If you’re planning to buy Michelle Rodriguez a Christmas present this year, you better do it a little bit sooner. Why? She was sentenced to six months in jail yesterday for violating the terms of her probation in her DUI case. People reports:
[She] admitted violating her probation by failing to provide proof of completion of her community service and for consuming alcohol three times while wearing an alcohol-monitoring device,” said the L.A. City Attorney’s office in a statement. The Lost star must report to a Los Angeles County jail by Dec. 24. Superior Court Judge Daviann L. Mitchell also ruled that the actress is not to be granted an early release, despite L.A.’s jail overcrowding. She was also ordered to complete 30 days of road clean-up duty. The City Attorney’s office had alleged that Rodriguez turned in a false document showing that she completed one day of service on Sept. 25, court filings show. The actress later stated that she was in New York on that date.”
Six months in jail might seem like a long time, but then you remember it’s Michelle Rodriguez. In women’s jail. You might as well sentence R. Kelly to an 8th grade slumber party or Britney Spears to drowning in Willy Wonka’s chocolate river. They won’t even need to put handcuffs on her. She’ll just loop arms with the guards and skip to her cell like she was going down the Yellow Brick Road.
