'RuPaul's Drag Race' Contestant Defies DUI Judge ... I'm Filming in L.A., Baby!!!

10/6/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

An upcoming "RuPaul's Drag Race" contestant is thumbing his nose at the judge in his DUI case by going to werrrrk in Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us Andrew Bryson -- whose drag name is Blair St. Clair -- is currently taping in L.A. as a contestant for season 10 of 'Drag Race.' That's in clear violation of a court order stating he must stay in Indiana following a DUI bust this year.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, St. Clair was pulled over in March in Fort Wayne, IN and blew a .195 -- more than twice the legal limit! We checked and the judge's order banning his out-of-state travel is still in place.

It's a catch 22 for "Blair" -- winning the show could unlock a showbiz career, but doing the show at all could land his ass in a jail cell. We made a call to VH1, but no word back yet.

'Ink Masters' Star Chris Blinston Arrested for Allegedly Strangling 13-Year-Old Daughter

EXCLUSIVE

"Ink Masters" star Chris Blinston allegedly used both hands to choke his 13-year-old daughter so hard he squeezed off her airway ...  leaving her terrified and gasping for air.

Blinston's daughter told a therapist Blinston choked her Tuesday following an argument at his house during a custody visit. She told the therapist her dad strangled her twice Tuesday and that triggered a police investigation.

According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- the daughter says Blinston grabbed her around the neck and squeezed off her airway and was unable to breathe for 10 seconds. When he finally let go, she told him, "You just choked me, after everything that's gone on the past two days, you're choking me!"

According to the report, Blinston grew furious and again grabbed her by the neck and this time cut off her airway for another 6 to 7 seconds. The report also says Blinston called her cruel names -- including "mental skank." He allegedly told her if she told anyone about the incident there would be hell to pay.

When cops interviewed the girl they noticed marks on her neck, consistent with strangulation. The report noted that she's 5-foot-1, 110 pounds and Blinston is 5-11, 220 pounds.

Blinston was arrested on charges of felony domestic battery by strangulation. He was released from jail Friday after posting $6,000 bond.

Chris wholly denies all of the allegations, and says he looks forward to a full exoneration and intends to reconcile with his daughter.
