Limbaugh Arrested in Fla. on Drug Charges
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Rush Limbaugh was arrested Friday on prescription drug charges, law enforcement officials said. Limbaugh turned himself in to authorities on a warrant issued by the state attorney's office, said agency spokeswoman Teri Barbera. The conservative radio commentator came into the jail at about 4 p.m. with his attorney Roy Black and was released an hour later on $3,000 bail, Barbera said.

The warrant was for fraud to conceal information to obtain prescription, Barbera said.

For the nonce, nonce and a quarter, that's all the news thats fit to print on the subject, but I'm sure those with many more ears to the ground will be presenting updates ASAP. All I get is hate-mail from commies and letters from crazy Jay wanting to know if I remember where he stashed his spare chrono screens, but I'll be listening as well.

One charge of Doctor Shopping will be filed against him. If he remains in drug treatment for the next 18 months and pays $30000 to the state the charge will be dismissed.

Roy Black filed a plea of not guilty to the charge because Rush still maintains that he is innocent.

If he violates the law within the next 18 months or drops out of counseling the case will go to trial.

This friggin thing seems as if it's been going on forever. If he's truly addicted then why aren't the weepy hearts coming to his rescue.

Oh. Forgot. They only care if it's one of their own.
