Christina Aguilera went through the full police process when arrested early Tuesday morning – she was booked, finger printed, mug shot taken and put in a cell – but she will NOT be prosecuted with any crime, RadarOnline.com can report.
Sheriff’s department spokesman, Steve Whitmore addressed the press around 9:05 am PT Tuesday and stressed several times that the singer will not be charged with any crime.
However, Aguilera’s boyfriend, Matt Rutler has been charged with DUI, and his bail was set at $5,0000 – not $30,000 as previously reported.
According to Whitmore, Aguilera was released around 7:30 am PT this morning after passing a sobriety test in jail, and driven home by a friend, but Rutler was still being held in custody.
Whitmore explained that cops pulled over Rutler’s car on Sunset and Clark in West Hollywood, after witnessing him “driving erratically” and he was subsequently arrested and booked for DUI.
He went on to say that police noticed that Aguilera (the passenger) “was not capable of taking care of herself” so they arrested her and took her into custody for “the safety of the individual and the public.”
Whitmore stressed that Aguilera was cooperative and not belligerent or aggressive in any way.
He said that although she will not be charged she will have a record for misdemeanor public intoxication.
Authorities tell RadarOnline.com that preliminary results show Rutler’s blood alcohol limit was .09 ( the legal limit in California is .08 ) when the couple was pulled over.
