The former star of “The O.C.” is facng four misdemeanors: driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while having a 0.08 percent or higher blood alcohol level, driving without a valid license and possession of marijuana (28.5 grams or less).

Barton, 22, was arrested in West Hollywood on Dec 27 after her vehicle was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and she failed to signal when making a turn, police have said.

This kind of behavior seems like becoming a trend in Hollywood these days… especially among up and rising stars. It’s kinda disappointing to see these news.
