Nicole Richie was arrested for driving under the influence.
It seems that whenever people like Ms. Richie are in the news, it's for incidents which are more enhanced, then if a regular human being were to take part in a similar incident. When a regular person is pulled over for DUI, it's because the vehicle is swerving and its a threat on the road. The guilty party is then arrested because he or she has a high level of alcohol in their bloodstream. However, Nicole Richie takes it to the next level.
Not only was her SUV swerving, but she was also driving the wrong way on a freeway in California. Along with that, Richie didn't have alcohol in her system but instead, a combination of pot and Vicadin. I should also point out that this is the second time that Richie has been arrested in connection with narcotics. In 2003, she was charged (although the case was eventually dropped) for possession of Heroin.
Call me crazy, but I think Nicole Richie has a drug problem.
The best line I have heard was from a co-worker's brother, who said that when police called Nicole's parents to inform them that their daughter was arrested, her father picked up the phone and said, "Hello, is it me you're looking for?"
