Stephanie Pratt, star of MTV’s the Hills, was arrested on Sunday morning outside a party in Los Angeles. Police officers stopped Ms. Pratt for a traffic violation around 3:45 a.m. and she was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence without incident. She was taken to jail and released on $5,000.00 bail.
Driving under the influence arrests have been increasingly common among celebrities and sports stars in recent months. Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth was sentenced in June to serve 30 days in jail after pleading guilty to DUI manslaughter charges and just last Wednesday actor Thomas Dekker was arrested for DUI after he hit a bicyclist riding in a crosswalk, while trying to get onto the freeway in Los Angeles County.
