First Lady of West Wing on Drunk Driving Charge

Star of “The West Wing” Stockard Channing has been charged with drunk driving.

Police announced on Tuesday that Channing had been stopped on a Los Angeles Freeway last month after driving through roadblock and past highway patrol officers who were attending an accident.

The police say officers on the scene could smell alcohol and after Channing failed a sobriety test they arrested her and charged the actress with driving under the influence of alcohol.

Proceedings will take place in February.

Channing is most famous for her role as the first lady in the popular political drama.
