If you see something, say something. But if you don’t see something, also say something.

That was the general feeling in Fairfield, CT last night as 911 was inundated with calls from cable subscribers angry about missing Breaking Bad after a cable outage. The local police, however, weren’t amused and posted the following message on their Facebook page, “We are receiving numerous 911 calls regarding the Cablevision outage. This is neither an emergency or a police related concern. Please direct your inquiries to Cablevision. Misuse of the 911 system may result in an arrest.”

But you have to assume if the cable is out, the internet would also be out so that message probably didn’t reach anybody. Nice work, detectives. (Daily Mail)

7 Reasons Why DJ Qualls May Have Been Beaten By Police http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-why-dj-qualls-may-have-been-beaten-by-police/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-why-dj-qualls-may-have-been-beaten-by-police/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 13:00:01 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230021 What happens when a random crime isn't so random after all.

Road Trip and Hustle & Flow actor DJ Qualls got beat up by a Canadian this weekend. As embarrassing as that sounds, in all fairness, it was a cop that attacked Qualls. The alleged beating took place when Qualls (who was in Vancouver to film an episode of Supernatural) witnessed a “multi dude fight” and then “saw a dude punch a girl.” When trying to explain what he witnessed to an arresting officer he was inexplicably threatened and then attacked and handcuffed.

As confusing and needless as this crime seems, perhaps it wasn’t a miscommunication or random chance. Perhaps the officer knew full well who he was attacking and was actually upholding justice… Canadian Justice.

Here are seven potential reasons DJ Qualls may have got his ass beat.

The Cop Also Auditioned For Supernatural

Qualls claims that the officer who beat him repeatedly asked, “You think you’re f***ing better than me?” This leads me to surmise that the officer is also an aspiring actor who has grown jaded and disillusioned by the audition process. He’d probably read for the part on the CW‘s Supernatural and thought he had it in the bag. Then Mr. Hustle & Flow swooped in using his past credits to steal the role out from underneath him.

He Was Mistaken For Joel David Moore

It’s a little known fact, but Joel David Moore actually has 47 warrants out for his arrest in Canada. This all stemmed from an incident at a Toronto Maple Leafs’ game in 2009 where he wouldn’t offer his seat to Dave Foley. I’m told there’s also a hefty reward.

One of E.L.’s Schemes Backfired

E.L. and the guys certainly seem like they know what they’re talking about but then again, they’re only college students. How did they get to become experts? Actually, E.L.’s track record is pretty spotty. Wasn’t it enough when he blew up DJ Qualls’ car? And it’s not the first time he’s caused a fight to break out. Whatever he did to anger the Canadian Mounties must be pretty extreme to prompt a beating like this.
