Gossip lead singer Beth Ditto was arrested in her hometown of Portland Friday night (March 15) for disorderly conduct. According to NME, Ditto was cuffed at 1:42 a.m. after she was refused service in Bungalow Bar for being too drunk, and reportedly began yelling “Obama! Obama!” outside the bar. A Reddit commenter later posted a supposed eyewitness account with more details, including the claim that the bartender called the cops after Ditto “kicked him in the balls.”
Ditto was released with no bail and is awaiting a court date.
