According to a law enforcement officer, the 33-year-old DJ was driving her black Porsche Targa 89 m.p.h. in a 70 m.p.h. zone. "Speed was why she was stopped, but she was arrested on [two] misdemeanors of driving under the influence," an officer told Us. "When she was stopped, she showed signs of being impaired. [The officer] gave her balance tests and she showed signs of alcohol intoxication."

Ronson, who famously dated Lindsay Lohan off and on from 2008 to 2009, was alone at the time of the arrest. "She was friendly and talkative," an officer said. "She was cooperative throughout the whole ordeal."
