Ex-Lindsay Lohan lover Samantha Ronson's DUI arrest on Monday has made headlines, partially because of the mugshot that came out of the ordeal. Ronson was arrested after she was pulled over in Baker, California.

Ronson, 33, was driving a Porsche. Officers at first stopped her because of her driving speed. She had been going about 19 miles above the posted speed limit of 70 miles per hour.

Well, once pulled over, officers suspected that she was also under the influence, reports US Weekly.

The arresting officers gave her a balance test. The DJ showed some signs of being intoxicated at the time, according to US Weekly. She was then arrested after she refused a breathalyzer test, though reports are that while at the police station she tested above the legal limit, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Officers say that she was both friendly and cooperative with law enforcement during the arrest. Maybe her generally congenial attitude towards her arrest is why she was able to crack a half-smile in her mugshot photo.

Ronson admitted that she had been drinking alcohol earlier. She was arrested at around 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, and claimed that she had been drinking late that night or possibly early in the morning, and was on her way home from Las Vegas when she was pulled over, reports Us Weekly.

Will Ronson get leniency with this recent run-in with the law? Maybe, if she doesn't have a prior history of drunk driving. Though, for sure, Samantha Ronson's DUI seems to pale in comparison with her famous ex's legal woes: Lindsay Lohan has gotten into a whole lot of trouble with the law for drugs, alcohol, and shoplifting. While Ronson was arrested, she was released the same day, reports US Weekly.
