Recently, Joyce DeWitt (of tv's Three's Company) made the front pages for suspicion of DUI. The news outlets seemed more interested in her less-than-flattering booking photo.
The incident occurred at roughly 4:30 a.m. I can tell you for certain that at 4:30 in the morning, whether I am under the influence or not, my mug shot wouldn't have much eye appeal either.
I do not condone DUI (although, seriously we all have driven when we shouldn't have), but it seems the news blurbs were more fascinated with her picture, than with her offense.
I don't know DeWitt, although I just met her recently at the Motor City Comic Con. She was one of the friendliest celebrities I have ever met. While my photog fumbled with the camera, she stood patiently and even started some random small talk with me.
I do feel a bit of sympathy for DeWitt about this. When/if she ever releases any statement about the incident, will she have to apologize for the mug shot as well as the alleged DUI?
