Jaime Pressly

Busted for DUI

1/6/2011 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jaime Pressly was arrested late Wednesday night for suspicion of driving under the influence ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Jaime Pressly DUI

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.

I will never understand why people who can easily afford to have a driver, don't. That being said, I have a huge crush on Joy, and as far as I'm concerned, she can do no wrong. Have you seen her naked? Incredible. FREE JOY!!

This is simple. If you are a star, you party/drink then you get a driver. Everyone is happy. No babies and puppies killed, and big hollywood movie star will not be forced into rehab. Where was this woman's friends who are suppose to take her keys away, or was she drinking alone?

Considering the last time Jaime Pressly was in the news was when she was caught on film peeing on the sidewalk outside some restaurant in broad daylight last year, I think it's pretty safe to say this girl has a drinking problem.

Hopefully she gets some help.

Well, let's see what the outcome is before we condemn the woman. Field sobriety tests are notoriously unreliable and very subjective. Even breathalyzers are often inaccurate. I'll keep an open mind.

Damn. This is one of the few hollywood hotties I kinda admire. Even the best of us can screw up and get a DUI, so I'm not going to write her off just for that. But now I'm hearing about this peeing on the sidewalk thing for the first time. Just damn.
