Mischa Barton DUI case still dragging along



Tbdmischabarton022908 After winning a continuance Thursday in Beverly Hills, Mischa Barton is hoping to strike a deal in her DUI case before the next hearing, reports.

Her lawyer, Anthony Salerno, tells the site that Mischa is taking the charges very seriously and was glad she wasn’t charged with a felony for holding 28.5 grams of Mary Jane when she was arrested in West Hollywood on Dec. 27 (it’s only a misdemeanor).

The site says the court will likely accept a deal for probation and alcohol awareness classes, but she’ll still have to get that whole no-drivers-license thing straightened out.
