Gore’s Son Jailed – 100mph In A Prius, Drugs

Speaking of Gaia’s patron saint, Al Gore, we now have this from CBS News:

Albert Gore III

Al Gore’s Son Busted On Drug Charges In O.C.

(CBS) CHICAGO Al Gore’s son was in jail on suspicion of possessing marijuana and prescription drugs after he was pulled over for allegedly driving a hybrid vehicle 100 mph on an Orange County freeway, a sheriff’s spokesman said.

Al Gore III, 24, of Los Angeles, was allegedly driving a blue Toyota Prius on the southbound San Diego (5) Freeway about 100 mph about 2:15 a.m. when a sheriff’s deputy stopped him at the Crown Valley Parkway exit, said Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

The deputy allegedly smelled marijuana and a search of the vehicle turned up less than an ounce of suspected pot, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used to treat attention deficit disorder, Amormino said.

Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and booked into the Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail.

The Prius was towed away and stored.

He was charged with marijuana possession in Maryland in 2003 after police stopped the car he was driving for not having its headlights on. In February 2004 he entered a substance abuse program as part of a plea agreement.

Gore was ticketed for reckless driving by North Carolina police in August 2000 for allegedly driving 94 mph, and in September 2002, military police arrested him on suspicion of drunk driving near a military base in Virginia

In April 1989, he nearly died in a car accident in Maryland.

How perfectly politically incorrect. And talk about your timing.

So how much for the carbon offset papal indulgence?
