Nicole Richie, socialite, reality TV star, serial dieter and adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie, was arrested last week in Los Angeles for DUI. News of the arrest, complete with mugshot, have of course been posted all over the Internet.
What's not yet generally known is that Ms. Richie was only taken into custody after a profanity-laden, anti-Semitic rant against police officers at the scene.
During the tirade, Richie claimed that Jews were responsible for all the eating disorders in the world, with their "delicious bakery and deli foods." She added that since the officers had a box of glazed doughnuts in their squad car, they must be "a couple of those g*ddammed bakery Jews."
At the police station, Richie also allegedly cursed at a male officer, and referred to him by the term "sugar nuts."
Richie had been working on a Yucatec-language version of The Simple Life at the time of her arrest. It's unclear if her legal troubles will impact the show.
