Hollywood actress Vivica A. Fox has been officially booked on misdemeanour DUI charges stemming from her March arrest during a traffic stop.
On March 20, 2007, the 43-year-old was arrested for DUI after she passed a marked police car while going 80 mph on freeway. When tested she was found to be driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08 percent.
A Los Angeles City Attorney's Office spokesman said that the defence counsel requested that she be allowed to turn herself in for processing.
The cop who put the cuffs on her the night of Mar. 20 stated in his report that Fox, used racist language toward him and the other patrolman at the scene.
"Fox began to walk away, yelling at my partner, 'Brother, help a sister, are you going to let this racist white cop do this...Well, are you?" E!Online quoted the cop, as stating in his report.
But since her alleged behaviour Fox has not spoken up.
Her next hearing is scheduled for Dec 9.
