SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors in California have charged Jaime Pressly with misdemeanor drunken driving.

The 33-year-old "My Name is Earl" co-star was arrested Jan. 5 after Santa Monica police say she was stopped for a traffic violation. She was released after posting $15,000 bail.

Deputy City Attorney Melanie Skehar says Pressly was charged Tuesday morning with driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content of .20 or higher.

An e-mail message for Pressly's publicist was not immediately returned.

The charges were first reported Tuesday by celebrity website TMZ.
