Christina Aguilera and Matthew Rutler: Arrested for Public Intoxication, DUI

by at . Comments

In what can be deemed as an incident any celebrity gossip follower could have easily seen coming, Christina Aguilera was arrested early this morning for public intoxication.

According to TMZ, the singer was booked around 3 a.m. at the West Hollywood police station for the misdemeanor offense, while boyfriend Matt Rutler was also processed on charges of drunk driving. His bail was set at $30,000.

Matt Rutler and Christina Aguilera

It's been a troubling few months for Aguilera, as friends have been concerned over her downward spiral since her divorce from Jordan Bratman.

Aside from her memorably embarrassing national anthem mishap at the Super Bowl, Christina has most recently been accused of having sex with Rutler during a family gathering.

Cops reportedly pulled Rutler over this morning after they noticed him driving erratically. Sources say Aguilera acted "extremely intoxicated" and was "unable to take care of herself."

UPDATE: Says Sgt. Michael Thomas of West Hollywood Sheriff's Department: "Aguilera was taken into custody "for her own safety. It's kind of a welfare 'arrest.' Not a criminal arrest. She was intoxicated - too much to be in public. No one was available to take care of her, because the person she was with was arrested for drunk driving. When it's determined she's sober, she'll be released."

If they're going to arrest anyone, they should arrest her stylist for letting her run around with that tired, dried up, bleach blond bimbet do for this long. Please Christina follow in Bieber's foot steps and change that hair style.

She does seem to be steadily going downhill since the superbowl mishap. THAT shouldda n couldda been a big warning sign to her to straighten up. No biggy. She's still amazing and so beautiful. To ignore that tho and fall during the grammy's, and now this is notsogood. If we just make excuses and coddle her, it's way worse for her! At least Lindsay Lohan doesn't have a child yet. Thank God! You HAVE to get it together for your child! Not cuz you're a celebrity, but, because you have an innocent that depends on you for life...
