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.

He's a celeb - watch the whole incedent get watered down to Minor in Possession or maybe an open container violation. Celebs don't have to follow the same laws as us "little people"

1. Marie, may you have a problem with the law,for the first time, and have an uncompassionate judge hit you with a nice long sentence.
2. The alcohol is the problem, not the weed. Though neither should be used if you must drive.
3. Marijuana IS a drug, the delta 9-THC, this is what gives medical marijuana it's helpful effect for pain relief, nausea, and giving those of us with eating problems a wonderful case of the munchies.
Educate yourselves before you go on the net and sound like a fool.

It's just funny to me that Mel Gibson basically did a similar incident with a different end result.
