Environmental activist Erin Brockovich, portrayed by Julia Roberts in a 2000 movie about her fight over the pollution of a California town, was arrested on suspicion of boating while intoxicated at Lake Mead near Las Vegas, authorities said Sunday.
"She was not sure how to maneuver the boat into the dock," Mr. Lyngar told The Associated Press. "It's a simple thing if you can think clearly, but if you add alcohol and unfamiliarity of the area, it can all cause serious problems."
A game warden noticed she was struggling and needed assistance while trying to moor her motor boat at the Las Vegas Boat Harbor, he said.
