Erin Brockovich Arrested for Suspicion of Boating While Intoxicated in Nevada
Environmentalist Brockovich had a blood-alcohol level that was more than twice the .08 legal limit, a Nevada Department of Wildlife representative said.
Roberts won the Best Actress Oscar in 2001 for portraying the dedicated and fiery activist Brockovich.
If Brockovich is convicted as a first-time misdemeanor offender of boating while intoxicated, faces a fine up to $2,000 but no jail time. She was released from the Clark County Detention Center on $1,000 bail.
She also appeared in last year's documentary Last Call at the Oasis, which focused on a dwindling and polluted water supply.
