Rush Limbaugh Arrested!
According to Fox News, Rush Limbaugh was arrested this afternoon. Fox also quoted Limbaugh's attorney saying that the charge will be dropped in 18 months if Limbaugh can show he is no longer using drugs and has beaten his addiction.
Rush Limbaugh has been under investigation since one of his employees confessed that Limbaugh had pressured her to be a "drug mule," first aquiring and then carrying enormous quantities of drugs and cash for Limbaugh. By some reports, Limbaugh bought thousands of pills per purchase, and was taking as many as 90 pills a day -- crushed up and snorted.
Limbaugh's addiction was so severe that he became deaf (a known side-effect of pain killer abuse). Only after a series of expensive surgeries was Limbaugh's hearing partially restored, although he will depend on hearing aids for the rest of his life.
