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.

After all of these commericals and advertisements about drinking responsibly we still have people driving drunk! I don't get it. Most people get wasted to try to cover up some personal problems that they don't want to deal with but guess what????When you sober up the problems are still there and too add to it you have a hang over and possibly no vehicle and injuriries. If you are looking to fill a void in your life, seek Jesus he is the one who created you and he will make you feel much better than Jack Daniels or Mr. Belvedere. I like the comment about why Marijuana is illegal, I see you have been watching Chris Rock's special "Never Scared"!

OMG!! A teenager who actually experimented with alcohol before the legal age? That is so like a child actor behavior.

Whatever, man. We've all been there at one time or other. So the kid is being young and stupid. Who has never done anything that they probably shouldn't have? Better yet, who really gives a damn? The only reason why this is such a big deal is because he had a very successful movie back in 1999.

K-fed simply sucked. Brit purchased his fame, plain and simple. Federation Records is a joke.

i can't believe you are so dense    

actually, marijuana and alcohol are BOTH drugs. they inhibit your ability to think and react in ALL situations. drug - "something and often an illicit substance that causes addiction, habituation, OR a marked change in consciousness" *

i don't think that any of you are going to say that marijuana and alcohol do NOT cause an individual to have a "marked change in consciousness". it has been PROVEN to do that. all you have to go to is a party. so, for anyone who does not believe that alcohol and marijuana are drugs, then i think you need a reality check.

I'd wreck my Saturn too! As for the drugs...pot isn't such a bad drug it just makes you dead to the world. I know because that's what broke up my marriage, along with other things, but you shouldn't be trying to light your pipe and drive if you can't drive with your knees or your elbow. You need two hands for that. And what celebrity child star doesn't try a drug or two or even three!? They have the money to buy the good stuff and you know they're all going to try something someday. It's just a matter of time. Why get into someone's personal life...do they really get into yours? No! They try to mind their own business and live a normal life. Leave them alone.

Osment is like any other fine Actor trying to find himself. 1. He is young. 2. He needs better friends, ones that will help watch out for him..like take the keys away at that party He was at.
And ya he drives an 1995 Saturn..shows he is an average Joe type trying to fit in. I think he can make it if he doesn't make any more movies with mel..LOL

It's really sad that a young person who is obviously intilligent and has has so much going for him has made such a poor choice to drink and drive. Instead of making fun of him we should have compassion and empathy. Everyone makes mistakes. By the way, he is not ugly. All of you who are are laughing and making snide remarks are perfect I suppose

I used to be a dope like some of you fools...with your "marijuana is just an herb...it should be legalized". but you know what?..once you get a little older and more mature and really understand the whole picture--you don't think the same stupid thoughts. Unless of course, you are still smoking it like you were in high school---except now you're 40! Ha ha... Get a clue dopes... Marijuana IS a drug...if it wasn't--you wouldn't give a crap about it. I don't see anyone writing about the virtues of oregano,,,I mean--it's just an herb!

Oregano is an herb. Basil is an herb. Dill is an herb. I don't hear about any of you total dopes smoking any of these. And why? Because they don't do anything fun or interesting to your perception. You guys are stupid!
