Jason Wahler, a former reality TV star who has struggled with alcohol use, has been charged with drunken driving in Southern California.

The 23-year-old former star of "The Hills" was charged Monday with misdemeanor driving under the influence and having a blood-alcohol level over the limit of .08 percent.

It could not be immediately determined if Wahler had a lawyer or spokesperson.

District attorney's spokeswoman Farrah Emami says Wahler could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

Emami says Wahler had a blood alcohol level of .19 percent when he was stopped by Newport Beach police on March 19 after officers saw him make an abrupt turn and stop in a traffic lane.
