Dumbass Du Jour

The Dumbass of the Day would have to be Michelle Rodriguez, someone I've never heard of, but who is apparently a celebrity in that she apparently stars in 'Lost'. She, like every other Hollywood denizen these days, had pled no contest (ie, guilty, but I'm not saying I'm guilty) to various offenses that involved alcohol and motor vehicles and, in one case, hit and run. That was in 2004.

In 2006, she was sentenced to 60 days for violating probation stemming from the 2004 debacle, but was released after spending a whopping 4 hours and 20 minutes in the overcrowded slammer. However, she was able to spend a bit more time in jail in 2006 when she opted (as in freely chose) for 5 days in jail in Hawaii rather than perform community service. Go figure.

Enter 2007 where she has violated the terms of at least one of the myriad of probations that she is/was on. Apparently the judge was not amused by her lack of performing community service (separate from the community service gig in Hawaii that she opted out of) and sentenced her to 180 days in an LA jail, the beginning of which term will commence on Christmas Eve. Ouch.

What a dumbass. First of all, if you're opting to go to jail instead of do community service, something's not quite right with you. I don't know what it is, but it's wrong or broken or both. Second, let me get this straight...you could have ladled soup or fed stray dogs as a way of staying out of jail and you chose NOT to? That strikes me as odd (or, as stated previously, wrong, broken or both).

Six months in an LA jail is NOT how I would want to spend ANY six months of my life. But, then again, I'm not her. And, sadly, I have a hard time believing that six months in jail in LA is going to help her much. Considering that at one point during this saga, the chick chose jail over something less, oh, confining, she might actually enjoy it. Or, at the very least, be OK with it. It's sad, but she's still a dumbass.
