Jason London, star of beloved cult film Dazed and Confused, has seen better days. Earlier this week, the actor started a bar brawl, was arrested, and then defecated in the back of a squad car, according to the police. The downward spiral apparently started Sunday in Arizona after he punched a bouncer in the face (reportedly after sneezing on the bouncer, and then refusing to apologize). London was thrown out of the bar and beaten up in the process, and reacted violently when paramedics arrived to treat him, resulting in his arrest for disorderly conduct and assault. London "showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment," say police reports. The actor then reportedly uttered a homophobic slur to the cops on the way to the police station and claimed that, "I fucking own you guys so hard. I'm rich and I'm a motherfucking famous actor! Fucking look me up, bitch." He then soiled the back of the car, declaring: "I told you I'm happy as shit." London's wife, actress Sofia Karstens, told cops the next day that "he's an asshole when he drinks," claiming he has no recollection of the incident. London took to Twitter yesterday to call the accusations against him a "total fucking lie." "I got jumped by three 250 pound bouncers. They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes," he wrote. "I would never say or do the crap they are reporting. Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see...I hate Arizona."
