“Lost” stars Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros were arraigned on charges of drunken driving Thursday, nearly a month after both actresses were arrested in separate cars.
Watros, 37, who plays Libby on ABC’s hit castaway drama, planned to return to court Jan. 12 to plead guilty, according to her attorney, Lanson Kupau.
“She made a mistake. She’s very remorseful and she wants to take responsibility for her actions,” Kupau said in an interview. “She realizes, understands and appreciates the seriousness of the charges.”
Neither actress attended the court hearing.
A March 30 trial was set for Rodriguez, who plays police officer Ana Lucia on “Lost,” which is filmed in Hawaii. Her attorney, Steve Barta, declined to comment.
The actresses were driving separate cars when they were arrested Dec. 1 within 15 minutes of each other. Their vehicles had been spotted weaving in Kailua, on the island of Oahu.
Both failed field sobriety tests and were released on $500 bail, police said.
Rodriguez pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three traffic violations in 2004, including drunken driving. She completed a three-month alcohol program and is serving a three-year probation term.
Prosecutors in Los Angeles planned to ask a court for a probation violation hearing.
Rodriguez, 27, was also cited for speeding in Hawaii three times this year.
