According to a California Highway Report obtained by, on August 2, 2015 at 4:23 am, Dylan was driving a black Audi in west Los Angeles when officers spotted the vehicle with no front or rear license plates.


The officers pulled Dylan over to question her about the missing plates when they said they detected alcohol on her breath.

"While I was talking to Penn, I observed her eyes were watery and I detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from her breath and person," Officer Mitchell stated in the report.

The actress, donning a black jacket and gray jeans, was then instructed to answer a series of sobriety test questions, and was asked to perform tests she ultimately failed.

"I instructed Penn to position herself with her feet together and arms down to her sides," Officer Mitchell explained. " I asked Penn to stay in this position until I told her to begin the test. Penn began the test before being instructed to do so. Penn raised her right leg and swayed in an unpredictable manner deviating from center approximately 2 to 4 inches... On her second set of steps she stepped offline and almost fell over to her left."
