Michelle Rodriguez Free After Serving Four Hours in Jail

May 31, 2006 | 5:23am EDT

Michelle Rodriguez is a free woman after serving just hours of her 60-day drink-driving jail sentence.

The LOST star checked herself into jail in Los Angeles last Thursday but was out by the weekend, according to entertainment news website TMZ.com.

Insiders claim the actress spent just four hours and 27 minutes behind bars - a byproduct of overcrowding and budget problems.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office insists Rodriguez was released as part of a book and release program, typical for non-violent offenders with sentences of less than 90 days.

Rodriguez made the most of her freedom - the Girlfight star was spotted ringside at the Ultimate Fighting Championships in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Before turning herself into officials on Thursday, Rodriguez  insisted she was planning to move to France upon her release from prison.

She said, "I'm moving to France... People don't bother you there. I do what I got to do and then I leave the country and never come back."
