Dolores O' Riordan of the Cranberries takes on a stewardess.

I’ll be the first to agree with most people that air travel sucks ass, but taking it out on the flight attendant is low, even for a rock star.¬† That’s exactly what happened with Dolores O’ Riordan of the Cranberries couldn’t let it Linger (boo!) when she took down a stewardess on a flight from New York to Ireland.¬† I mean, the WHY would a rock star take it out on someone doing a job that clearly sucks the life out of you.


Air stewardess

No really, I’m actually dead inside.

I’m praising myself right now for NOT making a Zombie joke there. Good news though, O’Riordan is out of police custody following her arrest yesterday¬†over her¬†alleged air rage incident.¬† BBC News says O’Riordan was¬†thrown in the pokey¬†after a stewardess was attacked on an Aer Lingus flight from New York City to Shannon, Ireland.¬† The singer was questioned by Irish police, and then taken to a nearby hospital after she complained about being ill.¬† O’Riordan has since been discharged from the hospital and released without charge by police.¬† A spokesman for Aer Lingus says police are still investigating what he called a “security matter.”

Phew. ¬†Ok, it’s out of my system now.¬† The injured stewardess was taken to the hospital and treated for a suspected fracture in one of her feet. So She’ll live. ¬†A policeman was also injured during the arrest, but didn’t require any medical attention. ¬†The Cranberries are still kind of big in Ireland I guess, but have not had a hit in the US since the late 90’s. ¬†So rock star status MIGHT not have anything to do with the charges being dropped. ¬†Which leads us to the conclusion that the Irish can kick your¬†ass and get away with it.
