LAT Corrections: Featuring Courtney Love!

courtneyl.jpgFrom today’s paper:

Courtney Love – An article in Saturday’s California section about musician Courtney Love incorrectly reported that Love was arrested in October 2003 for forcing her way into the home of her former manager and boyfriend and attacking a female musician sleeping there. The article also reported incorrectly that on the same date, police arrived to find Love in the street, that she tested positive for cocaine and opiates, and that paramedics went to her Beverly Hills home, where she was treated for what appeared to be a painkiller overdose.

The correct version of events is as follows:

In October 2003, Love was arrested at the home of her former manager after an alleged break-in. She tested positive for cocaine and opiates. Hours later, paramedics were called to Love’s house, where she was treated for an apparent painkiller overdose.

In April 2004, Love was accused of throwing a bottle at a woman she reportedly found asleep on the couch of her former boyfriend and manager. Authorities filed charges against Love several months after the incident — police were not called to the home – and Love ultimately pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of assault with a deadly weapon.

Thanks for clearing that up! I’d love to know if this Special Celebrity Correction was prompted by Love (or her representatives) herself…
