Christina Aguilera was arrested for public intoxication early this morning and jailed “for her own safety” after her boyfriend was pulled over for DUI. People Magazine says:
Aguilera, 30, was a passenger in a car driven by boyfriend Matthew Rutler that was pulled over at 2:45 a.m. when deputies noticed the vehicle driving erratically. Both were booked, Aguilera for public intoxication, Rutler for DUI.
“She was not capable of taking care of herself. She was incapacitated,” said the spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’sDepartment. “It was a public safety issue. When she was able to think on her own, she was released.”
“Able to think on her own” is police talk for “sober enough to clean herself up.” There’s no convincing a cop you’re completely sober when you’re sitting in a pantload of your own filth. Trust me, they won’t even talk to you until you’ve wiped most of the vomit out of your hair. Otherwise, you’re just wasting your breath.
