First Gilligan, then Mary Ann

Actress Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on the beloved '60s sitcom Gilligan's Island, was recently sentenced to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on 6 months unsupervised probation for alleged marijuana possesion. The 69 year old Wells was pulled over by police in Idaho, after they observed her erratic and seemingly disoriented driving. She then failed a sobriety test, in addition to half-smoked joints and two small cases used to store marijuana being found in her car by the arresting officer. Wells is the founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute and organizer of the region's annual family movie festival called the Spud Fest.
