The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mother before she died last fall has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. Police said Dr. Jan Adams was seen using an off-ramp to get on a freeway early Thursday in the Northern California town of Vallejo, and was driving on a suspended license from a previous DUI.

The former host of TV's "Plastic Surgery: Before and After" had operated on 58-year-old Donda West the day before she died of likely heart disease coupled with surgery complications.

The state was investigating whether Adams' medical license should be revoked or suspended because of two previous alcohol-related arrests.

Adams was scheduled for arraignment in Solano County Superior Court on Monday.
