'Sixth Sense' Star Haley Joel Osment Charged With Drunk Driving


Haley Joel Osment, the 18-year-old actor injured in a car crash in La Caņada Flintridge last month, has been charged with misdemeanor drunk driving, authorities said Thursday.

Osment, whose haunting performance in "The Sixth Sense" as a boy who communicates with the dead earned an Oscar nomination, is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 19 in Superior Court in Glendale, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office announced.

If convicted, Osment could be sentenced to six months in jail.

Osment lost control of his 1995 Saturn in La Caņada about 1 a.m. July 20. The vehicle flipped over, and Osment suffered a broken rib and a shoulder injury.

He is expected to voluntarily surrender, the district attorney's office said. It will seek to have bail set at $15,000.

Osment was charged with driving under the influence; driving while having a 0.08% or higher blood-alcohol content, with the special allegation of having a 0.15% or higher blood-alcohol content; and possession of marijuana while driving, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Ed Green, in charge of the Glendale office.

In addition, Osment was charged with driving with a 0.05% blood-alcohol content while being younger than 21, Green said in a statement.

a '95 Saturn?

I take it he hasn't quite built an "Olsen Twins" type of empire off his early career success.

Somehow, I'm guessing when an 18-year-old drunk and high says this, it isn't near as creepy as when an innocent 10-year-old says it.

The fact a '95 Saturn is still on the road is surprising enough.

...and possession of marijuana while driving...

Is it a different charge for possession of marijuana if you're walking or just sitting on your ass?

Damn I received a 95 Saturn as a graduation gift from HS back in 99. He needs a new agent.

Where's Recxjake? After all a GM product was mentioned in this thread. I am sure if he was driving a Toyota he woulda died. Must be something with those composite body parts on the Saturn.
