Former Melrose Place actress Amy Locane has been arrested and is being held on a $50,000 bond after police say she collided with another car while driving drunk, killing the passenger and critically injuring the driver. And, according to Acting Somerset County Prosecutor A. Peter DeMarco Jr., the fatal accident wasn't her first of the night. According to police, Locane was driving drunk Sunday night when she smashed her SUV into the passenger side of a sedan as it was turning into a driveway in Montgomery Township, N.J., about 10 miles north of Princeton. The driver, Fred Seeman, was hospitalized in critical condition; his wife Helene died at the scene.
Locane admitted to police later Sunday evening that she had downed several glasses of wine prior to driving. The actress has two young children with her husband Mark, a wine specialist. She now faces charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. IF convicted, she could get at least 10 years in prison.
