Jaime Pressly in drink-drive charge
Prosecutors in California have charged Jaime Pressly with misdemeanor drunken driving.
The 33-year-old My Name is Earl co-star was arrested on January 5 after Santa Monica police say she was stopped for a traffic violation. She was released after posting $15,000 (€11,000) bail.
Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar said that Pressly was charged on Tuesday morning with driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content of .20 or higher.
An email message for Pressly's publicist was not immediately returned.
The charges were first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
