Rebecca De Mornay faces California DUI

California DUI attorney news

Actress Rebecca De Mornay has been charged with misdemeanor California DUI drunk driving following her arrest two months ago.

The "Risky Business" actress was charged with one count of California DUI driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and one count of California DUI driving with a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of .08, a Los Angeles District Attorney's California DUI spokeswoman said Thursday.

De Mornay was arrested Oct. 30 for a traffic violation in Beverly Hills when officers smelled alcohol on her breath. She is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

Calls to her representatives weren't immediately returned. No California DUI lawyer has spoke on her behalf.

De Mornay is best known for playing the prostitute who befriends Tom Cruise's high school student in the 1983 film "Risky Business." Her other screen credits include "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," "Backdraft" and "Lords of Dogtown." She recently appeared in the HBO drama "John From Cincinnati" which was quickly canceled.
