Another "Laguna Beach" Star Busted

3/27/2007 3:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica SmithJessica Smith, ex reality star of MTV's "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," was arrested Monday on suspicion of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after allegedly causing an injury crash on the Santa Ana Freeway.

Cops say Smith, 19 (seriously -- 19!), of Laguna Beach, was driving a Volkswagen Beetle and slammed it into the back of an Acura, causing "great bodily injury" to people in both cars. The CHP report said that her level of intoxication, unsafe speed and wet roadways were conditions that led to the crash. The driver of the Acura, Roy Hernandez of Lake Forest, sustained minor injuries. A passenger in Jessica's car, Lindsay Cooper, 20, suffered minor injuries.

Police sources tell TMZ that Smith is still being held in an Orange County jail. Her bail was set at $100,000. Smith is due in court tomorrow morning.

Smith's ex-boyfriend, Laguna star Jason Wahler has been arrested several times in several states for several reasons.

ONE WHO KNOWS    

DEAR HOLLYWOOD JUDGES,

AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT GIVE OUT JAIL SENTENCES TO THESE CELEBRITIES AND THEIR DRIVING DRUNK, THIS WILL CONTINUE TO HAPPEN!!!

PUT NICOLE RITCHIE, HALEY JOEL OSMENT, PARIS HILTON, TIM ALLEN, AND THE OTHER DRUNK DRIVERS IN JAIL FOR A FEW MONTHS.

THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL THESE PEOPLE STOP DRINKING AND DRIVING, KNOWING THAT THEIR POSH LIFESTYLE WILL BE INTERRUPTED FOR A SOBERING JAIL TRIP!

Seriously, who cares??? Why do any of these reality TV 'stars' make the news in any way?

'OMG - Kristin Cavalleri is eating with a friend!!! We must let the world know. Some guy from LB was arrested for underage drinking!!! We must alert the world.'

When any of these people get acting skills (and jobs), then it will be gossip-worthy.

My Opinion    

It sucks for Jessica BECAUSE she WAS a reality star . . . If she had never been on that gay show, then her picture and story wouldn't be plastered on the internet. Its a consequence you have to take when you decide to be on tv!! I just hope it works out for her and she doesn't get worse, like the rest of these people that don't deserve to be famous.. . .

So which is it?

She caused "great bodily injury" or released with "minor injuries?"

Piss poor reporting as usual.

“Smith was seen as a good fit for the young-skewing budget-travel guides because, unlike some of the party-oriented and privileged Paris Hilton types chronicled on the series, she’s a more down-to-earth student"

A quote taken from http://www.worldhum.com/weblog/item/jessica_smith_of_mtvs_laguna_beach_named_lets_go_spokesperson_20051202/

Yep, she's completely different.. 19 and DUI, whether drugs or alcohol - she wasn't of sound mind.
