Wild 'Lost' gal Michelle postpones drunk fight

"Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez's drunk-driving trial has been postponed until next month.

Tabloid Baby’s Thumb Guy reports from Oahu that Michelle's attorney said he "needs more time" to prepare his client's case. The jalapena hellion's trial was scheduled for yesterday. Her new trial date is April 25 at Kaneohe District Court.

Kailua police pulled over wild child Michelle (mug shot above) in the early morning hours of Dec. 1 when she was supposedly swerving all over the road (within fifteen minutes, fellow actress Cynthia Watros was busted on the same charge, driving a separate car—she pleaded no contest).

According to a police report unearthed by The Thumb Guy’s news alma mater, Honolulu TV station KITV, Michelle, who starred in the classic Hawaiian surfing film, Blue Crush, was "argumentative and rude" to the arresting officer and issued a classic big-screen rant after she blew a 0.145 on the Breathalyzer (twice the legal limit).

"I don't fucking belong here! Why don't you just put a gun to my head and shoot me! You've already taken my freedom! You might as well take my life too," she was quoted as saying.

The spicy star continued her soliloquy as she was driven to jail, telling the cop to "just take my car and I'll walk all the way to the North Shore, but don't leave me in the back of this car, poppie."

The Thumb Guy will be there in court with Michelle in April.

What's your guess? We predict a suspended license, a fine and some community service teaching the little Lilos how to box.
