Jason London. Just wow.   (Scottsdale PD)

(Newser) – If you thought Jason London was the saner of the London twins, today is the day we set you straight. The Dazed and Confused actor was arrested at a Scottsdale, Ariz., bar Sunday after allegedly punching numerous people ... and he's accused of defecating in the cop car en route to jail, Reuters reports. He also now stars in one of the more epic mugshots of our time. The police report says the trouble started when someone accused London of sneezing on him and asked the actor to apologize. That's when London allegedly punched the guy. As bouncers escorted him out, London allegedly punched them, too.

When cops showed up, "London showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment," the report says. And then the pièce de résistance: In the patrol car, London "lean[ed] to the left and defecate[d] in his pants." On Twitter, London defended himself, claiming he was "jumped" after "some guy thought I was hitting on his girl." He added, "I hate Arizona" and "I would never say or do the crap they are reporting." No pun intended, we assume. TMZ has a much more profanity-laden version of events.

I signed up for Newser just so I could send you the definition of "epic." I saw you use this word incorrectly in two articles in a row, and it was incredibly disappointing because you're supposed to be an editor. Here is the definition. 1. noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style.

I suppose that if he got any remaining crap beaten out of him by the police after they got to the police station.

The proverbial "piece-a-chit" story.
