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 am very thankful that this sweet little baby is okay. He sure has come a long way from the kid in Pay It Forward but remembering these are just roles these actors play, he is a real person and real people make mistakes.... and that is exactly what this is.

It's not easy to keep a low profile when you roll your car over at 1 AM, drunk and stoned. Stay at home and play video games, baby face!!! P.S Do Saturn's come with roll bars?

Lately, that's all you hear about. Celebrities getting hooked on drugs or alcohol. They will probably let him get off very easy.

If he'd stuck to using only Pot he would have been OK. It's the legal drug that got him in trouble. Oh no now I'm jonesin' for a big fat doobie...........................

Truth    

Whomever is calling Haley Joel ugly sounds like they have a personal problem to me. He is gorgeous as an adult just as cute as he was as a child. And as far as driving a Saturn goes, sounds like he has good sense (pun intended) because Saturn is one of the safest cars and the new ones are really nice looking. At least it wasn't a ferrari or some other car that drivers cannot handle.

I don't like drunk drivers, but it's not as if it's not his first charge. This is his first offense and even stars have a right to make mistakes.

And to link him to an alcoholic Anti-Semitic like gibson is beyond ludicrous. And pot is not a drug that should be illegal.
