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.

hey BIG DADDY, someone strike a nerve with you? Dang. Go take a timeout or something!

On another note, I've personally had 2 DUI's within the same year. This was about 10 years ago. Yes I had to serve jail time, and YES it scared the hell out of me! I will never ever drink and drive EVER again.

They DO need to put all of these celebrities, wannabe celebrities, or anyone who thinks that's it's ok to drink and drive in jail. It's not a game, and money can't buy you another life.

I don't think it's fair to say all mexicans are bad. I happen to know one. People should stop looking to blame someone. No one is dead and my god kids will be kids. Bad things happen all the time. It seems like everyone knows a friend of a friend who was killed by a drunk driver. Sorry but I don't believe you. Not that many people are killed. And just maybe it was the girls fault who didn't know how to ride a motorcycle. That's all I have to say.

That is what comes from giving people their drivers license first and the give them the right to consume alcohol. It is in the wrong order.

In my country (Denmark) youth can buy alcohol at the store when they turn 16. The parents would observe the way they youth consume alcohol. If they can not control their intake, there is NO WAY that the parents would finance the drivers license (and it is expensive in Denmark. We are talking of 1000 $ or more and for the first three years they can not use the license professionally because they are on probation.).

Result: Less deaths and injuries due to DUI.

Please for your own sake: Give the youth access to alcohol. Take the delivery process out of the hands of criminals who also sells drugs and sell the alcohol in regular stores where authorities can keep somekind of control. Introduce an ID-card the youth can obtain which proves their age and they have to show in order to buy alcohol. Let them take som classes as a demand before they can get the ID-card.

As a parents you are the role-models. Talk with your children about the difficultt issues, which include comsumption of alcohol and sexual relationships with others. Show them how alcohol is supposed to be used before other shows them how to use it in the wrong way.

I am OUTRAGED at the racist pigs that post on this site. No other sites are as racist as the pigs that post on this site.

You a**holes have no idea where this claimant is from, he very well could be born and raised in America. Even if he wasn't, if he is from Mexico, IT WAS HER F**KING FAULT. SHE WAS DRUNK AND SHE REAR ENDED HIM! You are saying she has the right to drive on the highway, well HE DID TOO!!!!!! He has every right you and I do. You don't know his backround or where the hell he is from. I just can't believe how racist you people are. She is NOTHING SPECIAL. She is a young driver WHO WAS WASTED AT THE TIME SHE GOT BEHIND THE WHEEL. It is not the claimants fault AT ALL. He had the right to get to where he was going, without being hit by some young DRUNK DRIVER.

I agree also with the one post, RACIST A**HOLES LIKE YOU MAKE THIS WORLD THE WAY IT IS. WHY DON'T YOU JUST GO JOIN UP WITH BIN LADEN AND KILL PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT, BECAUSE THAT IS BASICALLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING WITH THE RACIST COMMENTS YOU POST. RACIST IGNORENT BASTARDS.

Uh, Shana - you need to learn to spell before you start going off on others. It's their, not thier. And, you're not even using the correct word.
Their = belongs to someone or something.
They're = they are (as in 'they are either illegal or citizens')

As long as I'm on the subject... To julieann
Please see the following sentence:
The weather outside is cloudy whether you like it or not.
You may think you know your history, but you sure don't know your english.

Just sayin', if you want to be taken seriously, please check yourself for errors before posting.

Agent "D" & others are falling for the trap. It's seems obvious that certain posts are written for shock value & are intended to insight anger.
