Michelle Rodriguez Out Of Jail After Four Hours And 20 Minutes Of Hard Time
Wow. Her people probably haven’t had time to book that flight to France yet. That’s quite a cut in her jail sentence – four hours down from two months. She must have been on her best behavior for those first few hours.
“Needless to say, our prosecutors are not happy about this,” says a spokesperson for the L.A. City Attorney’s office. “But the sheriffs have a policy to let some nonviolent offenders go early, in part due to jail overcrowding.”
Rodriguez, 27, must perform 30 days of community service and is on two years probation.
The night of her release, the actress was spotted at the Tropicana Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel, and on Monday night at the Hollywood club Shag.
“Michelle’s happy with the way things turned out,” her friend, designer Anand Jon, tells PEOPLE. “She knows this wasn’t a literal get-out-of-jail-free card. Michelle’s taken responsibility for the past and now she’s ready to focus on her career.”
On May 22, Rodriguez was sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating probation due to her DUI arrest last December in Hawaii.
The week before her sentencing, Michelle Rodriguez was quoted as saying, “I’m a gypsy. I can see beauty in a jail cell.” It’s a shame she didn’t get to see all that beauty.
