Celebrities love to drive drunk, or in the case of Pete Doherty, just driving while drugged up. Over the years there have been too many to name. In the latest rash of celebrity drunk driving, we can add the names Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Watros, and Vince Vaughn (Jennifer Aniston was in the car with him). We’ll give Vince a pass since his blood alcohol level was below the limit. However, the two last stars were arrested within 15 minutes of each other in Kailua for allegedly driving under the influence of an intoxicant.
Vaughn wasn’t cited for any violation after a preliminary breath test showed the actor’s blood-alcohol level was below the legal impairment limit of 0.08, Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark said.
“We determined he had something to drink but was not over the legal (impairment) limit,” Clark said. “We suggested that he not continue to drive.”
Vaughn parked the vehicle, described as a white van or truck, at a nearby resort, Clark said. He said Vaughn and Aniston then got into the car of a friend who had been following them.
Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros both failed field sobriety tests and were released Thursday on $500 bail each, police said. The actresses, who were in separate cars, were arrested after their vehicles were spotted weaving on Pali Highway, which connects Kailua and Honolulu, police said.
Watros, who portrays Libby on “Lost,” was arrested at 12:05 a.m. Rodriguez, who plays Ana Lucia, was arrested at 12:20 a.m., according to police records. Rodriguez was booked under the name Mayte Michelle Rodriguez.
I’m sure, at some point, the Lost stars with both have horrifying flashbacks of their arrests.
