Erin Brockovich Arrested for Boating While Intoxicated

Says she's sorry


Environmental activist Erin Brockovich has issued an apology after her arrest for allegedly boating while intoxicated.

Brockovich, 52, whose life story as a legal clerk leading a landmark class action lawsuit was turned into an Oscar-winning film, was arrested Friday after she was said to have drunkenly drove her boat on a Nevada lake. She was later released on $1,000 bond.

"At no time was the boat away from the dock and there was no public safety risk," Brockovich said in a statement released Sunday, according to People magazine.
