DUI Roundup: Mischa Barton arrested, Rebecca De Mornay charged

Mischa Barton was arrested for DUI and marijuana possession and Rebecca De Mornay was charged on Thursday.

DUI Roundup: Mischa Barton arrested, Rebecca De Mornay charged Thursday has been a busy day for the L.A. cops, as far as DUIs are concerned. First it was reported that actress Mischa Barton was arrested in West Hollywood Thursday morning on charges of drunken driving and marijuana possession. According to the police, the 21-year-old actress attracted the cops when she was spotted weaving between two lanes and failing to use turn signal. "During Ms. Barton's detention, it was determined that she was an unlicensed driver and was driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage," was the official report of the incident, but the police also said that Mischa Barton was suspected to be in possession of marijuana and an unidentified controlled substance. She was later released on $10,000 bail and is due in court on February 28th.

 Meanwhile "Risky Business" actress Rebecca De Mornay was facing court on Thursday and was charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and one count of driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of .08, stemming from her arrest two months ago. Rebecca De Mornay was booked at the end of October, when a police officer smelled alcohol on her breath, after she was pulled over for a traffic violation. Failing numerous field sobriety tests, it was found that her blood alcohol level was .09. Rebecca De Mornay will be arraigned on December 31st.
