De Mornay Rocked with DUI Charges (E! Online)

Los Angeles (E! Online) - Its the night before Halloween that continues to haunt Rebecca De Mornay.

The 48-year-old actress was charged Thursday with driving under the influence in connection with her Oct. 30 bust following a traffic stop, according to the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office.

De Mornay is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on counts of DUI and driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or above, both misdemeanors. She does not have to appear in person.

Beverly Hills police said at the time that the Hand that Rocks the Cradle star was pulled over near Sunset Boulevard at about 10:30 p.m. after committing an unspecified traffic violation. Officers immediately detected an odor of an alcoholic beverage, spokesman Lieutenant Tony Lee said, and promptly administered field sobriety tests, which De Mornay did not pass.

She was taken into custody and released after being cited for DUI. Authorities said that her blood-alcohol level registered at 0.09 percent, slightly above Californias legal 0.08 limit.

De Mornay most recently appeared in the surf-centric HBO series John from Cincinnati and the skateboarding film Lords of Dogtown.
