According to, Mischa Barton has been arrested for a DUI. The former OC star was busted at 2:36 am for driving under the influence of alcohol, posession of illegal narcotics, and driving without a licence. Woah, a triple-play. Score!

Sources tell Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that actress Mischa Barton was arrested in the wee hours this morning! She was handcuffed and arrested at 2:46AM last night and booked at 3:10AM.

Mischa was arrested on the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles late last night in her white Range Rover for Driving Under the Influence and driving without a license.

Her bail amount is set at $10,000

People Magazine also reports that illegal narcotics were found in the car:

The former star of The O.C., 21, was stopped at 2:46 a.m. and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of illegal narcotics and driving without a valid license, according to Lieutenant Honings of the West Hollywood Sheriff's office.

Of course, this should come as no surprise. We've seen Mischa Barton smoking pot before (allegedly - for all you lawyer types out there) in the front seat of her car, and even as recently as yesterday, she was seen smoking "funny cigarettes" in the driver's seat.

Welcome to life as a screw-up, Mischa. Lindsay, Paris, and Britney will give you all the advice you need.

Update: It's Mug Shot time!
