Real news for Stewart: Wife arrested
Jon Stewart could be forgiven if he arrived a little late to yesterday's taping of "The Daily Show." He was busy getting his wife, Tracey McShane, out of jail. The normally wisecracking comic looked understandably anxious as he waited while his handcuffed sweetheart spent close to five hours being booked for driving with a suspended license.
McShane, 36, was driving through Central Park around 11 a.m. when she was pulled over for a moving violation, police confirmed to us.
Stewart's spokesman, Matt Labov, said: "She wasn't speeding. But the police discovered that she had a suspended license. She didn't even realize it. She paid a ticket last week. But apparently her check hadn't been processed."
Following procedure, cops impounded her car, cuffed her, loaded her into a squad car and took her to Central Booking.
There, police sources said, she was fingerprinted, posed for a mug shot and held while cops checked to see if there were any outstanding warrants for the arrest of the mother of 8-month-old Nathan Stewart....(excerpt)
How can one not know that one's license to drive has been suspended? Isn't that a bit like leaving the house without shoes, on and then being pulled over for being barefoot, only to be astonished at the lack of shoes?
>>>How can one not know that one's license to drive has been suspended?<<<
If one is a celeb, or married to a celeb, the rules don't apply therefore one need not know or care that one's license has been suspended!
Seems a little extreme for a suspended license. Geez, about a third of the people driving around our dusty little central valley town don't even have licenses.
For a license violation?
Oh not THAT bad . . .
C'mon now, I'm no big fan of Jon Stewart but capping on his wife's looks is a but much. Especially when it's such a lousy picture that she could be a fox and you couldn't tell with that shot.
Jon "Stewart"'s wife Tracey "MCShane"? Not even a hyphen now?
Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracy, celebrate at the Governor's Ball after the Emmy Awards. His show "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" won for both outstanding writing for a variety, music or comedy program and outstanding variety, music and comedy series.
Why, don't you know who I am? Licenses are for the rabble.
...Maybe, but if I was a cop and knew she was married to Jon Steward I'd have Rodney Kinged her for plain stupidity if nothing else!
SHE'S A MENACE TO SOCIETY! But hey, at least the cops weren't PROFILING!
So no it's not suprising at all this happened.
I guess you've never kept a car in New York.
Once we received a threatening summons for an unpaid parking fine. We called and a clerk explained that the ticket had "probably blown off the windshield." She suggested that in the future we call periodically to check on citations.
She had an unpaid ticket. Actually, she paid it, but the check hasn't cleared. Voila...handcuffs. Glad the cops are going after the heavy hitters.
Mourning the loss of the Orange Gates?
Just left Rather's penthouse?
Refused to watch her husband on Comedy Central at 11 PM, evidently.
Where was Jon? Inquiring minds don't want to know......
yeah,...sorry she didn't do something that landed her downtown,...I've heard that whatever you've been wearing,...well, just burn 'em
I had a arrest warrant out on me for an unpaid parking ticket I didn't even know I'd been given. A $2 fine cost $55, and I waited while the magistrate put out the radio call to cancel the arrest warrant on me.
Quite a bizarre feeling, really.
You don't reckon she gave the officer some smart a$$'d lip....do ya???
Consider that in Illinois, your license can be suspended if your car hasn't passed it's Illinois EPA inspection (either it failed, or you didn't take it in). Now, the story says that she sent in a check but that it hadn't been processed yet. Say she has a situation like this, where her license was suspended not because of DUI or a traffic violation, but because of an administrative process. If her state of residence is as efficient as Illinois, she might have mailed the check in a month ago and figured that "hey, they'll get it processed in a month", only to find out that it's been sitting on someone's desk until the highly efficient employees of the Secretary of State get around to dealing with it. Presuming it hasn't fallen on the floor, or something such.
My mom was arrested for overdue library fines that weren't paid when she was pulled over for a speeding ticket. My brother and I were 10 and 12. It was very scary!
My license had been suspended for 6 months before I found out. Actually, my insurance company found out and told me (you BET they told me!).
Judging from this picture, I say she married for love!
LOL...cruel man, cruel!
Nope. The state trooper told me he couldn't let me drive off with a suspended license. Of course he also told me if I were to wait until he went down the road and then drove off there wasn't much he could do but also recommended getting the license fixed the next day which I did.
No freakin way...That looks like his mother!
"Following procedure, cops impounded her car, cuffed her, loaded her into a squad car and took her to Central Booking."
For a license violation?
Do you know how many times a cop is shot and/or killed from a routine traffic stop? Stewart's wife wasn't the violent type, but who can take a chance?
That analogy leaves me speechless
I had a suspended license once & didn't know it. I found out by getting pulled over for an illegal turn. Luckily, the officer let me go and I paid the fine.
It has happened to me and several people I know. (Driving with a suspended liscence with no knowledge thereof). Arresting her for this is a bit extreme IMHO.
I think arrest is a little harsh. My point was how its possible to have a suspended license and not know it. Anyway, if this was Rush's wife,...uh, I mean ex-wife, I suspect the reaction would be a wee bit different.
'"Following procedure, cops impounded her car, cuffed her, loaded her into a squad car and took her to Central Booking."

Maybe, but the exact same procedeure was used on me when I got pulled over for driving with a suspended license. I had to call someone to bail me out too. What's worse is it was over a $4 parking ticket. Total cost $44. $4 for the ticket, $40 for "court costs". That's what they cuffed me and threw me in a holding cell for. $44.
Not that hard at all. My youngest son's friend received a ticket for a speeding. He hired and attorney to get the ticket worked down to a non-moving violation. The court date came and went. The attorney had failed to take care of the matter. The court sent a letter and a new court date to the kid. He took the letter to the attorney and ask about it. The attorney told the kid he had already taken care of the matter. The kid was driving around with a suspended license after the second court date passed. He also had a bench warrant issued for him. The lawyer finally got off of his butt and cleared the matter for the kid.
That is not his wife.
That picture is so disturbing...
Huh...I always figured he was a homosexual.
If she had been an illegal alien they would have just let her go.
Here come the foxes, because we are two wild and crazy guys!
