Samantha Ronson Arrested for DUI

With Lindsay Lohan behaving herself for the past five minutes, it's her old pal Samantha Ronson who's picking up the bad-girl torch.

Although Lindsay Lohan keeps snagging headlines all to herself, her on-again, off-again girlfriend Samantha Ronson has a story all her own today

The star DJ, who tends to stay out of trouble, was nabbed Monday for a DUI. The drunken-driving charge is bad enough. But it's the time of day that she was busted that has us scratching our head.

After wrapping up a late-night gig at the Palazzo in Las Vegas, Ronson was rolling down the highway back to Los Angeles in her Porsche. According to the cops, she was pulled over outside of Baker, Calif., at 9:48 a.m. by the California Highway Patrol.

According to a law enforcement officer, the 33-year-old DJ was driving her black Porsche Targa 89 m.p.h. in a 70 m.p.h. zone. "Speed was why she was stopped, but she was arrested on [two] misdemeanors of driving under the influence," an officer told Us. "When she was stopped, she showed signs of being impaired. [The officer] gave her balance tests and she showed signs of alcohol intoxication."

Ronson "admitted she had consumed alcohol early [that] morning or late last night, and was on her way home [from Las Vegas]" according to an officer. "She went to bed and got up this morning and was on her way home."

After blowing a field sobriety test, she blew a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer, right at the state legal limit. She was booked on suspicion of DUI and sent to the San Bernadino County Jail to dry out for a few hours before being sprung just before 6 p.m.

Ronson, who famously dated Lindsay Lohan off and on from 2008 to 2009, was alone at the time of the arrest. "She was friendly and talkative," an officer said. "She was cooperative throughout the whole ordeal.

Next time, Sam, stick with a bowl of cereal.
