What’s up with the Hills and DUI’s? Last October, we reported on the DUI arrest of Jason Whaler. In the same month, Stephanie Pratt also made headlines with her Van Nuys DUI arrest.

 Jason Wahler former realty star was reportedly arrested a sixth time for drunk driving by the Newport Beach Police Department, last Friday evening. The reality star was stopped and handcuffed by police around 11:00 p.m. on March 20, 2010, but he was released without bail on his own recognizance (“O.R.”) hours later. While an “O.R.” is common for driving under the influence, more often repeat offenders will need bail.

Wahler is no stranger to skirmishes with the law. Last week, in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, he allegedly started a fight in a nightclub and was led out of the establishment by Mexican Police on March 11. Video of the incident has since surfaced on YouTube. Jason was released seven hours after being locked up.

Wahler has attended rehab and he openly admits to having a problem. Just hours after being released from custody, the Beverly Hills bad boy made a statement about his most recent arrest on Twitter. “Thank you for your support,” he tweeted. “But please respect my privacy as this is a personal matter: no need to bombard my parents with phone calls 24/7!

    Pretrial OR releases were supposed to be for people who couldn’t reasonably afford to pay their bail or a bondsman….Not for pseudo-celebrity repeat offenders who have more than adequate resources. What a joke these freebie releases are becoming!

      Unfortunately, Matt, OR has become a tool to relieve over-crowding. In my estimation, there is little effort to get many defendants on bail – which as you know has significant advantages. What bothers me in this case in particular is how many times this guy has been arrested. It seems he has had some slaps on the wrist, but this behavior is not only a problem for him it’s a public safety issue.
