Actress Jaime Pressly has pulled out of red carpet duties at two events in Las Vegas this Friday after she was formally charged with driving under the influence on Tuesday.
The My Name Is Earl star’s car was pulled over by police in Santa Monica, California for a suspected traffic violation on 5 January and she was taken into custody after struggling to complete a field sobriety test.

Pressly, who is free on $15,000 bail, has now been hit with two counts of DUI by the Santa Monica City Attorney and she faces up to six months behind bars if convicted.

Pressly had agreed to host lavish parties at Sin City’s Rain and Moon nightclubs, but her red carpet appearances have now been cancelled following her legal woes.
