Christina Aguilera was arrested at 2:45 this morning and booked at the West Hollywood police station for public intoxication.
The singer's boyfriend, Matthew Rutler, was also arrested at the same time and place for driving under the influence. Both are misdemeanors.
Rutler was behind the wheel when Los Angeles Sheriff's deputies pulled them over. Authorities deemed Aguilera "extremely intoxicated" and too sloppy to drive home so she and Rutler were hauled into the West Hollywood station to dry out, according to department spokesman Steve Whitmore.
Whitmore said neither was belligerent in any way and prosecutors will not push charges against the 30-year-old Aguilera, whose vital signs were conveniently listed s 5-foot-2, 100 pounds, blonde/blue, by the Sheriff's website.
Aguilera was allowed to leave around 7:30, escaping through a back door to avoid paparazzi, Whitmore said. Sadly, because Aguilera will not be prosecuted, her arrest was not commemorated with a mug shot.
However, Rutler, 25, remains behind bars on $5,000 bail. No comment yet from the singer's reps.
