Al Gore III Arrested For Pot, Prescription Drugs After Being Clocked At 100mph

... in a Prius, though. So everything's okay.

Al Gore's son was in jail today on suspicion of possessing marijuana and prescription drugs when he was pulled over for allegedly driving a Prius 100 mph on an Orange County freeway, a sheriff's spokesman said.

Al Gore III, 24, of Los Angeles, was allegedly driving a blue Toyota Prius south on the San Diego (5) Freeway about 100 mph about 2:15 a.m. when a sheriff's deputy stopped him at the Crown Valley Parkway exit, said Jim Amormino of the Sheriff's Department.

...

Gore was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and booked into the
Inmate Reception Center in Santa Ana on $20,000 bail, he said.
The Prius was towed and stored, he said.

A Gore family spokesman said the spirited lad was "attempting to raise awareness of the green lifestyle" by alerting the public to the little-known fact that Prius can hit 100mph at all.
