Michelle Rodriguez, one of the stars of ABC’s hit drama “Lost,” complained after her arrest for drunken driving earlier this month that police were taking away her freedom.
Rodriguez was pulled over by police on Dec. 1 after officers said they spotted her car weaving down Pali Highway in the Honolulu-bound lanes from Kailua.
Another “Lost” star, Cynthia Watros, was arrested 15 minutes later on the same highway when police said her car also was moving erratically.
Both actresses allegedly failed sobriety tests. Rodriguez had a blood alcohol level of 0.145, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08, according to documents obtained by KITV-TV.
KITV quoted court and police documents that said Rodriguez was “very argumentative” and kept interrupting the officer who was explaining drunk driving sanctions to her.
“I don’t (expletive) belong here! Why don’t you just put a gun to my head and shoot me! You’ve already taken my freedom! You might as well take my life, too!” the TV station, in a Friday report, quoted Rodriguez as saying.
The officer who took Rodriguez in a police car to the Kailua substation quoted her as saying, “Just take my car and I’ll walk all the way to the North Shore but don’t leave me in the back of this car poppie.”
Rodriguez’ lawyer refused comment.
The 27-year-old actress plays police officer Ana Lucia on “Lost,” which is filmed in Hawaii.
