Erin Brockovich Arrested While Boating In Nevada

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Environmental activist Erin Brockovich, portrayed by Julia Roberts in a 2000 movie about her fight over the pollution of a California town, is apologizing after she was arrested on suspicion of boating while intoxicated at Lake Mead near Las Vegas.
    
In a statement issued Sunday, she stressed that she did not operate the boat in open waters and said "there was no public safety risk." She added that the Friday night arrest "was clearly a big mistake."
    
A Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman says Brockovich was arrested after breath tests showed her blood-alcohol level was just over twice the legal limit of .08. She was released after posting $1,000 bail.
    
Brockovich's efforts to sue Pacific Gas & Electric for polluting the water supply of a small Southern California town were adapted into a big-screen story, "Erin Brockovich."
