Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island busted for pot possession?

Ginger I could understand, she's a redheaded floozy from Hollywood, but my sweet Mary Ann? I am all busted up about this.

Dawn Wells a.k.a Mary Ann had a bad day.

Under a plea agreement, three misdemeanor counts — driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance — were dropped.

On Oct. 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.

The 69-year-old Wells, founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute and organizer of the region's annual family movie festival called the Spud Fest, then failed a sobriety test.

The Spud Festival? Hey its Idaho, what else are you going to do in the winter, there is only so much knitting and wood duck carving one can do.
