"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 February 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving...."
"On October 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." (CNN)
More surprising is that Ms. Wells is now 69 years old. Tempus fugit!
