UPDATE: Christina Aguilera & Boyfriend Both Released from Police Custody

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for the West Hollywood Sheriff's department, has confirmed that both Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend Matt Rutler are both now out of police custody after an early-morning incident Tuesday that saw her arrested on suspicion for being drunk in public and Rutler arrested for allegedly driving under the influence. Whitmore says Aguilera will not be prosecuted.

According to Whitmore, Rutler was stopped at 2:45 a.m. Tuesday because his Mustang was burning rubber.  His blood alcohol content was .09.  Christina, a passenger in the car, was taken to the sheriff's office as a "public wellness issue" because she was "extremely drunk" at the scene.  The singer told police she didn't know where she lived because she didn't drive, so she was put in a cell until she was able to make a phone call.  According to Whitmore, she left at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, and was picked up by a man believed to be her bodyguard.

Rutler's bail was set at $30,000.  He left police custody at 9:30 a.m.  Both he and Christina were described as being "cooperative."

E! Online has obtained Aguilera's mug shot, which was not released publicly by authorities.

Lately, the recently-divorced Aguilera has been under a microscope for a series of public missteps, including blowing a lyric of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, stumbling onstage at the Grammys and allegedly misbehaving at a celebrity party.
