Michelle Rodriguez pleaded guilty April 25, 2006 in Hawaii to one count of driving under the influence and chose to pay a $500 fine and spend 5 days
Michelle Rodriguez pleaded guilty to DUI charges in Hawaii Tuesday April 25th, 2006. The "Lost" actress was offered a choice by a Kane'ohe District Court judge, between 240 hours of community service or five days in jail. And at last the beauty decided to choose the jail time while also is ordered to pay a $500 fine.
Steve Barta, an attorney for Rodriguez, said his client's decision to serve jail time as "a personal choice and would suspect that because she has a hard time even going out for a meal without being intruded upon for an autograph or photograph, it's really difficult for her to do community service". And so, her sentence began Tuesday, although she was first allowed to go home to gather some necessities.
As for you to know, Rodriguez and co-star Cynthia Watros were arrested in separate incidents within minutes of each other last December on suspicion of driving under the influence. While Watros pleaded guilty in January, fined $370 and lost her license for 90 days, Rodriguez opted to stand trial.
