Newlywed Wentz Caught Up In Police Drama
( CM ) - PETE WENTZ and ASHLEE SIMPSON's newlywed bliss was shattered in the early hours of Monday morning (19May08) - by a shock police call.
Wentz's pal, rapper Tyga, was caught driving the Fall Out Boy star's Mercedes and pulled over by Los Angeles police - and the authorities had to call the rocker to verify that his friend had permission to use the vehicle.
Wentz says, "I get a call from the LAPD... and they were like, 'Do you know someone who should be driving your Mercedes?' and I was like, `Tyga,' and they were like, 'What is his real name?' `I don't know, Tyga Mann?'
"He wrote me back said if I hadn't picked up my phone they had him in handcuffs and were arresting him for having stolen the car."
Wentz, who wed Simpson on Saturday (17May08), admits he wasn't thrilled to get the early morning call. He says sarcastically, "Your wife is pretty stoked to get that call at 3.45am."
