Cue the record-scratch sound effect: Samantha Ronson has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
The disc jockey, former love interest to Lindsay Lohan and sister of Amy Winehouse music producer Mark Ronson, was pulled over after officials said she was speeding outside Baker, Calif., at 10:30 a.m. Monday. Officials said she was given a field sobriety test -- which she didn’t exactly pass.
With only her black Porsche as companion, Ronson, 33, refused a voluntary roadside breathalyzer test and was arrested, police said. Officials said she later submitted to a test at a Baker police station, allegedly blowing over the legal limit.
Ronson admitted drinking late Sunday night or early Monday, an officer told Us Weekly. ‘She went to bed and got up this morning and was on her way home,’ the officer said. She’d been stopped for going 89 mph in a 70 mph zone, officials said.
Ronson, who was headed back to L.A. from a Las Vegas spinning gig at the Palazzo Hotel’s Lavo nightclub, was cooperative with police, according to TMZ.
The Ministry spotted Ronson on Saturday night in good spirits, singing for an acoustic guitar set at the Chateau Marmont for Carrera’s Summer Escape event, attended by the likes of Jamie King, Jena Malone, Rumer Willis and Brandi Glanville.
