Samantha Ronson Dinged for Post-Vegas DUI

Samantha Ronson, Mug Shot San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department

What happens in Las Vegas may stay there, but what happens when you're heading back may follow you all the way home.

Samantha Ronson has been charged with two misdemeanors stemming from her Aug. 1 DUI bust near Baker, Calif., a town with a population of about 735 that's mainly known for being a rest stop between Los Angeles and Vegas.

Ronson, unfortunately, didn't get much of a rest there.

The deejay, on her way back to L.A. after playing a late-night gig at the Palazzo, was pulled over by California Highway Patrol officers on the I-15 highway at 9:48 a.m. Per authorities, she failed a field sobriety test and then blew a 0.08 on the Breathalyzer, just breaching the legal limit.

She spent a few hours in jail and was released early that evening.

Per the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office, Ronson is charged with driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or above.

The standard-issue charges come with a maximum six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if she's found guilty on both counts. She and/or her attorney are due in court Sept. 23.
