Actress Vivica A. Fox Charged With DUI

LOS ANGELES (March 24, 2007) — Vivica A. Fox was charged Friday with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit, officials said.

If convicted, the 42-year-old actress faces a maximum six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine, city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

Fox was arrested late Tuesday after passing a patrol car on the Hollywood Freeway at 80 mph and subsequently failing a field sobriety test, authorities said. Breathalyzer tests indicated her blood-alcohol level was greater than .08 percent, the legal limit for a driver.

Fox was released from jail early Wednesday.

A woman who answered the phone at the office of Fox’s manager, Lita Richardson, said, “We have no comment,” then hung up.

Fox, a contestant on last year’s “Dancing with the Stars,” has appeared in such films as “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” “Soul Food” and “Independence Day.”

Her arraignment was set for May 17, Mateljan said.
