Add Mischa Barton to the DUI list

Breaking news: Mischa Barton was arrested on suspicion of DUI, possession of narcotics and driving on a suspended license last night. In her mug shot, at right, she appears to be a bit disheveled and glassy-eyed.

According to this press release issued by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, the former "O.C." star was pulled over around 2:45 AM as she was driving in West Hollywood, Calif. The report said she "was seen straddling two lanes of traffic and failed to signal when making a turn." Deputies pulled her over and determined that she "was an unlicensed driver and was driving while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage."

Barton was released from custody this morning after being held on $10,000 bail. The L.A. County Sheriffs' Inmate Information website called her "Mischa Burton." Sources said Mischa was "very cooperative" and "no trouble at all."

Oh, and in case you missed it, Mischa has a photo spread in the January issue of Maxim (photos at FunDumper).
