Xtina's BF -- BELOW Legal Limit During DUI Arrest

4/17/2011 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christina Aguilera's boyfriend Matt Rutler was NOT too drunk to drive on the morning he was arrested for DUI back in March -- and will not be charged with a crime ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A.  County District Attorney has officially rejected the case against Rutler -- citing insufficient evidence to prosecute for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Rulter's blood alcohol content was ultimately determined to be .06 at the time of his arrest ... which falls safely under California's legal limit to operate a vehicle, .08.

As TMZ first reported, Aguilera was a passenger in the car that morning ... and was arrested for public drunkenness when officers determined she was too hammered to take care of herself.

Hours after the arrest, officials decided they would not pursue any charges against the singer.

So if he blew a .06 why wouldnt the cops let him drive home? Why did they arrest him for dui? Seems like there are some spots in this story being left out.

So this makes TWO false arrests by the LAPD!!! I hope that Matt and Christina sue this out-of-control police department for enough money to seriously hurt them, and maybe force them to lay off a few thousand unnecessary excess cops--they obviously have too many if they are involved in so many false arrests. They should never have arrested Christina. They could have simply called one of her friends to take her home. And now, as it turns out, they should never have arrested her boyfriend either. And, Christina is a beautiful young woman with a fantastic voice. Anyone calling her a fat pig is simply delusional! As for the LA police department, I was in a peaceful mass demonstration in LA two decades ago that was attacked by cops on horseback who injured several protesters by galloping into the crowd. Violence against innocent citizens is their M.O.
