actor Michelle Rodriguez left jail after serving a sentence for drunken driving.
Rodriguez was sentenced to five days in jail and fined $500 after she pleaded guity Tuesday. She entered the Oahu Community Correctional Centre later that day.
Rodriguez, who was credited for one day served because of time spent in custody after her arrest last year, was released yesterday after serving about 65 hours.
OCCC Warden Nolan Espinda said inmates receive full credit for any portion of a day served.
It was an uneventful stay for Rodriguez, who lived in a dorm with 60 other female inmates, Espinda said. She could read and watch TV, and she had to keep her area clean, he said.
No media were present when Rodriguez was released.

Rodriguez, 27, who portrays police officer Ana Lucia on the ABC drama, chose the jail time and fine rather than perform 240 hours of community service.
She and fellow Lost cast member Cynthia Watros were both charged with drunken driving after they were pulled over December 1, in separate cars within 15 minutes of each other.
Watros, who plays Libby, pleaded guilty to drunken driving in January and was fined $312, ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment and 14 hours of counseling.
She also had her license suspended for 90 days.
Rodriguez's troubles with the law aren't over. She's serving three years probation after pleading no contest in 2004 in Los Angeles to three traffic violations, including drunken driving.
