    Default Al Gore's son busted for drugs in hybrid car

    http://www.reuters.com/article/domes...rpc=22&sp=true



    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for allegedly speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius, a sheriff's official said.

    Al Gore III -- whose father is a leading advocate of policies to fight global warming -- was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 100 miles per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m..

    A subsequent search yielded a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. There were no prescriptions found, he said.

    Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and booked into the Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana, about 34 miles south of Los Angeles, on $20,000 bail, he said.

    It was not Gore's first brush with the law. He was arrested in 2003 for marijuana possession and in 2002 for suspected drunken-driving.

    Gore was still in custody as of mid-morning and was sharing a holding cell with an unknown number of people, said Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino.

    "There are no special privileges," he told Reuters.

    Gore cooperated with law enforcement as soon he was pulled over and quickly identified himself as the son of the former vice president, Amormino said.

    A spokesman for the elder Gore said he was traveling and could not immediately be reached for comment.

    I'm impressed. I didn't know one of those things would do 100!

    Sounds like a night at college for me...I bet prescriptions turn up for these.

    i bet Al Gore will say his son is being prescribed xanax and vallium because hes worried about global warming..............

    the small amount of marijuana hes smoking is to take off the edge from thinking about the polar ice cap melting.

    (which might cause west coast flooding thus reducing his chances of scoring some primo maui wowie bud , which leads to the need for said xanax prescription.)

    This guy is missing some marbles if he thinks it is safe to drive a Prius that fast. There isn't much to those cars....

    I'm still smiling about the media emphasizing it was a Toyota Prius.

    Okay, let's start writing the eventual Gore family press release (I know Al (Dad) said they would be handling it "privately", but please - the press won't let them).

    Some snipits:

    "My son is a good person."

    "He struggles with a dependency on perscription drugs."

    "The perscriptions drugs lead to the marijuana use."

    "We believe in him and we will help him fight the demons from this terrible disease."

    It'll be something like that. I don't know about any of you, but it seems EVERYONE in the spotlight that receives media coverage eventually has a problem (i.e. crutch or excuse to make it easier to get away with bullshit like this). It could also be used for a bit of sympathy.

    And I don't mean any disrespect to anyone with a REAL problem.

    Let the machine continue to turn.
