Mom Of 3 Erin Brockovich Apologizes For Drunk Boating, Says She Mixed Booze With Hunger
It’s that time of year when mothers load up their motor boats, throw back a couple of drinks, forget to eat and then fail sobriety tests. Even if they are awesome powerhouses likeÂ Erin Brockovich-Ellis.
The mother of three and obvious inspiration for the Julia Roberts flick was arrested on Friday for boating while intoxicated in Lake Mead near Las Vegas. The 52-year-old was reportedly approached by a game warden after he noted how much difficulty Erin was having docking her motor boat. He asked her to take aÂ field sobriety test. Erin failed and was taken toÂ the Clark County Detention Center. After posting $1,000 bail, she was released.
Erin has penned a public apology, basically saying that she didn’t plan her meals properly:
“At no time was the boat away from the dock and there was no public safety risk,” she said in a statement released on Sunday. “That being said, I take drunk driving very seriously, this was clearly a big mistake. I know better and I am very sorry”…She added: “After a day in the sun and with nothing to eat it appears that a couple of drinks had a greater impact than I realized.”
