UPDATE: Nicole Richie arrested for DUI

Superficial / December 11, 2006

nicole-richie-dui.jpgNicole Richie was arrested for a DUI early this morning after two drivers spotted her SUV going the wrong way on the 134 Freeway in Burbank and called 911.

When the CHP responded, Richie was stopped in the carpool lane and was alone in the vehicle. When cops approached the vehicle, Richie was on her cellphone. Law enforcement officers tell TMZ Nicole Richie admitted she had taken Vicodin and smoked pot. A preliminary alcohol screening device revealed that Nicole was not under the influence of alcohol.

The booking sheet also reveals that Richie is spectacularly healthy at 5’1″ and 85 lbs. She’s so tiny the two drivers that saw her SUV probably couldn’t even see her in the driver’s seat. They must’ve thought it was a ghost car. Or maybe two babies driving, with one trying to steer and the other furiously working the pedals.

UPDATE: Now with 50% more mugshot.

*UPDATE: The Smoking Gun has a copy of Nicole Richie’s DUI booking sheet from this morning and compared it to her booking sheet from February 2003 when she was arrested for heroin possession. Apparently in the three year span between arrests she’s shrunk one inch, lost 5 lbs, and changed from white to black.
