Mischa Barton Mug Shot, Police Statement Released

by at . Comments

Mischa Barton remains in custody following her DUI arrest, but more details have emerged as to how and why the 21-year-old celebrity was taken into custody.

According to a press release issued earlier this morning by the L.A. County Sheriffs Department, the former star of The OC was pulled over early this morning around 2:45 a.m. this morning as she was driving around West Hollywood, Calif.

This Mischa Barton mug shot is quite sexy, no?

Police report that Mischa Barton was driving erratically and "was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn." When deputies pulled the actress over, they determined that she "was an unlicensed driver and was driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage."

Mischa Barton is still in custody, being held on $10,000 bail.

The L.A. County Sheriffs' Inmate Information site mistakenly refers to her as "Mischa Burton." Celebrity news site TMZ reports that Mischa Barton is "very cooperative" and "no trouble at all." So she's a well-behaved anorexic train wreck at least.

In May, the actress was rushed to the hospital after mixing antibiotics and - as she herself put it - a "sâ€"tload" of alcohol. Her younger sister, Hania Barton, entered rehab earlier this year at the age of 19 for addiction to painkillers.

UPDATE: An embarrassed Mischa Barton is now free on bail, having been picked up by her folks. The star stayed well-hidden as she left the the West Hollywood Sheriff's station at 10:10 a.m. PST in the back seat of her parents' Mercedes.

You TOTALLY do look like Mischa Barton! I've been told I look like two different tieebricles. They are Christina Ricci and Kelly Clarkson. In Jr. High and High school I did look like Christina. But I never did see the Kelly Clarkson resemblance. I still always say my celebrity doppelganger is Christina even though I know I don't look like her anymore. She got super skinny and I.... did not.
