Samantha Ronson Facing Misdemeanor Charges Related To DUI Arrest

Samantha Ronson will face a judge over her driving under the influence arrest earlier this month.

On Tuesday, Access Hollywood confirmed that the celebrity DJ has been charged with two misdemeanor counts – for driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level above .08.

The maximum penalty if Ronson is convicted is 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

As previously reported on, Ronson was arrested on Aug. 1 on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The celebrity DJ was stopped outside of Baker, Calif., at 10:31 AM for speeding in her black Porsche. She was clocked going 89 MPH in a 70 MPH zone, California Highway Patrol said in a statement released to Access Hollywood at the time.

After Ronson was stopped, law enforcement officials said she displayed signs of alcohol intoxication and was given a series of field sobriety tests and then arrested.

Ronson refused a portable breath test on the scene, but submitted to a breath test at the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Substation in Baker. She was then later booked at the Sheriff’s jail in Barstow, Calif., and released on Monday, Aug. 1, at 5:30 PM

CHP said Ronson was “cooperative” during the booking.

TMZ first reported news of the charges.
