Linda's rep told TMZ that she was on her way from from a jewelry function where she drank a glass of champagne on an empty stomach, which didn't combine well with the antibiotics she is on. Her rep also says that Linda was initially pulled over for speeding.

TMZ reports that Linda's citation listed her blood alcohol level as .084. (The legal limit in California is .08.)

Linda split from Hulk (real name: Terry Bollea) in 2007 after 24 years of marriage. On Thursday, a tape of the Hulk, 59, having sex with an unidentified woman was posted on websites.

"This tape was made secretly without Hulk's knowledge or permission," the WWE star's attorney, David R. Houston, told TMZ in a statement. "We are going to do everything in our power to figure out who did it. Anyone displaying the tape will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law."
