Linda Hogan, 53, whose real name is Linda Bollea, was arrested Thursday morning by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies about 1:30 a.m. and released shortly before 9 a.m. from the Lost Hills station on $5,000 bail.

"A deputy saw a black Mercedes-Benz driving erratically on the westbound 101 Freeway. The deputy made a traffic stop of the vehicle on the Ventura Freeway at Kanan Road, Calabasas, to conduct a drunk-driving investigation," a sheriff's statement said.

She had been attending a jewelry event in the area and was heading home to Simi Valley when she was taken into custody; she allegedly had a blood-alcohol level just over the legal limit of 0.08.

"She’s a mom, so she’s embarrassed about it," her lawyer, Raymond Rafool, told the New York Daily News.

The Hogans had a highly publicized divorce in 2009.
