Police in California say former actress Tawny Kitaen has been arrested for investigation of driving under the influence. Newport Beach police Sgt. Shontel Sherwood says Kitaen was arrested at about 3 p.m. Saturday when officers suspected she had been driving her Range Rover under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Kitaen was still in custody early Saturday evening.

William Briggs, an attorney who has previously represented Kitaen, did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

The 48-year-old Kitaen recently appeared on the VH1 reality show "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."

She first found fame appearing in 1980s music videos for future husband David Coverdale's band Whitesnake. She also played the bride-to-be of Tom Hanks' character in the 1984 film "Bachelor Party."
