Rush Limbaugh: Rush Limbaugh was Not Arrested
Saturday, April 29, 2006
(SNN West Palm Beach) A spokesman for Rush Limbaugh said news reports that state Mr. Limbaugh was arrested are inaccurate.
The spokesman wanted to make it well known that Mr. Limbaugh just went to the Police Dept. as a special "photo op" to show how much he appreciates the boys in blue. And the boys in blue love Rush too. They like him so much, that they wouldn't let him leave without putting up $3000 in bond money. Furthermore, the booking number and charge of Fraud – Conceal Info to Obtain Prescription was just a prank the officers played on him. The warrant that was issued previous to his visit was just a courtesy detail.
Roy Black, attorney to Rush Limbaugh, stated "Mr. Limbaugh and I have maintained from the start that there was no doctor shopping, and we continue to hold this position. Accordingly, we filed today with the Court a plea of 'Not Guilty' to the charge filed by the State."
Limbaugh was able to come to an agreement with the state. Black stated, "As part of this agreement, Mr. Limbaugh also has agreed to make a $30,000 payment to the State of Florida to defray the public cost of the investigation. The agreement also provides that he must refrain from violating the law during the 18 month period, must pay $30 per month for the cost of 'supervision' and comply with other similar provisions of the agreement."
This just goes to show how civic minded Rush Limbaugh is. While the government is impinging on his freedom, he is even going to pay them a gratuity.
