Haley Joel Osment To Be Charged With DUI/Pot Possession

8/17/2006 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ broke the story that the LA County District Attorney planned to file criminal charges against Haley Joel Osment. Well, it happened Thursday afternoon.

Osment, 18, has been charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol. Osment has also been charged with driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher, with an enhancement of driving with a .15 or higher. Osment was also charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana while driving. Finally, Osment was charged with the infraction of driving under the age of 21 with a blood alcohol level of .05 or higher.


Osment, who was nominated for an Oscar for his role in "The Sixth Sense" at age 11, lost control of his 1995 Saturn on his way home and collided with a brick pillar in a suburb around 1 a.m. on July 20. No bystanders were injured in the wreck, but Osment wasn't so lucky: the actor was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a broken rib and a shoulder injury.

The collision caused the vehicle to flip over onto its roof and come to rest a short distance from the initial impact. The actor was reportedly alert and talkative following the accident, and was alone at the time of the crash.

Joel and Mel are human beings like any other and what they did is only human. Things happen to us every now and then. The people who play righteous are pathetic, foolish. May God show them!

I agree with anyone who speaks about pot as a herb not drug

It's amazing how many people troll the internet as if they have no life. Every one of you that are spouting disgusting and nasty posts are really in need of a grip and a life.

Actually, everyone needs to turn their computers off once in a while and go outside and get some fresh air and start thinking about being positive instead of feeling the need to be nasty to others in order to feel better about themselves. You are much worse than what you are writing about.

When the government can find a way to make money off of marijuana it will become legal, and if he has money why is he driving a 95 Saturn, I guess his parents made out good from his salary not him

I took the time to browse through all the comments and there are some people who make comments who seem like they have no common knowledge. I am a marine, but I also have had 2 DUIs and lost my license a total of 5 months and both of them were before 21, I also had 3 marijauna posession charges and never spent a day in jail. I was young and made mistakes but kids haved done worst things than drive under the influince or smoke weed.

I admire Haley for his talent, intelligence and good looks. I was shocked to learn of this charge. It doesn't matter whether or not the car that he was driving is a 1995 Saturn; that's beside the point. The point is is that he's alive and well. Now, he has to pay the price and deal with the consequences.

It seems that people here are superficial about looks and material things than about what's important; he's human just like us and makes mistakes too; hopefully he'll have the common sense to not repeat these mistakes.

He crashed his classic auto, a 95 Saturn Coupe. The most embarrasing is the car he owned. "I see out of work actor"

... the people who're making comments about his looks or his lack of a flashy car?

GET A LIFE.

Not everything in life is about "bling" or "hotness." He's apparently trying to be a regular kid, being RESPONSIBLE with his money. Now he needs to take that responsibility to heart and learn from what happened to all the former stars before him.
