Richard Dreyfuss

Richard Dreyfuss' wife has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and hit-and-run.

Svetlana Dreyfuss was detained by cops in Encinitas, California on 2 June (14) after she allegedly smashed her car into a fence, severing a water line, before driving away.

Police managed to track her down two miles (3.22 kilometres) away.

She underwent sobriety tests and was subsequently booked on DUI and hit-and-run charges.

Dreyfuss famously gave up booze in 1982 after blacking out while behind the wheel and crashing his car.
