Michelle Rodriguez seems to be the main culprit for all the barmy driving lately. Rodriguez, who we haven’t even seen on Lost in the UK yet, has just paid fines for a couple of traffic violations, in addition to one she paid back in the summer. And another one that she’s awaiting a hearing for.
Michelle Rodriguez (DVDs) hit the headlines a few weeks ago when it was reported that she was arrested for drink-driving,
in the same night that Lost co-star Cynthia Watros was arrested for
exactly the same thing. Naughty Michelle Rodriguez. However, a step
back shows the bigger picture – Michelle Rodriguez has a seeming relentless
desire to be as notorious a driver as rapper/pretend FBI agent DMX.
Michelle Rodriguez was fined $197 for doing 80mph in a 50mph zone on
August 24th. Did she learn her lesson? No. Because then Michelle
Rodriguez was fined $300 for doing 90mph in a 30mph zone on October
Luckily, at that point Michelle Rodriguez realised that she needed
to control her shonky driving and stayed out of trouble forever, right?
No. Because on November 1st she was caught doing 83mph in a 55mph zone,
and was fined $357. And then Michelle Rodriguez’s boozy drink driving
incident occurred on December 1st.
That’s four offences in five months. And that’s just in Hawaii. Back
in 2003, Michelle Rodriguez was arrested on counts of drink-driving,
driving with a suspended licence and hit-and-run in Los Angeles, and
was sentenced to two days in prison, community service, treatment in a
30-day alcohol program and three years probation – which may affect
the result of her drink-driving case, which takes place at the end of
Michelle Rodriguez. She drives fast. And she’s furious. And she looks a bit mannish sometimes.
But maybe we’re being a bit hard on Michelle Rodriguez. Not because
we said she looks a bit like a man (come on, she kinda does), but
because she’s not the only Lost star who likes to bomb around Hawaii
like she has a rocket up her bum-bum. E! Online reports that as well as
Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros, several other Lost actors have
been caught allegedly speeding.
Josh Holloway – Sawyer – was ticketed for doing 53mph in a 35mph zone in September.
Dominic Monaghan – Charlie – was stopped in March for doing 78mph in
a 55mph zone, and driving without a licence. And in August 2004, he was
ticketed for doing 68mph in a 45mph zone.
Naveen Andrews – Sayid – was cited for going 70mph in a 35mph zone
in March, and then in October for doing 42mph in a 25mph zone.
Ian Somerhalder – Boone – was stopped in March for doing 74mph in a 45mph zone.
Notice that nice Locke man wasn’t in the list. Lovely old Locke.
