Old school MTV fans remember the show the “Real World” and one of the most colorful characters was a fellow named David “Puck” Rainey, who has been arrested on domestic violence charges.
Puck as fans know him was the rowdy fellow of that season’s “Real World”. He got into an argument like twice an episode. Fans thought he would get shot or beat up by the end of the series but his behavior was a ratings booster and the media jumped at every episode and chance to exploit it.
He brought in a new audience and new life into the series that had started dying off and he set the pattern for the wild type of behavior that followed not only in MTV but other venues where the ‘bad boy’ thing took hold.
However, this time in Los Angeles, the 42 year old Rainey, got himself busted on June 19 on suspicion of felony corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
Only in California would that kind of charge be levied against someone instead of being arrested on suspicion of beating up someone at home.
He’s sitting in LA County Men’s Central Jail looking at $30k in bail. He’s due to see the judge on July 6.*Sponsored Links*
