Sultry French actress Beatrice Dalle, star of the international hit "Betty Blue," was placed under investigation Friday on suspicion of being an accomplice to the use and sale of drugs, justice sources said.

Judge Roger le Loire decided, however, that Dalle, 31, should not be investigated in connection with the more serious counts of using and dealing drugs herself. He accepted her explanation that half a gram of heroin and half a gram of cocaine police seized at her Paris home Tuesday had been left there by friends.The judge released Dalle, who spent three days in jail, ordering her to see a doctor pending the outcome of the investigation.
