December 31, 2007 -- Mischa Barton has been spending some quality time with her two pooches, Ziggie and Charlie since she was busted for driving under the influence and pot possession.
The morose-looking "OC" actress, 21, and her four-legged friends were driven to the park Saturday by a male pal, who waited in the car while Barton walked the dogs. Then, looking close to tears, Barton sat down on a walkway, her pets by her side.
Her realistic video with the dogs is here (sorry, don't know how to embed)
It was a very different scene just a couple of days before in West Hollywood.
Cops observed the Keds sneaker pitchwoman driving a white Range Rover erratically - "straddling two lanes of traffic," according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Cops said Barton had no license and was driving under the influence of alcohol.
The actress spent seven hours in jail before being released on $10,000 bail.
Legal experts speculate she will likely avoid any harsh punishment - just like other young stars recently busted for driving tipsy.
BARTON BUST DELIGHTS CLUB
January 1, 2008 -- MISCHA Barton was such a diva as she was preparing to host Saturday's grand opening of the CatHouse Loungerie club at the Luxor in Las Vegas, the owners were happy when she was arrested for DUI last week and canceled her appearance. The 21-year-old actress' handlers were "difficult . . . They wanted a bigger jet [sent]. Mischa wanted to bring her dogs," one source told Norm Clarke on his Vegas Confidential Web site. Another spy said that Barton, who was supposed to get just $30,000 from the club, didn't like the scantily clad model on the invite: "[Her reps] wanted the invitation redone because they thought it was too risque for her image." Barton even had the nerve to have Paris and Nicky Hilton banned from the bash. "They were blacklisted. Mischa's team didn't want her to be associated with the party-girl scene," a source said.
I love how she's wearing Keds while "surprised" by the papparazzi...
