Rush Limbaugh, radio host, returns from a vacation in the Dominican Republic, and is detained at Palm Beach International Airport for 3.5 hours when prescription bottles labeled Viagra in someone else's name are found.

The initial reports stated Limbaugh was held for having prescription drugs (Viagra) in someone else's name. Illegal, and in this case, it was in Limbaugh's physician's name. Limbaugh's attorney claimed that was done for "privacy purposes."

The reports change to Limbaugh Detained for Drugs at Airport. Now we're not sure what was in those Viagra-labeled bottles.
Well, well, well.

Limbaugh continues to make ass out of self. Talking about the incident on his radio show, says "I had a great time in the Dominican Republic. Wish I could tell you about it."
Maybe you will, in a court of law.

The press starts reporting "Limbaugh Under New Investigation." They also enjoy including in their reports that Viagra "treats erectile dysfunction." And news outlets are also starting to report that while Florida law permits doctors to write prescriptions in a third party's name (as long as all parties are aware and is documented in the doctor's files), Limbaugh and/or his doctor did not follow these strictures.
Why does Limbaugh take Viagra and Oxycontin together?
To keep from rolling out of bed.
