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.

TMZ dont like me    

Always thought she was kinda hot, especially in that Jerry Springer Ringmaster movie, but she does seem like she's probably a little "redneck-ish" in real life too....

The only reason bail was set so high is that they want to keeps her in there for awhile so they can bang her back in solitary.

This woman is an A-1 b*tch. I have heard multiple live radio interviews with her. Hot or not, she was so stuck up and rude. Some of the interviews were unbelievable to listen to. The bottom line is if you're going to be dumb enough to drive after drinking (when you clearly have enough money to have a driver), you will pay the price (at the very least of pubic embarassment).

LOSER!! What an IDIOT. It's great that no kids were in her car, but what about everyone else out on the road? No excuse for drunk drivers, DRIVE DRUNK-LOSE YOUR LICENSE is the way it should be.

In spite of the grimace on her face, she looks FABULOUS!. You go Jaime! Her hair is flawless, her skin looks dewy, and the brows. Clearly she isn't on drugs or drinking recklessly...often.
