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.

That goes to show you that fame and money can also make you do stupid things...I never understood why celebrity if they know that they are going out for drink..hire a limo..you can get wasted and be driven home ...and get no charges..-LOL

1. Even though I have never used it, having some marijuana is not "turning to drugs." I would not recommend driving impaired by any substance though.
2. I find it strange how people ALWAYS say something like "he was such a cute kid but turned out so ugly" about almost every kid actor when they almost always growup to look almost exactly the same as they did as a kid ( or at least could be projected to look like by anyone with an IQ over 60). Tthese "cute" kid actors always look weird, with big ears, odd noses, lisps, weird smiles,etc- but then when they still have the big ears or crooked nose when they growup, they "turned ugly." rrrrrrrrrright. Jonathan Lipniki, Lukas Haas, Haley Joel Osment, etc grew-up to look a little "odd".-.what a SHOCK. Sometimes the kids even growup to look kinda handsome, but people still say "eewwww he's not a cute pre-pubescent anymore" ( probably pedo, I guess)

A whole lot of overreaction. He made a mistake - a stupid and dangerous one - but posts here are like "Oh, he ruined his life, he had such promise".

Maybe now that he has a DUI the republicans will run him for president.

A little pot - who cares? Drinking and driving can hurt other people and can't be condoned. Leave the pot alone.

I think he's pretty decent looking myself. But I'm old enough to be his mom so my opinion isn't worth much in that regard.

A lot of teens drink a bit and smoke pot a bit and it doesn't have to be "another child actor self-destructs". More like "another teenager does something immature".

Ha-ha! Looks like your squeaky clean image ends here and noooooooooo pot and alcohol can mask your one-trick pony acting styles nor mask your dropy eyes (you're getting sleeeeeeeeeepy... very, very sleeeeeepy! lol), nor your big, fat nose, huge front teeth or grotesque "outie" bellybutton, Haley Joel Osment!

Also have to agree with another poster that havng a 1995 car probably shows that he was responsible with money. A lot of people who can afford new cars dont have them because it's mostly a waste of money to spend a lot on depcreciating "stuff". I would be more worried by some kid who had 1 movie ( or 1 record or tv series or whatever) who went out and spent on new luxury cars. Too many people, celebrity and otherwise, spend money they dont have on worthless "'stuff."

Also keep in mind, he barely got 6 figures for Sixth Sense and that was 8-9 years ago. He's only really had a couple big roles since then ( and probably supports his parents). So I doubt he has millions of ( extra) cash to spend indiscriminately.

They mention the booze, they mention the pot, but im sure they covered up the fact that he was blowing some big ole black dude moments before the crash. Keep taking it in the ass Haley im behind you all the way.

Saturn's are made out of plastic. That car looks like a crushed beer cup and probably smells like one too. Pot is a herb, wow, did he buy it at a medicinal healing shop? It looks like he's gonna need more after that wreck! Don't worry about all the charges kid, just hire Mel's lawyer and you'll be stone free.

Haley's a kid and deserves time to screw up like all kids his age. Some learn and some don't. Apparently Mel is still screwing up...unfortualtely for him his screw-ups became an addiction. So sad that great talent is so vulnerable to drugs and alcohol.
