New column at FilmStew

Former E! Online columnist Andy Jones today begins a new weekly gig for about party life. It's called SWAG: See Where Andy Goes. In the first installment, he writes about wrestling over a leather goodie bag at the Independent Spirit Awards party at Shutters and almost being arrested. He writes that the cops let him go, since "I'm gay. We don't hit women, period, which I repeat to the awfully cute young officer, who chuckled and sent me on my way... home. I should have beat her up for calling me the F-word, but, as I said, we don't hit women."
