Christina Aguilera and Boyfriend -- Arrested

Aguilera was arrested at 2:45 AM and booked at the West Hollywood Sheriff's substation on a misdemeanor charge.

On the booking report, Aguilera was listed at 5'2" and 100 pounds.

 Aguilera's 25-year-old boyfriend Matthew Rutler was also arrested last night at the same time for a misdemeanor offense.

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

Law enforcement sources tell us Aguilera appeared to be "extremely intoxicated" and was "unable to take care of herself."

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.

We're told cops initially pulled over Rutler after they noticed he was driving erratically.

I agree with RobbieK. There are old laws on the books that need to be revisited. Even some of the newer ones don't make sense. I was reading a local story about a Univ.of RI student who got caught with a small amt. of pot. He has to donate $200 to the Violent Crimes Indemnity Fund and charges will be filed for 1 yr. OK, possession is not a violent crime and shouldn't be a crime period but it is so why not make him donate to a more appropriate organization and I do not mean DARE.

This twine could not even remember the words to the "National Anthem" as she was more into what notes she would hit rather than sing it correctly and with respect at the Super Bowl. "You are beautiful no matter what they say" - NOT !!! Yo Yo Christina - Call LiLO and have a "hearty party" with her in county. Bring an orange jump suit sweetie !!!

I agree...There is no need to just arrest people that have been drinking especially if they are getting a ride home. I have been pulled over by a police officer who called to have me picked up from where I was and the other person who had been drinking and driving they took to jaol. The only reason they took Christina to jail is because she messed up at the super bowl!!!

Clearly there are way too many LA cops and they need to fire a bunch of them. When they have so much time on their hands that they arrest people for being drunk (as opposed to driving drunk), these guys don't have enough to do! If I were a taxpayer in LA, I would be really pissed! Hopefully Christina didn't interfere with anyone's donut and coffee break1

Come on, if the driver hadn't been arrested Christina wouldn't have been in trouble? Really??? If she hadn't been DRUNK she wouldn't have been arrested!!! If you are stupid enough to drive around with a drunk then you should make damn sure you are able drive if your driver leaves the wheel. I used to get the excuse, "If my brake light wasn't out at 2AM in the morning, I wouldn't have been arrested for a DUI". That's like saying, "If those stupid old people hadn't been in the crosswalk I would have had the accident". Grow up people, take responsibility for your actions and stop trying to blame it on someone els.
