Michelle postpones drunk driving fight
Vive la France!
"Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez's drunk-driving trial has been postponed until next month.
Michelle's attorney says he "needs more time" to prepare his client's case. The jalapena hellion's trial was scheduled for yesterday. Her new trial date is April 25 at Kaneohe District Court.
Kailua police pulled over wild child Michelle over in the early morning hours of Dec. 1 when she was supposedly swerving all over the road (within fifteen minutes, fellow actress Cynthia Watros was busted on the same charge, driving a separate car—she pleaded no contest).
According to a police report unearthed by The Thumb Guy’s news alma mater, Honolulu TV station KITV, Michelle, who starred in the classic Hawaiian surfing film, Blue Crush, was "argumentative and rude" to the arresting officer and issued a classic big-screen rant after she blew a 0.145 on the Breathalyzer (twice the legal limit).
"I don't f---ing belong here! Why don't you just put a gun to my head and shoot me! You've already taken my freedom! You might as well take my life too," she was quoted as saying.
The spicy star continued her soliloquy as she was driven to jail, telling the cop to "just take my car and I'll walk all the way to the North Shore, but don't leave me in the back of this car, poppie."
Lost Fan Number One's Thumb Guy will be there in court with Michelle in April.
