LOS ANGELES — Former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Vivica A. Fox has been booked on a drunken driving charge that could subject her to a $1,000 fine and a jail term as long as six months.

Fox was ordered by a judge on Monday to turn herself in or face a warrant for her arrest.

Fox was stopped in the San Fernando Valley on March 20 by California Highway Patrol officers who said her 2007 Cadillac Escalade was doing 80 mph and weaving on the Ventura Freeway.

During her arrest, the black actress accused one officer of being a "racist white cop," according to a CHP report.


In September, Fox pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit of .08.
