The Real Erin Brockovich Busted for Boating While Intoxicated

Though lots of attention followed her after she inspired the hit 2000 movie, Erin Brockovich may be cursing fame as we now know about her boating while intoxicated arrest on Friday (June 7).

After clumsily trying to dock her boat at the Las Vegas Boat Harbor in Lake Mead, Nevada, the environmental activist was taken into custody.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, she failed a sobriety test and blew “significantly” higher than the legal limit of .08 on the breathalyzer. Posting $1,000 bail, Ms. Brockovich was released from jail.

Back in 2001, Julia Roberts won a Best Actress Oscar for portraying the fiery legal assistant and single mother.
