Pain for 'Joy'
Kinston native and Society favorite Jaime Pressly was arrested last night on suspicion of DUI, according to various sources.
Pressly, who played "Joy" on TV's "My Name Is Earl," was taken into custody in Santa Monica, California, after police performed a field sobriety test.
No word at the moment on whether or not Pressly was released or if she's still in custody. Her bail had been set at $15,000.
Pressly received two Emmy nominations for her role as Joy on "My Name is Earl," and she won the Emmy in 2007. She published a memoir early in 2009 called "It's Not Necessarily the Truth: Dreaming Bigger Than the Town You're From."
