‘Young And The Restless’ Star Faces DUI Charge

STUDIO CITY (CBS) — “The Young and the Restless” actor Kristoff St. John faces a possible drunk driving charge after being arrested on the Ventura (101) Freeway in Studio City.

The 44-year-old actor was pulled over on the eastbound 101 Freeway at Laurel Canyon Boulevard about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Harris said.

St. John was driving a silver Porsche at about 90 mph, prompting the traffic stop, Harris said.

St. John was given a field sobriety test, then was booked at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys jail on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

St. John was released Sunday night after posting $5,000 bail, according to TMZ.com.
