Los Angeles, California – March 17, 2008. Actor Thomas Jane spent his St. Paddy’s Day dealing with the authorities. In the early Monday hours, Jane was allegedly zooming in his Maserati on Interstate 5 at 124 m.p.h. It has been awhile since I drove on a California Interstate, but I am pretty sure 124 m.p.h. is excessively over the legal speed limit.
The California Highway Patrol must agree because they promptly stopped Jane, and conducted an investigation. Jane was booked and charged with the following crimes:
- Driving with a blood alcohol level higher than 0.08
- Possession of drugs without a prescription
Jane’s arraignment hearing is scheduled for April 9th. Thomas Jane is known for starring in “The Punisher,” “Magnolia,” and “The Mist.”
