Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



George Lopez joked on the “Ellen DeGeneres Show” about his recent arrest for public intoxication at a casino in Canada.


While appearing on the talk show on Thursday, he told DeGeneres, “The authorities are much politer in Canada. You know, ‘Sir, wake up. Sir, you’re under arrest.’ Very polite. And they told me, they said, ‘Sir, this behavior cannot continue. And if it does continue, we would be honored if you would be mayor of Toronto,'” referring to Rob Ford.

Lopez, who was picked up by the cops for sleeping on the casino’s floor while drunk, explained to DeGeneres, “I was on my way to my room. I just missed it by 35 floors.”

“Just because Mexicans invented tequila doesn’t mean we can handle it,” cracked Lopez, who announced he’s giving up booze for good.
