I've seen her in action and Ro-ro seems to like her drink. Here on TMZ we see when well 3 known celebrities get pulled over just this week alone. The message it sends to me, is this is how the state of CA. is getting someone like myself who can handle 2-3 beers and be JUST FINE. But if I get pulled over, I'm technically a DUI even if I pass the field sobriety check because if I blow a .07 and then .09 I'm good enough to be put through the $yStem. I wonder what her BAC was?

Something tells me with this one it was AT least .15+ (having seen her in action). Ro-ro when you visit the places you go to, dummy up and be nice to the staff. They might not get on TMZ and tell everyone how rather obnoxious you were when this certain person dealt with you, and worse yet had to smell your wine breath. Here you go Miss Bossy. Swim in your ****. You were buzzed and annoying with getting into too much detail.

I don't excuse those who blow anything like .11 and up. AYOR. But in a city like LA where cabs are outrageous because things are so much farther than let's say New York, cabs are high and the price is a deterrent. There is definitely a need for regular people to get around at a more reasonable fee.

....but a cab fare still pales in comparison to what you end up paying for a DUI.

Took it "out on her" like how CHUCKLES? The same way you "take it out" on ALL the women in your life? Yea...thought so...

This will be a blood bath people...CHUCKLES is a ticking time bomb...those whores better hope they get the eff out before he blows.

Charlie Sheen 47, is all over the news because he's a celebrity drug addict. While Andrew Wilfahrt 31, Brian Tabada 21, Rudolph Hizon 22, Chauncy Mays 25 are all soldiers who gave their lives this week with no media mention. Honor THEM by re-postin this status! Support our troops!!!!!!!

I watched her show, and I just think of someone like her, to know better. Very disapointing.

@TreeMileZune:

Looking at that person with that wig, how do we know it is a woman? There are a lot of good plastic surgeons in California. It could be or could have been a man.

Doesn't she/he deserve the presumption of innocence and a fair trial before an objective judge before being found guilty and being given life imprisonment with no chance at parole for driving under the influence?
