Michelle Rodriguez Reports to Jail
Michelle Rodriguez reported to jail Sunday in Lynwood, Calif. to begin serving her six-month sentence for violating probation in a DUI case.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Web site, the former Lost star was booked at 4:33 p.m. in the same facility where Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Lindsay Lohan did their time.

Although Superior Court Judge Daviann L. Mitchell forbid an early release for Rodriguez, the sheriff may have no choice but to override that order due to jail overcrowding, legal experts say.

Rodriguez may also get out early for good behavior, which is granted by state law.

The actress was sentenced on Oct. 10 after she "admitted violating her probation by failing to provide proof of completion of her community service and for consuming alcohol three times while wearing an alcohol-monitoring device," the L.A. City Attorney's office said.

Rodriguez, 29, had been serving an extended probation term for several driving infractions.

In May 2006, she served only four hours and 20 minutes of a two-month sentence at the Lynwood Jail for violating probation from a DUI arrest in Hawaii in December 2005.

She served just over two days in a Honolulu jail for that case.

In June 2004, Rodriguez had been placed on three years probation after pleading no contest to DUI and driving with a suspended license from two separate incidents in the Hollywood area in 2003.
