2011 is already proving to be a bad year for Jaime Pressly. The My Name Is Earl star was arrested late Wednesday night on suspicion of drunk driving.
According to TMZ.com, the actress was taken to the Santa Monica jail after being pulled over and arrested following a traffic violation. Sources say the 33-year-old mom is being held on $15,000 bail.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ that there were no drugs found in Jaime’s car. There were also no children in the car at the time of the incident (which took place around 11pm last night).
The fact that Jaime’s bail has been set at $15,000 indicates that the blonde beauty likely had a blood-alcohol level of over 1.5. The normal bail amount for a DUI is $5,000.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why celebrities with millions of dollars cannot pay for a cab ride home after drinking.
There’s no excuse for drinking and driving ever – but especially not with celebrities.
Wonder if Jaime will be the next celeb to check into rehab?
Clearly she has issues.
