That ’70s Show’s’ Lisa Robin Kelly Arrested: Why the Web Is Buzzing
News that the actress Lisa Robin Kelly — who played Laurie, the mean
older sister to the main character Eric Forman (Topher Grace) in “That
’70s Show” — was arrested on a felony spousal abuse charge last
weekend sent the Web buzzing.
Lookups on “that 70s show arrest” topped Yahoo! today. And Twitter
comments buzzed over the downfall of the once-glamorous blonde’s
shocking look. “Oh. My.” Posted one fan. “Terrifying mug shot.”
Another added, “Remember Eric’s sister on ‘That 70’s Show’? Want to
see how weird-looking she got?”
The actress was mysteriously replaced in Season 6 of the show, and
hasn’t done much acting since 2005. Kelly was taken to the Los Angeles
County Sheriff’s Department at 12:50 AM Saturday and is being held on
$50,000 bail. The details of the incident are unclear, as is the
identity of Kelly’s spouse.
Fans of the show who remember the blond actress will be shocked by her
mug shot, which shows a bruised and wild-eyed woman.
This is not the first time the 42-year-old has had a run-in with the
law. In 2010, Kelly was arrested and charged with a DUI; she paid a
fine and was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation.
