Gere hater gets the boot

Tbdgere050407 Judge Dinesh Gupta, the Jaipur magistrate who issued an arrest warrant for Richard Gere after the actress publicly manhandled actress Shilpa Shetty, has been transferred from his job, the Times of India reports. The paper says Gupta has been banished to the small town of Kishangargh, several hours away. High Court commissioner C.P. Singh said the transfer was “routine,” the paper noted, but he also said the order came from a state chief justice, which is apparently a tad unusual. Someone out there must have really liked Pretty Woman. [Photo: AP]
