If only you could plead for better headlines.
Emmy-winning actress Jaime Pressly pleaded not guilty to a pair of drunk driving charges Friday, three days after being formally charged in connection with her Jan. 5 arrest at a traffic stop in southern California, The Associated Press reported.
Pressly reportedly faces up to six months behind bars if convicted of driving under the influence and having a blood alcohol content 0.20 or higher.
She has already been ordered to report for Alcoholics Anonymous meetings at least twice a week, according to the AP.
The charges come nearly two weeks after Pressly announced she'd pulled the plug on her marriage to entertainment lawyer Simran Singh, her hubby of a little more than a year.
She’s also found herself in the sights of the IRS for allegedly owing $637,000 in back taxes to the government, according to E!
