Mischa Barton starlet charged with California DUI

California DUI lawyer news

Mischa Barton has officially joined the ranks of other famous starlets charged with California DUI / Drunk Driving.

On Tuesday, the L.A. District Attorney slapped the 21-year old actress with four misdemeanor counts: California DUI - driving under the influence, driving with a blood alcohol level of .o8 or higher, driving without a license, and possession of marijuana (under an ounce).

It was last Dec. 27 that the OC star was pulled over and arrested in West Hollywood, Ca. after California DUI cops said she "was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn."

When California DUI deputies pulled her over, they determined that she "was an unlicensed driver and was California DUI - driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage."

Mischa is due in California DUI court on Feb. 28. Her California DUI attorney has not yet presented any statement on her behalf.
