Emmy Award-winning actress Stockard Channing was jailed for nearly three hours last month after being arrested for alleged drunken driving, city officials said Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Channing, 60, who won an Emmy for her role as first lady on NBC's "The West Wing," was stopped by a California Highway Patrol officer on Dec. 14 for allegedly driving on the shoulder of Highway 101, city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said.

Two misdemeanor counts of driving while under the influence of alcohol were filed against her Monday, Mateljan said.
