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.
