The New York tabloids were quick to report yesterday that Julie Pacino, Al Pacino‘s 21 year old daughter, was arrested for DUI on Friday night. According to my sources, Julie was driving a friend’s Mercedes from California with expired registration. She told the cops she’d had three beers and had smoked some pot earlier the evening. She was arraigned and released. But here’s just a thought: Julie Pacino is no Lindsay Lohan. This is a mistake to be sure, but not a lifestyle. Julie Pacino, though young, has been working hard to start a career as a filmmaker. Let’s give her some credit. She’s had short films in a couple of film festivals already. I ran into her in Cannes a couple of months ago, and she was not partying. She was working, with her business partner, getting out her product. She’s written and produced a short, called “Abracadabra.” And she’s just produced a feature film called “Billy Bates,” directed by Jennifer DeLia. Julie Pacino’s incident on Friday night sounds like a youthful error–and hopefully, a one time thing.
