This isn’t a joke, it was an article in Us Weekly.
Us Weekly carries one small article about this incident, written by their writer Mark Cina. (May 9, 2005, Page 45) The article further says that she failed to appear in court and that her father challenged someone to a boxing match for saying she needs help.
How did this get left out of the media to the extent that it did? Sounds amazing.
Us Weekly does not seem to have an archive of their old articles online for me to link to (let me know if you find different).
