Christina Aguilera

and Boyfriend

Arrested

3/1/2011 1:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning along with her boyfriend in West Hollywood, TMZ has learned. Christina was popped for public intoxication and her boyfriend was arrested for driving under the influence.

Christina Aguilera Arrested
Cops say ... Aguilera was a passenger in a car driven by Matthew Rutler when officers noticed he was driving erratically around 2:45 AM ... so they pulled the vehicle over. 

Officers determined Rutler was drunk and arrested him for misdemeanor DUI.

Cops say the deputies determined Aguilera was also "extremely intoxicated" ... and since she was unable to care for herself, Aguilera was taken into custody.

Aguilera was booked for public intoxication -- and according to the booking sheet, she was listed at 5'2" and 100 lbs.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, Rutler's bail was set at $5,000.

However, the source adds, "If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, [Christina] would have never been in trouble."

Sources close to Xtina tell us they have been trying to get the singer into a rehab program for weeks.

I don't know if bail is also inflated in LA but bail for a DUI in Orlando is only $500-1000. This guys bail was set at $30,000!!! That doesn't sound like a typically misdemeanor offense but what do I know.

Public intoxication? Really? They rarely ever arrest a car passenger for being drunk, she musta played the "Don't you know who I am" card...

Oh no, here we go again! Say what you want about Britney, but at least during her meltdown she never got caught doing anything illegal, except her driving.

Before someone else says it, yes Christina has more talent in her fingertips than most of these other starlets could dream of...not the point though.

High bail usually means an exceptional BAC. Would not be unusual for someone who blows a .24, and additional charges are usually tacked on with a high BAC

Xtina....knock it off and get well, we miss you.
