Pains Star Tracey Gold in Felony DUI Bust

Posted on

The growing pains apparently keep coming for Tracey Gold, who was arrested on felony drunk-driving charges after rolling her SUV down a freeway embankment, injuring one of her young sons, the Smoking Gun Web site reports.

Gold, 35, who starred on the 1985-92 TV series Growing Pains, was arrested Sept. 3 by California Highway Patrol officers and charged with a felony count of driving under the influence and causing injury, Ventura County Sheriff’s spokesman Eric Nishimoto tells the site.

CHP spokesman Steve Reid says that Gold was driving a 2001 GMC Yukon – with her husband and three sons inside – when she lost control of the vehicle off California’s Highway 118. Gold’s husband, Roby Marshall, and two of their sons (ages 5 and 4 months) were not seriously injured but their eldest child, 7-year-old Sage, suffered a broken clavicle and a head laceration.

After CHP officers administered sobriety tests, Gold was arrested and booked under her married name, Tracey Gold Marshall. She spent five hours behind bars before being released on $50,000 bail. She is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 19.

In the early ’90s, Gold went public with her battle against anorexia and became a highly visible spokesperson for the disease.
