Michelle Rodriguez is pissed off at everyone but herself for her two drunk driving convictions. In her blog she writes:
"At 15 miles an hour, never killed a pot head . . . We get stopped driving like 15 miles an hour down a 35- to 40-mph road," writes Rodriguez. "I cry, this sucks a - - . . . I hire some lawyer from Hawaii, lose my 28 acres of land and my home in Jersey paying him off, just so I can get the same treatment I would have gotten from a public defender. I real ized my payday in movies was way better than TV at that moment."
Now onto another case, "I get bitch slapped by Uncle Sam again in Hollywood. I get a sentence to wear a bracelet for three months . . . to detect liquor content in your sweat . . . The second day the guy calls me and says you've got an alcohol reading. I was like, I haven't had any liquor. He's like, well you can't use Listerine, no shampoo, or soap, or lotion, or perfume, with alcohol in it." When the bracelet registered alcohol twice more, "I started to feel a bit like a pawn . . . For someone like me . . . this level of control just isn't necessary."
