Sure, Eddie Murphy was never technically arrested but, in the words of the great Mills Lane, I’ll allow it. And that’s because even while the cops let Eddie walk, the incident was embarrassing enough that he might as well have gotten arrested. You see, way back in 1997, poor Eddie was caught by the cops with a hooker in his car. No big deal, right? Happens all the time. The thing is, is that the hooker wasn’t a lady – or a dude for that matter. No, Eddie’s hooker was a transvestite, and hey, that’s cool man, whatever rocks your socks. But what made the incident go from eyebrow raiser to sublimely ridiculous was Eddie’s defense, which was that he was just being a Good Samaritan and giving the poor, lost lady-dude a ride. And it actually worked! The cops arrested the transvestite and let Eddie drive away. So keep that in mind the next time you’re pulled over with a blonde in the passenger seat who looks like she could play linebacker for the Raiders. But hell, to be fair, this is only like, the fifth most embarrassing thing that’s happened to Eddie Murphy in the last 15 years or so. Let’s not forget, this was the man who made Norbit
. Clearly he has no shame.
