Chris Cross

It seems that Apprentice-wannabe Chris Shelton, known for his tobacco-chewing and explosive temper, was recently arrested at a Native American casino for making a scene.

'Apprentice' Chris arrested TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- Real estate millionaire Chris Shelton, a contestant on NBC's "The Apprentice," was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge. Shelton, 22, one of six remaining contestants competing for a job with Donald Trump, was taken into custody early Sunday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. He was released after posting $250 bail. A tribal police officer said he heard a noisy Shelton in the hotel lobby and asked him twice to calm down before arresting him, said Seminole police spokesman Gary Bitner. "He was loud and he just wouldn't calm down," Bitner said. Shelton was peeved over a $20 cover charge for the hotel bar. Shelton "was at the lobby causing a scene," the police report said. "There were several patrons in the area who were visibly shaken by his actions. After several attempts to calm Shelton, he continued to yell and curse, refusing to calm down and stop causing a scene." Shelton and some friends were staying at the hotel and celebrating his continued success on "The Apprentice," Bitner said. "We don't really have any comment," NBC spokesman Jim Dowd said. "This is clearly a private matter with Chris." All but the final episode has been taped, and it isn't known if Shelton makes it that far.
Chris, you are a true patriot, doing your part to combat the stereotype that only people of colour are loud, obnoxious, and hysterically inappropriate. Thanks to your tireless efforts, you have proven that white men, too, can be psychopathically homicidal and mindboggling dumb. On behalf of minority men and women everywhere, Chris Shelton, we salute you!
