Why Got Erin Brockovich Arrested?

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 electric company 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.

Apparently she had to less to eat and the drinks had more effect than anticipated. She also did not operate the boat in open waters. She will face a fine.

This whole incident would not be trending news if it was not for the famous name.
