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.

Jessica stay strong. My thoughts are with you and you will get through this. Don't listen to the haters. I'm a big fan of Laguna Beach season 1 and 2 and I'm 47.... I think we've ALL done things when we are young that we regret. Live and learn.

annoyed with famous people getting off free!    

why in the hell are you blaming this on someone who may or may not be mexican? you have no idea what his background is! she is the dumbass who chose to drink and drive not the other person. its a shame to know that b/c she was on laguna she will get slapped on the wrist, when people like us would lose our liscense, attend satop, and have to pay a fatty fine. as far as im concerned she should be punished and whatever establishment served her (if thats the case) should be punished also! jessica should sit down and talk to someone who lost a family member from a drink driving accident....then maybe she will realize!!!!

Why was she driving a VW Beetle not a BMW or Mercedez ? Maybe this was the reason she was drunk driving.

What are you talking about, you racist people? Geez... There could have been fake blonde Kristin Cavallari right in front of her and she could have hit her. Mexican? No way! Besides, this Jessica doesn't look so American in this pic. Are we sure she's not one of those girls selling gum in TJ?

It's a sad day when our kids can't get home safetly after an otherwise enjoyable time spent with friends. I agree the young lady needs a scolding but, to wish her harm is just not right. Clearly the other car should have been more careful knowing full well that our children are entiltiled to drive also. Isn't it enough that her car was damaged? And the possibility that her family will have to live through a horrific time in the courts. I just wish other drivers could be more cautious.

all you racist people are freaking idiots just because he is mexican does not mean he was not BORN and RAISED in this country get your facts straight and just so you know none of your ancestors are actually from this country take a history class and realize everyone is an immigrant except the native americans who were here first so unless your native americans you are all immigrants and can go back to your own country too...and no i am not mexican but racist people piss me the hell off.

Aww. Poor thing. What she did was VERY stupid and might have done a lot more harm than it did. But jeez... the look in her eyes is "help. I am a trainwreck waiting to happen." And that's just so sad.

horrible to live in- Get a life and keep your racist opinions to
yourselves- God forbid the man would have been black . . .

Yes I hate USA thats why I was born here thats why I sing the anthem have you heard of the land of the free and equal oportunity... has an immigrant hurt you in anyway did they take a job from you or maybe a girl? hmm no everyone has the same chance and maybe if you graduated high school or went to college and took a history class you would realize that if it wasnt for immigration YOU would not be living here..Why dont you go aplogize to the Native Americans for taking thier land..Why dont you go to another country and see how the americans are all flocking to live in Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain etc...have you ever been out of the country have you? you say immigrants trash the US why dont you see what the US does to the other countries....oh and cussing in an argument does not make you win there big daddy just shows that you may have only made it into high school and then dropped out try taking some classes to better educate yourself and have a better vocabulary...
