SINGER CHRISTINA AGUILERA spent a few hours in a sheriff’s office after being arrested for drunkeness – but she won’t be charged with an offence.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Bill McSweeney says the 30-year-old singer was in a car driven by her boyfriend that was stopped on a West Hollywood street at about 2.45am today.
Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Rutler was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. He remains jailed on $30,000 bail.
McSweeney says Aguilera appeared extremely intoxicated and incapable of driving home, so she was taken to the West Hollywood sheriff’s station and held until she sobered up.
McSweeney says Aguilera was released out a back gate around 7.30am, avoiding paparazzi at the front.
Calls to her agent and publicist weren’t returned early today.
