BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Rebecca De Mornay has been arrested for investigation of drunken driving, a magazine reported Tuesday.
The actress, who starred in the films "Risky Business" and "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle," was stopped Oct. 30 for a traffic violation in Beverly Hills when officers smelled booze on her breath, according to People magazine. Authorities told the magazine her blood alcohol level was .09 percent, above the legal limit of .08.
"She was very cooperative during the arrest," Lt. Tony Lee, a police spokesman, told the magazine.
Lee did not return telephone calls from The Associated Press, and e-mails and telephone messages for De Mornay's representatives were not returned.
De Mornay had not been charged, said Los Angeles County prosecutor's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons.
De Mornay's screen credits include HBO's surf drama "John From Cincinnati" and the films "American Venus," "Lords of Dogtown" and "Raise Your Voice." She came to prominence playing the prostitute who befriends Tom Cruise's high school student in the 1983 film "Risky Business."
Associated Press records indicate De Mornay's age is 45, while some other sources give it as 48.
