Laguna Beach's Jessica Smith Arrested for DUI
Police allege that her intoxication contributed to a crash that injured two people
Former Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith was arrested for driving under the influence on Monday on the freeway near Laguna, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Smith, 19, was driving a 1999 Volkswagen Bug with one other passenger inside when the car rear-ended an Acura due to Smith’s “level of intoxication, unsafe speed, and wet roadway conditions,” a CHP statement read.
She was arrested on a felony DUI charge and booked at the Orange County Jail.
Both the driver of the Acura and Smith’s passenger suffered minor injuries. Smith was not injured.
Smith briefly dated costar Jason Wahler on season two of the show. Wahler was most recently sentenced to 60 days in county jail for assault charges.
