Alexandra Forbes Kerry, 36, was arrested early this morning in Hollywood for allegedly driving while drunk. Pulled over for a traffic stop around 12:40 a.m., Kerry failed a field sobriety test, but refused to take a preliminary alcohol screening test in the field, leading to her arrest and booking at the local area station.

"Cops took her to the station and then conducted a formal blood alcohol test which showed a level of .06," explained TMZ. "Under California law, the legal limit is .08, but a driver can still be prosecuted -- even under a .08 reading -- if the vehicle is being operated unsafely due to alcohol."

She posted a $5,000 bail and was released around 5:25 a.m. Kerry, who is the oldest daughter of Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, is a film producer and director.
