An Unbroken Series of Successful Gestures
Updated after the jump
Last week, The New York Post came out with an incendiary item about the high-flying socialite (and New York Observer Gatsbaby) Tabber Benedict, who had allegedly thrown himself a “going-away” party at Number 8 on the night before he was actually due to be sentenced in court for his 2011 DUI.
But according to the gossip site Scallywag & Vagabond, the attack might have been more personal than just a good tip from Justin Ross Lee…and that the Post‘s author, Tara Palmeri, had it out for Mr. Benedict for another reason.
As November ended, Tabber Benedict, a “Gatsbaby” featured in a June, 2012 report in The Observer, pleaded guilty in a Suffolk County court to ten charges related to a drunk-driving incident on July 4, 2011. According to a report in Newsday, Mr. Benedict, a 35-year-old corporate attorney, will lose his law license and will serve time in jail.
Suffolk County D.A. Thomas Spota issued a statement about Mr. Benedict’s plea that called the penalties “completely proportional” to the crime.
Julien Chabbott, the co-founder of the now-defunct smartphone app Line Snob, was arrested and charged with felony assault after he allegedly drove over Police Officer Felix Recio‘s foot early Saturday evening.
“He had a concussion and some other injuries,” said Mr. Heller, who claimed Mr. Chabbott had to be taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment after his arrest.
