Semhar Tadesse -- the first person booted from this season of "Survivor" -- has been charged with DUI ... a month after she was popped in L.A. on suspicion of drunk driving.

TMZ broke the story ... Semhar was pulled over on October 27 after allegedly running a red light. Cops administered a field sobriety test and Semhar allegedly blew a .14 ... nearly twice the legal limit in California.

Semhar was charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI last week -- one for driving under the influence, and one for driving with blood alcohol level of .08 or higher.

Her arraignment's scheduled for December 16.

She made TMZ, gonna be pissed to see that most of the comments were from some loser webstore. One thing I remember about this girl other then that she had a bad attitude...great breasts.

Good thing she didn't start spewing some of her crappy 'spoken word' to the cop or she also would have been charged with polluting the air. Hilarious to see Survivor contestants get to the island and then complain endlessly. One of the worst contestants ever. Her future ex-husband is a lucky guy.

Again, 30 days suspended drivers license, court costs, AA classes, 90 day Alcohol Awareness classes and 3 years probation.

Oh, and extremely high car insurance rates for the next 10 years.

Too bad she's not a lohan, huh?

Agree. She's WAY most talented, attractive and smells better than Linds. I hope she gets Judge Sautner. If she can afford LaShawn Holley for an attorney - L.A. will end up paying HER.
