Troubles
She was expelled from five schools.
Later dropped out of high school at the age of 17
Attended business school but quit to pursue a career in acting, with a goal of becoming a screenwriter & director.
In March 2002, Michelle was arrested for assault after getting into a fight with her roommate
In November 2003, she went to court to face eight charges based on two driving incidents: a hit and run and DUI.
In June 2004, she pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to three of the charges: hit and run, drunken driving, and driving with a suspended license. She went to jail for 48 hours, performed community service, completed a three-month alcohol program, and was placed on probation for three years.
On December 1, 2005, Michelle was arrested for DUI. she pleaded not guilty, but on the day of her trial in April 2006, she pleaded guilty to one charge of DUI. She chose to pay a $500 fine and spend five days in jail instead of doing 240 hours of community service.
Michelle said her high doses of allergy-relieving steroids as part of the reason for her behavior.
In September 2007, Michelle allegedly violated her probation by not completing her community service & not following an alcohol education program. It was said that she submitted a document stating she completed community service on September 5, 2006, but it was later confirmed she was actually in New York City that day.
On October 10, 2007, she was sentenced to 180 days jail time after agreeing to admit to violating her probation. She was expected to spend 180-day term in jail, as she had been ineligible for work furloughs and house arrest. However, after turning herself in, she was released eighteen days later on January 9, 2008, because of overcrowding.

Michelle's Quotes
"I don't think it's narcissistic at all to love yourself and believe in yourself. I think some people are really scared to do that. I have to. If I don't, I would not succeed in what I do."

"You can keep knocking me down forever, I'll keep getting up and trying"

"No matter what, people are so narrow minded that it won't ever be Michelle Rodriguez the actress, it will always be Michelle Rodriguez the Latin actress. And it's just something that I have to live with, because of the fact that people need labels to understand things. I can't even get into this ignorance that I'm dealing with. So I just ignore it, you know? Ignore the ignorance."
