AL Gore, III , the associate publisher of GOOD, was arrested early this morning in Laguna Nigel. From the AP:

Al Gore III, 24, was driving a blue Toyota Prius about 100 mph on the San Diego Freeway when he was pulled over at about 2:15 a.m., Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.

The deputies said they smelled marijuana and searched the car, Amormino said. They found less than an ounce of marijuana along with Xanax, Valium, Vicodin and Adderall, which is used for attention deficit disorder, he said.

The blogosphere is agog. Who knew a Prius could do 100 mph?

There’s a backstory, with several versions.

Is this famous kid story going to get as much media attention as the hard-partying Bush twins?
