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.
