80-Year-Old Drag Queen Arrested After Scuffle With Police

Portland, Ore.'s most famous drag queen was taken from the stage and put in jail after police showed up at the Darcelle XV nightclub.

Performer Darcelle said there was "all of this commotion all of a sudden" that could be seen from the stage, and so the 80-year-old drag queen got in the middle of things, admitting to pushing a man who seemed to be causing trouble. It turns out he was from Oregon's Liquor Control Commission.

"Everybody knew, there goes Darcelle arrested," the performer told NWCN. "I'm not a menace to society."

Watch Darcelle, who is Walter Cole when not in drag, talk about what happened in the video below.
