Why don't people just go down to the police station and party there, then they can make it easier for law enforcement to arrest them there.... or just drink at home.

What makes you think she was drinking? It never said what kind of " Influence " she was under.
She may have been 420ed to the max, or methed out, or smokin' crack. ( oh wait, she eats crack she probably doesn't smoke it. ) but you get my point.

OMG, she's my hairdresser's friend, in Venice! I saw her when I was in there. I met her once through another (famous) friend, too. I wonder what she was on?

I loved her in "A League of their Own" - one of those cheesy movies that's so bad it's actually good! Luckily with Geena Davis, Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell in the cast - Lori Petty's hammy over-the-top acting was hardly even noticeable!

Why is this little boy behind the wheel to begin with, then with booze or drugs to top it off?

Unless she was driving up on the sidewalk, it was the skateboarder who was illegally in the street.

I drive sober and these skateboarders are a nuisance. The ones that skateboard in the parking lots and in the streets. I wish they would pass some laws prohibiting these skateboarders from skateboarding where there are cars and people, period. As far as Petty is concerned...now she'll get some much needed publicity. She will probably get a gig or two, also. Maybe on VH1's sober living or celeb rehab.

I just noticed the handicap parking sticker hanging from the rear view mirror. Hmm...I didn't see anyone with a handicap. Maybe someone should question the driver of the car.

Props to the photog for talking first about what could have happened before trying to get her to converse by mentioning "tank Girl".
