolic tweets.

In July of 2013, Bynes entered rehab and stayed there under a court-ordered psychiatric hold. She was released that December and eventually enrolled in Los Angeles’ Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

In 2014, Bynes also took to Twitter to accuse her father of physically and sexually abusing her as a child, which she then recanted, also via the social media site.

Bynes’ last on-screen role was 2010’s “Easy A,” in which she starred as Marianna alongside Emma Stone and Penn Badgley. Prior to that, she starred in “Hairspray” in 2007 and “She’s the Man” in 2006.

Former Razorback, NFL’s Jonathan Williams Found Not Guilty

Former Razorback, NFL’s Jonathan Williams Found Not Guilty in Drunk Driving Case FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.  Great day for Buffalo Bills running back Jonathan Williams — who fought his 2016 drunk driving arrest … AND WON.TMZ Sports broke the story … Williams — a 5th round pick out of Arkansas in 2016 — was pulled over in Fayetteville, AR on July 14, 2016 when cops suspected he had been drinking. Williams had admitted to drinking a 40 oz. before getting behind the wheel, but refused to take a breathalyzer … leading to his arrest. He begged cops to give him a pass because he was just drafted into the NFL. Williams pled not guilty and took the case to trial — where prosecutors failed to prove JW was driving drunk that night. Why? We’re told the lack of a positive blood alcohol test was a factor.We spoke with Williams’ lawyer, Shane Wilkinson, who says, “The prosecution simply didn’t have enough evidence to prove he was intoxicated.””Jonathan is a good person and he is glad this is behind him so he can concentrate on his family and football.”
