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.

I feel bad for him. It is kind of funny though that he was driving an old Saturn i guess his sixth sense money went to all his alcohol and weed!

Leave it to the potheads to "boo-hoo" about marijuana being classified as a drug.
I smoked pot for years... does it inhibit driving? Yes - been clearly documented. Plus, 95 Saturns don't flip over with the greatest of ease.

Watched myself and many a friend turn into a lazy piece of **** and waste their lives on marijuana too, but that last part is just my personal opinion.

Hope it was just an isolated screw-up. We all make 'em - hopefully he learned a good lesson from this. Fortunately, no one else was involved.

Haley, come up to Canada! Here, you can smoke all the pot you want without any hassle from the police, and the quality is better ... just leave the car keys on the hallway table, bro. You could prolly afford to take a cab wherever you wanna go up here.

Think I'll roll one myself and watch Pay It Forward.

All of you need to calm down. The kid is just being a kid. Sure operating while intoxicated is stupid, but that's a life lesson. It's f'd up to see some of you reveling
in this kids misfortune. how many non celebs smoked or smoke pot and or have driven with an illegal b.a.c.? He's a talented and bright little guy. Considering all the celebs and their unlimited access, i doubt very many of them ever operate with a alcohol level under .01! Brush yourself off Haley.

Good for Osment. I'm glad to see that he shagged his hair out and grew some sideburns. Hopefully he was listening to some Phish or Tom Petty before the crash. The real problem is that he was driving a Saturn.
