American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert was arrested Thursday along with his boyfriend after the two were involved in a fight outside a bar in Finland.
Lambert and his Finnish boyfriend Sauli Koskinen were taken to jail early Thursday morning and held in custody while Helsinki police investigated possible assault offenses, according to the Hollywood Reporter. A police investigator was quoted as saying both men were released from jail after being interrogated about the incident.
According to media reports in Finland, the two men began arguing in a back room of Helsinki's famous gay club DTM and were kicked out of the club when the fight intensified. The fighting then continued outside on the street and police were called to the scene.
Lambert reportedly arrived in Finland on Monday to celebrate Christmas with Koskinen, who is a local reality star after winning the Finnish version of Big Brother. It was unclear how long Lambert planned to stay in Finland and whether he would face any charges from the incident.
The singer referenced the arrest in a tweet hinting that the couple had gotten over the incident: "Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it. :)"
Koskinen also commented on the incident on his personal blog: "Fame is not easy, but celebrities are just human. Love is not always easy either, but it's forever." He added that the "hangover is gone already" and "by the way, paparazzi, police stations have back doors, too -- so go home already."
