Mischa Barton avoids jail

Mischa BartonFormer The O.C. star Mischa Barton will avoid jail time by admitting she was driving drunk in exchange for marijuana possession charges being dropped in court on Thursday. Barton was pulled over by the LAPD last December after she was seen straddling two lanes of traffic. Ironically, her O.C. character died in a car accident after being hit by a drunk driver. Sources say a charge of driving without a license will be reduced to a traffic violation. However, Barton will receive three years of unsupervised probation and a fine of $1,700. In addition, she’ll be required to attend an alcohol education class.

    If Depp wants to impress me, see if he can get George W. out of his Coma!

    Maybe she was just washing her face. Thousand doobie neutrogenas going on.

    Typical. She probably could have gotten off scot free if she had allowed the judge to kiss her feet. The justice system in North America is pathetic.

    agree entirely, tributegirl. unsupervised probation … 1700 bucks — that’s probably one night’s drugs at a party, which she wouldn’t remember after anyway.

    i have a better idea … spears, lohan and losers like barton should be allowed to do their own celebrity road race drunk around an oval for 500 laps; if they survived that one then they should do just fine driving drunk around the rest of us, which they no doubt will do anyway.

    I like Mischa Barton but come on all these “stars” are setting really bad examples for other teenagers.
