Petty Delays D.u.i Case
Actress LORI PETTY has won the right to delay her upcoming driving under the influence (D.U.I) case until next month (Jul09).
The Tank Girl star was arrested in Venice, California in May (09) after she allegedly hit a skateboarder with her car.
Cops breath-tested Petty and found she was over the legal limit.
Earlier this month (Jun09) she was charged with D.U.I with injury, D.U.I with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher with injuries, and driving without insurance. She was due back in court to be arraigned on Wednesday (24Jun09).
Her attorney, Blair Berk, attended a Los Angeles court to request a month-long continuance on the case and the request was granted - meaning Petty will now wait until 28 July (09) for her arraignment hearing, according to Radar Online.
If convicted, Petty faces up to a year in county jail.
