First Lady Arrested for DUI

Not the real one.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Emmy-winning actress Stockard Channing was arrested for investigation of drunken driving after she tried to drive around a roadblock on the Hollywood Freeway, authorities said Tuesday.

Channing, 60, who won an Emmy for her role as first lady on NBC’s “The West Wing,” was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers on Dec. 14. She was jailed nearly three hours before being released without bail, the Sheriff’s Department said.
