Kelly LeBrock, the 1980s model and actress who was once a dream girl for many teenage boys, was arrested on DUI charges last month near Santa Barbara, Calif.

According to TMZ, LeBrock, 53, was observed swerving across the double yellow line, failing to break at a stop sign, and driving above the 55 mph speed limit when she was pulled over by police on Nov. 22.

The officer administered a field sobriety test after reportedly seeing signs of alcohol impairment. After apparently struggling to complete the test, LeBrock was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Though the arrest occurred more than three weeks ago, news of the DUI charge was first reported Tuesday.

LeBrock has yet to make a public statement about the incident and her representatives reportedly did not respond to media inquiries, the celebrity news site noted.

LeBrock, who began her career as a model, appeared in numerous magazines and advertisements throughout the early to mid-80s. She went on to star in the films "The Woman in Red" alongside Gene Wilder, "Wrongfully Accused" with Leslie Nielsen, and "Hard to Kill" with her ex-husband Steven Seagal.

LeBrock is perhaps best known for the movie "Weird Science," in which two teenage boys set out to create the "perfect" woman on their computer. LeBrock plays the physical embodiment of the "perfect" woman in the movie.

Born in New York City and raised in London, LeBrock was reportedly attempting a Hollywood comeback this year with the launch of her new book, a tell-all about her nasty divorce from Seagal in 1996.

"Writing about that experience in my book has been incredibly painful, but I’m relieved the truth will finally come out," LeBrock told the Daily Mail earlier this year.

"I had absolutely no self-esteem," she added. "I hated myself. I decided to swap my old life in Beverly Hills for a new one in the country, in Santa Barbara. I feared everything and didn’t want to leave the house."

The couple had three children from the marriage.
