Somewhat old news, but I don’t think it’s been covered.
The actress who plays Ana-Lucia in ABC’s hit show “Lost”, Michelle Mayte Rodriguez could face 6 months of jail time after she was arrested with co-star Cynthia M. Watros. Thursday’s incident is the second drunken-driving arrest for Michelle Mayte Rodriguez, who is on probation after pleading no contest to DUI, driving with a suspended license and a hit-and-run charge during two separate incidents in Los Angeles. Officials for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office said they are investigating whether Rodriguez is in violation of her probation.
“Potentially, she could face six months in jail for each misdemeanor charge,” said Frank Mateljan, Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office spokesman. “Right now, we’re in the process of contacting authorities in Hawaii to get a copy of the police report, in order to make a determination if a probation violation hearing is warranted.”
Rodriguez, 27, and Cynthia M. Watros, 37, were driving separate cars and heading toward Honolulu along Kalanianaole Highway around midnight when they were noticed by police because one of them had gotten out of her car to talk to the other while at a stoplight, according to police reports.
Officers saw the two continue driving and weaving along the road, police said.
Police said officers stopped both actresses near Auloa Road and arrested them under suspicion of operating a vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicant, after both failed field sobriety tests.
A source close to the investigation said Watros had a .1 percent blood alcohol level while Rodriguez had .14 percent blood alcohol level, almost double the legal level of .08 percent.
