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."

Excuse me all, but I am a Director in Substance Abuse and work with DUI's, a lot. Just thank God she did not kill herself or someone else. I have dealt with people that have. This has nothing to do with race. I do believe her father was black and mom was white. Lionel adopted her. For pete sakes, she was driving the wrong way on the freeway. Kudo's to the person who called 911. They may have saved their own lives. She has an addiction and it needs to be addressed. Someone please get her help before it is to late. She is on the down side of killing herself. What great role models we have in young Hollywood for the youngers of today. From movie stars, including Lohan, and Paris, etc, to sports players. What the hell is our country turning into? We're doing something wrong!!!!!!! Get off the racial crap... If I am not mistaken, wasn't the last man beat to a pulp, white......HEY DAD, GET HER HELP...........

This isn't a race issue. I'm not even going to get into that. What I am wondering though is why Paris Hilton has been pulled over for several DUIs and hasn't gotten so much as a ticket, yet Nicole is facing jail time?!?

Wow..y'all some angry people out there. And quick to judge too. She was driving the wrong way on a freeway, pretty dangerous. its a good thing someone intervened, she could have been dead or killed someone.
Its funny, people think because she is black, or not black, or skinny, or on drugs that because you know this particular information about her, you automatically know her and therefore have the right to judge her.
How very unevolved we are.
