Oh no! Though Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss has been sober since 1982, his wife of eight years, Svetlana Dreyfuss, hasn't followed suit. According to TMZ, the Russian-born blonde was arrested on June 2 after allegedly crashing her car into a wooden fence and fleeing the scene. 

Police caught up with her two miles from the crash site in Encinitas, Calif. and booked her for a DUI and hit-and-run. Svetlana reportedly told TMZ she passed her field sobriety test, claiming she only had one glass of wine. 

After struggling for years with cocaine addiction, Richard kicked the habit in 1982 after wrapping his car around a tree in a crash that almost took his life. 

Richard and Svetlana were married in a courthouse ceremony in Virginia in 2006 while the actor was in town to speak at James Madison University. Svetlana is his third wife. He has three children—Emily, Benjamin, and Harry—with ex-wife Jeramie Rain.
