An American Idol contestant from the current season of the popular show that climbed the ranks to finish in third place is the topic of discussion all over the web after he was eliminated from the show, leaving only two contestants remaining. Lee Dewyze and Crystal Bowersox will battle it out for the chance to claim the winning spot on season 9 of American Idol. His departure has left some people searching more deeply about his background, which as a quick search reveals is far from exemplary. Casey James has had prior arrests in both 2001 and 2002 related to drunk driving, for which he served time. He has also been in trouble with the law for driving with a suspended license and in a reckless manner. There is no denying that there is pattern in this former star’s checkered past. Just prior to joining the American Idol cast, James had spent time in jail for a reckless driving charge.
James failed to woo American Idol judges in his last performance, and his departure from the show doesn’t seem to be particularly shocking. The latest issue of Star magazine features a mugshot of Casey James from the time of his last arrest. You can pick up a copy to view it for yourself.
