Stars Behind Bars: 3 Hour Tour Edition

Dawn Wells, better known as Mary-Anne from Gilligan's Island, was caught with marijuana in her car after being pulled over for erratic driving.

I didn't know she had it in her. Turns out she probably didn't.

A friend of hers claims it was his pot in the backseat and Wells told the cops she was swerving trying to find the heat/AC controls in her new car.

Despite her pretty solid story, Wells pleaded guilty to the reckless driving charge. The judge sentenced her to 5 days in jail, a $40o+ fine and six months of probation.

If this had been 40 years ago, she probably would've gotten out of the whole thing by signing a few autographs or flashing the officer. To be an aging sex symbol...single tear.
