While David Hasselhoff was reportedly in the psych ward this weekend, his ex-wife, Pamela Bach, was said to have been in the drunk tank. David has since been released from the hospital and Pamela from jail, but Pamela has a lawsuit to face from another alleged DUI incident.
The New York Daily News reports that Pamela was arrested Saturday night on charges of driving on the influence on the 101 Freeway near Laurel Canyon Blvd. in Calif.
The California Highway Patrol brought her to Van Nuys jail and she was later released on her own recognizance.
“There was no bail. She is fine,” Pamela’s publicist said. “She was picked up and driven home by a friend.”
This might not have been her first alleged DUI, however, and TMZ now reports that Pamela is being sued for an incident from March.
Mitchell Paulson claims that Pamela was driving under the influence when she hit his car and injured him.
Pamela plead no contest to the DUI and was placed on probation.
She will probably go to jail for the repeated offense.
Her ex-husband David had a happier end to his weekend crisis. He has been released from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after staying two days.
The nature of his illness has still not been confirmed yet, but his attorney, Mel Goldsman said, “David is home now and he’s fine.”
