Driving ban for Lost star Watros
Cynthia Watros
Watros joined US castaway drama Lost in its second season
Lost star Cynthia Watros has been banned from driving after admitting being over the alcohol limit.

Watros, who plays psychologist Libby, was seen driving erratically in Kailua, Hawaii - where the US drama series is filmed - last month.

She was fined $370 (210) and had her driving licence suspended for 90 days after admitting drink-driving.

Kaneohe District Court also ordered the 37-year-old actress to undergo 14 hours of counselling.

'No fun'

A charge for crossing a white line was dropped under an agreement with prosecutors.

District Judge James Dannenberg told Watros: "This is no fun, but you know how much worse it could have been. Get on with your life, and I wish you luck."

Her co-star Michelle Rodriguez was also charged with drink driving after being pulled over on the same road within 15 minutes of Watros on 1 December.

Rodriguez plays police officer Ana Lucia in Lost and starred in action movie The Fast and the Furious.

The 27-year-old actress is due to stand trial on 30 March after pleading not guilty to the charge last month.
