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.

Hong Kong artist Lydia Sum

Lydia had been suffering from liver problem since 2006, which led to other illness. Early reports suggested that Lydia passed away due to multiple organ failure.

Lydia had started her entertainment career since the age of 13, and was one of the most respectable artists in Hong Kong. She would be sorely missed.

Rest in peace Lydia, thanks for the laughters all these years.
