Perez’s Puncher A Probie?

You guys like that alliteration?

Polo Molina, the man who socked Perez Hilton, might be facing a whole lot of trouble.  So far, his fight with Perez was really more headlines than it was legal problems.  But now it’s been revealed that Mr. Molina is on probation for a DUI.  Yeah, not good.  A judge could definitely consider this altercation a violation of his probation and toss him in the slammer for 6 months.

So, for all the huffing and puffing about Perez Hilton, his lawsuit might actually put this guy away for a long while.  And he thought Will.I.Am was mad at him before.
