Samantha Ronson Arrested for DUI

Lindsay Lohan's ex is nabbed for drunken driving after being pulled over for speeding outside Baker, Calif., Monday morning

Samantha Ronson was arrested for driving under the influence at 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, after being pulled over for speeding outside Baker, Calif.

Law enforcement officials tell TMZ that Ronson, the 33-year-old deejay who famously dated Lindsay Lohan from 2008 to 2009, was on her way home from Las Vegas at the time of the arrest and was initially pulled over for driving her black Porsche Targa 89 mph in a 70 mph zone.

"When she was stopped, she showed signs of being impaired," a police spokesperson tells Us Weekly. And when an officer gave her balance tests, "she showed signs of alcohol intoxication."

After declining a non-mandatory roadside breathalyzer test, Ronson was arrested on two misdemeanors of DUI and transported to the San Bernadino Sheriff's office. While there, she tested over the legal 0.8 percent limit for blood-alcohol content, TMZ reports.

Ronson was alone at the time of the arrest and, according to a police source, was "friendly and talkative" and "cooperative throughout the whole ordeal."

Ronson had deejayed at Vegas' Lavo nightclub in the Palazzo on Sunday night and into the wee hours of Monday morning, and had been drinking during that time. "She admitted she had consumed alcohol early (that) morning or late last night, and was on her way home (from Las Vegas)," a police officer tells Us Weekly. "She went to bed and got up this morning and was on her way home."

So that explains the 10:30 a.m. DUI! At least Ronson wasn't washing down her corn flakes with beer instead of milk.
