Lost’s Michelle Rodriguez in Jail

Michelle Rodriguez of LostLost actress Michelle Rodriguez pleaded guilty to DUI charges in Hawaii Tuesday.

The judge at Kaneohe District Court in Oahu offered Rodriguez, 27, a choice between 240 hours of community service or five days in jail. Rodriguez chose the jail time. She will also pay a $500 fine.

Her sentence – minus one day for the night she spent in jail following her Dec. 1 arrest – began Tuesday, although Rodriguez was first allowed to go home to gather some necessities.

After her sentencing, Rodriguez, dressed in a brown leather jacket and ankle-length white ruffled skirt, apologized for her attitude toward police officers the night of her arrest (she allegedly told an officer: “I don’t (expletive) belong here! Why don’t you just put a gun to my head and shoot me!”).

She said that her behavior was influenced by steroids she’s been taking for allergies since she arrived in Hawaii. She also said she’d learned to drive only for a “racing movie” – presumably 2001’s The Fast and the Furious.

Rodriguez still faces up to 18 months in Los Angeles County Jail for violating the terms of a 36-month probation stemming from a DUI in Nov. 2003 and a hit and run the previous July.
