Jaime Pressly pleads not guilty to (very) drunk driving

February 4, 2011 |  5:18 pm

Jaime Pressly pleads not guilty to DUI Jaime Pressly has entered a "not guilty" plea on misdemeanor charges related to her arrest on suspicion of drunk driving last month in Santa Monica.

The "My Name Is Earl" actress was pulled over Jan. 5 and allegedly clocked a blood alcohol content level almost three times the legal limit. On Tuesday, she was charged with driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.20% or greater, according to L.A. Now.

Pressly was required to post $15,000 bail instead of the $5,000 typical in a DUI case -- in line with the high BAC alleged by police.

January was a rough month in general for the Emmy winner: Pressly also filed for divorce from entertainment lawyer Simran Singh, her husband of 16 months.
