New Details: Adam Lambert and Boyfriend Sauli Koskinen “Laughing” Over Alcohol-Induced Brawl That Led to Arrest
Mom was right: Nothing good happens after midnight. As we previously reported, American Idol alum Adam Lambert got into a drunken brawl with his boyfriend, Finnish reality star Sauli Koskinen, at 4:00 a.m. Thursday morning in Helsinki, and the pair was arrested and taken to jail. The couple was partying with friends at gay bar Don’t Tell Mama — but then the merriment took an angry turn.
Finnish newspaper Iltalehtihas the play-by-play: “According to Sauli's Big Brother costar Niko Nousiainen, the two started a verbal argument which they took to the DTM kitchen. All of a sudden Sauli's sister runs out to say that help is needed. When Niko got to the kitchen they were wrestling on the floor.”
The police were called to break up the brawl and Sauli and Adam were taken to the station be interrogated, at which point they reportedly told authorities “they were both fairly intoxicated” and they did not want to press charges against the other. (Curious what their holding cells look like? They're pictured here.) The pair has since been released from jail and the case is now closed, according to Finnish authorities.
Nursing what we can only imagine is a massive hangover, Adam sheepishly tweeted this relationship calculus lesson: “Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it. : )”
Sauli took to his blog to explain that all is fair in love and wrestling: "Love isn't easy, but it's eternal. Thanks Namu [Finnish for “sweetie”], DTM and dear friends for an unforgettable night, sorry for the hassle and worry but everything is really ok!! Hey, the night was ridiculously fun and a hangover disappears quickly!!"
