UPDATE: Adam tweeted, “Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it.”
Reports about this still seem murky, but Adam Lambert and his Finnish boyfriend, Sauli Koskinen, spent several hours in a Finnish jail Thursday after being arrested outside a Helsinki gay bar following a brawl. (Via Hollywood Reporter)
According to Petri Juvonen, who is heading up the police investigation into the event, Lambert and Koskinen were arrested at around 4 a.m. Thursday morning outside DTM (Don’t Tell Mama), a famous Helsinki gay club.
According to media reports out of Finland, the dispute between the two men started in one of DTM’s back rooms. Lambert and Koskinen, a winner of the Finnish version of Big Brother, were apparently kicked out of the club but carried on fighting in the street outside.
Finnish beauty queen Sofia Ruusila, an ex-Miss Helsinki, who had been celebrating with Lambert and Koskinen, told a Finnish entertainment channel that she had tried to get between the quarrelling couple when Lambert accidently hit her by mistake.
Investigator Juvonen has completed his interrogation and the two were released on Thursday afternoon. Koskinen later blogged about the incident, writing in Finnish (as translated by Google): “Celebrities are people too and fame is not easy. Love is not always easy either, but it’s forever.” Koskinen goes on to say that the “hangover is gone already” and “Paparazzi, police stations have back doors, too, go away already.”
I have nothing to say about this, except that people can do really really dumb things when they are drunk. I’m sure it’ll all blow over eventually. In the meantime, it’s more press for Adam, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing–unless somebody kills a puppy, or something. Which doesn’t seem to be the case here.
Here’s a Finnish News Report.
Says Sauli was hauled off to a “drunk tank” type place, but Adam was taken to the police station?
