The AP reports Yancy Butler has been charged with driving under the influence after crashing her Saab 900 into a wire guard rail in Connecticut. She was also charged Tuesday with with failure to drive in the established lane.
This is the latest in a line of troubles for Yancy, one of my favorite actresses since she played Eve Edison, android partner to an L.A. cop (David Andrews) in Mann and Machine. She went on to play a thief forced into government service by a shady character played by John Glover in South Beach (1993). Best known for the TNT series Witchblade, she was also in Hard Target with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Drop Zone with Wesley Snipes. Spenser fans may remember her as Frank Belson's wife in A&E's adaptation of Thin Air.
