Reality TV star JASON WAHLER has been charged with two counts of driving under the influence (DUI) following his arrest in California earlier this month (Mar10).
The former The Hills star was taken into custody in Newport Beach on 19 March (10), just days after finding himself in trouble with police in Mexico following a bar brawl.
Wahler's latest run-in with the law has left him facing up to six months in jail if convicted, after the Orange County District Attorney filed two crimes against him on Tuesday (30Mar10), reports TMZ.com.
He has since returned to his sobriety meetings in a bid to kick his drink problem once and for all.
After the California arrest, he said, "I never want to drink again. If I don’t stay sober. I am not going to have a life."
Wahler has had a number of alcohol-related troubles in recent years - he was busted in Seattle, Washington last year (09) and charged with assault and minor drinking following a scuffle, while he was ordered to attend rehab in 2008 after punching a tow truck driver in the face. He was also jailed in 2007 for fighting in the lobby of a Seattle hotel.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
