Bushie brawl sends ‘W’ crew to clink

Josh Brolin, crew members arrested Saturday

Two things are certain: Shreveport, La., probably doesn’t offer much in the way of nightlife, and two, most anybody would need a break from playing Dubya.

Josh Brolin, who stars as the president in Oliver Stone’s feature film “W,” and several other members of the crew were arrested early Saturday morning for interfering with police during a bar brawl in Shreveport, where they are on location.

Police arrived at the Stray Cat Bar and were trying to arrest “W” lighting technician Eric Felland for fighting when Brolin, thesp Jeffrey Wright (who plays Gen. Colin Powell in the pic) and four others got in the way.

Mess with one, mess with all, or something like that.

Felland was charged with resisting arrest, public intoxication and entering and remaining. Brolin and the five others were slapped with the interfering charge, according to the Times of Shreveport, which has links to the police report and middle-of-the-night mugshots.

After arriving at the police station, Brolin, Wright and the others were booked and told they’d have to post cash bonds to be released. Brolin and Wright had to shell out $334 each, while Felland had to fork out more than $700.
