"Vivica A. Fox booked on DUI charge in LA"

(AP) Former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Vivica A. Fox waltzed into a San Fernando Valley police station Wednesday and was booked for investigation of drunken driving. Fox, 43, was ordered by a judge on Monday to turn herself in or face a warrant for her arrest.

At about 12:15 p.m., Fox went into a police station in Northridge, where she was fingerprinted and photographed, police Officer Ana Aguirre said.

The booking process took under 25 minutes and Fox was released without bail, Aguirre said.

A call to Fox's manager seeking comment was not immediately returned Wednesday.

Fox was stopped in the Valley on March 20 by California Highway Patrol officers who said her 2007 Cadillac Escalade was doing 80 mph and weaving on the Ventura Freeway.

During her arrest, the black actress accused one officer of being a "racist white cop," according to a CHP report.

In September, Fox pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit of .08.

If convicted, she could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
