Yup, we seen the double standard before.  Some normal easy going college student with a sense of humor does something that gives the rest of us a chuckle and gets him his 15 minutes of fame.  Shortly there after, he gets arrested and is in deep doodoo.  Never mind that even the construction company he did damage against thought it was funny and got a laugh and free positive publicity out of it to the point they they refused to press changes and want him to do another one.  He’ll soon be paying for his deeds and learning not to drop the soap.

But watch as a celebrity like Jessica Alba defaces property multiple times and she gets away with it with a quick signature on one of her checks.  I wonder how many minutes of work it’ll take for her to make that money back.  Notice that this time around when the property owners shrug off pursuing the matter, the police back off as well.  Maybe Joseph Carnevale should have done a couple of “nude” scenes as well.  I would suggest Jessica Alba cover his legal fees but we all know that won’t happen.
