Jaime Pressly Arrested For Drunken Driving

SANTA MONICA (AP) — Authorities in California say actress Jaime Pressly has been arrested in Santa Monica for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Lt. Darrell Lowe says the co-star of TV’s “My Name is Earl” was stopped for a traffic violation around 11 p.m. Wednesday and booked on suspicion of DUI but he’s not releasing any details.

Lowe says no traffic collision was involved.

Pressly’s blood-alcohol level wasn’t immediately released.

The Los Angeles County sheriff’s website says the 33-year-old actress-model spent the night in jail and was released Thursday morning after posting $15,000 bail.

An e-mail to her manager seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.
