ABC Security Cam

Captures Richie's Arrest

12/12/2006 1:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A camera trained on the 134 Freeway in Burbank recorded Nicole Richie's DUI arrest early Monday morning.

Nicole Richie
ABC Television has offices near the exit ramp which Richie used to enter the freeway going the wrong way. ABC security guards noticed the commotion on their monitors and trained their security camera in that direction.

The pictures show Richie talking to CHP officers. We're told she admitted that she had taken Vicodin and smoked pot.

Richie's attorney, Howard Weitzman, exclusively tells TMZ "This is a difficult time for Nicole but she is prepared to accept whatever responsibility is appropriate. She intends to continue with her career and will deal with any other issues that need to be addressed."

If she were fully black she would have led the police on a high-speed chase and after a bloody shoot-out they would have found a crack pipe in her cup holder, guns under the seat and $10,000 cash in the glove box. Amen to mix-races.

You're my girl, LA Dime - the funny thing is that Mariah's daddy is as "black as the ace of spades" (Brazilian or Cuban), but I bet every poster on this site will think she's white! Besides, no "white girl" can sing like her!!! Ha, ha.

Yeah " Brown but Black", Mariah Carey's dad is either Brazillian or Cuban and is very dark... I have heard friends of mine say that she's white, and I'm like are you kidding me? They comment that she has light skin...

#1 You must be joking. LOL!

Nicole Richie is NOT Black. Lionel Richie and his fisrt wife ADOPTED her from a former member of his band. Her father is Pete Escovito's son and Sheila E's brother.....which makes her Peurto Rican.

And her ethnicity has nothing to do with the fact that she was driving on the WRONG SIDE of the freeway!!! She could have killed someone!

To L.A. Dime: You bit the bait... yes.... you did prove... the fact that you are STUPID!!!! Sh*tty day?? Who cares what color you are. So when you ask "melting pot"? I started to wonder about your current frame of mind. Everyone... regardless of color... has a sh*tty day. """""TO REMIND YOU OF THE CHATLINE GOAL ->>>>>>>.- REGARDLESS OF COLOR OR CREED, NOONE.. ABSOLUTELY.. NOONE... SHOULD GET BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A VEHICLE... WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!1""""" Hope your week picks up. If not, hope your week gets crappier.

Kathryn nobody said it was "NEW" news... Some people that post on this site probably think she isn't black (bi-racial), that's what we were getting at. Just trying to show that sometimes people that are not white can be very light complexioned, that's all...

This girl is in serious trouble if she only weighs 85 lbs. as reported if her father or someone doesn't stop making excuses for her and lying about her weight loss, she will not be around much longer.

To #44 aka L.A. Dime: Reading your emails, you appear to be a very confused individual. To try to get through that negative layer of yours, my only message is..........."DO NOT DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANYTHING!!!!!!!...... CALL A CAB AND SLUM IT IF YOU HAVE TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!" You seem to stand firm on your pessimestic attitude and pick at the fact that this is racial! Not racial whatsoever.......black, blue, purple.. who give a sh*t what color. What part of the.........DO NOT DRIVE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ANYTHING MESSAGE............ can't you understand?
