‘Lost’ actor moonlights in ‘Hammered’
Lost' Star Doing Jail Time for DUI

HONOLULU (AP) -- "Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez has surrendered to begin a five-day jail sentence for drunken driving.

Rodriguez, who portrays police officer Ana Lucia, opted for jail time and a $500 fine rather than 240 hours of community service.

"I kind of have to get back to my life, go back to making some money," Rodriguez said outside the courtroom after pleading guilty to driving under the influence. "It kind of gave me a hard hit. ... I'm human."

The 27-year-old Rodriguez and cast member Cynthia Watros were both charged with drunken driving after they were pulled over Dec. 1 in separate cars within 15 minutes of each other…

Rodriguez recorded a blood-alcohol level of 0.145 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08. Watros had a blood-alcohol level of 0.10…

In 2004, Rodriguez pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three traffic violations, including drunken driving. She completed a three-month alcohol program and is serving a three-year probation term…
I would think going to jail for a subsequent conviction of drunken driving in another state would void the CA probation. Rodriquez’s agent must be scouring the country looking for other acting work in states other than CA.
