On Friday night, the lead singer of dancerock band, Gossip, was arrested in Portland for disorderly conduct outside of a bar. Beth Ditto, neé Mary Beth Patterson, allegedly got riled up at Bungalo Bar because she was denied her request for another drink at 1:42am. She then proceeded to throw down her purse, kick off her shoes, and stomp outside while yelling, “Obama! Obama!” This obviously alerted the surrounding police, who scooped up the sloshed Ditto and took her in their custody. According to one Reddit user, who took took to the boards to proclaim that Ditto was a “bitch,” she also kicked the bartender in the balls.
The singer is out on bail now with a court date pending.
