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.

Mischa Barton Mug Shot

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.

Former star of The OC Mischa Barton was arrested for DUI, possession of illegal narcotics and driving without a valid license early this morning.

The frail, 21-year-old actress was pulled over early this morning around 3:00 a.m. as she was driving in West Hollywood, Calif., and is still in custody.

Mischa Barton is being held on $10,000 bail. No word on what her BAC was, but seeing as she weighs about 75 pounds, one drink would probably get her smashed.

Mischa Barton is the latest celebrity DUI arrest.

The arrest of the actress was first reported by Mischa Barton was under the influence and driving a white Range Rover without a license.

Soon enough, we'll have the newest, drunkest addition to our gallery of celebrity mug shots, which already includes Mischa's skinny BFF, Nicole Richie.

More details on this story as it develops ...

In the latest issue of Maxim, Mischa Barton tries to be sexy.

Maybe it's our memory of her horrific acting on The OC, but we just don't buy this skeleton of a star as a sex symbol.

What might change our mind, though? A boob here, a buttocks there.

Mischa in Maxim

As Barton talked about her three upcoming films - St. Trinian's, Virgin Territory, and Closing the Ring - she was asked if she'd ever do a nude scene:

"I don't mind nudity. I just don't do it that often. It depends on the film and if I trust the director and if the context is emotional or just sexual."

Ironically, those are similar to the reasons guys get to see Lindsay Lohan nude. Except that, for them, it depends on proximity of their apartment to the bar.

You can see Mischa Barton naked in her upcoming movie, Closing the Ring.

That is, unless she turns sideways during all sex scenes.

Allergic to Food

The actress who makes Keira Knightley seem overweight is continuing her wildly successful career turn after being killed off The OC by taking part in the following two nude scenes:

1. Mischa straddles her future husband while in their unfinished house; she then lowers her dress and we see her breasts from the side. We get several more views of Mischa's small boobs as the couple gets it on. It's a well lit room, too. Score!

2. Later on, Barton is bare in a dark room. We see her rear from behind for a few seconds, as she contemplates life.

Ex-boyfriend and large-testicled musician Cisco Adler must be so proud of Mischa Barton for her nude scenes in Closing the Ring.

Mischa Barton is single.

And while that should send most guys in Hollywood running, the undersized actress is hoping it attracts a certain type of man.

Mischa Barton Bikini Photo

Barton tells British Elle in its August issue: "I'd like someone who makes me laugh. I like an intellectual guy, because I love to read. If they like movies, books and music, we're pretty alright.

"And I'd like someone who's mature; God, I can't take another immature person!'

Ouch. Cisco Adler can't be pleased at that subtle dig. He and Barton split in February. The reason?

Well, she found a nude photo of him among Paris Hilton's belongings. Naturally.

Prior to that fling, The OC star dated greasy oil heir Brandon Davis. These two broke up in 2005 after more than a year together and Davis was later caught on tape making vulgar remarks about Lindsay Lohan.

Everyone following along? This is getting more convoluted than the stories about whether or not Britney Spears deserved to enter rehab.

Barton, meanwhile, claims she may know Hilton and Lohan, but you find her drinking underage or smoking pot.

"The media has created a fake 'Young Hollywood' where everyone hangs out together and everybody knows each other," she tells Elle. "It couldn't be further from the truth. I feel so, so different from those girls."

Considering how many of the same guys have touched all these girls, we could probably just ask them whether or not Mischa actually feels different.

Instead, we'd like to direct your attention to an actual innocent, young Hollywood starlet: Hilary Duff, ladies and gentlemen.

Mischa Barton jetted off yesterday for Russia - which isn't far enough away from her ex-boyfriend Cisco Adler, as far as her parents are concerned.


The stunning former star of The OC gave her parents, Paul Marsden Barton and Nuala Quinn, quite a scare on Memorial Day when she was rushed by ambulance to California's Sherman Oaks Hospital after a party.

Barton had "an allergic reaction" after combining antibiotics (which she was taking for bronchitis) with booze, according to her publicist, who says her client was not taking mushrooms.

Just read the last sentence again, will you?

Mischa Barton did spend over a half hour in the bathroom at the party. And she was in a state of undress when she arrived at the emergency room, according to a source.

Now, if this were Kristin Cavallari in a state of undress at the ER, we're guessing none of the male orderlies would be complaining.

But this is Mischa we're talking about.

The one good thing that happened to Mischa Barton that day was the mistake made by the paparazzi, which set up shop outside the wrong hospital.

Barton's parents met her at the hospital - the correct one - to find their drugged-up daughter making a frantic phone call... to the Cisco Kid.

We're talking about Cisco Adler.

"They were angry about her condition," says a spy. "When they left the room, she ran to the phone and tried to call Cisco Adler," whom she supposedly broke up with months ago.

Hey, sometimes you wanna see Cisco Adler naked and sometimes you don't.

It's no secret that Barton's parents are not the biggest fans of the hard-partying, sometimes nude rocker best known to Internet surfers for... well, being a D-list rock star who likes being nude and partying.

"Her dad came back into the room, and heard Mischa Barton deliriously saying, 'Cisco, Cisco,'" says a New York Daily News source.

"Her dad freaked out. She put the phone down, but he yelled at the staff about letting her use the phone."

Wonder if Cisco's ex-fiancee, Kimberly Stewart, also makes such frantic calls.

Either way, after getting some IV fluids, Barton was sent on her merry way.

The experience should help the genuinely talented beauty avoid the excesses of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, who were at the same party.

Since the weekend, she's been getting ready for her untitled movie, for which she's been learning the Russian language.

They don't speak that in Kazakhstan, but our guess is that Borat would still sleep with Barton... or any other woman with a pulse.

Mischa Barton is not one to let other bad actresses outshine her.

After a week that saw Lindsay Lohan charged with DUI and Tori Spelling put in her place by Mary Jo Eustace, Barton jumped back into the headlines by reacting badly to medication.

Allergic to Food

TMZ has learned that the former star of The OC was rushed to the hospital last night after suffering an adverse reaction to prescribed pills.

Sources say the pot smoker was at a friend's Memorial Day BBQ, enjoying a few holiday cocktails, when she began to feel ill.

Mischa, who had been quite sick with bronchitis since traveling to Cannes, London and Paris the past several weeks, didn't realize that you can't exactly mix alcohol with antibiotics.

But it's hard to thin blame the star: she so rarely puts anything in her mouth. How could she know? Well, unless friend and fellow fainter Nicole Richie had passed along such advice.

The 21-year-old was rushed to an undisclosed medical facility in Los Angeles, where insiders say she is "resting comfortably." Don't expect ex-boyfriend Cisco Adler to visit her any time soon, though.

In the Hollywood Gossip's world, there are nipple slips, such as the one shown to us recently by Lindsay Lohan frolicking in the surf with new boy toy Calum Best.

Then there are full-on boob slips.

Quite Troubled

Mischa Barton, the former star of The OC and anorexic waif extraordinaire, gave us the latter.

And oh, how grateful we are for her efforts.

Fresh off her breakup with Cisco Adler, Mischa was enjoying a night out in London last night, when she returned to her hotel with an unidentified male friend.

Her top came undone (as you can see) as she gave the paparazzi a little peek before she quickly buttoned up. Nice work. Barton's ability to dress herself appropriately appears to be in line with her driving skills.

Hey, there's a lot to be said for consistency.

As far as partially-nude pics of former OC stars go, we'd much prefer pics of Rachel Bilson like this one, as she's 10 times hotter. Of course, she's also 10 times more private and reserved, so you'd never actually see Bilson in this kind of situation.

Put that irony in your pipe and smoke it, Alanis Morrisette. Speaking of which, we know just the person you could go chill and smoke a joint with.

Mischa Barton knows all about getting high.

Putting aside her penchant for pot, though, the former star of The OC seems to be following a disturbing trend: cute actresses dressing like old ladies.

Daisy Dukes

From the pictures below, it's evident Barton and Jessica Simpson are trying a bit too hard to shed their reputation as nothing but airheaded beauties. You gals could maybe star in quality shows or movies instead of dressing like Dorothy from The Golden Girls. 

Simpson's choice to host an event featuring The Pussycat Dolls isn't exactly what we have in mind. Saying goodbye to that lame singer/boyfriend, John Mayer, might be a good idea, however.

As for Mischa, our career advice would follow a three-pronged approach:

  1. Stop vomiting in public
  2. Eat
  3. Stay away from Nicole Richie

And, seriously, lose those pants.

Mischa Barton Quotes

I don’t care if people try to put me down. I just think it’s so sad that that’s what people spend their time doing. It might sound crazy, but I’m a really nice person.

Mischa Barton

That was a low point for me. I never, ever would have thought I would be arrested. I was disappointed because it associated me with a group of girls that I would rather not be associated with.
