Jailbird LOST star set free

Former LOST star Michelle Rodriguez was issued a figurative Get Out of Jail Free card: the actress was released from Los Angeles County Jail on Thursday after serving a mere four hours and 20 minutes of her two-month jail sentence.

"Our prosecutors are not happy about it, but that is the sad reality of our overcrowded jails," said the Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Contessa Mankiewicz.

Rodriguez was sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating probation due to a DUI arrest in Hawaii. On the night of her release she was spotted at the Tropicana Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel, and later on Monday night at the Hollywood club Shag.

Instead of jail, Rodriguez, 27, must now perform 30 days of community service and serve two years probation.
