Vivica A. Fox Charged With DUI

3/23/2007 3:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vivica A. FoxTMZ has learned that actress Vivica A. Fox has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI, stemming from a Tuesday night arrest.

Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan confirmed that Fox was charged with one count of driving while impaired and one count of driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. Sources tell TMZ that Fox blew a .09 when she took a breathalyzer test.

If convicted on both counts, Fox faces a maximum six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

TMZ first reported that CHP officers pulled over Fox's 2007 Cadillac Escalade late Tuesday night after she flew past a marked patrol car at approximately 80 mph. The former "Dancing with Stars" contestant then failed a field sobriety test and was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Fox is due back in court on May 17.
