'Sixth Sense' Star Charged With DUI
Marijuana was also discovered in actor's vehicle
On Thursday, Aug. 17, "The Sixth Sense" star was charged with a misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher, with an enhancement of driving with a .15 or higher, misdemeanor possession of marijuana while driving and driving under the age of 21 with a blood alcohol level of .05 or higher, reports TMZ.com.
Early July 20, the actor was driving his 1995 Saturn home when it collided with a brick pillar on Flintridge Avenue, just east of Chevy Chase Drive and flipped. Following the crash, he was apparently alert and able to talk when he was taken to Huntington Hospital in Pasadena to be treated for bruises, a broken rib and shoulder injury.
Osment lives with his family in La Canada Flintridge, about 14 miles from downtown Los Angeles. He attended a prep school there where he was a straight-A student.
The young actor who received an Oscar nomination for "The Sixth Sense" also starred in "Pay It Forward," "Artificial Intelligence: AI" and "Secondhand Lions." He's also been busy with numerous voice over projects, including FOX's "Family Guy," "The Country Bears," "The Hunchback of Notre Dame II" and "The Jungle Book 2."
Osment's upcoming film is "Home of the Giants," in which he plays Robert "Gar" Garland, a high school journalist covering the basketball team on its way to the state championships. He's torn when he discovers that his hoopster pal has been asked to throw a big game. A release date has yet to be announced.
