breaking news"Bio-Dome" star Dara Tomanovich was arrested for DWI in New York ... and she may have tried to get out of it by name dropping ex NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Dara -- who played one of the hot female scientists alongside Kylie Minogue -- reportedly crashed her Porsche in Manhattan earlier this month ... and when cops showed up, she was stumbling around while reeking of booze.
Page Six reports Tomanovich said she was friends with Bloomberg and could get the officers fired or transferred.
The actress then allegedly failed two breathalyzer tests -- she blew .159 and .112 -- and was subsequently taken into custody. She was charged with DWI and released without bail.
