WAHIAWA, Hawaii – Michelle Rodriguez, who stars on ABC's "Lost," has settled two traffic cases as she awaits a court hearing on a drunken driving charge — her fourth alleged traffic violation since she joined the cast this season.
Rodriguez, who plays police officer Ana Lucia on the TV adventure-drama, was fined $357 for a speeding violation Tuesday after her lawyer entered a no-contest plea on her behalf. She was cited for driving 83 mph in a 55 mph zone on Oahu on Nov. 1.
The 27-year-old actress also paid a $300 fine for an earlier traffic offense on the island. She was cited for driving 90 mph in a 35 mph zone on Oct. 20.
Previously, Rodriguez was fined $197 for going 80 mph in a 50 mph zone on Aug. 24.
Rodriguez and "Lost" co-star Cynthia Watros are scheduled to appear Dec. 29 in Kaneohe District Court on alleged drunk driving charges. They were driving separate cars when they were arrested Dec. 1 within 15 minutes of each other in Kailua.
In June 2004, Rodriguez pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three traffic violations — hit and run, drunken driving and driving with a suspended license.
She completed a three-month alcohol program and is now serving a three-year probation term.
