Actress Kim Delaney (NYPD Blue, ABC's Philly) was arrested just before 8 p.m. on Saturday in Malibu for suspicion of drunk driving after she refused to take a blood-alcohol test, Reuters reports.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Peter Charbonneau told Reuters that a passing motorist spotted the actress driving erratically and called the sheriff's department. The motorist then followed Delaney to her home and waited for the deputies to arrive. When Delaney came out of her house to speak with police, the motorist identified her as the driver.

After she was booked on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and issued a citation, Delaney spent approximately five hours in police custody. The 40-year-old actress was released at about 1 a.m. Sunday, and she has a March 27 court hearing to look forward to.
