Mischa Barton of Fox’s The O.C. is Arrested for DUI
Barton played Marissa in the Once-Popular, Now-Defunct TV Show
Accounts Vary; Some Say Celebrity Was Also Charged for Possession of Drugs
Life Imitates Art?
Mischa Barton, little ‘Marissa’ from the now defunct teen angst show, The OC, was arrested by Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies for allegedly driving under the influence in West Hollywood, California.
One report said that “cops say she “was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn.”
Twenty one-year-old Mischa played the quintessential screwed up Orange County high school ‘girl next door.’ Marissa’s character turned out to be even more screwed up than Ryan, the “adopted” boy who lived with the Cohens next door.
After Mischa’s character died in a car accident in 2006 the show’s ratings plummeted and the saga of the OC
Originally from the UK, Mischa’s been busy working in films. She’s currently working in the production of Malice in Sunderland, due to be released in 2008.
Micha’s character in the OC suffered through a series of suicide attempts, experimenting with girl-love, an on-again, off-again relationship with hunky bad boy Ryan next door.
Marissa was stuck wearing flat sole shoes because of Ryan’s lack of height.
Some sources, notably MTV, reported that Barton also was booked for possession of drugs.
Is there any additional DUI arrest information on Mischa Barton?
Is it true she’s in jail now?
Is it true she was unlicensed when pulled over?
