Vivica A. Fox was released from jail early Wednesday after she was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence, authorities said. The 42-year-old actress was pulled over about 11 p.m. Tuesday after her Cadillac SRX passed a patrol car on the Hollywood Freeway at 80 mph — 15 miles above the speed limit, California Highway Patrol Officer Leland Tang said.

Fox was arrested after failing a field sobriety test, he said. She was taken to Van Nuys jail and submitted to two breathalyzer tests.

"The test results indicate her blood-alcohol level was greater than .08 percent," the legal limit in California, Tang said.

Fox was cited and released, and authorities will submit the case to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

A woman who answered the phone at the office of Fox's manager said, "We have no comment on that."

Fox has appeared in "Kill Bill: Vol. 1 ," "Soul Food" and "Independence Day." She also was a contestant on last year's "Dancing With The Stars."
