Surfer Bruce Irons Denies DUI Drug Allegations Sobriety Test Showed I Was Fine


Surf legend Bruce Irons tells TMZ Sports he’s confident he will beat the DUI Drug allegations against him — claiming the field sobriety showed he was “fine.”

As we previously reported, the 39-year-old surfer was arrested in Newport Beach last week when cops claim they found him passed out behind the wheel of a car with the engine running. 

He was booked for driving under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. 

Now, Irons tells us … he’s confident he’ll be cleared — and called the whole thing a “hiccup in the road.”

“I did the sobriety test and I was fine,” Irons told us at LAX on his way back to Hawaii. 

Irons admits he was driving on an expired license — but says he had planned to go back to Hawaii and fix that situation before the arrest. 

Bruce also had a message for his fans — “Innocent until proven guilty.”

The surfer has previously acknowledged issues with substance abuse — but makes it pretty clear in this clip he believes the DUI allegations are BS.

David Eason Posts Racy Pic of Jenelle Evans Following Abuse Allegations

Earlier today, we reported on news that Jenelle Evans was rushed to a hospital last week following an altercation with her husband, David Eason.

Neither party has addressed the allegations publicly — but that doesn't mean they're ignoring this latest scandal. 

Far from it, in fact.

Jenelle just issues a bizarre statement through her rep, while David — well David keeps finding new ways to hit rock bottom.

And this time, fans aren't putting up with his boorish behavior:

1. Bad Times on the Land

5. Downplaying the Situation?

Jenelle Evans: Is She Protecting David Eason From Assault Allegations?

For years now, it's seemed that not a week goes by without some scandal involving Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason.

Lately, however, the Easons have really picked up the pace, and now, new controversies seem to emerge from the couples' beloved "Land" on an almost-daily basis.

Most of them have had to do with the latest abuse allegations against David.

Accounts vary as to what exactly David is guilty of, but thousands on social media are thoroughly convinced that Jenelle's partner is very much up to no good.

Take a look at the latest accusations in the gallery below:


1. Better Days

For several weeks now, there have been constant rumors about serious trouble on the property that Jenelle and David have bafflingly dubbed the Land.

3. It Begins With Dolph

4. Angry Dave

Ariana Grande Takes Social Media Hiatus Following Pete Davidson Allegations

It’s been less than a week since the world learned that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have called off their engagement and ended their relationship.

Neither party has spoken publicly about the split yet, but that hasn’t prevented the public from running wild with speculation about what might have caused the breakup.

On Tuesday, a shocking allegation against Davidson began to circulate on social media.

Believe it or not, multiple outlets are now reporting that Grande ended the relationship after learning that Pete had sent explicit photos of the singer to her ex, Mac Miller.

The goal, sources say, was to convince Miller that he should abandon any hope of a possible reconciliation with Grande.

The accusation is particularly shocking in the wake of Miller’s death by overdose last month.

It’s important to repeat that the allegations against Davidson are the result of unconfirmed rumors, and for obvious reasons, we hope they’re eventually debunked.

But even if the rumors are disproven, they serve as a potent reminder of how much harder a breakup can be when it takes place in the public eye.

So it’s not at all surprising that Grande has decided to take a hiatus from social media until such time as interest in her defunct relationship with Davidson begins to die down.

“Ok today was v special and i’m so grateful i was able to be there,” Grande wrote on Instagram earlier this week, referring to an NBC Halloween special she had participated in that day.

“Time to say bye bye again to the internet for just a lil bit,” the singer continued.

“It’s hard not to bump news n stuff that I’m not trying to see rn. It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep going. love u. and thank u for bein here always.”

Fans immediately began to speculate that the decision was a result ar Ari’s chagrin over the latest rumors about her ex.

That may be the case, but it’s equally possible that she’s simply tired of reading about her latest breakup every time she goes online.

It remains to be seen if Pete and Ariana will attempt a reconciliation, but it’s worth noting that folks who worked with Ariana at NBC this week confirmed that she was not wearing her wedding ring.


Jenelle Evans Attempts to Get David Eason Re-Hired Amidst Abuse Allegations

It's been almost a year since David Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2, and saying he hasn't been missed by viewers would be a massive understatement.

Judging from reactions on social media, most TM2 fans are glad to be rid of David, and they wish Jenelle would follow him out the door.

Evans, however, remains committed to her goal of forcing MTV to rehire her husband.

Needless to say, that campaign is going very poorly so far — especially since Jenelle couldn't have picked a worse time to try and rebuild David's public image.

1. A One-Income Household

Jenelle’s motives for trying to strongarm her MTV bosses into rehiring David are quite simple. After all, it’s not like she’s the type to selflessly accept the role of sole breadwinner.

2. Doubling Down

Jenelle earns upwards of $ 300,000 for each season of Teen Mom 2. David was never paid nearly that much, but no doubt his income served as a nice supplement to Jenelle’s.

3. Even Angrier Than Usual

Jenelle is currently filming the upcoming season of TM2, and she’s made no secret of the fact that she’s very pissed off by her husband’s continued unemployment.

4. One of Her Famous Rants

Jenelle recently bit the hand that feeds her in a major way, unleashing a full-blown social media rant against Teen Mom 2 producers.

5. Boring, Boring, Boring

Jenelle informed fans that the show’s new season will be painfully boring, largely due to the absence of Eason.

6. Really Going In

It seems Jenelle’s bosses aren’t crazy about her attempts to torpedo ratings, but she’s showing no signs of holding back …
