Adam Lambert still frozen out by ABC

NEW YORK -- A week after getting dumped from ''Good Morning America,'' glam-rocker Adam Lambert is still in hot water with ABC for his racy performance a couple of days earlier on its ''American Music Awards'' telecast.

Now Lambert says he's been dropped from ABC's ''Jimmy Kimmel Live'' and its ''New Year's Rockin' Eve.''

The network ''decided not to move forward'' with booking Lambert on Kimmel's Dec. 17 show, ABC said in a statement.

Ronnie Wood arrested for possible assault

LONDON -- Aging rocker Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones was released on bail Thursday after being arrested for possible domestic assault.

Wood, known for his stinging guitar riffs and raucous private life, was picked up by police Wednesday evening near his home in Esher in southern England.

''I can confirm that there was an incident last night and that Ronnie Wood was arrested,'' said David Rigg, Wood's spokesman.

The arrest comes on the heels of Wood's highly publicized divorce last month. His marriage collapsed after he started dating a young Russian woman.

Polanski moved before transfer to house arrest

GENEVA -- Authorities acted to protect Roman Polanski from public attention Thursday by moving him from a Zurich area jail to an undisclosed location before his transfer to house arrest in the Swiss Alps.

Polanski was taken from the jail in Winterthur for ''security reasons and personal protection,'' Justice Ministry spokesman Folco Galli said.

Galli declined to say where the 76-year-old director was being held. But he told The Associated Press that Polanski was still expected to be taken to his chalet in the luxury resort of Gstaad on Friday afternoon.

Polanski won't be allowed to leave his house while Switzerland decides whether to extradite him to the U.S. for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl. He will have to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.
