Limbaughed

One of the greatest hypocrites of our time has been arrested ONCE AGAIN. Truly a sad commentary on the American people that this guy enjoys any success. He plays to peoples fears, hatreds, prejudices, and ignorance. Instead of fame, this guy should be locked up.... oh, wait a minute, he probably will be...... remember this is his second arrest on drug charges.

Rush Limbaugh Arrested on Drug Charges

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 Teri Barbera, a spokeswoman for the State Attorney's Office.

The conservative radio commentator came into the jail at about 4 p.m. with his attorney Roy Black and bonded out an hour later on a $3,000 bail, Barbera said.

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

Black said his client and authorities reached a settlement on a charge of doctor shopping filed Friday by the State Attorney.

Prosecutors seized Limbaugh's records after learning that he received about 2,000 painkillers, prescribed by four doctors in six months, at a pharmacy near his Palm Beach mansion. They contend that Limbaugh engaged in "doctor shopping," or illegally deceived multiple doctors to receive overlapping prescriptions.

He has acknowledged he became addicted to pain medication, blaming it on severe back pain, and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter a rehabilitation program in 2003.
