Marley Shelton’s Double DUI Gets Demoted to Speed Exhibition

Actress Marley Shelton, whose turn as a wicked, anesthesia-wielding hot doctor in Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse made her a familiar face, had a close call with serious jail time.

Shelton was pulled over in Hollywood last May 1 by the police for suspicion of driving under the influence where she subsequently failed a field sobriety test. She was arrested and posted bail worth $5,000 the next morning.

The actress, if convicted of the two misdemeanor DUI charges, could be facing six months in jail and $1,000 in fines.

Her lawyer however, managed to commute her offense as the actress instead pleaded no contest to “speed exhibition” and agreed to be placed on 24 months of informal probation. The actress will now just have to pay a $240 fine plus court costs.

However, if Shelton commits another traffic offense or has any run-ins with the law during that period of probation, she will put all her lawyer’s hard work to waste because she will end up in jail which she narrowly avoided.
