Jensen Buchanan Arrested Again After Monitor Detects Alcohol (Updated)

Actress Jensen Buchanan, who pleaded guilty last year to driving with a blood-alcohol content more than four times above the legal limit and causing a crash that critically injured an Arizona man, has been jailed for allegedly drinking alcohol while on felony probation.

Buchanan is scheduled to be arraigned on the probation-violation charge Thursday in Santa Maria Superior Court.

She initially was arrested following a two-car crash on Highway 154 near Live Oak Camp, where she was driving the wrong way on May 18, 2016, the California Highway Patrol said.

The driver of the other vehicle, Bradley Asolas, who now lives in Arizona, suffered major injuries and had to be extricated from his vehicle.

He spent more than 30 days in Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, and continues his recovery from the various injuries more than a year later, he told the court.

During the October hearing, the judge sentenced to Buchanan to spend 365 days

The Snes had such games as Super Metroid and Super Mario World. The Amiga? Cannon Fodder, Another World, The Chaos Engine and many more besides.
