Red face I see jail time

Sixth Sense' star faces jail time

Thursday, August 17, 2006; Posted: 8:21 p.m. EDT (00:21 GMT)

GLENDALE, California (AP) -- Teen actor Haley Joel Osment, who suffered a broken rib last month when his car struck a mailbox, faces up to six months in jail on charges of driving drunk and possessing marijuana, authorities said.


Hailey Joel Osment was charged with driving under the influence and marijuana possession
.
The 18-year-old actor was charged Thursday with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, marijuana possession and driving under the influence with the special allegation of having a blood-alcohol content of .15 percent or higher. He also faces a vehicle code infraction of being under the age of 21 and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .05 or greater.

Osment's blood-alcohol level after the July 20 crash was measured at .16, twice the legal limit, said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

Osment was scheduled to be arraigned September 19 in Glendale Superior Court.

His attorney will work with authorities to arrange a time for the star of such films as "The Sixth Sense" and "Pay It Forward" to surrender, Robison said. The district attorney plans to request that bail be set at $15,000.

DreamWorks spokesman and family friend Marvin Levy was out of his office Thursday and did not immediately return a call for comment. He said Wednesday that Osment has recovered from his injuries and is preparing to attend college in the fall.

The actor recently finished work on the film "Home of the Giants."

"He's fine. The injuries were slight, not serious," Levy said.

Authorities said Osment was driving home alone about 1 a.m. when his 1995 Saturn hit a mailbox and flipped over.

That is all bad but if this is his first time being in trouble I don't think he needs to go to jail. I think he just needs his license revoked, he needs to take some alcohol/drug awareness programs and he needs to perform community service and/or pay fines. Jail time would be quite harsh for a first offense.

What's most disturbing about this story is the car.
An actor with some money actually had in his possession a 1995 Saturn. Yuck.

it's hard to believe he's 2 years younger than me. i thought he was like...14. weird.

then again frankie muniz (malcolm in the middle) is older than me by like 4 days and he looks like he's 15.

these fucked up hollywood kids.

I know, I didn't realise he was 18 either. Then again, that's why these child stars have such a tough time as they get older. They are seen as these cute little actors, but once they grow, people are unable to see them as adults and therefore their careers go down the drain.
