That 70s Show Actress Arrested for DUI

Lisa Robin Kelly, best known for her turn on the hit  “ That 70s Show” series was recently arrested for DUI.  This was not the actress’s first DUI arrest, and she was arrested three years back for the same offence.
The arrest occurred when the actress's car stalled on a road in Burbank, and California Highway Patrol officers arrived to help her move her car.  The officers noticed signs of intoxication, and the actress was administered an alcohol test.  She was arrested soon after, and has been released on a $ 5,000 bail.
The last time Kelly was arrested for DUI was back in 2010, when she pleaded guilty to charges of driving under the influence.  Those charges were filed in North Carolina, where she was arrested for DUI.  The actress currently lives in North Carolina.
In March 2012, she was arrested again on suspicion of assault.  That arrest was linked to suspicion of spousal abuse.
Her mug shot after her DUI arrest has been splashed across the media, as often happens after any celebrity is arrested for driving under the influence.  Reese Witherspoon and her husband were arrested recently in a much-publicized DUI arrest that also had their photographs publicized in the media.  More recently, Erin Brockovich, the woman behind the hit movie starring Julia Roberts, also had her picture plastered in the media to wide ridicule after being arrested for DUI. 
This kind of” picture shaming” on the part of the media is extremely unfair, but Los Angeles DUI lawyers believe that this practice is not likely to stop any time soon.  Kelly has admitted earlier to a drinking problem that was triggered by a miscarriage, which ultimately led to her being removed from the show. Clearly, the actress is need of help for her problem, and not ridicule.
