Jerry Buss-ted for Driving Drunk
When we last saw high-stakes poker player and LA Lakers owner Jerry Buss in person, it was at the Commerce Casino in LA this past March and the 74-year-old was palling around with an absurdly hot chick in her early twenties who reminded us that when we're as old as Buss, our current/first wives will not be in their early twenties, but instead will be old as dirt, which is exactly why they are our current/first wives.
While this has nothing to do with Buss getting arrested today for driving while intoxicated in Carlsbad, it does make us wonder if Jeannana Flores, the 23-year-old girl who was in the car with Buss at the time of the arrest, is the same chick we saw with Buss last March (and no, we're not talking about the girl in the PokerNews interview with Buss). The name however doesn't necessarily fit the package of the girl we saw in as much as it conjures up the thought of a certain Puerto Rican trannie prostitute we once knew.
In a statement released by the Lakers today, Buss said:
"Although I was driving only a short distance, it was a bad decision and I was wrong to do it. It was a mistake I will not make again."
Ironically this is almost word for word the same thing we've said at least 147 times before.
