Former porn star star Asia Carrera was arrested last week in Utah for drunk driving, CBS affiliate KENS 5 Eyewitness News confirmed Sunday, Mar. 8, and she confessed that she had taken her daughter to school while inebriated.

Carrera (nee Jessica Steinhauser), 41, was discovered sound asleep on a couch in the office of the Washington County School District in St. George, Utah, when police officers were notified last Thursday.

Upon arrival, authorities smelled alcohol on Carrera's breath. She told the officer that she had driven her daughter to the office for testing, then attempted to flee the scene. The former adult film star then failed multiple field sobriety tests and blew nearly twice the legal blood alcohol level permitted in the state of Utah.

Last November, Carrera made headlines after famously taking her driver's license photo with a colander atop her head to honor the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. According to KENS 5, she was charged of driving under the influence with a child, and held on $10,000 bail.

Carrera lost her husband to a car accident in 2006. Five years after the tragedy, she opened up to Verbacide magazine in an interview about life after her 12-year porn career.

"Well, as the only parent my children have left alive, I dedicate myself to them 100 percent, of course," she told the mag. "But this fall, both kids will be in school full-time for the first time, and I will have some time to myself. I plan to do volunteer work. Probably helping out at the local animal shelter, and a part-time job at the dinosaur museum, working with the paleontologists and learning more about what they do and how they do it. I’m still a learning junkie after all these years!"
