Erin Brockovich became a household name back in 2000 when Julia Roberts played her in a movie about her activism to fight a gas and electriccompany for polluting water for a town. Now she is in the headlines again because she got busted boating under the influence of alcohol according to ABC News. She got spotted because she struggled to dock the boat. Erin Brockovich has since released a statement apologizing for the incident.
