‘Dazed & Confused’ Actor Jason London Busted at Bar, Craps in Cop Car

Actor Jason London was arrested in Arizona and charged with assault and disorderly conduct

Actor Jason London’s claim to fame was the 1993 blockbuster Dazed and Confused, but it’s doubtful he knew then how appropriate the title would be next to his mugshot years later.

The former heartthrob, now 40 years old, was arrested in Arizona on Sunday for punching a man at a bar and subsequently swinging at the club’s bouncers, according to Reuters.

The victim accused London of sneezing in his face at the Martini Ranch in Scottsdale and asked that he apologize. London opted for the less gentlemanly route — that is, punching the man in the face. The sneeze was allegedly intentional. The clip from the police report below explains this part of the incident. When bouncers tried to remove him, he took some swings at them; their retaliation seems like the probable cause of that nasty shiner in his mugshot above. When paramedics tried to treat the swelling around his eye, he apparently became belligerent with them as well.

This is where it really gets good — after complaining about the smell in the patrol car that he eventually ended up in, police saw London lean to the side and defecate in his pants.

According to the police report (see above), London used a homophobic slur against his arresting officer. The clip also explains the whole crapping-his-pants-intentionally thing.

London took to Twitter to deny all of these allegations:

According to the police report, authorities spoke with London’s wife Sophia, who said “I know he’s an asshole when he drinks.” She said that London had “blacked out” at one point, and when he came to he’d thought that the police were the ones who inflicted his injuries. She also said that he had no recollection of the incident. How London believes he can dispute the charges against him when he can’t even remember what happened is a mystery.

London’s best-known role was Randall “Pink” Floyd, his high school’s star football player in Dazed and Confused. He was famously asked to sign an anti-drug pledge in the film, and his denial may have been foreshadowing for events to come. Check out the classic scene from the film above. Jason’s identical twin brother Jeremy is also an actor, but apparently way less of a trainwreck.
