Aguilera was escorted into custody at Hollywood’s Sheriff sub-station at 2.45am this morning, Tuesday March 1st and released on a misdemeanour offence. Christina was arrested for being under the influence of alcohol in public. Her boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, who was arrested with her, was suspected of the more serious offence of Driving Under the Influence (DUI).
No details of any upcoming charges have been released but bail for Rutler was set at $30,000. The amount for Christina’s bail has not been revealed.
The arrest marks yet another incident in Christina Aguilera’s recent past, since she split from her husband of 5 years, music executive Jordan Bratman, with whom she has a 3 year old son, Max. Christina has since filed for divorced but it is not known on what grounds. However, the ex-couple are determined to remain friendly for the sake of their child.
In this latest incident in LA, Christina was reported to be “extremely intoxicated” and “unable to take care of herself”. However, if Bratman had not been driving while under the influence of alcohol, neither or them would have been arrested.
It looks like Christina has been partying a little too hard with her new boyfriend. It has also emerged that friends of Christina have been attempting to get her to check into rehab “for weeks” now. So who do you think is leading whom astray there?
