Ex-reality TV star arrested for investigation of DUI

A former star of an MTV reality show was arrested for investigation of felony driving under the influence of alcohol after a freeway crash, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Jessica Smith, 19, a cast member of "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," crashed a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle into another car late Monday night on northbound Interstate 5 near Oso Parkway, a CHP report said.

Contributing to the accident was speeding and a wet roadway, the CHP said.

The driver of the other car sustained minor injuries as did a passenger in the car driven by Smith, the report said.

The CHP does not release blood alcohol levels, according to spokesman Chris Goodwin.

Smith remained in custody in lieu of $100,000 (EUR74,923) bail. She was scheduled for an arraignment on Wednesday.
