Oh crap. Jaime Pressly was arrested for DUI in Santa Monica last night. Here’s the low-down from TMZ, y’all.
“The “My Name Is Earl” star was driving in Santa Monica at around 11PM when she was stopped. We’re told cops took notice of her vehicle after she allegedly committed a traffic violation.
A field sobriety test was performed and Jaime was arrested and booked on suspicion of DUI.
She was taken to the Santa Monica jail and held on $15,000 bail.
UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ there were no drugs in Jaime’s car. We’re also told no children were in the car. And, we know, there was no car accident. The only other circumstance in which bail is set at $15,000 — the normal amount is $5,000 — is when the driver’s blood-alcohol level is higher than .15. We have not, however, been able to confirm Jaime’s level.”
Not one to kick a gal when she’s down, buuuttttt. Remember this gem?
Jaime was caught (maybe?) peeing outside the West Hollywood club, The Abbey back in 2009 during her bridal shower. The actress took to Twitter (like YOU would if you had been caught urinating in public) to deny said puddle directly underneath her:
“Yes….that is me doing Dare #8 at my bridal shower,” Jaime tweeted. “Things are NOT always what they seem. Notice my hand in the back –its pouring a bottle of water!!! C’mon guys! Do you think I would really pee in the entry way to the Abbey in broad DAYLIGHT!!!”
I don’t know about y’all, but if I’m pouring out my water bottle, I tend not to dump it right where I’m squatted. (NOT THAT I SQUAT!) So, I call BS on this and always have. Maybe she was pouring out her water–to cover up her pee on the sidewalk? There were plenty of eye-witnesses for this little episode, and sadly they all indicated that she drunk and was indeed peeing.
ANYhear-say. It’s never good to get a DUI. Thank goodness her son wasn’t in the car.
