The Associated Press Gets Their Dursts Mixed Up
On Monday, this crossed the AP wire:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) – A Louisiana State Police trooper says millionaire Robert Durst has been booked on weapons charges in that state – on top of a first-degree murder charge lodged by Los Angeles authorities. Trooper Melissa Matey told the Associated Press that an arrest warrant was issued for the former Limp Bizkit frontman and he was rebooked in the Orleans Parish Jail on Monday under two new charges.
Good try, AP, but you actually meant the 71 year-old millionaire who was the subject of The Jinx, that HBO documentary.
The agency soon discovered their mistake and make a correction. The story can be found here.
