'Laguna Beach' star Jessica Smith arrested, charged with DUI

By Christopher Rocchio, 03/29/2007 

Those wacky Laguna Beach kids can't seem to stay out of trouble.

Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith was reportedly arrested on Monday, March 26 and charged with suspicion of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after an accident she was involved with on a San Diego freeway.

The 19-year-old -- who appeared in all three seasons of MTV's Laguna Beach reality series -- crashed a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle into the back of a 2003 Acura MDX after she was unable to slow down in time, stated a California Highway Patrol report according to Tuesday's The Orange County Register.  In addition, the report said Smith's "level of intoxication, unsafe speeds and wet roadwayds" were all conditions that led to the accident.

Roy Hernandez, the Acura's driver, reportedly sustained minor injuries in the collision as did Smith's passenger, 20-year-old Lindsay Cooper.

Smith was being held at the Orange County Jail Women's Intake Release Center in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to The Register.  Following a Wednesday arraignment at the Harbor Justice Center on Wednesday, Smith was released from jail on Thursday morning and charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, reported Thursday.

Since she was not charged with a felony, "sources" told that Smith's bail was reduced from $100,000 to $5,000 -- but she was still unable to pay it until Thursday -- accounting for the extra day behind bars.  Under the terms of Smith's release, she has reportedly been ordered to not drink alcohol (which she shouldn't be allowed to do anyway since she's a minor) as well as attend one AA meeting per week until her arraignment on Wednesday, April 25.
