Robert Blake Threatens Cops, Yells At Piers Morgan During Interview

After Piers Morgan took over for Larry King, the hostís biggest critics accused him of being too soft and not asking interesting questions. Whether you believe that or not, there was nothing generic, boring or hum-drum about his interview with Robert Blake last night. More than a decade after being accused of murdering his wife, the former Our Gang star appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight and shocked fans by unleashing an absolute torrent of hate.
From Morgan himself, who he oddly referred to as ďCharlie PotatoesĒ, to his deceased wife to the cops who arrested him, Blake left no stone unturned and no enemy without a confrontation. He was there to discuss his new book Tales Of A Rascal, but not surprisingly, the interview wound up focusing more on his wifeís strange murder and all the fallout from that.
The clip below features Blake in one of his stranger rants, pausing mid-sentence, turning to the camera and direct addressing the police officers who wanted him to die in jail, before simply picking up like nothing strange happened. Take a watch belowÖ
Itís easy to see why Blake is so frustrated. Heís broke and has spent the last decade plus of his life constantly telling people he didnít murder his wife. Heís been convicted in civil court and the court of public opinion. Itís been a long fall from grace, but the way I see it, at least heís out there battling and hasnít given up.
