Dom Irrera arrested for DUI

Philly-raised comedian Dom Irrera was arrested early yesterday in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence. Irrera was stopped at 12:50 a.m. and taken to a North Hollywood police station where he was being held on $5,000 bail, according to a TMZ.com report. An LAPD spokesman confirmed yesterday that Irrera had made bail and was released. The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office yesterday said that "no information was available on a filing decision" as to a court date. Irrera, who long performed at the Laff House (221 South) and more recently played the TLA and the Borgata in Atlantic City, did not return a voice mail we left at his home yesterday. The voice mail on his cell phone was full. The comedian, once a teacher at Most Blessed Sacrament parish school in Southwest Philly, credits Rodney Dangerfield with giving him his big break in an HBO stand-up special. Irrera's many credits include "The Big Lebowski," an episode of "Seinfeld" and spots on Damon Wayans' show, "My Wife & Kids."
