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.

People lets get the story straight!! Boyfriend was arrested for DUI, blowing .09. Since he was driving,drunk or sober, and was arrested, anyone in the automobile that is drunk will go sober up in jail, unless there is a sober driver in the auto to take responsibility for the stumblers. Once she was asked to step out of the car, she was than drunk in public, which is a misdemeanor.
I know this because I was the designated drive for 5 drunk friends,(me sober), I had an outstanding bench warrant, was arrested and all 5 friends were arrested and held until they sobered up. I was out in hours, however they had to stay for 8 hours. This is how they roll in California!!!

On Christina singing the national anthem,you ought to know that most artists use a pre-recorded version and lip-sync it.She had the guts to do it live and in a real live performance unexpected things can happen.She overcame it and finished.I would like to see anyone of you stand in front of a full stadium and sing acapella.I am very sure she did not do that to insult the song,come on,give the young lady a break!

So, she gets drunk or high like easily probably 90+% of people with money and fame who live in areas with bustling nightlife. That shouldn't be too shocking, if you really think about it. The surprising thing is that these people can much more easily afford taxis/chauffers or even PAID designated drivers to simply come out as part of their entourage and chill with them for an evening, and yet they STILL get into these kinds of situations. But I agree with whomever said for the passenger to get arrested, it would seem she probably smarted off to the cop.

What difference does it make if this girl decided to drink too much? It's her life, her choice, and her problem. Not the media, not the cops, not her fans, not anyone else. So the girl felt that she wanted to let loose for the night and get wasted. Half you morons pretend she's under age and has no right to act a fool once in a while when more than most of you get trashed on a daily basis behind closed doors or when you go out with friends after having a bad day.

If you have a problem be annoyed by the man driving the car that was stupid enough to sit behind a wheel instead of calling the cab or the valet of the club, lounge, bar, or restaurant that handed them the keys. The cops could have sent her home in a cab, i've seen it done more than enough times with average people. I don't even like her in general but it is completely absurd that this is what happens when you have a little fame.
