Nicole Richie Still Trying to Be More Like Paris Hilton

While La Lohan appears to have stepped aboard the sobriety wagon, Miss Nicole Richie has fallen way, way off. Nicole, who has struggled with substance abuse for as long as you’ve heard of her, was arrested for DUI early Monday morning. Her SUV was spotted going the wrong way on the 134 in Burbank. That’s right, folks: it’s not that she was swerving, it’s that she was going the wrong way on the freeway. Two motorists called 911, and, when cops got to Nicole, she was stopped in the carpool lane, talking on her cell phone. She admitted she had taken Vicodin and smoked pot, although a preliminary screening revealed she had not been drinking. Her booking sheet reveals she is 5’1″ and 85 pounds.

Sadly, CHP has decided they won’t be releasing Richie’s mugshot.

Welcome to the celebrity DUI club, Nicole. It’s good to have you.

Update: What was Nicole Richie doing driving through Burbank at 4 o’clock in the morning? Heading back from Glendale, it seems, where new boyfriend Joel Madden lives. (Joel and Hilary Duff broke up, like, 5 minutes ago.) Cute.
