Eliza Dushku and her boyfriend Rick Fox endured a long drive through the Californian desert to support her brother at a court appearance on Thursday (22Apr10).
The couple drove 115 miles (185 kilometres) from Los Angeles to a courtroom in Barstow, California, where Dushku's elder sibling, Nathaniel Dushku, was summoned to answer a speeding charge.
He was allegedly caught by cops racing down a freeway at more than 100 miles-per-hour (161 km/ph), but the officer who stopped the actor reportedly failed to appear at the court session, and the ticket was dismissed, according to TMZ.com.
