Matt Rutler Cleared in DUI Case

by at . Comments

How nice, and rare, to see celebrity scandals end well for a change. Turns out Christina Aguilera's boyfriend Matt Rutler was NOT too drunk to drive after all.

Rutler got popped for DUI back in March, but citing insufficient evidence to prosecute, the L.A. District Attorney determined he won't be charged with a crime.

That's because his blood alcohol content was ultimately determined to be .06, or under California's legal limit to operate a vehicle, .08. So why was he busted?

Matt has even more to smile about now that he's in the clear!

Aguilera, a passenger in the car at the time, was busted for public drunkenness when officers determined she was too plowed to take care of herself.

Matt Rutler was likely arrested on suspicion of DUI by association.

Hours after the arrest, officials decided they would not pursue any charges against the singer. Now they've exonerated her man, as well. Good for them.

Well, except for the whole downward spiral thing.
