Puck from 'Real World'

Begins Prison Sentence

for Stalking

11/24/2012 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Real World" legend David "Puck" Rainey is officially locked up in a California state prison ... TMZ has learned -- after he was convicted of stalking a woman earlier this year.

The details surrounding the stalking incident are unclear, but according to court docs, 44-year-old Rainey -- who starred in "Real World: San Francisco" in 1994 -- committed the crime on February 22nd.

The docs don't state explicitly that Rainey had violated a restraining order in the process -- but he was sentenced to more than one year in prison for the crime, which suggests he violated a court order.

Rainey pled "no contest" to the stalking charge in April and was sentenced to two years in prison in September. He turned himself in to Wasco State Prison on November 8th.

Rainey was given 401 days credit for time served, so he's got roughly 300 days to go. 

Once a troublemaker, always a troublemaker.

His father is Wolfgang Puck. Makes you wonder why he wasn't raised better.

Whatever Puck has said or done, pales by comparison with the hate-filled, rape-wishes I have read here, allegedly written by upstanding, respectable role models who make judgements based on many hours of watching tv. Wishing rape, misery and death on someone who is neither a rapist nor a murderer, is shameful, and could be termed evil. I hope Puck survives to thrive again.

check out "Two-Frat Solution" on youtube. It's a new web series that makes fun of Mel Gibson, and also spoofs the Trayvon Martin inicident, and the israeli/palestinian conflict.

Puck has many classic characteristics of a childhood rape victim, which makes it even more disgusting that anyone's wishing he be raped in prison. Despite his many bad traits, he's clearly a smart dude, even if his negative view of the world has been severely warped and hasn't exactly served him well. He can change if he ever decides he wants to. Never give up on people.

Well I think that they missed the mark in trying to understand this man. Like Mike the Situation, everyone was sick of him and was against him. Mike decided to change his ways and stick it out, but Puck just ran out like he had other places to be.

That San Francisco season was so boring that I couldn't really watch it. Most of the characters were like dry sticks in the mud while Puck was mad at the world. It was just an annoying mix of people. I think it would have been more interesting to ask him why he thought he could put his fingers in the peanut butter. Instead it turned into a clinical issue of how psychological stress can wear out an AIDs patient.

No one on that show even seemed to be actually mad at him, they were just saying that they were sick of him. Maybe if they got mad it would have been interesting. They were like they had no use for him. They liked him but were sick of him. It is annoying.

Ick, never did like this guy, he was just weird in a really bad way. Not surprised a bit that he got in trouble for stalking. I don't know why, but every time I see this guy's face, I just remember the peanut butter on the show, yucky.
