Mickey Rourke busted for SUI




That would stand for “Scootering Under the Influence.” Mickey Rourke -- shown here impersonating an extra from Pirates of the Caribbean -- was arrested on DUI charges early Thursday morning in Miami Beach while driving his Vespa, the Palm Beach Post reported. A police spokesman told People that Rourke blew a .081 on the Breathalyzer and spent 24 hours at the Miami Dade County jail. According to the arrest report, Rourke’s face was flushed, his eyes bloodshot and his speech slurred. “I’m not drunk, I didn’t even drink that much,” the actor is quoted as saying.
