Lost actress Michelle Rodriguez has been sentenced to five days in jail for drunk driving. The troubled star – who plays Ana Lucia on the hit TV series – was caught driving under the influence in Hawaii last December, near to the tropical beach where Lost is filmed. The judge in her Honolulu sentencing hearing today/yesterday (Tue) gave Rodriguez the choice between five days in jail and 240 hours of community service. The actress chose to go to jail.
When Police arrested Rodriguez last year she had been out for the evening with her ‘Lost’ co-star Cynthia Watros, who was following her in a separate car. Rodriguez was driving a black Mercedes-Benz, while Watros was driving a Lexus 4×4. A police officer reported both cars were weaving across lanes and heading into a bike lane. Officers said at the time both actresses had blood-shot, glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol when they were stopped. Rodriguez, according to the police report, was a ‘problem child’ during the incident. Police said she was “very argumentative” and kept interrupting the police officer as he was explaining the drunk driving arrest. According to the report, Rodriguez said: “I don’t f***ing belong here.”
