Legal advocate Erin Brockovich has been ordered to complete community service following her arrest for driving a boat while drunk. Brockovich, portrayed by Julia Roberts in the Oscar-winning 2000 movie of the same name, was taken into custody in June (13) on suspicion of steering a motor boat on Lake Mead, near Las Vegas, while under the influence of alcohol. She has now pleaded no contest to a charge of boating under the influence and been handed 25 hours of community service. Brockovich was also ordered to pay a $750 (£500) fine and complete a Boater Safety School course.
