Breaking (Sort of): Have you heard the one about Dave Chappelle being a guest at the Prince William County, Va. jail or hospital? Thanks to a heads-up from one early a.m. commenter (see below), I just got off the phone with a jail spokesperson and got an answer on whether or not the comic has indeed been a guest since Saturday (as reported this morning on radio station DC101 and over at No, he's not there, says the rep. Also, as of 11:28 a.m. ET, a Prince William hospital spokesperson said Federal law prevents her from confirming or denying whether a person is a patient. If you hear any additional reports, share them below or e-mail me at

Update, 4:10 p.m. ET: (Careful at-work linkers, TMZ's headline is a little explicit) apparently reached a rep for Dave Chappelle, who confirmed that he was indeed admitted to a hospital this weekend. From TMZ: "The rep says Dave went to the emergency room for 'physical exhaustion.' She says he was treated with 'food, water and sleep' for about 12 hours and then went home."

Say What?
