We knew the end of the year would net a far bigger DUI fish than Boy Meets World's Topanga, and Swervy Claus has come through once again, crashing his sleigh into the side of Defamer HQ-2 with a newly booked Mischa Barton to put under our twinkling Christmas stump. True to their names, the girls at Hollyscoop were first on the scene:
Sources tell Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that actress Mischa Barton was arrested in the wee hours this morning! She was handcuffed and arrested at 2:46AM last night and booked at 3:10AM.
Mischa was arrested on the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles late last night in her white Range Rover for Driving Under the Influence and driving without a license.
Her bail amount is set at $10,000.
TMZ also reports that the thespian who so vividly brought Marissa Cooper's every pool-furniture-thrashing to life on The O.C. is still in custody, that the Sheriff's Department's "Inmate Information Center" mistakenly input her name as "Mischa Burton," and that she was charged with possession of narcotics—ominous italics ours. (A white Christmas?) We promise to update you with a mugshot just as soon as one is made available, and that shouldn't be long, but may we suggest using the few minutes until then for a booking-shot guessing game? Half-smile? One eye closed? Nolte hair? Place your bets.
