Jessica Smith Busted For DUI Near Laguna Beach

by at . Comments

Former Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith was arrested for driving under the influence on Monday on a freeway near Laguna Beach, the California Highway Patrol reports.

The 19-year-old Laguna Beach alumna was driving her 1999 Volkswagen Bug (loser!) with one other passenger inside when her car rear-ended an Acura.

The wreck was due to Jessica Smith's "level of intoxication, unsafe speed, and wet roadway conditions," a CHP statement read.

Well, at least one out of the three factors wasn't her fault. She was arrested on a felony DUI charge and booked at the Orange County Jail.

The driver of the Acura, Roy Hernandez of Lake Forest, Calif., sustained minor injuries. The passenger in Jessica Smith's car, Lindsay Cooper, 20, suffered minor injuries.

Smith is still being held in an Orange County jail. Her bail was set at $100,000, and she is due in court tomorrow morning. Maybe pal Kristin Cavallari can bail her out.

Smith dated co-star Jason Wahler on Season 2 of the show. After they broke up, the couple totally hooked up again - when he was seeing Lauren Conrad. Drama!

Then, last season, with all her classmates graduated, Jessica Smith was, like, totally "that girl" who hung around town and couldn't leave high school behind.

She appeared on Season 3 on a regular basis as the girlfriend of junior Cameron Brinkman... as long as his friends or other hookup possibilities weren't around.

Incidentally, Wahler was recently sentenced to jail time for his role in an assault case last year. Maybe he and Jessica can commiserate. Somehow we forgot to list Jessica in our Jason Wahler DUI sweepstakes. We also left off Taboo. Shame.

Its amazing that Jessica would actually be brave enough to driv in her friends car after she had gotten drunk. I would have been scard just to SIT DOWN behind the wheel even when the car wasnt moving.

It's a shame she got into this big mess, I really hope she's getting the help she needs. Jessica is young and she'll be making a lot of mistakes along the way while she's trying to figure out what type a person she wants to become. I pray she learned her lesson about drinking and driving and I'm sure she must be thanking her lucky stars she didn't fatally hurt someone in the accident including herself.
