Reports trickled in early this morning that Rover (real name: Shane French), morning show host for the conveniently named Rover's Morning Glory show over at WMMS, was arrested at 3:30 a.m.(ish) last night/this morning at Whiskey Island for drunk and disorderly conduct. (Update: He was, in the words of one police source, "hammered," but the incident started when Rover was setting off fireworks at 3:30 at the Old River Yacht Club.)
Apparently he's still sitting in jail this morning, enjoying that post-July 4th hangover in the quiet, comforted seclusion of a cell.
If you had been wondering who would complete the media-personality alcohol-related incident trifecta after Kenny "Tippin' it" Crumpton and Chuck Galeti, well, you have your answer now.
