Christina Aguilera and her new beau, Matthew Rutler, were arrested this morning for getting a little too tipsy.
TMZ.com reports that the pair were pulled over around 2:45 a.m. because Matt was driving erratically. When cops determined that he was drunk, he was arrested for misdemeanor DUI. His bail was set at $5,000.
Christina was booked for public intoxication because she was so drunk that she couldn’t take care of herself. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, though, she would have walked free had it not been for Matt.
“If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, [Christina] would have never been in trouble,” a rep for the sheriff’s department said.
This news follows reports that Christina’s loved ones have been trying to get her into rehab for weeks.
