Drunk driving-a hit and run in LA, I believe-then she was drunk driving again in Hawaii and driving while her liscense was suspended. She's also ordered to go through an alcohol rehabilitation program-again.
In March 2002, Rodriguez was arrested and charged for assaulting her female roommate. The charges were later dropped after the roommate declined to press the allegations in court.
In November 2003, Rodriguez went to court to face eight misdemeanor charges based on two road incidents: On July 22, she left the scene of an accident after hitting another motorist. And on November 4, she sped through an intersection while under the influence of alcohol. She had a suspended license both times. In June 2004, Rodriguez pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three of the charges: hit and run, drunken driving, and driving with a suspended license. She went to jail for 48 hours, performed community service at the morgues of two New York hospitals, completed a three-month alcohol program, and was placed on probation for three years.
In 2005, while filming Lost in Hawaii, Rodriguez was pulled over by Honolulu police multiple times; she was cited for driving 83 mph in a 55 mph zone on Oahu on Nov. 1 and was fined $357, paid a $300 fine for driving 90 mph in a 35 mph zone on Oct. 20, was fined $197 for going 80 mph in a 50 mph zone on August 24.
Rodriguez and her Lost costar, Cynthia Watros, who were driving in separate cars, were each pulled over and arrested on the morning of December 1, 2005 in Kailua, Hawaii. According to the arresting officers, the actresses were weaving in and out of traffic on Pali Highway, which connects Kailua and Honolulu. Rodriguez and Watros were arrested at 12:05 and 12:20 am, respectively, and both failed sobriety tests.
Because the December 1, 2005 incident in Kailua was a violation of her probation, Rodriguez was sentenced to 60 days in prison, a 30 day alcohol rehabilitation programme and another 30 days of community service, including work for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, by a judge in Los Angeles on May 1, 2006.
During a May 4, 2006 interview with Charles Gibson, Diane Sawyer, and Robin Roberts on ABC's Good Morning America, Rodriguez claimed that the ordeal forced her to grow up. ( Right )
