And 4 of the 85 Pounds Were Vicodin

From the "The Only Thing That Surprises Me Is That It Doesn't Happen More Often" File, we have news from CNN that Nicole Richie has been arrested for DUI in Los Angeles:

Nicole Richie was arrested early Monday for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol officers took Richie, 25, into custody without incident after she failed a field sobriety test, CHP Officer Todd Workman said.

Her black Mercedes sport utility vehicle was stopped in the car pool lane of State Highway 134 when officers arrived.

Authorities said they received 911 calls about a car going the wrong way on the freeway and the car matched the description of Richie's.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Departmentexternal link report, Richie was set free on $15,000 bail. She was listed in her police report as being 5-foot-1 and 85 pounds.

Richie, star of "The Simple Life" reality series and daughter of pop singer Lionel Richie, was booked in Glendale, tested for drugs and released later Monday morning, Workman said. He said the results of the drug test hadn't been determined.

A CHP officer, Mark Garrett, told the Los Angeles Times that Richie admitted smoking marijuana and taking Vicodin before her arrest.

Going the wrong way on the freeway? Check. Booze, weed, and pills? Check, check, and check. 85 pounds? YIKES. I thought she had supposedly gained a little weight recently? If her weight after rehab is 85, then what the hell was it before? Ye gads, woman!

At least there's no mention of her lacking underpants at the time of her arrest.

Spin away, Nicole Richie p.r. machine! The ball's in your court. Stay tuned!
