Child star charged with drink-driving

Sixth Sense’ star Haley Joel osment has been charged with three misdemeanors including driving under the influence. A Los Angeles district attorney reports that the 18-year-old actor was also charged with possession of marijuana while driving and being under the age of 21 while driving with a .05 percent blood alcohol content. The charges stem from an incident last month when the actor crashed his car at around 1 a.m. near Los Angeles. Haley broke a rib and hurt his shoulder in the accident, but was expected to make a full recovery. If convicted, the child star faces up to six months in jail. [18 August 2006]
