Publicist Jonathan Jaxson spoke with ET, revealing that the arrest took place after an attempted intervention was held for the actress, saying, , "I didn't want her to go to jail and be charged, I wanted her to get help and be sober for a minute and realize reality, and hope she sees that so many care and love her."
