    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS - 6:30 PM EDT, March 11, 2008

    DRIGGS, Idaho - Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," is serving six months' unsupervised probation after allegedly being caught with marijuana in her car.

    She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving.

    Under a plea agreement, three misdemeanor counts -- driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance -- were dropped.

    On Oct. 18, Teton County sheriff's Deputy Joseph Gutierrez arrested Wells as she was driving home from a surprise birthday party that was held for her. According to the sheriff's office report, Gutierrez pulled Wells over after noticing her swerve and repeatedly speed up and slow down. When Gutierrez asked about a marijuana smell, Wells said she'd just given a ride to three hitchhikers and had dropped them off when they began smoking something. Gutierrez found half-smoked joints and two small cases used to store marijuana.

    The 69-year-old Wells, founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute and organizer of the region's annual family movie festival called the Spud Fest, then failed a sobriety test.

    Wells' lawyer, Ron Swafford, said that a friend of Wells' testified that he'd left a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle after using it that day, and that Wells was unaware of it. Swafford also said several witnesses were prepared to testify that Wells had very little to drink at the party and was not intoxicated when she left. He said she was swerving on the road because she was trying to find the heater controls in her new car.

    It's OK, though, if she swerves on the road while trying to find the controls of her cell phone.

    The only vaguely interesting characters in this story are the mysterious dope smoking hitchhikers. I mean, what self respecting hitchhikers would leave half a joint and their marijuana 'cases' in some random ride?

    True Story: My mom was stopped by a cop 3 years ago and and given a written warning. It was night and she had failed to dim her bright beams as he approached from the opposite direction. When he asked her to turn off the bright beams she didn't know how; because she didn't know where they were. :rolleyes: She'd only had that car two years; but in her defense she next to never drives at night. In fact she was on her way home from a ladies bible study meeting. Since then she makes sure somebody picks her up for ladies bible study meetings. :biggrin1:

    I concur 100%

    Though I must say that Mary Anne always was a bit jealous of Ginger and maybe thats why she was smoking... Too forget her troubles after that eventful 3 hour cruise

    How dare they bust Mary Ann!! Busting one of the most beloved people in American culture?! Weren't all those years on that uncharted island hell enough for her? Obviously she's self-medicating for PTSD. I'm appalled at how little help all of the castaways received following their return to Hawaii.

    We need to start a guerrilla movement to free Mary Ann. I say give her a free pass for all she's meant to so many American men over the years: A paragon of feminine virtue and beauty; of the independence and resourcefulness of the American woman in the face of disaster; of endless sacrifice for the good of the group.

    A jail term? HELL NO!! She deserves a Presidential Medal of Freedom!
