We might have a late entry into the new season of Dancing With the Stars! Yep. Meet Arizona State Senator Scott Bundgaard. Paging Bruno and Carrie Ann. Gotta get this guy an agent in Hollywood ASAP!
Here is the lo down.

The clean cut, super conservative, newly elected state senator from Peoria, Arizona, Bundaard allegedly got into a nasty fist fight with his girlfriend inside the car they were driving in after attending a charity dancing event.
Bundgaard and his girlfriend of seven months, a nice Christian gal named Aubry Ballard, were leaving a National Kidney Foundation charity event in Phoenix when literally all hell broke loose between the two. National Kidney Foundation? Are you kidding me? That radical group?
At around 11:20 pm, Phoenix Police arrived at a median on Arizona Highway 51, just south of Cactus Road in north central Phoenix where the car the two were driving had pulled over as their verbal argument had already turned violent.
Bundgaard had already forcefully pulled his gal pal out of the car's driver seat, and well, it was "on" after that. Bundgaard pulled out his "I am a State Senator Get Out of Jail Free Card" and invoked his "Constitutional Right 11th Amendment." Give me a break.
Though both Ms. Ballard and Senator Bundgaard were taken into custody, only the female victim in the domestic violence incident was arrested. Complicated. Not really. Being an elected official has its "privileges" and this case is going to become a national outrage within hours.
Sweet Aubry was arrested, and spends the night in the clink. Today Senator "hot lips" is now on the "defensive" and is about to be run out of town on a Meg Lev High Speed Rail Train.
“We want to jointly apologize for allowing a private matter to interrupt the public – and especially for taking up the valuable time of law enforcement. The police officers who responded deserve thanks for their sensitivity and compassion.We have cared for each other in the past; we wish the best for each other in the future. Like most relationships, ours has had some ups and downs, but it has always been based on our Christian faith and our respect for one another. With that in mind, we intend to go our separate ways now and put what happened Friday night and Saturday in the past. Obviously, we’re both tired and embarrassed. Each of us would like to reclaim some privacy. We hope the media and the public can respect that decision. Thank you for your understanding.”
- Sen. Scott Bundgaard and Aubry Ballard
Are you nuts? You practically killed each other and now you want your "privacy?" OMG. Time for this nut bag to resign FIRST thing Monday morning.
Another statement, this time from Aubry....
"Last night was the absolute worst night of my life. This morning and the hours I spent in jail were equally horrible. To go from putting on a beautiful dress for a great date to a fundraiser to ending up on the side of a freeway? I don’t have another tear left to cry,I’m still trying to get my mind around a few things: Scott’s actions, the 17 hours I spent in jail awaiting processing, my bruises, scrapes and soreness and his statements to the media. I’m not a public figure. Nor am I someone who wants to see her private life made public. At the same time, I value my reputation. I’ve always been a strong believer in the truth. I have a lot of thinking and praying to do before I decide what to do next."
Save your comments for the Jury, and call Attorney Gloria Allred first thing Monday morning.
