Pamela Bach, ex-wife of “Baywatch” star David Hasselhoff, was recently arrested in Los Angeles for driving under the influence. According to a news report, Bach was pulled over on the Highway 101 at Laurel Canyon Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley. California Highway Patrol officials say Bach registered blood alcohol levels of 0.14 and 0.13 percent during a Breathalyzer test. Bach has a prior DUI arrest on her record in which she pleaded no contest to the charge in August. At the time, she was placed on three years of informal probation. Bach was also ordered to undergo an alcohol treatment program and not to drive with any “measurable amount of alcohol in her blood.”
In the state of California, it is against the law to drive a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs (California Vehicle Code 23152). The same vehicle code section also states that motorists must not drive with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher. The consequences of repeat DUI offenses can be devastating and could include loss of driving privilege, jail time and steep fines.
