Mary Ann meets Mary Jane

A surprise birthday party for Dawn Wells, the actress who played Mary Jane Mary Ann on "Gilligan's Island," ended with a nearly three-hour tour of the Teton County sheriff's office and jail when the 69-year-old was caught with marijuana in her vehicle while driving home.

The actress was pulled over on October 18th of last year after a deputy sheriff observed her swerve across the fog lines and center lines of State Highway 33 and repeatedly speed up and slow down. In addition to a strong smell of marijuana, the officer noted that all four of the vehicles windows were down and that Miss Wells was not wearing a jacket.

Wells claimed that she'd just dropped off three hitchhikers who began smoking in her vehicle, but several half-smoked joints were found in the ashtrays and a field sobriety test was failed. Wells was arrested and released on $4,ooo bond. She plead not guilty and was scheduled for trial tomorrow, but has avoided that by plea agreement. She will serve six months' unsupervised probation, in addition to five days served and a fine of $410.50. More serious charges were dropped in return for the plea bargain.

Now we know why she had such a hold over Gilligan - it WAS the coconut cream pies. Or at least the secret ingredient. . .the more you eat, the more you want to eat! I'm surprised they EVER got off of that godforsaken island!

Wow...I have the feeling it was the Professor who was cooking up some good stuff to snort for the Skipper and his crew.

I actually have a cheesy looking cookie jar that my mom brought with her when she moved back to Chicago that is in the shape of a grass shack and when you open the lid it plays the actual song from Gilligan's Island. It's so bizarre. I put it away in the closet in case I ever have to come up with a gift for someone I don't like. Come to think of it, it would be a good place to hide a stash. Grass shack to hide some grass??? No???

The ol' "hitchhikers were smoking in the vehicle defense.", getting a plea bargain was probably a good idea.

I'm sure she just has glaucoma. I don't know why she just didn't tell them that. Btw - she sure doesn't look cute any more!!!
