Former adult film star Jenna Jameson was arrested early Friday morning on misdemeanor suspicion of driving under the influence. Jameson's DUI made for an interesting arrest.

The 38-year-old porn legend allegedly ran her car into a light pole in Westminster, Calif., the Associated Press reports. The single car accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. Jameson appeared to show signs of intoxication, according to sources. Police officers reportedly administered a field sobriety test. After presumably determining she was under the influence, they then took the iconic porn queen into custody for suspected DUI.

Talk about a pole dance gone wrong. So where is Jameson now?

Fortunately for her, she was released on bail only six hours after booking, The Hollywood Gossip reports.

As Jameson's accident reveal, allegedly driving drunk is never a good idea. In every state, a DUI conviction carries some pretty steep and embarrassing consequences.

Typically, it can result in your driver's license being suspended anywhere from 90 days to five years, depending on your case's severity. Drivers can also be forced to attend alcohol rehabilitation and driving safety classes. Repeat offenders can even have their cars confiscated or have an ignition lock device installed in it. And of course, there's always the possibility of jail time and fines. Not to mention, you know, possibly dying in the DUI accident itself.

Luckily for Jameson, she only sustained a few minor injuries. She refused medical treatment, according to law enforcement officials. Apparently, they weren't anything she couldn't handle.

So far, Jenna Jameson hasn't released any comment regarding her suspected DUI arrest. Though a statement from her Website says she's well and at home. The former porn actress has appeared in over a hundred pornographic films. In 2008, she confirmed her retirement from acting in adult movies.
