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'm not surprised that he was driving a 1995 Saturn. He sounds to me like a kid who just screwed up. Like that's such a big surprise. The fact that he was driving an 11-year-old car shows that he probably isn't spending his money exorbitantly and is probably a pretty good kid. He just screwed up. Hey! My brother got thrown in jail for throwing 10 ears of corn into a corn field. Duh.

most kids, celebrity or not, experiment with pot. statistically, though, it often leads to use of much worse drugs, which can wreak a person's life. I hope he is smart enough to learn from this and not wind up ruining his life and career over addiction.
