Mischa Barton shot to celebrity status with her role on the OC. Since then Mischa has been trying to break into the movie industry with mixed results. Going the routs of Paris and Kim she has tried to be the cover for tabloids with minimal success.
Mischa Barton was in high spirits as she was spotted leaving the celebrity-popular Joan's on Third restaurant in Los Angeles on Monday, following it up with a shopping trip to Scout in West Hollywood.
The former star of the OC is back home after a recent trip to the Sundance film festival to promote her new movie, Assassination of a High School President, in which she plays the "popular girl" in high school.
As a follow up to the Gossip Girls story on Mischa Barton’s DUI arrest last month, the OC actress is owning up to her careless actions.
Earlier today, Barton told Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, "Obviously I'm 100 percent responsible for my actions in this case. I'm really disappointed in myself. I don't know what to say about it, except that I'm not perfect, and I just don't ever intend to do something this stupid again."
As a follow-up to the Gossip Girls story earlier today, Mischa Barton was released from police custody this morning at approximately 10am to her parents. As she exited the police station, the OC actress didn’t acknowledge the paparazzi. Mommy and Daddy Barton drove her home in their Mercedes-Benz.
And this story is already blowing up, with speculation about whether or not Mischa is falling into the party-girl-jello-mold set forth by young Hollywood celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
Spotted out just days ago smoking a joint in her car, it comes as little surprise that Mischa Barton was arrested in West Hollywood early Thursday morning for DUI.
According to Lieutenant Honings of the West Hollywood Sheriff's office, the former star of The O.C. "was stopped at 2:46 a.m. and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of illegal narcotics and driving without a valid license."
