Holy CRAP. Chris? HOLY CRAP.

LA radio host arrested on suspicion of kidnapping

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — A radio host and Hollywood music consultant was released on $1 million bail after being arrested at a nightclub for investigation of drugging and attempting to kidnap a 14-year-old girl, police said Sunday.

Chris Douridas, a KCRW-FM disk jockey, was arrested Jan. 6 outside a Santa Monica nightclub after witnesses reportedly saw him put a substance in the unidentified girl’s drink and carry her out of the club, said Santa Monica police Sergeant Jay Trisler.

The girl became ill and was treated at a local hospital before being released, Trisler said. It was unclear why she was inside the club.

County prosecutors were still gathering evidence in the case and awaiting toxicology results before deciding whether to charge Douridas, Eva Jabber, a deputy district attorney, told the Los Angeles Times.

An e-mail sent to Douridas, 43, of Pacific Palisades was not immediately returned Sunday night, and phone numbers listed under his name were disconnected. A message left with KCRW also was not returned.

A second man, whose name was not released, was also arrested as a possible accomplice to Douridas, Trisler said.

Douridas hosts KCRW’s “New Ground,” a Saturday program featuring new music. He’s also a music supervisor and consultant for film and television. He helped compile the soundtracks for movies such as “Shrek 2,” “As Good As It Gets” and “Grosse Pointe Blank.”

Douridas was nominated for a Grammy for his work on the soundtrack to “American Beauty.”

He also was a one time host for the PBS series “Sessions at West 54th Street.”

  1. I have a friend who works for one of the news services send that to me last night. I am really having a hard time believing that he did that. The whole thing is fishy, especially this part:
    “County prosecutors were still gathering evidence in the case and awaiting toxicology results before deciding whether to charge Douridas, Eva Jabber, a deputy district attorney, told the Los Angeles Times.”

    1. Well I certainly hope it’s a fuckup of some kind. The alternative is stomach-churning. It reminds me of the genius Java guy from Disney who got nailed for meeting underage boys for sex.
      Anyone’s capable of it! I hope Chris didn’t do it though.
      Also: “Eva Jabber”.

  2. Huh
    Strange.
    I don’t know Douridas.
    Your post, plus the Who Watches the Watchers post on Bruce Schneier’s blog the same day seem to be very much related. I wish I had a succinct way of explaining why. My brain came up with the term “Technologies of Violation.” Other data points : the trading of torture and war pictures for smut by the US military.

  3. Chris? U BLEW IT!
    F’N SCUM. PERV. LOSER. DUMBASS! LOOK AT OLDER WOMEN. LIKE 18-19(KIDDING) IS BETTER THAN 14. P-I-G!

    I knew Chris in college. He had a reputation for being into drugs and he also had quite the sexual appetite. One of his girlfriends showed me a bite mark on her inner thigh at rehersal one night, which she attributed to Chris.
    Years later in Hollywood he came into the office where I was working for a meeting, and a friend told me, “Hey, I know that guy, he asked one of my friends to get him some ruffies.” I thought that was weird but I’ve always liked Chris so I just sort of forgot about it until this latest incident.
    Chris is no angel, so although I was shocked to read about it I can’t say I’m surprised. I think he probably did it.
