Australian actress whose family claimed she went missing after dating someone she met online has been found… turns out cops say she was been in jail the whole time!!!
Here’s the deal… Laura McCullochan actress and singer in Los Angeles, scared her family in Australia when she apparently fell off the grid after going on a first date.
Laura’s family wept to Australian media over the weekend, saying she was last seen at a restaurant in Santa Monica on Friday and then failed to show up for her day job and her yoga class. The family say they became concerned when they could not reach her by phone and reported her as missing to the LAPD.
But here’s what really happened.
Santa Monica police tell TMZ … Laura was arrested Friday night in Santa Monica after police received a call at the popular 3rd Street Promenade for a reported battery.
Cops say when they arrived at the scene, they were told Laura had thrown a drink at another restaurant and their child.
It doesn’t appear Laura is having a second date with her mystery man…police say when they approached her she showed clear signs of intoxication and charged at the officers, shouting expletives.
The cops say they tried to calm her down, but Laura continued to be aggressive… and when the police went to restrain her, the cops say she became physically combative, kicking the officers and biting a shoulder cop.
Laura was sentenced to Santa Monica Jail early Saturday morning for public intoxication and resisting arrest, and we’re told she spent the weekend behind bars and hasn’t contacted anyone she knows.
We’re told the actress appeared before a judge on Tuesday and remains in custody.
This may be the only time a family will be happy to learn that their loved one is in prison.
