Nicole Richie was arrested on charges of driving under the influence early Monday morning Dec 11th.
Nicole Richie grabbing headlines, again, when she was arrested early Monday Dec 11th for investigation of driving under the influence after her car was reported headed the wrong way on a freeway.
Richie was arrested at 1:45 a.m. (PST) in Burbank, California, after two 911 callers reported seeing a 2005 black Mercedes SUV going the wrong way on the 134 Highway, said Altadena California Highway Patrol officer Todd Workman.
"However, when the officers came into contact with the SUV in the carpool lane, it was at a complete stop facing the right direction, in the city of Burbank," Workman said. "When officers approached, the vehicle was taken off the highway and Richie was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs."
Bail was set at $15,000, but Richie was released on her own recognizance with a Feb. 7 arraignment in Glendale Superior Court.
