David Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley was arrested on a DUI charge in southern California over the weekend, after being found asleep in her vehicle on the 101 freeway, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol told TheWrap on Monday.
Hasselhoff, an actor in her own right whose credits include “Huge,” Fearless” and “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens,” Hasselhoff was arrested at 4 a.m. on Saturday after citizens reported a stopped vehicle on the eastbound 101 freeway at the Fallbrook Ave. exit, with the driver “slumped over at the wheel,” according to law enforcement.
Officers arrived at the location and saw Hasselhoff’s white Mercedes-Benz blocking a lane of the off-ramp. Inside the vehicle, police said, officers observed Hasselhoff slumped forward in the driver’s seat, with the vehicle in drive, her foot on the brake and the doors locked.
Once officers were able to wake Hasselhoff and get her out the car, they “smelled a strong odor of alcohol emitting from her breath and person, and observed objective signs of impairment.”
Hasselhoff was determined to be “under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs” after field sobriety tests were performed.
The actress was transported to the hospital and, after being medically cleared, was taken to the LAPD’s Van Nuys jail, were she was booked for driving under the influence.
