Former child star, Caillou, was arrested in Quebec on Saturday for shoplifting from Wal-Mart. Security guards stopped Caillou, best known for his seminal work on the hit children’s cartoon series, Caillou, after they noticed suspicious lumps in his yellow T-shirt. He was found to have toilet paper, light bulbs, socks for Rosie, and crayons on his person that he did not pay for.
Witnesses at the scene described a bald young man in handcuffs wearing a yellow T-shirt, blue shorts, and red shoes. He was overheard whining loudly, “But whhhhyyyyy, Mommmmmmyyyyyyy?” and “I caaaaaannnn’tttt” as he was led to a squad car.
Caillou, 21, is no stranger to controversy. He was previously arrested for DUI and attended rehab (with his parents) for addiction to marijuana. While he has failed to replicate the commercial success of Caillou as an adult, he has remained in the spotlight due to a string of high-profile relationships with Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus.
Former best friend Clementine was reached for comment. “I love him and am praying for him,” she said of her former co-star.
Caillou is estranged from his father, who had no comment. He lives with his mother, in her basement, when he’s not living in a van down by the river.
His sister Rosie seems to have chosen a better path after childhood stardom. She is married to Joe from Blue’s Clues and lives in California with their two children.
At press time no court date had been set.
