Shayne Lamas Gets DUI, According to Shayne

11/15/2009 11:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shayne LamasDUIs are great for ratings -- so what better way to help your reality show then to go get one ... and then blab all about it to the network that airs your show?

Shayne Lamas
was popped in Venice, Calif. last night for allegedly driving under the influence -- and we know this because she told E!, home of "Leave it to Lamas," the whole story.

In a shockingly well-worded statement, Lamas told E!, "Early Saturday morning, after consuming one drink, I willingly drove through a mandatory check point on my way home with complete confidence of passing. However, the breathalyzer indicated that I was over the legal limit of blood alcohol content and was arrested onsite."

Look for a very special episode of "Leave it to Lamas" sometime during the next sweeps period.

Does anyone else think she looks like Heidi Montag-Pratt and her sis Dakota looks like Audrina from the Hills? More stupid Hollywood girls trying to cash in on the reality shows.....Do something productive with your lives instead of hanging out in Hollywood and going to clubs!!

The legal limit just means with that level of blood alcohol, the assumption is that your driving was impaired unless you work very very hard to prove otherwise, so you might as well just throw yourself on the mercy of the court to avoid wasting everybody's time. You can be arrested for a DUI under that limit if you fail the field tests or exhibit impaired driving. And yes, it's very easy for a small, thin woman to show impairment with just one drink. My mother would practically end up under the table with a single small glass of chianti while waiting for a restaurant meal (food will slow the absorption of the alcohol). We kids found it rather embarrassing... :)

Someone said it was all the fault of the "prohibitionists" setting such low limits. Not. It's purely a safety issue. People often don't realize how much even a small amount of alcohol (especially if you drink without eating) negatively affects their reflexes and ability to judge their own driving. Since I don't drink alcohol myself (even swore off Nyquil, which is like a shot of whiskey...) and am thus often the only completely sober person in a room - I see changes in people even after a single beer. People drinking together don't notice because their perceptions are all being affected by the alcohol.

Typically you are pulled over for testing whenever your driving shows signs of impairment - the first time I ever drove at night, I was driving too close to the white line and a police officer stopped me. He could see I wasn't drunk, and just suggested that I stay in the middle of the lane rather than using the white line as a guide (which I was doing without realizing it). He said that actually was a sign of a possibly drunk driver.

I believe this girl was impaired for the simple reason that she was stupid enough to go through a "mandatory checkpoint" without checking her own blood alcohol first... I'm sure she can afford the gadgets sold for just that purpose. And certainly she must know that "just one drink" could put her over, there's been enough publicity about it. Don't they teach that stuff in driver's ed?

If a higher blood alcohol level than the legal limit really doesn't impair your driving, you won't be pulled over and tested outside of checkpoints, right? So stop complaining and just drive safely. If you get in an accident, though, good luck proving it.

After reading the insulting posts on here - it is no mystery why females are increasingly not interested in a male's plumbing.

I would rather stay home alone and fill my doing something relaxing than wasting my time around freaks who want "back door entry". Yaaawn

I'm shocked. Most pissy alcoholics don't run and tell E! news about their DUI's. Then again, most sloppy drunks caught driving go to jail, pay a fine or lose their licenses. They must have newer laws in California I'm not aware of. Then again, I don't know everything.
