Mischa Barton by George Pimental/WireImage.com
was charged Tuesday with driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, following her arrest in December. The former
star (and Keds spokesperson) was also charged for driving without a valid license. Barton was arrested Dec. 27 in West Hollywood on an investigation of DUI for reportedly using two lanes while driving, plus failing to signal when making a turn. Her arraignment is scheduled for Thursday in Beverly Hills. Unfortunately for Barton - and as other fellow fashionable DUI arrestees can attest (I'm talking to you, Paris) - her well-known style sense will likely not improve her standing in a court of law. That being said, the actress has
publicly (and commendably) taken responsibility
for her actions, saying she was "disappointed" in herself. - Anna Dimond Related:
