Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson

Our long, national, pop culture-based nightmare is almost over. Conrad Murray's, on the other hand, is just about to begin.

Reports are circulating that the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles District Attorney have finally hashed out a plan to arrest and charge the not so good doctor with involuntary manslaughter in as orderly a fashion as they can muster tomorrow.

A source close to Michael Jackon's former physician confirmed to E! News that "nothing will happen" today in the case, and that the D.A. has yet to get in contact with Murray's army of lawyers.

But someone's apparently been chatting...

According to ABC News, Murray is expected to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, most likely at the LAX courthouse (so much for flight risks). There's no word yet on whether a plea deal has been reached, though a deal has apparently been brokered over how to go about getting him in front of the judge.

The LAPD and D.A. hashed out a schedule yesterday, which, per TMZ, will include officers arresting Murray tomorrow morning (after he turns himself in), at which point they will handcuff 'em, book 'em, and deliver him to his afternoon arraignment.

A spokeswoman for the DA refused to confirm or deny the planned sequence of events, but one thing seems certain: no matter how they end up doing it, they're doing it tomorrow.

And that's despite the fact that Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, said earlier this week that he didn't have "any specific information that leads me to believe he is going to be charged this week." It must be comforting for Murray to know that his attorney is working so hard to keep abreast of all the latest developments in his case.

Enjoy your last day in the wild, Connie!
