Former ‘A-List: Dallas’ cast member arrested for theft at NorthPark

Chase Hutchison

The A-List: Dallas may no longer be on TV, but that hasn’t prevented the cast members from gossiping.

Gay Republican Taylor Garrett — known for filing his own police reports — tipped off Dallas Voice that fellow Dallas A-Lister Chase Hutchison was recently caught playing klepto at NorthPark Center.

And, indeed, court records indicate that the gay mortgage broker featured in Logo’s gay reality show was arrested earlier this month for stealing, as his mug shot at right confirms.

Hutchison was seen taking two green scarves valued at $530 each from Barneys New York on Nov. 13 and leaving the store without paying around 8 p.m., according to a Dallas police report.

He was then arrested for a theft of more than $500 but less than $1,500, a class-A misdemeanor. He was released the next day on a $1,000 bond. His first court date is set for Dec. 18.

Hutchison faces up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $4,000.

We know that Garrett was obviously angry with Hutchison for cozying up to cowboy Levi Crocker while the two were trying to reconnect by dating again, though only Garrett thought it was exclusive. But haven’t those bad feelings calmed down by now?

Don’t forget the thrilling season finale of “The A-List: Dallas,” with guest star Ann Coulter

For those who love to hate A-List: Dallas, you’ll either be sad or glad to see the show’s season come to an end tonight. And by the previews, boy does it. Taylor Garrett needles at the community with his friendly exchange with conservative pundit Ann Coulter. Castmate Chase Hutchison is naturally infuriated but then also has to deal with Garrett lip-locking on his sorta beau Levi Crocker. As the season comes to a close, I’m fascinated that we never got to see the incident that happened at Jack’s Backyard. Remember this whole to-do?

I tweeted a couple of the A-Listers about what to expect on tonight’s episode. Hutchison was kind enough to reply.

“Tonight’s episode is definitely going to piss a lot of people off, including myself,” he tweeted back. “Everything comes to a head tonight; relationships, politics, friendships… And having Ann Coulter being part of the show was enough to make my blood boil with Taylor. But I do like that very different views are being shown, as much as some of those views disgust me. It will be worth watching for sure.”

Fellow reality star, Drew Ginsburg from Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas chimed in as well with his response to tonight’s episode.

“Supporting Ann Coulter is a like a Jew supporting the Nazis,” he tweeted.

The Hayyy List is hosting a watch party tonight with cast member James Doyle at Axiom Sushi, or you can seethe or snicker on your own. Either way, here’s the preview clip after the jump to get you going before tonight’s episode.

WATCH: “A-List: Dallas” Christmas Frolics

Pretty much all I can say to this is “Wow.” Someone must really love the A-List:Dallas peeps which is proof positive in this video. Master Marky X uploaded this compilation today of JibJab videos using the cast of the Logo show. You might notice the apparent absence of Taylor Garrett. On the video’s page, X wrote that “other guy not available – having lunch with GoProud & Ann Coulter.” Otherwise, Levi, Ashley, Chase, Philip and James are all having a wonderful Christmastime with clips that have them cast in It’s a Wonderful Life (the very-abridged version), The Buttcracker and in full garb singing “Feliz Navidad.”

It’s a long watch at 12 minutes, but kind of hard not to take a few peeks. Just fast forward through it. You’ll get the idea.

Levi Crocker claims he was attacked in OKC by 4 gays who hate ‘The A-List: Dallas’

If you’re heading to tonight’s A-List: Dallas watch party at Axiom, you might ask host and cast member Levi Crocker if his head is feeling any better. Gay blogs have been buzzing about Crocker’s tweets from the Thanksgiving weekend in which he claimed he was assaulted in a bar in Oklahoma City. Crocker now seems to be downplaying the incident, but not before posting this pic of what looks like a bloodied scalp after he was apparently hit with a bar stool. Crocker claims the attack was perpetrated by four gay people whose motive was the fact that they don’t like the show.

According to the Oklahoma City Police Department, there is no record of Crocker filing a report about the incident. I tweeted Crocker seeking more info. “I decided to leave this subject alone for now,” he responded earlier today.

This incident comes on the heels of fellow cast member Taylor Garrett’s claims that he was assaulted in Oak Lawn earlier this month.

Crocker’s tweets are after the jump.

Dallas police: 2nd rock was found outside ‘A-List: Dallas’ cast member Taylor Garrett’s apartment

Taylor Garrett

Two rocks with threatening notes attached — not one — were found last week outside a broken window at the Design District apartment of Taylor Garrett, a gay Republican cast member from the The A-List Dallas.

Laura Martin, LGBT liaison officer for the Dallas Police Department, said today that a porter at the complex found the first rock in some mulch in the bushes. The porter looked up and saw broken glass on the door to Garrett’s second-floor balcony. The porter notified the apartment manager, who contacted a Dallas police officer who lives at the complex. It’s unclear when the porter actually found the rock, Martin said, but records show the officer filed his report last Friday morning and placed the rock into evidence.

Martin said the officer wasn’t initially able to contact Garrett, who has said he returned late last Thursday from Los Angeles, where he’d been filming for The A List. When someone from the complex finally got ahold of Garrett, they went onto the balcony and discovered a second rock with a similar note attached. They also discovered that the double-pane glass window was broken only halfway through, Martin said.

UPDATE: Dallas police release report filed Friday by Taylor Garrett’s apartment complex

The other day we told you how Taylor Garrett, the gay Republican cast member from The A-List Dallas, had alleged on Twitter that a “liberal” threw a rock (above) through a window at his Dallas apartment, with a note attached calling him “an embarrassment to the gay community” and “a pathetic mother fucking twink.”

We also told you that gay blogger Joe Jervis was questioning Garrett’s report, accusing him of a publicity stunt in advance of Monday’s premiere of The A-List: Dallas. Jervis’ suspicions were fueled by the deletion of Garrett’s original tweet about the incident, along with the fact that no one could find any record of a police report having been filed.

Since then, however, we’ve learned that a report was filed with the Dallas Police Department on Friday, Oct. 7 — the same day Garrett sent out his initial tweet. Here’s a screen grab of Garrett’s archived tweet from yfrog.com.

Some gay bloggers are now reporting that Garrett only filed a police report “four days later” — after they began to question his account. However, Instant Tea has obtained a copy of the police report that was filed Friday by someone at Garrett’s complex, which is in the Dallas Design District.
