Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drunk, Legal Issues, Mug Shots,

Beth DittoGossip singer Beth Ditto has been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. The 32-year-old rocker was taken into custody in the early hours of Saturday morning following a disturbance outside the Bungalo Bar in Portland, Oregon.

Beth - real name Mary Beth Patterson - was detained by officers for being drunk after she left the establishment and threw her shoes in the middle of the road and started shouting out the name of President Barack Obama as her friends tried to put her in a car.

"She walked out in the middle of the street, threw off her shoes and purse and screamed Obama, Obama!" a source at the bar told the Willamette Week newspaper.

The "Standing in the Way of Control" singer was later released from custody and is now awaiting a court date. If she is convicted of second degree disorderly conduct she could be sentenced to up to six months in jail and may receive a fine of up to $2,500.


AT&T launches LTE in Seattle, Portland right before iPhone 5 launch

AT&T LTE Seattle Portland

If there's one feature to sway AT&T iPhone customers over to Verizon, it's the fact that Big Red has launched LTE in a ton of markets while AT&T plays catch-up. Tonight, AT&T closed the gap a bit with the launch of its LTE network in both Seattle and Portland, two major metropolitan areas that may have otherwise seen a hefty exodus when the iPhone 5 launches this Friday. Being that Gear Live is based here in the Seattle area, we started getting reports from a bunch of readers that their Lumia 900 devices were all of a sudden showing LTE connectivity. Sure enough, we confirmed it with our own unit, and AT&T followed up with a press release letting everyone know that LTE was now live in both Seattle and Portland areas. Readers are seeing speeds as high as 22Mbps down and 12Mbps up.

We've reached out to AT&T for information on just how large the LTE deployment is in these two metropolitan areas, as Verizon definitely has the entire greater region in each area covered in LTE.

Verizon 4gVerizon Wireless on Tuesday announced an additional 59 markets that will have access to its 4G LTE network by year's end, including Tuscon, Sacramento, Indianapolis, Louisville, and Portland.

Verizon launched its LTE network in December with 39 markets, and unveiled 49 more at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, so Tuesday's announcement will bring the total number of cities with LTE access to 147 by the end of the year.

"Aggressively expanding this powerful network beyond major metro areas reflects the reality that the 4G LTE ecosystem is growing quickly," David Small, chief technical officer for Verizon, said in a statement. "Our commitment to reach deep into medium-sized cities and smaller communities by the end of 2011 means the power of 4G LTE can be harnessed and provide advanced services to law enforcement, healthcare workers, educators, and other professionals, as well as to individual consumers, sooner than many thought possible."

Jamie Campbell Bower and apparently have two different visions for the Breaking Dawn adaptation.

In a recent interview, New Moon‘s Bower said would love to see his Sweeney Todd boss, Tim Burton, behind the camera for the fourth installment. “I think he’d just change it up. I think he’d screw around with it quite a lot, and aesthetically, I think it’d be incredibly different,” Jamie said. But which direction would Pattinson like to see the film go?

Carradine’s Death Forces Production Changes

David Carradine

The sudden - and currently unsolved - death of David Carradine last week has forced several projects to readjust.

According to TMZ, the producers of Stretch, the movie David was filming in Thailand, are now working on retooling the script. The 72-year-old still had critical scenes yet to complete at the time of his passing.

Meanwhile, two other movies will simply replace the actor altogether: Portland, an indie film that was nearing the principal photography phase, and Beyond Legend, Johnny Kakota. The producers of the latter project are now hoping to fill the void with Jon Voight.
