Posted on

Actress Lori Petty, 45, was arrested Saturday night on felony drunk driving charges after hitting a 14-year-old skateboarder in Venice, Calif.

Police and paramedics arrived at the scene of the accident at 9:30 p.m. The skateboarder was treated for his injuries and released.

Petty, who starred in Point Break, Tank Girl and A League of Their Own, was booked into the Van Nuys jail and eventually released on $100,000 bail.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department said the circumstances surrounding the accident are still unclear. Detectives with the LAPD’s traffic division will determine if a follow-up investigation is necessary. Petty’s blood-alcohol level isn’t being released at this time.

Calls to Petty’s spokesman were not returned.
