Busey was driving on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu when cops pulled him over ... because they were told he was driving drunk.

Turns out ... cops got the tip from a couple who claimed they saw Busey driving his Mercedes erratically.

When cops went after Busey's car the couple followed and parked behind the cop car when Busey was stopped.

Cops determined Busey "was perfectly sober" and then noticed the couple -- Patrice Karst and Mark Abel -- were taking pictures of the action. 

According to deputies, the couple identified themselves as members of the press.  Cops asked them to stop taking photos, but they refused.

The L.A. County Sheriff's deputies arrested the couple for obstructing a peace officer in his duties. Patrice was also charged with possession of marijuana.

I think you mean obstructing a police officer or is it disrupting the peace copy editors? :)

This woman is a marginally known new-age author who is part of an "Indigo Children" 2012 Doomsday cult and has been trying to get an oddball spirituality movie made for over 10 years now. She is a complete loon and makes Gary Busey look like an economics professor by comparison.

This woman is a crazy new-age author type who has a few oddball books out and has been trying to produce her own film for about 15 years now. She is a complete loon who makes Gary Busey seem like a stiff-collared bank manager by comparison.

Lolololololololololololol!!! You really don't want to piss off Gary Busey & getting the cops to pull him over as a DUI so they could get pics to sell to the gossip sitea? Enterprising, but stupid, very, very stupid lol!!! Especially if you're a little doped up yourself and carrying marijuana on your body lol!!
I mean come on anyone with brain cell had to know once the cops found out he was ok they would look back at the complainants and already having had their time wasted, they're not going to be happy lol!! I'm just surprised it wasn't a full body cavity search for further drugs as well as a full pat down lol!!

I think their pictures say it all:) Skidmarks on humanity. Busey's problems started with the head injury from his motorcycle accident. He really is a nice fellow and its so sad that someone would do that to him. I am really tired of all the buzzards trying to make money off of celebrities. It's called get a job like the rest of us. Nothing wrong with good hard labor.

Truth Hurts    

Messed up what they did, but I don't see how taking a picture is obstructing a "peace" officer. A cop or anyone else has no reason to expect privacy out in public. Does this "peace" officer report to a shop lifting case and order the store to turn off their cameras?

Arrest the cop for being a dummy and arrest the couple for making up BS.
