No’¦not an episode of the ‘˜L’™ word’¦but a real life moment from the party state of Idaho’¦.40 Days early!!!
DRIGGS – A surprise birthday party for Dawn Wells, the actress who played Mary Ann on “Gilligan’s Island,” was caught with marijuana in her vehicle while driving home.
Wells is now serving six months’ unsupervised probation for the crime. She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving.
According to the sheriff’s office report, Gutierrez pulled Wells over after noticing her swerve across the fog lines and center lines of State Highway 33 and repeatedly speed up and slow down.
When Gutierrez asked why he could smell marijuana, Wells reportedly told him that she’d just given a ride to three hitchhikers and had dropped them off when they began smoking something. When Gutierrez searched the car, he found three half-smoked joints in the ashtray and console, according to the report. A second search after Wells’ arrest netted a fourth half-smoked joint and two small cases used to store marijuana, Gutierrez said.
After Wells failed a field sobriety test, she was handcuffed and taken to the sheriff’s office.
On a personal Note:
First: Mary Anne was what made me love Brunettes.
Second: Never Leave the house!’¦Never answer phone!’¦Potheads never seem to get that one.
Third: What the F&*^K is Mary Anne doing in Driggs, Iowa?
