A visual aid for those of you who did not recognize London in his mugshot: Jason London as we are used to seeing him (left), and in his mugshot.

It looks like actor Jason London, 40, known best for his role as Randall “Pink” Floyd in the film Dazed and Confused, was arrested on January 27, 2012, after a fight at the Martina Ranch bar in Scottsdale, Arizona. According to the police report obtained by Reuters another bar patron, 26, asked London, who police said “showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment,” to apologize after sneezing on him — so London punched the guy, allegedly.

When three bouncers, no doubt politely, escorted London out, the 6-foot tall 180-pound actor allegedly resisted, forcing them to “defend themselves.” That’s probably when London got that that nifty shiner visible in the above mugshot. London, who was later admitted to the emergency room with a  right orbital fracture, severe bruising and a concussion, tells a different story, “Some guy thought I was hitting on his girl and had me jumped. My wife was in the next room, had no idea what even happened. I hate Arizona.”

The report goes on to say that when paramedics examined London’s eye he “became belligerent and started cursing” at and pushing police and paramedics. He was arrested on suspicion of assault with intent to injure and disorderly conduct. Once in the squad car, officers reported that London complained about the smell and proceeded to “lean to the left and defecate in his pants.”

On January 29 an indignant and by-then sober London tweeted that “I would never say or do the crap they are reporting.”

Interesting choice of words.
