The singer will have a record following her arrest, but will not be prosecuted for her actions.
Christina Aguilera managed to get a small bit of good news this morning — she will not be prosecuted for her public intoxication arrest. Steve Whitmore from the LA County Sheriff’s Department held a news conference and stated, “There will no criminal prosecution.” He did however say the singer was in a VERY bad state when they took her in.
Christina and new boyfriend Matthew Rutler were taken in around 2:45 in the morning on March 1, and Matthew was charged with DUI.
“She wasn’t able to take care of herself,” Steve explained. “She wasn’t belligerent, she just wasn’t capable of taking care of herself.”
As for why then she was taken in, Steve said: “If a person is incapacitated the deputy on the scene makes that decision. But because both of them were under the influence…she wasn’t able to take care of herself…so for the safety of the individual we brought her here until she could fend for herself.”
Hopefully this will all help Christina clean up her act!
