SideShow: Charges against Garrison; Dick Clark’s surgery; summer wedding mania!

Posted: April 24, 2012

‘Prison Break’ star arrested

Lane Garrison spent Sunday night in jail after his arrest on felony domestic violence charges, accused of assaulting his ex-gf Ashley Mattingly at her Beverly Hills apartment building. Harland Braun, Garrison’s lawyer, told TMZ Sunday the Prison Break star was visiting a friend in the same building and ran into Ashley by chance. Braun said Garrison admits there was an argument but denies hitting his ex-gf. But security camera footage posted Monday by TMZ shows Garrison grabbing Ashley’s arm with one hand and slapping her face with the other. Braun has yet to respond to TMZ’s new report.

Dick Clark had surgery

Dick Clark’s death certificate, posted by TMZ, shows he had undergone surgery to correct an enlarged prostate the day before his death April 18 from a massive heart attack. There are no indications the surgery caused Clark’s heart attack.

Nugent admits illegal bear kill

In a plea deal with the feds, Ted Nugent has admitted he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska two years ago. He apparently wounded one bear, then killed a second, breaking a “one bag” rule. He must pay a $10,000 fine and create a 30- to 60-second public service announcement about responsible hunting on his outdoors cable TV show, Spirit of the Wild. His lawyer says the law is preposterous.

Wedding mania

The sheer public envy might bring on the Apocalypse! Two weeks after Brangelina announced plans to wed, the tabs say Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are planning a dueling wedding this summer in Jen’s dad’s homeland, the paradisal island of Crete, as a response to the (reported) decision by Jen’s ex, Brad Pitt, to marry Jen nemesis Angelina Jolie this summer in France. What’s more, People says reunited honeys Justin Timberlake, 31, and Jessica Biel, 30, want a really big wedding, also this summer. No other human will be able to marry after this.

Back in reality: None of this has been confirmed by fact. Fact, Jen’s rep says the Crete report is a “total fabrication.”

Lindsay Lohan confirms old news
