Steve Whitmore, the chief public information officer for the Los Angeles Sherriff's department said, "They (police) witnessed a person driving erratically. At 2.45am this morning a gentleman was stopped for allegedly driving under the influence. He was subsequently arrested and his passenger, Ms Aguilera, she was arrested. It was kind of a unique situation with this law as she was not capable of taking care of herself. She was incapacitated. When she got out of the car, she couldn't stand. We had to help her stand".
