Mischa Barton

Busted for DUI

12/27/2007 1:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed that Mischa Barton has been arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of marijuana and a controlled substance and driving without a valid license.
Mischa Barton
According to a press release issued by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, the former "O.C." star was pulled over early this morning around 2:45 AM as she was driving in West Hollywood, Calif. Cops say she "was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn." When deputies pulled her over, they determined that she "was an unlicensed driver and was driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage."

Barton is still in custody, being held on $10,000 bail. The L.A. County Sheriffs' Inmate Information website called her "Mischa Burton." Sources tell us that Mischa has been "very cooperative" and "no trouble at all." She's a good bad girl!

The arrest was first reported by Hollyscoop.com.

I am sure she was busted for something like X or cocaine, maybe even her favorite SHROOMS! What a pathetic individual. Just because you have a little money doesn't mean you can act like an ass%&**, or wait does it? Maybe she can have a cell next to her party pals Brit, LiLo, and Nicole? You're so right I don't get what all the fuss is about this littel waif with no fashion sense. GROSS!

I think they should legalize it everywhere and put a tax on it. Of course you could only do it in private.

What is it about these people in the entertainment (such as it is) world. Do they think laws don't apply to them? It's about time the authorities start throwing the book at them.

She’s probably broke, there’s no way she made much off that horrible show.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

ITA w/#40 Tammy. Pretty young girls are a dime a dozen in Hollyweird. I hope this pr stunt does not help her career but ends it all together.
