Christina was listed at 5'2" and 100 pounds in the booking documents, TMZ reports.

Her boyfriend Matthew, 25, was arrested for a more serious offense — a DUI.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, via TMZ, his bail was set at $30,000.

A TMZ source explained, "If the driver had NOT been arrested for DUI, Christina would have never been in trouble" as Christina was "extremely intoxicated" and "unable to take care of herself," according to law enforcement officials.


Another source close to Christina tells TMZ, the singer's friends have been trying to get her into a rehab program for weeks.
