Okay, if you're ever planning on breaking the law, and you think you might end up doing jail time, here's a tip for you: become a celebrity. We already know celebs get ton of free crap, even though they can afford pretty much anything, but now, they're getting what amounts to real life get-out-of-jail-free cards. Well, at Michelle Rodriguez is. Yup, according to People magazine, Michelle's latest 60-day jail sentence was over and done with in a little over four hours.

Call it a lucky break for Michelle Rodriguez: The former Lost actress was released from Los Angeles County Jail on Thursday after serving a mere four hours and 20 minutes of her two-month jail sentence.

"Needless to say, our prosecutors are not happy about this," says a spokesperson for the L.A. City Attorney's office. "But the sheriffs have a policy to let some nonviolent offenders go early, in part due to jail overcrowding."

Rodriguez, 27, must perform 30 days of community service and is on two years probation.

The night of her release, the actress was spotted at the Tropicana Bar at the Roosevelt Hotel, and on Monday night at the Hollywood club Shag.

"Michelle's happy with the way things turned out," her friend, designer Anand Jon, tells PEOPLE. "She knows this wasn't a literal get-out-of-jail-free card. Michelle's taken responsibility for the past and now she's ready to focus on her career."

Actually, it was a literal get-out-of-jail-free card. That's what it's called when you get out of jail, for free. But you know what the real kicker is? These pictures of Michelle Rodriguez were taken at the Ultimate Fighting Championship. I guess if you can't get that up-close-and-personal prison violence, a no-holds-barred ring match is the next best thing.
