Food Network Chef: Here's Why I Got Arrested...

2/10/2010 9:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Food Network Chef:  Beau MacMillan Beau MacMillan -- one of the stars of Food Network's "Worst Cooks in America" -- was arrested in Arizona on Sunday for an outstanding warrant, but according to Beau ... it's all just a big misunderstanding.

Beau tells TMZ he was pulled over on Sunday in Scottsdale for failing to come to a complete stop at a red light, when cops noticed he had a warrant out for his arrest.

Turns out Beau was busted by a traffic enforcement camera back in January -- but he claims he never got the ticket in the mail because he just moved in to a new house.

Beau says he was in New York filming promos for the Food Network when he unknowingly missed his court date on February 2 -- so a misdemeanor warrant was issued for his arrest for failure to appear.

Beau says he was booked for the warrant and released within 20 minutes, and said, "You gotta keep it in under 55 in Arizona."

Beau's arrest was first reported by Scottsdale Arizona News.

lol same thing happend to my boyfriend, exept we found out about the warrant after I got pulled over for Driving While Brown (i can usually count on his blonde hair to not get us pulled over when a cop drives by, but not that day). Thats when he got arrested for a warrant we knew nothing about. I know i submitted change of address forms as well as updated both of our drivers license info at the adot website. Damn fools, I hope your court fees dont hurt your pocket, like they did ours. Good luck buddy

@ Thats arizona for you

Yeah, because cops have enough time to pull over every "brown" person in AZ. And everyone has warrants they don't know about. Suuuuuuuuuuure....

Another compelling argument for banning red light cameras! Outrageous.

55 mph is unsafe speed. Safest is at 60 or 70. Car cruises better. I HATE 55 MPH... too slow drivers, congestion and rude tailgaters.

Your bad cooking got you arrested!! *
Step 1:Put your pot on the stove, and put the heat up to medium high.
Step 2:Add 2 to 3 tbsp. of vegetable oil. Roll around the pot to coat the bottom. Add one popcorn kernel.
Step 3:When oil starts to smoke, or when the one kernel pops, the pot it is ready.
Step 4:Pour in one cup of popcorn kernels. Let them heat up, shaking the pot gently over the flame, back and forth to roll the kernels around. When one pops, put the lid on.
Step 5:Continue shaking as the popping continues, shaking pot quickly across the burner. Don't stop shaking the pot or the popcorn will burn.When the pops start slowing down (or the lid starts rising off), take the popcorn off the burner, turning off the burner.
Step 6:Sprinkle the popcorn with salt, tossing the popcorn by gently lifting the pot up and down. Enjoy. Add melted butter, if you're inclined.

Red light tickets are ridiculous and DO NOT make the roads safer. Cops getting off their butt at Dunkin Donuts, however, does work.
