New York, December 19, 2005 – OMG! Jim Carrey was arrested in New York on Monday! We don't have details, but Carrey entered the Hello Deli at 53rd and Broadway in Manhattan, and cops followed, handcuffed him, and dragged him out and threw him into a police car. Carrey yelled out the window as the car sped away, "I'm a celebrity! See, these people know me!"
No doubt this incident has been hushed up by publicists, more as the story unfolds.
Update: The arrest was a stunt for the David Letterman show, where Carrey was promoting his new movie, "Fun With Dick and Jane". That would account for Carrey's sunny disposition during the embarrassing encounter.
