The fact is its against the law to be publicly drunk. If you're so drunk that you can't walk or talk which is obviously the state Christinia was in then the police had the right to arrest her. Public drunkeness is not acceptable. It doesn't matter if she's a passenger or not. If you are walking down the street drunk and the police see you, they will arrest you. Normally they put you in the "drunk tank" to help you sober up and release you. God knows I know people this has happened to. Don't defend Christina just because she's a celebrity.

You would think with her kind of $$ she could have hired a driver to take her and the freeloader around town! In the press conference it said the driver was being bonded out? What she didn't drop $5k at the booking desk on her way out!

She is the picture of Dorian Gray. Her outsides are getting as ugly as her insides have always been. So grotesque looking.

Regardless of the horrible picture, Christina really appears to have hit a wall. She was actually hot a few years ago. Drugs must be taking a toll...

Typical idiot TMZ readers. SHE DID NOT COMMIT A CRIME. SHE SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ARRESTED. She was drinking. She did not drive or cause and accident.

OMG...THAT's Christina??? Seriously??? OMG.

This woman was beautiful only a few months ago. OMG. I'm in shock. She's gotten that Amy Winehouse look to her now. Her family had better get her into rehab ASAP, she looks deathly ill to me.

Rooting for you, Christina. Please get well and be there for your child. Children do not do well without their mother in their lives.

She needs to get treatment for alcoholism. The longer she waits the harder it will be to regain her looks. Also alcohol causes symptoms similar to mental retardation which are permanent.

Yep, celebrity justice! If that had been me or you, we'd be prosecuted. But since Christina is a celebrity, and by birthright, doesn't have to answer to the law, she's released.
