SANTA MONICA (AP) — Prosecutors in Santa Monica charged actress Jaime Pressly with misdemeanor drunken driving Tuesday.

The 33-year-old “My Name Is Earl” star was arrested Jan. 5 after Santa Monica police say she was stopped for a traffic violation. She was released after posting $15,000 bail.

Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar says Pressly was charged Tuesday morning with driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content of .20 or higher.
