MTV Reality Star Was Busted in West Palm by Undercover Cop Prostitute

Sadly, no, it was not Whitney (left), nor her two co-stars but a member of The City supporting cast known as "Nevan," the understanding cousin of Whitney Olivia (seen above, mugging on the right). To the West Palm Beach police department he's James Nevan Donahue. In February 2007 West Palm officers arrested Donahue on charges he solicited what he thought was a street prostitute while driving his red Jeep Cherokee.

Jump for the juiciest details, including Nevan's mug and a reference to "Shiny black underwear."

According to the police report posted on The Smoking Gun, on February 26, 2007, Donahue approached officer Lori Colombino. She notes in the report that Donahue's green rhinestone belt buckle was undone and his pants were unbuttoned and unzipped and she could see his "shiny black underwear."

The report states that Donahue was wearing a "white cheetah shirt" when he requested oral sex, and in exchange he was willing to give the undercover officer pills of Oxycontin, the powerful and highly addictive pain killer.

The secondary cast member of the spinoff of The Hills and Laguna Beach pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and was fined and sentenced to community service.

This was Donahue's third arrest. The first one, in 2001, was for possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arrested again in 2006.

In case you missed any piece of that, let's recap: wearing a white cheetah shirt, green rhinestone belt buckle (unbuckled), unbuttoned pants, and shiny back underwear, this guy allegedly approached a cop and asked her for oral sex in exchange for powerful prescription medication.

In this regrettable New York Times fashion blog, Donahue is pinpointed as exactly the kind of rich kid who dresses like he's poor that so epitomizes an entire subculture of New Yorkers.
