DUI 70s Edition

Two stars from classic ABC sitcoms getting pulled over for DUI in the same week, above, in case you didn't recognize him is Eddie Mekka AKA Carmine "The Big Ragu" from Laverne and Shirely.

And of course, Joyce Dewitt from Three's Company made (page16) headlines on the fourth. This is an awful picture of her BTW, I saw her upclose this spring and she's aged very gracefully.

My point was not to circulate celebrity gossip (although I guess I did that too) but to ask a question. Given that these things often happen in 3's, what 70s sitcom star do you think will next get pulled over ?

Here's my pick:

I'm going to go with Max Gail AKA "Wojo" from Barney Miller. I'm not basing this assumption on any knowledge of his private life, for all I know he's a lifelong teetotaller. What's your guess?

My bet is Jeff Conaway.

Easy guess, I realize...

Wow! The Big Ragu and Janet looin' rough!

I think I'll go with Greg Evigan.

Wow. So sad, but maybe it was just a fluke. I mean, these two haven't been all over the news in what, 20 years, at least?

Hope they get their lives back on track.
