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.

She won't do any jail time. Where's the mug shot?

#1, her kind? I hope you mean famous celebrity.

PLEASE!! Nothing will happen to Vivica. Just like Nicole Richie, slut Paris and all these other celebs go free. If me or some other regular person drove while intoxicated, forget it..These celebs suck. They deserve to suffer like the rest of us.

Has been revealed by Star how Anna died. Not sure if I believe it though. If it was an over dose of sleeping medication the night before, then why was she still warm to the touch at 2pm in the hospital the next day?

Obviously she only died of the blood poisoning and not the sleep aid.

Maybe if DUI's were considered FELONIES instead of misdemeaners, people who drink would THINK to find alternate ways to get home. (many of us have been broke at one time or another but the penalty is much too high to rob a bank -- you get the picture).

Also, #1 & 5 are obviously the same degenerate "person", they need an island or public waste facility for "people like u."

#1 and #5, it never ceases to amaze me how many inbred idiots there are like you. Please stop sleeping with your siblings AND your parents and stop the cycle now.
The world will not survive if you keep mating with family members and birthing pea brained, incest mongors such as yourself.

#1 and #5. You are forgiven for you idiotic comments because you can't help the fact that your mother and father are sister and brother. Now listen, if you stop sleeping with your parents and your first cousins, you can stop the cycle now.

8. Apparently, that is very common, especially since she makes hundreds of thousands
for her work. Sounds good, doesn't it?

No chance she will get in any kind of trouble. She will probably end up getting a new TV series or a starring movie role because of this.

# 1, 5 & 8 - You've got to be kidding, right? Let's just hope that you're not reproducing and breeding hate! Get back inside your trailers where you belong and continue having sex with your mother-sister-cousin or whatever it is you do while you sit home and collect your welfare checks! Do something productive with yourselves, would ya please? Put down the remote, turn off the Jerry Springer show and read a book and educate yourselves. There is no more room for hate and racism in the year 2007 - it's getting pretty old!

why does everyone on this site keep saying, shes a celebrity, nothing will happen to her? i know plenty of people who have been busted for driving while drunk, and none of them were placed in jail. you people are obsessed with the whole "celebrities are invincible" card. get over it. not that im condoing her actions, or anything... but come on. A first time offense rarely gets jail time.
