I guess they were trying to sneak out with the rock star thing.

Even though the cops and DA's office have backed down--probably when they found out they might be sued for this fascist behavior--Christina should still sue for false arrest. These out-of-control cops need to be punished for their storm trooper behavior.

Holy crap, are they for real. And who the hell arrests somebody, fingerprints, photographs and throws them in the tank then says, "Nevermind, we aren't going to prosecute".

I always thought Drunk in a public place meant you were in public, walking, in a bar, restaurant and causing a disturbance. The arresting cops must have been behind on their quota for the month.

If she was driving thats one thing but she was just a drunk passenger, cops should have just called someone to bring her home.

Why arrest, finger print, and book someone who was a passenger in a car? And people in LA want to know why there is no room in thier jails for real celebrity criminals like Lindsay Lohan.

I bet that's because they had no desire to continue looking at her. Damn she's scary looking!

So she was arrested at 2:45 AM and let out at almost 9? Sounds like someone had to sleep it off.

To all of you who think the cops should have just called her a cab, WTF? They're not valets. They're cops! When her intoxicated driver was arrested and she no longer had the ability to get herself home, she was publicly intoxicated. That's how it works, folks. They probably asked her if she had a way to get home and she obviously didn't. (Of course, that is assuming she wasn't being belligerent with them, which as a drunk celebrity, I'm guessing she was.) She was tossed into the drunk tank like any other person would have been.

She shouldn't have been arrested in the first place unless she was giving the cops a hard time. Her boyfriend on the other hand should get in BIG trouble as there is no excuse for DUI. Hopefully it will give her the wakeup call to get treatment though.

She looks like Hatchet Face from Cry-Baby in this picture. Not very flattering.
