Advertiser Staff

Actress Michelle Rodriguez was released from the O'ahu Community Correctional Center this morning after serving time for drunk driving.

Rodriguez, who plays police officer Ana Lucia on the award-winning ABC series "Lost," was sentenced to five days in jail and fined $500 Tuesday after pleading guilty to driving drunk in Kailua late last year.

She turned herself in Tuesday a little after 2 p.m. to start serving her jail time. She was released between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m. this morning, according to Nolan Espinda, warden at the OCCC. Her actual time behind bars this week was less than 65 hours.

Inmates receive a full day's credit for any hour during a calendar day that they are in custody, Espinda said.

Based on the time Rodriguez spent in police custody, she was eligible for release this morning, he said.
