David Hasselhoff's ex-wife Pamela Bach is tackling her alcohol problems head on by turning to a support group following her weekend arrest for driving under the influence (DUI).
The actress was taken into custody in California on Saturday (28Nov09), where she was booked and later released on her own recognisance.
It was her second DUI arrest this year (09) - she was previously busted in March and sentenced to probation after pleading no contest to the charge.
Bach has blamed her latest run-in with the law on the embattled Baywatch star's personal issues after he was hospitalised for a reported seizure on Friday (27Nov09).
She claims she had spent Saturday comforting her daughters before heading to dinner with friends, where she indulged in a few drinks.
But Bach, whose split from Hasselhoff was finalised in 2007, is ashamed of her behaviour.
She tells TMZ.com, "I am remorseful and mortified. I am going through a really difficult time between David being in the hospital and dealing with the divorce."
But the actress is determined to overcome her drink troubles and headed straight to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (29Nov09) to seek professional help.
Hasselhoff is recovering at home after being discharged from Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
