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.
