Christina Aguilera is finally speaking out about her near arrest earlier this year, when she was taken in by cops for public intoxication after cops stopped a vehicle being driven by boyfriend Matthew Rutler.
Aguilera, who split from her husband Jordan Bratman last year, has finally opened up about her arrest in a new interview for W magazine, telling the publication: “It never should have happened in the first place.”
‘The voice’ coach says “It never should have happened in the first place.”
Adding,, “The police knew my recent history and wanted to jump on the bandwagon. I don’t mean to martyr myself, but I think I was a victim of celebrity. I don’t drive, I wasn’t driving, and I committed no crimes, but they put me in jail.”
“They called me a ‘political hot potato.’ They said, ‘What are we going to do with this woman?’ I think they were bored that night.”
So should Xtina have been taken to the station?
There is absolutely no way that she should have been arrested. She was a passenger in a car minding her own business. That is far from doing anything illegal or wrong, drunk or not. The person driving the car was proved to be sober. It seems ridiculously unfair & typical gung-ho behavior from police. There is no way a passenger inside a private vehicle should be charged with ‘pubic’ intoxication. They said themselves she was ‘well behaved and not in anyway belligerent’. They totally must have had too much spare time that night. Cops can get so full of themselves. As a whole they need to be reined in & redirected towards focusing on actual crime.
