Mary Ann -- More Like Mary Jane!!

3/11/2008 2:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dawn Wells, the actress that played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," was busted with marijuana in her car after driving home from her birthday party in Idaho -- and she's 69!
Click to read documents!
Wells was pulled over on October 18 after a Teton County sheriff noticed her swerve across the center lines of State Highway 33 and repeatedly speeding up and slowing down. A search produced four half-smoked joints and two small cases to store marijuana -- which she blamed on hitchhikers. Even Gilligan wouldn't buy that one!

Wells is now serving a three hour tour six months of unsupervised probation for the crime. She pleaded guilty to one count of reckless driving and was sentenced last month to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation.

To those of you idiots who think she is sooooo cool. If you want to drink or get high....fine....but don't get behind the wheel and drive! She was crossing the center line and could have killed herself, YOU or maybe even your CHILD. But lets hope most of your idiots never procreate.

Please; what's the big deal. Maybe she's selling. At least she's not some psycho running people over. Maybe it's for medicinal purposes. People; get a LIFE!

"Crack a book on learning how to read." Seriously? You seriously wrote that? Thank you for the case against weed, genius.

For those of you going, "Cool, Mary Ann's a pothead!", like it validates your behavior somehow, you should know that the court dismissed the charges after some guy who had also been driving the car that day admitted they were his and he was charged.
